1.3Special Features
This section describes the health monitoring features of the X11DPU-X/-XLL motherboard.
The motherboard has an onboard System Hardware Monitor chip that supports system health
monitoring.
Recovery from AC Power Loss
The Basic I/O System (BIOS) provides a setting that determines how the system will respond
when AC power is lost and then restored to the system. You can choose for the system to
remain powered off (in which case you must press the power switch to turn it back on), or
for it to automatically return to the power-on state. See the Advanced BIOS Setup section
for this setting. The default setting is Last State.
19
Super X11DPU-X/-XLL User's Manual
1.4System Health Monitoring
This section describes the health monitoring features of the X11DPU-X/-XLL motherboard.
The motherboard has an onboard Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) chip that
supports system health monitoring. Once a voltage becomes unstable, a warning is given or
an error message is sent to the screen. The user can adjust the voltage thresholds to define
the sensitivity of the voltage monitor.
Onboard Voltage Monitors
The onboard voltage monitor will continuously scan crucial voltage levels. Once a voltage
becomes unstable, it will give a warning or send an error message to the screen. Users can
adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity of the voltage monitor. Real time readings
of these voltage levels are all displayed in BIOS.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
The system health monitor embedded in the BMC chip can check the RPM status of the
cooling fans. The CPU and chassis fans are controlled via lPMI.
Environmental Temperature Control
System Health sensors in the BMC monitor the temperatures and voltage settings of onboard
processors and the system in real time via the IPMI interface. Whenever the temperature of
the CPU or the system exceeds a user-defined threshold, system/CPU cooling fans will be
turned on to prevent the CPU or the system from overheating.
Note: To avoid possible system overheating, please be sure to provide adequate airflow to your system.
System Resource Alert
This feature is available when used with SuperDoctor 5®. SuperDoctor 5 is used to notify the
user of certain system events. For example, you can configure SuperDoctor 5 to provide you
with warnings when the system temperature, CPU temperatures, voltages and fan speeds
go beyond a predefined range.
20
Chapter 1: Introduction
1.5ACPI Features
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. The ACPI specification defines
a flexible and abstract hardware interface that provides a standard way to integrate power
management features throughout a computer system including its hardware, operating system
and application software. This enables the system to automatically turn on and off peripherals
such as network cards, hard disk drives and printers.
In addition to enabling operating system-directed power management, ACPI also provides a
generic system event mechanism for Plug and Play and an operating system-independent
interface for configuration control. ACPI leverages the Plug and Play BIOS data structures
while providing a processor architecture-independent implementation that is compatible with
Windows 10, and Windows 2012/R2 operating systems.
1.6Power Supply
As with all computer products, a stable power source is necessary for proper and reliable
operation. It is even more important for processors that have high CPU clock rates. In areas
where noisy power transmission is present, you may choose to install a line filter to shield
the computer from noise. It is recommended that you also install a power surge protector to
help avoid problems caused by power surges.
1.7Super I/O
The Super I/O (ASpeed AST2500 chip) provides a high-speed, 16550 compatible serial
communication port (UART), which supports serial infrared communication. The UART
includes send/receive FIFO, a programmable baud rate generator, complete modem control
capability, and a processor interrupt system. The UART provides legacy speed with baud
rate of up to 115.2 Kbps as well as an advanced speed with baud rates of 250 K, 500 K, or
1 Mb/s, supporting higher speed modems.
The Super I/O provides functions that comply with ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power
Interface), which includes support of legacy and ACPI power management through a SMI
or SCI function pin. It also features auto power management to reduce power consumption.
21
Super X11DPU-X/-XLL User's Manual
1.8Advanced Power Management
The following new advanced power management features are supported by the motherboard.
Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (IPNM)
Available when the Supermicro Power Manager (SPM) is installed, Intel's Intelligent Power
Node Manager (IPNM) provides your system with real-time thermal control and power
management for maximum energy efficiency. Although IPNM Specification Version 2.0/3.0
is supported by the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller), your system must also have
IPNM-compatible Management Engine (ME) firmware installed to use this feature.
Note: Support for IPNM 2.0/3.0 support is dependent on the power supply used in
the system.
Management Engine (ME)
The Management Engine, which is an ARC controller embedded in the IOH (I/O Hub), provides
Server Platform Services (SPS) to your system. The services provided by SPS are different
from those provided by the ME on client platforms.

2.1Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­
ponents. To avoid damaging
your motherboard and your system, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following
measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
Precautions
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic bag.
•Handle the board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory
modules or gold contacts.
•When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
•For grounding purposes, make sure that your chassis provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and the motherboard.
•Use only the correct type of CMOS onboard battery as specified by the manufacturer. Do
not install the CMOS battery upside down, which may result in a possible explosion.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When unpacking
the motherboard, make sure that the person handling it is static protected.

2.4 Memory Support and Installation
Notes: Check the Supermicro website for recommended memory modules. Exercise
extreme care when installing or removing DIMM modules to prevent any damage.
Memory Support
The X11DPU-X supports up to 2TB of 3DS LRDIMM (3DS Load Reduced DIMM), LRDIMM
(Load Reduced DIMM), 3DSRDIMM (3DS Registered DIMM), RDIMM (Registered DIMM),
NV-DIMM (Non-Volatile DIMM) DDR4 (288-pin) ECC 2666/2400/2133 MHz memory modules
in 16 slots. The X11DPU-XLL supports up to 2TB of LRDIMM (Load Reduced DIMM), RDIMM
(Registered DIMM) DDR4 (288-pin) ECC 2666/2400/2133 MHz memory modules in 16 slots
(Note: NV-DIMM, 3DSLRDIMM and 3DSRDIMM are supported when requested by OEM
only). The black DIMM slots are reserved for future NVDIMM support. Populating the DIMM
slots in a 2DPC (two DIMMs per channel) configuration with pairs of memory modules of the
same type, speed and size will result in interleaved memory, which improves performance.
Notes: 1. When installing DIMMs in a 2DPC memory configuration, first populate the
blue memory slot, which is the first slot of a channel, followed by the black slot. 2.
Using an unbalanced memory topology by installing two DIMMs in one channel while
installing one DIMM in another channel will result in reduced memory performance. 3.
Memory speed is dependent on the type of processors used in your system.

Onboard Fan Header
Eight 4-pin fan headers (FAN1~6, FANA, FANB) are located on the motherboard to provide
CPU/system cooling. These fan headers support both 3-pin fans and 4-pin fans; however,
onboard fan speed control is available only when all 4-pin fans are used in the motherboard.
Fan speed control is supported by a thermal management setting in the BMC (Baseboard
Management Controller). See the table below for pin definitions.

I-SATA 3.0 and S-SATA 3.0 Ports
The X11DPU-X/-XLL motherboard has eight I-SATA 3.0 ports (I-SATA0-3, I-SATA4-7) and
six S-SATA ports (S-SATA0-3, S-SATA4, S-SATA5) on the motherboard. These SATA ports
are supported by the Intel C621 chipset. S-SATA4/S-SATA5 can be used with Supermicro
SuperDOMs which are yellow SATA DOM connectors with power pins built in, and do not
require external power cables. Supermicro SuperDOMs are backward-compatible with regular
SATA HDDs or SATA DOMs that need external power cables. All these SATA ports provide
serial-link signal connections, which are faster than the connections of Parallel ATA. Please
note that X11DPU-XLL motherboard does not support onboard SATA.

2.8Jumper Settings
How Jumpers Work
To modify the operation of the motherboard, jumpers can be used to choose between optional
settings. Jumpers create shorts between two pins to change the function of the connector.
Pin 1 is identified with a square solder pad on the printed circuit board. See the diagram
at right for an example of jumping pins 1 and 2. Refer to the motherboard layout page for
jumper locations.
Note: On two-pin jumpers, "Closed" means the jumper is on and "Open" means the
jumper is off the pins.

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS, which will also clear any passwords. Instead of pins, this jumper
consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally clearing the contents of CMOS.
To Clear CMOS
1. First power down the system and unplug the power cord(s).
2. Remove the cover of the chassis to access the motherboard.
3. Remove the onboard battery from the motherboard.
4. Short the CMOS pads with a metal object such as a small screwdriver for at least four
seconds.
5. Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device).
6. Replace the cover, reconnect the power cord(s), and power on the system.
Note: Clearing CMOS will also clear all passwords.
Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.

Troubleshooting
3.1Troubleshooting Procedures
Use the following procedures to troubleshoot your system. If you have followed all of the
procedures below and still need assistance, refer to the ‘Technical Support Procedures’ and/
or ‘Returning Merchandise for Service’ section(s) in this chapter. Always disconnect the AC
power cord before adding, changing or installing any non hot-swap hardware components.
Before Power On
1. Check that the power LED on the motherboard is on.
2. Make sure that the power connector is connected to your power supply.
3. Make sure that no short circuits exist between the motherboard and chassis.
4. Disconnect all cables from the motherboard, including those for the keyboard and
mouse.
5. Remove all add-on cards.
6. Install a CPU, a heatsink and connect the internal speaker and the power LED to the
motherboard. Check all jumper settings as well. (Make sure that the heatsink is fully
seated.)
7. Use the correct type of onboard CMOS battery (CR2032) as recommended by the
manufacturer. To avoid possible explosion, do not install the CMOS battery upside down.
No Power
1. Make sure that no short circuits exist between the motherboard and the chassis.
2. Verify that all jumpers are set to their default positions.
3. Check that the 115V/230V switch on the power supply is properly set.
4. Turn the power switch on and off to test the system.
5. The battery on your motherboard may be old. Check to verify that it still supplies
~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
62
Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
No Video
1. If the power is on but you have no video, remove all the add-on cards and cables.
2. Use the speaker to determine if any beep codes exist. Refer to Appendix A for details on
beep codes.
Note: If you are a system integrator, VAR or OEM, a POST diagnostics card is recommended. For I/O port 80h codes, refer to Appendix B.
System Boot Failure
If the system does not display POST (Power-On-Self-Test) or does not respond after the
power is turned on, check the following:
1. Check for any error beep from the motherboard speaker.
•If there is no error beep, try to turn on the system without DIMM modules installed. If there
is still no error beep, replace the motherboard.
•If there are error beeps, clear the CMOS settings by unplugging the power cord and contacting both pads on the CMOS Clear Jumper (JBT1). Refer to chapter 2.
2. Remove all components from the motherboard, especially the DIMM modules. Make
sure that system power is on and that memory error beeps are activated.
3. Turn on the system with only one DIMM module installed. If the system boots, check for
bad DIMM modules or slots by following the Memory Errors Troubleshooting procedure
in this Chapter.
Memory Errors
1. Make sure that the DIMM modules are properly and fully installed.
2. Confirm that you are using the correct memory. Also, it is recommended that you use
the same memory type and speed for all DIMMs in the system. See Section 2.4 for
memory details.
3. Check for bad DIMM modules or slots by swapping modules between slots and noting
the results.
4. Check the power supply voltage 115V/230V switch.
63
Super X11DPU-X/-XLL User's Manual
Losing the System's Setup Configuration
1. Make sure that you are using a high quality power supply. A poor quality power supply
may cause the system to lose the CMOS setup information. Refer to Section 1.6 for
details on recommended power supplies.
2. The battery on your motherboard may be old. Check to verify that it still supplies
~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
3. If the above steps do not fix the setup configuration problem, contact your vendor for
repairs.
When the System Becomes Unstable
A. If the system becomes unstable during or after OS installation, check the following:
1. CPU/BIOS support: Make sure that your CPU is supported and that you have the latest

Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
3. Using the minimum configuration for troubleshooting: Remove all unnecessary
components (starting with add-on cards first), and use the minimum configuration (but
with a CPU and a memory module installed) to identify the trouble areas. Refer to the
steps listed in Section A above for proper troubleshooting procedures.
4. Identifying bad components by isolating them: If necessary, remove a component in
question from the chassis, and test it in isolation to make sure that it works properly.
Replace a bad component with a good one.
5. Check and change one component at a time instead of changing several items at the
same time. This will help isolate and identify the problem.
6. To find out if a component is good, swap this component with a new one to see if the
system will work properly. If so, then the old component is bad. You can also install the
component in question in another system. If the new system works, the component is
good and the old system has problems.

Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer: The X11DPU-X motherboard supports up to 2TB of 3DS LRDIMM (3DS Load
Reduced DIMM), LRDIMM (Load Reduced DIMM), 3DSRDIMM (3DS Registered DIMM),
RDIMM (Registered DIMM), NV-DIMM (Non-Volatile DIMM) DDR4 (288-pin) ECC
2666/2400/2133 MHz memory modules in 16 slots. The X11DPU-XLL motherboard supports
up to 2TB of LRDIMM (Load Reduced DIMM) and RDIMM (Registered DIMM) DDR4 (288pin) ECC 2666/2400/2133 MHz memory modules in 16 slots. (Note: NV-DIMM, 3DSLRDIMM
and 3DSRDIMM are supported when requested by OEM only). See Section 2.4 for details
on installing memory.
Question: How do I update my BIOS?
Answer: It is recommended that you do not upgrade your BIOS if you are not experiencing
any problems with your system. Updated BIOS files are located on our website at http://www.
supermicro.com. Please check our BIOS warning message and the information on how to
update your BIOS on our website. Select your motherboard model and download the BIOS
file to your computer. Also, check the current BIOS revision to make sure that it is newer
than your BIOS before downloading. You can choose from the zip file and the .exe file. If
you choose the zip BIOS file, please unzip the BIOS file onto a bootable USB device. Run
the batch file using the format FLASH.BAT filename.rom from your bootable USB device to
flash the BIOS. Then, your system will automatically reboot.
Question: Why can't I turn off the power using the momentary power on/off switch?
Answer: The instant power off function is controlled in BIOS by the Power Button Mode
setting. When the On/Off feature is enabled, the motherboard will have instant off capabilities
as long as the BIOS has control of the system. When the Standby or Suspend feature is
enabled or when the BIOS is not in control such as during memory count (the first screen
that appears when the system is turned on), the momentary on/off switch must be held for
more than four seconds to shut down the system. This feature is required to implement the
ACPI features on the motherboard.
3.4Returning Merchandise for Service
A receipt or copy of your invoice marked with the date of purchase is required before any
warranty service will be rendered. You can obtain service by calling your vendor for a Returned
Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. When returning to the manufacturer, the RMA
number should be prominently displayed on the outside of the shipping carton and mailed
prepaid or hand-carried. Shipping and handling charges will be applied for all orders that
must be mailed when service is complete.
For faster service, RMA authorizations may be requested online (http://www.supermicro.com/
support/rma/).

by the TPM or a manufacturer to be constrained to an authentic TPM device that is attached
to an authentic platform. A primary key can be an encrypted, and a certificate can be created
using TPM2_ ActivateCredential. It allows the user to independently enable "flag, policy, and
authorization value" without involving other hierarchies. A user with privacy concerns can
disable the endorsement hierarchy while still using the storage hierarchy for TPM applications
and permitting the platform software to use the TPM. The options are Enabled and Disabled.

Appendix C: UEFI BIOS Recovery
Appendix D
UEFI BIOS Recovery
Warning: Do not upgrade the BIOS unless your system has a BIOS-related issue. Flashing
the wrong BIOS can cause irreparable damage to the system. In no event shall Supermicro
be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages arising from a BIOS
update. If you need to update the BIOS, do not shut down or reset the system while the BIOS
is updating to avoid possible boot failure.
C.1Overview
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) provides a software-based interface
between the operating system and the platform firmware in the pre-boot environment. The
UEFI specification supports an architecture-independent mechanism that will allow the UEFI
OS loader stored in an add-on card to boot the system. The UEFI offers clean, hands-off
management to a computer during system boot.
C.2Recovering the UEFI BIOS Image
A UEFI BIOS flash chip consists of a recovery BIOS block and a main BIOS block (a main
BIOS image). The recovery block contains critical BIOS codes, including memory detection
and recovery codes for the user to flash a healthy BIOS image if the original main BIOS image
is corrupted. When the system power is turned on, the recovery block codes execute first.
Once this process is complete, the main BIOS code will continue with system initialization
and the remaining POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines.
Note 1: Follow the BIOS recovery instructions below for BIOS recovery when the main
BIOS block crashes.
Note 2: When the BIOS recovery block crashes, you will need to follow the procedures
to make a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) request. (For a RMA request,
please see section 3.5 for more information). Also, you may use the Supermicro Update Manager (SUM) Out-of-Band (OOB) (https://www.supermicro.com.tw/products/
nfo/SMS_SUM.cfm) to reflash the BIOS.
C.3Recovering the Main BIOS Block with a USB Device
This feature allows the user to recover the main BIOS image using a USB-attached device without additional utilities
used. A USB flash device such as a USB Flash Drive, or a USB CD/DVD ROM/RW device can be used for this
purpose. However, a USB Hard Disk drive cannot be used for BIOS recovery at this time.

The file system supported by the recovery block is FAT (including FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32)
which is installed on a bootable or non-bootable USB-attached device. However, the BIOS
might need several minutes to locate the SUPER.ROM file if the media size becomes too
large due to the huge volumes of folders and files stored in the device.
To perform UEFI BIOS recovery using a USB-attached device, follow the instructions below.
1. Using a different machine, copy the "Super.ROM" binary image file into the Root "\"
directory of a USB device or a writable CD/DVD.
Notes: 1. If you cannot locate the "Super.ROM" file in your drive disk, visit our website
at www.supermicro.com to download the BIOS package. Extract the BIOS binary image into a USB flash device and rename it "Super.ROM" for the BIOS recovery use. 2.
Before recovering the main BIOS image, confirm that the "Super.ROM" binary image
file you download is the same version or a close version meant for your motherboard.
2. Insert the USB device that contains the new BIOS image ("Super.ROM") into your USB
drive and reset the system when the following screen appears.
3. After locating the healthy BIOS binary image, the system will enter the BIOS Recovery
menu as shown below.
