What your server offers
Your server uses the following features and technologies:
v IBM Director
IBM Director is a workgroup-hardware-management tool that you can use to
centrally manage xSeries servers. For more information about IBM Director, see
the IBM Director publications on the IBM Director CD.
v IBM Enterprise X-Architecture technology
IBM X-Architecture technology combines proven, innovative IBM designs to make
your Intel-processor-based server powerful, scalable, and reliable. For more
information, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/eserver/xseries/xarchitecture/enterprise/index.html.
v IBM ServerGuide™ Setup and Installation CD
The ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD that comes with your server provides
programs to help you set up your server and install the operating system. The
ServerGuide program detects installed hardware options and provides the correct
configuration programs and device drivers. For more information about the
ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, see “Using the ServerGuide Setup and
Installation CD” on page 15.
v Integrated network support
Your server comes with an integrated Intel Ethernet controller, which supports
connection to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps network. For more
information, see “Configuring the Ethernet controller” on page 20.
v Large data-storage and hot-swap capability
Your server supports up to six 25.4 mm (1-inch) slim-high, 3.5-inch hot-swap
hard disk drives in the hot-swap bays. With the hot-swap feature, you can add,
remove, or replace hard disk drives without turning off the server.
v Large system memory capacity
The memory bus supports up to 8 GB of system memory. The memory controller
supports error correcting code (ECC) for up to four industry-standard, 2.5 V,
184-pin, double-data rate (DDR), PC2100 CL2.5 (downward compatible with
PC1600 CL2), registered, synchronous dynamic random-access memory
(SDRAM) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs). The memory controller also
provides Chipkill™ memory protection if all DIMMs are of the type x4. Chipkill
memory protection is a technology that protects the system from a single chip
failure on a DIMM.
v Light Path Diagnostics feature
The Light Path Diagnostics feature provides LEDs to help you isolate problems.
For more information, see the section about the Light Path Diagnostics feature in
the Option Installation Guide.
v Redundant connection
The addition of an optional network interface card (NIC) provides a failover
capability to a redundant Ethernet connection. If a problem occurs with the
primary Ethernet connection, all Ethernet traffic associated with this primary
connection is automatically switched to the redundant NIC. If the appropriate
device drivers are installed, this switching occurs without data loss and without
user intervention.
Chapter 1. Introducing the IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670
5
v Redundant cooling and power capabilities
The server supports up to eight hot-swap fans. Eight fans provide redundant
cooling. The hot-swap capabilities of the fans in your server enable continued
operation if one of the fans fails. You can also replace a failing fan without
turning off the server.
The server supports up to two 514-watt power supplies, which ensure
redundancy and hot-swap capability for a typical configuration.
v ServeRAID™ support
Your server supports ServeRAID adapters to create redundant array of
independent disks (RAID) configurations.
v Symmetric multiprocessing (SMP)
Your server supports up to two Intel Xeon microprocessors. If the server comes
with only one microprocessor, you can install an additional microprocessor to
enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
v Systems-management capabilities
Your server comes with features that a network administrator or file server can
use to remotely manage and control the server. Some of the features include
Wake on LAN®, IBM Director, Remote Administration, and System Migration
Assistant. See the information provided with your system-management software
for more information.
If your server is connected to an Advanced System Management (ASM)
interconnect network that is managed by a Remote Supervisor Adapter, you can
view the system health; turn on, turn off, and restart the server; view the error
log; view the vital product data; and send alerts over the ASM interconnect
network. To obtain an optional Remote Supervisor Adapter, contact your IBM
reseller or IBM marketing representative.

Setup and configuration overview
When you use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, you do not need setup
diskettes. You can use the CD to configure any supported IBM server model. The
ServerGuide program checks your system BIOS, service processors, and other
system hardware to determine if system updates are available. The setup program
provides a list of tasks that are required to set up your server model. On a server
with a ServeRAID adapter or integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities, you
can run the SCSI RAID configuration program to create logical drives.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
When you start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, the program performs
the following tasks:
v The ServerGuide program prompts you for your language, country, and keyboard
layout. (This information is stored and later passed to the operating-system
installation program.)
v The ServerGuide program displays choices for running the configuration
programs. For example:
– The Express Configuration method runs the required programs for your
server, based on the hardware that is detected.
– The Custom Configuration method displays all programs that are available for
your server, and you decide which programs to run.
– The Replicated Configuration method provides the option of duplicating your
setup selections to other servers that are the same model.
v If you select the Custom Configuration method, the following features are
optional. If you select the Express Configuration method, some or all of these
features are run, depending on the hardware that is detected:
16
IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
– The Set Date and Time feature is provided so that you do not have to use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to access these settings.
– The Clear Hard Disks feature is provided so you can delete all partitions on all
hard disk drives.
– The ServerGuide program checks the server BIOS code and microcode
(firmware) levels for supported options and then checks the CD for a newer
level. The CD content might be newer than the BIOS code and firmware level.
The ServerGuide program can perform a flash update of the BIOS code and
supported microcode (firmware) options without using diskettes.
– The SCSI RAID configuration program starts, leading you through the entire
configuration process.
– The ServerGuide program creates a System Partition on the default drive.
v The ServerGuide program displays a confirmation summary, so that you will
know when you have completed all the required tasks. Then, you are ready to
install your operating system.
Notes:
1. Plug and Play adapters are configured automatically. Non-Plug and Play
adapters or non-IBM adapters might require switch settings, additional device
drivers, and installation after the operating system is installed. See the
documentation that comes with the adapter.
2. Diagnostics for your server come in BIOS code or on a separate diagnostics
CD.
System Partition
The ServerGuide program creates a 50 MB System Partition on the default drive.
The System Partition contains server-specific utility programs such as
service-processor disk operating system (DOS) utilities, system diagnostics, flash
BIOS updates, and other programs. Programs in the System Partition vary by
server model, and not all server models run utility programs from the System
Partition. To determine which ones do, start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation
CD and view the online overview.
After setup is complete, you can access programs in the System Partition by
restarting the server and pressing Alt+F1 when the prompt is displayed. The
System Partition menu displays the programs that are available on your server
model.
Typical operating-system installation
You can use the ServerGuide program to shorten your installation time. The
ServerGuide program provides the device drivers that are required for your
hardware and for the operating system that you are installing. This section
describes a typical ServerGuide operating-system installation.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
1. After you have completed the setup process, the operating-system installation
program starts. (You will need your operating-system CD to complete the
installation.)
2. The ServerGuide program stores information about the server model, service
processor, hard disk drive controllers, and network adapters. Then, the program
checks the CD for newer device drivers. This information is stored and then
passed to the operating-system installation program.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
17
3. With some operating-system installations, you can create an operating-system
replication diskette for setting up additional servers. This diskette contains the
Internet protocol (IP) address, server name, and other selections.
4. The ServerGuide program presents operating-system partition options that are
based on your operating-system selection and the installed hard disk drives.
5. If you are installing the operating system from diskettes, the ServerGuide
program lists the diskettes that you must create and the optional device-driver
diskettes (for installed adapters or controllers) that you might want to create.
6. The ServerGuide program prompts you to insert your operating-system CD and
restart the server. At this point, the installation program for the operating system
takes control to complete the installation.
Setting up or updating multiple servers
You can use the ServerGuide program to create diskettes that help you set up or
update multiple servers. You can modify information on the diskettes as you use
them to set up or update other servers.
Note: Availability and function can vary by server model and by the hardware that
is installed.
You can create a setup-replication diskette, which contains your hardware
configuration selections. Use this diskette to replicate selections to other servers
that are of the same model.
You can create an operating-system replication diskette, which contains information
that you need to complete multiple installations. Not all operating systems support
operating-system replication diskettes.
Installing your operating system without ServerGuide
If you have already configured the server hardware and you decide not to use the
ServerGuide program to install your operating system, complete the following steps
to download the latest operating-system installation instructions from the IBM
Support Web page:
1. Go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
2. Under Browse, click Servers.

Configuring the Ethernet controller
The Ethernet controller is integrated on the system board. It provides an interface
for connecting to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1-Gbps network and provides full-duplex
(FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on
the network. If the Ethernet ports in your server support auto-negotiation, the
controller detects the data-transfer rate (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-T)
and duplex mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the network and automatically
operates at that rate and mode.
You do not need to set any jumpers or configure the controller. However, you must
install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the controller. For
20

device drivers and information about configuring the Ethernet controller, see the
Intel Ethernet Software CD that comes with your server. For updated information
about configuring the controller, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
Updating the integrated system management firmware
To update the integrated system management firmware for the integrated system
management processor (ISMP), download the Integrated System Management
Firmware Update Utility program for your server from the IBM Support Web site at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/. Run the Integrated System Management Firmware
Update Utility program to create a diskette to use to update the firmware. The

2. Insert the diskette into the diskette drive.
3. Turn on the server. If the server does not start from the diskette, use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to configure the diskette drive as a startup
device. (See “Using the Configuration/Setup Utility program” on page 9.) Then,
start again at step 1.
4. From the main menu, select Update System Management Firmware and
press Enter.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the update.
If there is an error in updating the firmware, try the update again.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-06 8/2000
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The
warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to
Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller.
The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades,
elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term “Machine” does not
include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed
subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties
apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement
of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived
or limited by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
The IBM Warranty for Machines: IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from
defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published
Specifications (“Specifications”). The warranty period for a Machine is a specified,
fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt
is the Date of Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded.
Extent of Warranty: The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a
Machine resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or
operating environment, improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a
product for which IBM is not responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or
alteration of Machine or parts identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO
WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty: IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free
operation of a Machine. Any technical or other support provided for a Machine
under warranty, such as assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those
regarding Machine set-up and installation, will be provided WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service: To obtain warranty service for a Machine, contact IBM or your
reseller. If you do not register your Machine with IBM, you may be required to
present proof of purchase.
28
IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
During the warranty period, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, provides without charge certain types of repair and exchange
service to keep Machines in, or restore them to, conformance with their
Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the available types of service
for a Machine based on its country of installation. At its discretion, IBM or your
reseller will 1) either repair or exchange the failing Machine and 2) provide the
service either at your location or a service center. IBM or your reseller will also
manage and install selected engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
Some parts of IBM Machines are designated as Customer Replaceable Units
(called “CRUs”), e.g., keyboards, memory, or hard disk drives. IBM ships CRUs to
you for replacement by you. You must return all defective CRUs to IBM within 30
days of your receipt of the replacement CRU. You are responsible for downloading
designated Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code updates from an IBM
Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that
IBM provides.
When warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or
your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours.
You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement
may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally
equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service
status of the replaced item. Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the
removal of parts and their return to IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will
assume the warranty service status of the removed part.
Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.
You also agree to
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
prevent its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided:
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM’s
possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the
transportation charges.
Neither IBM nor your reseller is responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary
or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM or your
reseller for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine
prior to its return.
Limitation of Liability: Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on
IBM’s part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each
such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages
from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other
Appendix A. Warranty information
29
contract or tort claim), except for any liability that cannot be waived or limited by
applicable laws, IBM is liable for no more than
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and
tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the charges (if recurring,
12 months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is subject of the claim. For
purposes of this item, the term “Machine” includes Machine Code and Licensed
Internal Code.
This limit also applies to IBM’s suppliers and your reseller. It is the maximum for
which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively responsible.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN
THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE
TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT
DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST
PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR YOUR
RESELLER IS INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION
MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Governing Law: Both you and IBM consent to the application of the laws of the
country in which you acquired the Machine to govern, interpret, and enforce all of
your and IBM’s rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in any manner
to, the subject matter of this Agreement, without regard to conflict of law principles.
