1.2 Basic Definitions
Ultra Enterprise server systems use a centerplane. Electrical traces embedded
in the centerplane serve both the front and rear sides of the centerplane;
therefore, the orientation of the sockets on the rear of the centerplane is
opposite the orientation of sockets on the front of the centerplane.
Boards in the front of the card cage are installed component side down, and
boards in the rear of the card cage are installed component side up. Similarly,
the orientation of the power/cooling modules installed in the rear of the
system chassis is opposite the orientation of power/cooling modules in the
front of the system chassis.
Since boards, modules, and power/cooling modules may be located on either
side of the Enterprise server chassis centerplane, the terms “front,” “rear,”
“right,” and “left” are defined in Table 1-1.

!
Caution – The peripheral power supply provides the precharge voltages
required for hot-plug. Do not attempt hot-plug of a system component if the
power supply is missing or inoperative. Use prtdiag(1M)to determine the
status of the peripheral power supply.
!
Caution – If the message: NOTICE: Hot Plug not supported in this
system is displayed during boot, do NOT attempt hot-plug in this system or
damage to the hardware will occur.
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996

Caution – Remove a board from a powered on system only after the ASR
software has disabled the board. If a board has not been disabled by the ASR
software, then the operating system should be halted and the system powered
off prior to board removal. See Chapter 12, “Powering Off and On” and then
see Section 3.4.1.2, “Removing a Board from a Nonpowered On System.”
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996

1. Ensure that the board has been disabled by the ASR software. See
Section 3.3, “Hot-Plug Feature.”
Once disabled by ASR, one of two results occurs:
• The three LEDs on the board are not lit (board has no power).
• The outer two green LEDs are not lit and the middle yellow LED is lit
(board in low power mode).
Note – System software operates such that the LED pattern described is the
same for a board that is component side down (installed in front of card cage)
or component side up (installed in rear of card cage).
2. Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to mechanically release the board from the
system card cage.
Insert the screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot (the slots are located
on the left and right sides of the board front panel) and then turn a quarter
turn so that the arrow points to the unlocked position. See Figure 3-4.

3.4.2 Installing a Board
3.4.2.1 Board Slot Selection
Note – Logically there is no difference between the board slots in the front or
rear of the card cage, and each slot can accept any board type. It is suggested
that CPU/Memory boards be installed in the front slots, and I/O and disk
boards be installed in the rear slots because of cabling. Should the need arise,
however, any of these three board types can be placed in any of the numbered
board slots, with the exception of slot 1. Slot 1 should be used by the first I/O
board because it is the only slot connected to the onboard SCSI devices.
The first CPU/Memory board is placed in slot 0, followed sequentially by all
remaining even numbered slots. If there are boards remaining, they can be
installed sequentially in odd numbered slots, if available, in the system rear
(with the exception of slot 1 as noted above). See Figure 3-6 and Figure 3-7 for
board slot locations.
For CPU/Memory boards being placed in the rear of the system, ensure that
the component side is up. If the boards are placed in the front of the system,
ensure that the component side is down. See Figure 3-8.

Note – All empty board slots in Enterprise 4000 or 5000 systems must have a
filler panel installed to ensure proper cooling. All empty slots in Enterprise
6000 systems must have load boards installed.
3.4.2.3 Powered or NonPowered On System
1. Carefully insert the board (component side down if in front; component
side up if in the rear) in the proper slot in the card cage, ensuring that the
board does not slip out of the left and right card guides.
See Figure 3-8.

2. Ensure that both extraction levers are in the insert position (arrow
pointing outward), and that the quarter-turn access slots are unlocked
(arrow indicates unlocked position) as you slide the board toward the
centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 3-4 and Figure 3-5. The board will not seat fully unless the levers
are in this starting position and both quarter-turn access slots are unlocked.
!
Caution – DO NOT FORCE any board into a slot; it can cause damage to the
board and system. The board should insert and seat smoothly. If it binds,
remove the board and inspect the card cage slot for any obvious obstructions.
Also inspect both the board and the centerplane for bent pins or other damage.
3. Push the board into the card cage, then simultaneously press both
extraction levers to seat the board on the centerplane.
Pushing both levers simultaneously avoids twisting the board and bending
the connector pins, and mates the board centerplane connector to the
matching receptacle on the centerplane. Do not press on board front panel to
seat it—doing so will damage the connector pins.
4. Mechanically lock the board to the system chassis by inserting a Phillips
#1 screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot and then turning to the
locked position.
See Figure 3-4.
5. Once the board has been installed, a message similar to the following will
be displayed on the monitor (if the system is powered on):
Example depicts screen output when a new CPU/Memory board has been
hot-plugged into slot 6 of an operating Enterprise system:
NOTICE: CPU Board Hotplugged into Slot 6
NOTICE: Board 6 is ready to remove
This screen output indicates that the board has been detected by the system
and is in the low power mode. Additionally, any subsequent prtdiag(1M)
output would include information for board slot 6. Again, note that the
system will not use the new board until the system is rebooted.
6. Reboot the system now or schedule a later time to reboot when system
disruption will be minimized.

3.4.3 UltraSPARC Modules
Each CPU/Memory board has four connectors for UltraSPARC modules (up to
two modules per board, two connectors per module). For each module, there is
a connector with 144 pins and a connector with 288 pins. See Figure 3-9.
3.4.4 Handling Precautions
The following precautions should be exercised when handling UltraSPARC
modules:
•
•
•
UltraSPARC modules are static-sensitive and a grounding wrist strap field
kit must be used when handling the modules.
Always handle the modules by the edges and not by the smaller black heat
sinks that break easily if handled improperly.
Do not handle the modules by touching the gold pins on the compression
connectors. Natural oils on the hands cause these connectors to oxidize and
corrode over a period of time, resulting in the need for module cleaning or
replacement.

3.4.4.1 Removing a Module
Each module is locked to the main board with a single standoff and is
connected to the main board by two connectors. The pins within the connectors
are compressed to the corresponding board mating surfaces by a metal
compression bar which, when secured with screws, compresses the module
connector pins to the board mating surfaces. See Figure 3-10.
Figure 3-10 Ultra SPARC Module Connector Detail
1. Use the procedures in Section 3.4.1, “Removing a Board,” to remove the
applicable CPU/Memory board.
Warning – The heatsinks on the UltraSPARC modules may be hot. Use caution
when removing or installing UltraSPARC modules and avoid contact.

2. Use a 3/32 Hex driver to loosen all screws on each of the compression
connectors on the module to be removed (three screws for the 288 pin
connector, two screws for the 144 pin connector).
See Figure 3-9.
3. Lift the module straight up, off the board mating surface and the single
standoff that locks the module to the board.
Use pressure applied with fingers to assist in removing module from
standoff. See Figure 3-11.

3.4.4.2 Installing a Module
To maximize performance when installing UltraSPARC modules on a
CPU/Memory board, use all CPU 0 connectors on the lowest numbered slot to
the highest numbered slot. After this, if there are modules remaining, use the
CPU 1 connectors in the same order.
1. Take the UltraSPARC module out of the protective packaging and inspect
for dust on the connectors.
If necessary, clean the connectors with a dry, stiff toothbrush.
2. Remove the applicable CPU/Memory board as indicated in Section 3.4.1,
“Removing a Board.”
3. Inspect the board module mating surface. If the surface requires cleaning,
use a dry, stiff toothbrush to clean debris from the mating surfaces.
Note – There are miniature silver alignment pins on the compression
connectors which, when the module is properly seated, align with related
receptacles on the mating surfaces of the CPU/Memory board. In addition,
there is a gold standoff mounted on the CPU/Memory board opposite the
module’s smaller board connector. This acts as a standoff for the module as
well as an alignment pin.
4. Align the module over the two board receptacles using the single standoff
as well as the alignment pins located on the module compression
connector as a guide.
See Figure 3-10 and Figure 3-11.
5. Holding the module by the edges, rest it on the board standoff, aligning
the compression connectors with the screws.
Firmly but gently press the module straight down until the standoff post
snaps into place and the module connectors are fully seated.
6. Tighten the 3/32 hex screws of the module in two stages:
a. Tighten to 3 inch-pounds in the tightening sequence as follows:

3.4.5.2 Installing a Memory Module
Requirements
All banks must have the same size SIMMs, however, SIMMs from different
manufactures are interchangeable in a single bank if the SIMMs all have the
same capacity and speed. Sort the SIMMs into banks of 8 using the same size
SIMMs.

Maximizing Performance
The following guidelines will result in optimal memory interleaving across
boards for performance. These guidelines are for optimal performance and are
not requirements for a functional system. The guidelines apply to systems with
no SIMMS installed and when adding SIMMs to a system; if you are adding
SIMMs, you may need to move some SIMMs to meet the guidelines.
1. Install one bank on each board before installing the second bank on any
board.
It does not matter whether the first bank is bank 0 or bank 1.
2. Begin with the largest density banks first (128 Mbyte SIMMs), continue
with medium sized banks (32 Mbyte SIMMs), and finish with the smallest
banks (8 Mbyte SIMMs).
3. If there is remaining memory, start filling the second banks on the boards
in the same order as the first banks.
Installation
1. Place the CPU/Memory board on which the SIMM is to be installed on an
antistatic mat.
2. Carefully remove the new SIMM from its protective packaging and place
it on an antistatic surface.
The bag that the SIMM is packed in makes a good antistatic surface.
3. Press down on the ejector levers at both ends of the SIMM connector slot
that will receive the new SIMM.
The connector slot will not accept the SIMM unless the levers are in the
insert position. See Figure 3-15.
4. Align the SIMM with the slot.
Hold the SIMM by its edges and orient it so that the two notches at the
bottom of the SIMM line up with the two tabs in the SIMM connector. See
Figure 3-15.
5. Place your thumbs on the top edge of the SIMM and push the SIMM
firmly into its connector.
See Figure 3-16.

Do not use an oscilloscope probe on the components. The soldered pins are
easily damaged or shorted by the probe point.
Transport the board in an antistatic bag.
Be careful of small parts located on the component side of the board.
Be careful not to drag boards across surfaces as board components are easily
damaged.
Caution – The heatsinks on the board can be damaged by incorrect handling.
Do not touch the heatsinks while installing or removing the board. Hold the
board only by the edges. If a heatsink is loose or broken, obtain a replacement
board.
Caution – When inserting the board into slot 4 or slot 10 of a 16-slot card cage,
lift the board slightly to avoid damage to the centerplane connectors.
Caution – The heatsinks on the board can be damaged by improper packaging.
When storing or shipping the board, ensure that the heatsinks have sufficient
protection.

3.4 Hot-Plug Feature
Enterprise systems have extensive error detection mechanisms, and an
Automatic System Reconfiguration (ASR) feature that enables the system to be
rebooted with failed components (such as CPUs, memory, or I/O) disabled.
When an error is detected, the system can be reconfigured so that the board
containing the failed components is placed in low power mode and is no
longer accessible.
Caution – The peripheral power supply provides the precharge voltages
required for hot-plug. Do not attempt hot-plug of a system component if the
power supply is missing or inoperative. Use prtdiag(1M) to determine the
status of the peripheral power supply.
Caution – If the message: NOTICE: Hot Plug not supported in this
system is displayed during boot, do NOT attempt hot-plug in this system or
damage to the hardware will occur.
The hot-plug feature enables you to insert a new board into a powered on
system, despite the system being “live,” or being supplied with electrical
power. When the hot-plug feature is used to add a board to a powered on
system, the system will not use the new board until the system is rebooted.
3.5 I/O Boards
Enterprise systems support two types of I/O boards: SBus and Graphics. See
Figure 3-4 through Figure 3-7.
The SBus I/O board includes two SYSIO ASICs that provide two SBuses:
•
•
One for two plug-in SBus cards and two fiber interfaces
One for one plug-in SBus card and the on-board devices (10/100Mbyte TPE
and Single-ended Fast/Wide SCSI)
Note – SBus connector slots 1 and 2 on the SBus I/O board can accommodate a
double-wide SBus card.
I/O Boards and Components
3-5
3
The Graphics I/O board includes one SYSIO ASIC that provides a single SBus
for two plug-in SBus cards, two fiber interfaces, and the on-board devices
(10/100Mbyte TPE and Single-ended Fast/Wide SCSI).
3.5.1 tpe-link-test? Variable
If the system cannot communicate with a network, the tpe-link-test?
settings for the on-board Ethernet ports may be incompatible with the setting
at the network hub. The tpe-link-test? variable is set separately for the onboard Ethernet port on each I/O board. The variable is also set for any SBus
Ethernet cards in the system.
If you have problems verifying connection between Sun equipment and your
hub, verify that your hub also has the link test function enabled.
See Section 8.5.3.2, “printenv Command,” for information about displaying
configuration variables and Section 8.6.1, “Failure of Network
Communications,” for additional tpe-link-test? information. Also, refer to
the manual provided with your hub.

3.5.2 Removing a Board
3.5.2.1 Removing a Board from a Powered On System
Caution – Remove a board from a powered on system only after the ASR
software has disabled the board. If a board has not been disabled by the ASR
software, then the operating system should be halted and the system powered
off prior to board removal. See Chapter 12, “Powering Off and On” and then
Section 3.5.2.2, “Removing a Board from a Nonpowered On System.”
1. Ensure that the board has been disabled by the ASR software. See
Section 3.4, “Hot-Plug Feature.”
Once disabled by ASR, one of two results occurs:
• The three LEDs on the board are not lit (board has no power).
• The outer two green LEDs are not lit and the middle yellow LED is lit
(board in low power mode).
Note – System software operates such that the LED pattern described is the
same for a board that is component side down (installed in front of card cage)
or component side up (installed in rear of card cage).
2. Unfasten any cable connectors from the front panel and set them aside.
Label cables to identify them for reconnection later.
3. Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to mechanically release the board from the
system card cage.
Insert the screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot (the slots are located
on the left and right sides of the board‘s front panel) and then turn a quarter
turn so that the arrow points to the unlocked position. See Figure 3-8.

5. If a board is not immediately replaced, a load board (Enterprise 6000
systems only) or a filler panel (Enterprise 4000 and 5000 systems only)
must be installed in its place.
See Section 3.2, “Filler Panels and Load Boards.”
3.5.2.2 Removing a Board from a Nonpowered On System
1. Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to mechanically release the board from the
system card cage.
Insert the screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot (the slots are located
on the left and right sides of the board front panel) and then turn a quarter
turn so that the arrow points to the unlocked position. See Figure 3-8.
2. Unfasten any cable connectors from the front panel and set them aside.
Label cables to identify them for reconnection later.
3. Pull the ends of both extraction levers outward simultaneously to unseat
the board from the centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 3-9 for positioning of extraction levers.
3.5.3 Installing a Board
3.5.3.1 Board Slot Selection
Note – Logically there is no difference between the board slots in the front or
rear of the card cage, and each slot can accept any board type. It is suggested
that CPU/Memory boards be installed in the front slots, and I/O and disk
boards be installed in the rear slots because of cabling. Should the need arise,
however, any of these three board types can be placed in any of the numbered
board slots, with the exception of slot 1. Slot 1 should be used by the first I/O
board because it is the only slot connected to the onboard SCSI devices.
The first CPU/Memory board is placed in slot 0, followed sequentially by all
remaining even numbered slots. If there are boards remaining, they can be
installed sequentially in odd numbered slots, if available, in the system rear
(with the exception of slot 1 as noted above). See Figure 3-10 and Figure 3-11.
3-14
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996

For I/O boards being placed in the rear of the system, ensure that the
component side is up. If the boards are placed in the front of the system,
ensure that the component side is down. See Figure 3-12.

3.5.3.2 Cooling and Power Issues
There should be one power/cooling module (PCM) for every two boards to
adhere to cooling and power requirements. The PCMs must be installed
adjacent to populated board slots to ensure the fan in the PCM can cool the
respective boards.
3-16
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996

Note – All empty board slots in Enterprise 4000 or 5000 systems must have a
filler panel installed to ensure proper cooling. All empty slots in Enterprise
6000 systems must have load boards installed.
3.5.3.3 Powered or Nonpowered On System
1. Carefully insert the board (component side down if in front; component
side up if in the rear) in the proper slot in the card cage, ensuring that the
board does not slip out of the left and right card guides.
See Figure 3-12

2. Ensure that both extraction levers are in the insert position (arrow
pointing outward), and that the quarter-turn access slots are unlocked
(arrow indicates unlocked position) as you slide the board toward the
centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 3-8 and Figure 3-9. The board will not seat fully unless the levers
are in this starting position and the access slots are unlocked.
!
Caution – DO NOT FORCE any board into a slot; this can cause damage to the
board and system. The board should insert and seat smoothly. If it binds,
remove the board and inspect the card cage slot for any obvious obstructions.
Also inspect both the board and the centerplane for bent pins or other damage.
3. Push the board into the card cage, then simultaneously press both
extraction levers to seat the board on the centerplane.
Pushing both levers simultaneously avoids twisting the board and bending
the connector pins, and mates the board centerplane connector to the
matching receptacle on the centerplane. Do not press on board front panel to
seat it—doing so will damage the connector pins.
4. Mechanically lock the board to the system chassis by inserting a Phillips
#1 screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot and then turning to the
locked position.
See Figure 3-8.
5. Replace or connect all necessary cables to the front of the board.
Note – The I/O board in slot 1 controls the internal SCSI tray devices.
Therefore, the external SCSI connector on the I/O board in slot 1 of a system
must be terminated with a SCSI terminator. See Figure 3-3.
6. Terminate the board SCSI connector if required, see above note.
7. Once the board has been installed, a message similar to the following will
be displayed on the monitor (if the system is powered on):
Example depicts screen output when a new I/O board has been hot-plugged
into slot 6 of an operating Enterprise system:
NOTICE: I/O Board Hotplugged into Slot 6
NOTICE: Board 6 is ready to remove
3-18
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
3
This screen output indicates that the board has been detected by the system
and is in the low power mode. Additionally, any subsequent prtdiag(1M)
output would include information for board slot 6. Again, note that the
system will not use the new board until the system is rebooted.
8. Reboot the system now or schedule a later time to reboot when system
disruption will be minimized.
3.5.4 SBus Cards
There are three SBus card locations on the SBus I/O board; the Graphics I/O
board has two. Figure 3-13 shows the SBus card locations for both types of

connector end from the front panel opening on the I/O board.
5. If the fibre card is not immediately replaced, install an OLC plug on the
I/O board front panel opening.
6. Use the procedures in Section 3.5.3, “Installing a Board,” to replace the
I/O board.
3.5.6.2 Installing a Fibre Card
1. Use the procedures in Section 3.5.2, “Removing a Board,” to remove the
applicable I/O board.
Note – If required, remove the OLC plug that protects the fiber optic connector
opening on the front panel of the I/O board. These OLC plugs are installed in
factory shipped systems without fibre cards installed.
2. Locate the card slot for installation.
See Figure 3-23 on page 3-32. You may need to remove the SBus cards over
(or next to) this card to have enough room to hold onto the fibre card being
installed.
Note – There are four plastic inserts located on the bottom of each card, two on
each end of the card. These secure the card once they are inserted into
corresponding openings on the I/O board. See detail in Figure 3-24 on
page 3-33.

5.1 Handling Boards and Assemblies
!
!
Caution – The chassis AC power cord must remain connected to ensure a
proper ground.
Caution – The Disk boards, their modules, and cards have surface-mount
components that can be broken by flexing the boards.
To minimize the amount of board flexing, observe the following precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Hold the board only by the edges near the middle of the board, where the
board stiffener is located. Do not hold the board only at the ends.
When removing the board from an antistatic bag, keep the board vertical
until you lay it on the Sun ESD mat.
Do not place the board on a hard surface. Use a cushioned antistatic mat.
The board connectors and components have very thin pins that bend easily.
Do not use an oscilloscope probe on the components. The soldered pins are
easily damaged or shorted by the probe point.
Transport the board in an antistatic bag.
Be careful of small parts located on the component side of the board.
Be careful not to drag boards across surfaces as board components are easily
damaged.
!
Caution – The heatsinks on the board can be damaged by incorrect handling.
Do not touch the heatsinks while installing or removing the board. Hold the
board only by the edges. If a heatsink is loose or broken, obtain a replacement
board.
!
Caution – The heatsinks on the board can be damaged by improper packaging.
When storing or shipping the board, ensure that the heatsinks have sufficient
protection.
5.2 Filler Panels and Load Boards
All empty board slots in Enterprise systems must have either a filler panel or a
load board installed.
5-2

5.4 Hot-Plug Feature
Enterprise systems have extensive error detection mechanisms, and an
Automatic System Reconfiguration (ASR) feature that enables the system to be
rebooted with failed components (such as CPUs, memory, or I/O) disabled.
When an error is detected, the system can be reconfigured so that the board
containing the failed components is placed in low power mode and is no
longer accessible.
Caution – The peripheral power supply provides the precharge voltages
required for hot-plug. Do not attempt hot-plug of a system component if the
peripheral power supply is missing or inoperative. Use prtdiag(1M)to
determine the status of the peripheral power supply.
Caution – If the message: NOTICE: Hot Plug not supported in this
system is displayed during boot, do NOT attempt hot-plug in this system or
damage to the hardware will occur.
The hot-plug feature enables you to insert a new board into a powered on
system, despite the system being “live,” or being supplied with electrical
power. When the hot-plug feature is used to add a board to a powered on
system, the system will not use the new board until the system is rebooted.
5.5 Disk Boards
A maximum of two Disk boards can be installed in Enterprise 6000 systems;
four Disk boards can be installed in Enterprise 5000/4000 systems.
Note – Disk boards can be installed only in slots 14 and 15 in Enterprise 6000
systems, and slot 15 must be used when installing only one Disk board.
Each Disk board contains a fast and wide single-ended SCSI chain with sockets
for two disks. There are three status and two activity LEDs; each activity LED
is driven directly by a disk drive.

5.5.1 Removing a Board
5.5.1.1 Removing a Board from a Powered On System
!
Caution – Remove a board from a powered on system only after the ASR
software has disabled the board. If a board has not been disabled by the ASR
software, then the operating system should be halted and the system powered
off prior to board removal. See Chapter 12, “Powering Off and On” and then
Section 5.5.1.2, “Removing a Board from a Nonpowered On System.”
1. Ensure that the board has been disabled by the ASR software. See
Section 5.4, “Hot-Plug Feature.”
Once disabled by ASR, one of two results occurs:
• The three LEDs on the board are not lit (board has no power)
• The outer two green LEDs are not lit and the middle yellow LED is lit
(board in low power mode).
Note – System software operates such that the LED pattern described is the
same for a board that is component side down (installed in front of card cage)
or component side up (installed in rear of card cage).
2. Unfasten any cable connectors from the front panel and set them aside.
Label cables to identify them for reconnection later.
3. Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to mechanically release the board from the
system card cage.
Insert the screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot (the slots are located
on the left and right sides of the board‘s front panel) and then turn a quarter
turn so that the arrow points to the unlocked position. See Figure 5-4.

See Section 5.2, “Filler Panels and Load Boards.”
5.5.1.2 Removing a Board from a Nonpowered On System
1. Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to mechanically release the board from the
system card cage.
Insert the screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot (the slots are located
on the left and right sides of the board‘s front panel) and then turn a quarter
turn so that the arrow points to the unlocked position. See Figure 5-4 on
page 5-7.
2. Unfasten any cable connectors from the front panel and set them aside.
Label cables to identify them for reconnection later.
3. Pull the ends of both extraction levers outward simultaneously to unseat
the board from the centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 5-5 on page 5-7.
5.5.2 Installing a Board
5.5.2.1 Board Slot Selection
Note – Logically there is no difference between the board slots in the front or
rear of the card cage, and each slot can accept any board type. It is suggested
that CPU/Memory boards be installed in the front slots, and I/O and Disk
boards be installed in the rear slots because of cabling. Should the need arise,
however, any of these three board types can be placed in any of the numbered
board slots, with these exceptions:
Slot 1: Slot 1 should be used by the first I/O board because it is the only
slot connected to the onboard SCSI devices.
Slots 14 and 15: In Enterprise 6000 systems, Disk boards are supported
only in these two slots.
The first CPU/Memory board is placed in slot 0, followed sequentially by all
remaining even numbered slots. If there are boards remaining, they can be
installed sequentially in odd numbered slots, if available, in the system rear
(with the exception of slot 1 as noted above). See Figure 5-6.
5-8
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
5
Other than the slot 1 exception, a Disk board can be placed in any of the
numbered board slots in Enterprise 5000/4000 systems. Use only slot 14 and
slot 15 in Enterprise 6000 systems, and you must use slot 15 if only one Disk
board is installed.
For boards being placed in the rear of the system, ensure that the component
side is up. If the boards are placed in the front of the system, ensure that the
component side is down. See Figure 5-7.

5.5.2.2 Cooling and Power Issues
There should be one power/cooling module (PCM) for every two boards to
adhere to cooling and power requirements. The PCMs must be installed
adjacent to populated board slots to ensure the fan in the PCM can cool the
respective boards.
Note – All empty board slots in Enterprise 4000 or 5000 systems must have a
filler panel installed to ensure proper cooling. All empty slots in Enterprise
6000 systems must have load boards installed.
5.5.2.3 Powered or Nonpowered On System
1. Carefully insert the board (component side down if in front; component
side up if in the rear) in the proper slot in the card cage, ensuring that the
board does not slip out of the left and right card guides.
See Figure 5-7.

2. Ensure that both extraction levers are in the insert position (arrow
pointing outward) and that the quarter-turn access slots are unlocked
(arrow indicates unlocked position) as you slide the board toward the
centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 5-4 on page 5-7 and Figure 5-5 on page 5-7. The board will not
seat fully unless the levers are in this starting position and both quarter-turn
access slots are unlocked.
!
Caution – DO NOT FORCE any board into a slot; this can cause damage to the
board and system. The board should insert and seat smoothly. If it binds,
remove the board and inspect the card cage slot for any obvious obstructions.
Also inspect both the board and the centerplane for bent pins or other damage.
Disk Boards and Components

3. Push the board into the card cage, then simultaneously press both
extraction levers to seat the board on the centerplane.
Pushing both levers simultaneously avoids twisting the board and bending
the connector pins, and mates the board centerplane connector to the
matching receptacle on the centerplane. Do not press on board front panel to
seat it—doing so will damage the connector pins.
4. Mechanically lock the board to the system chassis by inserting a Phillips
#1 screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot and then turning to the
locked position.
See Figure 5-4 on page 5-7.
5. Replace or connect all necessary cables to the front of the board.
6. Terminate the SCSI out connector if necessary.
The SCSI out connector on Disk boards in a system, which are not daisy
chained to an additional device, must be terminated with a SCSI terminator.
See Figure 5-3 on page 5-4.
Note – The last or only Disk board in a system must have the SCSI out
connector terminated with a fast-wide SCSI terminator, part number 150-2267.
7. Once the board has been installed, a message similar to the following will
be displayed on the monitor (if the system is powered on):
Example depicts screen output when a new Disk board has been hotplugged into slot 6 of an operating Enterprise system:
NOTICE: Disk Board Hotplugged into Slot 6
NOTICE: Board 6 is ready to remove
This screen output indicates that the board has been detected by the system
and is in the low power mode. Additionally, any subsequent prtdiag(1M)
output would include information for board slot 6. Again, note that the
system will not use the new board until the system is rebooted.
8. Reboot the system now or schedule a later time to reboot when system
disruption will be minimized.

5.5.2.4 Cabling Issues for Enterprise 6000 Systems
Slot 15 installation:
• Use an 80-cm SCSI cable to connect the Disk board to the SCSI Host
Adapter (on-board or SBus card).
Slot 14 installation:
• If an I/O board is installed in the front, use an 80-cm SCSI cable to connect
the Disk board to the SCSI Host Adapter.
• If all I/O Boards are installed in the rear, use a 2-meter SCSI cable (sold
separately) to connect the Disk board to the SCSI Host Adapter.
Route the cable down the side of the card cage, through the cable pass in
the cabinet.
5.5.3 Disk Drives
5.5.3.1 Removing a Disk Drive
1. Use the procedures described in, Section 5.5.1, “Removing a Board,” To
remove the applicable Disk board.

6. Place it on the antistatic mat with the component side of the disk drive
controller cards facing up.
7. Unlatch and then open the ejector drive retainer for the drive being
replaced or installed.
See Figure 5-8.
8. Using the drive retainer as a handle, slide the drive in and then seat it to
the board connector receptacle.
Close and latch the ejector drive retainer.
9. SCSI IDs for disk drives on Disk boards are selected on the Disk board.
See Appendix C, “SCSI Devices” to select the SCSI ID for the disk drive.
10. Check that the ejector drive retainers on both disk drives are closed,
latched in place, and do not extend past the edge of the board.
If an ejector drive retainer extends past the edge of the Disk board or is not
fully closed, the disk drive connector is not joined with the Disk board
connector. Do the following:
a. Use the unlatched drive retainer to unseat the drive from the board
connector receptacle and slide it out an inch or two.
b. Check that the connectors are not broken and that nothing blocks the
joining of these two connectors.
If there is a problem, put the disk drive back into its protective
packaging, and contact your service representative.
Note – Save the antistatic shipping bag and other original packing. You will
need these materials when transporting the disk drive.
11. Terminate the SCSI out connector, if necessary.
The SCSI out connector on Disk boards that are not daisy chained to an
additional device must be terminated with a SCSI terminator. See Figure 5-3
on page 5-4.
Note – The last or only disk board in a system must have the SCSI out
connector terminated with a fast-wide SCSI terminator, part number 150-2267.

6.2.1 ConsoleBus
The ConsoleBus provides system boards access to global system control and
status as well as to the keyboard, mouse, and serial ports. In addition, there is
a NVRAM/TOD chip that maintains the date and time and 8 Kbytes worth of
data when the power to the system is shut off.
The state of physical hardware conditions is maintained in registers on the
clock board. Each of these registers has inputs generated from other
subsystems on the clock board, from other boards, or from the power supplies
in the system. Some clock board registers are reserved for controlling various
states of the machine.
The ConsoleBus also provides a serial port interface and a keyboard/mouse
interface. The primary purpose of the serial port interface is to provide POST
messages during power-on. The serial port can be used as a console for
systems without a keyboard and display, and for standard serial peripheral
hook-us such as modems and printers.
6.2.2 Clocks
The clock subsystem generates the clocks for the entire system. The base clock
is synthesized and then divided into various frequencies. The base clocks are
then “fanned-out” and driven to the centerplane by an array of driver chips.
Two processor clocks and one system clock go to each of the board slots on the
centerplane.
6.2.3 Reset logic
The reset logic consists of four subcircuits for controlling the system reset and

6.2.4 Removing a Clock Board
!
!
Caution – The clock board is not hot-pluggable. Do not remove the clock
board until the system has been halted and powered-off.
Caution – To avoid damaging internal circuits, do not disconnect or connect
any cable while power is applied to the system.
Note – If you are replacing the clock board, then the TOD NVRAM from the
old board must be removed and placed on the new board. This is necessary to
match the host ID with the Ethernet ID. Note also that if a system is replaced,
then the TOD NVRAM on the clock board must also be changed.
1. You must halt the operating system before turning off the system power.
See Chapter 12, “Powering Off and On,” for this procedure.
2. Unfasten cable connectors from the board front panel and set them aside.
Label cables to identify them for reconnection later.
3. Loosen the two captive screws securing the board to the system chassis.
4. Pull the ends of both extraction levers outward simultaneously to release
the board from the centerplane receptacles.
See Figure 6-2.

2. Ensure that both extraction levers are in the outward position as you slide
the board toward the backplane connectors.
See Figure 6-2. The board will not seat fully unless the levers are in this
starting position.
!
Caution – DO NOT FORCE any board into a slot; this can cause damage to the
board and system. The board should insert and seat smoothly. If it binds,
remove the board and inspect the card cage slot for any obvious obstructions.
Also inspect both the board and the backplane for bent pins or other damage.
3. Use the extraction levers to seat the board.
Simultaneously swing both levers into the locked position. Do not press on
board front panel to seat it—doing so will damage the connector pins.
4. Secure the board to the chassis using the two captive screws, one on each
side.
5. Connect any applicable interface cables to the front panel of the board.
6. Turn on system power. See Chapter 12, “Powering Off and On," for this

This chapter describes the power supplies and environmental sensing and
reporting in Ultra Enterprise systems. There are differences in the power
distribution depending on the enclosure (16-slot or 8-slot).
There are two types of power supplies: a power/cooling module (PCM) and a
peripheral power supply (PPS).
Both types of power supplies are hot-pluggable. This feature allows you to
physically remove the failed component, despite its being “live,” or being
supplied with electrical power. In addition, a new component may be inserted
into a running system.

6.2 Distribution
In the 16-slot and 8-slot systems there is a single peripheral power supply and
a slot for a PCM for each pair of board slots. There is a single alternating
current (AC) power cord for the whole system. AC is then distributed to each
of the PCMs within the chassis. The software monitors the status of the AC
power source. Current-sharing between power supplies provides redundant
power.
6.3 Peripheral Power Supply
The peripheral power supply in Figure 6-1 provides power to the peripheral
subsystems, the drives, the fans in the AC box, and the fan in the keyswitch
box. The PPS provides auxiliary 5V output to power the remote console. This
power supply incorporates current sharing to operate in redundant and
parallel operations. The peripheral power supply provides three precharge
outputs (3.3V, 5V, and 12V) to enable hot plug-in of system boards, PCMs, or
drives into an active centerplane.
In addition, the peripheral power supply incorporates current sharing on the
5V output for parallel operation with PCMs. Consequently, if a PCM fails, the
PPS provides redundant 5V output through the centerplane to the system
boards.

6.3.1 Troubleshooting a Peripheral Power Supply
A green LED is lit on the power supply when it is operational. When a
peripheral power supply fails, a yellow LED is lit on the power supply.
See Chapter 10, “Flow Diagrams for Troubleshooting,” for more information.
6.3.2 Replacing a Peripheral Power Supply
!
!
Caution – Remove and replace the peripheral power supply in a running
system (and not in the low power mode). In the low power mode, the front
panel and board LEDs are all off while the yellow LEDs are lit on the power
supplies.
Replacing the PPS during low power mode will cause the system to power up.
Caution – Be sure that onboard peripheral devices are not in use.
Note – While the peripheral power supply is removed:
• There is the loss of peripheral power.
• There is the loss of precharge (no hot-pluggable replacements are possible
except for the PPS).
• Onboard peripheral devices are not operational.
1. Mechanically release the power supply from the system chassis by
inserting a Phillips #1 screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot and
then turning to the unlocked position.
See Figure 6-2.

5. Slide the power supply toward the centerplane.
• Ensure that both extraction levers are in the outward position.
• Ensure that the arrows in the quarter-turn access slots point to the
unlocked position.
The power supply will not seat fully unless the levers are in this starting
position. See Figure 6-3 and Figure 6-4.
!
Caution – DO NOT FORCE the power supply into a slot; this can cause
damage to the power supply and system.
The power supply should insert and seat smoothly. If it binds, remove it,
and inspect the slot for any obvious obstructions. Do not damage the
springfingers at the bottom of the power supply.
6. Use the extraction levers to seat the power supply.
Simultaneously swing both levers inward to the locked position. Do not
press on the front panel of the power supply to seat it; doing so will damage
the connector pins.
7. Mechanically lock the power supply to the system chassis by inserting a
Phillips #1 screwdriver into each quarter-turn access slot and then turning
to the locked position.
See Figure 6-2.

6.4 Power/Cooling Module (PCM)
The PCM provides sufficient power to the system for two boards. In addition,
the power supply provides power to two fans that cool the two boards.
Figure 6-5
6-8
PCM
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
6
The PCM incorporates an AC inrush limit circuit and two precharge inputs
(3.3V and 5V) that enable it to be hot-pluggable into a live centerplane. A
current sharing scheme on the 2.0V, 3.3V, and 5V outputs enable the PCM to
operate in a parallel redundant mode. A maximum of eight PCMs are used
together in the redundant current sharing.
The 5V output is parallel in a system with all other PCMs and the 5V output of
a peripheral power supply. The 2.0V and 3.3V outputs are parallel in a system
with all other PCMs.
6.4.1 Power Requirements
In general, if a PCM fails, the system boards will continue to be powered and
cooled by the other power supplies provided redundancy (an additional power
supply) is present. For example, if an Enterprise system needs a minimum of
three power supplies and four are present, then the system has redundancy.
However, fully configured Enterprise systems represent a different situation
and are always hot-pluggable. That is, an Enterprise 5000 or 4000 system with
seven or eight boards and four PCMs is hot-pluggable. (The peripheral power
supply acts as the “extra” power supply.) Similarly, an Enterprise 6000 system
with fifteen or sixteen boards and eight power supplies is also hot-pluggable.
(Only seven PCMs are required to power sixteen active boards; the eighth PCM
is “extra.” However, the eighth PCM is required for cooling purposes.) See
Table 6-3.
Note – The presence of an additional (extra) PCM in the system provides
redundancy and allows hot-plug of PCMs.

1. System needs a fourth PCM for cooling purposes.
2. System needs an eighth PCM for cooling purposes.
Failed power supplies must be replaced as soon as practical. Otherwise, the
Enterprise system will lose its redundancy and result in an outage at the next
PCM failure.
6.4.2 Cooling Requirements
Note – In the Enterprise system, all boards must be adjacent to a PCM. The
fans in the PCM cool the boards. The minimum configuration is one PCM for
every two adjacent boards.
The power supplies incorporate redundant bulk fan power so that the fans
continue to operate in a failed power supply with the redundant fan power
from the peripheral power supply.

6.4.3 Troubleshooting a PCM
A green LED is lit on the power supply when it is operational. When a PCM
fails, a yellow LED is lit on the power supply.
You will see a message similar to the following example on your system
console when a PCM fails:
WARNING: Core Power Supply 2 Failing
WARNING: Redundant power lost
See Chapter 10, “Flow Diagrams for Troubleshooting,” for more information.
6.4.4 Replacing a PCM
!
!
Caution – Remove and replace the PCM in a running system. Do not replace a
PCM while the system is in the low power mode. In the low power mode, the
front panel and board LEDs are all off while the yellow LEDs are lit on the
power supplies.
Replacing a PCM during low power mode will cause the system to power up
immediately and result in a severe overload condition for that PCM (the other
PCMs will remain in the low power mode).
Caution – Replace the PCM within several minutes or risk overheating the
board(s) cooled by the fans in that power supply.
Note – Remember the following rules when attempting the hot-plug
replacement of a PCM:
• The peripheral power supply is providing precharge.
• There is (power) redundancy in the system.
Use the printdiag (1M) command to determine if precharge current is
present.
When replacing a PCM, be sure that the extraction lever is on the outside edge
of the system. See Figure 6-6.

9.2.4 Disk Board LEDs
The board status LED codes correspond to those shown in Table 9-2 for the
CPU/Memory and I/O boards. The Disk board has two additional LEDs on
the opposite side of the board to show the status of the two onboard disk
drives. The LED for disk drive 1 is nearer to the side of the Disk board, and the
LED for disk drive 0 is closer to the center of the board.
9.2.5 Power Supplies
A system has one peripheral power supply and up to four or eight CPU/IO
modular power supplies. All the power supplies have one green LED and one
yellow LED.
The control and status signals of all power supply modules connect to the
clock board. If the clock board LEDs indicate a problem, inspect the LEDs on
the power supplies to locate a faulty module, if any.
9.2.5.1 Peripheral Power Supply
The green LED is to the right of the yellow LED on the peripheral power
supply. The green LED indicates that the peripheral power supply is operating,
but does not necessarily indicate that the DC outputs are within specification.
When the peripheral power supply module yellow LED is lit, a DC power
output has malfunctioned or the voltage level is out of specification.
The peripheral power supply produces +5 VDC and +12 VDC current. The
current is available for peripherals such as a tape drive and/or CD-ROM drive.
In addition, the +5 VDC output of the peripheral power supply is available at
the center plane for current sharing with the +5 VDC outputs of the power
supply modules.
9.2.5.2 Power/Cooling Modules (PCMs)
For a PCM at the front of the card cage, the green LED is to the left of the
yellow LED. At the back of the card cage, the LED positions are reversed and
the green LED is to the right of the yellow LED. See Table 9-3.
Troubleshooting Overview
9-5
9
When the yellow LED is lit, a fan or a DC output has malfunctioned. Each
modular power supply contains two fans and three DC supplies (+3.3 VDC, +5
VDC, and +2 VDC).
The green LED indicates that the DC supplies are operating, but does not
guarantee that the DC outputs are within specification.

9.3 Basic Definitions for the Card Cage
When locating a board slot in the 8-slot and 16-slot card cages, remember:
Slot numbers
Even-numbered slots are at the front of the card cage. Oddnumbered slots are at the back.
In the front of the card cage, even-numbered slots begin with slot
0 at the top. At the rear of the card cage, odd-numbered slots
begin with slot 1 at the top.
Install the boards with component side down in the front slots and
with component side up in the rear slots.
For specific slot numbers, see Appendix B, “Functional
Description.”
Slot functions
All card cage slots are equivalent. However, for convenience in
installing I/O cables, it is suggested that you install
CPU/Memory boards at the front of the cage and install I/O
boards at the back of the cage. When all slots are filled on one
side of the cage, you can use the other side.
Slot 1 should contain an I/O board connected to the boot disk.
(This is not a requirement.)
Slot 0 should contain a CPU/master board with at least one CPU.
The POST diagnostics display more messages if slot 0 contains a
CPU/Memory board and a CPU. For an explanation, see the next
item, “Master board.”
Master board
There is no master board during normal system operations. The
first CPU/Memory board (in slot 0) functions temporarily as a
master board during some POST tests.
9.4 Diagnosing Problems
When board LED codes indicate a hardware problem, several types of software
programs are available to supply information about the problem.

9.4.2 SunVTS
The latest version of SunVTS™ (on-line validation test suite) has several modes
of testing, including low-impact testing, which can run with minimum affect
on customer applications.
The SunVTS can also be used to stress-test Sun hardware, either in or out of the
Solaris operating environment. By running multiple and multithreaded
diagnostic hardware tests, the SunVTS software verifies the system
configuration and functionality of most hardware controllers and devices.
SunVTS tests many board and system functions, as well as interfaces for Fibre
Channel, SCSI, and SBus interfaces. SunVTS accepts user-written scripts for
automated testing.
Refer to the SunVTS User’s Guide for starting and operating instructions.
9.4.3 prtdiag(1M)
You can use the prtdiag command to display:
•
System configuration, including information about clock frequencies, CPUs,
memory, and I/O card types.
•
•
Diagnostic information
Failed field replaceable units (FRUs)
Refer to the prtdiag man page for instructions.
9.4.3.1 History Log Option
To isolate an intermittent failure, it may be helpful to maintain a prtdiag
history log. Use prtdiag with the -l (log) option to send output to a log file
in /var/adm.
9.4.3.2 Running prtdiag
To run prtdiag, type:
% /usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag

9.4.4 POST and OpenBoot
POST and OpenBoot work together in the system to test and manage system
hardware.
POST resides in the OpenBoot PROM on each CPU/Memory board, I/O board,
and Disk board. When the system is turned on, or if a system reset is issued,
POST detects and tests buses, power supplies, boards, CPUs, SIMMs, and
many board functions. POST controls the status LEDs on the system front
panel and all boards. POST displays diagnostic and error messages on a
console terminal, if available.
Only POST can configure the system hardware, and only POST can enable hotpluggable boards. If a new unit (board or modular power supply) is added to
the card cage after the system has booted, the new unit will not work until the
system is rebooted, at which time POST reconfigures the system, using the
units that are found in the system at that time.
OpenBoot provides basic environmental monitoring, including detection of
overheating conditions and out-of-tolerance voltages. For example, if an
overheated board is found, OpenBoot issues a warning message. If the
temperature passes the danger level, POST will put the overheated board(s) in
low power mode.
OpenBoot also provides a set of commands and diagnostics at the ok prompt.
For example, you can use OpenBoot to set NVRAM variables that reserve a
board or a set of SIMMs for hot-sparing.
The following OpenBoot commands may be useful for diagnosing problems:
9.4.4.1 show-devs Command
Use the show-devs command to list the devices that are included in the
system configuration.
9.4.4.2 printenv Command
Use the printenv command to display the system configuration variables
stored in the system NVRAM. The display includes the current values for these
variables, as well as the default values.

If the system cannot communicate with a 10BASE-T network, the Ethernet link
test setting for the port may be incompatible with the setting at the network
hub. See Section 9.5.1, “Failure of Network Communications,” for further
details.
9.4.4.3 probe-scsi Command
The probe-scsi command locates and tests SCSI devices attached to the
system. probe-scsi is run from the OpenBoot prompt.
When it is not practical to halt the system, you can use SunVTS as an alternate
method of testing the SCSI interfaces.

The Solstice™ SyMON™ program monitors system functioning and features a
graphical user interface (GUI) to continuously display system status. Solstice
SyMON is intended to complement system management tools such as SunVTS.
Solstice SyMON is accessible through an SNMP interface from network tools
such as Solstice™ SunNet Manager™.

9.5 Specific Problems and Solutions
9.5.1 Failure of Network Communications
Description of the Problem
The system cannot communicate with a network if the system and the network
hub are not set in the same way for the Ethernet Link Integrity Test. This
problem particularly applies to 10BASE-T network hubs, where the Ethernet
Link Integrity Test is optional. This is not a problem for 100BASE-T networks,
where the test is enabled by default.
If you connect the system to a network and the network does not respond, use
the OpenBoot command watch-net-all to display conditions for all network
connections:
ok watch-net-all
For SBus Ethernet cards, the test can be enabled or disabled with a hardware
jumper, which you must set manually. For the TPE and MII onboard ports on
the I/O board, the link test is enabled or disabled through software, as shown
below.
Remember also that the TPE and MII ports are not independent circuits and as
a result, both ports cannot be used at the same time.
Note – Some hub designs do not use a software command to enable/disable
the test, but instead permanently enable (or disable) the test through a
hardware jumper. Refer to the hub installation or user manual for details of
how the test is implemented.
Determining the Device Names of the I/O Boards
To enable or disable the link test for an on-board TPE (hme) port, you must first
know the device name for the I/O board. To list the device names:
1. Shut down the system and take the system into OpenBoot.
2. Determine the device names of the I/O boards:
Troubleshooting Overview
9-11

a. Type:
ok show-devs
b. In the show-devs listing, find the node names.
Node names take the general form /sbus@3,0/SUNW,hme@3,8c00000.
Solution 1
Use this method while the operating system is running:
1. Become superuser.
2. Type:
# eeprom nvramrc=”probe-all install-console banner apply disable-link-pulse device-name “
(Repeat for any additional device names.)
# eeprom “use-nvramrc?”=true
3. Reboot the system (when convenient) to make the changes effective.
Solution 2
Use this alternate method when the system is already in OpenBoot:
1. At the monitor OpenBoot prompt, type:
ok nvedit
0: probe-all install-console banner
1: apply disable-link-pulse device-name
(Repeat this step for other device names as needed.)
(Press CONTROL-C to exit nvedit.)
ok nvstore
ok setenv use-nvramrc? true
2. Reboot to make the changes effective.

9.5.2 Resetting and Power Cycling the System
from a Remote Console
It is possible to reset the system or cycle power from the remote console under
these conditions:
•
•
The console must be connected to port A on the clock board.
•
•
Security features permit the use of the remote console.
The key switch must be in either the On or Diagnostic setting. If the key
switch is in the Secure or Off position, the remote key sequences and button
resets are ignored.
You must use a slow typing speed, not less than 0.5 seconds and not more
than 5 seconds between characters.

B.1 System Overview
The 16-slot and 8-slot Enterprise 6000 and 5000 cabinet servers, and the 8-slot
Enterprise 4000 standalone server, all use variations of the same general card
cage design. All systems feature shared-memory multiprocessors and use the
same boards, power/cooling modules (PCMs), and operating software.
B.1.1 Board Types
All systems use the same board types, with the exception of load boards and
filler panels.
1. The CPU/Memory board supports up to two UltraSPARC modules and 16
SIMM slots.
2. The SBus I/O board includes two separate SBuses, each controlled by a
separate ASIC. The board provides a total of three SBus slots for plug-in
cards, two slots for fiber interface modules. The remaining slots are used for
onboard devices.
3. The Graphics I/O board provides an SBus with two SBus slots and several
onboard devices. This board also has a specialized slot for devices such as
the graphics (UPA) card, a high performance frame buffer.
4. In the Enterprise 6000 system, empty board slots require load boards (part
number 501-3142) to reduce the possibility of RFI generation. The Enterprise
5000 and 4000 systems use filler panels (part number 540-2592).
B-1
B
Enterprise card cages feature a high-speed (2.6 Gbyte per second) centerplane
bus. Boards at the front of the centerplane must be installed component side
down, while boards at the back must be installed component side up. The
boards are oriented this way to allow for minimum signal trace lengths and
optimum system performance.
Figure B-1 illustrates the logical organization of Enterprise systems.

There are few differences between board slots and each slot can accept any
board type. However, slot 1 connects directly to the internal SCSI tray through
the centerplane and related cables. The internal tape and/or CD-ROM or other
optional internal SCSI drives cannot be used unless an I/O board is present in
slot 1.
Although the remaining slots are equivalent, I/O boards should be located on
the back side of the centerplane for easy access to interface cables at the rear of
the cabinet.
B.2 System Packaging
This section describes the features of the system enclosures.
B.2.1 Enterprise 6000 Server
The Enterprise 6000 server features a 16-slot card cage in a 56-inch data center
system cabinet. See Figure B-2.

The front of the cabinet contains the CD-ROM/tape tray, the keyswitch, the
even-numbered board slots, and the even-numbered power/cooling module
(PCM) slots.
The rear of the cabinet contains the AC power switch, the peripheral power
supply, the clock board, the odd-numbered board slots, and the odd-numbered
PCM slots.
For slot numbers in the 16-slot card cage, see Figure 3-6.
Air circulation is provided by the power/cooling modules. The PCMs (PCM 0
through PCM 7) have two fans each. The fans provide cooling for the PCM,
plus two adjacent board slots.
All empty board slots must be blocked by load boards for proper airflow,
cooling, and EMI protection. Other types of empty slots must be blocked by
filler panels.
B.2.2 Enterprise 5000 Server
The Enterprise 5000 server is similar to the Enterprise 6000 system but features
a shorter, 8-slot, card cage. See Figure B-2 on page B-3.
For slot numbers in the 8-slot card cage, see Figure B-3.
Functionally, the 16-slot and 8-slot cabinet servers are the same, with the only
difference being the board capacity and amount of internal space available
below the card cage. All boards are interchangeable between the two versions.
All empty slots must be blocked by filler panels for proper airflow, cooling,
and EMI protection.
Note – The load board that is required for the 16-slot Enterprise 6000 server is
not required for the Enterprise 5000.

The Enterprise 4000 server uses the 8-slot card cage that is used for the
Enterprise 5000, but the card cage is in a standalone cabinet. See Figure B-4.
Also note that several areas of the card cage that are covered by filler panels in
the cabinet version are used in the standalone version. These areas include the
SCSI CD-ROM/tape tray, keyswitch, and AC switch. See Figure B-4.
The power/cooling modules (PCM 0 through PCM 3) each have two fans. The
fans provide cooling for the PCM and the two adjacent board slots.

The Enterprise software includes two diagnostic packages, Solstice SyMON
and SunVTS. Refer to the online manuals for operating instructions.
B.4 Board Hot-Plug Procedures
The CPU/Memory board and the I/O board are hot-pluggable under certain
conditions. If the operating system detects a hardware failure in the board, the
system powers down the corresponding board slot and turns off the left green
status LED on the board. (See Table 9-2 for LED codes.)
When the left green LED is off, it is safe to remove the board even though the
system continues running.

Figure B-5
CPU/Memory Board
The CPU/Memory board should be installed from the smallest even-numbered
slot (0) to the largest even-numbered slot (14). The even-numbered slots are
located at the front of the cabinet. When located in these slots, the component
side of the board is down. If the front slots are filled, you can use slots at the
rear of the cabinet, with the exception of slot 1. Slot 1 requires an I/O board
because the slot connects to the SCSI tray in the front of the cabinet.
All empty slots must have a filler panel or load board installed.
Note – The 16-slot Enterprise 6000 card cage requires load boards to reduce the
potential for RFI generation. The 8-slot Enterprise 5000 and 4000 card cages use
filler panels, which do not have load circuits.
Functional Description

B
B.5.1 CPU Modules
Each CPU/Memory board has two sets of CPU connectors, marked “PROC 0”
and “PROC 1”.
B.5.2 System Master Board
A system master board is temporarily selected for some POST tests, primarily
to test I/O boards. The system master is normally the lowest-numbered slot
containing a board with a functional CPU. There is no system master during
normal system operation.
B.5.3 SIMMs
B.5.3.1 Slot Locations
The CPU/Memory board has 16 slots for SIMMs. SIMMs must be installed in
full banks of 8. Figure B-6 shows the slots by bank and connector number.

Graphics I/O Board
Note – Slot 1 requires an SBus I/O board or Graphics I/O board because slot 1
connects with the internal SCSI tray. If slot 1 does not contain an I/O board,
the drives in the SCSI tray will not function.
For easy access to I/O cables, I/O boards should be installed in the rear of the
cabinet, with CPU/Memory boards in the front of the cabinet. I/O boards
should be installed from the smallest odd-numbered slot (1) to the largest oddnumbered slot (7 or 15). The odd-numbered slots are located at the rear of the
cabinet. When located in these slots, the board is oriented so that the
component side is up.
If the rear slots are filled, you can use slots at the front of the cabinet. When
located in a front slot, the board is oriented so that the component side is
down.
Functional Description
B-11
B
Note – All empty card cage slots must contain a load board (Enterprise 6000
server) or filler panel (Enterprise 5000 or 4000 servers).
B.7 Network Interfaces
Each SBus I/O board and Graphics I/O board has onboard connectors for
10BASE-T or 100BASE-T Ethernet. The two sockets (RJ-45 and 40-pin MII)
connect to the same interface circuit, so that only one socket is active at any
time.
Additional network interfaces can be added in the form of SBus cards. The
SBus I/O board will support up to three SBus interface cards. The Graphics
I/O board will support up to two SBus interface cards.
B.8 Disk Board
The Disk board (with two SCSI disks) is an available option for the Enterprise
systems. The Enterprise 6000 system supports two Disk boards (only in slots 14
and 15); the Enterprise 5000 and 4000 systems support four Disk boards.
The ID settings of the two disks on the Disk board vary according to the card
cage slot location. See Appendix C, “SCSI Devices.”
B.9 Power Supplies
There are two types of power supplies in the Enterprise 6000, 5000, and 4000
systems. The power/cooling modules (PCMs) provide DC current and cooling
air to boards in the card cage.
The peripheral power supply provides current for peripheral devices (such as a
tape or CD-ROM drive) in the SCSI tray.
B.9.1 Power/Cooling Modules (PCMs)
The DC power to the centerplane is supplied by one or more PCMs. Each PCM
also provides cooling air for two board slots. If a slot contains a board, the
adjacent PCM slot must contain a PCM to supply cooling air.
Current from individual PCMs is shared on the centerplane.
B-12
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
B
With automatic system reconfiguration (ASR), a PCM can be taken offline and
replaced without halting the system. There are two restrictions:
1. The remaining power/cooling modules must provide sufficient electrical
power. As a general rule, the number of boards must be less than half the
number of PCMs.
2. The PCM should be replaced quickly so that any adjacent boards will not
overheat from lack of fan cooling.
B.9.2 Peripheral Power Supply
A system has one peripheral power supply. This power supply provides DC
power for the CD-ROM/tape tray and precharge power for hot-plugging
boards and power/cooling modules. The +5 VDC output of the peripheral
power supply is current shared with the +5 VDC outputs of the power/cooling
modules.
Figure B-9

B
B.10 Clock Board
The clock board is located at the rear of the system, directly below the
peripheral power supply. When replacing the clock board, orient the board
with the component side up. See Figure B-10.
The clock board provides 16 pairs of system clocks, 32 pairs of processor
clocks.
All processors run at the same clock speed. The system clock and the processor
clocks are derived from a single clock source. The frequency of the clock source
as well as the processor and system clocks are programmable and set by
firmware. The processor clock frequency is set to match the lowest-frequency
processor in the system.
The clock board also includes central devices including serial ports, keyboard
and mouse, and a time of day (TOD) chip.

The 8-slot Enterprise 4000 standalone server does not have a capacity for
internal trays.
B.12 CD-ROM/Tape Tray
All Enterprise servers include a tray for one CD-ROM drive and one tape
drive. The drives connect to the wide SCSI connector of the first I/O board (in
card cage slot 1).
Enterprise 6000/5000
Cabinet servers:
The tray is located in the front upper left part of the rack,
and the drives are mounted vertically.
Up to four additional SCSI drives may be mounted in the
area to the right of the CD-ROM/tape tray.

B.2 Disk Board Target IDs
Note – Default disk drive ID numbers are chosen so that IDs 4, 5, 6, and 7 are
unlikely to be assigned to disk drives. These IDs are in slots 0 and 1, which are
normally taken by a CPU/Memory board (slot 0) and an I/O board (slot 1).
The default SCSI ID numbers for disk drives located on the disk boards are
based on the board slot number as depicted in Table B-2. You can override the
default IDs by jumpers on each disk board. Each disk has an ID_ENABLE
jumper and four ID jumpers. If the ID_ENABLE jumper is not installed, the
disk drive uses the default SCSI ID. If the ID_ENABLE jumper is installed, the
disk drive uses the ID specified by the four ID jumpers located on the disk
board (an installed jumper indicates a logical 1).

The I/O board in slot 1 of any Enterprise server must be terminated. This slot
connects to the SCSI tray through cables and a connector on the centerplane.
An I/O board in any other slot does not require termination if no devices
connect to the SCSI bus on that board.
B-2
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
Rules for System Configuration
C
Some of the following rules are suggestions for optimizing your system. Other
rules are strictly required and are marked with the notation: (Requirement) or
(Maximum).
C.1 Card Cage
As a general rule, all board slots in the card cage are interchangeable.
However, the requirements and limitations in the following sections apply
when you install boards.
C.1.1 CPU/Memory Boards
1. Install CPU/Memory boards at the front of the system, starting with the top
slot (slot 0). If you reserve the rear slots for I/O boards, I/O cable
attachments will be made easier.
2. After the front slots are filled, you may add CPU/Memory boards at the
rear of the system, below the I/O boards.
C.1.2 I/O Boards
1. An I/O board must always be in slot 1. This is the only slot that allows
access internally to the internal SCSI devices (tape and CD-ROM drives.)
(Requirement)
C-1
C
2. Install I/O boards at the rear of the system to facilitate I/O cable
attachments.
3. If you require additional slots, you may use those at the front of the card
cage, preferably below the CPU/Memory boards.
4. Up to four graphics (UPA) cards are supported in a system. (Maximum)
5. The I/O board in slot 1 of any Enterprise server must be terminated because
it connects to the SCSI tray. (Requirement)
6. An I/O board in a slot other than slot 1 does not require termination if no
devices connect to the SCSI bus on that board.
C.1.3 Disk Board
1. The 16-slot Enterprise 6000 system supports up to two Disk boards.
(Maximum)
a. Disk boards are supported only in slots 14 and 15.
b. Slot 15 must be used when installing only one Disk board.
2. The 8-slot Enterprise 5000 and 4000 systems support up to four disk boards.
(Maximum)
3. The disk board has a capacity of two disk drives. In addition to the three
status LEDs found on other types of boards, the disk board has two LEDs to
show the status of the individual disk drives. LEDs 1 and 2 represent drives
0 and 1, respectively.
C.1.4 Power Supplies and Fan Cooling
1. The fans in the power/cooling modules (PCMs) provide cooling air only for
the two adjacent board slots. Do not install a board in a slot that is not
cooled by a PCM. (Requirement)
2. You must fill all empty slots (board slots and power supply slots) to avoid
loss of cooling air to the active boards. (Requirement) For further
information on this subject, see Section C.1.5, “Filler Panels and Load
Boards.”
C-2
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
C
3. Under some circumstances, you may remove a power/cooling module from
an active system for a short time. However, if the boards in the adjacent
slots create large quantities of heat, it is safer to halt and power off the
system first.
C.1.5 Filler Panels and Load Boards
1. All empty board slots must be filled with filler panels or load boards. For
Enterprise 6000 systems, use load boards. (Requirement) A load board (part
number 501-3142) is identified by the presence of connector sockets and
passive circuitry, which reduces electrical noise at the center plane. Do not
substitute filler panels, which do not have load circuits.
2. For Enterprise 5000 and 4000 systems, use filler panels (part number 5402592). (Requirement)
3. Filler panels are required for all unused PCM bays. (Requirement)
C.2 SBus Modules
1. Install double-wide SBus cards only on the SBus I/O board, at SBus slots 1
and 2. The location of SBus slot 0 prevents its use with double-wide cards.
2. Double-wide SBus cards cannot be used with the Graphics I/O board. The
middle card connector does not fit SBus cards.
C.3 CPU Modules
1. Each CPU/Memory board has two sets of CPU connectors, marked “PROC
0” and “PROC 1”.
2. Do not mix CPU speeds—all CPUs run at the lowest common frequency.
3. To run 250 MHz CPU modules, the following are requirements:
a. The system must have clock board part number 501-4286.
b. The system must not have 250 MHz CPU modules with CPU modules
of a different speed.
Rules for System Configuration
C-3
C
4. The order of filling CPU slots is not critical. However, to optimize heat
dissipation in the system:
• Fill all “PROC 0” locations on all CPU/Memory boards before filling any
“PROC 1” locations. To receive the maximum quantity of diagnostic
information, fill “PROC 0” on board 0.
• After all “PROC 0” locations are filled, you can begin filling the “PROC 1”
locations, again starting from the lowest slot number to the highest.
Table C-1 shows slot locations for an example of five CPUs on three
CPU/Memory boards.

—
C.4 Memory Modules
1. The SIMMs are 168-pin, JEDEC-standard devices. Do not use other types of
memory modules.
2. All SIMMs in a bank (eight SIMMs) must have the same capacity. Do not
mix 8, 32, or 128 Mbyte SIMMs in the same bank. (Requirement)
3. All SIMMs in a bank should have the same speed rating. If SIMMs of
different speeds are mixed in a bank, the bank will function, but at the
lowest speed.
C.5 Power Supplies
Only the peripheral power supply provides precharge current to the system.
The peripheral power supply must be fully functional if you replace a hotpluggable board or PCM. If the peripheral power supply cannot supply
precharge current, the hot-pluggable unit will be damaged. (Requirement)
C-4
Ultra Enterprise 6000/5000/4000 Systems Manual—November 1996
C
C.6 Disk Drive Trays
1. The disk drive tray containing the boot disk should be connected to the I/O
board in card cage slot 1.
2. Additional drive trays may be attached to I/O boards in any other card cage
slot.
3. In the Enterprise 6000 and 5000 systems, optional disk trays may be
mounted under the card cage. The maximum number of trays varies with
the server type and the physical size of the trays.
C.7 CD-ROM/Tape Drive Tray
1. For the 8-slot Enterprise 4000 system, the optional CD-ROM and tape drives
are mounted horizontally in a SCSI tray that is attached to the card cage.
2. For the 16-slot Enterprise 6000 and 8-slot Enterprise 5000 cabinets, the
optional CD-ROM and tape drives are mounted vertically in a SCSI tray that
is attached to the rack. Note that the 8-slot card cage is the same unit as is
used in the 8-slot standalone unit, but with filler panels in the unused card
cage SCSI tray and keyswitch compartments.
3. The Enterprise 6000 and 5000 systems have space above the card cage for an
optional multi-tape backup tray or tape library unit.
C.8 Connecting Cables
C.8.1 SCSI
1. The maximum length for a chain of non-differential SCSI cables is 6.0 meters
(20 feet). (Maximum)
2. The maximum length for a chain of differential SCSI cables is 25 meters (82
feet). (Maximum)
C.8.2 Ethernet
1. The main Ethernet should be connected to the I/O board in slot 1.
Rules for System Configuration
C-5
C
2. Additional Ethernet connections may be made to I/O boards in any other
card cage slot.
C.8.3 Video Interface
1. A system that is operated with a monitor may use a graphics adapter
mounted on either a Graphics I/O board or an SBus I/O board. The Sun
Creator and Creator 3D Graphics I/O boards are available.
2. Up to four Graphics I/O boards are supported in a system.
