(EM64T), SeSE Linux® Enterprise Server 9.0
Cool computing Environment
With its advanced heat-dissipation design, the RS160-E2/CS3 successfully
resolved the critical thermal problem, which has made two processors in the
limited space of a 1U server chassis seemed impossible in the past. The RS160E2/CS3 adopted an thermal design that included four 56mm x 28mm fans,
four 28mm x 28mm fans and two copper heat sinks for optimal ventilation to
ensure cool and stable operation.
Advanced Replacement Service
Advanced Replacement Service (ARS) offers direct delivery of components
to value added resellers (VAR) and system integrators (SI), who assembled
server systems based on barebone systems and motherboards manufactured
by ASUS. The mission of ARS is to provide peace of mind to our customers
that are building high-performance and complex servers by offering technical
support they can count on. Compared to conventional RMA (return material
authorization) services that require customers to first return defective parts
to distributors and involve a long list of complicated procedures, ARS
significantly saves customers’ precious time and eliminates the potential
financial damage from delayed maintenance.

DIMMs into the DIMM sockets.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum
compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor. Refer to the DDR2 Qualified Vendors List on
the ASUS website for details.
•
Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than
16 GB system memory when you install eight 2 GB DDR2 memory
modules.
•
Three DDR2 DIMMs intalled into any three memory sockets will
function in single-channel mode.
•
If installing only one pair of DIMMs, install them in sockets DIMM_B4
and DIMM_A4.

IDE connectors (40-1 pin PRI_IDE, SEC_IDE)
These connectors are for Ultra DMA 100/66/33 signal cables. The Ultra
DMA 100/66/33 signal cable has three connectors: a blue connector for
the primary IDE connector on the motherboard, a gray connector for an
Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE master device (hard disk drive), and a black
connector for an Ultra DMA 100/66/33 IDE slave device (optical drive/
hard disk drive). If you install two hard disk drives, you must configure
the second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper accordingly.
Refer to the hard disk documentation for the jumper settings.
•
Pin 20 on the IDE connectors are removed to match the covered
hole on the Ultra DMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect
insertion when you connect the IDE cable.
•
Use the 80-conductor IDE cable for Ultra DMA 100/66/33 IDE devices.

SCSI Connection Notes
This motherboard has two 68-Pin Ultra320 SCSI connectors; one for
each of the two channels.
The onboard SCSI chipset incorporates an advanced multimode I/O cell
that supports both single-ended (SE), Ultra2, Ultra160, and Ultra320
devices. With Ultra320 devices, the SCSI bus platform performs at full
Ultra320 speeds (up to 320MB/s) and extended cabling 12m (or 25m
in a point-to-point configuration). When an SE device is attached, the
bus defaults to an SE speed and 1.5m cable length.
Connect SCSI devices as shown. Each channel should have only one
type of SCSI standard (e.g. Ultra320, Ultra160, Ultra2, Ultra-Wide).
Mixing SCSI devices on the same channel decreases performance of
the slower device.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can
update using the provided utility described in section “5.1 Managing and
updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard,
reconfiguring your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section
explains how to configure your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change
the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can
enable the security password feature or change the power management
settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS
Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and
record them in the CMOS RAM of the firmware hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you
start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to
run this program. Press <Del> during the Power-On-Self-Test (POST) to
enter the Setup utility; otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis.
You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this
last option only if the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being
a menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus
and make your selections from the available options using the navigation
keys.

Chapter 5: BIOS setup
This chapter provides instructions
for creating and configuring RAID,
and installing the necessary drivers
for different system components.
Driver installation
Chapter 6
6.1
RAID configurations
The motherboard comes with the following RAID solutions:
• A d a p t e c® HostRAID™ technology and
• A d a p t e c® AIC-7901X SCSI RAID controller supports SCSI hard disk
drives and RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 configurations.
Refer to the RAID definitions below.
6.1.1
RAID definitions
R A I D 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and
write data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same
work as a single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of
a single disk alone, thus improving data access and storage. Use of two
new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from
one drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management
software directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a
complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides
data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two
new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new
drive must be of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
R A I D 0 + 1 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity
(redundancy data) having to be calculated and written. With the RAID 0+1
configuration you get all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1
configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive and
three new drives for this setup.
R A I D 1 0 is data stripe configuration with RAID 1 segments whose
segments are RAID 1arrays. This configuration has the same fault tolerance
as RAID1, and has the same overhead for fault-tolerance as mirroring alone.
RAID 10 achieves high input/output rates by striping RAID 1 segments. In
some instances, a RAID 10 configuration can sustain multiple simultaneous
drive failure. A minimum of four hard disk drives is required for this setup.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in
a created RAID set, copy first the RAID driver from the support
CD to a floppy disk before you install an operating system to the
selected hard disk drive. Refer to section “RAID driver
installation” for details.
