recoverable memory ECC errors before they can cause server outages.
If the recoverable ECC error rate exceeds the system-defined threshold, the
Memory ProteXion feature replaces the failing bit positions, maintaining reliable
operation. If the recoverable ECC error rate exceeds the threshold, LEDs on the
Light Path Diagnostics feature are lit to indicate the failing DIMM.
You do not have to enable memory mirroring to use memory scrubbing and the
Memory ProteXion feature.
Memory mirroring
Memory mirroring stores data in memory port 1 and memory port 2 simultaneously.
To support memory mirroring, you must install identical dual inline memory modules
(DIMMs) in memory port 1 and memory port 2. For more information, see the
section about installing memory modules in the Option Installation Guide on the IBM
xSeries Documentation CD.
To enable memory mirroring through the Configuration/Setup Utility program, select
Advanced Setup from the main menu, and select Memory Configuration. For
more information about using the Configuration/Setup Utility program, see

Turning on the server
Approximately 20 seconds after the server is connected to ac power, the
power-control button becomes active, and you can turn on the server and start the
operating system by pressing the power-control button. The server can also be
turned on in any of the following ways:
v If a power failure occurs while the server is turned on, the server will restart
automatically when power is restored.
v If ac power is present, the server can be turned on from the Remote Supervisor
Adapter user interface.
v The Wake on LAN feature can turn on the server.
Notes:
1. The power supplies are hot-swappable and redundant only at 200-240 V ac.
2. Both power supplies must be connected to the power source for operation at
100-127 V ac.
3. During normal operation, both power supplies must be installed for proper
operation.
4. While the server is powering up, the power-on LED on the front of the server is
lit. When the server is connected to ac power but is not turned on, the power-on
LED on the front of the server flashes.
Turning off the server
When you turn off the server and leave it connected to ac power, the server can
respond to requests from the service processor, such as a remote request to turn
on the server. To remove all power from the server, you must disconnect it from the
power source.
Some operating systems require an orderly shutdown before you turn off the server.

continue with “Using the ASM interconnect network”. If you do not want to set up an
ASM interconnect network, Remote Supervisor Adapter configuration is now
complete. To start managing the server remotely, see the Remote Supervisor
Adapter User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Using the ASM interconnect network
This section explains how to configure and connect the server to function within an
ASM interconnect network.
The ASM interconnect network can include as many as 12 individual ASM
connections in a single bus. These connections can include Remote Supervisor
Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters. When the clients and servers
are connected, they use the ASM interconnect network to share ASM resources,
information, and alerts among multiple servers, without having to add additional
communications hardware or network interface adapters.
An ASM interconnect network provides two levels of functionality. First, the ASM
interconnect network enables you to configure settings and to control the servers
where other Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters
on the network reside. Second, the ASM interconnect network enables other
interconnect network devices to use the resources (Ethernet or modem) of other
Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters in the ASM
interconnect network for sending alerts. This interconnect network is used when
Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, or ASM PCI Adapters cannot send
an alert and must forward the information to another one of these devices to send
the alert.
Planning and cabling the interconnect network
To support the most recent ASM features, a Remote Supervisor Adapter must be
the main gateway interconnect to the ASM interconnect bus if the bus also includes
servers with ASM PCI adapters or ASM processors. The Remote Supervisor
Adapter forwards the ASM information generated by the servers attached to the
ASM interconnect bus to other servers on the Ethernet network. The connected
ASM processors and ASM PCI Adapters are managed through the new user
interface and Web browser access of the Remote Supervisor Adapter.
Note: To ensure the stability of the system, you must have the most current level of
firmware installed on the Remote Supervisor Adapter that is the main
interconnect gateway for the ASM interconnect network. The most current
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
25
level of firmware is available on the World Wide Web at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support. For more information on updating firmware,
see the Remote Supervisor Adapter User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD.
You must connect an ASM Interconnect module to the Remote Supervisor Adapter
and to each xSeries 450 server that you connect to the ASM interconnect network
bus.
Attention: To avoid damage to the Ethernet connector on the Remote Supervisor
Adapter, do not plug the ASM Interconnect module into the Remote Supervisor
Adapter Ethernet port.
To connect the servers, note the following setup and configuration considerations:
v Ensure that the ASM interconnect network is set up as a bus topology. You must
connect the servers to the ASM interconnect network in a series, with terminated
beginning and end points.
v Ensure that the total combined length of all Ethernet cables connecting the
server in the ASM interconnect network does not exceed 91 M (300 ft).
v Each Remote Supervisor Adapter, ASM PCI adapter, or ASM processor that is
connected to the ASM interconnect network bus counts as one connection. For
example, if an ASM PCI adapter is installed in a server that has an ASM
processor, the processor and the adapter connect to each other using one ASM
interconnect connection, but the processor and the adapter count as two
connections on the ASM interconnect network bus.
Forwarding alerts
Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM PCI adapters, and ASM processors that are
connected to an ASM interconnect network share resources and
system-management information. This section provides information on how alerts
are forwarded in the ASM interconnect network.
During normal operation, each Remote Supervisor Adapter, ASM processor, or ASM
PCI adapter on the ASM interconnect network communicates with the other
processors and adapters on the network. Processors or adapters that have a
modem or Ethernet connection notify the other processors and adapters that these
communications resources are available for use by other servers on the ASM
interconnect network. These resources are then used as ASM interconnect network
resources, enabling Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, or ASM PCI
adapters on the ASM interconnect network to send alerts using a modem or the
network, even if they do not have a modem or network connection physically
attached.
When alerts are generated, they are forwarded to the Remote Supervisor Adapter,
ASM processor, or ASM PCI adapter on the ASM interconnect network that has the
communication resources to forward the alert. If no system on the ASM interconnect
network meets the requirements, the alert is set for transmission if the connection
type is configured or becomes available later.
If multiple modems or network connections exist in the ASM interconnect network,
you cannot specify which system will receive an alert or which will use its modem or
network connection to forward the alert. If an alert is forwarded to a Remote
Supervisor Adapter, ASM processor, or ASM PCI adapter that is unable to deliver
the alert (for example, the modem it is configured to use has failed or the network
cannot resolve the destination IP address), the processor or adapter attempts to
26
xSeries 450: User’s Guide
forward the alert to another system on the ASM interconnect network that has the
communication resources to forward the alert.
Alerts are typically sent only once (per connection type), but an alert is forwarded to
another interconnect device if the resources exist on other interconnect devices in
the network. For example, on a three ASM processor network where ASM
processor 1 generates a modem alert, but does not have a modem and the other
ASM processors have modems, the following might occur:
If ASM processor 1 generates an alert and the modem is unplugged from ASM
processor 2 45 seconds prior to ASM processor 1 generating the alert, ASM
processor 1 forwards the alert to ASM processor 2, having previously determined
that ASM processor 2 has an available modem. When ASM processor 2 receives
the forwarded alert, it determines that a modem is attached to ASM processor 3,
and forwards the alert. Therefore, depending upon the time frame (45 seconds)
within which a resource (modem) fails, the alert might be forwarded multiple times
until an interconnect device can send the alert.
Connecting the ASM Interconnect module to the xSeries 450
The ASM Interconnect module connects the Remote Supervisor Adapter to the ASM
interconnect network. This module must be purchased separately. To connect the
ASM interconnect module to the Remote Supervisor Adapter, complete the following
steps.
Attention: To avoid damage to the Ethernet connector, do not plug the ASM
interconnect module into the Remote Supervisor Adapter Ethernet port.
1. Connect the ASM Interconnect module 1 to the Remote Supervisor Adapter
ASM interconnect (peer-to-peer) port 2 as shown in the following illustration.
This port is on the edge of the Remote Supervisor Adapter that is accessible
from the rear of the server and is labeled RS485.
2. Connect one or two Category 3 or Category 5 Ethernet cables to the other end
of the ASM Interconnect module.
3. Continue with “ASM interconnect network configuration examples” on page 28.

Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controller
The Ethernet controllers are integrated on the system board. They provide an
interface for connecting to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1-Gbps network and provide
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 controllers detect the data-transfer rate (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or
1000BASE-T) and duplex mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the network and
automatically operate at that rate and mode.
You do not need to set any jumpers or configure the controllers. However, you must
install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the controllers. For
device drivers and information about configuring the Ethernet controllers, see the
Resource CD that comes with your server. For updated information about
configuring the controllers, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.

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
37
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.
