Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices and your system. To
avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective bag until you are
ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
x
•
Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up
around you.
•
Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
•
Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
•
Do not leave the device where others can handle and possibly damage the
device.
•
While the device is still in its anti-static package, touch it to an unpainted metal
part of the system unit for at least two seconds. (This drains static electricity
from the package and from your body.)
•
Remove the device from its package and install it directly into your system unit
without setting it down. If it is necessary to set the device down, place it on its
static-protective package. (If your device is an adapter, place it component side
up.) Do not place the device on your system unit cover or on a metal table.
•
Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather as heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides instructions to help you install options in your server. Some
option-removal instructions are provided, in case you need to remove one option to
install another. This section is for all users, but is written with the experienced user in
mind. If you need more detailed installation information, refer to the User’s Reference
on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Moving the stabilizing feet
The two front feet attached to the bottom of the server rotate 90 degrees to provide
additional stability.
When you need to access the inside of the server, to install options, you might find it
easier to lay the server on its side. If you do so, rotate the feet in towards the server, so
they do not break off due to the weight of the server.
When you are finished installing options and have reinstalled the side cover, turn the
two front stabilizing feet a quarter turn out from the server and set it carefully back on
its feet.

Working with adapters
Your server comes with adapter connectors, called slots. The AGP video adapter is
installed in the AGP slot. You can install up to five PCI adapters in PCI expansion
slots 1 through 5. All PCI expansion slots are 32-bit, 33 MHz slots.
Note:
The illustrations in this document might differ slightly from your hardware.
The following illustration shows the location of the PCI expansion slots on the system
and PCI extender boards.
AGP slot
PCI slot 1
PCI slot 2
PCI slot 3
PCI slot 4
PCI slot 5
Adapter considerations
Before you install an adapter, review the following:
•
Locate the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions given in this chapter. If you need to
change switch or jumper settings on your adapter, follow the instructions that
come with the adapter.
•
You can install full-length adapters in all five PCI expansion slots.
•
Your server supports 5.0V and universal PCI adapters; it does not support 3.3V
adapters.
•
Your server uses a rotational interrupt technique to configure PCI adapters.
Because of this technique, you can install a variety of PCI adapters that currently
do not support sharing of PCI interrupts.
•
PCI slots 1 through 5 are on PCI bus 0.
The system scans the AGP slot and PCI expansion slots 1 through 5 to assign
system resources; then, the system starts (boots) the PCI devices in the following
order, if you have not changed the default boot sequence: PCI expansion slots 1
and 2, system board integrated drive electronics (IDE) or small computer system
interface (SCSI) devices, and then PCI expansion slots 3 through 5.
Note:
8
IBM xSeries 200: Installation Guide
To change the boot sequence for PCI devices, start the
Configuration/Setup Utility program, and select Start Options from the
main menu, select Startup Sequence; then, select Second device (SCSI)
to designate the adapter boot sequence. Refer to the User’s Reference on
the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for details on using the
Configuration/Setup Utility program.

Complete the following steps to install an adapter.
Attention: When you handle electrostatic discharge-sensitive devices (ESD), take
precautions to avoid damage from static electricity. For details on handling these
devices, see “Handling static-sensitive devices” on page x.
1. Review the safety precautions listed in Statement 1 and 5 in “Safety” on page v.
2. Turn off the server and peripheral devices and disconnect all external cables and
power cords; then, remove the side cover. See “Removing the side cover” on page
6 for details.
3. Determine which PCI expansion slot you will use for the adapter.
Note:
Check the instructions that come with the adapter for any requirements,
restrictions, or cabling instructions. It might be easier for you to route any
cables before you install the adapter.
4. If you are installing a full-length adapter, rotate the front adapter support bracket
to the open (unlocked) position.
5. Rotate the rear adapter retaining bracket to the open (unlocked) position; then,
place it over the rear of the server.
6. Remove the PCI expansion-slot cover. From the rear of the server, press in on the
slot cover. Grasp it and pull it out of the slot. Store it in a safe place for future use.
Attention: PCI expansion-slot covers must be installed on all vacant slots. This
maintains the electromagnetic emissions characteristics of the server and ensures
proper cooling of server components.
Chapter 2. Installing options

7. Touch the static-protective package containing the adapter to any unpainted
metal surface on the server. Then, remove the adapter from the package. Avoid
touching the components and gold-edge connectors on the adapter.
8. Place the adapter, component-side up, on a flat, static-protective surface.
9. Set any jumpers or switches as described by the adapter manufacturer.
10. To install the adapter, carefully grasp the adapter by its top edge or upper corners,
and align it with the PCI slot guides; then, press the adapter firmly into the PCI
expansion slot.
Attention: When you install an adapter in the server, be sure that it is completely
and correctly seated in the PCI expansion slot before you turn on the server.
Incomplete insertion might cause damage to the system board or the adapter.
11. Connect required cables to the adapter.
Attention: Route cables so that they do not block the flow of air from the fans.
12. If you have another adapter to install, do so now.

Notes:
1. See the "Solving Problems" section in the User’s Reference on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD for more detailed troubleshooting charts.
2. If you cannot find the problem in the troubleshooting charts, run the diagnostic
programs. If you have run the diagnostic test programs, or if running the tests
does not reveal the problem, call for service.
Monitor
The screen is blank.
Suggestion Action
Verify that:
1. The server power cord is plugged into the server and a working electrical
outlet.
2. The monitor cables are connected properly.
3. The monitor is turned on, and the brightness and contrast controls are adjusted
correctly.
If the items above are correct and the screen remains blank, call for service.
Only the cursor appears.
Call for service.
The monitor works when you
turn on the server, but goes
blank when you start some
application programs.
Verify that:
1. The primary monitor cable is connected to the video port.
2. You installed the necessary device drivers for the applications.
Some IBM monitors have their own self-tests. If you suspect a problem with your
monitor, refer to the information that comes with the monitor for adjusting and
testing instructions.
If the items above are correct and the screen remains blank, call for service.
Wavy, unreadable, rolling,
distorted screen, or screen jitter.
If the monitor self-tests show the monitor is OK, consider the location of the
monitor. Magnetic fields around other devices (such as transformers, appliances,
fluorescent lights, and other monitors) can cause screen jitter or wavy, unreadable,
rolling, or distorted screen images. If this happens, turn off the monitor. (Moving a
color monitor while it is turned on might cause screen discoloration.) Then move the
device and the monitor at least 305 mm (12 in.) apart. Turn on the monitor.
Notes:
1. To prevent diskette drive read/write errors, be sure the distance between
monitors and diskette drives is at least 76 mm (3 in.).
2. Non-IBM monitor cables might cause unpredictable problems.
3. An enhanced monitor cable with additional shielding is available for the 9521
and 9527 monitors. For information about the enhanced monitor cable, see your
IBM reseller or IBM marketing representative.

The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship
and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications. The warranty period for a
Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date
on your sales receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or your reseller informs
you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, will provide repair and exchange service for the Machine, without
charge, under the type of service designated for the Machine and will manage and
install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good
working order.
Extent of Warranty
The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine resulting from
misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment,
improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not
responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or parts
identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION
TO JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO
THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN
THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE
WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
Unless specified otherwise, IBM provides non-IBM machines WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such as
assistance via telephone with "how-to" questions and those regarding Machine set-up
and installation, will be provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, contact your reseller or IBM. In the
United States, call IBM at 1-800-772-2227. In Canada, call IBM at 1-800-565-3344. (In
Toronto, call 416-383-3344.) You may be required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller provides certain types of repair and exchange service, either at
your location or at a service center, to keep Machines in, or restore them to,
conformance with their Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the
available types of service for a Machine based on its country of installation. IBM may
repair the failing Machine or exchange it at its discretion.
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
34
IBM xSeries 200: Installation Guide
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.
Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM or your reseller services must be installed on
a Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine
and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or
upgrade. 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.
Production Status
Each IBM Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In some
cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously installed.
Regardless of the Machine’s production status, IBM’s appropriate warranty terms
apply.
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 contract or tort claim), 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 greater of U.S. $100,000
(or equivalent in local currency) or the charges (if recurring, 12 months’ charges
apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
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.
