Data Integrity and Verification

IBM computer systems contain mechanisms designed to reduce the possibility of undetected data corruption or loss. This risk, however, cannot be eliminated. Users who experience unplanned outages, system failures, power fluctuations or outages, or component failures must verify the accuracy of operations performed and data saved or transmitted by the system at or near the time of the outage or failure. In addition, users must establish procedures to ensure that there is independent data verification before relying on such data in sensitive or critical operations. Users should periodically check the IBM support websites for updated information and fixes applicable to the system and related software.

installation. For cabling illustrations, see Appendix G, “Subsystem Positioning and

Cabling” on page 83. For further details on the cable descriptions and labels, see

Appendix H, “Cabling Information” on page 95.

Connect any externally attached I/O devices to the I/O subsystems at this time using the procedures below.

If a display, Universal Serial Bus (USB) keyboard, and a USB mouse were ordered, do

the following. If these components were not ordered, proceed to 4 and 5 below.

1. Connect the keyboard cable to the Keyboard/Mouse Attachment Card PCI (adapter type N-D).

Note: Use any one of the four ports on the adapter; however, the adapter can support only one connection at a time.

2. Connect the mouse cable to the USB port on the upper corner of the rear of the keyboard.

3. Attach the display cable to either one of the two ports located on the graphics adapter .

4. Check all Blind Swap Cassettes for broken latches by lightly pushing down on rear of handles. Replace any broken latches.

5. Check to ensure adapters are seated by pushing down on the small metal tab on top of the adapter.

The placement of the graphics and keyboard adapters is described in the

PCI Adapter

Placement Reference, form number SA38-0538.

Step 8. Verify that the Emergency Power Off (UEPO) Switch is in the

Off Position

Note:

UEPO refers to the red Unit Emergency Power Off switch located on the unit.

EPO refers to the computer room Emergency Power off.

The unit emergency power off (UEPO) switch is located on the front of the primary frame (A Frame) of each pSeries 690. When the switch is tripped, utility power is confined to the machine power compartment. All volatile data will be lost.

Computer Room Emergency Power Off (EPO)

Attention:

When the integrated battery backup feature is installed and the room EPO is tripped, the batteries will engage and the computer will continue to run. It is possible to attach the computer room EPO system to the machine UEPO. When this is done, tripping the room EPO will disconnect all power from the line cords and the internal battery feature backup unit. In this event, all volatile data will be lost.

To incorporate the IBF into the room EPO a cable connection must be made to connect to the back of the system UEPO panel. The following diagrams illustrate how this

pSeries 690 Installation Guide

Step 9. Check the Outlets and the Power Source

CAUTION:

Do not touch the receptacle or the receptacle faceplate with anything other than your test probes before you have met the requirements in below.

Do the following to ensure that the customer has provided the correct power to the system:

__ 1. This system is equipped to use 200-240 V / 380-415 V / 480 V ac, three-phase.

Check that the correct power source is available.

__ 2. Have the customer locate and turn off the branch circuit breaker and attach tag

S229-0237, which reads “Do Not Operate.”

Note: All measurements are made with the receptacle faceplate in the normally installed position.

__ 3. Some receptacles are enclosed in metal housings. On receptacles of this type, perform the following steps: a. Check for less than 1 volt from the receptacle case to any grounded metal structure in the building, such as a raised-floor metal structure, water pipe, building steel, or similar structure.

b. Check for less than 1 volt from receptacle ground pin to a grounded point in the building.

Note: If the receptacle case or faceplate is painted, be sure the probe tip penetrates the paint and makes good electrical contact with the metal.

__ 4. Check the resistance from the ground pin of the receptacle to the receptacle case. Check resistance from the ground pin to building ground. The reading should be less than 1.0 ohm, which indicates the presence of a continuous grounding conductor.

Note: If measured impedance is greater that 1 ohm and the test instrument used was a digital multimeter, verify that the grounding impedance is correct by using an appropriately approved ground-impedance tester.

__ 5. If any of the checks made in substeps 2, 3 and 4 are not correct, ask the customer to remove the power from the branch circuit and make the wiring corrections; then check the receptacle again.

__ 6. Check for infinite resistance between the phase pins. This is a check for a wiring short.

CAUTION:

If the reading is other than infinity, do not proceed! Have the customer make necessary wiring corrections before continuing. Do not turn on the branch circuit CB until all the above steps are satisfactorily completed.

__ 7. Have the customer remove tag S229-0237, which reads “Do Not Operate” and turn on the branch circuit breaker.

Chapter 2. Installing the pSeries 690

19

Note: If your power source does not have a standard receptacle, check for voltage using local procedures.

Measure for appropriate voltages between phases. If no voltage is present on the receptacle case or grounded pin, the receptacle is safe to touch.

__ 8. With an appropriate meter, verify that the voltage at the outlet is correct.

Note:

v

For 200-240 V the acceptable phase-phase voltage measurement range is 180-254 V.

v v

For 380-415 V the acceptable phase-phase voltage measurement range is 342-440 V.

For 480 V the acceptable phase-phase voltage measurement range is

432-509 V.

__ 9. Verify that the grounding impedance is correct by using the ECOS 1020, 1023,

B7106, or an appropriately approved ground impedance tester.

__ 10. Have the customer turn off the branch circuit breaker and attach tag

S229-0237, which reads “Do Not Operate.”

Service Focal Point

Service representatives must use the HMC as the starting point for all service issues.

The HMC groups various system management issues at one control point. From this control point, service representatives use the Service Focal Point application to determine an appropriate service strategy.

Traditional service strategies become more complicated in a partitioned environment.

Each partition runs on its own, unaware that other partitions exist on the same system.

If one partition reports an error for a shared resource such as a managed system power supply, other active partitions report the same error. Service focal point enables service representatives to avoid long lists of repetitive call-home information. Service Focal

Point recognizes that these errors repeat, and filters them into one error code for the service representative to review.

Errors that require service are reported to the HMC as serviceable events. Because the

HMC stores these serviceable events for 90 days and then discards them, it is important to have the partition and HMC date and time set correctly. For instance, if the

40

pSeries 690 Installation Guide

|

| date on a partition’s software is set 90 days behind the HMC’s set time, the serviceable events reported from this partition are immediately discarded.

Getting Started

When you are setting up Service Focal Point, keep the following in mind: v

If the /var file system is full (either on the HMC or partitions), it can prevent

Serviceable Events from being reported to the HMC.

v v v

If the time configured on a partition is 90 days older than time configured on the

HMC, Serviceable Events cannot be reported.

Verify/configure the network - The network has to be configured prior to SFP working.

Verify that the HMC hostnames are fully qualified. For example, hostname should show hmc1.mydomain.mycompany.com.

v

Verify that the HMC and managed system are on the network and that DNS is working correctly. To do this, telnet to partitions from the HMC using the partitions’ hostname.

1. Verify or configure the network, by doing the following: v

Log in to the Hardware Management Console for pSeries (HMC) using the user

ID hscroot and password abc123

(if the password has been changed, obtain from Customer.)

Attention:

User IDs and passwords are case sensitive. Enter the user ID and password exactly as shown.

v v

Select the System Configuration Application in the Navigation area.

Verify the appropriate network information in the IP Address, Name Services, and Routing tabs on the Network Configuration window.

For Service Focal Point to be able to securely communicate with the partitions across the network, DNS or etc/hosts must consistently resolve the host names and

IP addresses of the HMC and the partitions to their canonical Fully Qualified

Domain Name (FQDN). Therefore, only fully qualified host names can be used in

Service Focal Point remote communication. Fully qualified host names cannot be more than 100 bytes in length.

2. Test Connectivity v

After insuring that the network is configured correctly, use the Test Connectivity function on the System Configuration Menu to test access to the network. The

Test Connectivity issues a ping command to the selected IP address. Obtain the

IP addresses of the Partition(s) from the customer and test the access.

3. Register Service Agent (if not already done) and generate a Test PMH - This must work correctly before continuing.

4. Test the AIX to SFP connection by doing the following:

There will only be posting of the event. Only Duplicate counts and timestamps will change. To generate more events, the open event must be changed to a closed status.

5. Test the AIX -> SFP-> SA path, by doing the following:

Note: This should never be attempted without first having the Remote Support actively engaged in the problem, as this results in a PMH being generated with an error that will be tracked as a real problem.

v

Insure that Call Home and Serviceable Events are enabled, the Service Agent delay has been changed to 1 minute in the Advanced Customization/Call

Controller field, then do steps a-h under the AIX to Service Focal Point connection verification instructions.

There is a default delay of 15 minutes from the time a Call Home Candidate request is received by Service Focal Point to Service Agent to dialout. You can changed this delay in Service Agent advanced customization, Call Controller pulldown.

If the event does not post, then contact software support.

Attach the Rack to a Concrete (Non-Raised) Floor

Use this procedure to attach the rack to a concrete (non-raised) floor.

Attention:

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the following steps are completed before the service representative performs the tie-down procedure.

Note: The customer should obtain the service of a qualified structural engineer to determine appropriate anchoring of the mounting plates. A minimum of three anchor bolts for each mounting plate must be used to secure the plates to the concrete floor. Because some of the drilled holes may be aligned with concrete reinforcement rods below the surface of the concrete floor, additional holes must be drilled. Each mounting plate must have at least three usable holes, two that are on opposite sides and opposite ends of each other, and one hole at the center. The mounting plates should be able to withstand 2500 pounds pulling force on each end.

pSeries 690 Installation Guide

Attaching the Rack to a Short or Long Raised Floor

Attention:

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the following steps are completed before the service representative performs the tie-down procedure.

Note: To accommodate a floor with a depth of more than 16 inches, asteel beam or a steel channel adapter for mounting the subfloor eyebolts are required. The customer must supply the floor eyebolts.

Consider the following when preparing the floor for tie-down: v

The hardware is designed to support a frame weighing no more than 2636 pounds.

v

The estimated maximum concentrated load on one caster for a 2636 pound-system is 900 pounds. For a multiple system installation, it is possible that one floor tile will bear a total concentrated load of 1800 pounds.

To install the eyebolts do the following:

1. Obtain the service of a qualified structural engineer to determine appropriate installation of the eyebolts.

2. Consider the following before installing the eyebolts: v

Floor eyebolts must be securely anchored to the concrete floor.

v

The minimum height of the center of the internal diameter is 1 inch above the concrete floor surface.

v v

The maximum is height 2.5 inches above the concrete floor surface. Higher than

2.5 inches can cause excessive lateral deflection to the tie-down hardware.

The eyebolt’s internal diameter should be 1 3/16 inch, and each eyebolt should be able to withstand 2700 pounds. The customer should obtain the service of a qualified consultant or structural engineer to determine the appropriate anchoring method for these eyebolts and to ensure that the raised floor can support the floor-loading specifications provided in the

Connect the Serial Cables from the pSeries 690 to the 8-Port ASYNC Adapters

Up to two optional 8-port async adapters can be installed. The D-shell connector on the back of the adapter attaches to the 8-port expansion cable. The cable is about 3 feet long, and on the other end, has a slim box (8 1/2 inches x 3 inches x 1 1/2 inches) with

8 separate serial port connectors on it. The cable is labeled ISA 8-Port Cable. Serial cables can be connected from any of the ports on the 8-port expansion cable to the

HSC1 ports on the managed systems.

If you are using a second, redundant HMC, connect cables from all the pSeries 690

HMC1 ports to the 8-port cable on one HMC, and connect all the pSeries 690 HMC2 ports to the 8-port cable on the other HMC. The use of the second HMC system serial port is not recommended because this port is defaulted to be used for the modem, and requires a number of configuration steps to work with the pSeries 690.

Installing the 128-Port ASYNC Adapter

The 128-Port ASYNC adapter is an option for the HMC. It must be configured by the customer engineer when the HMC is installed. The 128-Port ASYNC adapter software is installed in the HMC base software installation package.

This adapter provides the control function and connectors to attach eight 16-port remote async nodes (RANs). When all eight nodes are attached, this combination provides

128, EIA-232 or RS-422 communication ports.

|

|

|

|

|

|

128-Port ASYNC Adapter Line Connectors

The 128-Port ASYNC adapter has two 15 pin D-shell connectors on it. The connector that is closest to the edge connector that plugs into the HMC PC is line 1. The remote access nodes (RANs) are cabled in a daisy chain and are terminated using a line terminator. The following figure shows the adapter and the line connectors.

Up to eight RANS may be attached to one adapter total. If 4 are attached to line one, then only 4 more can be attached to line 2.

RANs MUST be numbered in ascending order. The RAN closest to the adapter is assigned as node 1. No gaps in the numbering should occur. Example, numbering

RANs as 1, 3, 4 in a line will cause configuration problems.

Setting a RAN Node Number

The AIX Asynchronous Communications Guide, provides information on configuring and running diagnostics on the 128 Port ASYNC Adapter and associated RANs. To access the AIX Asynchronous Communications Guide, see the AIX Online documentation. The adapter identifies RANs by their node numbers. Each RAN in a daisy chain must have a unique node number (

1n-4n), which must be set during installation. The node numbers must be assigned in ascending order with the lowest number assigned to the

RAN closest to the 128-Port ASYNC adapter. The following figure shows the front panel of a RAN.

AC

To set the RAN node number, do the following:

1. Turn the RAN on and wait for the power-on self-test (POST) to complete.

2. When

P1 is displayed on the front panel seven-segment LED display, press the Left

Arrow button once. The current node number is displayed, for example,

1n for node

1.

3. Press the Right Arrow button to advance the node number through the eight possible settings ( 1n-8n).

4. When the desired node number is displayed, press the Left Arrow button again to select the number. The display should now read Pn (indicating a pass condition). If there was an error, the display reads

En.

In the case of duplicate node numbers, the RAN farthest from the host adapter displays

En

, instead of

AC

, when the system is started.

For additional information, see step 5 on page 25 for an illustration showing the location

of the HMC connectors located on the primary I/O book. In this case, instead of using the native serial ports on the back of the HMC as shown following illustration, use the

Verify Installation is Complete by Using the HMC Interface

The HMC provides a predefined user called hscroot. The hscroot password is abc123.

This hscroot user ID is a member of the System Administrator role. When the console is powered on for the first time, use this user ID to log in. After you are logged in, you can create additional users.

Note: If the customer is installing a second pSeries 690, the HMC may have been preinstalled, and the hscroot password has probably been changed. If the HMC was already present from a previous installation, ask the customer for a login ID.

The customer may have already set up a special login for a service representative; if so, use this login ID.

After you power on your HMC, the HMC login window displays, and prompts you to enter your user ID and password.

You might request that a special user ID be created for the Service Representative role to perform service functions.

After the installation is complete, thepSeries 690 displays on the HMC interface. It may take a few minutes for a new system to display in the user interface after the cable is connected. When you log in to the HMC, the HMC management window opens, and the management environment is already selected. Select Partition Management to see the list of managed systems.This window is divided into the Navigation area and the

Contents area. The management window looks similar to the following illustration:

|

|

|

|

|

The panel on the left (the Navigation area) displays a hierarchy of icons that represent collections of systems, individual systems, managed resources, and tasks. Each

Navigation area icon identifies an application. At the highest point, or root of the tree, is the Management Environment. The Management Environment contains one or more

Appendix I. Service Processor Setup and Test

Attention:

This procedure applies to modems attached to the serial ports (S1 and S2) on the primary I/O book (location U1.18-P1-H2). It does not affect the operation of the modem attached to the Hardware Management Console for pSeries (HMC).

The call-out function is normally handled by the Service Focal Point running on the

HMC.

For your convenience, an example of a basic service processor setup checklist is included here. Your setup may include more or fewer of the available features, so you can adjust this checklist for your own application.

Note: The call-out and surveillance options are disabled in partitioned systems.

Service Processor Setup Checklist

1. Shut down the managed system, and wait for the

OK in the physical operator panel.

2. Open a virtual terminal on the HMC.

3. Bring up the service processor menus.

4. Set the system name.

5. Enable Surveillance.

6. Configure call-in/call-out.

7. Attach modems if necessary. If modem attachment is not necessary, proceed to

step 8. To attach a modem do the following:

v

Exit the service processor menus.

v

Disable 350V dc outputs from the BPA by placing the UEPO switch in the off position.

v v

Attention:

Power is still present within the BPA with the UEPO off.

Place the UEPO switch in the on position.

Proceed to step 8.

8. Test both of the following: v

Call-In, page “Testing Call-In” on page 102

v

Call-Out, page “Testing Call-Out” on page 103

9. Use the “Save or Restore Hardware Management Policies,” in the “Introduction to

Tasks and Service Aids” section of the RS/6000 and

Eserver

Diagnostic

Information for Multiple Bus Systems to back up the service processor settings.

Note: This is strongly recommended to protect the usefulness of the service processor and the availability of the server.

Your service processor is now ready for use.

101

Testing the Setup

This section contains sample testing procedures to help ensure your setup is working.

These tests include communicating with the server operating system. Before you start, ensure that the necessary serial port(s) is configured. If you need assistance, refer to

“Serial Port Configuration” on page 103.

The server should be powered off as a result of the “Service Processor Setup

Checklist” on page 101.

Testing Call-In

1. At your remote terminal, call in to your server. Your server answers and offers you the service processor Main Menu after requesting your privileged-access password.

2. Select System Power Control.

3. Select Power-On System.

When you are asked if you wish to continue powering on the system, type Y.

4. After the system firmware and operating system have initialized the server, the login prompt displays at your remote terminal if you set up seamless modem transfer.

This may take several minutes. When the login prompt displays, you have successfully called the service processor.

5. Type logout to disconnect from the operating system. The message

No Carrier displays on your remote terminal.

6. Call your server again. The operating system answers and offers you the login prompt. If these tests are successful, call-in is working.

7. Log in and type shutdown -F to shut down your server.

8. The message

No Carrier displays on your remote terminal.

102

pSeries 690 Installation Guide

Testing Call-Out

During the setup, you entered your phone numbers for the pager and customer voice.

These numbers are used for this test.

1. Your remote terminal is disconnected as a result of the Call-In test.

2. Call your server again.

3. At the service processor Main Menu, select Call-In/Call-Out Setup menu, then select Call-Out test. This action causes a simulated error condition for the purposes of this test.

4. After a few moments, a message displays, regarding an illegal entry. Press Enter to clear the message and return to the main menu.

5. When your telephone rings, answer the call. You should hear the sound of a telephone being dialed. This is your computer trying to page you.

If this test is successful, call-out is working correctly.

Serial Port Configuration

To configure the serial port on an AIX system, run the following from an AIX console:

1. Log in as root user.

2. To determine if you have any serial ports already configured, type: lsdev -Cc tty

If no serial ports are configured, none are listed. If you want to configure serial ports that are not listed, continue with the remaining steps.

3. Identify the serial port(s) with the modem(s).

4. Type smit tty

5. Select add tty

6. Select RS232

7. Select Baud rate 9600 or higher.

8. Select login enable and set the flow control to RTS.

9. Commit the selections and set up any other needed serial ports.

10. Exit SMIT.

Options for Performing this Procedure

Two scenarios exist for performing this procedure: v

Removing and installing the rack top frame for clearance through doorways v

Installing the rack top frame that was shipped unattached from the rest of the frame.

Note: If the clearance is close (an interference of 1/2 inch or less), the removal of the

side covers may be all that is required. For side cover removal, please see “Side

Cover Removal” on page 108.

For additional information, refer to RPQ8A1173. For clearance procedures, go to

“Removing the Rack Top Frame for Clearance Through Doorways” on page 108. For

the reduced height procedure, go to “Preparing for Rack Top Frame Installation for pSeries 690 (Reduced Height Option) RPQ8A1173” on page 115.

Note: Due to the weight of the rack top frame, two people are required to restore the rack to full height.

Side Cover Removal

1. Always remove the right side cover first.

2. Remove the (2) Screws and washers inside the frame (P/N’s 77G0599 and

1625437).

3. Remove the (3) Screws at the top of the frame (P/N’s 54G2882). The use of a step ladder is recommended for this procedure.

4. With all the screws removed, rock the cover to the right from the top. There are features built into the cover that lock it behind the left hand cover - these need to clear before you can lift the cover from the frame. Tilting the top of the cover away from the frame after the feature tabs have cleared the left hand cover makes lifting the cover easier.

5. Follow steps 2 and 3 for removing the left hand cover.

6. With all the screws removed from the cover, tilt the top of the cover away from the frame and lift off.

Removing the Rack Top Frame for Clearance Through Doorways

1. Use the jack screws to stabilize and lift the rack off the floor.

a. Loosen the jam nut on each leveling foot by turning the nut counter-clockwise.

b. Rotate each leveling foot downward until it contacts the surface on which the rack is placed.

c. Adjust the leveling feet downward as needed until the rack is level. When the rack is level, tighten the jam nuts against the base by turning the nut clockwise.
