System reliability guidelines
To help ensure proper system cooling and system reliability, make sure that:
•
Each of the drive bays has a drive or a filler panel and electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) shield installed in it.
•
There is adequate space around the server to allow the server cooling system to
work properly. Leave approximately 50 mm (2 in.) of open space around the front
and rear of the server. Do not place objects in front of the fans.
•
You have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.
•
You have replaced a failed fan as soon as possible.
Working inside the server with the power on
Your server supports hot-plug, hot-add, and hot-swap devices and is designed to
operate safely while it is turned on and the cover is removed. Follow these guidelines
when you work inside a server that is turned on:
•
Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts
before working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working
inside the server.

Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices, including your server. To
avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective packages until
you are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of damage from electrostatic discharge, observe the following
precautions:
•
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 circuitry.
•
Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
•
While the device is still in its static-protective package, touch it to an unpainted
metal part of the server for at least 2 seconds. This drains static electricity from
the package and from your body.
•
Remove the device from its package and install it directly into the server without
setting down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, place it back into
its static-protective package. Do not place the device on your server cover or on a
metal surface.
•
Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces
indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
Moving the stabilizing feet
When the four feet on the bottom of the server are in the stabilizing position, they
provide additional stability.
Complete the following steps to place the feet in the stabilizing position:
1. Place the server on its side.
2. Locate the release tab inside the foot; then, lift up on the tab.
The following illustration shows the rear feet on the bottom rear of the server.

the drive and do not replace it with another.
•
For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/compat/ on the World Wide Web.
Preinstallation steps (all bays)
Before you install drives in your server, verify that you have all the cables and any
other equipment specified in the documentation that comes with the drive. You might
also need to perform certain preinstallation activities. Some of the steps are required
only during the initial installation of an option.
1. Read “Safety” on page v, “Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 6, and the
documentation that comes with your drive.
2. Choose the bay in which you want to install the drive.
3. Check the instructions that come with the drive to see if you need to set any
switches or jumpers on the drive.
Power and signal cables for internal drives
Your server uses cables to connect IDE devices to the power supply and to the system
board. The following cables are provided:
•
Four-wire power cables connect the drives to the power supply. At the end of
these cables are plastic connectors that can be attached to different drives; these
connectors vary in size. Also, certain power cables are attached to the system
board.
•
Flat signal cables, also called ribbon cables, connect IDE and diskette drives to
the system board. There are two sizes of ribbon cables that come with your
server:
— The wider IDE signal cable has two or three connectors.
–
If the cable has three connectors, one of these connectors is attached to
the drive, one is a spare, and the third is attached to the primary or
secondary IDE connector on the system board.
–
If the cable has two connectors, one of these connectors is attached to
the hard disk drive, and the other is attached to the primary or secondary
IDE connector on the system board.
Note: The CD-ROM drive is attached to an ATA 66 signal cable. The hard
disk drive is attached to an ATA 100 signal cable. ATA 66 and ATA 100
signal cables are color-coded. The blue connector attaches to the
system board. The black connector attaches to the primary device. If
the cable has a gray middle connector, it attaches to the secondary
device. If you are installing a hard disk drive, you must change the
switch setting on the CD-ROM drive to secondary and change the
connector used for the CD-ROM drive to the gray middle connector.
— The narrower signal cable has two connectors, one to attach to the diskette
drive, and the other to attach to the connector (FDD1) on the system board.
•
SCSI signal cables connect SCSI devices to a SCSI adapter or to the internal
SCSI connector on the extender card (some models). If you have a SCSI adapter
installed in your server, the SCSI signal cable has four connectors. One
connector is attached to the SCSI connector on the extender card, two connectors
are spares, and the fourth connector is attached to a SCSI hard disk drive.
To locate connectors on the system board, see “System-board internal cable
connectors” on page 4.
Chapter 2. Installing options
15
Review the following information before connecting power and signal cables to internal
drives:
•
The drives that are preinstalled in your server come with power and signal cables
attached. If you replace any drives, it is important to remember which cable is
attached to which drive.
•
When you install a drive, ensure that the drive connector at the end of the signal
cable is always connected to a drive, and ensure that the drive connector at the
other end is connected to the system board.
•
If you have only one IDE device on a cable, it must be set as a primary device.
•
If two IDE devices are used on a single cable, one must be designated as the
primary device and the other as the secondary device; otherwise, the server might
not detect some of the IDE devices. The primary and secondary designation is
determined by switch or jumper settings on each IDE device.
•
If two IDE devices are on a single cable and only one is a hard disk drive, the hard
disk drive must be set as a primary device.
•
You must set the SCSI ID for any SCSI device that you install in your server. Each
SCSI device has its own methods and considerations for setting the SCSI ID. See
the instructions that come with the device for details about setting the SCSI ID for
the SCSI device.

Installing a hot-swap hard disk drive in bay 5, 6, or 7
If your server is a hot-swap model, you can install or replace a hard disk drive without
turning off the server. Therefore, you can continue to operate your system while a
hard disk drive is removed or installed. To do this, you must install a hot-swap hard
disk drive. If a hot-swap disk drive is connected to an optional controller, such as a
RAID controller that supports this function, and if your hot-swap drive becomes
defective, the RAID controller can rebuild the data from that drive onto another hotswap drive. See the information that comes with your RAID controller for details.
Each hot-swap drive has two LEDs: the hard disk drive activity LED and the hard disk
drive status LED. When the green hard disk drive activity LED is flashing, the
controller is accessing the hard disk drive. When this occurs, the hard disk drive
activity LED on the front of the server is also lit. If the amber hard disk drive status
LED for a drive is lit continuously, that individual drive is faulty and requires
20
Book Title
replacement. When the hard disk drive status LED indicates a drive fault, you can
replace a hot-swap drive without turning off the server.
Each hot-swap drive that you plan to install comes mounted in a hot-swap-drive tray.
The drive must have a single connector attachment (SCA) connector. Hot-swap-drive
trays come with hot-swap drives.
The hot-swap bays are connected to a SCSI backplane. This backplane is the printed
circuit board behind the bay. The backplane controls the SCSI IDs for the hot-swap
drives.

International Warranty Service
If you travel with your xSeries or IntelliStation system or relocate it to a country or
region where your system is sold and serviced by IBM or IBM resellers authorized to
perform warranty service, International Warranty Service (IWS) is available during the
warranty period. Eligible IBM systems are identified by their four-digit machine types.
You can obtain IWS through the service delivery method (such as depot, carry-in, or
on-site) provided in the servicing country or region. Service methods and procedures

vary by country or region, and some service or parts might not be available in all
countries and regions. Service centers in certain countries or regions might not be
able to service all models of a particular machine type. In addition, some countries or
regions might have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service.
To determine whether your system is eligible for IWS, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/ and click Warranty lookup.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty
Z125-4753-06 8/2000
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The
warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to
Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The
term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades,
elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term “Machine” does not
include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed
subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties
apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement of
Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or
limited by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
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 (“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.
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.
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. 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 a Machine, contact IBM or your
reseller. If you do not register your Machine with IBM, you may be required to present
proof of purchase.
During the warranty period, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, provides without charge certain types of repair and exchange
service to keep Machines in, or restore them to, conformance with their Specifications.
46
Book Title
IBM or your reseller will inform you of the available types of service for a Machine
based on its country of installation. At its discretion, IBM or your reseller will 1) either
repair or exchange the failing Machine and 2) provide the 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
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
Appendix B. Warranty information
47
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.
