Operations
Power up the server blade
The Onboard Administrator initiates an automatic power-up sequence when the server blade is installed. If
the default setting is changed, use one of the following methods to power up the server blade:
•
Use a virtual power button selection through HP iLO.
•
Press and release the Power On/Standby button.
When the server blade goes from the standby mode to the full power mode, the system power LED changes
from amber to solid green. The health status LED bar flashes green when the Power On/Standby Button
service is being initialized. For more information about the system power LED status, see "Front panel LEDs
and buttons (on page 6)."
For more information about the Onboard Administrator, see the enclosure setup and installation guide on the
HP website (http://www.hp.com/support/oa).
For more information about HP iLO, see "HP iLO (on page 51)."
Power down the server blade
Before powering down the server blade for any upgrade or maintenance procedures, perform a backup of
critical server data and programs.

Installing an HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure
Before performing any server blade-specific procedures, install an HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure.
The most current documentation for server blades and other HP BladeSystem components is available at the
HP website (http://www.hp.com/support/BladeSystem/docs).
Preparing the enclosure
CAUTION: Failure to install the divider in a quadrant when installing half-height blades can
result in damage to the connectors on the server blades.
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and thermal damage, do not operate the server blade
or the enclosure unless all drive and device bays are populated with either a component or a
blank.
IMPORTANT: For optimal cooling and system performance, configure the c7000 enclosure with
ten fans and configure the c3000 enclosure with six fans.
HP BladeSystem enclosures ship with device bay dividers to support half-height devices. If the dividers have
been removed, always reinstall the dividers before installing half-height devices and device bay blanks. For
more information on installing the device bay dividers, see the enclosure user guide.
Installing server blade options
Before installing and initializing the server blade, install any server blade options, such as an additional
processor, hard drive, or mezzanine card. For server blade options installation information, see "Hardware
options installation (on page 25)."

To connect the HP BladeSystem to a network, each enclosure must be configured with network interconnect
devices to manage signals between the server blades and the external network.
Setup 22
Two types of interconnect modules are available for HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures: Pass-Thru modules
and switch modules. For more information about interconnect module options, see the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/bladesystem/interconnects).
IMPORTANT: To connect to a network with a Pass-Thru module, always connect the Pass-Thru
module to a network device that supports Gigabit or 10 Gb speed, depending on the
corresponding Pass-Thru model.
Installing a server blade
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and thermal damage, do not operate the server blade
enclosure unless all bays are populated with either a component or a blank.
CAUTION: Failure to install the divider in a quadrant when installing half-height blades can
result in damage to the connectors on the server blades.
For the best possible HP BladeSystem and Virtual Connect experience, and to prevent a future reboot, HP
requires updating the Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect to the correct version before installing an
HP ProLiant Gen9 server blade. The version information is located on the tag on the front of the server blade.

Memory options
IMPORTANT: This server blade does not support mixing LRDIMMs or RDIMMs. Attempting to mix
any combination of these DIMMs can cause the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
Hardware options installation
31
The memory subsystem in this server blade can support LRDIMMs and RDIMMs:
•
RDIMMs offer address parity protection.
•
LRDIMMs support higher densities than single- and dual-rank RDIMMs, and higher speeds than
quad-rank RDIMMs. This support enables you to install more high capacity DIMMs, resulting in higher
system capacities and higher bandwidth.
All types are referred to as DIMMs when the information applies to all types. When specified as LRDIMM or
RDIMM, the information applies to that type only. All memory installed in the server blade must be the same
type.
The server supports the following DIMM speeds:
•
Single- and dual-rank PC4-2133 (DDR4-2133) RDIMMs operating at up to 2133 MT/s
•
Quad-rank PC4L-2133 (DDR4-2133) LRDIMMs operating at up to 2133 MT/s

HP SmartMemory
HP SmartMemory authenticates and unlocks certain features available only on HP Qualified memory and
verifies whether installed memory has passed HP qualification and test processes. Qualified memory is
performance-tuned for HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers and provides future enhanced support through
HP Active Health and manageability software.
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server blade is divided into channels. Each processor supports four channels,
and each channel supports two DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.

For the location of the slot numbers, see "DIMM slot locations (on page 10)."
This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode.
DIMM slots in this server blade are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the population order.
Slot numbers indicate the DIMM slot ID for spare replacement.
Single-, dual-, and quad-rank DIMMs
To understand and configure memory protection modes properly, an understanding of single-, dual-, and
quad-rank DIMMs is helpful. Some DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications.
A single-rank DIMM has one set of memory chips that is accessed while writing to or reading from the
memory. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two single-rank DIMMs on the same module, with only one
rank accessible at a time. A quad-rank DIMM is, effectively, two dual-rank DIMMs on the same module. Only
one rank is accessible at a time. The server blade memory control subsystem selects the proper rank within
the DIMM when writing to or reading from the DIMM.
Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For
example, if current DRAM technology supports 8-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 16
GB, and a quad-rank DIMM would be 32 GB.
LRDIMMs are labeled as quad-rank DIMMs. There are four ranks of DRAM on the DIMM, but the LRDIMM
buffer creates an abstraction that allows the DIMM to appear as a dual-rank DIMM to the system. The
LRDIMM buffer isolates the electrical loading of the DRAM from the system to allow for faster operation. This
allows higher memory operating speed compared to quad-rank RDIMMs.
DIMM identification
To determine DIMM characteristics, use the label attached to the DIMM and the following illustration and

Memory configurations
To optimize server blade availability, the server blade supports the following AMP modes:
•
Advanced ECC—Provides up to 4-bit error correction and enhanced performance over Lockstep mode.
This mode is the default option for this server blade.
•
Online spare memory—Provides protection against failing or degraded DIMMs. Certain memory is
reserved as spare, and automatic failover to spare memory occurs when the system detects a DIMM that
is degrading. This allows DIMMs that have a higher probability of receiving an uncorrectable memory
error (which would result in system downtime) to be removed from operation.
Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in the BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU). If the
requested AMP mode is not supported by the installed DIMM configuration, the server blade boots in
Advanced ECC mode. For more information, see the HP UEFI System Utilities User Guide for HP ProLiant
Gen9 Servers on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/uefi/docs).

For the latest memory configuration information, see the QuickSpecs on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/qs).
Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server blade. Standard ECC can
correct single-bit memory errors and detect multi-bit memory errors. When multi-bit errors are detected using
Standard ECC, the error is signaled to the server blade and causes the server blade to halt.
Hardware options installation
34
Advanced ECC protects the server blade against some multi-bit memory errors. Advanced ECC can correct
both single-bit memory errors and 4-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the
DIMM.
Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC because it is possible to correct certain
memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrected and result in a server blade failure. Using HP Advanced
Memory Error Detection technology, the server blade provides notification when a DIMM is degrading and
has a higher probability of uncorrectable memory error.
Online Spare memory configuration
Online spare memory provides protection against degraded DIMMs by reducing the likelihood of
uncorrected memory errors. This protection is available without any operating system support.
Online spare memory protection dedicates one rank of each memory channel for use as spare memory. The
remaining ranks are available for OS and application use. If correctable memory errors occur at a rate
higher than a specific threshold on any of the non-spare ranks, the server blade automatically copies the
memory contents of the degraded rank to the online spare rank. The server blade then deactivates the failing
rank and automatically switches over to the online spare rank.
General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
•
When two processors are installed, balance the DIMMs across the two processors.
•
White DIMM slots denote the first slot of a channel (Ch 1-A, Ch 2-B, Ch 3-C, Ch 4-D)
•
Do not mix RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.
•
When one processor is installed, install DIMMs in sequential alphabetic order: A, B, C, D, E, F, and so
forth.
•
When two processors are installed, install the DIMMs in sequential alphabetic order balanced between
the two processors: P1-A, P2-A, P1-B, P2-B, P1-C, P2-C, and so forth.
•
For DIMM spare replacement, install the DIMMs per slot number as instructed by the system software.
For more information about server blade memory, see the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/memory).
DIMM speeds are supported as indicated in the following table.

HP iLO
The HP iLO subsystem is a standard component of HP ProLiant servers that simplifies initial server blade setup,
server health monitoring, power and thermal optimization, and remote server administration. The HP iLO
subsystem includes an intelligent microprocessor, secure memory, and a dedicated network interface. This
design makes HP iLO independent of the host server and its operating system.
HP iLO enables and manages the Active Health System (on page 52) and also features Agentless
Management. All key internal subsystems are monitored by HP iLO. If enabled, SNMP alerts are sent directly
by HP iLO regardless of the host operating system or even if no host operating system is installed.
Embedded remote support software is available on HP ProLiant Gen8 and later servers with iLO 4, regardless
of the operating system software and without installing OS agents on the server.
Software and configuration utilities
51
Using HP iLO, you can do the following:
•
Access a high-performance and secure Integrated Remote Console to the server from anywhere in the
world if you have a network connection to the server.
•
Use the shared .NET Integrated Remote Console to collaborate with up to four server administrators.
•
Remotely mount high-performance Virtual Media devices to the server blade.
•
Securely and remotely control the power state of the managed server blade.
•
Implement true Agentless Management with SNMP alerts from HP iLO, regardless of the state of the host
server.
•
Download the Active Health System log.
•
Register for HP Insight Remote Support.
•
Use iLO Federation to manage multiple servers from one system running the iLO web interface.
•
Use Virtual Power and Virtual Media from the GUI, the CLI, or the iLO scripting toolkit for many tasks,
including the automation of deployment and provisioning.
•

configuration. When the system loads the default settings, it uses the custom default settings instead of the
factory defaults.
Secure Boot configuration
Secure Boot is integrated in the UEFI specification on which the HP implementation of UEFI is based. Secure
Boot is completely implemented in the BIOS and does not require special hardware. It ensures that each
component launched during the boot process is digitally signed and that the signature is validated against a
set of trusted certificates embedded in the UEFI BIOS. Secure Boot validates the software identity of the
following components in the boot process:
•
UEFI drivers loaded from PCIe cards
•
UEFI drivers loaded from mass storage devices
•
Pre-boot UEFI shell applications
•
OS UEFI boot loaders
Once enabled, only firmware components and operating systems with boot loaders that have an appropriate
digital signature can execute during the boot process. Only operating systems that support Secure Boot and
have an EFI boot loader signed with one of the authorized keys can boot when Secure Boot is enabled. For

USB support
HP provides standard USB 2.0 support, standard USB 3.0 support, and legacy USB support. Standard
support is provided by the OS through the appropriate USB device drivers.
Before the OS loads, HP provides support for USB 2.0 devices through legacy USB support, which is enabled
by default in the system ROM. USB 3.0 ports are not functional before the OS loads. The native OS provides
USB 3.0 support through appropriate xHCI drivers.
Legacy USB support provides USB functionality in environments where USB support is not available normally.
Specifically, HP provides legacy USB functionality for the following:
•
POST (system boot)
•
UEFI System Utilities
•
Pre-boot UEFI shell
•
DOS
•
Operating environments which do not provide native USB support
External USB functionality
HP provides external USB support to enable local connection of USB devices for server blade administration,
configuration, and diagnostic procedures.
For additional security, external USB functionality can be disabled through USB options in UEFI System
Utilities.
Redundant ROM support
The server blade enables you to upgrade or configure the ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The
server blade has a single ROM that acts as two separate ROM images. In the standard implementation, one
side of the ROM contains the current ROM program version, while the other side of the ROM contains a
backup version.
NOTE: The server ships with the same version programmed on each side of the ROM.
Safety and security benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and saves the current ROM as a
backup, enabling you to switch easily to the alternate ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted for
any reason. This feature protects the existing ROM version, even if you experience a power failure while
flashing the ROM.
Keeping the system current

Electrostatic discharge
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the system
or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system
boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To
provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when
standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller install
the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for
greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP service
Support and other resources
69
providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will
ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts,
you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for customer
self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be additional
charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty,
HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the
Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits.
If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the
telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must
be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective
part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be
returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective
part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping
and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For the
North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Réparation par le client (CSR)
Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client) afin
de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant la
période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut être
effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces CSR:
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront facturés.
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont également
conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type de garantie applicable à
votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit effectué
par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre situation
géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le jour même
ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance téléphonique, appelez le
Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de rechange CSR, HP précise
s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous devez le faire dans le délai
indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation doivent être retournées dans
l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se réserve le droit de vous facturer les
coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de
retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à utiliser.

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di assistenza
HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente al cliente per
la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida la
riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di componenti
progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP, potrebbe dover sostenere
spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare la
garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti sono
identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un supplemento
di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di un addetto del
centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP specifica se il cliente
deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente difettoso, lo si deve
spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni lavorativi. Il
componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di spedizione
fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio da parte di HP.
Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e resa e sceglie il
corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und höhere
Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP Servicepartner) bei der
Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses
Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien unterteilt:
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie den
Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten für diesen
Service berechnet.
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für Customer
Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen möchten,
können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen Garantiebedingungen zusätzliche
Kosten anfallen.
Support and other resources
71
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag geliefert.
Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen einen
Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center anrufen und
sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSR-Ersatzteil geliefert
werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden muss. Wenn es
erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines vorgegebenen
Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss mit der zugehörigen
Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das
defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung stellen. Im Falle von Customer
Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf und bestimmt den
Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer Self
Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de realizar
sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los proveedores o socios
de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el uso de un componente
CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su sustitución. Los componentes CSR se
clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si solicita a
HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los gastos de
desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo, si
precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del tipo de
servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para que
el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios autorizado
realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra "No" en el
catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a su
destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega en el
mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al Centro de
asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de materiales
para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos deberán
devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP, deberá
hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los componentes
defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje de envío. Si no
enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En el caso de todas
Support and other resources

sustituciones que lleve a cabo el cliente, HP se hará cargo de todos los gastos de envío y devolución de
componentes y escogerá la empresa de transporte que se utilice para dicho servicio.

contacto con su proveedor de servicios local. Si está interesado en el programa para Norteamérica, visite

Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner) bij
de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP dat
onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze onderdelen
voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening gebracht.
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn ontworpen
voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te vervangen, kunnen
daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type garantieservice voor het
product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband met
de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden vervangen.
Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen. Bij
reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde onderdeel en
kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o reparo
pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao cliente.
Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua essas peças,
serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
Support and other resources
73
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas para o
reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a cobrança de
taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após o
pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode ser
feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte técnico
da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a peça CSR
de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for necessário, é
preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente cinco (5) dias úteis.
A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no material de transporte
fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de reparo feito pelo cliente, a
HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e determina a transportadora/serviço
postal a ser utilizado.
Para obter mais informações sobre o programa de reparo feito pelo cliente da HP, entre em contato com o
fornecedor de serviços local. Para o programa norte-americano, visite o site da HP
