IBM® xSeries 250: Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides the basic information needed to install hardware options in
your server. This section is for all users, but is written with the experienced user in
mind. If you need more detailed installation information, see the User’s Reference on
the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Before you begin
Before you begin to install options in your server, read the following information:
•
Become familiar with the safety and handling guidelines specified under
“Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 8, and read the safety statements in
“Safety” on page v. These guidelines will help you work safely while working
with your server or options.
•
You do not need to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap power
supplies, hot-swap drives, hot-swap fans, Active peripheral component
interconnect (PCI) (hot-plug) adapters, or hot-plug USB devices.
•
The orange color on components and labels in your server identifies hot-swap or
hot-plug components. This means that you can install or remove the component
while the system is running, provided that your system is configured to support
this function.
•
The blue color on components and labels identifies touch points where you can
grip a component, move a latch, and so on.
•
Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and any other options that you intend to install.
•
Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
•
For a list of supported options for the xSeries 250, refer to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat on the World Wide Web.
System reliability considerations
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure:
•
Each of the drive bays has either a drive or a filler panel installed.
•
Each of the power supply bays has either a power supply or a filler panel
installed.
•
There are at least 50 mm (2 inches) of ventilated space at the sides of the server
and 100 mm (4 inches) at the rear of the server.
•
The top cover is in place during normal operation.
•
The top cover is removed for no longer than 30 minutes while the server is
operating.
•
A removed hot-swap drive is replaced within two minutes of removal.
•
Cables for optional adapters are routed according to the instructions provided
with the adapters.
•
A failed fan is replaced within 48 hours.

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 turned on with the cover removed. Follow these guidelines when
you work inside a server that is turned on:
•
Avoid 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.
•
Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
•
Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.
•
Remove items from your shirt pocket (such as pens or pencils) that could fall into
the server as you lean over it.
•
Avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hair pins, or screws, into
the server.
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 package until you are
ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
8
•
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 static-protective 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 because heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
IBM® xSeries 250: Installation Guide
Removing the server top cover and bezel
Review the information in “Before you begin” on page 7 through “Handling staticsensitive devices” on page 8.
Removing the top cover
Note: The illustrations in this book might differ slightly from your hardware.
Top cover
Captive screws
To remove the server top cover:
1.
Loosen the two screws on the back edge of the top cover.
2.
Slide the top cover slightly toward the rear of the server. Lift the cover off the
server and set the cover aside.
Attention: For proper cooling and airflow, replace the top cover after installing or
removing an option. Operating the server for extended periods of time (over 30
minutes) with the top cover removed might damage server components.
Chapter 2. Installing options
9
Removing the media-bay bezel
Media-bay bezel
To remove the media-bay bezel:
10
1.
Release the two tabs at the bottom edge of the media-bay bezel and pull the
bottom of the bezel slightly away from the server.
2.
Pull the media-bay bezel down to release the two tabs at the top edge of the bezel.
Store the bezel in a safe place.
IBM® xSeries 250: Installation Guide
Installing adapters
This section describes how to install hot-plug and non-hot-plug PCI adapters. Before
you continue with the adapter-installation procedure, review the following:
•
Slots 1 and 2 support 3.3 V and universal non-hot-plug PCI adapters only.
•
Slots 3 through 6 support 5.0V and universal PCI adapters.
Note: Universal PCI adapters support both 3.3V and 5.0V operation.
•
The system scans PCI slots 1 through 6 to assign system resources; then, the
system starts (boots) the PCI devices in the following order: processor and I/O
board devices, slots 1 and 2, and then slots 3 through 6.
•
You can install hot-plug PCI adapters in PCI slots 3 through 6. You can also install
non-hot-plug PCI adapters in these slots.
Note: The illustrations in this document might differ slightly from your hardware.

Failure to do so might cause your system to lock up. Refer to your operating
system documentation.
•
When you handle static-sensitive devices, take precautions to avoid damage from
static electricity. For details on handling these devices, see “Handling staticsensitive devices” on page 8.
1.
Review the information in “Before you begin” on page 7 through “Handling
static-sensitive devices” on page 8.
2.
Remove the top cover (see “Removing the server top cover and bezel” on page 9).
3.
Determine which expansion slot you will use for the adapter.
Note: You can install hot-plug PCI adapters in PCI slots 3 through 6 only.
4.
Disable the selected PCI slot from your operating system. (Refer to the
documentation that comes with your operating system for information about
disabling a hot-plug PCI slot.) Disabling the PCI slot turns off the power light for
that PCI slot.

Cabling example for the ServeRAID adapter
You can install an optional IBM ServeRAID™ adapter in your server to control the
internal hot-swap hard-disk drives; that is, to enable you to configure the internal hotswap hard disk drives into disk arrays. Refer to your ServeRAID adapter option
documentation for additional information on:
•
Installing a ServeRAID adapter in your server
•
Connecting the SCSI cable to a ServeRAID adapter
•
ServeRAID adapters and controllers
Select the PCI slot where you want to install the ServeRAID adapter. Before you
install the ServeRAID adapter, verify that it is compatible with the PCI slot that you
selected. Some ServeRAID adapters are not compatible with PCI slots 1 and 2. See
“Installing adapters” on page 11 for additional information on PCI slots.
The following procedure describes the cable routing that is necessary when you install
a ServeRAID adapter. You can also cable a ServeRAID adapter to external hard disk
drives.
Notes:
1.
The illustrations in this document might differ slightly from your hardware.
2.
Refer to the documentation that comes with your adapter for any cabling
instructions.
3.
Cable identifiers are printed on the cables that come with your server and
options. Use these identifiers to connect the cables to the correct connectors. For
example, the hard disk drive cables are labeled "HDD".
To cable the ServeRAID adapter:
1.
Determine the number of SCSI channels that you want to use on the ServeRAID
adapter. If you are connecting to more than two SCSI channels, you might need to
purchase additional SCSI cables. Consult your IBM marketing representative or
reseller for additional information on the number and types of cables that your
server configuration requires.
As shipped, your server comes with two SCSI cables attached to the SCSI
backplane (see “Using the LVD SCSI backplane” on page 24 for details):
•
One end of the first SCSI cable is attached to the SCSI channel A connector on
the SCSI backplane, and the other end is attached to the power backplane.
•
One end of the second SCSI cable is attached to the SCSI channel B connector
on the SCSI backplane. The other end of this cable is folded and restrained
with a clamp.
If you want to connect all of the hot-swap hard disk drives to one channel, you
must install an optional SCSI repeater card as described in “Installing a SCSI
repeater card” on page 25.

Installing memory options
Before you install memory, review the following:
•
All the DIMMs installed in each set must be the same size and speed, but all the
sets do not have to contain DIMMs of the same size and speed.
•
The memory board contains 16 DIMM connectors and supports 4-way memory
interleaving.
•
Install only 3.3 V, 168-pin, 8-byte, registered DIMMs. Only 100 MHz, 72-bit,
registered, synchronous, error correcting code (ECC), SDRAM configuration
DIMM memory is supported for the 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB and 1 GB (when
available) DIMMs.
Note: If you install 64 MB DIMMs, they will not support the Chipkill memory
function.
•
If you install 4 GB of memory, some of the memory is reserved for system
resources. The amount reserved for system resources depends on the
configuration of the server.
•
If you install 16 GB of memory, the Configuration/Setup Utility will display the
memory that is usable by the network operating system. This amount of memory
might differ from the amount of memory that you have installed.
•
Installing or removing DIMMs changes the configuration information in the
server. Therefore, after installing or removing a DIMM, you must save the new
configuration information using the Configuration/Setup Utility program. See
the User’s Reference on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for more information.
•
Install the DIMMs in the order provided in Table 2.

Using the LVD SCSI backplane
Your server contains hardware that enables you to replace a failed hard disk drive
without turning off the server. Therefore, you have the advantage of continuing to
operate your system while a hard disk drive is removed or installed. These drives are
known as hot-swap drives. The hot-swap drives are attached to a hot-swap hard disk
drive backplane. The backplane is a printed circuit board behind the drive bays. For
more information on drive bays, refer to the User’s Reference on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD. For details on drive installation, see “Installing a drive in a hotswap bay” on page 31.
As shipped, the LVD SCSI hot-swap hard disk drive backplane supports a split, dualchannel configuration. You can install a maximum of 10 slim-high, hot-swap hard
disk drives. You can attach five drives to each half of the backplane. These drives must
be low voltage differential (LVD) hard disk drives that operate at 160 MB per second
or lower.
You can configure the channels on the SCSI backplane in one of two ways:
•
You can configure each SCSI channel (bus) independently. This is the standard
backplane configuration. In this configuration:
— The hard disk drives in the upper half of the backplane are attached to
channel A through a SCSI cable that comes attached to the SCSI backplane.
— The hard disk drives in the lower half of the backplane are attached to
channel B through a second optional SCSI cable. One end of this second SCSI
cable comes attached to the SCSI channel B connector on the backplane. The
other end of this cable is folded and restrained with a clamp.
When you are installing hot-swap hard disk drives in the standard backplane
configuration, attach the first five to channel A; then, attach the remainder to
channel B. Refer to the illustration in this section for the SCSI channel connector
locations.
•
You can choose to configure the SCSI backplane as a single 10-drive SCSI channel.
To do this, you must install an optional SCSI repeater card as described in
“Installing a SCSI repeater card” on page 25.
Notes:
24
1.
The LVD SCSI backplane is also known as the SCSI backplane or the hot-swap
hard disk drive backplane.
2.
Refer to the User’s Reference on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for the SCSI
identifiers (IDs) for the LVD SCSI backplane and the hot-swap hard disk drives
that are attached to SCSI channels A and B.
3.
Carefully route all cables so that they do not become damaged.
4.
Cable identifiers are printed on the cables that come with your server and
options. Use these identifiers to connect the cables to the correct connectors. For
example, the hard disk drive cables are labeled "HDD".
5.
For information on cabling options and using the LVD SCSI backplane, refer to
the documentation that comes with the option kit.

Installing a drive in a hot-swap bay
Your server supports 10 1-inch (26 mm) slim-high, 3.5-inch hot-swap hard disk drives
in the hot-swap bays. These drives must be LVD hard disk drives that operate at 160
MB per second or lower.
Note: Refer to the User’s Reference on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for
information on installing devices in the non-hot-swap bays.
Attention: If you are replacing a drive that is part of a RAID level 1 or RAID level 5
logical drive, ensure that you install the replacement drive in the correct bay. Failure
to replace the drives in their correct bays can result in loss of data.
Refer to the following illustration when installing a hot-swap drive. The server comes
with a gap filler installed at the top of the hot-swap hard disk drive bays. You cannot

On-site warranty service depending on the country where service is performed.
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,
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2001
55
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.
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.
56
ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent
its exchange;

2.
3.
obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
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
