IBM eServer xSeries 382 Type 8834: Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides basic instructions for installing a limited number of hardware
options in your server. These instructions are intended for users who are
experienced with setting up IBM server hardware. If you need more detailed
instructions, see the Hardware Maintenance Manual and Troubleshooting Guide on
the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Attention: All components inside the server must be removed or replaced by a
service technician.
Installation guidelines
Before you begin installing options in your server, read the following information:
v Review the safety information beginning on page v and the guidelines in
“Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 8. This information will help you work
safely with your server and options.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and other devices that you will connect to the
server.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v You do not need to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap drives or
hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices. For servers with redundant power
(three power supplies), you do not need to turn off the server to install or replace
a hot-swap power supply.
v The blue color on components and labels identifies touch points, where you can
grip a component, move a latch, and so on.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/compat/.
System reliability guidelines
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that:
v Each of the hot-swap drive bays has a drive or a filler panel and electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) shield installed in it.
v Each of the two hot-swap power supply bays on the right has a power supply
installed in it. The third (left) power supply bay must have a power supply or filler
panel installed in it.
v For proper cooling and airflow, replace the server cover before turning on the
server. Operating the server for extended periods of time (over 30 minutes) with
the server cover removed might damage server components.
v After installing the server in a rack, make sure that space is available around the
server to enable the server cooling system to work properly. See the
documentation that comes with the rack for additional information.
v You have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.
v You have replaced a failed fan as soon as possible.
v For servers with redundant power (three power supplies), you have replaced a
hot-swap power supply as soon as possible. For servers with non-redundant
power (two power supplies), a power supply should not be removed while the
server is turned on.
v You replace a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of its removal.

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 electrostatic discharge, observe the following
precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you. Wearing an anti-static wrist strap attached to an unpainted metal part of the
server can provide some electrostatic discharge protection when handling server
components.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
v 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.
v 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, put it back into
its static-protective package. Do not place the device on your server cover or on
a metal surface.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces
indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

service technician.
See the Hardware Maintenance Manual and Troubleshooting Guide on the IBM
xSeries Documentation CD for adapter installation instructions. For a list of
supported options for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
Your server comes with adapter connectors or slots on a PCI riser that is connected
to the system board. You can install up to three additional optional adapters in
PCI-X slots 1 through 3 (PCI 1 through PCI 3).
The following notes describe the types of adapters that your server supports and
other information that you must consider when installing an adapter:
v Locate the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions in this section. If you need to change
the switch setting or jumper settings on the adapter, follow the instructions that
come with the adapter. Also, read the documentation that comes with your
operating system.
v The total power consumption of all adapters installed in the server must not
exceed 45 watts.
v You can install full-length adapters in expansion slots PCI 1, PCI 2 and PCI 3.
None of the expansion slots are hot-plug.
v The 64-bit PCI-X slots support 3.3 V signaling PCI or PCI-X adapters; they do
not support 5.0 V signaling adapters.
v The PCI bus configuration is as follows:
– The dual-channel integrated Ethernet controller is on PCI-X bus 2, channel A.
– The dual-channel integrated SCSI controller is on PCI-X bus 2, channel B.
– The 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X slot 3 is on PCI-X bus 1, channel A.
– The 64-bit, 100 MHz PCI-X slots 1 and 2 are on PCI-X bus 1, channel B.
v If you have not changed the default startup sequence, the server scans the PCI
devices in the following order: PCI slot 3, PCI slots 1 and 2; then, the
dual-channel integrated Ethernet controller and the dual-channel integrated SCSI
controller.

Installing internal drives
Your server comes with an EIDE DVD/CD-RW combo drive and one or two
hot-swap SCSI hard disk drives.
Drive bay 1
Drive bay 2
DVD/CDR/W drive
The electromagnetic interference (EMI) integrity and cooling of the server are
protected by having all bays and PCI slots covered or occupied. When you install a
drive or PCI adapter, save the EMC shield and filler panel from the bay or the PCI
adapter slot cover in the event you later remove the option.
For a complete list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
Your server supports a maximum of two 1-inch (26 mm) slim-high, 3.5-inch,
hot-swap hard disk drives in the standard hot-swap bays. The hot-swap bays are
next to each other on the front of the server, and can be accessed without removing
the bezel. All hot-swap drives being used in the server should have the same speed
rating; mixing speed ratings will cause all drives to operate at the lower speed. You
do not have to turn off the server to install hot-swap drives in the hot-swap drive
bays. However, you must turn off the server when performing any steps that involve
installing or removing cables.
The following illustration shows how to install a hot-swap hard disk drive.

Complete the following steps to install a drive in a hot-swap bay.
Attention: To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the server for more
than 10 minutes without either a drive or a filler panel installed in each hot-swap
drive bay.
1. Review the “Installation guidelines” on page 7, and “Handling static-sensitive
devices” on page 8.
2. Remove the filler panel from the empty hot-swap bay by inserting your finger
into the depression at the left side of the filler panel and pulling it away from the
server.
3. Install the hard disk drive in the hot-swap bay:
a. Ensure that the tray handle is open (that is, perpendicular to the drive).
b. Align the drive assembly with the guide rails in the bay.
c. Gently push the drive assembly into the bay until the drive stops.
d. Push the tray handle to the closed (locked) position.
e. Check the hard disk drive status indicator to verify that the hard disk drive is
operating properly.
When the amber hard disk drive status LED is lit continuously, it indicates
that the drive is faulty and needs to be replaced. When the green hard disk
drive activity LED is flashing, it indicates that the drive is being accessed.
4. If you are installing additional hot-swap hard disk drives, do so now.
5. If you have a power supply to install or remove, do so now; otherwise go to
“Completing the installation” on page 16.

Installing a memory module
Attention: All components inside the server must be removed or replaced by a
service technician.
See the Hardware Maintenance Manual and Troubleshooting Guide on the IBM
xSeries Documentation CD for memory installation instructions. For a list of
supported options for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
The amount of memory in your server can be increased by installing memory
modules. The following notes describe the types of dual inline memory modules
(DIMMs) that your server supports and other information that you must consider
when installing DIMMs:
v Your server supports industry-standard PC2100 double-data-rate (DDR) dual
inline memory modules (DIMMs). The system board contains eight DIMM
connectors and supports four-way memory interleaving.
v The DIMM options available for your server are 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and
2 GB. Your server supports a minimum of 1 GB and a maximum of 16 GB of
system memory.
v The amount of usable memory will be reduced depending on the system
configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system
resources. The BIOS will display the total amount of installed memory and the
amount of configured memory.
v Your server comes with one of the following memory configurations:
– Four 512 MB DIMMs (for a total of 2 GB) installed in DIMM 1 through DIMM 4
memory connectors. If you install additional DIMMs for this configuration,
install them as a matched set of four in DIMM connectors 5 through 8.
– Eight 512 MB DIMMs (for a total of 4 GB) installed in DIMM 1 through DIMM
8 memory connectors.
v DIMMs must be installed in matched sets of four. The first set of four DIMMs
installed in DIMM 1 through DIMM 4 memory connectors must be the same size,
speed, type, and technology. Compatible DIMMs from various manufacturers can
be mixed. If a second matched set of four DIMMs is installed in DIMM 5 through
DIMM 8 memory connectors, they do not have to be the same size, speed, type,
and technology as the DIMMs installed in DIMM 1 through DIMM 4 memory
connectors. However, the size, speed, type, and technology of the DIMMs
installed in DIMM 5 through DIMM 8 memory connectors must match each other.
v Install only 133 MHz (memory bus), 2.5 V, 184-pin, double-data-rate (DDR),
PC2100, registered synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) with
error correcting code (ECC) DIMMs. These DIMMs must be compatible with the
latest PC2100 SDRAM Registered DIMM specification. For a list of supported
options for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/compat/.
v Your server supports Chipkill™ memory if all DIMMs are type x4. The use of any
DIMMs that are not type x4 in your server disables Chipkill memory.
v When you restart the server after adding or removing a DIMM, the server
displays a message that the memory configuration has changed.

Your server has an integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities. This
dual-channel controller supports two independent, Ultra320 SCSI channels. The
secondary channel of the integrated SCSI controller is connected to the internal
SCSI backplane and controls up to two LVD hot-swap SCSI hard disk drives. This
controller has the following features:
v Double-transition clocking to achieve up to 320 MBps (megabytes per second)
data-transfer rates
v Domain name validation to negotiate compatible data-transfer speeds with each
device
v Cyclic-redundancy checking (CRC), instead of the usual parity checking, to
improve data reliability
v An active terminator for SCSI bus termination
22
IBM eServer xSeries 382 Type 8834: Installation Guide
Each SCSI device that is connected to a SCSI controller must have a unique SCSI
ID. This ID enables the SCSI controller to identify the device and ensure that
different devices on the same SCSI channel do not attempt to transfer data
simultaneously. SCSI devices that are connected to different SCSI channels can
have duplicate SCSI IDs.
The hot-swap-drive backplane controls the SCSI IDs for the internal hot-swap drive
bays. However, when you attach an external SCSI device, you must set a unique ID
for the device. See the information that comes with the device for instructions to set
its SCSI ID.
To select and order the correct cables for use with external devices, contact your
IBM marketing representative or authorized reseller. For information about the
maximum length of SCSI cable, see the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) SCSI standards on the ANSI Web site at http://www.ansi.org/. Adhering to
these standards will help to ensure that your server operates properly.
Universal Serial Bus connectors
There are two Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectors on the front of the server and
two on the rear of the server. Use a USB connector to connect a USB keyboard, a
USB pointing device, and other USB devices to your server. USB technology
transfers data at up to 12 Mb per second (Mbps) with a maximum of 127 devices
and a maximum signal distance of 5 meters (16 ft) per segment. Using Plug and
Play technology, USB devices are configured automatically. The following illustration
shows a USB connector.

Chapter 5. Configuring your server
The Resource CD provides device drivers, diagnostic programs, and utilities that
are specifically designed for your IBM server. Use this CD during the initial
installation of your server to configure basic hardware features and to simplify your
operating system installation.
You can use the following configuration programs to customize your server
hardware:
v Configuration/Setup Utility
This program is part of the basic input/output system (BIOS) code that comes
with your server. Use it to configure serial port assignments, view system
information, change startup options, set the date and time, and set the password.
For more information about how to start this utility, see “Using the
Configuration/Setup Utility program”.
v LSI Logic Configuration Utility
With the built-in LSI Logic Configuration Utility program, you can configure the
integrated SCSI controller and the devices that are attached to it. For information
about how to start this utility, see “Using the LSI Logic Configuration Utility
program” on page 31.
v ServeRAID Manager
The ServeRAID™ programs are on the IBM ServeRAID Support CD and are
available for download from http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/. If your server has a
ServeRAID controller installed, you must use the ServeRAID Configuration
program to define and configure your disk-array subsystem before you install
your operating system. See “Using ServeRAID Manager” on page 31 for more
information.
This section provides the instructions for starting the utility programs. See the
User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for detailed instructions for
using the configuration programs.
Using the Configuration/Setup Utility program
The Configuration/Setup Utility program is part of the BIOS code. You can use it to:
v Change the startup options
v Configure serial port assignments
v Set the date and time
v Set the password
If your server is already on, shut down the operating system, turn off the server,
and wait a few seconds until all in-use lights turn off. Then, restart the server.

Using the RAID configuration programs
Use the following programs to configure and manage RAID arrays. Be sure to use
these programs as described in this book:
v LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
Use the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program to:
– Perform a low-level format on a SCSI hard disk drive
– Set a SCSI device scan order
– View or change SCSI IDs for attached devices
– Set SCSI protocol parameters on SCSI hard disk drives
v ServeRAID Manager
Use the ServeRAID Manager program to:
– Configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID)
– Restore a SCSI hard disk drive to factory-default settings, erasing all data
from the disk
– View your RAID configuration and associated devices
– Monitor operation of your RAID controllers
The following notes provide information that you must consider when using the LSI
Logic Configuration Utility and the ServeRAID Manager programs to configure and
manage your arrays:
v The integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities in your server supports only
RAID level 1. Installing an optional ServeRAID controller provides additional
RAID levels.
v When you create a RAID 1 mirrored pair, all drives must be on the same
channel.
Hard disk capacities influence the way you create arrays. Drives in the array can
be of different capacities, but the RAID controller treats them as if they all have
the capacity of the smallest disk drive.
v To help ensure signal quality, do not mix drives with different speeds and data
rates.
v You can set up a mirror after the operating system is installed on the primary
drive only if you are using the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
You must ensure that the primary drive has the lower SCSI ID (for example 0).
v
Important: If you use the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities to
configure a RAID level 1 (mirrored) array after you install the
operating system, you will lose access to any data or applications
that were previously stored on the secondary physical drive of the
mirrored pair.
v To update the firmware and BIOS for an optional ServeRAID controller, you must
use the IBM ServeRAID Support CD that comes with ServeRAID option.
v If you install a different type of RAID controller in your server, use the
configuration method supplied with the RAID controller to view or change SCSI
settings for attached devices.

Appendix B. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-07
11/2002
Part 1 - General Terms
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. 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. 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. Nothing in this Statement of
Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be
waived or limited by contract.
What this Warranty Covers
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications
(“Specifications”) which are available on request. The warranty period for the
Machine starts on the original Date of Installation and is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or sales receipt is the Date of
Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise. 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. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the
country or region in which you purchased the Machine.
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. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES
APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO
THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
What this Warranty Does not Cover
This warranty does not cover the following:
v any software programs, whether pre-loaded or shipped with the Machine, or
installed subsequently;
v failure resulting from misuse (including but not limited to use of any Machine
capacity or capability, other than that authorized by IBM in writing), accident,
modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, or improper
maintenance by you;
v failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible; and
v any non-IBM products, including those that IBM may procure and provide with or
integrate into an IBM Machine at your request.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2003
49
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the
Machine or its parts.
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, is provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, contact
IBM or your reseller to obtain warranty service. If you do not register the Machine
with IBM, you may be required to present proof of purchase as evidence of your
entitlement to warranty service.
What IBM Will Do to Correct Problems
When you call for service, you must follow the problem determination and resolution
procedures that IBM specifies. A technician will attempt to make an initial diagnosis
of your problem and help you resolve it over the telephone.
The type of warranty service applicable to your Machine is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information.
You are responsible for downloading and installing designated Machine Code
(microcode, basic input/output system code (called “BIOS”), utility programs, device
drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM Machine) and other software updates
from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the
instructions that IBM provides.
If your problem can be resolved with a Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) (e.g.,
keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, hard disk drive and other easily replaceable
parts), IBM will ship these parts to you for replacement by you.
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and your
problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, through your application of
Machine Code or software updates, or with a CRU, IBM or your reseller, if approved
by IBM to provide warranty service, will either, at its discretion, 1) repair it to make it
function as warranted, or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent. If IBM is unable to do either, you may return the Machine to your place
of purchase and your money will be refunded.
IBM or your reseller will also manage and install selected engineering changes that
apply to the Machine.
Exchange of a Machine or Part
When the 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.
Your Additional Responsibilities
50
IBM eServer xSeries 382 Type 8834: Installation Guide
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 service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. backup or secure all programs, data, and funds contained in the Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit IBM to fulfill its obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in the Machine’s location.
4. (a) ensure all information about identified or identifiable individuals (Personal
Data) is deleted from the Machine (to the extent technically possible), (b) allow
IBM, your reseller or an IBM supplier to process on your behalf any remaining
Personal Data as IBM or your reseller considers necessary to fulfill its
obligations under this Statement of Limited Warranty (which may include
shipping the Machine for such processing to other IBM service locations around
the world), and (c) ensure that such processing complies with any laws
applicable to such Personal Data.
Limitation of Liability
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine only 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 are responsible for any of your confidential,
proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM
for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its
return.
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 of this item, the term “Machine” includes Machine Code and Licensed
Internal Code (“LIC”).
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, ITS SUPPLIERS OR RESELLERS
LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING EVEN IF INFORMED OF THEIR
POSSIBILITY: 1) THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES
(OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF,
OR DAMAGE TO, DATA; 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES
OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; OR 4) LOST
