2.5

Expansion cards

The system motherboard comes with two PCI-X expansion slots, one slot installed with the PCI cage to support three full-length expansion cards.

2.5.1 Installing a low-profile expansion card

To install a low-profile expansion card:

1. Firmly hold the card by the edges and align the card connector to the PCI-X slot.

2. Push the card connector into the slot until it fits in place.

3. Secure the card bracket with a screw.

2.5.2 Installing a full-length expansion card

The full-length expansion cards are inside the PCI cage. If you wish to install full-length expansion cards, you need to remove the PCI cage from the chassis.

To install a full-length expansion card:

1. Disengage the PCI cage from the chassis by lifting the cage handle to about 45 o angle.

2. Firmly hold and lift the cage as shown to completely detach it from the chassis, then turn it over to access the power connector.

DO NOT lift the PCI cage too high to avoid pulling and breaking the power cable!

3. Disconnect the 4-pin power plug from the connector inside the cage.

Chapter 2: Hardware setup

4. Place the cage on a flat stable surface with the slot facing up, and prepare the card that you wish to install.

Internal view of PCI cage

Install PCI-X cards in the following order:

• first PCI-X card

• second PCI-X card

• third PCI-X card top slot (furthest from motherboard) middle slot bottom slot (nearest the motherboard)

Exceptions

1. Install a RAID card to the top slot to facilitate connection of SCSI cables.

2. Install a LAN card to the bottom slot for easy connection of LAN

(RJ-45) cables from the chassis rear panel.

5. Remove the metal cover opposite the PCI-X slot that you wish to use, then install a PCI-X card as shown. The card golden connectors should match the notches on the slot.

6. Firmly push down the card until it is completely seated on the slot.

7. Secure the card bracket with a screw.

8. Connect cable(s) to the card, if applicable.

Repeat steps 5 to 8 if you wish to install other PCI-X cards.

9. Re-connect the 4-pin power plug to the connector inside the cage.

When re-connecting the power plug, place the PCI cage close enough to avoid pulling the power cable.

10. Before re-installing the PCI cage into the chassis, check that all cables on the PCI cage bay are properly connected and routed.

11. Take note of the two pegs on the

PCI cage bay. These pegs should match the holes on the cage to make sure it fits in place.

2-20 Chapter 2: Hardware setup

12. Position the PCI cage into the bay making sure that the pegs go into the holes on the front of the cage, and the dents on the rear part match those on the chassis.

13. Match and push the cage card connector into the PCI-X slot

(PCI-X2) until the PCI cage fits in place.

14. Ensure that the PCI cage card golden connectors completely fit the slot.

If properly installed, the top of the

PCI cage aligns with the top edge of the rear panel.

2.5.3 Configuring an expansion card

After installing the expansion card, configure the it by adjusting the software settings.

1. Turn on the system and change the necessary BIOS settings, if any.

See Chapter 5 for information on BIOS setup.

2. Assign an IRQ to the card. Refer to the following tables.

3. Install the software drivers for the expansion card.

When using PCI cards on shared slots, ensure that the drivers support

“Share IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments.

Otherwise, conflicts will arise between the two PCI groups, making the system unstable and the card inoperable.

Cable connections

The bundled system cables are pre-connected before shipment. You do not need to disconnect these cables unless you will remove preinstalled components to install additional devices.

Refer to this section when reconnecting cables to ensure correct cable connections.

Removable components

You may need to remove previously installed system components when installing or removing system devices, or when you need to replace defective components. This section tells how to remove the following components:

1. Hot-swap mid-fans

2. Rear fans

3. Power supply modules

4. Optical drive/floppy drive

5. Front panel LED/switch board

6. SCSI backplanes

2.7.1 Hot-swap mid-fans (80mm)

The fan LED lights up green in normal operation. If the LED color turns orange, the fan is faulty and should be replaced.

To remove an 80mm hot-swap fan:

1. Stand in front of the system and open the top cover.

2. Use the thumb and index finger of your right hand to flip up the right handle, and the thumb and index finger of your left hand to flip up the left handle of the fan that you wish to remove.

3. Firmly hold the handles and pull up the fan until it is disengaged from its connector.

Front panel

Avoid touching the fan blades while removing the fan. Spinning fan blades may cause injury!

2.7.2 Rear fans (60mm)

To uninstall the rear fans:

1. Press the rear fan cage levers, two on each side and two on the bottom.

2. Pull the fan cage from the chassis.

2.7.3 Power supply modules

The barebone system ships with one power supply module. You may purchase a second power supply module for redundancy.

To uninstall a power supply module:

1. Locate the power supply modules on the rear panel, and select the module that you wish to remove.

2. Hold the module lever and press the latch on the inner side to release the module.

3. Firmly pull the lever to slide the power supply module out of the chassis.

The module lever bends down about half an inch as the power supply slides out.

4. Repeat steps 2 to 3 to remove the other module.

2-34 Chapter 2: Hardware setup

2.7.4 Slim optical and floppy drives

To uninstall the optical floppy drives:

1. Disconnect the power and signal cables connected to the rear of the drives.

2. Loosen the thumbscrew that secures the drive bracket to the chassis. The optical drive is attached to the top of the bracket, and the floppy drive to bottom.

3. Slide the drive bracket toward the

SCSI backplanes to release it from the chassis, then carefully pull it out of the drive bay.

2.7.5 Front panel LED and switch board

To uninstall the front panel and swtich board:

1. Disconnect all cables connected to the rear of the board.

2. Remove the three screws the secure the board to the chassis.

3. Carefully remove the board out of the chassis.

Rear side

When removed, the LED and switch board appears as shown. The LEDs and switches on the board correspond to the LEDs and buttons on the system front panel.

2.7.6 SCSI backplanes

To uninstall a SCSI backplane:

1. Disconnect all cables connected to the rear of the SCSI backplane.

2. Carefully push the backplane upward to remove it from the chassis.

3. Repeat steps 1 to 2 to remove the other backplanes.

Rackmount rail kit items

Your rackmount rail kit package contains:

• one pair of rack rails (for the rack)

• two pairs of server rails (for the server)

* to accommodate different sizes of rack

• 12 pairs of nut-and-bolt type screws

Attaching the rails to the server

To attach the server rails:

1. Locate the hooks on the side of the chassis.

Side hooks

2. Position a server rail parallel to the side of the chassis, and match each of the five hooks to the holes on the rail.

3. Secure the server rail to the with a screw.

4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to attach the second server rail to the other side of the chassis.

3.3

Attaching the rack rails

To attach the rack rails:

1. Select two units of space (2U) on the rack where you wish to install the barebone server.

2. Remove the screws from the 2U space on the rack front.

3. Remove the screws from the corresponding 2U space on the rack rear.

4. Measure the depth of the rack to determine the length of the rack rails.

5. Take three pieces of rack rail, consisting of the middle piece, one front end (with stopper tab), and one rear end (without stopper tab). Assemble the rack rail to a length depending on the rack depth.

7. Measure the rack rail when assembled to make sure that it fits the rack.

8. Position the rack rail to the 2U space on the rack.

9. Secure the front end of the rail with two rack screws.

10. Secure the rear end of the rail with two rack screws.
