Page 5: Table Of Contents Reliability, availability, and serviceability features Page 6 Hardware service and support Prima di installare questo prodotto, leggere le Informazioni sulla Sicurezza.
For example, if a caution statement begins with a number 1, translations for that caution statement appear in the IBM Safety Information book under statement 1. Be sure to read all caution and danger statements in this documentation before performing the instructions. To avoid a shock hazard: v Do not connect or disconnect any cables or perform installation, maintenance, or reconfiguration of this product during an electrical storm.
If your system has a module containing a lithium battery, replace it only with the same module type made by the same manufacturer.
Statement 5: CAUTION: The power control button on the device and the power switch on the power supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device. Hazardous voltage, current, and energy levels are present inside any component that has this label attached.
There are no serviceable parts inside these components. Page Chapter 1. Introduction If firmware and documentation updates are available, you can download them from the IBM Web site. The blade server might have features that are not described in the documentation that comes with the blade server, and the documentation might Page 14 Record information about the blade server in the following table.
You will need these numbers when you register the blade server with IBM. In addition to the documentation in this library, be sure to review the.
The Documentation Browser automatically detects the regional settings in use in your system and displays the documents in the language for that region if available.
Each statement is numbered for reference to the corresponding statement in the Safety Information document. Page Reliability, Availability, And Serviceability Features You can configure and monitor the power environment by using the management module. Reliability, availability, and serviceability features Three of the most important features in server design are reliability, availability, and serviceability RAS. Page Ibm Director Monitor the usage and performance of critical components, such as microprocessors, disks, and memory v Centrally manage individual or large groups of IBM and non-IBM x86 processor-based servers, desktop computers, workstations, and notebook computers on a variety of platforms IBM Director provides a comprehensive entry-level workgroup hardware manager.
Page Chapter 2. This starts an orderly shutdown of the operating system, if this feature is supported by the operating system. Page Control Panel Buttons And Leds — Through the management-module Web interface, you can also configure the management module to turn off the blade server. Information LED: When this amber LED is lit, it indicates that information about a system error in the blade server has been placed in the management-module event log. Installing Options When you are finished working on the blade server, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires.
Page System Reliability Guidelines System reliability guidelines To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that the following requirements are met: v Each microprocessor socket always contains either a microprocessor heat-sink filler or a microprocessor and heat sink.
If the blade server has only one microprocessor, it must be installed in microprocessor socket 1. The appearance of your BladeCenter unit might be different, see the documentation for your BladeCenter unit for additional information. Release handles open Attention The following illustration shows how to open the cover on a blade server.
Blade-cover release Blade-cover Page Removing An Expansion Unit Removing an expansion unit The following illustration shows how to remove an expansion unit from a blade server. Page Removing The Blade Server Bezel Assembly Removing the blade server bezel assembly To install certain options, you must first remove the blade server bezel assembly. The following illustration shows how to remove the bezel assembly. Bezel-assembly release both sides Control-panel cable Bezel Control-panel connector To remove the blade server bezel assembly, complete the following steps: 1.
Page 33 The following illustration shows how to install a SAS hard disk drive. The server supports two-way memory interleaving. However, for proper airflow, this socket must contain a microprocessor heat-sink filler, sometimes called a microprocessor baffle. Page 38 The following illustration shows how to install the second microprocessor on the system board. Heat sink Microprocessor 2 Microprocessor 1 and heat sink Microprocessor heat sink filler To install an additional microprocessor, complete the following steps: 1.
Page 39 Touch the static-protective package that contains the new microprocessor to any unpainted metal surface on the blade server or any unpainted metal surface on any other grounded rack component in the rack you are installing the microprocessor in for at least 2 seconds; then, remove the microprocessor from the package. Press firmly on the captive screws and tighten them with a screwdriver, alternating between screws until they are tight.
If possible, rotate each two full rotations at a time. Repeat until the screws are tight. Do not overtighten the screws by using excessive force. The following illustration shows how to install a small-form-factor expansion card. Touch the static-protective package that contains the expansion card to any unpainted metal surface on the BladeCenter unit or any unpainted metal surface on any other grounded rack component; then, remove the expansion card from the package.
Locate the expansion-card connectors and orient the expansion card. Page Installing An Expansion Unit 7. Orient the expansion-card and slide the slots at the back end of the card onto the pins on the expansion card standoff; then, gently pivot the card into the blade-expansion connector. Firmly press on the indicated locations to seat the expansion card. Note: For device-driver and configuration information to complete the installation of the expansion card, see the documentation that comes with the expansion card.
Page Completing The Installation 7. Orient the expansion unit as shown in the illustration. Lower the expansion unit so that the slots at the rear slide down onto the cover pins at the rear of the blade server. Close the expansion unit see the documentation for the expansion unit for information and instructions : a. Page Installing The Blade Server Bezel Assembly Installing the blade server bezel assembly The following illustration shows how to install the bezel assembly.
Bezel-assembly release both sides Control-panel cable Bezel Control-panel connector To install the blade server bezel assembly, complete the following steps: 1. Lower the cover so that the slots at the rear slide down onto the pins at the rear of the blade server, as shown in the illustration.
Before you close the cover, make sure that all components are installed and seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the blade server.
Page 49 4. Select the bay for the blade server; at least one blade bay is required. Notes: v When any blade server or option is in blade bays 7 through 14 in a BladeCenter unit or in blade bays 5 through 8 in a BladeCenter T unit , power modules must be present in all four power-module bays. Page Updating The Blade Server Configuration Updating the blade server configuration When the blade server starts for the first time after you add or remove an internal option, you might receive a message that the configuration has changed.
Page Chapter 4. Depending on the version of the BIOS, some menu choices might differ slightly from these descriptions. Page 53 Set Memory Configuration to Flat to disable memory mirroring and sparing. Chapter 4. Configuring the blade server Page Using Passwords — CPU Options Select this choice to disable the microprocessor cache or to set the microprocessor cache to use the write-back or write-through method. Write-back caching generally provides better system performance.
You can also select this choice to enable or disable hyper-threading and adjust microprocessor performance settings. The setup program provides a list of tasks that are required to set up the blade server. Page Typical Operating-System Installation If you have already configured the blade server hardware and you are not using the ServerGuide program to install the operating system, complete the following steps to download the latest operating-system installation instructions from the IBM Support Web page.
