Racks are marked in vertical increments of 1.
Each increment is referred to as a unit, or U. Two – provide redundant power Size 2 U: The baseboard management controller is also known as the service processor. Decrease system ivm by 0. Approximate heat manuual in British thermal units Btu per x34 Power consumption and heat output vary depending on the number and type of optional features installed and the power-management optional features in use. The declared sound-power levels indicate an upper limit, below which a large number of computers will operate.
Front view The following illustration shows the controls, LEDs, and connectors on the front of the server. Press these latches manal release the server from the rack.
Hard disk drive activity LED: On some server models, each hot-swap hard disk drive has an activity LED. When this LED is flashing, it indicates that the drive is in use. Hard disk drive status LED: On some server models, each hot-swap hard disk drive has a status LED. When this LED is z346, it indicates that the drive has failed.
When the LED is flashing rapidly three flashes per secondit indicates that the controller is identifying the drive. This panel contains controls, LEDs, and connectors. The following illustration shows the controls, LEDs, and connectors on the operator information panel.
Slide this latch to the left to access the light path diagnostics panel. When this LED is lit, it indicates that a system error has occurred.
An LED manua, the light path diagnostics panel is also lit to help isolate the error. When this LED is lit, it indicates that a noncritical event has occurred. Use this LED to visually locate the server among other servers.
Press this button to turn the server on and off manually. A power-control-button shield comes installed on the server to prevent the server from being turned off accidentally. When this LED is lit and not flashing, it indicates that the server is ib, on.

When this LED is flashing, it indicates that the server is turned off manjal still connected to an ac power source. If this LED is off, it does not mean that there is no electrical power in the server.
The LED might be burned out. Mnual remove all electrical power from the server, you must disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet. Connect a USB device to this connector. Press this button to release a diskette from the diskette drive.
Diskette drive activity LED: When this LED is lit, it indicates that the diskette drive ubm in use. The following illustration shows the connectors and LEDs on the rear of the server.
When these LEDs are lit, they indicate that the server is transmitting to or receiving signals from the Ethernet LAN that is connected to the Ethernet port. Use this connector to connect the server to a network. Use this connector to connect the server to a network for systems-management information control.
Connect the power cords to these connectors. During typical operation, both the ac and dc power LEDs are lit. Connect a SCSI device to this connector. Use either of these connectors to connect the server to an Integrated xseries Adapter IXA that is installed in the server. Connect USB devices to these connectors. Connect a monitor to this connector. Connect a 9-pin serial device to this connector. Server power features When the server is connected to an ac power source but is not turned on, the operating system does not run, and all core logic except for the service processor is shut down; however, the server can respond to requests from the service processor also called the baseboard management controllersuch as a remote request to turn on the server.

When 4 GB or more of memory physical or logical is installed, some memory is reserved for various system resources and might be unavailable to the operating system.
The amount of memory that is reserved for system resources depends on the operating system, the configuration of the server, and the configured PCI options. Turning off the server When you turn off the server and leave it connected to ac power, the server can respond to requests from the service processor, such as a remote request to turn on the server.
To remove all power from the server, you must disconnect it from the power source. Some operating systems require an orderly shutdown before you turn off the server. See your operating-system documentation for information about shutting down the operating system. 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.
The device also might have more than one power cord. To remove all electrical current from the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the mnual source. After an orderly shutdown of the operating system, the server will be turned off automatically. The latest information about these programs and the most recent device-driver files are available at The following configuration programs and capabilities come with the server: Use it to configure serial port assignments, change interrupt mmanual IRQ settings, change the startup-device sequence, set the date and time, and set passwords.
