IBM Xseries 345 8670 Maintenance Manual

Troubleshooting the Ethernet controller It contains information to help you solve the problem yourself or to provide helpful information to a service technician. It contains instructions to install, remove, and connect optional devices supported by your server. Server controls and indicators This section identifies the controls and indicators on the front and the back of your server. The illustrations in this document might differ slightly from your hardware.

Hard disk drive activity LED: Each of the hot-swap drives has a hard disk drive activity LED. When this green LED is flashing, the controller is accessing the drive. Hard disk drive status LED: Each hot-swap drive has a hard disk drive status LED. Ethernet 1 activity LED: Server power features This section contains information about how to properly turn your server on and off.

Turning on the server You can turn on the server in any of the following ways: Turning off the server Complete the following steps to manually turn off the server: See your operating system documentation for the proper procedure to shut down the operating system. The power-control button on the device and the power switch on the power When you use an administrator password, you can set, change, or delete both the administrator and power-on passwords and allow a power-on password to be changed by the user.

This limited access might include changing or deleting the power-on password. If the ServeRAID Manager program detects an unconfigured controller and ready drives, the program automatically starts the Configuration wizard, and a window similar to that shown in Figure 1 opens. To change the configuration, click Modify arrays. Click Apply; then, click Yes when asked if you want to apply the new configuration.

The configuration is saved in the controller and in the physical drives. From the list of ready drives, select the two drives you want to move to the array. Click Add selected drives to add the drives to the array. Complete the following steps, if you want to configure a hot-spare drive: To change the configuration, click Back.

To start the help system, either click Information about this window on the toolbar or select an item from the Help menu. Priority Packet prioritizes traffic based on priority filters.

These are parameters you assign to outgoing transmit packets. VLANs offer you the ability to group users and devices together into logical workgroups. This can simplify network administration when connecting clients to servers that are dispersed geographically across a building, campus, or enterprise network.


For intermittent problems, check the error log. Checkout procedure Follow the steps in this procedure to identify system problems.

Schedule maintenance for the system. Shut down all systems related to the cluster. Manua the storage test. Diagnostic tools overview The following tools are available to help manua, identify and resolve hardware-related problems: A single problem might cause several error messages.

When this occurs, work to correct the cause of the first error message. After you correct the cause of the first error message, the other error messages usually will not occur the next time you run the test. If your server does not have a hard disk drive, ignore any message that indicates ubm the BIOS is not installed.

Diagnostic programs and error messages The server diagnostic programs are stored in upgradeable read-only memory ROM on the system board. These programs are the primary method of testing the major components of your server. Failed This result occurs when the diagnostic test discovers an error.

User Aborted This result occurs when you stop the diagnostic test before it is complete. Not Applicable This result occurs when you specify a diagnostic test for a device that is not present.

If the diagnostic programs do not detect any hardware errors but the problem persists during normal server operations, a software error might be the cause. If you suspect a software problem, see the information that comes with the software package.

Viewing the test log When the tests are completed, you can view the test log by selecting Utility from the top of the screen and then selecting View Test Log. There is a dc power problem. The server supports a maximum of three PCI buses. See the documentation that comes with the system-management software for more information about the service processor. Check the adapter slots to locate the error LED next to the or C. An adapter in PCI slot 1, 2, 3, failing bus. Complete the following steps to recover the BIOS code: Turn off the server and disconnect all power cords and external cables; then, remove the server cover.

Power checkout Power problems can be difficult to solve. For example, a short circuit can exist anywhere on any of the power distribution buses. Usually a short circuit will cause the power subsystem to shut down because of an overcurrent condition. A general procedure for troubleshooting power problems is as follows: The integrated Ethernet controller might display messages from certain device drivers.

The latest information available concerning these messages will be made available at the IBM Support Web site at http: Hardware Maintenance Manual and Troubleshooting Guide Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.

System reliability considerations To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that: 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.


Major components of the xSeries Type server The following illustration shows the major components in your server. Component locations This section provides illustrations of the system-board and PCI riser-card component locations.

System-board option connectors The following illustration shows the location of the system-board connectors for user-installable options. System-board internal cable connectors The following illustration shows the internal cable connectors on the system board. System-board switches and jumpers The following illustration shows the location of the switch block SW2 on the system board. Table 7 describes the function for each switch on the switch block. Switches Switch Switch number Default value description Reserved.

When toggled to On, this switch forces the power on, overriding the power-on button. You might need to refer to this illustration when solving problems with the server. Removing the cover and bezel The following illustration shows how to remove the cover and bezel. You do not need to remove the bezel to install drives in the server.

Cover-release latch Bezel Complete the following steps to remove the server top cover: Working with adapters You can install up to five peripheral component interconnect PCI adapters in the connectors on the system board and PCI riser card. Use the ribbon cable that comes with the adapter to connect the adapter to the system management connector on the PCI riser-card.

Loosen the two captive screws to release the PCI riser-card assembly. Lift the assembly from the server. Place the assembly on a flat, level surface. Open the adapter retainer and slide the expansion-slot cover out of the server or PCI riser-card assembly.

When you install an adapter in the imb, be sure that it is completely and correctly seated in the connector. Incomplete insertion might cause damage to the system board or the adapter. PCI adapter Adapter retainer 9. If you removed the PCI riser-card assembly to install the adapter, press the PCI riser-card assembly firmly into the connector and tighten the two captive screws.

Complete the following steps to remove the PCI riser-card assembly from the server.


PCI riser-card assembly Guide tab 1. Loosen the captive screws from the PCI riser-card assembly. Expansion-slot covers must be installed on all empty slots. This maintains the electronic emissions characteristics of the system and ensures proper cooling of system components.

Install the low profile 2-U bracket on the adapter: Remove the adapter from the static-protective package. Set the adapter down on a nonconductive, static-protected surface place it component side up.
