This UEFI provides instructions and interfaces designed to support the standard features of the x3650 M3 and to maintain compatibility with many current software programs.

For detailed information about IBM and non-IBM devices, adapters, soft- ware, and network operating systems supported with System x servers, visit

http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/

Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner, or refer to the IBM Sales Manual for information on the compatibility of hardware and software for System x servers. The Sales Manual is updated periodically as new features and options are announced that support these servers.

Limitations
  • The System x3650 M3 server contains a single, configurable serial port. It can be configured to be operating-system-controlled, service-processor-controlled, or shared between the two. You can set the configuration by UEFI configuration. The default configuration from the factory is in the shared position. In the shared position, the service processor controls the port until the operating system is running, then the operating system takes control. The service processor can regain control of the port for user-configured dial-out situations or if the operating system is not available, but operating system control cannot be reestablished without resetting the server.
  • To ensure proper air flow for cooling, the System x3650 M3 server requires a rack with a perforated door, such as the NetBAY42 SR or NetBAY25 SR. An alternative is to remove the front door of rack cabinets where the door panel is of solid construction.
  • Microprocessor upgrades must be of the same type and clock speed. Mixing microprocessors of different speeds or cache size is not supported.


Note: Refer to the Software requirements section for operating system limitations.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

The System x3650 M3 server is designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with each system.

Configuration information

Integrated RAID-1 configuration

There are two manufacturing instructions (MI) available to allow the user to set up a RAID-1 configuration.

The two instructions are:

  • Integrated Mirroring - Two HDDs required via Instruction 01R1356
  • Integrated Mirroring with HotSpare - Three HDDs required via Instruction 01R1357

Cabling - Standard non-RAID configurations

Cabling - Simple-swap non-RAID configuration contains cables supporting up to four simple-swap non-RAID SATA drives. It does not contains any backplane.

Rack installations

System x3650 M3 server 2U rack-drawer models are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 28-inch deep devices, such as the NetBAY42U ER and NetBAY42U SR. Installation into some of the older Netfinity® racks (9306900, 9306910, 9306200) requires a rack extension kit.

If a System x3650 M3 is mounted in a non-IBM rack, the rack must satisfy the following specifications:

  • The rack must meet EIA-310-D standards for mounting flanges and hole locations.
  • The front to rear distance of the mounting flanges must be between 698.5 mm - 762 mm (27.5 in - 30 in).
  • The thickness of the mounting flanges must be between 1.9 mm - 3.3 mm.
  • The mounting flanges must have either 7.1 mm (.28 in) diameter holes or 9.6 mm (.38 in) square holes on the standard EIA hole spacing.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 70 mm (2.76 in) between the front mounting flange and inside of the front door for appropriate cooling.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 157 mm (6.2 in) between the rear mounting flange and inside of the rear door to install the server and make space for cable management.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between the front and rear mounting flanges must be 467 mm (18.2 in) to accommodate the width of the server and the slide mounting brackets.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between each door and the mounting flanges must be 484 mm (19.1 in) to accommodate the slide mounting brackets.
  • The rack must include perforated front and rear doors and must not prevent the flow of cool air into or out of the rack.
  • The weight-handling capacity of the rack must be able to support the maximum rack configuration, including all servers, external cables, and PDUs.
  • The rack must provide proper stabilization so that the rack does not become unstable when servers are pulled out for service.

Power considerations

The System x3650 M3 server includes a standard 675-watt hot-swap power supply. This power supply supplies sufficient power to run the server.

Cable orders

Two 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the System x3650 M3 server, are connected directly to an independent RJ-45 connector. The RJ-45 connector provides a 10BaseT, 100Base-TX, and 1000Base-TX interface for connecting twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network. Cabling is not included with the server. To connect the Ethernet controller to a repeater or switch, use an unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100/1000 Mbps operation, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3, or better, cabling must be used.

There are no additional cabling requirements, other than for system power, keyboard, mouse, and monitor connections.

Installability

The System x3650 M3 server requires about 20 minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install an operating system, additional adapters, or features.

Security, auditability, and control

Security and auditability features include:

  • Power-on and privileged access password functions control access to the data and server setup program on the server.
  • Set unattended boot mode allows the system keyboard to be locked to all entries except the password and at the same time allows other computers on the network to access the system disk drive.
  • Selectable boot sequence can be used to prevent unauthorized installation of software or removal of data from the diskette drive.

The servers are intended to be installed in a rack and secured in a rack. It is a customer's responsibility to ensure that the server is secure to prevent sensitive data from being removed.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

IBM System x3650 M3

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM.

Warranty period

  • System Unit - Three years
  • Optional features - One year

Optional IBM features initially installed in an IBM machine carry the same warranty period as the machine. If installed after the initial machine installation, they carry the balance of the machine warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.

The following have been designated as consumables or supply items and are, therefore, not covered by this warranty:

  • System batteries
  • RAID batteries

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM Web site. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines On-site Service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country- and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive) Service and On-site Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service
