Description

The Power 750 Express server supports a maximum of 32 DDR3 DIMM slots, eight per processor card. Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB and run at speeds of 1066 MHz. A system with four processor cards installed has a maximum memory of 512 GB. Also, the optional Active Memory Expansion can allow the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory. Innovative compression/decompression of memory content using processor cycles can allow memory expansion up to 100%. A server with a maximum of 512 GB can effectively be expanded up to 1 TB. This can enhance virtualization and server consolidation by allowing a partition to do significantly more work with the same physical amount of memory or a server to run more partitions and do more work with the same physical amount of memory.

The Power 750 Express server provides great I/O expandability. For example, with 12X-attached I/O drawers, you can have up to 50 PCI-X slots or up to 41 PCIe slots. This combination can provide over 100 LAN ports or over 72 WAN ports, or up to 576 disk drives (over 240 TB disk storage). Extensive quantities of externally attached storage and tape drives and libraries can also be attached.

The Power 750 Express system unit without I/O drawers can contain a maximum of either eight SFF SAS disks or eight SFF SAS SSDs, providing up to 2.4 TB. All disks and SSDs are direct dock and hot pluggable. The eight SAS bays can be split into two sets of four bays for additional AIX/Linux configuration flexibility. The system unit also contains a slimline DVD-RAM, plus a half-high media bay for an optional tape drive or removable disk drive.

Also available in the Power 750 system unit is a choice of quad gigabit or dual 10 Gb integrated host Ethernet adapters. These native ports can be selected at the time of initial order. Virtualization of these integrated Ethernet adapters is supported.

Other integrated features include:

  • Five expansion slots
    • Three PCIe x8 (two short-length, one full-length)
    • Two PCI-X DDR (full length)
    • Two GX slots for 12X I/O loop or 4X connections

  • Service Processor

  • Integrated SAS/SATA controller for disk/SSD/DVD in system unit
    • Optional 175 MB RAID write cache to augment disk/SSD performance and function

  • EnergyScale(TM) technology

  • Two system ports and three USB ports

IBM Editions

IBM Editions are available only as initial order.

If you order a Power 750 Express server IBM Edition as defined below, you can qualify for half the initial configuration's processor core activations at no addition charge.

The total memory (based on the number of cores) and the quantity/size of disk, SSD, Fibre Channel adapters, or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapters shipped with the server are the only features that determine if a customer is entitled to a processor activation at no additional charge.

When you purchase an IBM Edition, you can purchase an AIX, IBM i, or Linux operating system license, or you may choose to purchase the system with no operating system. The AIX, IBM i, or Linux operating system is processed via a feature number on AIX 5.3 or 6.1, IBM i 6.1.1, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. If you choose AIX 5.3 or 6.1 for your primary operating system, you can also order IBM i 6.1.1 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. The converse is true if you choose an IBM i or Linux subscription as your primary operating system.

These sample configurations can be changed as needed and still qualify for processor entitlements at no additional charge. However, selection of total memory or DASD/SSD/Fibre Channel/FCoE adapter quantities smaller than the totals defined as the minimums disqualifies the order as an IBM Edition and the no-charge processor activations are then removed.

Processor activations are only available to Solution Delivery Integration (SDIs) as MES orders.

Processor cards ordered separately after the initial order are not eligible for no-charge processor activations.

Edition minimum memory definition details:

A minimum of 4 GB memory per core is needed to qualify for the IBM Edition, except on the 6-core IBM Edition where there is a 32 GB minimum memory requirement. For example, a 6-core minimum is 32 GB, an 8-core minimum is 32 GB, and a 12-core minimum is 48 GB. There can be many different valid memory configurations that meet the minimum 4 GB per core requirement. For example:

  • 4-core (16 GB minimum) -- 2 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526)
    • Also, 2 x 16 GB (2 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)
    • Also, 1 x 32 GB (2 x 16 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4528)

  • 6-core (32 GB minimum) -- 4 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526)

Note: The 8 GB memory feature (#4526) is planned to be available on March 16, 2010.

Note: In the memory requirements, #EM08 can replace #4526, #EM16 can replace #4527, and #EM32 can replace #4528.

Note: You can also mix different size memory features on the same server and meet the minimum memory requirements for the IBM Edition benefit as long as at least 4 GB per core is attained. For example, the 1 x 16 GB memory feature (#4527) can replace the 2 x 8 GB feature (#4526). However, all memory features on an individual processor card must be identical.

Edition minimum Disk/SSD/Fibre Channel/FCoE definition details:

  • Minimum of: Two DASD, or two SSD, or two Fibre Channel adapters, or two FCoE adapters. You only need to meet one of this disk/SSD/FC/FCoE criteria. Partial criteria cannot be combined.

    • Two SAS disk drives -- any capacity drives located in the system unit, feature 5802 I/O drawer, or feature 5886 disk drawer qualify.

    • Two SAS SSDs -- drives located in the system unit, feature 5802 I/O drawer, or feature 5886 disk drawer qualify.

    • Two Fibre Channel adapters -- Either PCI-X or PCI-E adapters located in the system unit or 12X-attached I/O drawer.

    • Two Fibre Channel over Ethernet adapters -- Either PCI-X or PCI-E adapters located in the system unit or 12X-attached I/O drawer.

Multiple sample POWER7 IBM Edition configurations are provided in the IBM internal configurator tool, including:

  • Four 3.3 GHz 6-core processor card configurations (6-core, 12-core, 18-core, and 24-core)

  • Four 3.0 GHz 8-core processor card configurations (8-core, 16-core, 24-core, and 32-core)

  • Four 3.3 GHz 8-core processor card configurations (8-core, 16-core, 24-core, and 32-core)

  • Four 3.5 GHz 8-core processor card configurations 8-core, 16-core, 24-core, 32-core.

Dynamic logical partitioning

The dynamic logical partitioning (LPAR) function provides enhanced resource management for the Power 750 Express server. Dynamic LPAR allows available system resources to be quickly and easily configured across multiple logical partitions to meet the rapidly changing needs of your business.

Dynamic LPAR also allows you to add new system resources such as new hot-plug PCI adapters into your system's configuration without requiring a reboot. Without the optional PowerVM Standard Edition (#7794) or PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#7795) feature, as many as 32 LPARs are supported in a 32-core Power 750. If the PowerVM Standard or Enterprise Edition feature is installed in the system, a maximum of 10 dynamic LPARs for each physical processor can be defined, with a system maximum of 320 dynamic LPARs.

An HMC or IVM is required to manage POWER7 processor-based servers implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER7 processor-based servers can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER7 processor-based server, the HMC must be a CR3, or later, model rack-mount HMC or C05, or later, deskside HMC.

When IBM Systems Director is used to manage an HMC or if the HMC manages more than 254 partitions, the HMC should have 3 GB of RAM minimum and be CR3 model, or later, rack-mount or C06, or later, deskside.

PowerVM Editions (optional)

Three optional PowerVM Edition features are now available on the Power 750: PowerVM Express Edition, PowerVM Standard Edition, and PowerVM Enterprise Edition. These are managed using built-in Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) software or optionally through use of an HMC.

PowerVM Standard Edition (#7794) and PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#7795) allow customers to create partitions in units of less than 1 CPU (sub-CPU LPARs) and allow the same system I/O to be virtually added to these partitions. The optional features, available for a fee, also include a software component that provides cross-partition workload management.

PowerVM Standard and Enterprise Editions offer:

  • Micro-Partitioning (up to 10 partitions per processor, 160 per system)
  • Virtualized disk and optical devices (VIOS)
  • Automated CPU reconfiguration
  • Real-time partition configuration and load statistics
  • Support for dedicated and shared processor LPAR groups
  • Support for manual provisioning of resources

At initial order entry, selecting feature number 7994 or 7995 will result in Micro-Partitioning to be enabled during manufacture and the enabling software media and publications to be shipped to the customer. When ordering feature number 7994 or 7995 as an MES, an activation key will be posted on an IBM Web site, and the customer must retrieve it and install it on the system.

The IBM website is:

http://www-912.ibm.com/pod/pod

Other features of PowerVM Editions:

  • If any processors in a system have the Virtualization feature, all active processors must have it.

  • Once the Virtualization feature is installed in a system, it cannot be removed.

  • Virtual Ethernet and Virtual Storage are part of PowerVM Editions.

PowerVM Enterprise Edition also includes Live Partition Mobility, which allows for the movement of a logical partition from one POWER6 or POWER7 server to another with no application downtime, and Active Memory Sharing, which dynamically reallocates memory between running logical partitions on a server. Also available is PowerVM Express (#7793), designed for users looking for an introduction to more advanced virtualization features at a highly affordable price. With PowerVM Express and IVM, users can create up to three partitions on the server, leverage (VIOS), utilize Shared Dedicated Capacity to help optimize use of processor cycles, and even try out the Shared Processor Pool. With its intuitive browser-based interface, IVM is easy to use and helps reduce the time and effort required to manage virtual devices, processors, and partitions. An HMC is not required.

Note: PowerVM 2.1.2.11 with Fix Pack 22.1 and Service Pack 1, or later, and a supported AIX or Linux operating system level are minimum requirements for performing Live Partition Mobility functions on POWER7. Refer to the Software Requirements section for more information on minimum AIX and Linux OS levels.

Note: Active Memory Sharing is planned to be supported with the availability of SLES 11 SP1.

Customers can upgrade from PowerVM Express to either PowerVM Standard or PowerVM Enterprise, or they can upgrade from PowerVM Standard to PowerVM Enterprise.

By upgrading to PowerVM Standard or PowerVM Enterprise, users gain the ability to create up to 160 logical partitions on the Power System 750. Users also gain the ability to manage their PowerVM enabled machine with either an HMC or the Integrated Virtualization Manager.

By upgrading to PowerVM Enterprise, users can leverage Live Partition Mobility and Active Memory Sharing.

Active Memory Expansion (optional)

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative POWER7 technology that allows the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory maximum. Sophisticated compression/decompression of memory content can allow memory expansion up to 100%. This can allow a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can allow a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

Active Memory Expansion is available for partitions running AIX 6.1, or later. Technology Level 4 with SP2 is needed.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to compress/decompress the memory contents. The trade-off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies, depending on how compressible the memory content is, and it also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression/decompression. Tests in IBM laboratories using sample workloads showed excellent results for many workloads in terms of memory expansion per additional CPU utilized. Other test workloads had more modest results.

Clients have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off Active Memory Expansion. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the Active Memory Expansion function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning memory expansion on or off. Once turned on, there are monitoring capabilities in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX 6.1 TL4, allowing you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any Power Systems model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of Active Memory Expansion is available to provide more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. The trial can be requested using the Capacity on Demand Web page:

www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod/

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by a chargeable hardware feature (#4792), which can be ordered with the initial order of the server or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the server. An IPL is not required to enable the server. The key is specific to an individual server and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running Active Memory Expansion. Normal licensing requirements apply.

Power 750 Capacity BackUp (CBU) capability

(Applies to IBM i only)

The Power 750 systems' CBU designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred.

The CBU specify feature 0444 is available only as part of a new server purchase. Certain system prerequisites must be met and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server. Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 OLTP (Enterprise Enablement) entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine they were ordered for. When you register the association between your primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer.

After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system when the primary system is down or while the primary system processors are inactive. The CBU system can then better support failover and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system and may remain in use on the CBU system as long as the registered primary and CBU system are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

The primary system for a Power 750 (8233-E8B) server can be:

  • 9179-MHB
  • 9117-MMB
  • 8233-E8B
  • 9117-MMA
  • 9406-MMA
  • 9406-570
  • 8234-EMA
  • 8204-E8A
  • 9409-M50
  • 9406-550

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P20 or P30 software tier. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor license on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor license on the CBU server. An activated processor must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You can then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the minimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement you would like to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor license entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. These warning messages in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance. Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You can then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement.

For example, if you have a 6-core Power 750 as your primary system with two IBM i processor license entitlements (one above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer only one IBM i entitlement and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired. For CBU registration and further information, visit:

I/O drawer availability

Four 12X attached I/O drawers are supported on the Power 750, providing extensive capability to expand the overall server expandability and connectivity.

  • Feature 5802 provides PCIe slots and SSF SAS disk slots.
  • Feature 5877 provides PCIe slots.
  • Feature 5796 provides PCI-X slots.
  • The 7314-G30 provides PCI-X slots (supported but not orderable).

Three disk-only I/O drawers are also supported, providing large storage capacity and multiple partition support:

  • Feature 5886 EXP12S holds 3.5-inch SAS disk or SSD.
  • Feature 5786 EXP24 holds 3.5-inch SCSI disk (used for migrating existing SCSI drives).
  • The 7031-D24 holds 3.5-inch SCSI disk (supported but not orderable).

TotalStorage EXP24 Disk Drawer (#5786)(Supported only -- not orderable)

The TotalStorage EXP24 (#5786) is a 4 EIA unit drawer and mounts in a 19-inch rack. The front of the IBM TotalStorage EXP24 Ultra320 SCSI Expandable Storage Disk Enclosure has bays for up to 12 disk drives organized in two SCSI groups of up to six drives. The rear also has bays for up to 12 disk drives organized in two additional SCSI groups of up to six drives plus slots for the four SCSI interface cards. Each SCSI drive group can be connected by either a Single Bus Ultra320 SCSI Repeater Card (#5741) or a Dual Bus Ultra320 SCSI Repeater Card (#5742). This allows the EXP24 to be configured as four sets of six bays, two sets of 12 bays, or two sets of six bays plus one set of 12 bays.

The EXP24 feature 5786 has three cooling fans and two power supplies to provide redundant power and cooling. The SCSI disk drives contained in the EXP24 are controlled by PCI-X SCSI adapters connected to the EXP24 SCSI repeater cards via SCSI cables. The PCI-X adapters are located in the Power 750 system unit or in an attached I/O drawer with PCI-X slots.

The EXP24S SCSI Disk Drawer is an earlier technology drawer compared to the later SAS EXP12S drawer. It is used to house the older SCSI disk drives that are supported but no longer orderable.

The following feature number I/O drawers are available for order on the Power 750.

PCI-X DDR 12X Expansion Drawer (#5796)

The PCI-X DDR 12X Expansion Drawer (#5796) is a 4 EIA unit tall drawer and mounts in a 19-inch rack. Feature 5796 is 8.8 inches wide and takes up half the width of the 4 EIA rack space. Feature 5796 requires the use of a feature 7314 drawer-mounting enclosure. The 4 EIA tall enclosure can hold up to two feature 5796 drawers mounted side by side in the enclosure. The PCI-DDR 12X Expansion Drawer has six 64-bit, 3.3 V, PCI-X DDR slots running at 266 MHz that use blind-swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. The drawer includes redundant hot-plug power and cooling. The client must select one of the two available interface adapters for use in the feature 5796 drawer, either the Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter -- Long Run (#6457) or the Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter Short Run (#6446). The adapter selection is based on how close the host system or the next I/O drawer in the loop is physically located.

A maximum of four feature 5796 drawers can be placed on the same 12X loop. Mixing features 5802 or 5877 and 5796 on the same loop is not supported. Mixing feature 5796 and the 7314-G30 on the same loop is supported with a maximum of four drawers total per loop. A minimum configuration of two 12X cables (either SDR or DDR) and two ac power cables and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX slot via 12X SDR or DDR cables.

The Power 750 uses GX Dual-port 12X Channel Attach (#5609) or GX Dual- port 12X Channel Attach (#5616) to attach a feature 5796 12X I/O Drawer using SDR speed, no matter which GX adapter is used.

PCI-X DDR 12X Expansion Drawer (7314-G30) (supported, not orderable)

The 7314-G30 is equivalent to the feature 5796 described above with one key difference -- IBM i does not support this I/O drawer. Otherwise, it provides the same six PCI-X DDR slots per unit and has the same configuration rules/considerations as feature 5796.

12X I/O Drawer PCIe, SFF disk (#5802)

This feature provides a 4U high 19-inch I/O drawer containing 10 PCIe 8x I/O adapter slots and 18 SAS hot-swap SFF SAS disk bays, which can be used for either disk drives or SSDs. Using 146 GB disk drives, the feature 5802 provides up to 2.6 TB of storage.

The 18 disk bays can be organized either into one group of 18 bays (AIX/Linux), two groups of nine slots (AIX/IBM i/Linux), or four groups of four or five bays AIX/Linux). Selecting either one, two, or four groups of drive bays is done with a mode switch on the drawer.

A maximum of two feature 5802 drawers can be placed on the same 12X loop. Mixing feature 5802 and feature 5796 and the 7314-G30 on the same loop is not supported. Mixing feature 5802 and feature 5877 on the same loop is supported with a maximum of two drawers total per loop. The PCIe adapter slots use Gen 3 blind-swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. A minimum configuration of two 12X DDR cables and two ac power cables and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. 12X SDR cables are not supported. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX slot via 12X DDR cables (#1861/#1862/#1864/#1865).

The Power 750 uses GX Dual-port 12X Channel Attach (#5609) or GX Dual-port 12X Channel Attach (#5616) to attach a feature 5802 12X I/O Drawer. The feature 5609 provides the higher capacity bandwidth (DDR).

12X I/O Drawer PCIe, No disk (#5877)

This feature provides a 4U high 19-inch I/O drawer containing 10 PCIe 8x I/O adapter slots.

A maximum of two feature 5877 drawers can be placed on the same 12X loop. Mixing features 5877 and 5796/7314-G30 on the same loop is not supported. Mixing features 5802 and 5877 on the same loop is supported with a maximum of two drawers total per loop. The PCIe adapter slots use Gen 3 blind-swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. A minimum configuration of two 12X DDR cables and two ac power cables and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. 12X SDR cables are not supported. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX slot via 12X DDR cables (#1861/#1862/#1864/#1865).

The Power 750 uses GX Dual-port 12X Channel Attach (#5609) or GX Dual-port 12X Channel Attach (#5616) to attach a feature 5877 12X I/O Drawer. Feature 5609 provides the higher capacity bandwidth (DDR).

Note that conversions between a diskless feature 5877 and a feature 5802 with disk bays are not available.

EXP 12S SAS Drawer (#5886)

The EXP 12S SAS drawer (#5886) is a 2 EIA drawer and mounts in a 19 inch-rack. The drawer can hold either SAS disk drives or SSD. The EXP 12S SAS drawer has twelve 3.5-inch SAS disk bays with redundant data paths to each bay. The drawer supports redundant hot-plug power and cooling and redundant hot-swap SAS expanders (Enclosure Services Manager-ESM). Each ESM has an independent SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) diagnostic processor.

The SAS disk drives or SSD contained in the EXP12S are controlled by one or two PCIe or PCI-X SAS adapters connected to the EXP12S via SAS cables. The SAS cable will vary, depending upon the adapter being used, the operating system being used, and the protection desired.

  • The large cache PCI-X feature 5904/5908 uses a SAS Y cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X cable is used when a pair of adapters are used for controller redundancy.

  • The medium cache PCI-X feature 5902 and PCIe feature 5903 adapters are always paired and use a SAS X cable to attach the feature 5886 I/O drawer.

  • The zero cache PCI-X feature 5912 and PCIe feature 5901 use a SAS Y cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X cable is used for AIX/Linux environments when a pair of adapters are used for controller redundancy.

In all of the above configurations, all 12 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

A second EXP12S drawer can be attached to another drawer using two SAS EE cables, providing 24 SAS bays instead of 12 bays for the same SAS controller port. This is called cascading. In this configuration, all 24 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

The feature 5886 can also be directly attached to the SAS port on the rear of the Power 750, providing a very low cost disk storage solution. When used this way, the imbedded SAS controllers augmented by the 175 MB write cache RAID enabler feature 5679 in the system unit drive the disk drives in EXP12S. A second unit cannot be cascaded to a feature 5886 attached in this way.

19-inch racks

The Model 8233-E8B and its I/O drawers are designed to mount in the 25U 7014-S25 (#0555), 36U 7014-T00 (#0551), or the 42U 7014-T42 (#0553) rack. These racks are built to the 19-inch EIA standard. When you order a new 8233 system, you can also order the appropriate 7014 rack model with the system hardware on the same initial order. IBM is making the racks available as features of the 8233-E8B when you order additional I/O drawer hardware for an existing system (MES order). The rack feature number should be used if you want IBM to integrate the newly ordered I/O drawer in a 19-inch rack before shipping the MES order.

1.3-Meter Rack (#0555)

The 1.3-meter rack (#0555) is a 25 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0555 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-S25 rack. Order the feature 0555 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

1.8-Meter Rack (#0551)

The 1.8-meter rack (#0551) is a 36 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0551 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T00 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T00 must be ordered separately with the feature 0551. Order the feature 0551 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

2.0-Meter Rack (#0553)

The 2.0-meter rack (#0553) is a 42 EIA unit tall rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0553 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T42 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T42 must be ordered separately with the feature 0553. Order the feature 0553 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS) features

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. POWER7 uses lower voltage technology, improving reliability with stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest level of product quality.

The system cache and memory offer ECC (error checking and correcting) fault-tolerant features. ECC is designed to correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent memory failures and single-bit hard failures. With ECC, the likelihood of memory failures will be substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data in the event of a double-bit memory failure.

The AIX and IBM i operating systems provide disk drive mirroring and disk drive controller duplexing. The Linux operating system supports disk drive mirroring (RAID 1) through software, while other RAID protection schemes are provided via hardware RAID adapters.

The Journaled File System, also known as JFS or JFS2, helps maintain file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure. JFS, the recommended file system for 32-bit kernels, now supports extents on the Linux operating system. This feature is designed to substantially reduce or eliminate fragmentation. Its successor, JFS2, is the recommended file system for 64-bit kernels.

With 64-bit addressing, a maximum file system size of 32 TB and maximum file size of 16 TB, JFS2 is highly recommended for systems running the AIX operating system.

Memory error correction extensions

The memory has single-bit-error correction and double-bit-error detection ECC circuitry. The ECC code is also designed such that the failure of any one specific memory module within an ECC word by itself can be corrected absent any other fault.

Memory protection features include scrubbing to detect errors, a means to call for the deallocation of memory pages for a pattern of correctable errors detected, and signaling deallocation of a logical memory block when an error occurs that cannot be corrected by the ECC code.

Fault monitoring functions

  • When a POWER7 processor-based system is powered on, BIST and POST (power-on self-test) check processor, cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system. If a noncritical error is detected or if the errors occur in resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the restarting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are logged in the system nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).

  • Disk drive fault tracking is designed to alert the system administrator of an impending disk drive failure before it impacts customer operation.

Mutual surveillance

The Service Processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and also monitors the Hypervisor for termination. The Hypervisor monitors the Service Processor and will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the Service Processor. If the reset/reload does not correct the problem with the Service Processor, the Hypervisor will notify the operating system and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service.

Environmental monitoring functions

POWER7-based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions:

  • Temperature monitoring warns the system administrator of potential environmental-related problems by monitoring the air inlet temperature. When the inlet temperature rises above a warning threshold, the system initiates an orderly shutdown. When the temperature exceeds the critical level or if the temperature remains above the warning level for too long, the system will shut down immediately.

  • Fan speed is controlled by monitoring actual temperatures on critical components and adjusting accordingly. If internal component temperatures reach critical levels, the system will shut down immediately, regardless of fan speed. When a redundant fan fails, the system calls out the failing fan and continues running. When a nonredundant fan fails, the system shuts down immediately.

Availability enhancement functions

The POWER7 family of systems continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER6 processor functions

As in POWER6, the POWER7 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery for a number of core- related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. When an error is encountered in the core, the POWER7 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On IBM systems prior to POWER6, this error would have caused a checkstop.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation because the instruction will continue to fail. As in POWER6, POWER7 processors have the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. The entire process is transparent to the partition owning the failing instruction. These systems are designed to avoid a full system outage.

POWER7 single processor checkstopping

As in POWER6, POWER7 provides single processor checkstopping. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

Partition availability priority

Also available is the ability to assign availability priorities to partitions. If an alternate processor recovery event requires spare processor resources in order to protect a workload, when no other means of obtaining the spare resources is available, the system will determine which partition has the lowest priority and attempt to claim the needed resource. On a properly configured POWER7 processor-based server, this allows that capacity to be first obtained from, for example, a test partition instead of a financial accounting system.

POWER7 cache availability

The POWER processor-based line of servers continues to be at the fore- front of cache availability enhancements. The L3 cache is now integrated on the POWER7 processor. The POWER7 processor provides both L2 and L3 cache line delete functions.

Special uncorrectable error handling

Uncorrectable errors are difficult for any system to tolerate, although there are some situations where they can be shown to be irrelevant. For example, if an uncorrectable error occurs in cached data that will never again be read or where a fresh write of the data is imminent, it would be unwise to "protect" the user by forcing an immediate reboot.

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling was an IBM innovation introduced for POWER5 processors, where an uncorrectable error in memory or cache does not immediately cause the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a checkstop.

PCI extended error handling

PCI extended error handling (EEH) enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Predictive failure and dynamic component deallocation

Servers with POWER processors have long had the capability to perform predictive failure analysis on certain critical components such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit symptoms that would indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home about the failing part before the error is propagated system- wide. In many cases, the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. In the event that insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user- defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can automatically restart following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The purpose of serviceability is to repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate service cost (within budget objectives), while maintaining high customer satisfaction. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the customer, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes

  • Design for Customer Set Up (CSU), Customer Installed Features (CIF), and Customer Replaceable Units (CRU)

  • Error detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI)

  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC)

  • Converged service approach across multiple IBM server platforms

Service environments

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI). An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The POWER7 processor-based platforms support two main service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs is a supported option by the system. This is the default configuration for servers supporting logical partitions with dedicated or virtual I/O. In this case, all servers have at least one logical partition.

  • No HMC. There are two service strategies for non-HMC systems

    • Full system partition: A single partition owns all the server resources and only one operating system may be installed.

    • Partitioned system: In this configuration, the system can have more than one partition and can be running more than one operating system. In this environment, partitions are managed by the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM), which provides some of the functions provided by the HMC.

Service Interface

The Service Interface allows support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, interface, or terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the Service Interface allows the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available via the Service Interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system and its operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • LEDs
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC
  • Service Focal Point Lite on IVM

In the light path LED implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER7 system, an amber FRU fault LED will be illuminated, which will be rolled up to the system fault LED. The light path system pinpoints the exact part by turning on the amber FRU fault LED associated with the part to be replaced.

The system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs, and can also guide the servicer directly to the component by signaling (turning on solid) the system fault LED, enclosure fault LED, and the component FRU fault LED. The servicer can also use the identify function to blink the FRU-level LED. When this function is activated, a roll-up to the blue enclosure locate and system locate LEDs will occur. These LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the light path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU.

First Failure Data Capture and Error Data Analysis

First Failure Data Capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extending tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention.

First Failure Data Capture FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems such that they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.

  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.

  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's back-end system.

Automatic diagnostics

Because of the FFDC technology designed into IBM Servers, it is not necessary to perform re-create diagnostics for failures or require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boottime diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics

As the name implies, stand-alone or user-initiated diagnostics require user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Compact disk-based diagnostics
  • Keying in commands
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

The system will continue to support concurrent maintenance of power, cooling, PCI adapters, DASD, DVD, and firmware updates (when possible). The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file released with the firmware.

Service labels

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions, and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

Location diagrams

Location diagrams are strategically located on the system hardware, relating information regarding the placement of hardware components. Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components are installed such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies.

Remove/replace procedures

Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams, detailing how to remove/replace certain serviceable hardware components.

Arrows

Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

Packaging for service

The following service enhancements are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Terracotta colored touch points indicate that a component (FRU/CRU) can be concurrently maintained. Blue colored touch points delineate components that are not concurrently maintained -- those that require the system to be turned off for removal or repair.

  • Tool-less design: Selected IBM systems support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.

  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumb-screws, pop Nylatches** (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

Error Handling and Reporting

In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the operating system. Error Log Analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.

With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the amber system fault LED located on the system unit to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be set to blink by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the blue locate LED on the enclosure and at the system level will turn on solid. The amber system fault LED will be on solid when an error condition occurs.

On POWER7 processor-based servers, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, an ELA routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The Service Processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator. Once the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM Service organization. Customer contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with error log data related to the failure are sent to IBM Service.

Service Processor

The Service Processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

The Service Processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (Hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The Service Processors menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Call Home

Call Home refers to an automatic or manual call from a customer location to IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call Home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call Home can be done through HMC or non-HMC managed systems. While configuring Call Home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the Call Home feature can result in increased system availability. The Electronic Service Agent application can be configured for automated call home. Refer to the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronics Services

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services Web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution--dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM customers. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the customer's company strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

Integrated in the operating system in addition to the HMC, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and customer-perceived issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services Web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution between the customer and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM customers, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, go to the "Reference Guide" section at:

Benefits

Increased uptime: Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security Electronic Service Agent is secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. Electronic Service Agent securely transmits via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication between the customer and IBM only flows one way; activating Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Services Web site.

The Electronic Services Web portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This Web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from the system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Limitations

System

  • When an HMC is connected to the system, the integrated system ports are rendered nonfunctional. In this case, the customer must install an asynchronous adapter for serial port usage.

  • Integrated system ports are not supported under AIX or Linux when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system ports can be used, but not both.

  • The integrated system ports are supported for modem and asynch terminal connections. Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system ports do not support HACMP configurations.

Hardware management console (HMC) machine code

If attaching an HMC to a new server or adding function to an existing server that requires a firmware update, the HMC machine code may need to be updated.

To determine the HMC machine code level required for the firmware level on any server, go to the following Web page to access the Fix Level Recommendation Tool (FLRT) on or after the planned availability date for this product. FLRT will identify the correct HMC machine code for the selected system firmware level:

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/flrt/home

If a single HMC is attached to multiple servers, the HMC machine code level must be updated to the server with the most recent firmware level. All prior levels of server firmware are supported with the latest HMC machine code level.

Boot requirements

  • Selection of feature 0837 will indicate boot from SAN.

  • If IBM i (#2145) is selected as the primary operating system and SAN boot is not selected (#0837), one of the following Load/Source specify codes must be specified:

Power supply

  • The base machine must contain two AC (#7740) or two DC (#7708) power supplies.

Redundant fans

  • Redundant fans standard

Power cords

Two power cords are required. The DC power supply feature #7708 includes a power cord. A power cord must be ordered for each AC power supply (#7740) ordered.

The Power 750 requires 200-240 V for all configurations.

System memory

  • A minimum 8 GB or two DIMMs of memory is required on the Power 750 system.

  • Eight memory DIMM slots are on a processor card. The maximum system memory with one processor card is 128 GB. The maximum system memory is 512 GB with four processor cards.

  • Different system memory feature numbers may not be mixed on the same processor card. However, a system with more than one processor card may used different memory feature numbers on the same system.

  • Memory must be installed in groups of 1 feature (2 DIMMs), 2 features (4 DIMMs), or 4 features (8 DIMMs) per processor card. Installation of 3 features (6 DIMMs) is not permitted.

  • It is generally recommended that memory be installed evenly across all processor cards in the system. Balancing memory across the installed processor cards allows memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in the best possible performance for your configuration. However, balancing memory fairly evenly across multiple processor cards, compared to balancing memory exactly evenly typically has a very small performance difference.

Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

I/O drawers are connected to the adapters in the CEC with the following cables:

  • Data transfer cables:
    • 12X DDR cables for the feature 5802 and 5877 I/O drawers
    • 12X SDR or DDR cables for the feature 5796 and 7314-G30 I/O drawers

  • Power control cables

12X I/O drawer cable connections are always made in loops to help protect against a single point-of-failure resulting from an open, missing, or disconnected cable. A system with nonlooped configurations could experience degraded performance and serviceability. If a nonloop connection is detected, a problem is reported.

The first 12X I/O drawer attached in any I/O drawer loop requires two data transfer cables. Each additional drawer in the loop (up to the maximum allowed) requires one additional data transfer cable.

The first 12X I/O drawer attached to a system unit requires two power control cables. Each additional I/O drawer added to a system requires one additional power control cable. Each system has one power control loop. All I/O drawers attached to a system are included in the same power control loop. Power control cable loops are different in this regard from data transfer cable loops.

Dual-Port 12X Adapter Options

Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter (#6446): Use the short run adapter for feature 5796 or 7314-G30 expansion I/O drawers located in close proximity to the host system or to other drawers in the I/O expansion loop. This adapter does not include signal repeaters.

Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter (#6457): Use the long run adapter for feature 5796 or 7314-G30 expansion I/O drawers located farther from the host system or other I/O drawers in the I/O expansion loop. This adapter includes signal repeaters to accommodate the longer cable lengths.

12X Cable Choice

Each feature 5796 or 7314-G30 12X drawer requires one Dual-Port 12X Channel Adapter, either Short Run (#6446) or Long Run (#6457). The choice of adapters is dependent on the distance to the next 12X Channel connection in the loop, either to another I/O drawer or the system unit. The following table identifies the supported cable lengths for each 12X Channel adapter. I/O drawers containing the Short Run adapter can be mixed in a single loop with I/O drawers containing the Long Run adapter. In this table, a "Yes" indicates that the 12X cable identified in that column can be used to connect the drawer configuration identified to the left. A "No" means it cannot be used. The 12X DDR or SDR cables can be used with the feature 5796 or 7314-G30.

    to system unit        No        Yes      Yes        Yes
 

Note: (1) The 0.6M and 1.5M 12X cables (#1829/#1830 or #1861/#1862) have very limited use due to their short length. They cannot be used to connect to a system drawer because of the short length. They are intended for use between two feature 5796 or 7314-G30 drawers mounted side by side in the same enclosure (#7314). They can also be used to connect between two modules located one beneath the other in a 19-inch rack.

Note: (2) It is possible in some limited configurations to use the 3.0 M, 12X cable (#1840 or #1865) to locate 5796 modules in adjacent racks. The cable length requires careful management of each drawer location within the rack. The best choice for connecting a feature 5796 or G30 I/O Drawer in an adjacent rack is the 8.0 M, 12X cable (#1834 or #1864).

Note: (3) The 8M 12X cable (#1834 or #1864) is intended for use when connecting between two modules that are located in adjacent racks. This cable may not be connected to the 12X Short Run adapter (#6446).

PCI card slots

The Power 750 has a maximum of five hot-plug slots.

  • Slot 1 is a PCIe x8 short-length slot. A GX++ slot shares this slot.
  • Slot 2 is a PCIe x8 short-length slot. A GX+ slot shares this slot.
  • Slot 3 is a PCIe x8 full-length slot.
  • Slots 4 and 5 are PCI-X DDR 266 MHz full-length slots.
  • All slots are hot pluggable except slots 1 and 2 when used as GX slots.

Note: Optional 12X GX+ and GX++ adapters are used for attaching I/O expansion drawers with PCI slots and, optionally, disk/SSD bays.

Graphics adapters

  • A graphics adapter, keyboard, and mouse are not required in the minimum configuration.

  • The maximum number of graphics adapters supported in the Power 750 is three. Not supported under IBM i.

I/O adapters

  • Integrated Virtual Ethernet feature (#5613, #5623, #5624), and the SAS RAID Enablement feature (#5679) are not plugged into a slot, leaving the slots available for PCI adapters or GX adapters.

  • Refer to Figure 2 for additional I/O adapter information.

  • The adapter installed in slot 1 or 2 must be short.

  • To install a GX++ adapter in the system, two or more processor cards are required.

RAID

There are multiple protection options for disk/SSD drives in the SAS SFF bays in Power 750 system unit or drives in 12X attached I/O drawers or drives in disk-only I/O drawers. Although protecting drives is always recommended, AIX/Linux users may choose to leave some or all drives unprotected at their own risk and IBM supports these configurations. IBM i configuration rules differ in this regard, and IBM supports IBM i partition configurations only when disk/SSD drives are protected.

This disk/SSD drive protection can be provided by AIX/IBM i/Linux software or by the disk/SSD hardware controllers. Mirroring of drives is provided by AIX/IBM i/Linux software. In addition, AIX/Linux supports controllers providing RAID 0, 5, 6, or 10. IBM i integrated storage management already provides striping so IBM i also supports controllers providing RAID 5 or 6. To further augment disk/SSD protection, hot spare capability can be used for protected drives. Specific hot spare prerequisites apply.

An integrated SAS Disk/SSD controller is provided in the Power 750 system unit. It is optionally augmented by a 175 MB write cache and RAID 5 and RAID 6 capability when feature 5679 is added to the configuration. Without feature 5679, the integrated controller supports system mirroring protection for AIX/IBM i/Linux and supports RAID 0 or 10 protection for AIX/Linux. Other disk/SSD controllers are provided as PCI adapters. PCI-X SCSI, PCI-X SAS, and PCIe SAS adapters are supported. PCI Controllers with and without write cache are supported. RAID 5 and RAID 6 on controllers with write cache are supported.

AIX/Linux can use disk drives formatted with 512 byte blocks when being mirrored by the operating system. These disk drives must be reformatted to 528 byte sectors when used in RAID arrays. Although a small percentage of the drive's capacity is lost, additional data protection such as ECC and bad block detection is gained in this reformatting. For example, a 300 GB disk drive when reformatted provides around 283 GB. IBM i always uses drives formatted to 528 byte. IBM Power SSDs are formatted to 528 byte.

RAID 0 (minimum two drives) provides striping without parity for performance, but does not offer any fault tolerance. In data striping, data is broken down into several smaller, equally sized pieces. Each piece is then written to or read from multiple drives. This process increases I/O bandwidth by simultaneously accessing multiple data paths. Because RAID-0 does not offer any redundancy, a single drive failure can result in the loss of all data in a striped set. This means that all of the data on all the drives could be lost if even a single drive fails.

Note that RAID 0 drives can be mirrored by software to provide protection.

RAID 5 (minimum three drives) uses block-level data striping with distributed parity. RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more drives. Fault tolerance is maintained by ensuring that the parity information for any given block of data is placed on a drive separate from those used to store the data itself. RAID 5 requires N+1 drives to accommodate this parity data, thus the available storage capacity for each array is reduced by one drive to provide protection.

RAID 6 (minimum four drives) uses block-level data striping with dual distributed parity, the same as RAID 5 except RAID 6 uses a second level of independently calculated and distributed parity information for additional fault tolerance. This extra fault tolerance provides data security in the event two drives fail before a drive can be replaced. RAID 6 requires N+2 drives to accommodate the additional parity data.

RAID 10 is RAID 0 plus redundancy. In this type of implementation, an array with an even number of drives is created with mirrored pairs of drives within the array. A RAID 0 stripe set of data is created across the mirrored pairs for performance and for redundancy.

If a protected drive fails, the failing drive can be removed from its hot-plug bay and the drive replaced while the server and partition continue to run. The contents can then be re-created while the system continues to run. Note that until the drive is both replaced and its contents re-created, the protection provided using just mirroring or RAID 10 is absent for that drive's now unmirrored paired drive. Similarly, the entire RAID 5 array is unprotected until the failed drive is replaced and re-created. RAID 6 and hot spare were designed to provide additional protection.

Feature Availability Matrix

The following feature availability matrix for MT 8233 uses the letter "A" to indicate features that are available and orderable on the specified models. "S" indicates a feature that is supported on the new model during a model conversion; these features will work on the new model, but additional quantities of these features cannot be ordered on the new model; they can only be removed. "N" indicates that the feature is not supported on the new model and must be removed during the model conversion. As additional features are announced, supported, or withdrawn, this list will be updated. Please check with your Marketing Representative for additional information.

        |E| A = AVAILABLE  S = SUPPORTED
        |8| N = NOT SUPPORTED, MUST BE REMOVED

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM Power Systems 8233 machine type.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.

(#0308) - Mirrored Level System Specify Code

This specify code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems, the marketing configurator will show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not included on the order to support IOA-level mirroring protection. #0308 causes all disk units to be placed into configurations capable of IOA-level mirroring. Each disk unit and its mirrored pair must be on a different disk controller.

Note that the load source disk unit in a new, preloaded system will be device-level mirrored (same protection as provided with feature #0040). This means that the load source is controlled by the first disk unit controller on the first system bus, and will be mirrored with a like disk unit that is also attached to the same first disk controller on the first system bus.

For upgrade orders, #0308 will cause the marketing configurator to show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not available to provide the capability to enable IOA-level mirrored protection for all DASD.

It is the client's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

Distances up to 500 meters running at 1 Gbps data rate, up to 300 meters running at 2 Gbps data rate, and 4 Gbps data rate up to 150 meters are supported between the adapter and an attaching device or switch. When used with IBM Fibre Channel storage switches supporting long-wave optics, distances up to 10 kilometers are capable running at either 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, or 4 Gbps data rates.

The 4 Gigabit Single-Port Fibre Channel PCI-X Adapter can be used to attach devices either directly, or by means of Fibre Channel Switches. If attaching a device or switch with a SC type fiber connector(s), use of an LC-SC 50 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2456) or a LC-SC 62.5 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2459) is required.

There are two maximum quantities for High Bandwidth adapters, one for performance, and one for connectivity. Adapter performance may be limited by bandwidth constraints in a network. To maximize High Bandwidth adapter performance in the server the performance maximum quantity should not be exceeded. In applications where the end-to-end network cannot sustain high performance and or connectivity is more important than overall bandwidth performance the performance maximum quantity can be exceeded up to the connectivity maximum quantity.

(#1912) - PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#1912) is a 64-bit 3.3-volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.). Each SCSI bus can only support external attach SCSI devices.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To utilize the 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices; however, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A 0.3-meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter.

Two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#1912) is a native boot adapter. The adapter also supports target mode.

Limitations:

  • The two external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 IBM Multi-Storage Tower Model 105.
  • The Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI nonRAID Adapter has ports that are capable at running at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s).
  • Attributes provided: Attachment of external SCSI devices only on Power7 Servers.
  • Attributes required: One available 3.3 volt PCI or PCI-X slot or PCI-X 2.0 DDR slot

(#5289) - 2 Port Async EIA-232 PCIe Adapter

Adapter provides connection for 2 asynchronous EIA-232 devices. Ports are programmable to support EIA-232 protocols, at a line speed of 128K bps. Two RJ45 connections are located on the rear of the adapter. To attach to devices using a 9-pin (DB9) connection, use an RJ45-to-DB9 converter. For convenience, one converter is included with this feature. One converter for each connector needing a DB9 connector is needed.

The converter cable shipped with the feature is a 10-pin RJ-45 approximately 30 cm or 1 foot in length. 10-pin is often used for DCE devices like modems. DTE devices may be able to use fewer pin connections. Multiple RJ-45 pin out options are used and sold across the industry. The #3930 feature provides an 8-pin RJ45-to-DB9 converter cable. If an addition 10-pin RJ45-to-DB9 connector like the cable provided with the adapter is desired, it is commonly available from multiple sources and identified as a serial cable with a Digi part number 76000239. It is also possible to look up the cable's pin out specifications and build your own cables.

Note: #5289 and # 5290 are physically and electrically identical adapters except for the type of PCIe slot used (full-high or low profile). Note also the 2-port #5289/5290 is functionally nearly identical to the 4-port #5785/5277 except for the number and type of connectors.

Limitation: As of 2012, IBM i does not support PPP protocol. Also IBM i only supports use on POWER7 and POWER7+ servers.

  • OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
  • M2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
  • OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables. The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.

    Cable   |  2.125 Gbps  |  4.25 Gbps  |  8.5 Gbps  |
    --------|--------------|-------------|------------|
    OM3     |.5m - 500m    |.5m - 380m   |.5m - 150m  |
    OM2     |.5m - 300m    |.5m - 150m   |.5m - 50m   |

(#5736) - PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of July 11, 2014)

The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5736) is a 64-bit 3.3-volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.). Each SCSI bus can only support external attach SCSI devices.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To utilize the 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices; however, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A 0.3-meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter.

Two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5736) is a native boot adapter. The adapter also supports target mode.

Feature #5736 and #5806 are physically identical cards with the same 571A CCIN. Different features are used to help IBM configurator tool understand whether or not an IOP is being used with the adapter. #5806 indicates an IOP is present.

Limitations:

  • The two external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 IBM Multi-Storage Tower Model 105.
  • The Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI nonRAID Adapter has ports that are capable at running at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s).

(#5805) - PCIe 380MB Cache Dual - x4 3Gb SAS RAID Adapter

The #5805 PCIe 380 MB Cache Dual - x4 3 Gb SAS RAID Adapter is a short, full high form factor adapter that supports the attachment of SAS disk and SAS solid state drives (SSD) using a pair of mini SAS 4x connectors. Write cache can provide an I/O performance boost even if RAID 5/6/10 is not used. From a high-level perspective, except for having a larger write cache, it is very similar to the feature 5902 PCI-X SAS adapter and provides a high-performance connection to SAS devices. Two of feature 5805 provides for mirrored write cache data and mirrored RAID parity footprints between the adapters for superior availability. Feature 5805 is installed in pairs, allowing for redundancy of the write cache. If the feature 5805 pairing is broken, then write cache is disabled. The #5805 can also be paired with a #5903 adapter. Feature 5805 supports SAS disk drives (HDD) and SAS-bay-based SSD located in a PCIe 12X I/O Drawer or drives located in an EXP12S Disk Drawer or EXP24 Disk Drawer. AIX/Linux formatted SAS drives can be attached, and RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 are supported. Similarly, IBM i RAID formatted HDD and SSD can also also be attached, and RAID 5 and RAID 6 is support. AIX, IBM i and Linux also support The #5805 is electronically identical to the #5903 and both the 5903 and 5805 use CCIN number is 574E. The #5805 adapter is slightly more narrow than the #5903 due to the placement of its cache batteries.

The controller supports a maximum of two #5887 EXP24S drawers, but can also support a #5886 I/O drawer in addition to the two #5887 providing a total of 60 SAS bays. It supports up to 6 drive slots in one POWER6 560/570/770 CEC drawers and up to three POWER6 560/570/770 drawers in the same server. With proper cabling and configuration, multiple wide ports are used to provide redundant paths to each dual port SAS disk or SSD. The adapter manages SAS path redundancy and path switching should a SAS drive failure occur. CCIN is 572F/575C.

The adapter provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 for AIX linux. Under IBM i OS, mirroring and data spreading is provided by the operating system and RAID 5 and RAID6 is provided by the adapter. #5904, #5906 and #5908 are all feature codes representing the same physical cards, but different feature codes are used to indicate if a blind swap cassette is used and its type. #5908 indicates a Gen-3 blind swap cassette used in enclosures such as the 19-inch #5790, 5796 or Power 570 CEC.

With the optional pairing of adapters, an even higher level of protection beyond, auxiliary cache is provided via a dual controller I/O configuration to protect against the failure of an entire adapter. In such a high availability I/O configuration, SAS X cables are used to attach #5886 EXP 12S/#5887 EXP24S Expansion Drawers and the 4th mini-SAS connector (top) is used with an adapter to adapter (AA) SAS CABLE, (3M #3681, 6M #3682), to directly connect the card sets. Paired adapters must reside on the same server/partition for IBM i, but can be in the same or separate servers/partitions for AIX/Linux.

(#5913) - PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb

The PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb (#5913) provides high performance HDD or SSD controller function using PCIe Gen2 technology. HDD and SSD can be either SFF or 3.5-inch drives (or both). A pair of adapters are required to provide mirrored write cache data and adapter redundancy. Integrated flash memory provides protection of the write cache without batteries in case of power failure.

The #5913 provides three Mini-SAS HD (high density) connectors for the attachment of SAS drives located in the #5887 EXP24S, #5886 EPX12S, or #5802/5803 12X PCIe I/O drawers. X , YO or AT SAS cables with HD connectors are used to attach to these drawers. A max of 3 EXP24S or 6 EXP12S can be attached. If controlling drives in a #5802/ 5803 the #5913 pairs must be located in that #5802/5803. An AA SAS cable with HD connectors is attached to the #5913 pair to communicate status and cache content information and is required unless all three ports are being used to attach I/O drawers.

The #5913 provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 for AIX and Linux and VIOS. The adapter provides RAID 5 and RAID 6 for IBM i. IBM i provides both OS mirroring and data spreading. AIX/Linux/VIOS provide OS mirroring (LVM). The adapter's CCIN is 57B5.

(#EH10) - 387GB SFF-2 SSD converted for AIX/Linux

This special feature code is used when "converting" a four-pack of 387GB SSD which are mounted on a SFF-1 carrier/trays to four features all mounted on SFF-2 carrier/trays. SFF-2 carrier/trays can be placed in an EXP24S I/O Drawer. A special feature code was created because a) the originally announced 387GB SFF-2 feature code is either withdrawn from marketing or b) the server on which it was initially ordered is withdrawn from marketing and the four-pack is an "iniital only" orderable feature. IBM ordering/configuring systems don't support converting to a withdrawn features or initial only features. It was decided to use the same approach for all 4-pack features for consistency even if all feature codes for your specific model are still available. This is ordered using one "remove" and four "adds" in the IBM ordering system and does not use the more common one-to-one feature conversion. IBM ships one SFF-2 carrier/tray with each #EH10 feature ordered. SFF-2 #EH10 is equivalent to one SFF-2 #ES0C. Use when converting fom SFF-1 four pack #ESRA.

It identifies a specific high availability configuration supported by AIX or Linux which has one #ESA3 on one system and the paired #ESA3 located on a second system. IBM i does not support paired adapter on different servers.

SAS RAID adapter firmware disables write cache until a second SAS RAID adapter is recognized.

Every #EJS1 requires a 6Gb/s SAS RAID adapter (#ESA3) on both this server and on another server that will pair up the SAS RAID adapter and enable the onboard caches to function.

Limitation

  • Cannot be used with #5913
  • Cannot be used with #5924
  • Attributes provided: SAS RAID adapter firmware disables write cache until a second SAS RAID adapter is recognized.
  • Attributes required: Every #ESA3 requires a 6Gb/s SAS RAID adapter CR (#ESA3) on both this server and on another server that will pair up the SAS RAID adapter and enable the onboard caches to function.

(#EJS2) - Specify Mode-2 1(2)ESA3 for EXP24S (#5887/#EL1S)

This feature does not order or ship any hardware, but indicates to IBM config tools and to IBM Manufacturing that in this configuration one EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887/#EL1S) should be configured in Mode 2 and be using two (one pair) of PCIe2 1.8GB RAID SAS adapter (#ESA3 ) and one X SAS Cable.

This indicates a "partial" configuration where there are not enough adapters/cables to run all the SAS bays in the EXP24S. If additional adapters/cables are MES added later to support the rest of the SAS bays, then this specify code should be removed and the appropriate specify feature added to help IBM config tools understand the expanded usage, probably specify feature #EJS4.

(#EN27) - 2 Port Async EIA-232 PCIe Adapter

Adapter provides connection for 2 asynchronous EIA-232 devices. Ports are programmable to support EIA-232 protocols, at a line speed of 128K bps. Two RJ45 connections are located on the rear of the adapter. To attach to devices using a 9-pin (DB9) connection, use an RJ45-to-DB9 converter. For convenience, one converter is included with this feature. One converter for each connector needing a DB9 connector is needed.

The converter cable shipped with the feature is a 10-pin RJ-45 approximately 30 cm or 1 foot in length. 10-pin is often used for DCE devices like modems. DTE devices may be able to use fewer pin connections. Multiple RJ-45 pin out options are used and sold across the industry. The #3930 feature provides an 8-pin RJ45-to-DB9 converter cable. If an addition 10-pin RJ45-to-DB9 connector like the cable provided with the adapter is desired, it is commonly available from multiple sources and identified as a serial cable with a Digi part number 76000239. It is also possible to look up the cable's pin out specifications and build your own cables.

Note #EN27 and # EN28 are physically and electrically identical adapters, except for the type of PCIe slot used (full-high or low profile).

(#ESA3) - PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb CR

The PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb provides high performance HDD or SSD controller function using PCIe Gen2 technology. HDD and SSD can be either SFF or 3.5-inch drives (or both). A pair of #ESA3 adapters are required to provide mirrored write cache data and adapter redundancy. Integrated flash memory provides protection of the write cache without batteries in case of power failure.

The #ESA3 provides three Mini-SAS HD (high density) connectors for the attachment of SAS drives located in the #5887 EXP24S, #5886 EPX12S, or #5802 12X PCIe I/O drawers. X, YO or AT SAS cables with HD connectors are used to attach to these drawers. A max of 3 EXP24S or 6 EXP12S can be attached. If controlling drives in a #5802, at least one of #ESA3 pair must be located in that #5802. If NOT controlling drives in a #5802, the adapters can be placed in any PCIe slot which supports their use and the PCIe slots can be in different enclosures. An AA SAS cable with HD is attached to the #ESA3 pair to communicate status and cache content information and is required unless all three ports are being used to attach I/O drawers.

The #ESA3 provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 for AIX and Linux and VIOS. The adapter provides RAID 5 and RAID 6 for IBM i. IBM i provides both OS mirroring and data spreading. AIX/Linux/VIOS provide OS mirroring (LVM). The CCIN = 57BB for this adapter.

#ESA3 is a refreshed version of the #5913 PCIe2 adapter offering the same function and performance, but with lower energy consumption.
