Customers can contact their IBM representative, IBM Business Partner, the HelpCenter®, or refer to the IBM Sales Manual for information on the compatibility of hardware and software for xSeries servers. The Sales Manual is updated periodically as new features and options are announced that support these servers.

Limitations

  • The xSeries 200 server supports a maximum of 1.5 GB of system memory by adding a 512 MB PC133 ECC SDRAM RDIMM in each of the three DIMM slots. All supported system memory is addressable through direct memory access (DMA). This server supports 128 MB, 256 MB, and 512 MB 133 MHz, 72-bit ECC SDRAM unbuffered DIMMs. All supported DIMMs can coexist in the same system. Refer to the Planning Information section or our compatibility Web page for supported memory options.
  • The open 5.25-inch bay supports removable media devices, such as tape backup devices. It does not support HDD options.
  • Customers should use the version of ServerGuide that ships with the system, or a later version, to load software and drivers. Earlier versions of ServerGuide may not be compatible with the server.

Refer to the Software Requirements section for operating system limitations.

Planning Information

Customer Responsibilities

xSeries 200 Customer Setup: The xSeries 200 is designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with systems.

Standard EIDE Configurations: In xSeries 200 model using the EIDE interface for storage device attachment, a two-drop cable is used to attach the standard 20.4 GB EIDE HDD to one of the EIDE connectors. A second EIDE controller provides the interface for the IDE CD-ROM drive. A two-drop IDE cable connects the IDE controller to the IDE CD-ROM. Up to two additional EIDE or IDE devices can be installed (one off each controller).

Other Configuration Alternatives: A Netfinity® Two-Drop Internal SCSI Cable (36L9636) is optionally available to support installation of a non-LVD SCSI tape drive in configurations where the five drop cable is attached to an optional RAID controller. For configurations requiring an LVD cable, the optionally available Netfinity Media Bay Conversion Kit (10K2340) can be ordered.

External SCSI support can be obtained by installing an optional SCSI adapter or RAID controller and using appropriate external SCSI cabling.

Supported Memory Options: The following memory options are supported:

  • 128 MB 133 MHz ECC SDRAM Unbuffered DIMM (33L3081)
  • 256 MB 133 MHz ECC SDRAM Unbuffered DIMM (33L3083)
  • 512 MB 133 MHz ECC SDRAM Unbuffered DIMM (33L3085)

Rack Installations: The xSeries 200 can be converted to a rack-mounted unit by installing a 4Ux24D Tower-to-Rack Kit. The 4 U xSeries 200 can be installed in a 19-inch industry-standard rack such as:

  • NetBAY42 ER Cabinet
  • NetBAY42 SR Cabinet
  • NetBAY25 SR Cabinet

    If using a non-IBM rack, the cabinet must meet the EIA-310-D standards with a depth of at least 28 inches. Also, adequate space (approximately two inches for the front bezel and one inch for air flow) must be maintained from the slide assembly to the front door of the rack cabinet to allow sufficient space for the door to close and provide adequate air flow.

Cable Orders: The 10/100 Mbps, full-duplex, Ethernet PCI controller, standard with server, is connected directly to an RJ-45 connector. The RJ-45 connector provides a 10BaseT or 100Base-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 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 xSeries 200 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.

Packaging: One box containing System Unit Carton and Country Kit Carton

  • Keyboard with attached cable
  • Two-button mouse with attached cable
  • System unit power cord
  • xSeries 200 Installation Guide
  • ServerGuide and IBM Director

xSeries 200 system ships as a single package. The country kit carton is contained inside the top portion of the system unit carton.

Security, Auditability, and Control

Security and auditability features include:

  • Power-on password (secured boot).
  • A mechanical lock allowing the user to lock the system cover to prevent unauthorized personnel access to internal components of the server.
  • Selectable boot sequence preventing unauthorized installation of software or removal of data from the diskette drive.
  • Tie-down capability by utilizing a common U bolt attached to the back frame.
  • Operation without a keyboard and display are supported once the server is configured with the appropriate network operating system. This minimizes the risk of unauthorized people tampering with the system software and configuration.

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

Non-IBM Parts Support

Warranty Service: IBM is now shipping IBM machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts, parts with an IBM FRU label, are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty Service Upgrades and Maintenance Services: Under certain conditions, IBM Integrated Technology Services (ITS) services selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for PCD machines that are covered under a warranty service upgrade or maintenance services.

IBM Service will provide hardware problem determination on non-IBM parts (adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory, and so forth), installed within IBM systems covered under warranty service upgrade or maintenance services and provide the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge. If IBM has Technical Service Agreements (TSA) with the manufacturers of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing parts at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, the customers are responsible for sourcing the parts, and installation labor will be provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or maintenance services.
