Cabling — Standard Non-RAID configurations

The xSeries 345 server contains a DASD backplane supporting six hot-swap, SCA-2-compliant drive bays. The backplane is connected to the one internal connector of the integrated Ultra320 SCSI controller through a 16-bit LVD SCSI cable. The other connector is for external use.

Note: Mixing Ultra320 drives with drives of any other speed rating causes them to run at Ultra160 speeds.

In configurations where an external SCSI device attachment is required, an external SCSI connector is available at rear of system.

Rack installations

xSeries 345 2 U rack-drawer models are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 28-inch deep devices, such as the NetBAY42U ER and NetBAY42U SR. Installation into some of the older Netfinity® racks (9306900, 9306910, 9306200) requires a rack extension kit.

If an xSeries 345 is mounted in a non-IBM rack, the rack must satisfy the following specifications:

  • The rack must meet EIA™-310-D standards for mounting flanges and hole locations.
  • The front to rear distance of the mounting flanges must be between 698.5 mm and 762 mm (27.5 and 30 inches).
  • The thickness of the mounting flanges must be between 1.9 to 3.3 mm (.07 to .13 in).
  • The mounting flanges must have either 7.1-mm (.28-in) diameter holes or 9.6-mm (.38-in) square holes on the standard EIA hole spacing.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 70 mm (2.76 in.) between the front mounting flange and inside of the front door for appropriate cooling.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 157 mm (6.2 in.) between the rear mounting flange and inside of the rear door to install the server and make space for cable management.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between the front and rear mounting flanges must be 467 mm (18.2 in.) to accommodate the width of the server and the slide mounting brackets.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between each door and the mounting flanges must be 484 mm (19.1 in.) to accommodate the slide mounting brackets.
  • The rack must include perforated front and rear doors and must not prevent the flow of cool air into or out of the rack.
  • The weight-handling capacity of the rack must be able to support the maximum rack configuration, including all servers, external cables, and PDUs.
  • The rack must provide proper stabilization so that the rack does not become unstable when servers are pulled out for service.

  • 2 GB PC2100 DDR CL2.5 ECC SDRAM RDIMM (33L5040)

Memory limitation Chipkill is the ability to keep the system running when there is one bad memory device. This function will not work with 256 MB DIMMs. The Chipkill function is active with 512 MB, or higher, DIMMs.

Power considerations

The xSeries 345 server includes a standard 350 W hot-swap power supply on the 2.67 GHz and 2.80 GHz models and 514 W hot-swap power supply on the 3.0 GHz model. These power supplies supply sufficient power to run the servers. Optional power supplies are available to support redundancy.

Cable orders: Two 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the xSeries 345 server, are connected directly to an independent RJ-45 connector. The RJ-45 connector provides a 10BaseT, 100Base-TX, and 1000Base-TX interface for connecting twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network. Cabling is not included with the server. To connect the Ethernet controller to a repeater or switch, use an unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100/1000 Mbps operation, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3, or better, cabling must be used.

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