Limitations

Memory

The x3850 M2 servers are shipped with up to 8 GB (8 X 1 GB) of memory. A maximum of up to 128 GB of system memory is supported by adding a 4GB PC2-5300 CL5 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM in each of the eight DIMM sockets. All supported system memory is addressable through direct memory access (DMA). This server supports 1 GB, 2 GB, and 4 GB 1.8 V, 240-pin, PC2-5300 ECC DDR-2 SDRAM RDIMMs. Supported DIMMs can coexist in the same server; however, memory DIMMs of the same capacity must be installed in matched pairs. Refer to the Planning information section or the IBM System x3850 M2 server Web page memory options.

The x3850 M2 has RAID 0 and 1 standard. The optional ServeRAID-MR10k SAS/SATA Controller provides additional RAID levels.

ServerGuide

Use the version of ServerGuide that is shipped with the system, or a later version, to load software and drivers. Earlier versions of ServerGuide may not be compatible with the server.

For the two-socket, and four-socket configurations, ServerGuide can help you:

  • Set up and configure the system
  • Set up and configure any ServeRAID adapters as well as the onboard SAS chipset
  • Perform™ an unattended install of Windows 2003 with SP1 integrated CD (32-bit only)

For the 16-socket configurations, the ServerGuide can help you:

  • Set up and configure the system
  • Set up and configure any ServeRAID adapters as well as the onboard SAS chipset

The ServerGuide cannot help you perform unattended Windows installations (32-bit).

5709 native support limitations

5709 support will not be native to RHEL5.0, and that network installs would be impacted until RHEL5.1, when native 5709 would be included in the bnx2 driver, which is shipping at the launch of the product. The software updates necessary will be released by the appropriate networking operating system.

Hot-swap limitations

  • Active-PCI-E currently is not supported by Linux versions that are shipping at the launch of the product. The software updates necessary will be released by the appropriate networking operating system.
  • PCI hot-plug support is limited in SLES9.
  • For Linux, multifunction adapters (those that use PCI bridges) are currently not supported.

Refer to the Software requirements section for operating system limitations.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities: x3850 M2 server and related options

The x3850 M2 server is designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with systems.

Configuration information

Bay configuration

The x3850 M2 server contains five customer-accessible drive bays on the front of the server. The top right bay is for the slim combo drive. Four unpopulated 2.5-inch, slim-high, hot-swap drive bays are located beneath this bay.

The IDE combo drive is cabled directly to the IDE port. The four hot-swap bays are connected to the integrated SAS SCSI controller through an integrated circuit.

Internal SCSI cabling

The x3850 M2 server contains a DASD backplane supporting four hot-swap, SCA-2-compliant drive bays. The x3850 M2 has RAID 0 and 1 standard. The optional ServeRAID-MR10k SAS/SATA Controller provides additional RAID levels.

Processor upgrades

The following processor upgrade option is supported:

  • Intel Xeon Processor E7210 — 2.40 GHz 2x4MB L2 Cache 1066MHz Intel Dual Core Processor Upgrade (44E4244)
  • Intel Xeon Processor E7320 — 2.13 GHz 2x2MB L2 Cache 1066MHz Intel Quad Core Processor Upgrade (44E4241)
  • Intel Xeon Processor E7330 — 2.40 GHz 2x3MB L2 Cache 1066MHz Intel Quad Core Processor Upgrade (44E4242)
  • Intel Xeon Processor X7350 — 2.93 GHz 2x4 MB L2 Cache 1066MHz Intel Quad Core Processor Upgrade (44E4243)

Memory support

The following memory options are supported:

  • 2 GB (2x1GB Kit) PC2-5300 CL5 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM (41Y2762)
  • 4 GB (2x2GB Kit) PC2-5300 CL5 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM (41Y2771)
  • 8 GB (2x4GB Kit) PC2-5300 CL5 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM (41Y2768)

The 256 MB XceL4v cache, in multi-chassis configurations, uses system memory for this function. The total system memory as seen by the operating system is reduced by 256 MB per chassis for configurations of more than four sockets.

PCI-E adapter installations

The x3850 M2 server contains PCI-E architecture. Seven 2.5Gb PCIE x8 I/O slots (two are hot-plug).

Rack installations

x3850 M2 4 U, rack-drawer models are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 26-inch deep devices, such as the NetBAY42 ER, NetBAY42 SR, NetBAY25 SR, or NetBAY11.

If using a non-IBM rack, the cabinet must meet the EIA-310-D standards with a depth of at least 71.1 cm (28 in). Also, adequate space (approximately 5 cm (2 in) for the front bezel and 2.5 cm (1 in) 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.

Power considerations

These x3850 M2 models include two standard 1440-watt, hot-swap power supplies which have redundancy for all configurations when powered at 200 to 240 V ac.

Cable orders: The 10/100/1000 Mbps full-duplex, Dual Ethernet PCI-E Controller is standard with the x3850 M2 server. The RJ-45 connectors provide a 10BaseT or 100/1000Base-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 a UTP cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100/1000 Mbps operation, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3, or better, cabling must be used.

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

Installability: The x3850 M2 server requires about 20 minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install an operating system, additional adapters, or features.

Security, auditability, and control

Security and auditability features include:

  • Power-on and privileged access password functions provide controls of who has access to the data and server setup program on the server.
  • A set unattended boot mode allows the system keyboard to be locked to all entries except the password and at the same time allows other computers on the network to access the system disk drive.
  • A selectable boot sequence can be used to prevent unauthorized installation of software or removal of data from the diskette drive.
  • Winbond Trusted Platform Module ver 1.2, TCG (Trusted Computing Group) compliant.

Limitations: The x3850 M2 server has no security intrusion detection; therefore, it should be installed in a rack environment that provides security through lockable doors or other security measures. It is a customer's responsibility to ensure that the server is secure to protect sensitive data.

The system supports integrity measurements. The TPM is TCG V1.2-compliant, and is ready for use with software purchased from third party TPM Ecosystem partners in compliance with the TPM v1.2 specification.

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

    Attn: Dept. JDJA/B203

Warranty period

  • Three years
  • Optional features — One year

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

Warranty service: If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM Web site. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. Service levels are response time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations, additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area, contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country and location specific information.

CRU service: IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. A CRU is designated as being either a Tier 1 or a Tier 2 CRU. Installation of a Tier 1 CRU is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU, at your request, you will be charged for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service specified below, on-site service.

Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next business day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, (1) return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and (2) you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.
