    Bay configuration

    The System x3250 M2 server contains three or five drive bays. One bay contains the standard CD-ROM drive.

    • Two 3.5-inch, slim-high bays located side-by-side on the lower front section of the server support installation of various SATA or SAS HDDs.
    • Four 2.5-inch bays located in the lower front section supports SAS HDDs.

    Cabling

    • The System x3250 M2 server contains an integrated IDE controller cabled directly to the optical drive.
    • System x3250 M2 simple-swap SATA models contain a two-drop cable to support two HDDs.
    • System x3250 M2 hot-swap models contain a mini-SAS cable and a power interposal cable to support two or four hot-swap HDDs.

    Rack installations

    System x3250 M2 1 U, rack-drawer models can be installed in a 48-cm (19-in) rack cabinet such as the IBM 42U Standard Rack or IBM 25U Standard Rack.

    If you use a non-IBM rack, the cabinet must meet the EIA-310-D standards with a depth of at least 71 cm (28 in). 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.

    Power considerations

    The System x3250 M2 server includes a standard 351 W power supply. This power supply provides sufficient power to run the server fully configured with supported devices.

    Cable orders 

    The dual 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet controllers, standard with the System x3250 M2 server, are connected directly to independent RJ-45 connectors. The RJ-45 connectors provide a 10BaseT, 100Base-TX, or 1000Base-TX interface for connecting a 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 Mbps or more operation, category 5 or better cabling must be used.

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

    Installability   

    The System x3250 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.
