Overview
Bottom rule

The IBM® Power 760 server (9109-RMD) supports up to four POWER7+ processor DCMs. Each of the four processor DCMs is a 0/12-core CUoD DCM packaged with 2 x 6-core chips. All 0/12-core CUoD processor DCMs are either 3.1 GHz or 3.4 GHz mounted on a dedicated card with a granularity of one DCM in a 19-inch rack-mount, 5U (EIA units) drawer configuration. Each POWER7+ processor DCM is a 64-bit, 0/12-core CUoD processor, packaged on a dedicated card with a maximum of 64 DDR3 DIMMs, 10 MB of L3 cache per core, and 256 KB of L2 cache per core. A fully populated Power 760 server with four DCMs has a minimum of eight cores activated and up to a maximum of 48 cores with a CUoD granularity of one core.

The Power 760 model RMD server supports a maximum of 64 DDR3 DIMM slots, 16 per 0/12-core processor DCM. Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 8, 16, 32, and 64 GB and run at speeds of 1066 MHz. A system with four DCMs installed has a maximum memory of 2048 GB. Also, the optional Active Memory Expansion can enable the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory. Innovative compression/decompression of memory content using processor cycles can enable memory expansion up to 125% for AIX® partitions. A server with a maximum of 2048 GB can effectively be expanded to greater than 4 TB. This can enhance virtualization and server consolidation by allowing more partitions or running more work with the same physical amount of memory.

The Power 760 server offers great I/O expandability. In addition to the six PCIe Gen2 slots in the system unit, up to four 12X-attached I/O drawers (#5802 or #5877) add up to 40 PCIe Gen1 slots. This set of PCI slots can deliver extensive connectivity to LANs, switches, SANs, asynchronous devices, SAS storage, tape storage, and more. For example, more than 64 TB of SAS disk storage is supported.

The Power 760 server includes six SFF SAS bays. This offers up to 5.4 TB HDD capacity or up to 3.6 TB SSD capacity. All SAS disks and SSDs are 2.5-inch SFF and hot swappable. The six SAS or SSD bays can be split into two sets of three bays for additional configuration flexibility using just the integrated SAS adapters.

Two new SSD packages offer ordering convenience and price savings for a new server order. Each 6-pack SSD feature #ESR2/#ESR4 for the EXP30 Ultra SSD I/O Drawer can provide up to 140,000 I/O operations per second (IOPS) in just 1/5th of a 1U drawer. The 4-pack SSD feature #ESRA/ESRB/ESRC/ESRD can provide up to 90,000 IOPS. A 6-pack or 4-pack SSD must be ordered with the server, not as a later MES order.

The following feature-numbered I/O drawers are available for order on the Power 760 server:

12X I/O drawer cables

19-inch racks

The 9109-RMD and its I/O drawers are designed to mount in the 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks. These are built to the 19-inch EIA standard. When ordering a new 9109 system, you can order the appropriate 7014 rack model with the system hardware on the same initial order. IBM also makes the racks available as features of the 9109-RMD when you order additional I/O drawer hardware for an existing system (MES order). The rack features 0551 and 0553 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.

The 9109-RMD has the following rack requirements:

Integrated I/O

I/O slots and adapters

Power

Two ac power supplies are required for each CEC drawer; the second power supply provides redundant power for enhanced system availability. A CEC system unit is designed to continue to function with one working power supply. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.

Power distribution units

For systems installed in IBM 7014 or feature 055x racks, the following power distribution unit (PDU) rules apply (not all PDUs are available in all models of the 7014 or #055x):

To better enable electrical redundancy, each server drawer has two power supplies that must be connected to separate PDUs.

Hot-plug options

Logical partitioning

Available backplane configurations

The 760 CEC drawer has an extremely flexible and powerful backplane for supporting disk or SSDs. The six SFF bays can be configured in three different ways to match your business needs. Two built-in SAS controllers can be optionally augmented with a 175 MB Cache RAID Battery Card. Two embedded SAS disk/SSD controllers are included for redundancy or for additional flexibility. The optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card feature (#5662) enables dual 175 MB write cache and provides dual batteries for protection of that write cache.

The backplane can be configured as one set of six bays, two sets of three bays (3/3), or three sets of two bays (2/2/2). Configuration options will vary depending upon the controller options and the operating system selected. The controllers for the six-bay or 3/3 configurations are always the two pairs of embedded controllers. If the 2/2/2 configuration is used, the two embedded controllers run the first two sets of bays (2/2) and a feature 5901 PCIe SAS adapter located in a PCIe slot in a CEC drawer controls the third set (2). By having three controllers, you can have three boot drives supporting three partitions.

The following SSD/HDD configuration rules apply:

You can configure the two embedded controllers together as a pair for higher redundancy or you can configure them separately. If you configure them separately, they can be owned by different partitions or they could be treated independently within the same partition. If configured as a pair, they provide controller redundancy and can automatically switch over to the other controller should one have problems. Also, if configured as a pair, both can be active at the same time (active/active), assuming there are two or more arrays configured to give you additional performance capability as well as redundancy. If configured as a pair, the pair controls all six SFF bays and all six drives. The 3/3 or 2/2/2 configurations are not used with the paired controllers. RAID 0 and RAID 10 are supported, and you can also mirror two sets of controller/drives using the operating system.

Adding the optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) causes the pair of embedded controllers in that processor system unit to be configured as dual controllers accessing all six SAS bays. Without the feature 5662, each of the two controllers can access only two or three SAS bays. With the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card, you can get controller redundancy, additional RAID protection options, and additional I/O performance. RAID 5 (a minimum of three drives required) and RAID 6 (a minimum of four drives required) are available when configured as dual controllers with one set of six bays.

Another expansion option available using the paired embedded controller configuration with the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card feature is an SAS expansion port. The SAS expansion port can add more SAS bays to the six bays in the system unit. A feature 5887 SAS disk drawer in mode 1 can be attached using an SAS port on the rear of the processor drawer, and its 24 SAS bays are run by the pair of embedded controllers. The pair of embedded controllers are now running 30 SAS bays (six SFF bays in the system unit and 24 SFF bays in the drawer). The disk drawer is attached to the SAS port with a SAS YI cable and the embedded controllers connected to the port using a feature 1819 cable assembly. In this 30-bay configuration, all drives must be HDDs. A feature 5886 SAS disk drawer can similarly be configured in place of the #5887 drawer.

IBM i supports configurations using one set of six bays but does not support logically splitting the backplane into 3/3 or 2/2/2. Thus, the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) is required if IBM i is to access any of the SAS bays in that processor system unit. AIX, Linux, and VIOS support configurations using two sets of three bays (3/3) or three sets of two bays (2/2/2) without feature 5662 and supports dual controllers running one set of six bays with feature 5662.

The system backplane also includes a third embedded controller for running the DVD-RAM drive in the CEC drawer. Because the controller is independent from the two SAS disk/SSD controllers, the DVD can be switched between multiple partitions without affecting the assignment of disks or SSDs in the CEC drawer.

Disks, media, and boot devices/Load source devices

Capacity Upgrade on Demand

With Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) you can purchase additional permanent processor capacity in support of a changing work load environment. Processor core activations are purchased either with the initial server or with an MES order at a later time. You can have, for example, a server with 48 physical cores installed, but have activated only part of them. The pricing of the processor cores is based on paying part of the price with the physical core when you physically have it on the server and part of the price only when the core is activated.

CUoD provides three primary benefits. The first is reliability. For example, in the unlikely event of many processor DCM failures, the system is designed in many situations to be able to transparently switch over workload off the failed to other cores which in this context are "standing by". Thus, potentially there can be no impact to your production operations until a service call to replace the failed DCMs is scheduled. A second benefit is less scheduled downtime for processor core "upgrades". The Power 760 must be powered down to add processor DCMs. If you have already physically installed processor cores, they can be quickly activated once IBM ships the activation key. A third benefit is the ability to defer the cost of the activation until it is needed.

Note that processor Elastic (On/Off) or Utility or Trial Capacity on Demand is not provided. Note also that memory CUoD and memory CoD is not available.

Capacity Backup offering (applies to IBM i only)

The Power 760 systems Capacity Backup (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 number 0444 is available only as part of a new server purchase of a 9109-RMD. 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 fail-over 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 760 server can be:

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P30 software tier, or higher. 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. Such messages that arise 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 an 8-core Power 760 as your primary system with four IBM i processor license entitlements (three above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to three IBM i entitlements 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.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative POWER7+ and POWER7 technology that allows the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory maximum. The POWER7+ hardware accelerator for Active Memory Expansion delivers 25% higher levels of memory expansion than available with POWER7 processor chips. POWER7+ chips contain a hardware accelerator which handles much of the compression/decompression of memory content can allow memory expansion up to 125%, about 25% more than POWER7 chips. This can enable an AIX partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can enable 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 with Technology Level 4 and Service Pack 2, or later.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to expand memory capacity. 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. It also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this expansion overhead. 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.

You have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn Active Memory Expansion on or off. Control parameters set the amount of expansion you need 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 on memory expansion. After monitoring capabilities are turned on, the are available in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX , 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 enable more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. You can request the trial using the Capacity on Demand web page

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

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by 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.

IBM i operating system

For clients loading the IBM i operating system, the four-digit numeric QPRCFEAT value used on the 9109-RMD is the same as the four-digit numeric feature number for the processors used in the system. For example, if the processor feature number in a system is EPT5, the QPRCFEAT value for the system would be EPT5. The QPRCFEAT value in a Power 760 server does not change with the addition of more processor DCMs.

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS)

The reliability of the IBM Power 760 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 high product quality levels.

The processor and memory subsystem contain a number of features designed to avoid or correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent failures as well as handle solid faults in components, including selective redundancy to tolerate certain faults without requiring an outage or parts replacement.

The AIX operating system supports disk mirroring (RAID 1) and disk controller duplexing. The Linux operating system supports disk drive mirroring (RAID 1). The adapter offers RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 for AIX and Linux . Under IBM i OS, mirroring and data spreading is supplied by the operating system and RAID 5 and RAID 6 are supplied by the adapter.

Memory error-correction extensions

POWER7+ memory has error detection and correction code circuitry designed to detect and correct faults that extend across multiple memory modules (DRAMs). This includes tolerating a complete DRAM chip failure (Chipkill recovery). POWER7+ memory used in the Power 760 system also contains a spare memory (DRAM) per rank of memory, which can be substituted for a failed DRAM module (DRAM sparing). The spares can be used when a DRAM fault is detected and offers additional protection beyond that provided by the error detection and correction circuitry. In addition, the POWER7+ memory subsystem scrubs memory to detect and correct intermittent errors.

The bus transferring data between the processor and the memory uses CRC error detection with a failed operation retry mechanism and the ability to dynamically retune bus parameters when a fault occurs. In addition, if a data bit goes bad, the memory bus has the spare capacity to substitute a new data bit-line.

Fault monitoring functions

On POWER7+ processor-based servers, hardware failures and software-detected hardware failures are recorded in the system log. An error log analysis (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 check stop conditions and forwards them to the SFP application and notifies the system administrator.

After the information is logged, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request is initiated, and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is sent to an IBM Service organization. Client contact information and specific system-related data, such as the machine type, model, and serial number along with engineering data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service. The call home feature enables IBM service representatives to preemptively bring the most likely replacement parts when a service call is placed, reducing repair time.

Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it affects customer operation.

Mutual surveillance

The service processor monitors the operation of firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and performs 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 notifies the operating system, and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service or initiating a failover operation to the alternate service processor if present.

Environmental monitoring functions

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

POWER7+ processor availability enhancements

As in POWER6® , the POWER7+ processor can 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. With this function, 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. In a number of cases, systems with POWER7+ processors can 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 check stopping

As in POWER6 , POWER7+ includes single processor check stopping for certain faults that cannot be handled by the availability enhancements described in the preceding section. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

Dynamic Fabric Bus Repair

For fabric buses connecting CEC drawers, this feature enables a faulty line on the fabric bus to be replaced by a spare dynamically, without the need to take down the system.

POWER7+ cache availability

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER7+ processor are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, the caches maintain the ability to delete a cache line. A threshold of correctable errors detected on a cache line can result in the data in the cache line being purged and the cache line removed from further operation without requiring a reboot. An ECC uncorrectable error detected in the cache can also trigger a purge and delete of the cache line. This results in no loss of operation if the cache line contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory. Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent error and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures. In addition, the POWER7+ processors also have the ability to dynamically substitute a faulty bit-line in an L3 cache dedicated to a processor with a spare bit-line.

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 examines the affected bus, enables the device driver to reset it, and continues 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 restart automatically following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The IBM Power 760 is designed with both IBM and customer serviceability in mind. Advancements such as Guiding Light LED architecture are used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible. With the Power 760, you can replace service parts (customer replaceable unit). To do this, the Power 760 uses Guiding Light LEDs to indicate the parts that need to be replaced.

An HMC attached to the Power 760 enables support personnel (with your authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consist of stand-alone diagnostics, that are loaded from the DVD-RAM drive, and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX error log and the AIX configuration data.


Note: Because the 9109-RMD system has an optional DVD-RAM (#5762), alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-RAM is not ordered; an external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system microcode to the latest required level.

Concurrent maintenance guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component are documented and available for display on any web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. These procedures are available through the InfoCenter application.

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 HMC V7.7.0 (SP1) contains the following:

Service Interface

Using the Service Interface, support personnel can 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 enables 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:

In the Guiding Light LED implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER7+ system, an amber system fault LED is illuminated on the operator panel. The Guiding Light system pinpoints the exact part by blinking the amber field-replaceable unit (FRU) identify LED associated with the part to be replaced when selected by the servicer as part of the repair procedure. This action will roll up to the system unit locate and blue system locate LED on the operator panel to provide a path from the system level to the system unit and down to the individual component to be serviced.

The system unit and system identify LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the path from the system to the system unit 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 extended 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. 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.

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 is stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, the error is 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 can 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 also turns 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 system unit 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 is initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is sent to an IBM service organization. Client 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 can 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 processor menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, enabling nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Notes :

RAID

There are multiple protection options for disk/SSD drives in the SAS SFF bays in Power 760 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 760 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.

Software requirements

If installing the AIX operating system (one of these):

If installing the IBM i operating system (one of these):

If installing the Linux operating system, use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2, or later, with current maintenance updates available from SUSE to enable all planned functionality.

Users interested in Red Hat Enterprise Linux should consult the Statement of general direction .

Users should also update their systems with the latest Linux for Power service and productivity tools available from IBM's website

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/home.html

If installing VIOS, use VIOS 2.2.2.2, or later.

If installing Java™ 1.4.2 on POWER7+ servers, there are unique considerations when running Java 1.4.2 on POWER7+ . For best exploitation of the outstanding performance capabilities and most recent improvements of POWER7+ technology, IBM recommends upgrading Java-based applications to Java 7, Java 6, or Java 5 whenever possible. For more information, refer to the following website

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/aix/service.html
Limitations

System

The integrated system port (the serial port on an Integrated Multifunction Card) is not supported under AIX or Linux when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system port can be used, but not both. The integrated system port is supported for modem and asynch terminal connections by AIX or Linux . Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCIe slot. The integrated system port does not support HACMP™ configurations. IBM i does not support the use of the system port with or without an HMC.

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. Machine code includes firmware and microcode. Access to machine code updates is conditioned on entitlement and license validation in accordance with IBM policy and practice. IBM may verify entitlement through customer number, serial number, electronic restrictions, or any other means or methods employed by IBM in its discretion.

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.

The HMC V7.7.0 (SP1) contains the following:

The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent ." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

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

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic 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. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting: Since 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 Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by 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 Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. IBM may request Electronic Service Agent (ESA) activation and you must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Scheduling of service will depend the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives, may be limited in some areas, 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-specific and location-specific information.

Customer replacement parts

Tier 1 CRUs are those parts which require minimal effort, skill, or experience in order to service. Tier 1 items are mandatory CRUs when base 9 x 5 next-business-day warranty or maintenance is specified in the terms and conditions contract and is in force. However, if the customer elects not to perform Tier 1 service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7x24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts, Tier 1 and Tier2, may be replaced or serviced by a SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

Tier 2 CRUs require more effort than Tier 1 CRUs and also require a higher level of skill and/or experience when being serviced by the customer. As with Tier 1 parts, if the customer elects not to perform Tier service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7 x 24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts will be replaced or serviced by an SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 2 CRUs:

CRU and on-site service

At IBM's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

This product is provided with a one-year standard warranty. For your convenience, IBM has provided two additional years of extended warranty services plus an upgrade to 24x7 coverage to make this offering. Consult with your advisors about the appropriate financial treatment for this offering. See your sales representative for other available service options.

Non-IBM parts service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts 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

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of on-site service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM . You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts.

Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) may be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under one of the on-site service levels specified above. For additional information on the CRU Service, see the warranty information.
