IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis

The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis (7893-92X) is a 10U next-generation server platform with integrated chassis management. It is a compact, high-density, high-performance, rack-mount, scalable server platform system. It supports up to 14 one-bay compute nodes that can share common resources, such as power, cooling, management, and I/O resources within a single Flex System Enterprise Chassis. In addition, it can also support up to seven 2-bay compute nodes or three 4-bay compute nodes when the shelves are removed from the chassis. You can mix and match 1-bay, 2-bay, and 4-bay compute nodes to meet your specific hardware needs.

The Flex System Enterprise Chassis can support the following components:

Configuring the Flex System Enterprise Chassis

You can configure the Flex System Enterprise Chassis locally or remotely using the Flex System Manager. Configuring the chassis involves performing all of the tasks that are necessary to set up a functioning chassis on which you can begin to install applications.

The chassis system provides the following features:

Systems Management

The IBM Flex System Manager (FSM) provides configuration and management support for multiple (up to four) chassis, their devices, and the compute nodes locally or remotely. You can install up to two FSMs in each four-chassis configuration (one FSM in two of the four chassis) for redundancy. This enables the system to continue to operate without disruption if one fails. The Flex System Manager provides all of the management functions that the CMM provides, plus other advanced manage functions.

The IBM Flex System Chassis Management Module (CMM) provides single-chassis management. The CMM is used to communicate with the service processor in each compute node to provide system monitoring, event recording and alerts, and to manage the chassis, its devices, and the compute nodes. The chassis supports up to two chassis management modules. If one CMM fails, the second CMM can detect its inactivity and activate itself and take control of the system without any disruption.

Flex System Networking Portfolio

Networking in data centers is undergoing a transition from a discrete traditional model to a more flexible, optimized model or the "Smarter" model. Clients are looking to support more workloads with a decreasing or flat IT budget. The network architecture on the Flex System platform has been designed to address the key challenges customers are facing today in their data centers. The key attributes of the network architecture on this platform are:

One of the key attributes of most of the products on this platform is scalability. When modules are marked "Scalable," this means that clients can buy the base product with a certain number of ports, and when they need to scale up for more ports, they can just buy the license to enable the extra ports without having to provision any new hardware.

The Flex System networking portfolio includes:

Software requirements

No software is required for the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis.

Limitations

Solid State Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles that each cell can incur. As a result each solid state device has a maximum amount of write cycles it can be subjected to, documented as TBW (Total Bytes Written). IBM is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached the maximum guaranteed number of write cycles. This limit may be revealed as the device failing to communicate to system generated commands or become incapable of being written to.

Total chassis power limitations may prevent the maximum configured IBM Flex System p260 or IBM Flex System p460 Compute Nodes from being populated in every slot in the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis. Refer to the following website for specific information.

http://www-912.ibm.com/see/EnergyEstimator

Planning information

Cable orders

No cables are required.

Security, auditability, and control

This product uses the security and auditability features of host software and application software.

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

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.

IBM Global Financing

Yes

Warranty period

Three years.
Note: For configurations that support the RAID battery, the RAID battery will be warranted for one year effective on its "Date of Installation." All other product warranty terms for the machine remain unchanged.

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. 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 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.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 2 CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs 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, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. 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.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

On-site Service

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:

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.

International warranty service

International Warranty Service (IWS) is available in selected countries or regions.

The warranty service type, for example, On-site repair and customer replaceable unit, and service level, 9 x 5 next-business-day and 24 x 7, provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased.

Under IWS, warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the IWS-eligible machine type in the servicing country and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

To determine the eligibility of your machine and to view a list of countries where service is available, visit

http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?Indocid=MIGR-5070246

For more information on IWS, refer to Services Announcement 601-034, dated September 25, 2001.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. A warranty service upgrade must be purchased during the warranty period and is for a fixed term (duration). It is not refundable or transferable and may not be prorated. If required, IBM will provide the warranty service upgrade enhanced level of On-Site Service acquired by the customer. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty service section for additional details.

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.

On-site Service

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. The following on-site response-time objectives are available as warranty service upgrades for your machine.

The service level is:

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 the CRU and On-site Service level specified above. For additional information on the CRU Service, see the warranty information.

Maintenance services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via 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. 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 maintenance 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. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type.

On-site Service

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 levels are:

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), and depending upon the maintenance service offerings in your geography, IBM will ship the replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next-business-day 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.

CRUs may be provided as part of the machine's standard maintenance service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under any of the On-site Service levels specified above.

Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer 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 part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.
