    High-Performance Server Subsystems  xSeries 445 servers are high-throughput, highly scalable, 16-way SMP-capable Xeon MP-based network servers. The server is equipped with powerful and now price reduced 2.0 GHz Xeon MP processors that contain 1 MB ECC L3 caches. High-speed, PC2100 DDR ECC SDRAM provides excellent processor-to-memory subsystem performance.

    The xSeries 445 is tuned and engineered with the IBM XA-32 second-generation chipset to optimize throughput between the powerful Xeon and Xeon MP processors, the XceL4 Server Accelerator Cache, and other components of the server. The architecture consists of the following components:

    • Xeon MP processors
    • XceL4 Server Accelerator Cache
    • Up to two SMP expansion modules (one standard in this model)
    • Two PCI-X host-bridge controllers

    These next-generation Xeon MP processors use 100 MHz common clock speed for external operations. Source synchronous strobes of 200 and 400 MHz are used to support 200 MHz (double-pumped) address and 400 MHz (quad-pumped) data buses to the memory controller. This allows up to 6.4 GB/s data transfers between memory and the processors.

    Each SMP expansion module contains:

    • Four processor connectors for Xeon MP
    • 64 MB of XceL4 Server Accelerator Cache
    • Sixteen memory slots, supporting up to 32 GB of ECC DDR SDRAM
    • Memory controller that supports:
      • Data flow between the processor, XceL4 system cache, and memory, and to the two PCI-X host-bridge controllers
      • High-speed port to exploit external PCI-X expansion, connecting an optional RXE-100 Remote Expansion Enclosure
      • Chipkill ECC memory function

    The 16 PC2100 DDR SDRAM memory sockets, synchronized to the 100 MHz processor speed, support up to 32 GB of system memory on each SMP expansion module (using the 2 GB DDR DIMM) for a total of 64 GB system memory per chassis. The memory is two-way interleaved (memory installed in pairs) with two ports to the memory controller supporting up to 6.4 GB/s data transfers.

    Note: The x445 server supports a maximum of 64 GB of addressable system memory. This can be up to 128 GB of physical memory in mirrored configurations. The total 64 GB addressable limit may span up to two chassis in 16-way configurations.

    xSeries 445 has two PCI-X host-bridge controllers that reside between the PCI buses and the memory controller or controllers, depending on the configuration. These host-bridge controllers support six PCI buses. Two buses are for integrated functions and four buses are dedicated to the six 64-bit PCI-X expansion slots.

    Buses that support integrated functions include:

    • Bus F supports 66 MHz, 64-bit PCI-X controllers:
      • LSI Logic Dual Ultra320 SCSI with integrated RAID-1
      • Broadcom dual port 5704 10/100/1000 Ethernet
    • Bus E supports:
      • Remote Supervisor Adapter II-EXA installed in dedicated slot. For details, refer to the Remote Supervisor Adapter II section in Additional Information.
      • SVGA (ATI Rage XL, 8 MB), EIDE, and super I/O controllers

    The four 64-bit, PCI-X buses support the following 64-bit, PCI-X slots:

    • Bus D: one 133 MHz PCI-X adapter
    • Bus C: one 133 MHz PCI-X adapter
    • Bus B: two 100 MHz PCI-X adapters
    • Bus A: two 66 MHz PCI-X adapters

    High-Availability and Serviceability Features   

    To run your e-business environment around the clock, you need continual access to information around the globe. This environment requires ruggedly dependable servers designed with features that can tolerate a component failure without total shutdown. xSeries 445 servers pack numerous fault-tolerant and high-availability features into a high-density, rack-optimized package that significantly reduces the space needed to support massive network computing operations.

    For details, refer to the High-Availability and Serviceability Features section.

    Copper Diagnostics 

    • Copper diagnostics require IBM Director, in addition to BIOS (also Service Processor code)

      • Auto-detection: Detects and reports a correctly cabled multichassis configuration before booting for optimized performance.

      • Cable failover and redundancy: Minimizes single point of failure by supporting failover of a single cable to any remaining cable in the event of a cable pull or cable failure. The system moves all traffic to the remaining cable, in many cases without requiring a reboot.

    Remote I/O (RIO) Sharing  Supported single RIO configurations include one RXE-100 Remote Expansion Enclosure shared between two x445 4-way, 8-way, or 16-way xSeries 445 servers. Both PCI-X 6-packs must be installed to support RIO sharing as each server will access six additional PCI-X slots.

    Compatibility

    The xSeries 445 server contains licensed system programs that include set configuration, set features, and test programs. IBM system BIOS is loaded from a "flash" EEPROM into system memory. This BIOS provides instructions and interfaces designed to support the standard features of the xSeries 445 server and to maintain compatibility with many current software programs.

    For detailed information about IBM and non-IBM devices, adapters, software, and network operating systems supported with xSeries servers, visit:

    http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/compat

    Contact your IBM representative, IBM Business Partner, the Support Center, or refer to the IBM Sales Manual for information on the compatibility of hardware and software for xSeries servers. The Sales Manual is updated periodically as new features and options are announced that support these servers.

    Limitations

    • This model of the xSeries 445contains two processors. SMP upgrades must be performed as follows:
      • Processors must be of the same type and clock speed. Mixing processors of different speeds or cache sizes is not supported
      • From two-way to four-way, upgrades to three-way are not supported at this time.
      • The standard SMP expansion module must be fully populated with four processors prior to installing a second xSeries 445 SMP Expansion Module with four additional Xeon MP processor options

    • The xSeries 445 servers contain a standard SMP expansion module with 16 DIMM sockets. A maximum of 32 GB of system memory per SMP expansion module is supported by adding a 2 GB PC2100 DDR ECC SDRAM RDIMM in each of the 16 DIMM sockets. An optional xSeries 445 SMP Expansion Module can be installed to support additional processors and another 16 DIMM sockets for a total system memory capacity of 64 GB. All supported system memory is addressable through direct memory access.

    • The xSeries 445 uses 72-bit Dual Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM Registered Dual In-line Memory Modules (RDIMMs) in sizes ranging from 512 MB to 2 GB. The system is shipped with 2 GB (4 x 512 MB) and can be expanded to 32 GB per SMP Expansion module using 16 x 2 GB DIMMs. xSeries 445 memory is two-way interleaved, DIMMs must be added two at a time. Each group of two DIMMs must be the same memory size. Different groups can be 512 MB, 1 GB, or 2 GB DIMMs. Supported RDIMMs can coexist in the same server; however, due to two-way interleaving, memory RDIMMs of the same capacity must be installed in matched sets of two. Refer to the Planning Information section or the xSeries server Web page for memory options.

    • The two 1200-watt power supplies standard with xSeries 445 produce the full 1200 watt power rating when connected to 220 V ac power sources. When connected to 110 V ac, they produce 600 watts of power for system use. This power may be insufficient to provide n+n redundancy in full configurations. For this reason, the xSeries 445 server should be connected to 220-watt power sources.

    Refer to the Software Requirements section in Additional Information for operating system limitations.

    Planning Information

    Customer Responsibilities

    xSeries 445 and Related Options

    The xSeries 445 server and related options are designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with systems and options.

    Configuration Information:

    Bay Configuration

    The xSeries 445 server contains four drive bays on the lower front side of the server. The bottom two side-by-side bays contain the standard DVD-ROM and 1.44 MB diskette drive. Two 3.5-inch, SCA-2 compliant, slim-high, hot-swap drive bays are located above these two bays.

    The EIDE DVD-ROM is cabled directly to the IDE port. The two hot-swap bays are connected to the integrated Ultra320 SCSI controller through a 16-bit LVDS cable.

    Internal SCSI Cabling

    An optional ServeRAID controller is supported for internal RAID applications beyond RAID-1. A separate 16-bit LVDS cable is included with the system to attach the hot-swap backplane to the ServeRAID controller. RAID Level 1 provides redundancy by writing all data to two or more drives. The performance of a level 1 array tends to be faster on reads and slower on writes compared to a single drive, but if either drive fails, no data is lost. This is a good entry-level redundant system, since only two drives are required; however, since one drive is used to store a duplicate of the data, the cost per megabyte is high. This level is commonly referred to as mirroring.

    The Ultra320 SCSI controller contains a second channel that supports external SCSI devices. The controller is connected to an external, industry-standard, 0.8 mm very high density connector interface (VHDCI) through a 16-bit LVDS cable.

    Memory Support

    The following memory options are supported:

    • 512 MB PC2100 DDR ECC SDRAM RDIMM (33L5038)
    • 1 GB PC2100 DDR ECC SDRAM RDIMM (33L5039)
    • 2 GB PC2100 DDR ECC SDRAM RDIMM (33L5040)

    Rack Installations

    xSeries 445 4 U, rack-optimized servers are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 26-inch deep devices, such as the NetBAY42 ER, NetBAY42 SR, or NetBAY25 SR. Tower-like or mini-rack xSeries 445 installations can be created with the NetBAY11 Standard Rack Cabinet.

    If you use a non-IBM rack, the cabinet must meet the EIA-310-D standards with a depth of at least 0.72 meters (28 inches). 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 xSeries 445 includes two, standard 1200-watt, hot-swap, redundant power supplies. This provides sufficient power to support n+n redundancy for all configurations.

    Cable Orders

    The 10/100/1000 Mbps full duplex, Dual Ethernet PCI controller, standard with xSeries 445, is connected directly to a RJ-45 connector. The RJ-45 connector provides 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 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.

    SMP Expansion Modules must be cabled together in installations that use greater than four Xeon MP processors

    Installability

    The xSeries 445 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.

    IBM Electronic Services

    IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and pre-emptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent.

    IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

    The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system that is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM Warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
