Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Flex System Fabric is an interconnect technology that optimizes systems for maximum performance, automates network deployment, and offers integrated management via the Flex System Manager.

The IBM Flex System Fabric SI4093 System Interconnect Module offers a simple unmanaged device in the chassis. This module offers layer 2 function in the chassis for highest performance but reduces management by enabling "End Host Mode" operation. In this mode, this module is transparent to the upstream Top Of Rack switches. This module comes preconfigured to reduce management and setup. The base module supports 14 internal 10 Gb ports and 10 external SFP+ 10 Gb ports and can be expanded with two upgrade options. This module will also support enhanced features like IBM Virtual Fabric and convergence.

Clients requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency can leverage the 40 Gb solution. Additional Fibre Channel 2-port and 4-port adapters are available. Clients can connect to their SAN infrastructure at 8 Gb or 16 Gb speed for highest performance and maximum reliability.

The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis is a rack-optimized, 10U modular design enclosure that holds up to 14 nodes. A new model includes a standard 2100W Power Module.

Flex System Enterprise Chassis

The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis (machine type 8721) 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 standard-width 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 double-width (2-bay) compute nodes or three double-wide, double-high (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.

Warranty Information
P.O. Box 12195
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
Attn: Dept JDJA/B203

Warranty period

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.

The following have been designated as consumables, supply items, or structural parts and therefore not covered by this warranty:

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 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. 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.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive) Service and On-site Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (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 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU. Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, 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 designated for your machine.

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, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and 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 or features have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

On-site Service

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or IBM or your reseller will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. If required, On-site Repair is provided, 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. 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. On-site Service is not available in all countries, and some countries have kilometer or mileage limitations from an IBM service center. In those locations where On-site Service is not available, the normal in-country service delivery is used.

Call IBM at 1-800-IBM-SERV (426-7378) to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period.

Calls must be received by 5:00 p.m. local time in order to qualify for NBD service.

International Warranty Service

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

The warranty service type and the service level 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?lndocid=GCOR-3FBJK2

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

Maintenance services

ServicePac® , ServiceSuite® , ServiceElect, and ServiceElite

ServicePac , ServiceSuite , ServiceElect, and ServiceElite provide hardware warranty service upgrades, maintenance, and selected support services in one agreement.

Warranty service upgrade

During the warranty period, a warranty service upgrade provides 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.

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.

CRUs will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU Service except that you may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under one of the On-site Service levels specified below.

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.

Maintenance service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of maintenance service specified below for the machine. 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 .

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. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed.

CRU Service

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), IBM will ship the 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.

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, and 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.

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.

Maintenance service (ICA)

Maintenance services are available for ICA legacy contracts.

Alternative service (warranty service upgrades)

During the warranty period, a warranty service upgrade provides 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.

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.

A CRU will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU Service except that you may install a Tier 1 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service designated for your machine.

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.

Non-IBM parts support

Warranty 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 its customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades and maintenance services

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

IBM Service provides hardware problem determination on non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, or memory) installed within IBM machines covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services 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.

IBM may release changes to the Machine Code. IBM plans to make the Machine Code changes available for download from the IBM System x technical support website

http://www-304.ibm.com/systems/support/

If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable Machine Code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install downloadable Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Access to IBM Flex System fix downloads will be granted upon entitlement validation. The terms and conditions for fixes will be covered under the License Agreement for Machine Code, International Program License Agreement, International License Agreement for Non-Warranted Programs, and/or other terms provided with the fix, as applicable.

Machine Code License Acceptance Requirement

Acceptance-By-Use Machine: No, the Machine Code license requires signed acceptance by the machine's end user directly with IBM , applicable to orders for a new machine, machine type conversion MES, and machines transferred to another user.
