Model Abstract 7025-F50

The RS/6000 Model F50 server is the first of a new generation of 1 to 4-way symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) workgroup and enterprise servers that provide for unprecedented commercial price/performance. Utilizing the advanced PowerPC* 604e processor and X5 Level 2 (L2) cache system, the Model F50 is well suited for customers who want commercial solutions to address mission critical online transaction processing as well as collaborative computing comprised of Lotus Notes**, Domino Server, Internet, intranet, extranet, and groupware application solutions. The Model F50 can be used as a stand-alone, multiuser application server and has the connectivity to participate in most currently installed UNIX and PC networks. It can also be configured as a database or transaction server with your choice of SCSI-2, UltraSCSI, or Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) RAID disk by taking advantage of the storage expansion capability of the system. It is designed to allow for system growth in memory, disk, media devices, and 1 to 4-way processor scalability as needs grow over time.

Description

The Model F50 server base offering includes a 166MHz PowerPC 604e processor, 128MB of Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) SDRAM memory (expandable to 3GB), 32KB of both instruction and data Level 1 (L1) cache, an ECC X5 L2 cache comprised of 256KB per processor in an 8-Way Set Associative implementation, a 4.5GB SCSI-2 Fast/Wide disk drive, dual integrated SCSI-2 Fast/Wide controllers, an Ethernet** 10Base5/T controller, an 8X CD-ROM, and a 3.5-inch diskette drive. Its SMP design allows easy expandability through the addition of a second, third or fourth 166MHz processor each with its own L1 and L2 cache.

The Model F50 includes a 1-2 user, full function AIX Version 4.2.1 package at no additional charge.

The F50 is packaged in a 9 X 22 (nine I/O slots, up to 22 disk/media bays - 10 standard and 12 optional) floor standing tower that is attractive, compact and quiet. It is designed for easy installation by users because it is shipped with the desired adapters and internal devices already configured and installed, and the AIX software optionally preinstalled.

The Model F50 server includes a modular disk subsystem that allows fast, easy addition and replacement of drives. It has a hot-swappable storage maximum capacity of 163.8GB and a flexible I/O subsystem of five PCI (32-bit), two PCI (64-bit), and two shared (32-bit) PCI/ISA expansion slots. The I/O channels supported are the industry common, high- performance PCI bus in addition to the traditional ISA bus. The bus implementation is a tri-peer PCI bus architecture resulting in an aggregate I/O bandwidth of up to 400MB/sec. All adapters have undergone thorough testing to assure system compatibility.

Reliability, Availability, Serviceability:

The Model F50 integrates key reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) attributes including:

  • ECC on system memory and L2 cache which corrects environmentally induced single bit intermittent memory failures as well as single bit hard failures. With ECC, the majority of L2 cache and memory failures will not impact system operation. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection which protects data integrity in the event of a double- bit memory failure.

  • The system, I/O and PCI buses are designed with parity error detection.

  • Hot-swappable disk drives so users can take disks offline or put them back into service without interrupting the operation of their system.

  • RAID 0, 1, and 5 for internal devices (optional via adapter) which provides data integrity and fault tolerant in the event of disk drive failure.

  • Online (concurrent) and remote (LAN or modem) system diagnostics.

  • AIX's Journaled File System maintains file system consistency and prevents data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.

  • Service Director* for RS/6000 (available at no additional charge if your RS/6000 processor is covered by an IBM Warranty or IBM Maintenance Service Agreement) monitors and analyzes system errors, and if needed, can automatically place a service call to IBM without customer intervention. It also performs problem analysis on a subset of hardware- related problems and can automatically report the results to IBM Service. This can reduce the effect of business disruptions due to unplanned system outages and failures.

A service processor is included as standard and provides an immediate means to diagnose, check status, and sense operational conditions of a remote server, even when the main processor is inoperable. It enables or contributes to the following RAS functions:

  • Integrated system environmental monitoring/alerting. This includes AC/DC voltage, fan speed, and temperature sensing.
  • Early Power Off Warnings (EPOW) and error log analysis and alert.
  • Auto-dial out via use of Service Director, so as to call the IBM Service Center. The objective is to predict a potential component failure and automatically dispatch IBM Service to take preventative maintenance measures to avoid an outage.
  • Programmable by the system administrator to reboot after a power loss, hardware checkstop failures, machine check interrupt, and operating system hang or failure.

Disk Subsystem:

The Model F50 disk subsystem has been designed to provide exceptional expandability with easy installation and service. The Model F50 disk offerings allow internal disk capacities ranging from 4.5GB to 172.8GB (163.8GB hot-swappable) in either 4.5GB or 9.1GB increments through use of the seven available disk/media bays and 12 optional disk bays. The SSA storage interface may be utilized in addition to the popular and widely used SCSI-2 interface. SSA disks deliver outstanding performance for transaction-intensive applications (up to four times data transfer rates of SCSI-2) and offer redundancy features to keep your data safe. Up to 4.8TB (terabytes) of SCSI-2 or 3.5TB of SSA disk storage may be externally attached.

Applications Compatibility:

Customers with applications currently installed on RS/6000 processors can enjoy binary compatibility by installing AIX Version 4.2.1 on their Model F50 systems. This provides the ability to further distribute applications on low-cost servers without having to maintain different operating systems and applications, permitting rapid exportation to multiple remote sites.

Year 2000 Readiness:

The Model F50 and its supported AIX operating system are Year 2000 ready. When used with their associated documentation, they are capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the 20th and 21st centuries, provided all other products (for example software, hardware and firmware) used with them properly exchange date data.

Product Positioning

The Model F50 is the high-end of the RS/6000 workgroup server family and the entry of the enterprise server family. It is upgradable from the Model F40 preserving investments in installed storage, media, and adapters and boosts relative OLTP performance for a four-way system by as much as four times over a two-way Model F40. It has key reliability features such as the service processor and hot-swappable disk drives that are required for mission critical environments. These features are standard on the F50 whereas they may be optional on other workgroup servers.

In addition, the Model F50 should be considered as a medium enterprise server. Its four-way SMP capability, excellent price/performance, RAS characteristics and slot expandability make it an excellent choice for sophisticated business and network applications. Its relative OLTP performance for a four-way system has been measured as two times that of a four-way Model G40 using an IBM-designed transaction processing, commercial benchmark.

Model Conversions

You can upgrade the 7025-F40 1-2 Way SMP to the 7025-F50 1, 2, 3, or 4(1) Way SMP.

Note: (1) A 4-Way F50 can be configured by ordering a quantity of two 2-Way CPU cards (FC #4309) when ordering the F50 model upgrade. The base 1-Way CPU card included with the upgrade order becomes the property of the customer and is not returned to IBM.

The following Qs and As provide details on the contents of the F50 model conversion shipment group and the additional features you will have to order or have available before performing the upgrade. Also, it discusses which existing features are supported. Please note that this model upgrade is not Customer Setup (CSU).

What is contained in the model conversion shipment group?

The upgrade to the Model F50 contains the following items:

  • The Model F50 base configuration, less boot hard disk and 8X CD-ROM, with the customer's existing serial number consisting of:

    • Service Processor standard

    • 1.44MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive

    • Five 32-bit PCI slots, two 32/64-bit PCI slots, and two shared PCI/ISA slots

    • Dual integrated SCSI-2 Fast/Wide controllers

    • One SCSI hard disk backplane providing for up to 6 available hard disk bays (Expandable to 22 total media and disk bays)
      • One media bay filled by base floppy diskette drive
      • Two available 5.25-inch x 1.6-inch media or boot disk mirroring (One filled by CD-ROM transfer from F40)

    • Integrated Ethernet with thick (10Base5) and twisted pair (10BaseT) output connectors

    • Keyboard and mouse ports

    • Three serial ports and one parallel port

    • 930-watt base power supply

    • New labels

    • Installation instructions

    • New diagnostics

    • New publications

When placing the order for the model upgrade you will have the ability to order all field installable features available on the F50 so that you can tailor your upgrade to best fit your computing environment. Select features will not be made available.

Your existing F40 disk, media devices, and PCI/ISA adapters may be transferred to the Model F50 system as most are supported. The replaced F40 chassis with its base features, less all hard disks and one 8X CD-ROM, become the property of IBM and must be returned to IBM. Optional features of the F40 system will either be installed in the F50 system or returned to you. These optional features include memory, processor cards, hard disk backplanes, media devices, PCI/ISA adapter cards, and power supplies.

Note: The F40 processor cards, memory, SCSI backplanes, service processor, power supplies, media device feature codes #6137 and #2630, high-end graphics and video capture adapters, microphone, and speakers are not supported on the F50 system.

What may be transferred from F40 to F50?

  • All hard disks
  • 8X CD-ROM
  • Most PCI/ISA communications and storage adapters
  • Graphics adapter limited to feature code #2839.

What additional features will I need to order?

At a minimum, upgraded machines must contain the same or equivalent base features as the Model F50 at the conclusion of the upgrade. A minimum of 4.4GB of SCSI hard disk capacity must be moved from the F40 to the F50. In addition, the 8X CD-ROM must be moved from the F40 to the F50.

The following items must be ordered or available for installation with the upgrade:

  • Must order MES Order Indicator feature code #0001
  • 8X CD-ROM
  • A minimum of 4.4 GB of SCSI hard disk capacity
  • At least one 332MHz processor card, either 1-way or 2-way
  • Memory DIMMs with a total capacity of at least 128 MB
  • Additional hard disk backplanes to support SCSI or SSA
  • AIX Version 4.2.1 (5765-C34) or later modification level is required

7025-F40s licensed for AIX Version 4.1 (Client, Server D5, or Connections package) or AIX Version 4.2 (Workgroup, Entry Server, or Connections) must upgrade to AIX Version 4.2.1 (5765-C34) as part of the model conversion. Additional Users must also be upgraded. The number of additional Users that can be upgraded is equal to the current number of Users that are licensed. AIX Version 4.1 Server D5 and AIX Version 4.2 Entry Server with unlimited Users can upgrade those Users to unlimited (78 billable) Designated Users. It is recommended that the upgrade to AIX Version 4.2.1 be accomplished on the F40 prior to the model conversion. Using Migration Install will preserve all file systems except /tmp, as well as the root volume group, logical volumes and system configuration files.

If additional hardware is required for the upgrade, it must be purchased with the upgrade or be available at the time of the upgrade. It may also be necessary to perform a prerequisite analysis of all customer machine orders prior to the upgrade being scheduled for shipment.

Which of my existing features are supported?

Many features on the existing F40 model are not supported on the model F50. Refer to the Feature Availability Matrix for a listing of supported and non-supported features. Non-supported features remain your property, except for the base F40 features, and are not returned to IBM.

Limitations

Digital Trunk Quad PCI Adapters

There can be a maximum of three Digital Trunk Quad PCI Adapters (#6309) installed in the system. The first adapter may be installed in any PCI slot. For systems with two or three Digital Trunk Quad PCI Adapters, only one may occupy slot 1 or 2, and only one may occupy slots 6, 7, 8, or 9. A maximum of two adapters may occupy slots 3, 4, or 5.

Gigabit Fibre Channel Adapters

There can be a maximum of three Gigabit Fibre Channel Adapters (#6227) installed in the system. The first adapter may be installed in slots 1 or 2, and the second adapter may be installed in slots 3, 4, or 5. If a third #6227 adapter is installed, it must be in slot 8, and slot 7 must be left empty. Therefore, any system with three #6227 adapters can have a maximum total of eight adapters occupying the nine PCI slots.

SCSI:

The P50 will typically be booted from a hard disk drive via a SCSI controller. A single SCSI 6-pack connected to an integrated SCSI controller is provided as the default via a base SCSI cable. This base cable also connects the SCSI media devices. A single hot-swappable 16-bit 4.5GB Ultra-SCSI enabled hard disk (#9394) is standard.

An option to disconnect the first SCSI 6-pack from the media devices is available. This option, using feature number 2443, provides for a cable and a terminator. The terminator terminates the base cable from the media devices when disconnected from the first SCSI 6-pack. The cable connects the second integrated SCSI controller to the first 6-pack. If this option is implemented, additional SCSI 6-packs (#6519) can be added. Each feature number 6519 must be driven by a PCI SCSI adapter (#6208) and connected via cable (#2447).

If there is no requirement to disconnect the first SCSI 6-pack from the media devices, then an optional second SCSI 6-pack (#6519), may be ordered and attached to the second integrated SCSI adapter via cable (#2444). An optional third SCSI 6-pack (#6519) may be ordered and driven by PCI SCSI adapter (#6208) connected via cable (#2447).

Note: feature numbers 2443 and 2444 are mutually exclusive.

In certain configurations it may be desirable to locate the F50's boot disk in a media bay. Feature #3006 is a select option that replaces the base 4.5GB hard disk (#9394) with a 4.5GB Ultra-SCSI enabled hard disk mounted in a media bay. Feature #6509, media bay mounting hardware, allows a second 4.5GB Ultra-SCSI enabled hard disk (#2900) in the remaining media bay to provide boot disk mirroring if desired by using the RAID mirroring function contained within AIX. Hard disks located in the media bays are not hot-swappable. When the F50's two available media bays are used in this manner any other optional devices, such as a taype backup unit, must be attached externally to the system.

Refer to Feature Availability Matrix for supported SCSI hard disks.

The following table indicates maximum devices that can be used with SCSI adapter and cable combinations. Multi-device indicates an external enclosure that may contain more than one SCSI device.

Support for the 9348-012 Tape Drive requires a dedicated SCSI adapter per unit.

SCSI RAID:

The IBM PCI RAID Adapter #2493 can be utilized to control the SCSI 6-packs and enable SCSI RAID 0, 1, and 5 under the covers of the F50. The RAID adapter can control up to three SCSI 6-packs. Each 6-pack requires cable feature #2447 for connection to the PCI SCSI RAID adapter. If SCSI RAID is implemented on the first 6-pack, the SCSI-2 boot disk must be moved to a media bay using feature #3006. Internal RAID Indicator (specify #9996) is utilized to indicate that attachment of the backplanes to the RAID adapter is desired. If specify feature #9996 is not present, it is assumed external devices only are to be attached to the RAID adapter.

Ultra-SCSI:

The IBM PCI Ultra-SCSI Adapter #6206 can be utilized to control the SCSI 6-packs and provide Ultra-SCSI speed when used with the 4.5GB and 9.1GB Ultra-SCSI enabled hard disks. Each Ultra-SCSI enabled 6-pack requires a dedicated PCI Ultra-SCSI adapter. Ultra-SCSI is not supported on the Model F50's integrated SCSI-2 F/W adapters. If Ultra-SCSI is implemented on the first 6-pack, it must be disconnected from the media bays. Feature #2446 provides a cable for connection of the first SCSI 6-pack to the Ultra-SCSI adapter and a terminator for the cable from the media devices when disconnected from the first SCSI 6-pack. Cable feature #2447 is used to connect the second and third 6-packs to their dedicated Ultra-SCSI adapters.

Note: Ultra-SCSI enabled disks perform at SCSI-2 speed if the SCSI 6-packs are connected to the integrated or non-integrated SCSI Fast/Wide adapters, rather than the PCI Ultra-SCSI adapters.

Refer to the Feature Availability Matrix for supported Ultra-SCSI hard disks.

Ultra-SCSI RAID: If an Ultra-SCSI RAID configuration is desired, the PCI Ultra-SCSI Differential adapter (#6207) can be used to support external Ultra-SCSI RAID subsystems. Ultra-SCSI RAID is supported in an under-the-covers configuration via the striping (RAID 0) and mirroring function (RAID 1) of AIX and using the PCI Ultra-SCSI SE adapter (#6206).

Note: Feature number 2493 does not support RAID under-the-covers at ultra speed.

Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) and SSA RAID

The total number of SSA adapters must be no more than 4.

The Model F50 supports both external and under-the-covers SSA disks. Any supported SSA Adapter can be used to control up to three 6-packs of SSA disks. When implementing SSA internally, SSA-enabled hard disks and 6-pack backplanes (#6538 and #6539) are required. SSA disks and backplanes are hot swap capable. The base F50 can be booted from the base SCSI disk in the first 6-pack. SSA boot is also supported when using certain SSA adapters. See the adapter feature description for details. A maximum of one SCSI 6-pack is allowed in configurations including both SSA and SCSI6-pack backplanes. When SSA is desired on the first 6-pack, feature #3116 must be ordered to move the base SCSI disk to a media bay and the first SCSI 6-pack is replaced with an SSA backplane via select feature #6538. Optional SSA backplane feature #6539 is used to implement SSA on the second and third 6-packs.

To optimize performance when more than one PCI SSA adapter is required, it is recommended that each adapter be assigned to a slot supported by an individual SCSI bus. For example, the first PCI SSA adapter could use slots 1 or 2, a second PCI SSA adapter could use slots 3, 4, or 5, and a third PCI SSA adapter could use slots 6, 7, 8, or 9. Two SSA cable options are available. The first cable option (#2450) provides internal cables to internal ports on the PCI SSA adapter to allow connection of up to three SSA 6-packs (up to eighteen SSA drives), all under-the-covers of the Model F50. The second cable option (#2453) provides for the connection of one, two, or three SSA 6-packs in a single loop under-the-covers and exits the rear cover via bulkhead connection to the external ports of the PCI SSA adapter. This cable option will allow additional external SSA devices to be connected in the SSA loop at the point where it exits the rear covers, for a maximum of 48 total devices in the loop. Only one cable (#2450 or 2453) for internal SSA drives can be attached to an SSA adapter.

Note: Feature #6218 does not support an HACMP configuration. Note. The #2450 cable is supported only by SSA adapters #6215 and #6218.

A minimum quantity of two SSA hard disks is required. The first two drives must be located in bays one and five of each 6-pack ordered. A full 6-pack can be configured as well. Should the desired capacity fall short of fully populating a 6-pack, an SSA blank disk drive module is required for each SSA backplane connector that is not occupied with an SSA disk. These blank disk modules will be included for initial plant orders. The SSA Blank Disk Drive Module feature (#2452) must be ordered separately for MES installation of SSA disk subsystems. The SSA blank disk drive module (#2452) must be installed first if it is being used in conjunction with a 1.6-inch 9.1GB SSA hard disk (#3072).

Supported minimum SSA backplane (6-pack) configurations are: Two #3071s with four #2452s Two #3072s with four #2452s One #3071 and one #3072 with four #2452s

The same rules will apply for any subsequently announced SSA disk drives. In summary, the following combinations of features and their respective quantities are allowed per SSA 6-pack backplane, feature number 6538 or 6539:

Disk Drives: The 9.1GB (#2911, #3019, and #3072) disk drives require two bays. This allows for up to three 9.1GB drives maximum per 6-pack.

Hot-swap capability is standard on all supported drives when installed in any of the three SCSI or SSA 6-packs available. The hot-swap capability is enabled via the back planes located within the SCSI or SSA 6-packs.

Memory: IBM memory DIMMs must be installed in pairs. Pairs may be mixed on a memory card. Each F50 supports a maximum of two memory cards. Each memory card supports 16 DIMM slots; the equivalent of 8 DIMM pairs. Individual IBM SDRAM DIMMs in capacities of 32MB and 128MB are supported.

The base system memory configuration is 128MB (#9083), consisting of four 32MB SDRAM ECC DIMMs. A select feature (#4106) can be ordered to replace this base memory. It consists of two 128MB SDRAM ECC DIMMs to provide for a base of 256MB. Additional memory increments of 64MB (#4107) or 256MB (#4110) may also be ordered. Feature number 4107 consists of two 32MB SDRAM ECC DIMMs and feature number 4110 consists of two 128MB DRAM ECC DIMMs.

The second memory card (#4093) must be ordered when the first memory card is fully populated with eight pairs of DIMMs. Memory card feature number 4093 contains no memory DIMMs. Therefore, memory DIMMs must be ordered separately to populate memory card feature number 4093.

A maximum of 3GB of memory is supported and addressable when both memory cards are used. A maximum of 4GB of memory could physically be installed, but is not addressable nor supported.

64-Bit PCI Slots: The Model F50 provides two 64-bit PCI slots. These slots will accommodate either 64-bit or 32-bit PCI adapters. The 32-bit and 64-bit PCI adapters can also be intermixed on the 64-bit PCI bus. The speed is adapter dependent. If both 64-bit slots are used simultaneously, then both adapters will run at the speed of the slowest adapter. The default speed is 33MHz for both 64-bit PCI slots.

Graphics Adapter: There can be a maximum of two graphics adapters installed on the system with AIX Version 4.2.1. The Model F50 provides support for the GXT110P entry-level (#2839) 2D graphics adapter. Feature code #2839 can only be used in I/O slots 3, 4, or 5. This adapter is used in conjunction with graphics consoles as an alternative to ASCII if desired. If an ASCII console is desired it would be supported via serial port S1 and would not require the use of this adapter.

AIX systems may be ordered with or without a keyboard, mouse, or graphics adapter.

     2839       GXT110P       Yes
 

High-Speed Networking Adapters: A maximum of four high- speed networking adapters are supported per system in any combination. This limitation includes the following adapters:

  • 3Com 10/100 Mbps PCI Fast EtherLink XL for PowerPC Systems (#2986)
  • SysKonnect SK-NET FDDI-LP SAS PCI for PowerPC Systems (#2741)
  • SysKonnect SK-NET FDDI-LP DAS PCI for PowerPC Systems (#2742)
  • SysKonnect SK-NET FDDI-UP SAS PCI for PowerPC Systems (#2743)
  • TURBOWAYS 155 ATM Adapter, PCI/Short/32-bit/5 V, 155 MBps (#2988)

AIX Installation: Installation of the AIX operating system is limited to the following methods:

  • By manufacturing with the initial order
  • CD-ROM
  • Via a restore tape made with the AIX command 'mksysb' and a supported 4-mm or 8-mm tape drive

PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor

The PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor (#4958) is not supported in slots 3, 4, and 5.

Hardware Requirements

Either an ASCII terminal with an attachment cable or a graphics display is required for initial setup and must be available locally for service. If an ASCII console is used, it must be attached through serial port S1.

If a graphics adapter is installed, console messages (IPL progress/error information/systems management information) will be directed to the graphics adapter. The system does not detect if a display is attached to the adapter. The user may attach any supported device to the adapter.

If a graphics adapter is not installed, console messages will be directed to serial port S1. The system does not detect if an ASCII console is attached to serial port S1; use of any device other than an ASCII console on serial port S1 will result in lost messages and unpredictable results on that device.

Boot Devices:

The system may be booted from CD-ROM, internal or external hard disk, or network booted using Ethernet (via integrated or #2985, #2968, or #2987) or Token-Ring (#2979) adapters. FDDI adapters (#2741, #2742, or #2743) will support Remote IPL and NIM with the appropriate system firmware. See #2741, #2742, or #2743 description and limitation sections for details. System boot from the PCI RAID adapter (#2493) is not supported.

Cables Required for Use with Displays: Refer to the following table to determine the appropriate IBM cable feature number to order for the Model F50. Note that in some cases, the appropriate cable is either included with the monitor or is ordered with the graphics subsystem.

Feature Descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM RS/6000 7025 machine type.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.

(#2494) PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 1, 2000)

The RS/6000 PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter (#2494) is a non- bootable high-performance Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0, 1, or 5 capability and can address up to forty-five 16-bit SCSI-2 physical disk drives on three independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 32 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 32 MByte fast-write cache is a resident feature of the IBM PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter that utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter failure, a replacement PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter helping to insure data integrity. The 32 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter has one internal and two external independent Ultra2 SCSI buses. The internal port can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on supporting RS/6000 systems. Systems with internal 6-pack disks can attach one PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID adapter per internal 6-pack.The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The two external ports can also connect to the IBM 7131-105 external Fast/Wide SCSI disk enclosure via an optional VHDCI to P Converter Cable (#2118). Note: Even though the PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at Ultra2 SCSI speeds (up to 80 MB per second), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system backplane. Also, the externally attached 7131-105 will only run at a maximum of Fast/Wide SCSI speeds (up to 20 MB per second).

In order for full support and to take full advantage of the Ultra2 (up to 80 MB per second) speed of this adapter, the proper AIX level also needs to be considered. AIX 4.2.1 with appropriate APAR updates and 4.3.3 or later supports the full range of SCSI bus data rates (including Ultra2 SCSI up to 80 MByte per second). AIX 4.3.2 only supports data rates up to 40 MByte per second. Check the AIX level your system has or is able to support. Appropriate AIX APAR needed are as follows:

  • AIX 4.2.1 with APAR IX86638, IX86654, IX87183, IY01945, & IY02373
  • AIX 4.3.2 with APAR IX86395, & IX86396
  • AIX 4.3.3 or later

Upgrading an existing PCI 3-Channel Ultra SCSI RAID Adapter (#2494) to the later version PCI 3-Channel Ultra2 SCSI RAID Adapter is also available after September 24, 1999. To upgrade to the Ultra2 version (up to 80 MB per second capability), a new level of microcode needs to be downloaded. To obtain this later level of microcode (3.12.00 or higher), go to the below Web address and follow the microcode download procedure. AIX levels with appropriate APAR updates described above also apply in conjunction with the microcode upgrade.

(#2498) PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

The RS/6000 PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter(#2498) is a non- bootable high performance Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,1,1E, 5, 5E capability and can address up to sixty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on four independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 128 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 128 MByte fast-write cache is a resident feature of the PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter that utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI

RAID Adapter failure, a replacement PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter insuring data integrity. The 128 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI

RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter has four independent Ultra3 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and four external ports. The two internal ports are shared with two of the external ports. Two of the four busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The other two busses only drive external ports. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on supporting RS/6000 systems. Systems with one or two internal 6-pack disks can attach to a PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter. The four external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The four external ports also provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate.

Limitations:

  • The four external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 external Fast/Wide SCSI disk enclosure.
  • Even though the PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at Ultra3 SCSI speeds (up to 160 MBytes/s) and Ultra2 SCSI speeds (up to 80MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system backplane.

In order for full support and to take full advantage of the Ultra3 (up to 160 MBytes/s) speed of this adapter, the proper AIX level also needs to be considered. AIX 4.3.3 with appropriate APAR updates or later AIX versions support the full range of SCSI bus data rates (including Ultra3 SCSI up to 160 MByte/s). Check the AIX level your system has or is able to support.

(#4951) IBM Four Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

IBM 4-Port 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet PCI Adapter for RS/6000 is a single slot, long, 64-bit 33 MHz PCI adapter supporting 4 industry standard Ethernet 10Base-T or 100 Base-T interfaces either half or full duplex. Each port is provided with it's own RJ-45 connector for attachment to standard CAT-3/5 Unshielded Twisted Pair, UTP cable. The adapter is IEEE 802.3u compatible and provides full auto-negotiation for detecting speed and duplex capability across each port.

Network boot capability and Network Install Manager (NIM) capability are available using this adapter if no specific limitation is stated.

The IBM 4-Port 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet PCI Adapter (#4951) should be considered where maximum port density is required per I/O card slot. But, for high end systems, where card slots are not the limiting factor and maximum throughput is required, the single port IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968) are the preferred solutions.

Below are some performance factors to consider when choosing the right adapter for your needs. These performance comparisons are based on all four ports of the IBM 4-Port 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet PCI Adapter (#4951) being active.

  • With all four ports under full bandwidth conditions, a single IBM 4-Port 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet PCI Adapter (#4951) is expected to deliver up to 3 times the comparable performance of a single IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968).
  • Under most conditions, each port of the IBM 4-Port 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet PCI Adapter (#4951) is expected to perform at greater than 50% the throughput of the single port of the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968).

Note: The resulting performance in your environment compared to the above may vary and depends upon the RS/6000 model, the I/O configuration, and associated workload of your applications.

(#6203) - PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) is a 64 bit adapter and is an excellent solution for high performance SCSI applications. The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter provides 2 SCSI channels (busses). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external and will support a data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second, up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI adapter (80 MBytes per second).

In order to achieve an Ultra3 SCSI bus data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this Ultra3 160 MBytes per second performance, all attaching devices or subsystems should also be Ultra3 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2 and Ultra3 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two industry-standard VHDCI 68 pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket, allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68 pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter.

Note: If any Single Ended (SE) SCSI subsystem is attached to an external port of this adapter, the SCSI port will auto-throttle to a "Fast" interface speed running no faster than 20MB/s max. This auto-throttle function is performed to ensure best signal quality between host adapter and attaching subsystem. The second external port is unaffected unless a SE subsystem is also attached to it. If so, it would also auto-throttle as described above.

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) also is a native boot adapter with AIX 4.3.3 or AIX 5.1 (with appropriate updates) in the supported pSeries or RS/6000 systems.

  • Attributes provided: Attachment of internal SCSI devices (on systems that support an internal SCSI device or backplane attachment with this adapter) and external SCSI devices
  • Attributes required: One available PCI slot
  • For 7025-F50: (#6203)
    • Minimum required: 0
    • Maximum allowed: 9 (Initial order maximum: 9)
    • OS level required: AIX 4.3.3 with AIX Update CD LCD4-0995-14 or later, AIX 5.1 with AIX Update CD LCD4-1103-01 or later.
    • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both

Limitation: This system does not support attachment of internal SCSI drives or backplane to the PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter's internal port. Only external port connections are supported.

(#6205) PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 3, 2001)

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter (#6205) is a 64 bit adapter and is an excellent solution for high performance SCSI applications. The PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter provides 2 SCSI channels (busses). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external and will support a data rate of up to 80 MBytes per second, up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of previous Ultra SCSI adapters (40 MBytes per second).

In order to achieve an Ultra2 SCSI bus data rate of up to 80 MBytes per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. In order to utilize this Ultra2 80 MBytes per second performance, all attaching devices or subsystems must also be Ultra2 LVD devices. If any device is not Ultra2 LVD, the adapter will switch its SCSI bus to single-ended (SE) performance and interface at the lower SE SCSI bus data rate of the device.

Two industry standard VHDCI 68 pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68 pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter.

Note: If any Single Ended (SE) SCSI subsystem is attached to an external port of this adapter, the SCSI ports (both the external port being attached to and its associated or shared internal port) will auto- throttle to a "Fast" interface speed running no faster than 20MB/s max. This auto-throttle function is performed to ensure best signal quality between host adapter and attaching subsystem. The second external port and its associated or shared internal port is unaffected unless a SE subystem is also attached to it. If so, it would also auto-throttle as described above.

Any supported RS/6000 system can be set up to boot from PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter (#6205). If you are running with AIX 4.3.3 or later software, this adapter has native boot support as part of that level of AIX software. If you are running with 4.2.1 software, the below procedure applies in order to boot using the PCI Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI Adapter:

  • The designated boot SCSI disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SCSI storage unit.
  • AIX version 4.2.1 must be loaded to the designated SCSI boot disk usiny AIX's Network Install Manager (NIM) before booting from the SCSI boot disk.
  • The system with a designated SCSI boot disk must have a network connection with another RS/6000 system performing the NIM Master function to perform the install. On RS/6000 SP systems, a similar network install is performed from a control workstation.
  • Once AIX with updates is installed on the designated SCSI boot disk and the system is configured for booting, booting will take place from the boot disk drive without any support from the control processor or NIM Master and the system does not have to be connected to the network at boot time.
  • Attributes provided: Attachment of internal SCSI devices (on systems that support an internal SCSI device or backplane attachment with this adapter) and external SCSI devices
  • Attributes required: One available PCI slot
  • For 7025-F50: (#6205)

(#6206) PCI Single-Ended Ultra SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

Note: If any Single Ended (SE) SCSI subsystem is attached to the external port of this adapter, the SCSI ports (both external and internal) will auto-throttle to a "Fast" interface speed running no faster than 20MB/s max. This auto-throttle function is performed to ensure best signal quality between host adapter and attaching subsystem.

Limitation: Attachment of the IBM 2104 models DL1, TL1, DU3, or TU3 external disk subsystems to the external connector of this SCSI adapter is not supported when any device(s) are attached to the internal connector of the same adapter.

Attributes provided: The PCI Single-Ended Ultra SCSI Adapter (#6206) is an ideal solution for applications requiring large block data transfers (>64K block size) in a multi disk drive environment utilizing SCSI-2 protocol. Feature 6206 has a maximum data transfer rate of 40 MBytes per second, which is twice the maximum data transfer rate of SCSI-2 Fast/Wide adapters (20 MBytes per second). It occupies one PCI slot.

With the use of appropriate optical fiber cabling, this adapter provides the capability for a network of high speed local and remote located storage. The 2 Gigabit Fibre Channel Adapter for 64-bit PCI Bus will auto-negotiate for the highest data rate (either 1Gps or 2Gps) of which the device or switch is capable. Distances of up to 500 meters running at 1Gbps data rate and up to 300 meters running at 2Gbps data rate are supported between the adapter and an attaching device or switch. When used with IBM supported Fibre Channel storage switches supporting long-wave optics, distances of up to 10 kilometers are capable running at either 1Gps or 2Gps data rates.

The 2 Gigabit Fibre Channel Adapter for 64-bit PCI Bus can be used to attach devices either directly, or by means of Fibre Channel Switches. If attaching a device or switch with a SC type fiber connector(s), use of an LC-SC Fibre Channel Conversion Cable (#2456) is required.

(#6230) Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230) is a 4 port (2 loop) Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) adapter providing an instantaneous data transfer rate of up to 160 MByte/s per loop. It also provides eight- initiator, non-RAID capability, two-initiator RAID 1, two-initiator RAID 0+1, two-initiator RAID 5, or one-initiator RAID 0 capability. The adapter accepts a 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) that improves write performance in RAID 0+1, RAID 5, and non-RAID applications. When the 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card is used, the adapter can be configured in either single or dual initiator fast- write cache mode. In dual initiator fast-write cache mode, if one of the two adapters fail, the failing adapter transfers control over to the other. Also, in dual initiator Fast Write Cache mode, the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is available and required to utilize the full 32 MBytes of fast-write cache on the adapters. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card is not used in dual initiator fast-write cache mode, the effective fast-write cache capacity will be 16 MBytes on each adapter. See the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) for information.

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter when operated in a RAID 5 configuration will support (2+P) to (15+P) arrays and up to 6 (15+P) arrays. When operated in a RAID 1 or RAID 0+1 configuration, it will support up to eight disk drives mirrored. The adapter also supports hot spares in RAID 5 and RAID 0+1 mode. The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter supports connectivity to external disk enclosures and internal RS/6000 SSA configurations. Optional SSA Fiber-Optic Extender is also supported (refer to IBM 7133 sales literature for additional information).

Any supported RS/6000 system can be set up to boot from an Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230), provided a non-RAID SSA disk is included as part of the configuration. Other disks associated with the adapter can be RAID but at least one disk must be a non-RAID SSA disk. The non-RAID SSA disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SSA storage unit. If your system is running with AIX 4.3.3 or later software, native boot capability is supported. For factory system orders with AIX preload requested, an internal SCSI disk drive will be preloaded as the native boot disk even if internal SSA disk drive(s) are present. If your system is running with AIX 4.2.1 or AIX 4.3.2 software, the below procedure applies in order to boot using the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter:

  • The non-RAID SSA disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SSA storage unit.
  • A supported AIX version of software (with proper updates) must be loaded to the non-RAID SSA disk using AIX's Network Install Manager (NIM) before booting from the non-RAID disk.
  • The system with a non-RAID SSA disk must have a network connection with another RS/6000 system performing the NIM Master function to perform the install. On RS/6000 SP systems, a similar network install is performed from a control workstation.
  • Once AIX with updates is installed on the non-RAID SSA disk and the system is configured for booting, booting will take place from the boot disk without any support from the control processor or NIM Master and the system does not have to be connected to the network at boot time.

A 3-Way Copy Function will be available. This 3-Way Copy Function allows a user to create a third copy to an existing RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array while mirrored operation continues 3-Way Copy allows the user, at any time after the copy process has completed, to split the third copy off from the original RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array to form an independent RAID copy. This third copy or "snapshot" copy could be typically used to perform a backup or to test some new application. The 3-Way Copy Function is available only via a code download and can only be gained by going to the SSA web support pages defined below.

When performing SSA device or subsystem planning, installation, upgrades, or preventive maintenance, refer to the following Web support pages. They provide access to the latest SSA publications and support code for the system, SSA adapters, and SSA subsystems. These sites should also be considered during system hardware and/or operating system upgrades if SSA devices are included in the system.

(#6231) 128 MByte DRAM Option Card

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is a field only optional feature to the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or a factory or field option for the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230). This option is recommended for dual initiator fail-over Fast Write Cache (FWC) configurations. The option increases the existing DRAM on the adapter to 128 MBytes. In this type of dual initiator FWC configuation, the existing DRAM does not have enough capacity to completely contain a copy of each adapter's 32 MByte FWC and also provide additional working space. The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card provides this additional space needed to contain a full copy of each adapters 32 MByte FWC content and allows for full 32 MByte fail-over protection. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is not used with dual-initiator FWC configurations, the effective FWC capacity is reduced to 16 MBytes per adapter.

If this feature is ordered as a field upgrade to an existing SerialRAID adapter (#6225 or 6230), a CD-ROM with appropriate software and publications are also provided.

  • Attributes provided: 128 MByte DRAM memory

(#6235) 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) is a 32 MByte fast- write optional feature that plugs into the IBM RS/6000 Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter Plus (#6230). It utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an Advanced SerialRAID Adapter failure, a replacement Advanced SerialRAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter helping to ensure data integrity. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card can provide a significant improvement of data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SSA RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement using the optional card will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (# 6225) will operate in either non-RAID or RAID 5 mode, in single-initiator configurations. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (# 6230) will operate in non-RAID, RAID 5, or RAID 0+1 mode, in single- initiator or dual initiator configurations.

(#8136) Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232 (RAN) is a modified version of the existing 16-port Remote Async Node (feature #8130 or 8134) in an industry-standard 19-inch rack mount chassis to allow simpler installation and ease-of-use. Like the existing RAN, it can also be configured as a desktop device.

As an additional benefit, the new metal chassis meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host to meet the needs of customers with these requirements.

The RANs provide 16 ports of EIA-232 capability with full modem controls on each port and are connected to the 128-port Async Controller (Micro Channel or ISA versions) residing in the host. RANs are connected in daisy-chain fashion up to 8 RANs per 128-port Async Controller (either version).

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these enhanced features:

  • Industry-standard 19-inch rack mountable chassis (can be configured for stacking on a desktop or mounted in a 19-inch rack).
  • Meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host.
  • All RJ-45 connectors are now on the front panel, greatly enhancing cable management.
  • The DB-15 synchronous connectors (cabling from host to RAN and between RANs) and the power cord and switch are located on the rear panel.
  • Power supply is self contained within the unit.

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these same features as the existing RAN product:

  • Identical function and support as existing 16-port Remote Async Node (RAN), feature #8130 or 8134.

  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel or ISA host adapter.

  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.

  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.

  • Full modem control supports the following interface signals: TxD, RxD, RTS, CTS, DSR, DCD, DTR, RI.

  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.

  • Individual ports support a maximum EIA-232 distance of 62 meters (200 feet).

  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer-supplied cables.

  • Location of RAN up to 330 meters from the host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.

  • Remote operation via synchronous modems or CSU/DSU extends the distance and allows location of RANs at geographically distant location from the host.
  • Attributes provided: 16 RJ-45 EIA-232 ports AND 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
  • Attributes required: 1 RAN-to-128-port Controller connection OR 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
  • For 7025-F50:

(#8137) Enhanced Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

Provides remote connection of up to 16 EIA-232 devices to a 128-Port Asynchronous Controller.

Each port can be individually programmed to provide a asynchronous connection of 230 Kbaud, but a limited number of ports in a maximum configuration (128 ports) can be supported at this baud rate. When connected to the newly announced PCI controller, a synchronous channel data rate of 2.4 Mbps is used. If connected to the existing MCA or ISA controllers, the synchronous channel runs at the previous 1.2 Mbps data rate.

  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel, ISA or PCI host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
  • Full modem control supports the following interface signals: TxD, RxD, RTS, CTS, DSR, DCD, DTR, RI.
  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.
  • Individual ports support a maximum EIA-232 distance of up to 31 meters (100 feet), depending on the baud rate.
  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer supplied cables.
  • Location of RAN up to 90 meters (sync data rate set at 2.4 Mbps) from host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.

(#8138) Enhanced Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port RS-422

(No Longer Available as of July 31, 2001)

Provides remote connection of up to 16 RS-422 devices to a 128-Port Asynchronous Controller.

Each port can be individually programmed to provide a asynchronous connection of 230 Kbaud, but a limited number of ports in a maximum configuration (128 ports) can be set at this baud rate. When connected to the newly announced PCI controller, a synchronous channel data rate of 2.4 Mbps is used. If connected to the existing MCA or ISA controllers, the synchronous channel runs at the previous 1.2 Mbps data rate.

  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel, ISA or PCI host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
  • Supports the following interface signals: +TxD, +RxD, -TxD, -RxD.
  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.
  • Individual ports support a maximum RS-422 distance of up to 1200 meters (3930 feet), depending on the baud rate.
  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer supplied cables.
  • Location of RAN up to 90 meters (sync data rate set at 2.4 Mbps) from host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.
  • Remote operation via synchronous modems or CSU/DSU extends the distance and allows location of RANs at geographically distant location from the host.
