Model abstract 7028-6E4

The 7028 IBM eServer pSeries 630 Model 6E4 is a Deskside/Desktop Server. The Model 6E4 provides the power, capacity, and expandability required for e-business computing. It offers 64-bit scalability via the 64-bit POWER4 or POWER4+ processor packaged as 1-way and 2-way cards. With its two-processor positions, the Model 6E4 can be configured into 1-, 2-or 4-way configurations. The processor cards operate at 1.0 GHz with 32 MB of L3 cache per processor card, or 1.2 and 1.45 GHz with 8 MB of L3 cache per processor. Memory DIMMs are mounted on the CPU card and can contain up to 32 GB of memory. The Model 6E4 contains six bays. The four front-accessible, hot-swap capable bays can accommodate up to 587.2 GB of disk storage.

Other integrated features include:

  • Four hot-swap, 64-bit PCI-X slots with 1.0 GHz processor systems, Six hot-swap, 64-bit PCI-X slots with 1.2 and 1.45 GHz processor systems.

  • Service processor

  • Two 10/100 ethernet ports

  • Two Ultra3 SCSI ports (internal/external)

  • Three serial ports and one parallel port

  • Keyboard and mouse ports

  • Optional hot-swap fans

  • Optional redundant hot-swap ac or power

Support of Logical Partitioning (LPAR) is available on the Models 6E4 and 6C4. LPAR enables you to split a Model 6E4 system into three LPARs and the Model 6C4 into as many as four LPARs. Each LPAR functions as a "computer within a computer" with its instance of the operating system.

The IBM eServer Cluster 1600 is enhanced to include the p630 server within the available cluster building blocks. This server is now available as both an initial option and a field addition to the IBM eServer Cluster 1600.

The IBM eServer pSeries delivers cluster-ready servers, which can scale up to 128 servers (p690, p680, p670, p660, and p630) and up to 128 operating system images.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Reliability, Fault Tolerance, and Data Integrity

Excellent quality and reliability features are the keys to all facets of IBM eServer pSeries products. The measures taken help ensure the products operate when required, perform reliably, efficiently handle infrequent failures in a nondisruptive fashion, and provide timely and competent repair to allow resumption of operations with minimal inconvenience.

Reliability begins with the development of architectures, where RAS innovations are of paramount importance. The reliability concept flows through design and product development stages, where RAS designs are reviewed, assessed, developed, evaluated, and optimized. It continues through the manufacturing and release processes, where the manufacturing quality is extensively measured and is under continual evaluation. It culminates in service and support, where:

  • Reliability is consistently monitored for deviation from the criteria.
  • Warranty and maintenance have high priority.
  • Significant customer problems are assigned to and addressed by an expert team.

IBM eServer pSeries 630 system processes, from the architectural and concept phases of development through the provision of service and support, are ISO certified and audited periodically for ISO compliance by representatives of Underwriters Laboratories.

RAS features such as ECC (error checking and correcting) on the L1 data cache and L2 data and directory caches can provide dynamic detection and correction of hard or soft array cell failures. Dynamic de- allocation functions include:

  • L3 cache line delete and L2 cache de-allocation
  • Individual L3 cache memory bypass
  • CPU de-allocation

Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing capability are also provided by the AIX operating system.

The Journaled File System of the AIX operating system maintains file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.

First-Failure Data Capture

  • Concurrent run-time diagnostics based on First-Failure Data Capture, providing the ability to correctly diagnose problems in a computer, is the bedrock capability upon which availability is based. The Models 6E4 and 6C4 provide state of the art capability in IPL and initialization diagnostics, based on internal test procedures and in run-time first- failure diagnostics.

PCI Extended Error Handling (EEH)

  • In the past, PCI Bus Parity errors caused a global machine check interrupt, which eventually required a system reboot to continue. In the Model 6E4 and 6C4 systems, new I/O drawer hardware, system firmware, and AIX interaction has been designed to allow transparent recovery of intermittent PCI bus parity errors, and graceful transition to the I/O device available state in the case of a permanent parity error in the PCI bus. This mechanism is called the PCI Extended Error Handling (EEH). EEH enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot.

Dynamic Processor Deallocation

  • On Model 6E4 and 6C4 4-way systems, predictive failure analysis is performed on recoverable processor errors during run-time. If a processor exceeds a threshold of recoverable errors such as on an L3 cache access, the event is logged and the processor will be marked and deconfigured from the system while the operating system continues to run. This feature allows the processor to be repaired on a deferred basis while helping to prevent an unscheduled system outage.

Note: Dynamic Processor Deallocation is effective on systems with two or more functional processors and with AIX 5L Version 5.2. AIX 5L Version 5.1 requires three or more functional processors in order to have the feature running properly.

Memory Error Correction Extensions

  • The standard memory card has single error-correct and double-error detect ECC circuitry to correct single-bit memory failures. The double- bit detection helps maintain data integrity by detecting and reporting multiple errors beyond what the ECC circuitry can correct. The memory chips are organized such that the failure of any specific memory module only affects a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering) thus allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete chip failure (Chipkill recovery).

  • Memory card also utilizes memory scrubbing and thresholding to determine when spare memory modules (if available) within each bank of memory should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value (dynamic bit steering).

Redundancy for Array Self-healing

  • While the most likely failure event in a processor is a soft single bit error in one of its caches, there are other events which can occur, and which need to be distinguished from one another. For the L1, L2, L3 caches and their directories, hardware and firmware keeps track of whether permanent errors are being corrected beyond a threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional run-time availability actions, such as CPU vary off, or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated. L1, L2 caches and L2, L3 directories on the POWER4 chip are manufactured with spare bits in their arrays which can be accessed via programmable steering logic to replace faulty bits in the respective arrays. This is analogous to the redundant bit steering employed in main store as a mechanism to avoid physical repair that is also implemented in POWER4 systems. The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the Built-in System Test (BIST) at Power On time. L3 cache redundancy is implemented at the cache line granularity level. Exceeding correctable error thresholds while running causes invocation of a dynamic L3 cache line delete function, capable of up to 2 deletes per cache. In the rare event of solid bit errors exceeding this quantity, the cache continues to run, but a message calling for deferred repair is issued. If the system is rebooted without such repair, the L3 cache is placed in bypass mode, and the system comes up with this cache deconfigured.

Service Processor

  • A Service Processor included in the Models 6E4 and 6C4 gives you an immediate means to diagnose, check status, and sense operational conditions of a remote system, even when the main processor is inoperable.

  • The Service Processor enables firmware and operating system surveillance, several remote power controls, environmental monitoring, reset, and boot features along with remote maintenance and diagnostic activities, including console mirroring. The Service Processor can place calls to report surveillance failures, critical environmental faults, and critical processing faults.

Fault Monitoring Functions

  • BIST (Built-in self-test) and POST (Power-on self-test) check processor, L2 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system, every time the system is powered on. If a non-critical error is detected or if the errors occur in the resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the booting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are logged in the system non-volatile RAM (NVRAM).

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

  • AIX log facility (where hardware and software failures are recorded and analyzed by Error Log Analysis (ELA) routine) gives a warning to the system administrator on the causes of system problems. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along probable replacement hardware components when a service call is placed, thus minimizing system repair time.

  • PCI hot-swap slot fault tracking helps prevent slot errors from causing a system machine check interrupt and subsequent reboot. This provides superior fault isolation and the error affects only the single adapter. Repair time is reduced because isolation is to the specific adapter and PCI hot-swap allows concurrent repair of that card without affecting other adapters.

Mutual Surveillance

  • The Service Processor can monitor the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and it can monitor the operating system for loss of control. It also allows the operating system to monitor for Service Processor activity. The Service Processor can take appropriate action, including calling for service, when it detects the firmware or the operating system has lost control. Likewise, the operating system can request a Service Processor repair action if necessary.

Environmental Monitoring Functions

  • Temperature monitoring -- increases the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range.

  • Temperature monitoring -- warns the system administrator of potential environmental related problems (for example, air conditioning and air circulation around the system) so that appropriate corrective actions can be taken before a critical failure threshold is reached, and to control an orderly system shutdown when operating temperature exceeds the critical level.

  • Fan speed monitoring -- activates a warning and an orderly system shutdown when the speed is out of operational specification.

  • Voltage monitoring -- activates a warning and an orderly system shutdown when the voltages are out of operational specification.

Error Handling and Reporting

  • In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally-induced failure, the system "Run-time Error Capture" capability is designed to systematically analyze the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully rebooted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the AIX operating system. Error Log Analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of failing hardware.

  • With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to send out an alert automatically via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the two "Attention Indicators" (one located on the front of the system unit and the other on the rear of the system unit) to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be turned on by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the indicator will flash while an error condition will cause the indicator to be on continuously.

  • The System Operator Panel Display is a vacuum fluorescent display that is located on the operator panel of all pSeries systems. The display helps with system bring-up and diagnosis by pinpointing the feature (memory, I/O adapter, or other component) that is not seated correctly, is missing, or is not working. This saves valuable system administrator debug time. The operator panel display provides system boot progress indicators and any error code information that the system may encounter prior to system control passing to AIX.

    The system operator panel display helps with diagnostics by allowing quick identification of the error condition for repair by the customer or customer engineer.

Availability Enhancement Functions

  • On-line (Concurrent) Diagnostics with ELA and Service Aids allows administrators or IBM service representatives to diagnose potential system malfunctions without interrupting end-user operation.

  • The auto-restart (reboot) option, when enabled, can reboot the system automatically following an unrecoverable software error, software hang, hardware failure, or environmentally-induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

  • The p630 Models 6E4 and 6C4 are designed for customer setup of the machine and for subsequent addition of most features (adapters/devices). For a fee, IBM Service can perform the installation.

  • The Models p630 6E4 and 6C4 have been designed to allow customers to replace service parts (Customer Replaceable Unit) if they desire to do so. To accomplish this, the Models 6E4 and 6C4 have incorporated FRU LEDs that can be used to identify the part needing to be replaced.

  • The Models p630 6E4 and 6C4 allow support personnel to remotely log into a system to review error logs and perform remote maintenance. The Models 6E4 and 6C4 Service Processor enable the analysis of a system that will not boot.

  • The diagnostics consist of Stand-alone Diagnostics, which are loaded from the CD-ROM drive, and Online Diagnostics.

  • Online Diagnostics, when installed, are resident with AIX on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX Error Log and the AIX Configuration Data.

    • Service mode allows checking of system devices and features.

    • Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.

    • Maintenance mode allows checking of most system resources.

  • The System Management Services (SMS) error log is accessible from the SMS menu for tests performed through SMS programs. The Service Processor error log is accessible from the Service Processor menu for results of Service Processor tests.

    Note: Since the 7028-6E4 and 6C4 systems have an optional diskette drive (#2605) alternate methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available for use if the diskette drive is not ordered; an external internet connection must be available to maintain or update system firmware and microcode to the latest required level.

Electronic Service Agent

  • Available at no additional charge. When installed on the pSeries, the Electronic Service Agent can enhance IBM's ability to offer the system with maintenance service.

  • Monitors and analyzes system errors, and if needed, can place a service call automatically to IBM without customer intervention.

  • Can reduce the effect of business disruptions due to unplanned system outages and failures.

  • Performs problem analysis on a subset of hardware-related problems and, with customer authorization, can report automatically the results to IBM Service.

Online Customer Support (OCS)

  • OCS for hardware problem reporting may be performed via remote login by pSeries specialists using normal AIX facilities. The Electronic Service Agent software can also be used for this capability.

  • AIX Support offerings will be under AIXSERV and Electronic Service Agent.

Product positioning

The IBM eServer pSeries 630 Models 6E4 and 6C4 are UNIX servers for customers looking for a cost-effective, high-performance UNIX server. These are customers who are attracted to the p660 but do not require the overall performance or scaling.

The Model 6C4 is an ideal replacement for the current successful Model B80. The Model 6E4 is an ideal replacement for the Model 270. Both systems use the POWER4 or POWER4+ technology, have four hot-swap PCI-X slots with the 1.0 GHz processor or six hot-swap PCI-X slots with the 1.2 or 1.45 GHz processors, four front accessible hot-swap disk bays, and can accommodate up to 32 GB of ECC memory. Two media bays are available for a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVDRAM, diskette, or tape drive. Integrated features include two 10/100 Ethernet ports, two Ultra3 SCSI (internal and external) ports, three serial, one parallel, two HMC, keyboard, and mouse ports.

Reliability improvements help make the Models 6E4 and 6C4 very competitive. Its CPU de-allocation function enables the system to detect failing processors and take them off-line without re-booting the system. The service processor can record this action and notify the system administrator or service personnel of the condition. Computing operation continues with the processor deactivated, allowing repair to be scheduled at a time convenient to your processing schedule. Hot-plug functionality of the PCI I/O subsystem is designed to bring new levels of up-time to your system for the replacement or addition of I/O adapters. Selective disablement of an adapter can be made as necessary while system operations not dependent on this adapter continue to run without being affected.

High availability continues to be an ongoing and growing need for customers. IBM continues its tradition of providing high-availability solutions with the Models 6E4 and 6C4, which can be ordered in a high- availability configuration with a choice of components.

Logical Partitioning

  • Feature number #9575 or #6576 is required on the Model 6E4 or 6C4 to run LPAR.

  • AIX V5.1 environments running in a p630 LPAR require a re-activation (reboot) of the affected partition when an LPAR is redefined.

  • AIX V5.2 environments running in a p630 LPAR can be redefined dynamically without a partition re-activation when non-critical resources and non-ISA resources are involved.

  • The pSeries 630 Model 6E4 can be divided into three LPARs if the system has 6 I/O slots. Only two LPARs are possible in systems with 4 I/O slots. The Model 6C4 can be divided into as many as four LPARs. System resources can be dedicated to the LPARs.

    • One integrated Ethernet controller and 2 I/O slots must be assigned to a single partition. Since the 7311-D20 I/O Expansion Drawer is not supported on the Model 6E4, two I/O slots are required for each additional partition, one for an Ethernet adapter and one for an external disk connection.

  • LPAR allocation, monitoring, and control is provided by the Hardware Management Console (7315-C01).

  • Each LPAR functions under its own instance of the operating system.

  • A minimum of one processor is required per LPAR.

  • A minimum of 768 MB of system memory is required per LPAR.
    • 768 MB is required for system overhead
    • 1.5 GB will support 2 partitions
    • 3 GB will support four partitions

    Note: While it is not required, 2 GB of system memory is recommended per LPAR to ensure adequate memory is available.

  • One LAN adapter (minimum) per partition (HMC requirement). Two integrated ethernet ports can be used to support two partitions.

  • I/O adapters in PCI slots may be allocated to an LPAR in the following manner:

    • Slots 1 and 2 must be allocated to the same partition. This partition must also have:
      • Three integrated serial ports
      • Keyboard and mouse ports
      • Integrated dual Ultra3 SCSI ports
      • Any IDE media device
      • One of the integrated Ethernet ports

    • Slots 3 and 4 can be allocated to different partitions. To support four partitions, one 7311-D20 is required.

  • If a SCSI DVD-RAM is installed in the system, the DVD-RAM can be defined to any partition for install purposes. If no DVD-RAM is in the system, a NIM connection must be available to all partitions but the first. For network diagnostics, a NIM connection is always required in all partitions but the first. A SCSI adapter is required to drive the DVD-RAM. The DVD-RAM cannot be installed in slot 1 or 2 if the DVD-RAM is to be shared.

  • Feature numbers 2842 and 2843 are not supported in LPARs.

  • Parallel port is not available in LPAR mode.

  • At least one disk must be allocated to each LPAR.

  • All DASD in the Model 6E4 and 6C4 must be allocated to one partition.

    • One 7311-D20 Expansion Drawer can be used to support two additional partitions on the Model 6C4. Two Model D20s support four partitions. Each partition attaching to a Model D20 requires a SCSI adapter in that partition if attaching to one of the two internal 6-packs.

    • The 7133-xxx Serial Storage Devices can be used to support three additional partitions on the Model 6C4.

    • The 2104-xxx Expandable Storage Devices can be used to support two additional partitions on the Model 6C4. Two 2104s support four partitions.

Remote I/O Cables

When Remote I/O Cables (#3147 and #3148) are on the same order as the p630 and the Model D20, they must be ordered on the Model D20. On stand- alone p630 orders, Remote I/O Cables are optional.

IBM Hardware Management Console for pSeries

  • The IBM Hardware Management Console for pSeries (HMC) (7315-C01) provides a set of functions that are necessary to manage the pSeries 630 and LPAR configurations. These functions include:

    • Create and store LPAR profiles, which define the processor, memory, and I/O resources allocated to an individual partition.

    • Start, stop, and reset a system partition.

    • Boot a partition or system by selecting a profile.

    • Display system and partition status.

    • Display the contents of a virtual operator panel for each partition or controlled system.

  • The HMC also provides a service focal point for the system it controls. It is connected to the service processor of the system via a dedicated serial link. The HMC provides tools for problem determination and service support, such as call-home and error-log notification through an analog phone line.

  • The HMC is a dedicated function device. It is utilized only for the control and service functions of the pSeries servers it serves. It is not available for use as a general purpose computing resource.

  • Each HMC must be configured with a graphics display and a keyboard. Various native language keyboards are available for the HMC. However, the HMC displays menus and control information in English regardless of the keyboard utilized.

  • A mouse is included with each HMC and is not required to be ordered separately.

  • One HMC (7315-C01) can control up to 16 pSeries servers and a maximum of 32 LPARs. Information regarding HMC control of clustered servers can be found in the SCALING STATEMENT section of the Family 9078+01 IBM eServer Cluster 1600, 9078-160 Sales Manual pages.

  • If redundant HMC function is desired, the pSeries 630 can be attached to two separate hardware management consoles.

  • An Ethernet connection between the HMC and each active partition on the pSeries server is recommended. This connection is utilized to provide:

    • Additional systems management such as WebSM management of AIX in the individual partitions.

    • Collection and passing of hardware service events to the HMC for automatic notification of error conditions to IBM.

    • Total system inventory collection.

  • The HMC provides two integrated serial ports. One serial port is required for each pSeries server controlled by the HMC. An additional serial port is required for modem attachment if the Service Agent call- home function is implemented. When more than two serial ports are required, 8-port (#2943) and 128-port (#2944) asynchronous adapters should be utilized.

  • Up to two 8-port or 128-port asynchronous adapters are allowed per HMC.

Audio

  • Audio is not supported on the Model 6E4.

Note: (1) When #2842 or #2843 is also installed in the system.

I/O Adapters

  • The PCI Advanced SerialRAID Plus adapter (#6230) can be selected with or without the Fast-Write Cache Option card (#6235).

  • The SSA Fast-Write Cache Option card (#6235) is a cache upgrade for the SSA Advanced SerialRAID Plus adapter (#6230) and can only be selected along with that adapter (maximum of one per #6230).

  • The Ultra3 SCSI RAID adapter (#2498) cannot be placed in slot #4.
    • Feature number 8397 must be placed in Slot 3. Slot 4 will be unavailable.

  • Refer to Figure 3 for additional I/O adapter limitations.

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

(No Longer Available as of December 12, 2003)

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, or 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 to help ensure 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.

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 Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) 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 the IBM 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 Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) being active.

  • With all four ports under full bandwidth conditions, a single IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) is expected to deliver up to 3 times the comparable performance of a single IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968).
  • Under most conditions, each port of the IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) 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 the IBM 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.

(#5703) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter (#5703) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt, bootable high performance Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,5, or 10 capability and can address up to thirty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on two independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 40 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 40 MByte fast-write cache is resident on the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and utilizes non-volatile RAM. The 40 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 Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has two independent ultra320 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and two external ports. The two internal ports are shared with the two external ports. The SCSI busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on certain supporting pSeries systems with internal multiple disk drives or packs of drives. Internally attached Ultra320 devices are designed to run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 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 to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

When an array configuration is selected with the RAID Manager, the disk drives being designated as part of the array (attached to either the internal or external ports) are required to be formatted to 522 byte sectors. 522 byte sectors provide additional CRC error checking for improved data integrety. A menu option is provided in the AIX supporting software which will reformat these disk drives prior to their usage in an array. Conversely, when a disk drive is removed from an array, a similar menu option is also provided to re-format them back to 512 byte sectors.

Note: Some disk drives require that their microcode be updated to the latest level before being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors.

Also, there are some disk drives which do not support being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors. The PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager will inform the user of these known situations when they exist. For disk microcode updates, go to the following Web page URL:

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/mdownload/

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 devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DS4 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TS4 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 320 MB/s SCSI bus data rate configured as either a non-array or an array of disks. Also the two external ports provide non-array connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

Limitations:

  • The two 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 as well as 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, but is limited to only non-array configuration support.
  • The two external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 IBM Multi-Storage Tower Model 105.
  • Even though the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system disk backplane.
  • Disk drives internal to the pSeries system shipped prior to September 1, 2003 require a disk drive microcode update to run at Ultra320 speed. To obtain the appropriate microcode update, go to the following web page URL:

(#5712) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5712) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.), up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI adapter (160 MBps). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external. Internally attached Ultra320 devices can run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 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 to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two 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 devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/Web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

Limitations:

Even though the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI nonRAID Adapter has ports that run at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system disk backplane.

(#5737) PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of August 28, 2009)

The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID LVD only Adapter (#5737) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt, bootable high performance Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0, 5, 6, or 10 capability, and can address up to thirty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on two independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 90 MByte non-volatile fast-write cache is a resident part of this adapter. The 90 MByte fast-write cache can provide a 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 Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has two independent ultra320 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and two external ports. The two internal ports are shared with the two external ports. The SCSI busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on certain supporting pSeries systems with internal multiple disk drives or packs of drives. Internally attached Ultra320 devices designed to run at 320 MB can run up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. All attaching devices should be Ultra320 LVD devices to utilize the 320 MB per second performance, however, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. This card does not support single-ended (SE) devices.

When an array configuration is selected with the RAID Manager, the disk drives being designated as part of the array (attached to either the internal or the external ports) are required to be formatted to 522-byte sectors. 522-byte sectors provide additional CRC error checking for improved data integrity. A menu option provide in the AIX supporting software, which will reformat these disk drives prior to their usage in an array. Conversely, when a disk drive is removed from an array, a similar menu option is also provided to re-format them back to 512-byte sectors. Note: Some disk drives require that their microcode be updated to the latest level before being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors. In addition, there are some disk drives, which do not support 522 Byte Sectors format. The PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager will inform the user of these known situations when they exist. For disk microcode updates, go to the following Web page URL:

(#6203) PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 12, 2003)

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 two 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 maximum. 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

(#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 is designed to transfer 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, 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 also 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.

After October 3, 2000, 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 configuration, 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.

(#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 insuring 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 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 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 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 7028-6E4: (#8136)

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.

  • 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.
