Description

The IBM Power 710 Express server is a 2U rack-mount server with one processor socket offering 4-core 3.0 GHz, 6-core 3.7 GHz, and 8-core 3.55 GHz configurations.

The IBM Power 730 Express server delivers the outstanding performance of the POWER7 processor in a dense, rack-optimized form factor and is ideal for running multiple application and infrastructure workloads in a virtualized environment. Take advantage of the Power 730 Express servers' scalability and capacity by leveraging our industrial-strength PowerVM technology to fully utilize the server's capability.

The IBM Power 730 Express server is a 2U rack-mount server with two processor sockets offering 8-core 3.0 and 3.7 GHz, 12-core 3.7 GHz, and 16-core 3.55 GHz configurations.

The Power 710 Express server supports a maximum of eight DDR3 DIMM slots, with four DIMM slots included in the base configuration and four DIMM slots available with an optional memory riser card, allowing for a maximum system memory of 64 GB. The Power 730 Express server supports a maximum of 16 DDR3 DIMM slots, with four DIMM slots included in the base configuration and 12 DIMM slots available with a maximum of three optional memory riser cards, allowing for a maximum system memory of 128 GB.

Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 4, GB, 8 GB and 16 GB and run at speeds of 1066 MHz. Also, the optional Active Memory Expansion can allow the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory. Innovative compression/decompression of memory content using processor cycles can allow memory expansion up to 100%. A server with a maximum of 128 GB can effectively be expanded up to 256 GB. This can enhance virtualization and server consolidation by allowing a partition to do significantly more work with the same physical amount of memory or a server to run more partitions and do more work with the same physical amount of memory.

The Power 710 and 730 Express servers offer three storage backplane options. The first supports three SFF SAS hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs), an SATA DVD, and a half-high tape drive. The second supports six SFF SAS HDDs/SSDs and an SATA DVD. The third supports six SFF SAS HDDs/SSDs, an SATA DVD, Dual Write Cache RAID, and an external SAS port. HDDs/SSDs are hot-swap and front accessible.

Also available in the Power 710 and Power 730 system units is a choice of quad gigabit or dual 10 Gb integrated host Ethernet adapters. These native ports can be selected at the time of initial order. Virtualization of these integrated Ethernet adapters is supported.

Other integrated features include:

  • Four PCIe x8 Low Profile expansion slots
  • One GX++ slot on the Power 710 and two GX++ slots on the Power 730 for 4X connections

IBM Editions

IBM Editions are available only as initial order.

If you order a Power 710 or Power 730 Express server IBM Edition as defined below, you can qualify for half the initial configuration's processor core activations at no additional charge.

The total memory (based on the number of cores) and the quantity/size of disk, SSD, Fibre Channel adapters, or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapters shipped with the server are the only features that determine if a customer is entitled to a processor activation at no additional charge.

Specifically, with an IBM Edition, processor activations for the processor module options are:

Power 710

  • 3.0 GHz 4-core processor module (#8350)
    • 2 x #8360 (chargeable) and 2 x #8363 (no-charge) with 4-core (1 x #8350) configuration

    • 8 x #8372 (chargeable) and 8 x #8375 (no-charge) with 16-core (2 x #8359) configuration

When you purchase an IBM Edition, you can purchase an AIX, IBM i, or Linux operating system license, or you may choose to purchase the system with no operating system. The AIX, IBM i, or Linux operating system is processed via a feature number on AIX 5.3, 6.1, or 7.1; IBM i 6.1.1 or IBM i 7.1; and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. If you choose AIX 5.3, 6.1 or 7.1 for your primary operating system, you can also order IBM i 6.1.1 or IBM i 7.1 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The converse is true if you choose an IBM i or Linux subscription as your primary operating system.

Processor modules and processor activations are only available to Solution Delivery Integration (SDIs) as MES orders.

IBM Edition minimum memory definition details:

A minimum of 1 GB memory per core on the 4-core Power 710 (#8350), 2 GB memory per core on the 6-and 8-core Power 710 (#8349 and #8359), and 4 GB memory per core on the Power 730 is needed to qualify for the IBM Edition, except on the 6-core IBM Edition where there is a 16 GB minimum memory requirement for the Power 710."

For example:

Power 710

  • 4-core (4 GB minimum) -- 1 x 4 GB (2 x 2 GB DIMMs) memory (#4525). Also 1 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) or 1 x 16 GB (2 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)

  • 6-core (16 GB minimum) -- 4 x 4 GB (2 x 2 GB DIMMs) memory (#4525). Also 2 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) or 1 x 16 GB (2 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)"

  • 8-core (16 GB minimum)-- 4 x 4 GB (2 x 2 GB DIMMs) memory (#4525). Also 2 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) or 1 x 16 GB (2 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)

Power 730

  • 8-core (32 GB minimum) -- 8 x 4 GB (2 x 2 GB DIMMs) memory (#4525). Also 4 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) or 2 x 16 GB (2 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)

  • 12-core (48 GB minimum) -- 6 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) Also, 3 x 16 GB (3 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)

  • 16-core (64 GB minimum)-- 8 x 8 GB (2 x 4 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4526) Also, 4 x 16 GB (4 x 8 GB DIMMs) Memory (#4527)

Edition minimum Disk/SSD/Fibre Channel/FCoE definition details

  • Minimum of: Two HDD, or two SSD, or two Fibre Channel adapters, or two FCoE adapters. You only need to meet one of these disk/SSD/FC/FCoE criteria. Partial criteria cannot be combined.

    • Two SAS HDDs -- any capacity drives located in the system unit or feature 5886 disk drawer qualify.

    • Two SAS SSDs -- any capacity drives located in the system unit or feature 5886 disk drawer qualify.

    • Two SSD Modules with eMLC (#1995/#1996)-- modules located in the system unit with feature 2053 qualify.

    • Two Fibre Channel PCI-e adapters located in the system unit.

    • Two Fibre Channel over Ethernet PCI-e adapters located in the system unit.

These sample configurations can be changed as needed and still qualify for processor entitlements at no additional charge. However, selection of total memory or HDD/SSD/Fibre Channel/FCoE adapter quantities smaller than the totals defined as the minimums disqualifies the order as an IBM Edition and the no-charge processor activations are then removed.

Multiple sample POWER7 IBM Edition configurations are provided in the IBM internal configurator tool, including:

  • 3.0 GHz 4-core processor module
  • 3.7 GHz 4-core processor module
  • 3.7 GHz 6-core processor module
  • 3.55 GHz 8-core processor module

Dynamic logical partitioning

The dynamic logical partitioning (LPAR) function provides enhanced resource management for the Power 710 and Power 730 Express servers. Dynamic LPAR allows available system resources to be quickly and easily configured across multiple logical partitions to meet the rapidly changing needs of your business.

Dynamic LPAR also allows you to add new system resources such as new HDDs or SSDs into your system's configuration without requiring a reboot. Without the optional PowerVM Standard Edition (#5227) or PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#5228) feature, as many as eight LPARs are supported in an 8-core Power 710 and 16 LPARs are supported in an 16-core Power 730. If the PowerVM Standard or Enterprise Edition feature is installed in the system, a maximum of 10 dynamic LPARs for each physical processor can be defined, with a Power 710 system maximum of 80 dynamic LPARs and a Power 730 system maximum of 160 dynamic LPARs.

An HMC or IVM is required to manage POWER7 processor-based servers implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER7 processor-based servers can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER7 processor-based server, the HMC must be a CR3, or later, model rack-mount HMC or C05, or later, deskside HMC.

When IBM Systems Director is used to manage an HMC or if the HMC manages more than 254 partitions, the HMC should have 3 GB of RAM minimum and be CR3 model, or later, rack-mount or C06, or later, deskside.

PowerVM Editions (optional)

Three optional PowerVM Edition features are now available on the Power 710 and Power 730: PowerVM Express Edition, PowerVM Standard Edition, and PowerVM Enterprise Edition. These are managed using built-in Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) software or optionally through use of an HMC.

PowerVM Standard Edition (#5227) and PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#5228) allow customers to create partitions in units of less than 1 CPU (sub-CPU LPARs) and allow the same system I/O to be virtually added to these partitions. The optional features, available for a fee, also include a software component that provides cross-partition workload management.

PowerVM Standard and Enterprise Editions offer:

  • Micro-Partitioning (up to 10 partitions per processor core, 80 per Power 710 system and 160 per Power 730 system)

  • Virtualized disk and optical devices (VIOS)

  • Automated CPU reconfiguration

  • Real-time partition configuration and load statistics

  • Support for dedicated and shared processor LPAR groups

  • Support for manual provisioning of resources

At initial order entry, selecting feature number 5227 or 5228 will result in Micro-Partitioning to be enabled during manufacture and the enabling software media and publications to be shipped to the customer. When ordering feature number 5227 or 5228 as an MES, an activation key will be posted on an IBM website, and the customer must retrieve it and install it on the system.

The IBM website is

Other features of PowerVM Editions:

  • If any processors in a system have the Virtualization feature, all active processors must have it.

  • Once the Virtualization feature is installed in a system, it cannot be removed.

  • Virtual Ethernet and Virtual Storage are part of PowerVM Editions.

PowerVM Enterprise Edition also includes Live Partition Mobility, which allows for the movement of a logical partition from one POWER6 or POWER7 server to another with no application downtime, and Active Memory Sharing, which dynamically reallocates memory between running logical partitions on a server. Also available is PowerVM Express (#5225), designed for users looking for an introduction to more advanced virtualization features at a highly affordable price. With PowerVM Express and IVM, users can create up to three partitions on the server, leverage (VIOS), utilize Shared Dedicated Capacity to help optimize use of processor cycles, and even try out the Shared Processor Pool. With its intuitive browser-based interface, IVM is easy to use and helps reduce the time and effort required to manage virtual devices, processors, and partitions. An HMC is not required.

Note: PowerVM 2.1.2.11 with Fix Pack 22.1 and Service Pack 1, or later, and a supported AIX or Linux operating system level are minimum requirements for performing Live Partition Mobility functions on POWER7. Refer to the Software Requirements section for more information on minimum AIX and Linux operating system levels.

Note: Active Memory Sharing is planned to be supported with the availability of SLES 11 SP1.

Customers can upgrade from PowerVM Express to either PowerVM Standard or PowerVM Enterprise, or they can upgrade from PowerVM Standard to PowerVM Enterprise.

By upgrading to PowerVM Standard or PowerVM Enterprise, users gain the ability to create up to 80 logical partitions on the Power 710 or up to 160 logical partitions on the Power 730. Users also gain the ability to manage their PowerVM enabled machine with either an HMC or the Integrated Virtualization Manager.

By upgrading to PowerVM Enterprise, users can leverage Live Partition Mobility and Active Memory Sharing.

I/O drawer availability

One disk-only I/O drawer is supported, providing large storage capacity and multiple partition support:

  • Feature 5886 EXP12S holds 3.5-inch SAS disk or SSD.

EXP 12S SAS Drawer (#5886)

The EXP 12S SAS Drawer (#5886) is a 2 EIA drawer and mounts in a 19-inch rack. The drawer can hold either SAS HDDs or SSD. The EXP 12S SAS drawer has twelve 3.5-inch SAS disk bays with redundant data paths to each bay. The drawer supports redundant hot-plug power and cooling and redundant hot-swap SAS expanders (Enclosure Services Manager-ESM). Each ESM has an independent SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) diagnostic processor.

The SAS HDDs or SSD contained in the EXP12S are controlled by one or two PCIe or PCI-X SAS adapters connected to the EXP12S via SAS cables. The SAS cable will vary, depending upon the adapter being used, the operating system being used, and the protection desired.

  • The large cache PCI-X feature 5904/5908 uses a SAS Y cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X cable is used when a pair of adapters are used for controller redundancy.

  • The medium cache PCI-X feature 5902 and PCIe feature 5903 adapters are always paired and use a SAS X cable to attach the feature 5886 I/O drawer.

  • The zero cache PCI-X feature 5912 and PCIe feature 5901 use a SAS Y cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X cable is used for AIX/Linux environments when a pair of adapters is used for controller redundancy.

In all of the above configurations, all 12 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

A second EXP12S drawer can be attached to another drawer using two SAS EE cables, providing 24 SAS bays instead of 12 bays for the same SAS controller port. This is called cascading. In this configuration, all 24 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

The feature 5886 can also be directly attached to the SAS port on the rear of the Power 710 or Power 730, providing a very low cost disk storage solution. When used this way, the imbedded SAS controllers in the system unit drive the HDDs in EXP12S. A second unit cannot be cascaded to a feature 5886 attached in this way.

19-inch racks

The Model 8231-E2B and its I/O drawers are designed to mount in the 25U 7014-S25 (#0555), 36U 7014-T00 (#0551), or the 42U 7014-T42 (#0553) rack. These racks are built to the 19-inch EIA standard. When you order a new 8231 system, you can also order the appropriate 7014 rack model with the system hardware on the same initial order. IBM is making the racks available as features of the 8232-E2B when you order additional I/O drawer hardware for an existing system (MES order). The rack feature number should be used if you want IBM to integrate the newly ordered I/O drawer in a 19-inch rack before shipping the MES order.

1.3-meter rack (#0555 - supported only)

The 1.3-meter rack (#0555) is a 25 EIA unit rack. The rack is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-S25 rack.

1.8-meter rack (#0551)

The 1.8-meter rack (#0551) is a 36 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0551 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T00 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T00 must be ordered separately with the feature 0551. Order the feature 0551 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

2.0-meter rack (#0553)

The 2.0-meter rack (#0553) is a 42 EIA unit tall rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0553 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T42 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T42 must be ordered separately with the feature 0553. Order the feature 0553 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. The POWER7 processor SCM uses lower-voltage technology, improving reliability with stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest level of product quality.

The system cache and memory offer ECC (error checking and correcting) fault-tolerant features. ECC is designed to correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent memory failures and single-bit hard failures. With ECC, the likelihood of memory failures will be reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data in the event of a double-bit memory failure.

The AIX and IBM i operating systems provide disk drive mirroring and disk drive controller duplexing. The Linux operating system supports disk drive mirroring (RAID 1) through software, while other RAID protection schemes are provided via hardware RAID adapters.

The Journaled File System, also known as JFS or JFS2, helps maintain file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure. JFS, the recommended file system for 32-bit kernels, now supports extents on the Linux operating system. This feature is designed to reduce or eliminate fragmentation. Its successor, JFS2, is the recommended file system for 64-bit kernels.

With 64-bit addressing, a maximum file system size of 32 TB and maximum file size of 16 TB, JFS2 is highly recommended for systems running the AIX operating system.

Memory error correction extensions

The memory has single-bit-error correction and double-bit-error detection ECC circuitry. The ECC code is also designed such that the failure of any one specific memory module within an ECC word by itself can be corrected absent any other fault.

Memory protection features include scrubbing to detect errors, a means to call for the deallocation of memory pages for a pattern of correctable errors detected, and signaling deallocation of a logical memory block when an error occurs that cannot be corrected by the ECC code.

Fault monitoring functions

  • When a POWER7 processor-based system is initially powered on, BIST (built-in self-test) and POST (power-on self-test) check processor, cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system. If a noncritical error is detected or if the errors occur in resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the restarting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are logged in the system nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).

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

Mutual surveillance

The Service Processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and also monitors the Hypervisor for termination. The Hypervisor monitors the Service Processor and will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the Service Processor. If the reset/reload does not correct the problem with the Service Processor, the Hypervisor will notify the operating system and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service.

Environmental monitoring functions

POWER7 based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions:

  • Temperature monitoring warns the system administrator of potential environmental-related problems by monitoring the air inlet temperature. When the inlet temperature rises above a warning threshold, the system initiates an orderly shutdown. When the temperature exceeds the critical level or if the temperature remains above the warning level for too long, the system will shut down immediately.

  • Fan speed is controlled by monitoring actual temperatures on critical components and adjusting accordingly. If internal component temperatures reach critical levels, the system will shut down immediately, regardless of fan speed. When a redundant fan fails, the system calls out the failing fan and continues running. When a nonredundant fan fails, the system shuts down immediately.

Availability enhancement functions

The POWER7 family of systems continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER7 processor functions

As in POWER6, the POWER7 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery for a number of core-related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. When an error is encountered in the core, the POWER7 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On IBM systems prior to POWER6, this error would have caused a checkstop.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation. As in POWER6, POWER7 processors have the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. These systems are designed to avoid a full system outage.

POWER7 single processor checkstopping

As in POWER6, POWER7 provides single processor checkstopping. This significantly reduces the probability of a fault in any one processor affecting total system availability.

Partition availability priority

Also available is the ability to assign availability priorities to partitions. If an alternate processor recovery event requires spare processor resources in order to protect a workload, when no other means of obtaining the spare resources is available, the system will determine which partition has the lowest priority and attempt to claim the needed resource. On a properly configured POWER7 processor-based server, this allows that capacity to be first obtained from, for example, a test partition instead of a financial accounting system.

POWER7 cache availability

The POWER processor-based line of servers continues to be at the fore-front of cache availability enhancements. The L3 cache is now integrated on the POWER7 processor. The POWER7 processor provides both L2 and L3 cache line delete functions.

Special uncorrectable error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling was an IBM innovation introduced for POWER5 processors, where an uncorrectable error in memory or cache does not immediately cause the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a checkstop.

PCI extended error handling

PCI extended error handling (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. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Predictive failure and dynamic component deallocation

Servers with POWER processors have long had the capability to perform predictive failure analysis on certain critical components such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit certain symptoms that may indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home, when enabled, about the failing part before the error is propagated system-wide. In many cases, the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. In the event that insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user-defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can automatically restart following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The purpose of serviceability is to repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate service cost (within budget objectives), while maintaining high customer satisfaction. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the customer, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes

  • Design for Customer Set Up (CSU), Customer Installed Features (CIF), and Customer Replaceable Units (CRU)

  • Error detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI)

  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC)

  • Converged service approach across multiple IBM server platforms

Service environments

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI). An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The POWER7 processor-based platforms support two main service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs is a supported option by the system. This is the default configuration for servers supporting logical partitions with dedicated or virtual I/O. In this case, all servers have at least one logical partition.

  • No HMC. There are two service strategies for non-HMC systems

    • Full system partition: A single partition owns all the server resources and only one operating system may be installed.

    • Partitioned system: In this configuration, the system can have more than one partition and can be running more than one operating system. In this environment, partitions are managed by the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM), which provides some of the functions provided by the HMC.

Service Interface

The Service Interface allows support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, interface, or terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the Service Interface allows the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available via the Service Interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system and its operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • LEDs
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC
  • Service Focal Point Lite on IVM

In the light path LED implementation, the system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs, and can also guide the servicer directly to the component by signaling (turning on solid) the amber system fault LED, enclosure fault LED, and the component FRU fault LED. The servicer can also use the identify function to blink the FRU-level LED. When this function is activated, a roll-up to the blue enclosure locate and system locate LEDs will occur. These LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the light path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU.

First Failure Data Capture and Error Data Analysis

First Failure Data Capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extending tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention.

First Failure Data Capture FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems such that they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.

  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.

  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's back-end system.

Automatic diagnostics

Because of the FFDC technology designed into IBM Servers, it is not necessary to perform re-create diagnostics for failures or require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boottime diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics

As the name implies, stand-alone or user-initiated diagnostics require user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Compact disk-based diagnostics
  • Keying in commands
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

The system will continue to support concurrent maintenance of power, cooling, HDD or SSD, DVD, and firmware updates (when possible). The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file released with the firmware. Also, in order for firmware to be updated concurrently, the system must be HMC managed.

Service labels

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions, and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

  • Location diagrams: Location diagrams are strategically located on the system hardware, relating information regarding the placement of hardware components. Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components are installed such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies.

  • Remove/replace procedures: Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams, detailing how to remove/replace certain serviceable hardware components.

  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

Packaging for service

The following service enhancements are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Terracotta-colored touch points indicate that a component (FRU/CRU) can be concurrently maintained. Blue-colored touch points delineate components that are not concurrently maintained -- those that require the system to be turned off for removal or repair.

  • Tool-less design: Selected IBM systems support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.

  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumb-screws, pop Nylatches (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

Error handling and reporting

In the event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes 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 restarted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the operating system. Error Log Analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.

With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the amber system fault LED located on the system unit to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be set to blink by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the blue locate LED on the enclosure and at the system level will turn on solid. The amber system fault LED will be on solid when an error condition occurs.

On POWER7 processor-based servers, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, an ELA routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The Service Processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator. Once the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM Service organization. Customer contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with error log data related to the failure are sent to IBM Service.

Service Processor

The Service Processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

The Service Processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (Hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The Service Processors menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Call Home

Call Home refers to an automatic or manual call from a customer location to IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call Home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call Home can be done through HMC or non-HMC managed systems. While configuring Call Home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the Call Home feature can result in increased system availability. The Electronic Service Agent application can be configured for automated call home. Refer to the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronics Services

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution -- dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM customers. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the customer's company strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

Integrated in the operating system in addition to the HMC, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and customer-perceived issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution between the customer and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM customers, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange.

Benefits

Increased uptime: Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: Electronic Service Agent is secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. Electronic Service Agent securely transmits via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication between the customer and IBM only flows one way; activating Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Services website.

The Electronic Services web portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from the system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Limitations

System

  • Integrated system ports are not supported under AIX or Linux when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system ports can be used, but not both. IBM i can continue to use a system port for communication to a UPS even with an HMC attached.

  • The integrated system ports are supported for modem and asynch terminal connections by AIX or Linux. Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system ports do not support HACMP configurations. IBM i only supports the use of the system ports for attachment to a UPS.

  • Customers will need the System Serial Port Converter Cable (#3930) if the system is being used with a console or a UPS connected to the system port.

Hardware management console (HMC) machine code

An HMC or IVM is required to manage POWER7 processor-based servers implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER7 processor-based servers can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER7 processor-based server, the HMC must be a CR3, or later, model rack-mount HMC or C05, or later, deskside HMC.

If attaching an HMC to a new server or adding function to an existing server that requires a firmware update, the HMC machine code may need to be updated.

To determine the HMC machine code level required for the firmware level on any server, go to the following web page to access the Fix Level Recommendation Tool (FLRT) on or after the planned availability date for this product. FLRT will identify the correct HMC machine code for the selected system firmware level

https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/hmc/home.html

If a single HMC is attached to multiple servers, the HMC machine code level must be updated to the server with the most recent firmware level. All prior levels of server firmware are supported with the latest HMC machine code level.

When IBM Systems Director is used to manage an HMC or if the HMC manages more than 254 partitions, the HMC should have 3 GB of RAM minimum and be CR3 model, or later, rack-mount or C06, or later, deskside.

Boot requirements

  • Selection of feature 0837 will indicate boot from SAN.

  • If IBM i (#2145) is selected as the primary operating system and SAN boot is not selected (#0837), one of the following Load/Source specify codes must be specified:
    • #0724 -- #1996 (177 GB 1.8" SSD) Load Source Specify
    • #0727 -- Remote Load Source Specify in #5886
    • #0840 -- #3678 (283.7 GB 15K RPM HDD) Load Source Specify
    • #0844 -- #3658 (428 GB 15K RPM HDD) Load Source Specify
    • #0851 -- #1884 (69.7 GB 15K RPM SFF HDD) Load Source Specify

    • #5550 -- System Console on HMC
    • #5553 -- System Console - Internal LAN

Processor modules

  • One or two processor modules are required on an order with four, six, or eight processor cores on the processor module. A minimum/maximum of one processor module is required on a Power 710 order and a minimum/maximum of two processor modules is required on a Power 730 order.

  • All processors must be activated.

    • The 4-core 3.0 GHz processor module (#8350) requires that four processor activation codes be ordered. A maximum of four processor activation code features (4 x #8360, or 2 x #8360 and 2 x #8363) are allowed per processor module.

    • The 4-core 3.7 GHz processor module (#8348) requires that four processor activation codes be ordered. A maximum of four processor activation code features (4 x #8381, or 2 x #8381 and 2 x #8383) are allowed per processor module.

    • The 6-core 3.7 GHz processor module (#8349) requires that six processor activation codes be ordered. A maximum of six processor activation code features (6 x #8382, or 3 x #8382 and 3 x #8384) are allowed per processor module.

    • The 8-core 3.55 GHz processor module (#8359) requires that eight processor activation codes be ordered. A maximum of eight processor activation code features (8 x #8372, or 4 x #8372 and 4 x #8375) are allowed per processor module.

Power supply

  • The Power 710 contains one 1725 watt AC power supply (1 x #5603). The Power 730 contains two 1725 watt AC power supplies (2 x #5603).

  • A second 1725 watt AC power supply (#5603) is available for redundant power on the Power 710.

    • A second power supply (#5603) will be added to the order when feature #1890, #1909, or #2053 is on the order and is to be placed in the CEC. The second power supply may be removed from the order by the customer but removing the second power supply from the configuration may impact system reliability and acoustic performance.

Redundant fans

  • Redundant fans standard

Power cords

One power cord is required for each power supply on the order. The Power 710 supports 110-127V ac and 200-240V ac power cords. The Power 730 supports 200-240V ac power cords only. A maximum of 2 x #6665 are allowed on the system unless a valid I/O drawer or tower is attached to the system.

System memory

A minimum 8 GB or two DIMMs of memory is required on the Power 710 and Power 730 systems.

  • The base machine contains one nonfeaturized memory riser card with four DIMM sockets. Memory features consume two memory DIMM sockets.

    • The Power 710 offers one optional memory riser card feature (1 x #5265) with an additional four DIMM sockets. Maximum system memory is 32 GB without feature 5265 and 64 GB with one x feature 5265.

    • The Power 730 offers three optional memory riser card features (3 x #5265) with an additional four DIMM sockets per feature. Maximum system memory is 32 GB without feature 5265 and 128 GB with three x feature 5265.

  • A system with a single memory riser card can be ordered with a single memory feature 4525, 4526 or 4527. When adding additional memory to a memory riser card with one x feature 4525, a second one x feature 4525 must be ordered, and then all memory must be ordered in increments of two x feature 4525. When adding additional memory to a memory riser card with one x feature 4526, a second one x feature 4526 must be ordered, and then all memory must be ordered in increments of two x feature 4526. When adding additional memory to a memory riser card with one x feature 4527, a second one x feature 4527 must be ordered, and then all memory must be ordered in increments of two x feature 4527.

  • Feature 4525, 4526 and feature 4527 cannot be mixed on the same memory riser card. However, memory features can be different from one memory riser card to another.

  • It is generally recommended that memory be installed evenly across all memory riser cards in the system. Balancing memory across the installed memory riser cards allows memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in the best possible performance for your configuration. However, balancing memory fairly evenly across multiple memory riser cards, compared to balancing memory exactly evenly typically has a very small performance difference.

Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

RAID

There are multiple protection options for HDD/SSD drives in the SAS SFF bays in Power 710 and Power 730 system units or drives in disk-only I/O drawers. Although protecting drives is always recommended, AIX/Linux users may choose to leave some or all drives unprotected at their own risk and IBM supports these configurations. IBM i configuration rules differ in this regard, and IBM supports IBM i partition configurations only when HDD/SSD drives are protected.

This HDD/SSD drive protection can be provided by AIX/IBM i/Linux software or by the HDD/SSD hardware controllers. Mirroring of drives is provided by AIX/IBM i/Linux software. In addition, AIX/Linux supports controllers providing RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, or 10. IBM i integrated storage management already provides striping, so IBM i also supports controllers providing RAID 5 or 6. To further augment HDD/SSD protection, hot spare capability can be used for protected drives. Specific hot spare prerequisites apply.

An integrated SAS HDD/SSD controller is provided in the Power 710 and Power 730 system units and provides support for JBOD and RAID 0 for AIX or Linux. It is optionally augmented by RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 capability when feature 5268 is added to the configuration. In addition to these protection options, mirroring of drives by the operating system is supported. AIX or Linux supports all of these options. IBM i does not use JBOD and uses imbedded functions instead of RAID 10, but does leverage the RAID 5 or 6 function of the integrated controllers. Other disk/SSD controllers are provided as PCIe SAS adapters are supported. PCI Controllers with and without write cache are supported. RAID 5 and RAID 6 on controllers with write cache are supported.

AIX/Linux can use disk drives formatted with 512 byte blocks when being mirrored by the operating system. These disk drives must be reformatted to 528 byte sectors when used in RAID arrays. Although a small percentage of the drive's capacity is lost, additional data protection such as ECC and bad block detection is gained in this reformatting. For example, a 300 GB disk drive when reformatted provides around 283 GB. IBM i always uses drives formatted to 528 byte. IBM Power SSDs are formatted to 528 byte.

Feature Availability Matrix

The following feature availability matrix for MT 8231 uses the letter "A" to indicate features that are available and orderable on the specified models. "S" indicates a feature that is supported on the new model during a model conversion; these features will work on the new model, but additional quantities of these features cannot be ordered on the new model; they can only be removed. "N" indicates that the feature is not supported on the new model and must be removed during the model conversion. As additional features are announced, supported, or withdrawn, this list will be updated. Contact your Marketing Representative for additional information.

        |E| A = AVAILABLE  S = SUPPORTED
        |2| N = NOT SUPPORTED, MUST BE REMOVED

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM Power Systems 8231 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.

(#0308) - Mirrored Level System Specify Code

This specify code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems, the marketing configurator will show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not included on the order to support IOA-level mirroring protection. #0308 causes all disk units to be placed into configurations capable of IOA-level mirroring. Each disk unit and its mirrored pair must be on a different disk controller.

Note that the load source disk unit in a new, preloaded system will be device-level mirrored (same protection as provided with feature #0040). This means that the load source is controlled by the first disk unit controller on the first system bus, and will be mirrored with a like disk unit that is also attached to the same first disk controller on the first system bus.

For upgrade orders, #0308 will cause the marketing configurator to show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not available to provide the capability to enable IOA-level mirrored protection for all DASD.

It is the client's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

(#5273) - PCIe LP 8Gb 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter

This feature is the Low Profile (LP) equivalent of feature number 5735.

The 8 Gigabit PCI Express Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high-performance 8x short form adapter based on the Emulex LPe12002 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps and will automatically negotiates to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link speed of t he port.

The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch (AIX, IBM i, Linux,VIOS). If in an IBM i environment, devices can also be directly attached.

N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS.

Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:

  • OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
  • M2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
  • OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables. The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.

    Cable   |  2.125 Gbps  |  4.25 Gbps  |  8.5 Gbps  |
    --------|--------------|-------------|------------|
    OM3     |.5m - 500m    |.5m - 380m   |.5m - 150m  |

(#5290) - PCIe LP 2-Port Async EIA-232 Adapter

Adapter provides connection for 2 asynchronous EIA-232 devices. Ports are programmable to support EIA-232 protocols, at a line speed of 128K bps. Two RJ45 connections are located on the rear of the adapter. To attach to devices using a 9-pin (DB9) connection, use an RJ45-to-DB9 converter. For convenience, one converter is included with this feature. One converter for each connector needing a DB9 connector is needed.

The converter cable shipped with the feature is a 10-pin RJ-45 approximately 30 cm or 1 foot in length. 10-pin is often used for DCE devices like modems. DTE devices may be able to use fewer pin connections. Multiple RJ-45 pin out options are used and sold across the industry. The #3930 feature provides an 8-pin RJ45-to-DB9 converter cable. If an addition 10-pin RJ45-to-DB9 connector like the cable provided with the adapter is desired, it is commonly available from multiple sources and identified as a serial cable with a Digi part number 76000239. It is also possible to look up the cable's pin out specifications and build your own cables.

Note: #5289 and # 5290 are physically and electrically identical adapters except for the type of PCIe slot used (full-high or low profile). Note also the 2-port #5289/5290 is functionally nearly identical to the 4-port #5785/5277 except for the number and type of connectors.

Limitation: As of 2012, IBM i does not support PPP protocol. Also IBM i only supports use on POWER7 and POWER7+ servers.

(#EN28) - PCIe LP 2-Port Async EIA-232 Adapter

Adapter provides connection for 2 asynchronous EIA-232 devices. Ports are programmable to support EIA-232 protocols, at a line speed of 128K bps. Two RJ45 connections are located on the rear of the adapter. To attach to devices using a 9-pin (DB9) connection, use an RJ45-to-DB9 converter. For convenience, one converter is included with this feature. One converter for each connector needing a DB9 connector is needed.

The converter cable shipped with the feature is a 10-pin RJ-45 approximately 30 cm or 1 foot in length. 10-pin is often used for DCE devices like modems. DTE devices may be able to use fewer pin connections. Multiple RJ-45 pin out options are used and sold across the industry. The #3930 feature provides an 8-pin RJ45-to-DB9 converter cable. If an addition 10-pin RJ45-to-DB9 connector like the cable provided with the adapter is desired, it is commonly available from multiple sources and identified as a serial cable with a Digi part number 76000239. It is also possible to look up the cable's pin out specifications and build your own cables.

Note #EN27 and #EN28 are physically and electrically identical adapters, except for the type of PICe Slot used (full-high or low profile).
