Abstract

The IBM 8234 Power 560 Express server is designed to deliver outstanding price/performance, mainframe-inspired reliability and availability features, and innovative virtualization technologies.

Model abstract 8234-EMA

The IBM 8234 Power 560 Express Model EMA with POWER6 processors is a 4- to 16-core SMP, rack-mounted server. The 3.6 GHz Power 560 uses the POWER6+ version of the POWER6 processor. The POWER6 processors in this server are 64-bit features. The feature uses two processor modules, each with two cores. The processor card feature has 32 MB of L3 cache per module, 64 MB L3 per feature; 8 MB of L2 cache per module, 16 MB L2 per feature; and 12 DDR2 memory DIMM slots. The POWER6 processor is available at a frequency of 3.6 GHz. The Power 560 Express uses the POWER6 DDR2 memory architecture to provide greater bandwidth and capacity. This enables operating at a higher data rate for large memory configurations. Each POWER6 processor card can support up to 12 DDR2 DIMMs running at speeds up to 667 MHz. A full system can contain up to 384 GB of memory in a 16-core system. This model server is available in 4-, 8-, and 16-core configurations. This modular-built system uses one or two enclosures; each enclosure is four EIA units tall and is housed in a 19-inch rack. Each of the system enclosures have two processor slots and can contain two POWER6 processor card features. The Power 560 Express offers a choice of 1 Gb or 10 Gb integrated host Ethernet adapters (HEA). These native ports are selected at the time of initial order. The model EMA supports virtualization of these integrated Ethernet adapters, also called Integrated Virtual Ethernet (IVE).

PowerVM

PowerVM Editions are available as a hardware feature (#7942 for Standard, #7995 for Enterprise). Select the feature that provides the level of virtualization required for your application.

  • Partition Mobility, available only with PowerVM-Enterprise (#7995), enables you to move a running AIX or Linux LPAR from one physical server to another with no downtime if both servers are using POWER6 processors. This is a significant advancement in Power Systems virtualization technology and can assist you with performing the following common business needs while keeping the business up and running:

    • Evacuating a system before performing scheduled maintenance

    • Moving workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift

    • Moving workloads off underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs

  • Micro-Partitioning support for a single core being shared by up to 10 logical partitions.

  • Virtual I/O Server is a single-function appliance that resides in a POWER5 or POWER6 processor-based partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between client partitions (AIX V5.3 or later, IBM i V6.1, or Linux) within the server. VIOS provides virtual SCSI targets and shared Ethernet adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.

  • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (SCSI and Fibre Channel) and storage devices (disk and optical) between LPARs.

  • Virtual networking: SEA enables connectivity between internal and external virtual LANs (VLANs); virtual Ethernet enables high-speed connections between partitions.

  • Lx86 supports running most x86 Linux applications within Linux partitions. For more information visit:
    http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/software/virtualization/editions/
    lx86/qual.html
     
    

PowerVM Editions:

  • PowerVM -Standard (#7942) supports up to 10 partitions per core, HMC management, VIOS, Lx86, and multiple shared processor pools.

  • PowerVM -Enterprise (#7995) adds support for Live Partition Mobility for AIX and Linux partitions.

Other PowerVM technologies include:

  • Workload Partitions (WPARs) provide isolated instances on top of a single AIX 6.1 image.

  • Live Application Mobility available with WPAR Manager provides the movement of a running AIX application from one server to another.

  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying Power System LPARs and virtual I/O.

  • HMC provides management of virtualized systems.

Power 560 Express Capacity Backup (CBU) capability

Applies to IBM i only.

The Power 560 systems' CBU designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred.

The CBU specify feature 0444 is available only as part of a new server purchase. Certain system prerequisites must be met and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 OLTP (Enterprise Enablement) entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine they were ordered for. When you register the association between your primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer.

After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system when the primary system is down or while the primary system processors are inactive. The CBU system can then better support failover and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system and may remain in use on the CBU system as long as the registered primary and CBU system are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

The primary system for a Power 560 (8234-EMA) server can be:

  • 8234-EMA
  • 9117-MMA
  • 9406-MMA
  • 9406-570
  • 8204-E8A
  • 9409-M50
  • 9406-550

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P20 or P30 software tier. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor license on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor license on the CBU server. An activated processor must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You can then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the mimimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement you would like to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal re- cords of its total number of IBM i processor license entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. These warning messages in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You can then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement.

For example, if you have a four-core Power 560 as your primary system with two IBM i processor license entitlements (one above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer only one IBM i entitlement and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS):

The reliability of the Power 560 Express starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. 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 high product quality levels.

The Power 560 Express L3 cache and system memory offers error checking and correcting (ECC) 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 is substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure.

The AIX operating system supports disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing while Linux supports DASD mirroring (RAID 1) through software. Additionally, some hardware RAID adapters are supported on Linux.

When using the AIX operating system, 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, for 32-bit kernels, and JFS2, for 64-bit kernels, are designed to substantially reduce or eliminate fragmentation.

Memory error-correction extensions

System memory has single-error-correct and double-error-detect ECC circuitry designed to correct single-bit memory failures. Double-bit detection is designed to help 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 is designed to only affect a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering), thus allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete DRAM chip failure (Chipkill recovery).

System memory also uses memory scrubbing and dynamic bit steering, enabling correctable error thresholds to determine when available spare memory modules on each DIMM should be used to replace bit lines that have exceeded their threshold value.

Redundancy for array self-healing

Although the most likely failure event in a processor is a soft single-bit error in one of its caches, other events can occur, and they need to be distinguished from one another. For the L1, L2, and L3 caches and their directories, hardware and firmware keep track of whether permanent errors are being corrected beyond a set threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional runtime availability actions, such as CPU vary off or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated.

L1 and L2 caches and L2 and L3 directories on the POWER6 chip are manufactured with spare bits in their arrays that can be accessed via programmable steering logic to replace faulty bits in the respective arrays. This is similar to the redundant bit steering employed in main storage as a mechanism designed to help avoid physical repair; it is also implemented in systems using the POWER6 processor. The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the built- in system-test (BIST) at power-on time.

When correctable error thresholds in the L3 cache exceed a set threshold, systems using the POWER6 processor invoke a dynamic L3 cache line delete function, which enables them to stop using bad cache and eliminates exposure to greater problems.

Fault monitoring functions

When a system using the POWER6 processor is powered on, BIST and power-on self-test (POST) check processors, L3 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system can be performed. If a noncritical error is detected or if errors occur in resources that can be removed from the system configuration, booting the system is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are subsequently logged in the system nonvolatile RAM.

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

On POWER6 processor-based servers running the AIX or Linux operating systems, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. An error log analysis (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 check stop conditions and forwards them to the SFP application and notifies the system administrator. After the information is logged, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request is initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is 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 engineering data related to the failure, are sent to IBM service.

The call home feature enables IBM service representatives to pre- emptively bring the most-probable replacement parts when a service call is placed, reducing repair time.

Mutual surveillance

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

Environmental monitoring functions

POWER6 processor-based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions.

Temperature monitoring increases the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range or when a redundant fan fails.

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.

It also performs an orderly system shutdown when the operating temperature exceeds the critical level.

Fan speed monitoring provides a warning and increases fan speeds on the redundant fans to compensate for a detected fan failure. It can also initiate an orderly system shutdown if there is an additional cooling failure when the fans are in high-speed mode.

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

Availability enhancement functions

The POWER6 line of systems continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER6 processor availability enhancements

One of the significant mainframe-inspired availability enhancements in systems with the POWER6 processor is the ability to perform processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery. 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 POWER6 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error is truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On previous IBM systems, this error would cause a checkstop.

With hard failures, true logical errors that are replicated each time the instruction is repeated, retrying the instruction does not help. The instruction will continue to fail. Systems with POWER6 processors can extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. The entire process is transparent to the partition owning the failing instruction. Systems with POWER6 processors are designed to avoid what would have been a full system outage on earlier models.

POWER6 single processor check stopping

Another major advancement in POWER6 processors is single processor check stopping. The Power 560 Express can contain most processor checkstops to the partition that was using the processor at the time. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

POWER6 cache availability

The POWER line of servers continues to be at the forefront of cache availability enhancements. While L3 cache line delete was introduced with POWER4 processors, the POWER6 processor line pioneers L2 cache line delete. If an uncorrectable error occurs in L2 or L3 cache, the system can dynamically remove the offending line of cache without requiring a reboot. In addition, the POWER6 processor-based server uses an inclusive L1/L2 cache design and a write-through cache policy on all levels. This helps ensure that data is written to main memory as soon as possible. POWER6 processors also continue to offer hardware-assisted memory scrubbing.

Special uncorrectable error handling

Special uncorrectable error handling, an IBM innovation introduced for POWER5 processors, prevents a uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing 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

In systems using POWER6 processors, I/O drawer hardware, system firmware, and AIX interaction are 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 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 examines the affected bus, enables the device driver to reset it, and continues without a system reboot. Currently, there is limited support for Linux, depending upon driver availability.

Predictive failure analysis and dynamic component deal location

Servers with POWER processors have long been able to perform Predictive Failure Analysis on certain critical components such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit symptoms that would indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home about the failing part before the error becomes systematic. In many cases this is transparent; the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. If insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user-defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery

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 Power 560 Express is designed with both IBM and customer serviceability in mind.

Advancements such as Guiding Light LED architecture are used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible.

An HMC attached to the Power 560 Express enables support personnel (with your authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consist of stand-alone diagnostics, that are loaded from the DVD-ROM drive, and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system 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 enables checking of system devices and features. Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked. Maintenance mode enables checking of devices and adapters. Note: Because the 8234-EMA system has an optional DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM, alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM is not ordered; an external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system microcode to the latest required level.

Concurrent maintenance guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component will be documented and available for display on any Web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. The Power 560 Express service procedures will be released through the following Web site, under System Hardware, Power Systems Information:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systems/index.jsp

Error handling and reporting

In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system run-time error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure.

CEC and power and cooling subsystem events are analyzed concurrently with system operation by the processor runtime diagnostics (PRD) or by Hypervisor code. Results of these analyses are logged on the service processor and forwarded to both the operating system partitions and the SFP application on the HMC.

The SFP application contains logs of all detected and analyzed errors, detected either by the device drivers on the operating system for I/O-based events or by PRD or Hypervisor for runtime-detected errors in the remainder of the system.

With the call home function on the HMC, the system can automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or initiate a call for service when a service action point is reached.

A hardware fault also turns on the two attention indicators (one located on the front of the system unit and the other on the rear) to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator can also be turned on by the operator as a tool for system identification. The indicators will flash to signify identification and will be ON to signify an error condition.

Service Processor

The Power 560 Express service processor enables you 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 includes several remote power control options, environmental monitoring (but only critical errors are supported under Linux), reset and boot features, and 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

The Call Home application is available at no additional charge and is installed on every HMC. When it is properly configured, it helps IBM deliver the best maintenance service for your system.

Concurrent Maintenance

The Power 560 Express supports concurrent repair of power, cooling, PCI adapters, media devices, and the operator panel. In addition, it supports concurrent firmware updates when possible. The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme file released with the firmware.

IBM Electronic Services

This Web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The improved My Systems and My Search functions make it even easier for you to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Higher availability:

Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance your Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by offering faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Around-the-clock monitoring and reporting means no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security:

Electronic Service Agent is secure -- monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. Electronic Service Agent securely transmits data either via the Internet or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to give you a single point of exit from your site. Communication is one way -- IBM cannot call into your system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database that is protected behind IBM firewalls. Your business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting:

Better reporting and automatic problem routing mean higher system availability and fix confidence. Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, you do not need 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.

General requirements

The product is in compliance with IBM Corporate Bulletin C-B 0-2594-000 Statement of Conformity of IBM Product to External Standard (Suppliers Declaration).

Limitations

For customers loading the IBM i operating system, the four digit numeric QPRCFEAT value used on the 8234-EMA is the same as the four digit numeric feature code for the processors used in the System.

Example: If the processor feature code in a system is 7537, the QPRCFEAT value for the system would be 7537.

The QPRCFEAT value in a Power 560 system does not change with the addition of more processors or additional CEC enclosures.

The QPRCFEAT value in a Power 560 system would change only if another processor feature code was announced and the feature code of the processors was changed due to a processor upgrade.

Processors

All processors in the system must be fully active.

A system can have one or two CEC enclosures. Each enclosure has two processor slots; each slot will accept a processor card feature. A system with one enclosure may have one or two processor cards installed. A system with two enclosures must have two processor cards in each enclosure.

When two or more processor cards are installed in a system, all cards must have the same feature number.

All system configurations require three working Processor Power Regulators per CEC enclosure. Enclosures with two Processor Power Regulators do not provide redundancy for any processor configuration. A third Processor Power Regulator is required to provide redundant power support to either one or two processor cards in an enclosure.

Memory

All memory in the system must be fully active.

Each processor card feature must have a minimum of four DIMMs installed.

Memory features include a total of four DIMMs. A minimum of four DIMMs must be placed on the same processor card. There is a required plug location for every memory feature attached to a process or card.

  • The first four memory DIMMs must be plugged in DIMM sockets J0A, J0B, J0C, and J0D.
  • The second four memory DIMMs must be plugged in DIMM sockets J1A, J1B, J1C, and J1D.
  • The third four memory DIMMs must be plugged in DIMM sockets J2A, J2B, J2C, and J2D.

When configuring the memory in a Power 560, placing two memory features (8 DIMMs) on a single processor card will provide the maximum available memory bandwidth. Adding the third memory feature will provide additional memory capacity but will not increase memory bandwidth. System performance that is dependent on memory bandwidth can be improved by purchasing two smaller features per processor card as opposed to one large feature per processor card. To achieve this, when placing an order, ensure the order has 2X memory features for every processor card feature on the order.

Memory features 1921 and 1922 can be mixed on the same POWER6 processor card.

The 32 GB memory feature (#1923) may not be mixed with other memory feature sizes on a single processor card. A processor card with 32 GB memory features can be mixed in the same CEC enclosure with a processor card containing other sizes of memory features.

For all processors and all system configurations, if memory features in a single system have different frequencies, all memory in the system will function according to the lowest frequency present.

Each system must contain a minimum of 8 GB of active system memory.

Memory activations will activate memory hardware only in the system serial number they are purchased for. If you move memory hardware to another system, the memory may not be functional in that system until arrangements are made to move the memory activations or purchase additional memory activations. To move memory activations between systems, you own contact PCOD@us.ibm.com for assistance.

It is recommended that memory be installed evenly across all processor cards in the system. Balancing memory across the installed processor cards allows memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in the best possible performance for your configuration.

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.

Power

Each Power 560 with two CEC enclosures (16 processor cores) must have one Power Control Cable (#6006 or similar) to connect the Service Interface Card in the first enclosure to the Service Interface Card in the second enclosure.

There are two ac power supplies in each CEC enclosure; the second is required to provide redundant power for enhanced system availability. A CEC enclosure will continue to function with one working power supply. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.

There are three Processor Power Regulators in each CEC enclosure; the third is required to provide redundant power to the processors for enhanced system availability. The processors will continue to function if there are at least two working Power Regulators in the enclosure. A failed (third) Power Regulator can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power regulator is available for exchange.

Two Processor Power Regulators in a single enclosure do not provide redundancy for any processor configuration. A third Processor Power Regulator is required to provide redundant power support to either one or two processor cards in the enclosure.

All CEC enclosures must ship with three Processor Power Regulators.

Power Distribution Units

For systems installed in IBM 7014 racks, the following Power Distribution Unit (PDU) rules apply (not all PDUs are available in all models of the 7014):

For PDU features 9176, 9177, 7176, and 7177: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three Power 560 CEC enclosures (three drawers per two PDUs). (These features are no longer available for purchase.)

For PDU features 9178 and 7178: Each pair of PDUs can power up to six Power 560 CEC enclosures (six drawers per two PDUs). (These features are no longer available for purchase.)

For PDU features 9188, 7188, 5889, and 7109 when using power cord 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three Power 560 CEC enclosures (three drawers per two PDUs).

For PDU features 9188, 7188, 5889, and 7109 when using power cord feature numbers 6489, 6491, 6492, or 6653: Each pair of PDUs can power up to seven Power 560 CEC enclosures (seven drawers per two PDUs).

Each server drawer has two power supplies, which must be connected to separate PDUs to provide full redundancy.

Server power cords should be evenly spread across the available PDU power outlets to distribute the current across multiple circuit breakers.

Racks

The Power 560 consists of one or two CEC enclosures. Each enclosure occupies 4U of vertical rack space. The Power 560 is designed to be installed in a 7014-T00, -T42, -B42, or S25 rack. An existing -T00, -T42, -B42, or S25 rack can be used for the Power 560 if sufficient space and power are available.

The 25 EIA unit (1.3 meter) rack (#0555), the 36 EIA unit (1.8 meter) rack (#0551), and the 42 EIA unit (2.0 meter) rack (#0553) are available for order on MES upgrade orders only. For initial system orders, the racks should be ordered as Machine Type 7014, Models S25, T00, -B42, or T42.

For Power 560 configurations with two drawers, both drawers must be installed together in the same rack, in a continuous space of 8U. The uppermost enclosure in the system is the base enclosure. This enclosure will contain the active Service Processor and the Operator Panel, if an Operator Panel is present in the system. If a second CEC enclosure is part of the system, the backup service processor is contained in the second CEC enclosure. The service processor is a component of the Service Interface Card in these enclosures.

When a Power 560 system is installed in an 7014-T00, -B42, or -T42 rack or in a feature 0551 or feature 0553 rack that has no front door, a Thin Profile Front Trim Kit must be ordered for the rack. The required trim kit for the 7014-T00 or 0551 rack is feature number 6246. The required trim kit for the 7014-T42 or -B42 0553 rack is feature number 6247.

The design of the Power 560 is optimized for use in a 7014-T00, -T42, -B42, or S25 rack. The front cover occupies space on the front left side of an IBM 7014 rack that may not be available in typical non-IBM racks.

Acoustic Door features are available with the 7014-T00 and 7014-T42 or B42, racks to meet the lower acoustic levels identified in the specification section of this document. The Acoustic Door feature can be ordered on new T00, B42, and T42 racks or ordered for the T00, B42, and T42 racks that clients already own.

I/O Drawers

To further reduce possible single points of failure, POWER6 implements enhanced disk storage configuration rules. IBM configuration tools and IBM technical support personnel do not support integrated cached disk controller configurations unless they have a protected write cache. Disk controllers with write cache must protect the cache by either pairing the disk controllers (write cache replication or IOA-level mirroring) or by using an auxiliary write cache IOA. This is true for all partitions in the Power 560 using any operating systems.

The following is a list of the Remote I/O drawers that are supported or available on the 8234 machine type and the correct interface to use for each of the drawers.

                  Order

7314-G30                                 Supported   12X
 

7311-D20 I/O drawers with RIO Ports: I/O Planer Riser Card (#6413) must be upgraded to RIO-2 Ports, I/O Planer Riser Card (#6417) before they can be attached to a Power 560 server.

Some I/O adapters supported in the 7311-D20 I/O drawers when attached to a POWER5 or POWER5+ processor-based Power Systems server will not be supported when these same I/O drawers are attached to a Power 560 server with POWER6 processors. For a complete list of supported adapters, refer to the online sales manual for the 7311-D20 I/O drawer.

The maximum number of attached remote I/O drawers depends on the number of CEC enclosures in the system and the I/O attachment type, as follows:

For the 7311-D20:

  • Systems with one CEC enclosure:
    • With four processors the enclosure supports up to six I/O drawers.
    • With eight processors the enclosure supports up to 12 I/O drawers.
    • Systems with two CEC enclosures support up to 18 I/O drawers.

For PCI-DDR 12X Host Channel attached I/O Drawers:

  • Systems with one CEC enclosure:
    • With four processors the enclosure supports up to four I/O drawers.
    • With eight processors the enclosure supports up to eight I/O drawers.
    • Systems with two CEC enclosures support up to 12 I/O drawers.

For PCIe 12X Host Channel attached I/O Drawers:

  • Systems with one CEC enclosure:
    • With four processors the enclosure supports up to two I/O drawers.
    • With eight processors the enclosure supports up to four I/O drawers.
    • Systems with two CEC enclosures support up to six I/O drawers.

It is recommended that any attached remote I/O drawers be located in the same rack as the Power 560 server for ease of service, but they can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it.

I/O drawers are connected to the adapters in the CEC enclosure with the following cables:

  • Data transfer cables:
    • RIO-2 attach cables for RIO-2 I/O Drawers
    • 12X cables for 12X Channel I/O Drawers

  • Power Control cables:
    • RIO-2 I/O Drawers and 12X Channel I/O Drawers may not be mixed in the same remote I/O loop.

Remote I/O drawer cable connections are always made in loops to help protect against a single point-of-failure resulting from an open, missing, or disconnected cable. A Power 560 system with nonlooped configurations could experience degraded performance and serviceability. If a nonloop connection is detected, a problem is reported.

The first I/O drawer attached in any remote I/O drawer loop requires two data transfer cables. Each additional drawer in the loop (up to the maximum allowed) requires one additional data transfer cable.

The first I/O drawer attached to a host system requires two Power Control Cables. Each additional I/O drawer added to a host system requires one additional Power Control Cable. Each host system has one power control loop. All I/O drawers attached to a system are included in the same Power Control loop. Power Control Cable loops are different in this regard from data transfer cable loops.

Dual-Port PCI-DDR 12X Channel Interface adapter options

Dual-Port PCI-DDR 12X Channel Attach Adapter (#6446)

Use the short run adapter for expansion I/O drawers located in close proximity to the host system or to other drawers in the I/O expansion loop. This adapter does not include signal repeaters.

Dual Port PCI-DDR 12X Channel Attach Adapter (#6457)

Use the long run adapter for expansion I/O drawers located farther from the host system or other I/O drawers in the I/O expansion loop. This adapter includes signal repeaters to accommodate the longer cable lengths.

PCI-DDR 12X Cable choice

Each 5796 drawer requires one Dual-Port PCI-DDR 12X Channel Adapter, either Short Run (#6446) or Long Run (#6457). The choice of adapters is dependent on the distance to the next PCI-DDR 12X Channel connection in the loop, either to another I/O drawer or the host system. The following table identifies the supported cable lengths for each 12X Channel adapter. I/O drawers containing the Short Range adapter can be mixed in a single loop with I/O drawers containing the Long Range adapter. In this table a "Yes" indicates that the 12X cable identified in that column can be used to connect the drawer configuration identified to the left. A "No" means it cannot be used.

Note: (1) The PCI-DDR 12X cable (#1829 or #1861 or #1862) is limited to connecting two drawers or server to drawer if in the same rack and within 20 EIA. It has very limited use due to its short length. It cannot be used to connect to a system drawer because of the short length. It is intended for use between two 5796 drawers mounted side by side in the same enclosure (#7314). It can also be used to connect between two modules located one beneath the other in a 7014 rack.

Note: (2) The PCI-DDR 12X cable (#1840 or #1865) is limited to connecting cec to drawer if in the same rack and further than 20 EIA. It is possible in some limited configurations to use the 3.0 M, 12X cable (#1840 or #1865) to locate 5796 modules in adjacent racks. The cable length requires careful management of the each drawer location within the rack. The best choice for connecting a feature 5796 I/O Drawer in an adjacent rack is the 8.0 M, 12X cable (#1834 or #1864).

Note: (3) The PCI-DDR 12X cable (#1834 or #1864) is limited to connecting cec to drawer if in different racks. It is intended for use when connecting between two modules that are located in adjacent racks. This cable may not be connected to the 12X Short Run adapter (#6446).

The PCIe 12x drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12x adapter in a GX slot via 12X DDR cables available in different cable lengths: 1.5 (#1862), 3.0 (#1865), or 8 meters (#1864).

Integrated I/O

Although each CEC enclosure is equipped with integrated system port (serial) external connectors, these ports do not function with the attachment of the required HMC. These ports will, however, provide the needed communication for a UPS (uninterruptible power source) when used with a conversion cable feature 1827.

Each CEC enclosure must contain one Virtual Ethernet (HEA) Integrated I/O port card (#5636, #5637, or #5639). This selection is available only when a CEC enclosure is first ordered from the factory.

Each system has two HMC ports on the Service Interface Card in each CEC enclosure. The HMC must be attached to the Service Interface Card in all CEC enclosures in the Power 560 system. On two enclosure systems, an SPCN cable (#6006 or similar) must be used to connect the Service Interface Card in enclosure one to the Service Interface Card in enclosure two.

Disks, media, and boot (load source) devices

A device capable of reading a CD-ROM must be attached to the system and available to perform operating system installation, maintenance, problem determination, and service actions such as maintaining system firmware and I/O microcode at their latest levels. Alternatively, the system must be attached to a network with an AIX NIM server configured to perform these functions.

System boot (load source) is supported via DASD in a remote DASD drawer attached to a PCI adapter or an I/O drawer attached to GX adapter, or from a network via LAN adapters.

The minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive (two SAS drives for configurations with #2145) in one of the CEC enclosures or two SCSI disk drives (configurations with #2145 only) or an adapter capable of attaching a remote DASD drawer or a LAN adapter.

Each CEC enclosure can support one media device when the optional Media Enclosure and Backplane feature is ordered. Each system can support up to two media devices.

For systems running the Linux operating system, a DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM is required for each Linux partition.

I/O slots and adapters

Each Power 560 CEC enclosure has two PCI-X slots, four PCIe slots, and two GX+ slots. One of the PCIe slots shares physical space with one of the GX+ slots such that a maximum of seven adapters can be used in a single CEC enclosure. The two PCI-X 2.0 DDR slots are full length, 64-bit, 266 MHz slots. There are three full-length PCIe 8X slots and one short form factor PCIe 8X slot. The two GX+ slots support short form factor GX adapters.

The slots are identified on the back side of the CEC enclosure as follows:

Slot ID        Adapter type       Slot size
------------   -----------------  -----------------
P1-C1          PCIe   8X          Full length
P1-C2          PCIe   8X          Full length
P1-C3          PCIe   8X          Full length
P1-C4          PCI-X  2.0 DDR     Full length
P1-C5          PCI-X  2.0 DDR     Full length
P1-C6/P1-C8    PCIe 8X / GX+      Short form factor
P1-C9                    GX+      Short form factor
 

Adapter slots P1-C6 and P1-C8 share the same physical space in a CEC enclosure. When a GX+ adapter is installed in GX slot P1-C8, PCIe slot P1-C6 cannot be used.

A system configuration with only four processor cores (one processor card feature) does not support the use of GX slot P1-C9. In this configuration only, the P1-C8 GX slot will function (this slot is physically shared with PCIe slot P1-C6). Adding a second processor feature card to the enclosure will allow the P1-C9 slot to function.

The Power System 560 I/O slot population rules are complex. Extensive configuration rules and checking procedures are incorporated into the Marketing Configurator ECFGPWR to help ensure a valid system configuration. Configurations generated without using the ECFGPWR configurator may create orders that cannot be built, resulting in possible order rejection or delayed delivery.

Feature maximum limits in the feature descriptions of this document for adapters and devices may not provide optimal system performance. These limits are given to assist with connectivity and functional assurance. The maximum values shown here apply to the features installed in the system CEC enclosures and the system remote I/O drawer features.

Adapters supported previously on IBM i (formerly i5/OS) and known as "IOP" adapters are not supported on the Power 560 Express. Check the available feature list before adding an older adapter to the Power 560 Express to ensure it is supported for use.

Hot-plug options

The following options are hot-plug capable:

  • System ac power supplies: One functional power supply must remain installed in each CEC enclosure at all times while the system is operating.

  • Disk drives.

  • Most PCI adapters.

  • Processor power regulators: Two functional processor power regulators must remain installed in each CEC enclosure at all times while the system is operating.

Hot-plug procedures are contained in the Customer Information Center on ibm.com.

If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be hot-plugged.

The following adapter is not hot-plug capable:

POWER GXT135P Graphics Accelerator with Digital Support (#2849)

Logical partitioning

Dynamic LPAR allows one partition per processor.

Up to 10 partitions per processor are supported when PowerVM feature 7942 - Standard or feature 7995 - Enterprise is ordered.

For Linux partitions, a DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM is required.

Hardware Management Console (HMC) Machine Code

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 URL 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.

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/flrt/home

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.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM System p 8234 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: 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.

  • Attributes provided: IOA level system mirroring
  • Attributes required: A minimum of two disk controllers and an even number of disk units (with a minimum of four disk units on a system).
  • For 8234-EMA: (#0308)

(#1827) System port/UPS Conversion Cable

This cable has 9 pin D-shell receptacle connectors on both ends. Its purpose is to convert an integrated system (serial) port to a UPS attach port. This cable is 0.14m (5.5 inches) long.

  • Attributes provided: System (serial) port conversion for UPS attachment
  • Attributes required: Integrated CEC system (serial) port.

    Note: On the 8234-EMA, the System (serial) port 2, identified on the CEC enclosure rear bulkhead as "Tx/UPS" (where x = 3 or 5) will provide the required communication to an Uninterrupted Power Source (UPS), using cable feature 1827, only on the CEC enclosure that contains the active Service Processor. The System (serial) port 2 (Tx/UPS) on all other enclosures does not function.

    For single CEC enclosure systems, one 1827 cable is required and must be connected to System (serial) port 2 (Tx/UPS) on the base CEC enclosure.

    For multi-CEC enclosure systems, because of the Redundant Service Processor capability available with the EMA, two 1827 cables are required. One must be attached to System (serial) port 2 (Tx/UPS) on the base CEC enclosure (upper most in the stack), the second must be connected to System (serial) port 2 (Tx/UPS) on CEC enclosure two. These two cables must both be attached to the UPS.

    Failure to connect both cables to the UPS will expose the system to possible failure during a loss of AC power.

(#5735) 8 Gigabit PCI Express Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter

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 the 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  |
    OM2     |.5m - 300m    |.5m - 150m   |.5m - 50m   |

(#5736) PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of July 11, 2014)

The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5736) 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.). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external. 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 maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To utilize the 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices; however, 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.

Two VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A 0.3-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.

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.

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5736) is a native boot adapter. The adapter also supports target mode.

Feature #5736 and #5806 are physically identical cards with the same 571A CCIN. Different features are used to help IBM configurator tool understand whether or not an IOP is being used with the adapter. #5806 indicates an IOP is present.

Limitations:

  • 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 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.

Minimum System Firmware Required:

System firmware level required is SF235_185 or greater. Firmware level SF235_185 adjusts the PCI slots to run in Single Data Rate (SDR) mode. Enablement of Double Data Rate (DDR)slots to run at DDR mode is planned to be provided in an upcoming firmware enhancement.

For Double Data Rate (DDR), check for firmware upgrade at URL:

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/mdownload2/download.html

(#5774) 4 Gigabit PCI Express Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter

The 4 Gigabit Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter is a 64-bit address/data, short form factor PCIe adapter with an LC type external fiber connector. With the use of appropriate optical fiber cabling, this adapter provides the capability for a network of high-speed local and remote located storage. The adapter will auto-negotiate for the highest data rate between adapter and an attaching device at 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps or 4 Gbps of which the device or switch is capable. Between the adapter and an attaching device or switch, the distances supported are up to: 500 meters running at 1 Gbps data rate, 300 meters running at 2 Gbps data rate, and 150 meters running at 4 Gbps data rate. When used with IBM Fibre Channel storage switches supporting long-wave optics, distances of up to 10 kilometers are capable running at either 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, or 4 Gbps data rates.

The 4 Gigabit PCIe Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter can be used to attach devices either directly, or by means of Fibre Channel Switches. If attaching a device or switch with a SC type fiber connector(s), use of an LC-SC 50 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2456) or a LC-SC 62.5 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2459) is required.

(#5805) - PCIe 380MB Cache Dual - x4 3Gb SAS RAID Adapter

The #5805 PCIe 380 MB Cache Dual - x4 3 Gb SAS RAID Adapter is a short, full high form factor adapter that supports the attachment of SAS disk and SAS solid state drives (SSD) using a pair of mini SAS 4x connectors. Write cache can provide an I/O performance boost even if RAID 5/6/10 is not used. From a high-level perspective, except for having a larger write cache, it is very similar to the feature 5902 PCI-X SAS adapter and provides a high-performance connection to SAS devices. Two of feature 5805 provides for mirrored write cache data and mirrored RAID parity footprints between the adapters for superior availability. Feature 5805 is installed in pairs, allowing for redundancy of the write cache. If the feature 5805 pairing is broken, then write cache is disabled. The #5805 can also be paired with a #5903 adapter. Feature 5805 supports SAS disk drives (HDD) and SAS-bay-based SSD located in a PCIe 12X I/O Drawer or drives located in an EXP12S Disk Drawer or EXP24 Disk Drawer. AIX/Linux formatted SAS drives can be attached, and RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 are supported. Similarly, IBM i RAID formatted HDD and SSD can also also be attached, and RAID 5 and RAID 6 is support. AIX, IBM i and Linux also support The #5805 is electronically identical to the #5903 and both the 5903 and 5805 use CCIN number is 574E. The #5805 adapter is slightly more narrow than the #5903 due to the placement of its cache batteries.

With proper cabling and configuration, multiple wide ports are used to provide redundant paths to each dual port SAS disk or SSD.. The adapter manages SAS path redundancy and path switching should a SAS drive failure occur. The pairing of #5805 provides a high availability I/O configuration to protect against the failure of a SAS adapter. SAS X cables attach SAS disk drives in an EXP12S and/or EXP24S Disk Drawer. SAS #3688 cables attach SFF SAS drives in an PCIe 12X I/O Drawer. The high availability I/O configuration connection is provided via the internal wiring within the PCIe 12X I/O drawer itself.

(#5913) - PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb

The PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb (#5913) provides high performance HDD or SSD controller function using PCIe Gen2 technology. HDD and SSD can be either SFF or 3.5-inch drives (or both). A pair of adapters are required to provide mirrored write cache data and adapter redundancy. Integrated flash memory provides protection of the write cache without batteries in case of power failure.

The #5913 provides three Mini-SAS HD (high density) connectors for the attachment of SAS drives located in the #5887 EXP24S, #5886 EPX12S, or #5802/5803 12X PCIe I/O drawers. X , YO or AT SAS cables with HD connectors are used to attach to these drawers. A max of 3 EXP24S or 6 EXP12S can be attached. If controlling drives in a #5802/ 5803 the #5913 pairs must be located in that #5802/5803. An AA SAS cable with HD connectors is attached to the #5913 pair to communicate status and cache content information and is required unless all three ports are being used to attach I/O drawers.

The #5913 provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 for AIX and Linux and VIOS. The adapter provides RAID 5 and RAID 6 for IBM i. IBM i provides both OS mirroring and data spreading. AIX/Linux/VIOS provide OS mirroring (LVM). The adapter's CCIN is 57B5.

(#EJ28) - PCIe Crypto Coprocessor Gen3 BSC 4765-001

Secure-key adapter provides both cryptographic coprocessor and cryptographic accelerator functions in a single PCIe card. The adapter is well suited to applications requiring high-speed, security- sensitive, RSA acceleration, cryptographic operations for data encryption and digital signing, secure management, and use of cryptographic keys, or custom cryptographic applications. It provides secure storage of cryptographic keys in a tamper-resistant hardware security module designed to meet FIPS 140-2 level 4 security requirements. The adapter is a PCIe 4x full height - short card.

#EJ27, #EJ28 and #EJ29 are all feature codes representing the same physical card with the same CCIN of 4765, but different feature codes are used to indicate if a blind swap cassette is used and its type. #EJ27 indicates no blind swap cassette. #EJ28 indicates a Gen 3 blind swap cassette. #EJ29 indicates a Gen 4 blind swap cassette. 2

#EJ27, EJ28 and EJ29 are identical to #4807, #4808 and #4809 adapters which were manufactured after 2012, but different from #4807, #4808 and #4809 adapters manufactured prior to 2012.

Other IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor adapter highlights

  • Integrated Dual processors that operate in parallel for higher reliability
  • Supports IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture or PKCS#11 standand
  • Ability to configure adapter as coprocessor or accelerator
  • Support for smart card applications using Europay, MasterCard and Visa
  • Cryptographic key generation and random number generation
  • PIN processing - generation, verification, translation
  • Encrypt/Dectrypt using AES and DES keys
