Limitations

  • The xSeries 336 server contains a single, configurable serial port. It can be configured to be operating-system-controlled, service-processor-controlled, or shared between the two. You can set the configuration by changing the header location to which the internal serial cable is plugged. The default location from the factory is in the shared position. In the shared position, the service processor controls the port until the operating system is running, then the operating system takes control. The service processor can regain control of the port for user-configured dial-out situations or if the operating system is not available, but operating system control cannot be reestablished without resetting the server.
  • xSeries 336 servers can address a maximum of 16 GB of system memory by adding a 2 GB PC2-3200 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM in each of the eight DIMM slots. All supported system memory is addressable through direct memory access. The xSeries 336 server supports 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB PC2-3200 ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM memory. All supported DIMMs can coexist in the same system. Memory must be populated in pairs. Refer to the Planning information section for supported memory options.
  • To ensure proper air flow for cooling, the xSeries 336 server requires a rack with a perforated door, such as the NetBAY42 SR or NetBAY25 SR. An alternative is to remove the front door of rack cabinets where the door panel is of solid construction.
  • Microprocessor SMP upgrades must be of the same type and clock speed. Mixing microprocessors of different speeds or cache size is not supported.
  • Use the version of ServerGuide that is shipped with the system, or a later version, to load software and drivers. Earlier versions of ServerGuide may not be compatible with the server.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities: The xSeries 336 server and related options are designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with the system and options.

Configuration information

Bay configuration: The xSeries 336 server supports either four 2.5-in Ultra320 SCSI hot-swap HDDs or two 3.5-in Ultra320 SCSI. There are no SATA HDD models for the dual-core Xeon processor. Models that do not have the 2.5-in bays come with a DVD-ROM. All models are open bay models.

Models shipped with four 2.5-in Ultra320 SCSI hot-swap HDDs do not have a DVD-ROM. To install an operating system, you must either perform a network-based installation or use an external USB DVD or CD-ROM drive.

Models using the DVD-ROM are cabled directly to the IDE port.

Cabling — Standard Non-RAID configurations: xSeries 336 hot-swap models contain a DASD backplane supporting up to four hot-swap, SCA-2-compliant drive bays. The backplane is connected to the internal connector of the integrated Ultra320 SCSI controller through a 16-bit LVD SCSI cable.

Rack installations: xSeries 336 1U rack-drawer models are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 711.1 mm (28 in) deep devices, such as the NetBAY42U ER and NetBAY42U SR. Installation into some of the older Netfinity® racks (9306900, 9306910, 9306200) requires a rack extension kit for proper cable bend radius and cooling.

If an xSeries 336 server is mounted in a non-IBM rack, the rack must satisfy the following specifications:

  • The rack must meet EIA-310-D standards for mounting flanges and hole locations.
  • The front-to-rear distance of the mounting flanges must be between 457.2 and 762 mm (24 and 30 in).
  • The thickness of the mounting flanges must be between 1.9 and 3.3 mm (0.08 and 0.13 in).
  • The mounting flanges must have either 7.1-mm (0.28-in) diameter holes or 9.6-mm (0.38-in) square holes on the standard EIA hole spacing.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 50 mm (1.97 in) between the front mounting flange and inside of the front door for appropriate cooling.
  • The rack must have a minimum depth of 166 mm (6.53 in) between the rear mounting flange and inside of the rear door to install the server and provide cable management space.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between the front and rear mounting flanges must be 467 mm (18.2 in) to accommodate the width of the server and the slide mounting brackets.
  • The minimum side-to-side clearance in the rack between each door and the mounting flanges must be 484 mm (19.1 in) to accommodate the slide mounting brackets.
  • The rack must include perforated front and rear doors and must not prevent the flow of cool air into or out of the rack.
  • The weight-handling capacity of the rack must be able to support the maximum rack configuration, including all servers, external cables, power distribution units, and so on.
  • The rack must provide proper stabilization so that the rack does not become unstable when servers are pulled out for service.

Processor options: These xSeries 336 server models are an Intel Xeon processor system that supports internal processing speeds of up to 2.8 GHz and processing operations to memory and the PCI bus at 133 MHz. It contains an integrated, full-speed 4 MB ECC L2 cache. This system supports two-way SMP applications with the standard Xeon dual-core processor and four-way SMP through installation in the second processor slot of a second dual-core processor.

Supported processor options: The following processor options are supported:

  • xSeries 2.8 GHz 800 MHz 4MB L2 Cache Upgrade with Xeon dual-core processor and EM64T (25R8908)

Supported memory options: The following memory options are supported:

  • 512 MB PC2-3200 (2 x 256 MB) ECC DDR2 Non Chipkill™ SDRAM RDIMM (73P3523)
  • 1 GB PC2-3200 (2 x 512 MB) ECC DDR2 Non Chipkill SDRAM RDIMM (73P3522)
  • 1 GB PC2-3200 (2 x 512 MB) ECC DDR2 SDRAM RDIMM (73P2865)
  • 2 GB PC2-3200 ECC double data rate (DDR2) SDRAM RDIMM (73P2866)

Power considerations: The xSeries 336 sever includes a standard 585-watt power supply. This power supply is capable of providing sufficient power to run the server fully configured with supported devices.

Cable orders: The dual 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex, Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the xSeries 336 server, are connected directly to independent RJ-45 connectors. The RJ-45 connectors provides a 10/100/1000 Base-T interface (either at half- or full-duplex) for connecting twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network. Cabling is not included with the server. To connect the Ethernet controller to a repeater or switch, use a UTP cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100 Mbps, or higher, Category 5e, or better, cabling must be used.

There are no additional cabling requirements, other than for system power, keyboard, mouse, and monitor connections.

Installability: The xSeries 336 server requires about 20 minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install an operating system, additional adapters, or features.
