Power Supply, 750 Watt, -48V DC, Hot-swap, Base and Redundant (#EB3H)

This feature provides a -48V DC telecommunications industry-standard power source, either as the primary power supply in the system or the secondary power supply for redundant power. The ac and dc power supplies cannot be mixed in a system. Two power supplies are required on an order for the IBM Power System S822 and S822L.

Flexible Thermal Settings for NEBS Applications (#0709)

This feature enables resets thermal tolerance of the system to higher limits specified by NEBS Level 3-compliant specifications.

Technical information

NEBS/ETSI and -48V DC Power Configurations features 0709 and EB3H are intended for usage in unique applications normally associated with the harsh environments of remotely located, mobile switching centers only and should be used with awareness of the intended application environment and potential limitations. NEBS/ETSI mode activation (#0709) overrides normal thermal and cooling operating limits and may cause undesirable performance in standard datacenter environments. Total power capacity of the 750 Watt, -48V DC power (#EB3H) limits normal configuration options and should only be used outside of recommended configurations with guidance from IBM.

The IBM Power System S822 and S822L systems were testing for Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) / European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) conformance using memory DIMMs, network adapters, and storage options most commonly requested for telco applications. Additional features may be qualified in the future, as requested by our clients. The scope of the conformance testing included additional standards (known as NEBS Level 3+) requested by some telecommunications network providers. Compliance testing was performed by a certified Independent Testing Laboratories (ITL), selected by IBM based on demonstrated competence in performing such testing, ongoing training programs, audit quality, and certification in nationally recognized quality programs for testing laboratories.

For additional guidance on NEBS/ETSI conforming applications of the Power System S822 and S822L, and usage of 750 watt -48V DC power supplies, consult your IBM sales specialist or visit

Feature conversions

The existing components being replaced during a model or feature conversion become the property of IBM and must be returned.

Feature conversions are always implemented on a "quantity of one for quantity of one" basis. Multiple existing features may not be converted to a single new feature. Single existing features may not be converted to multiple new features.

The following conversions will be supported in eConfig on November 11, 2014 customers:

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

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

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing 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. Its 24x7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic 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. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since 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 Support website at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by 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 Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
