PowerVM

PowerVM, which delivers industrial-strength virtualization for AIX and Linux environments on POWER® processor-based systems, provides a virtualization-oriented performance monitor, and performance statistics are available through the HMC. These performance statistics can be used to understand the workload characteristics and to prepare for capacity planning.

Power S922 (9009-22G) Capacity Backup (CBU) for IBM i

The Power S922 (9009-22G) CBU designation enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and IBM i user license entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system for HA and DR operations. 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 IBM i user license 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 new CBU system is registered as a pair with the proposed primary system and the configuration is approved, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and IBM i user license 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 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 intent of the CBU offering is to enable regular role-swap operations.

The primary systems for a Power S922 (9009-22G) CBU server with its IBM i P10 software tier can be a POWER9 or POWER8® server with a P10 or P20 software tier listed below:

  • Power S824 (8286-42A)
  • Power S814 6-core or 8-core (8286-41A)
  • Power S822 (8284-22A)
  • Power S924 (9009-42A)
  • Power S924 (9009-42G)
  • Power S914 6-core or 8-core (9009-41A)
  • Power S914 6-core or 8-core (9009-41G)
  • Power S922 (9009-22A)
  • Power S922 (9009-22G)

The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system. The IBM i Solution Editions are not eligible for CBU status.

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. To be in compliance, the CBU will be configured in a such a manner that there will be no out-of-compliance messages prior to a failover. An activated processor(s) must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You can then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the minimum 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 records 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 IBM i user entitlements, you must have more than the minimum number of IBM i user entitlements on a primary server. You can then transfer any IBM i user entitlements above the minimum, assuming the total IBM i users on the primary system do not require the IBM i entitlement you want to transfer during the time of the transfer. The Power S824 and Power S924 servers do not have user entitlements that can be transferred, and only processor license entitlements can be transferred. The minimum number of IBM i users on the POWER9 and POWER8 with IBM i user entitlements are:

  • Power S814 6-core or 8-core (8286-41A): 10 users
  • Power S822 (8284-22A): 10 users
  • Power S914 6-core or 8-core (9009-41A): 10 users
  • Power S914 6-core or 8-core (9009-41G): 10 users
  • Power S922 (9009-22A): 10 users
  • Power S922 (9009-22G): 10 users

For example, if you have a 2-core server as your primary system with two IBM i processor license entitlements (one above the minimum) and 50 IBM i user entitlements (20 above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to one IBM i entitlement and up to 20 user entitlements. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor and user license 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. For CBU registration, terms and conditions, and further information, see the IBM Power Systems: Capacity BackUp website.

Power S922 and IBM i

IBM i support is provided at a price-attractive P10 software tier even though the Power S922 has two sockets. For the 8-core, 10-core, and 11-core processors features #EP58, #EP59, and #EP5B there are limitations to the maximum size of the partition, and all I/O must be virtualized through VIOS. Up to four cores (real or virtual) per IBM i partition are supported. Multiple IBM i partitions can be created and run concurrently, and each individual partition can have up to four cores.

For the 1-core processor feature #EP5Y, IBM i runs natively and VIOS is not supported. IBM i SW tier for #EP5Y is P05.

128 GB DDR4 Memory EM65 0 32

Note: Different sizes and configurations run at different frequencies of 2133, 2400, and 2666 Mbps.

Power supply

  • Two power supplies supporting a rack: 1+1 1400 Watt 200 - 240 Volt (#EB2M)

Redundant fans

Redundant fans are standard.

Power cords

Two power cords are required. The Power S922 server supports power cord 4.3 m (14 ft), Drawer to Wall/IBM PDU (250V/10A) in the base shipment group. See the feature listing for other options.

PCIe slots

The Power S922 server has up to 14 (four U.2 NVMe plus up to ten PCIe add in cards) PCIe hot-plug slots, providing excellent configuration flexibility and expandability. For more information about PCIe slots, see the Rack-integrated system with I/O expansion drawer section below.

With two POWER9 processor single-chip modules (SCM), eleven PCIe slots are available, three are x16 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots (CAPI), one is x8 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots (with x16 connectors) (CAPI), one is x8 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots (with x16 connectors), two are x16 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots, and four are x8 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots (one of these slots is used for the required base LAN adapter).

With one POWER9 processor SCM, eight PCIe slots are available. One is x16 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slot (CAPI), one is x8 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slot (with x16 connector) (CAPI), two are x16 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots, and four are x8 Gen4 low-profile, half-length slots (one of these slots is used for the required base LAN adapter).

The x16 slots can provide up to twice the bandwidth of x8 slots because they offer twice as many PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen4 slots can support up to twice the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen3 slot, and PCIe Gen3 slots can support up to twice the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen2 slot, assuming an equivalent number of PCIe lanes.

At least one PCIe Ethernet adapter is required on the server by IBM to ensure proper manufacture, test, and support of the server. One of the x8 PCIe slots is used for this required adapter.

These servers are smarter about energy efficiency when cooling the PCIe adapter environment. They sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots and, if an adapter requires higher levels of cooling, they automatically speed up fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters. Note that faster fans increase the sound level of the server. Higher wattage PCIe adapters include the PCIe3 SAS adapters and SSD/flash PCIe adapters (#EJ10, #EJ14, and #EJ0J).

NVMe drive slots, SAS bays, and storage backplane options

  • Storage backplane with two front PCIe Gen4 capable NVMe U.2 drive slots (#EJ1V)
  • Storage backplane with four front PCIe Gen4 capable NVMe U.2 drive slots (#EJ1W)
  • Base storage backplane 8 SFF-3 bays (#EJ1F)
  • Split backplane 4 + 4 SFF-3 bays (#EJ1H)
  • Expanded function storage backplane 8 SFF-3 bays/single IOA with write cache (#EJ1G)

The backplane option provides SFF-3 SAS bays in the system unit. These 2.5-inch or small form factor (SFF) SAS bays can contain SAS drives (HDD or SSD) mounted on a Gen3 tray or carrier. Thus the drives are designated SFF-3. SFF-1 or SFF-2 drives do not fit in an SFF-3 bay. All SFF-3 bays support concurrent maintenance or hot-plug capability.

This backplane option uses leading-edge, integrated SAS RAID controller technology designed and patented by IBM. A custom-designed PowerPC® based ASIC chip is the basis of these SAS RAID controllers and provides RAID 0/RAID 5/RAID 6/RAID 10 functionality with HDDs and SSDs. Internally, SAS ports are implemented and provide plenty of bandwidth. The integrated SAS controllers are placed in dedicated slots and do not reduce the number of available PCIe slots.

The feature EJ1F storage backplane option provides eight SFF-3 bays and one SAS controller with zero write cache.

By optionally adding the feature EJ1H split backplane, a second integrated SAS controller with no write cache is provided, and the eight SSF-3 bays are logically divided into two sets of four bays. Each SAS controller independently runs one of the four-bay sets of drives.

This backplane option support HDDs or SSDs or a mixture of HDDs and SSDs in the SFF-3 bays. Mixing HDDs and SSDs applies even within a single set of four bays of the split backplane option. Note that if you are mixing HDDs and SSDs, they must be in separate arrays (unless using the Easy Tier® function).

This backplane option can offer different drive protection options: RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, or RAID 10. RAID 5 requires a minimum of three drives of the same capacity. RAID 6 requires a minimum of four drives of the same capacity. RAID 10 requires a minimum of two drives. Hot spare capability is supported with RAID 5, or RAID 6, or RAID 10.

Note that RAID 5 and RAID 6 result in more drive write activity than mirroring or than unprotected drives.

This backplane option is supported by AIX, Linux, and VIOS. It is highly recommended but not required that the drives be protected.

If you need a change after the server is installed, the backplane option can be changed. For example, the feature EJ1H split backplane feature can be added to an existing feature EJ1F base storage backplane.

Unlike the hot-plug PCIe slots and SAS bays, concurrent maintenance is not available for the integrated SAS controllers. Scheduled downtime is required if a service action is required for these integrated resources.

In addition to supporting HDDs and SSDs in the SFF-3 SAS bays, the expanded function storage backplane feature EJ1G supports the optional attachment of an EXP12SX/EXP24SX drawer. All bays are accessed by both of the integrated SAS controllers. The bays support concurrent hot-plug maintenance.

Cable management arm

A folding arm is attached to the server's rails at the rear of the server. The server's power cords and the cables from the PCIe adapters or integrated ports run through the arm and into the rack. The arm enables the server to be pulled forward on its rails for service access to PCIe slots, memory, processors, and so on without disconnecting the cables from the server. Approximately 1 meter (3 feet) of cord or cable length is needed for the arm.

Integrated I/O ports

In addition to the integrated SAS controllers and SAS ports associated with the storage backplane, there are two HMC ports, one system port, and three USB ports. The two HMC ports are RJ45 supporting 1 Gb Ethernet connections.

The one system port is RJ45 and is supported by AIX and Linux for attaching serial devices such as an asynchronous device like a console. If the device does not have an RJ45 connection, a converter cable such as feature 3930 can provide a 9-pin D-shell connection. Note that serial devices can have very individual characteristics (different pin outs), and feature 3930 may not be appropriate for all possible devices. In this case, the user should acquire an OEM converter cable appropriate for their device.

Four USB-3 ports are available for general client use; two are located in front and two in the rear. Additionally, there are two USB-2 ports in the service processor located in the rear of the system. These ports are for limited client use. A converter cable ECCF provides a USB-to-9-pin D-Shell connection for this function.

Rack-integrated system with I/O expansion drawer

Regardless of the rack-integrated system to which the PCIe Gen3 I/O expansion drawer is attached, if the expansion drawer is ordered as factory integrated, the PDUs in the rack will be placed horizontally by default to enhance cable management.

Expansion drawers complicate the access to vertical PDUs if located at the same height. IBM recommends accommodating PDUs horizontally on racks containing one or more PCIe Gen3 I/O expansion drawers.

After the rack with expansion drawers is delivered, you can rearrange the PDUs from horizontal to vertical. However, the configurator will continue to consider the PDUs as being placed horizontally for the matter of calculating the free space still available in the rack.

Vertical PDUs can be used only if CSRP (#0469) is on the order. When specifying CSRP, you should provide the locations where the PCIe Gen3 I/O expansion drawers must be placed to avoid locating them adjacent to vertical PDU locations, EIA 6 through 16 and 21 through 31.

The I/O expansion drawer can be migrated from a POWER8 to a POWER9 processor-based system. Only I/O cards supported on POWER9 in the I/O expansion drawer are allowed. Clients migrating the I/O expansion drawer configuration might have one or two PCIe3 6-slot fanout modules (#EMXF or #EMXG) installed in the rear of the I/O expansion drawer.

For a 2U server configuration with two processor modules, up to one I/O expansion drawer and two fanout modules (#EMXF or #EMXG) connected to two optical cable adapters (#EJ05) are supported. For a 2U server configuration with one processor module, up to one I/O expansion drawer and one fanout module (#EMXF or #EMXG) connected to one optical cable adapter (#EJ05) is supported (the right PCIe module bay must be populated by a filler module).

For a 2U server configuration with two processor modules, up to two I/O expansion drawers and three fanout modules (#EMXH) connected to three optical cable adapters (#EJ1R) are supported (the right PCIe module bay for the second I/O expansion drawer must be populated by a filler module). For a 2U server configuration with one processor module, up to one I/O expansion drawer and one fanout module (#EMXH) connected to one optical cable adapter (#EJ1R) is supported (the right PCIe module bay must be populated by a filler module).

Limitations:

  • Mixing of prior PCIe3 fanout modules (#EMXF or #EMXG) with PCIe3 fanout module (feature #EMXH) in the same I/O expansion drawer is not allowed.
  • Mixing of I/O expansion drawer with prior PCIe3 fanout modules (#EMXF or #EMXG) and I/O expansion drawer with PCIe3 fanout module (#EMXH) in same configuration is allowed.
  • PCIe3 optical cable adapters (#EJ1R) require use of optical cables (#ECCX or #ECCY) or copper cable (#ECCS).

RDX docking station

The RDX docking station EUA4 accommodates RDX removable disk cartridges of any capacity. The disk is in a protective rugged cartridge enclosure that plugs into the docking station. The docking station holds one removable rugged disk drive/cartridge at a time. The rugged removable disk cartridge and docking station performs saves, restores, and backups similar to a tape drive. This docking station can be an excellent entry capacity/performance option.

EXP24SX SAS storage enclosure (#ESLS)

The EXP24SX is a storage expansion enclosure with twenty-four 2.5-inch SFF SAS bays. It supports up to 24 hot-plug HDDs or SSDs in only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP24SX SFF bays use SFF Gen2 (SFF-2) carriers or trays.

The EXP24SX drawer feature ESLS is supported on the Power S914, Power S922, and Power S924 servers by AIX, IBM i, Linux, and VIOS.

With AIX/Linux/VIOS, the EXP24SX can be ordered with four sets of 6 bays (mode 4), two sets of 12 bays (mode 2), or one set of 24 bays (mode 1). With IBM i, only one set of 24 bays (mode 1) is supported. It is possible to change the mode setting in the field using software commands along with a specifically documented procedure. The predecessor EXP24S did not support this mode change in the field.

Important: When changing modes, a skilled, technically qualified person should follow the special documented procedures. Improperly changing modes can potentially destroy existing RAID sets, prevent access to existing data, or allow other partitions to access another partition's existing data. Hire an expert to assist if you are not familiar with this type of reconfiguration work.

Four mini-SAS HD ports on the EXP24SX are attached to PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters or attached to an integrated SAS controller in a POWER9 scale-out server such as the Power H922 or Power H924 servers. The following PCIe3 SAS adapters support the EXP24SX:

  • PCIe3 RAID SAS Adapter Quad-port 6 Gb x8 (#EJ0J)
  • PCIe3 12 GB Cache RAID Plus SAS Adapter Quad-port 6 Gb x8 (#EJ14)

Earlier-generation PCIe2 or PCIe1 SAS adapters are not supported with the EXP24SX.

The attachment between the EXP24SX and the PCIe3 SAS adapters or integrated SAS controllers is through SAS YO12 or X12 cables. X12 and YO12 cables are designed to support up to 12 Gb SAS. The PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters support up to 6 Gb throughput. The EXP24SX has been designed to support up to 12 Gb throughput if future SAS adapters support that capability. All ends of the YO12 and X12 cables have mini-SAS HD narrow connectors. Cable options are:

  • X12 cable: 3-meter copper (#ECDJ)
  • YO12 cables: 1.5-meter copper (#ECDT), 3-meter copper (#ECDU)
  • 3M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5R)
  • 5M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5S)
  • 10M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5T)
  • 15M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5U)
  • 20M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5V)
  • 30M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5W)
  • 50M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5X)
  • 100M 100 GbE Optical Cable QSFP28 (AOC) (#EB5Y)

An AA12 cable interconnecting a pair of PCIe3 12 GB cache adapters (two #EJ14) is not attached to the EXP24SX. These higher-bandwidth cables could support 12 Gb throughput if future adapters support that capability. Copper feature ECE0 is 0.6 meters long, ECE3 is 3 meters long, and optical AA12 feature ECE4 is 4.5 meters long.

One no-charge specify code is used with each EXP24SX I/O drawer (#ESLS) to communicate to IBM configurator tools and IBM Manufacturing which mode setting, adapter, and SAS cable are needed. With this specify code, no hardware is shipped. The physical adapters, controllers, and cables must be ordered with their own chargeable feature numbers. There are more technically supported configurations than are represented by these specify codes. IBM Manufacturing and IBM configurator tools such as e-config only understand and support EXP24SX configurations represented by these specify codes.

All of the above EXP24SX specify codes assume a full set of adapters and cables able to run all the SAS bays configured. The following specify codes communicate to IBM Manufacturing a lower-cost partial configuration is to be configured where the ordered adapters and cables can run only a portion of the SAS bays. The future MES addition of adapters and cables can enable the remaining SAS bays for growth. The following specify codes are used:

Specify Mode Adapter/Controller Cable to drawer Environment
#EJWA (1/2 of #EJW7) Mode 2 One (unpaired) #EJ0J/#EJ0M 1 YO12 cables AIX/Linux/VIOS
#EJWB (1/2 of #EJW4) Mode 2 Two (one pair) #EJ0J/#EJ0M 1 X12 cable AIX/Linux/VIOS

#EJWH (1/2 of #EJWJ) Mode 2 Two (one pair) #EJ14 1 X12 cables AIX/Linux/VIOS

An EXP24SX drawer in mode 4 can be attached to two or four SAS controllers and provide a great deal of configuration flexibility. For example, if using unpaired feature EJ0J adapters, these EJ0J adapters could be in the same server in the same partition, same server in different partitions, or even different servers.

An EXP24SX drawer in mode 2 has similar flexibility. If the I/O drawer is in mode 2, then half of its SAS bays can be controlled by one pair of PCIe3 SAS adapters, such as a 12 GB write cache adapter pair (#EJ14), and the other half can be controlled by a different PCIe3 SAS 12 GB write cache adapter pair or by zero-write-cache PCIe3 SAS adapters.

Note that for simplicity, IBM configurator tools such as e-config assume that the SAS bays of an individual I/O drawer are controlled by one type of SAS adapter. As a client, you have more flexibility than e-config understands.

A maximum of twenty-four 2.5-inch SSDs or 2.5-inch HDDs is supported in the EXP24SX 24 SAS bays. There can be no mixing of HDDs and SSDs in the same mode 1 drawer. HDDs and SSDs can be mixed in a mode 2 or mode 4 drawer, but they cannot be mixed within a logical split of the drawer. For example, in a mode 2 drawer with two sets of 12 bays, one set could hold SSDs and one set could hold HDDs, but you cannot mix SSDs and HDDs in the same set of 12 bays.

The indicator feature EHS2 helps IBM Manufacturing understand where SSDs are placed in a mode 2 or a mode 4 EXP24SX drawer. On one mode 2 drawer, use a quantity of one feature EHS2 to have SSDs placed in just half the bays, and use two EHS2 features to have SSDs placed in any of the bays. Similarly, on one mode 4 drawer, use a quantity of one, two, three, or four EHS2 features to indicate how many bays can have SSDs. With multiple EXP24SX orders, IBM Manufacturing will have to guess which quantity of feature ESH2 is associated with each EXP24SX. Consider using CSP (#0456) to reduce guessing.

Two-and-a-half-inch small form factor (SFF) SAS HDDs and SSDs are supported in the EXP24SX. All drives are mounted on Gen2 carriers/trays and thus named SFF-2 drives.

The EXP24SX drawer has many high-reliability design points:

  • SAS drive bays that support hot swap
  • Redundant and hot-plug-capable power and fan assemblies
  • Dual line cords
  • Redundant and hot-plug enclosure service modules (ESMs)
  • Redundant data paths to all drives
  • LED indicators on drives, bays, ESMs, and power supplies that support problem identification
  • Through the SAS adapters and controllers, drives can be protected with RAID and mirroring and hot-spare capability

Order two ESLA features for AC power supplies. The enclosure is shipped with adjustable depth rails and can accommodate 19-inch rack depths from 59.5 - 75 cm (23.4 - 29.5 in.). Slot filler panels are provided for empty bays when initially shipped from IBM.

EXP12SX SAS storage enclosure (#ESLL)

The EXP12SX is a storage expansion enclosure with twelve 3.5-inch LFF SAS bays. It supports up to 12 hot-plug HDDs in only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP12SX SFF bays use LFF Gen1 (LFF-1) carriers/trays. The 4k byte sector drives (#4096 or #4224) are supported. SSDs are not supported.

The EXP12SX drawer feature ESLL is supported on the Power S914, Power S922, and Power S924 servers by AIX, Linux, and VIOS.

With AIX/Linux/VIOS, the EXP12SX enclosure can be ordered with four sets of 3 bays (mode 4), two sets of 6 bays (mode 2), or one set of 12 bays (mode 1). The mode setting can be changed in the field using software commands along with a specifically documented procedure.

Important: When changing modes, it is very important that you follow the documented procedures. Improperly changing modes can potentially destroy existing RAID sets, prevent access to existing data, or allow other partitions to access another partition's existing data. Hire an expert to assist if you are not familiar with this type of reconfiguration work.

Four mini-SAS HD ports on the EXP12SX are attached to PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters or attached to an integrated SAS controller in a POWER9 scale-out server such as the Power S914, Power S922, or Power S924 servers. The following PCIe3 SAS adapters support the EXP12SX:

  • PCIe3 RAID SAS Adapter Quad-port 6 Gb x8 (#EJ0J)
  • PCIe3 12 GB Cache RAID Plus SAS Adapter Quad-port 6 Gb x8 (#EJ14)

Earlier generation PCIe2 or PCIe1 SAS adapters are not supported with the EXP12SX drawer.

The EXP12SX drawer and the PCIe3 SAS adapters or integrated SAS controllers are attached through SAS YO12 or X12 cables. X12 and YO12 cables are designed to support up to 12 Gb. The PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters support up to 6 Gb throughput. The EXP12SX has been designed to support up to 12 Gb throughput if future SAS adapters support that capability. All ends of the YO12 and X12 cables have mini-SAS HD narrow connectors. Cable options are:

  • X12 cable: 3-meter copper (#ECDJ)

An EXP12SX drawer in mode 4 can be attached to two or four SAS controllers and provide a great deal of configuration flexibility. For example, if using unpaired feature EJ0J adapters, these EJ0J adapters could be in the same server in the same partition, same server in different partitions, or even different servers.

Note that for simplicity, IBM configurator tools such as e-config assume that the SAS bays of an individual I/O drawer are controlled by one type of SAS adapter. As a client, you have more flexibility than e-config understands.

The 3.5-inch large form factor (LFF) SAS HDDs are supported in the EXP24SX. All drives are mounted on Gen1 carriers/trays and thus named LFF-1 drives. Only 4k byte sector drives are supported in the EXP24SX drawer. The 5xx byte sector drives are not announced or planned. Drives are 7200 rpm and sometimes referred to as nearline. These drives provide excellent cost per gigabyte. Note that formatting or rebuilding arrays on large disk drives can take hours. If higher performance is required, consider higher rpm disks or SSDs in the EXP24SX drawer.

The EXP12SX drawer has many high-reliability design points:

  • SAS bays that support hot swap
  • Redundant and hot-plug power and fan assemblies
  • Dual line cords
  • Redundant and hot-plug ESMs
  • Redundant data paths to all drives
  • LED indicators on drives, bays, ESMs, and power supplies that support problem identification
  • Through the SAS adapters and controllers, drives can be protected with RAID and mirroring and hot-spare capability

Order two ESLA features for AC power supplies. The enclosure is shipped with adjustable depth rails and can accommodate 19-inch rack depths from 59.5 - 75 cm (23.4 - 29.5 in.). Slot filler panels are provided for empty bays when initially shipped from IBM.

EXP24SX and EXP12SX enclosures can be mixed on the same server. EXP24SX and EXP12SX enclosures can be mixed on the same PCIe3 adapter.

PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer cabling option

A copper cabling option (#ECCS) is available for the scale-out servers. The cable option offers a much lower-cost connection between the server and the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer fanout modules. The currently available Active Optical Cable (AOC) offers much longer length cables, providing rack placement flexibility. AOC cables are also much thinner and have tighter bend radius and thus are much easier to cable in the rack.

The 3M Copper CXP Cable Pair (#ECCS) has the same performance and same reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) characteristics as the AOC cables. One copper cable length of 3 m is offered. Note that the cable management arm of the scale-out servers requires about 1 m of cable.

Like the AOC cable pair, the copper pair is cabled in the same manner. One cable attaches to the top CXP port in the PCIe adapter in the x16 PCIe slot in the server system unit and then attaches to the top CXP port in the fanout module in the I/O drawer. Its cable pair attaches to the bottom CXP port of the same PCIe adapter and to the bottom CXP port of the same fanout module. Note that the PCIe adapter providing the CXP ports on the server was named a PCIe3 optical cable adapter. In hindsight, this naming was unfortunate as the adapter's CXP ports are not unique to optical. But at the time, optical cables were the only connection option planned.

Copper and AOC cabling can be mixed on the same server. However, they cannot be mixed on the same PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer or mixed on the same fanout module.

Copper cables have the same operating system software prerequisites as AOC cables.

High-function (switched and monitored) Power Distribution Units (PDUs)

The high-function PDUs provide switching, better monitoring, and 50% more C19 receptacles than previous Power Systems PDUs. Depending on country wiring standards, either two or four full-price features are orderable.

  208 V 3-phase delta 200 V - 240 V 1-phase or 3-phase wye
12xC13 #EPTQ #EPTN
9xC19 #EPTL #EPTJ

These PDUs can be mounted vertically in rack-side pockets or they can be mounted horizontally. If mounted horizontally, they each use 1 EIA (1U) of rack space. See feature EPTH for horizontal mounting hardware, which is used when IBM Manufacturing doesn't automatically factory-install the PDU. Two RJ45 ports on the front of the PDU enable you to monitor each receptacle's electrical power usage and to remotely switch any receptacle on or off. The PDU is shipped with a generic PDU password. IBM strongly urges you to change the password upon installation. These PDUs do provide the same low price as the low-function 12xC13 PDU feature (#7188).

High-function (switched and monitored) PDUs plus

Hardware

  • IEC 62368-1 and IEC 60950 safety standard
  • A new product safety approval
  • No China 5000 m altitude or tropical restrictions
  • Detachable inlet for 3-phase delta-wired PDU with 30A, 50A, and 60A wall plugs
  • IBM Technology and Qualification approved components, such as Anti-Sulfur Resistors (ASR)
  • Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mb/s

9xC19 #ECJL/#ECJK #ECJJ/#ECJG

These PDUs can be mounted vertically in rack-side pockets or they can be mounted horizontally. If mounted horizontally, they each use one EIA (1U) of rack space. See feature EPTH for horizontal mounting hardware, which is used when IBM Manufacturing doesn't automatically factory-install the PDU. Two RJ45 ports on the front of the PDU enable the client to monitor each receptacle's electrical power usage and to remotely switch any receptacle on or off.

Recommendation: The PDU is shipped with a generic PDU password. IBM strongly urges you to change it upon installation.

Existing and new high-function (switched and monitored) PDUs have the same physical dimensions. New high-function (switched and monitored) PDUs can be supported in the same racks as existing PDUs. Mixing of PDUs in a rack on new orders is not allowed.

Also, all factory-integrated orders must have the same PDU line cord.

The PDU features ECJQ/ECJP and ECJL/ECJK with the Amphenol inlet connector require new PDU line cords:

  • #ECJ5 - 4.3 m (14-Ft) PDU to Wall 3PH/24A 200-240V Delta-wired Power Cord
  • #ECJ7 - 4.3 m (14-Ft) PDU to Wall 3PH/48A 200-240V Delta-wired Power Cord

No pigtail (like feature ELC0) is available because an Amphenol male inline connector is unavailable.

The PDU features ECJJ/ECJG and ECJN/ECJM with the UTG624-7SKIT4/5 inlet connector use the existing PDU line cord features 6653, 6667, 6489, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, 6658, 6491, or 6492.

High-function 12xC13 PDU plus 3-phase delta (#ECJQ/#ECJP)

This is an intelligent, switched 200 - 240 volt 3-phase delta AC PDU plus with twelve C13 receptacles on the front of the PDU. The PDU is mounted on the rear of the rack making the twelve C13 receptacles easily accessible. Each receptacle has a 20 amp circuit breaker. Three-phase delta-wired connectors have 4-pins and use three line conductors and a protective earth. The input is 200 - 240 volt line-to-line and the output is 200 - 240 volt line-to-line for three-phase delta PDUs.

The PDU can be mounted vertically in rack-side pockets, or it can be mounted horizontally. If mounted horizontally, it uses one EIA (1U) of rack space. See feature EPTH for horizontal mounting hardware.

Device power cords with a C20 plug connect to C19 PDU receptacles and are ordered separately. One wall line cord is also ordered separately and attaches to the Amphenol inlet connector. Supported line cords include features ECJ5 and ECJ7.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. 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.

Memory subsystem RAS

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

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 reports a service reference code when it detects surveillance loss. In the PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions

The Power Systems family does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting.

POWER9 processor functions

As in POWER8, the POWER9 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors.

Cache availability

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER9 processor in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, a threshold of correctable errors detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further operation without requiring a reboot in the PowerVM environment.

Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling prevents an 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 check stop. If the data is used, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or hypervisor owning the data; or the I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device.

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.

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 efficiently repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate impact to system operation. 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 client, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system help 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)
  • Lightpath service indicators
  • Service labels and service diagrams available on the system and delivered through IBM Knowledge Center
  • Step-by-step service procedures documented in IBM Knowledge Center or available through the Hardware Management Console
  • Automatic reporting of serviceable events to IBM through the Electronic Service Agent Call Home application
  • CRU videos planned to be available on the web at general availability
  • Mobile access to important customer service functions available by scanning a QR label

Service environment

In the PowerVM environment, 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) or REST API. An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely, or locally to the physical HMC that is in proximity of the server being serviced, log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The POWER9 processor-based platforms support several service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs or vHMCs is a supported option by the system with PowerVM. 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.
  • For non-HMC systems.
    • Full-system partition with PowerVM: A single partition owns all the server resources, and only one operating system may be installed. The primary service interface is through the operating system and the service processor.

Service interface

Support personnel can use the service interface to communicate with the service support applications in a server using an operator console, a graphical user interface on the management console or service processor, or an operating system terminal. The service interface helps to deliver a clear, concise view of available service applications, helping the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available through 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, hypervisor, and operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • LEDs
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC or vHMC with PowerVM

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 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 enclosure 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 in the PowerVM environment.

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.

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 so they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code with PowerVM, 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 boot-time diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics with PowerVM

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

  • Booting from the diagnostics CD, DVD, USB, or network
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file that is released with the firmware. An HMC is required for the concurrent firmware update with PowerVM. In addition, concurrent maintenance of PCIe adapters is supported with PowerVM. Concurrent maintenance of the Operator Panel is supported through ASMI. Additional concurrent maintenance includes power supplies, fans, and HDD/SSD drives.

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 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 such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies are installed.
  • 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 or replace certain serviceable hardware components.
  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and the 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 in a certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

QR labels

QR labels are placed on the system to provide access to key service functions through a mobile device. When the QR label is scanned, it will go to a landing page specific to that server which contains many of the service functions of interest while physically located at the server. These include things such as installation and repair instructions, service diagrams, reference code look up, and so on.

Packaging for service

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

  • Color coding (touch points): Blue-colored touch points delineate touchpoints on service components where the component can be safely handled for service actions such as removal or installation.
  • 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, or if the system continues to operate, the error will be reported to the operating system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached in the PowerVM environment, 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.

The system has the ability to call home through the operating system to report platform-recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices.

In the HMC-managed environment, a call home service request will be initiated from the HMC 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.

Live Partition Mobility

With Live Partition Mobility, users can migrate an AIX or IBM i partition running on one POWER partition system to another POWER system without disrupting services. The migration transfers the entire system environment, including processor state, memory, attached virtual devices, and connected users. It provides continuous operating system and application availability during planned partition outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults.

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.

Under PowerVM, 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 client location to the 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 most non-HMC-managed systems through Electronic Service Agent running on top of the operating system. 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. See the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronic Services

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution, which is dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM clients. 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 client's company business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

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 client and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM clients, 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. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, see the "Security" section at the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.

Benefits: increased uptime

Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by potentially 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 24x7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours client personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to help secure the monitoring, reporting, and storing of the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to help securely transmit either through the internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide clients a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a client's system.

For additional information, see the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.

More accurate reporting

Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, clients 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

By using the IBMid entered during activation, clients 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 clients 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 client's IBMid. 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, clients are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Technical information

Top rule

Specified operating environment

Physical specifications
  • Width: 482 mm (18.97 in.)
  • Depth: 766.5 mm (30.2 in.)
  • Height: 86.7 mm (3.4 in.)
  • Weight: 30.4 kg (67 lb)

To assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM industry-standard racks, review the installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment
  • Temperature: (nonoperating) 5 to 45 degrees Celsius (41 to 113 Fahrenheit); recommended temperature (operating) 18 to 27 degrees Celsius (64 to 80 Fahrenheit); allowable operating temperature 5 to 40 degrees Celsius (41 to 104 Fahrenheit)
  • Relative humidity: 8% - 85% (allowable operating humidity range); recommended 5.5 degrees Celsius (42 Fahrenheit) dew point to 60% RH and 15 degrees Celsius (59 Fahrenheit) dew point
  • Maximum dew point: 24 degrees C (75 Fahrenheit) (allowable operating)
  • Operating voltage: 1400 W PSU: 200 - 240 V AC
  • Operating frequency: 47/63 Hz
  • Maximum power consumption: 1880 watts (maximum)
  • Power factor: 0.98
  • Thermal output: 6,416 Btu/hour (maximum)
  • Power-source loading
    • 1.94 kVa (maximum configuration)
    • Maximum altitude: 3,050 m (10,000 ft)

    Note: The maximum measured value is the worst case power consumption expected from a fully populated server under an intensive workload. The maximum measured value also accounts for component tolerance and non-ideal operating conditions. Power consumption and heat load vary greatly by server configuration and utilization. The IBM Systems Energy Estimator should be used to obtain a heat output estimate based on a specific configuration.

Noise levels and declared A-weighted sound power level

  • Rack-mount system: 6.5 bels operating; 5.3 bels idling

See the Installation Planning Guide in IBM Knowledge Center for additional detail.

For example, the actual power noise level is impacted by multiple factors, including:

  • Enablement of the Turbo mode increases fan speed, which increases power noise levels.
  • Usage of the Turbo mode further increases fan speed, which further increases power noise levels.
  • Using higher wattage PCIe adapters increases fan speed, which increases power noise levels.
  • Placing multiple servers in a rack increases the total power noise level.
  • Placing servers in racks with acoustic doors reduces the power noise levels.

Hardware Management Console (HMC) machine code

An HMC is required to manage the Power S922 server implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER7®, POWER8, and POWER9 processor-based servers can be supported by a single HMC.

Planned HMC hardware and software support:

  • X86 based - 7042-CR7, 7042-CR8, 7042-CR9
    • vHMC x86
  • POWER8 based Open Power: 7063-CR1
    • vHMC PowerVM based LPAR

If you are 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 because HMC code must always be equal to or higher than the managed server's firmware. Access to firmware and machine code updates is conditioned on entitlement and license validation in accordance with IBM policy and practice. IBM may verify entitlement through customer number, serial number, electronic restrictions, or any other means or methods employed by IBM at its discretion.

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; see the Fix Level Recommendation Tool website.

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

The HMC code latest level contains the following:

  • Support for managing Power S922, Power S924, and Power S914 systems.
  • Support for the new HMC model 7063-CR1.
  • Support for PowerVM functions such as the new HMC GUI interface for VIOS management.
  • GUI for HMC's Performance and Capacity Monitoring function.
  • An HMC command to initiate a remote restart operation. This removes the requirement of VMControl for the PowerVM Remote Restart function.
  • For PowerVM GUI functions, VIOS is recommended.

For clients installing systems higher than the EIA 29 position (location of the rail that supports the rack-mounted server) in any IBM or non-IBM rack, acquire approved tools outlined in the server specifications section at IBM Knowledge Center. In situations where IBM service is required and the recommended tools are not available, there could be delays in repair actions.

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

IBM Solid State Drive (SSD) and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) devices identified in this document may have a maximum number of write cycles. IBM SDD and NMVe device failures will be replaced during standard warranty and maintenance period for devices that have not reached the maximum number of write cycles. Devices that reach this limit may fail to operate according to specifications and must be replaced at the client's expense. Individual service life may vary and can be monitored using an operating system command.

The IBM warranty covers feature number EB4Z. For warranty terms associated with feature number EB3Z and the Lift tool based on GenieLift GL-8, see the separate warranty terms provided by Genie found in the Genie Operator's Manual at the Genie website.

For clients installing systems higher than the EIA 29 position (location of the rail that supports the rack-mounted server) in any IBM or non-IBM rack, acquire approved tools outlined in the server specifications section at IBM Knowledge Center. In situations where IBM service is required and the recommended tools are not available, there could be delays in repair actions.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically through an IBM website.
