Enable rapid service delivery with built-in virtualization and CoD for processors and memory to help provide seamless, nondisruptive growth and increased flexibility for multiple systems in an enterprise private cloud.

By default, its Power Management mode is set to Max Performance. This mode can dynamically optimize the processor frequency at any given time based on CPU utilization and operating environmental conditions. For a description of this feature and other power management options available for this server, see the IBM EnergyScale™ for POWER9 Processor-Based Systems website.

Each new POWER9 processor single chip module (SCM) contains two memory controllers. Four 8-core typical 3.9 - 4.0 GHz (max) or four 10-core typical 3.7 - 3.9 GHz (max) or four 11-core typical 3.58 - 3.9 GHz (max) or four 12-core typical 3.55 - 3.9 GHz (max) are used in each system node, providing 32 cores to a 128-core system (max)(#EFP1) or 40 cores to a 160-core system (max)(#EFP2) or 44-core to a 176-core system (max)(#EFP4) or 48 cores to a 192-core system (max) (#EFP3). As few as eight cores in the system can be activated or up to 100% of the cores in the system can be activated. Incrementing one core at a time is available through built-in Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) functions to the full capacity of the system.

The System Control Unit provides redundant Flexible Service Processors (FSPs), the Operator Panel, and the System Vital Product (VPD). And optional external DVD can be attached with a USB cable.

IBM custom DIMMs (CDIMMs) are high-performance, high-reliability, high-function memory cards that contain L4 cache buffer, and 1600 MHz DRAM memory.

Power System E980 CDIMMs are available as 128 GB (#EF20), 256 GB (#EF21), 512 GB (#EF22), 1024 GB (#EF23), and 2048 GB (#EF24) memory features. Each memory feature provides four CDIMMs. Each system node has 32 CDIMM slots that support a maximum of 8 memory features. Using 2048 GB CDIMM features yields a maximum of 16 TB per node. A two-node system has a maximum of 16 memory features and 32 TB. A four-node system has a maximum of 64 TB capacity. Minimum memory activations of 50% of the installed capacity are required.

The 19-inch PCIe 4U I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) provides 12 slots to hold PCIe adapters that cannot be placed into a system node. Up to four PCIe I/O expansion drawers can be attached per system node. For example, a two-node system can have a maximum of eight PCIe I/O expansion drawers for a total of eighty-six PCIe slots in the I/O drawers with no PCIe slots in the system node.

Direct attached storage is supported with the EXP24SX SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#ESLS), an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays.

With Power Enterprise Pools, IBM continues to enhance the ability to freely move Mobile Processor and Mobile Memory activations from one system to another system in the same pool, without the need for IBM involvement. This capability enables the movement of resources not only between Power E980 systems, but also between Power E980 servers and previous generation E870, E870C, E880, and E880C systems, resulting in unsurpassed flexibility for workload balancing and system maintenance.

  • Eight PCIe Gen4 x16 I/O low-profile expansion slots per system node (maximum 32 in a 4-node system)
  • One USB port to support external attached DVD
  • Redundant hot-swap AC power supplies in each system node drawer
  • Two HMC ports in the system control unit
  • Optional PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer with PCIe slots:
    • Zero to two drawers per system node drawer (#EMX0).
    • Each I/O drawer holds one or two 6-slot PCIe Fan-out Modules (#EMXG).
    • Each Fan-out Module attaches to the system node through a PCIe Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ07).

System nodes

Each 5 EIA or 5U system node of the system has four air-cooled SCMs optimized for performance and scalability. The E980 SCMs can have eight, ten, eleven, or twelve POWER9 cores running at up to 4.0 GHz and simultaneous multithreading executing up to eight threads per core. Each SCM has dual memory controllers to support up to 128 GB off-chip eDRAM L4 cache to deliver up to 230 GBps of peak memory bandwidth or 920 GBps per node. Using PCIe Gen4 I/O controllers, which are also integrated onto each SCM to further reduce latency, up to 545 GBps peak I/O bandwidth is available per node. Thus a Power E980 system bandwidth can help provide maximum processor performance , enabling applications to run faster and be more responsive.

Each system node has 32 CDIMM slots and can support up to 16 TB of DDR4 memory. Thus, a four-node server can have up to 64 TB of memory. The system node has four internal NVMe U.2 (2.5" 7 mm form factor) SSDs. Each SSD is driven from a x4 PCIe connection. Each system node has eight PCIe slots, which are all x16, low profile. Thus, a four-node server can have up to 32 PCIe slots. PCIe expansion units can optionally expand the number of PCIe slots on the server.

A system node is ordered using a processor feature. Each processor feature will deliver a set of four identical SCMs in one system node. All processor features in the system must be identical. Cable features are required to connect system node drawers to the system control unit and to other system nodes.

Processor core activations

Each IM Power System E980 server requires a minimum of eight permanent processor core activations, using either static activations or Linux on Power activations. This minimum is per system, not per node. The rest of the cores can be permanently or temporary activated or remain inactive (dark) until needed. The activations are not specific to hardware cores or SCMs or nodes. They are known to the system as a total number of activations of different types and used or assigned by the Power hypervisor appropriately.

A variety of activations fit different usage and pricing options. Static activations are permanent and support any type of application environment on this server. Mobile activations are ordered against a specific server, but can be moved to any server within the Power Enterprise Pool and can support any type of application. Mobile-enabled activations are technically static, but can be converted to mobile at no charge when logistically or administratively eligible. Linux on Power activations can only run Linux workloads. Temporary activations are used for CoD - Elastic, Utility, and Trial options.

48-core (#EFP3) 44-core (#EFP4) 40-core (#EFP2) 32-core (#EFP1)
1-core static activation (#EFPC) 1-core static activation (#EFP9) 1-core static activation (#EFPB) 1-core static activation (#EFPA)
1-core mobile-enabled activation (#EFPG) 1-core mobile-enabled activation (#EFPN) 1-core mobile-enabled activation (#EFPF) 1-core mobile-enabled activation (#EFPE)
1-core Power Linux (#ELBM) 1-core Power Linux (#ELBQ) 1-core Power Linux (#ELBL) 1-core Power Linux (#ELBK)

System control unit

The 2U system control unit provides redundant system master Flexible Service Processor (FSP). Additionally, it contains the Operator Panel, the System VPD, and external attached DVD. One system control unit is required for each server. A unique feature number is not used to order the system control unit. One is shipped with each E980 server. Two service processors (FSPs) in the system control unit are ordered using two EFFP features. All system nodes connect to the system control unit using the cable features EFCA, EFCB, EFCC, and EFCD.

The system control unit is powered from the system nodes. UPIC cables provide redundant power to the system control unit. In a single node system, two UPIC cables are attached to system node 1. In a 2-node, 3-node, or 4-node system, one UPIC cable attaches to system node 1 and one UPIC cable attaches to system node 2. They are ordered with features EFCA. Only one UPIC cable is enough to power the system control unit, and the others are in place for redundancy.

If the optional DVD feature EUA5 is ordered, it attaches to the native USB ports in the system (one in the front of the System Control Unit or the several in the rear of nodes 1 and 2).

Memory

IBM-custom DIMMs (CDIMMs) are extremely high-performance, high-reliability, high-function memory cards that contain L4 cache, intelligence, and 1600 MHz DRAM memory. Both DDR3 and DDR4 technology is employed and both provide the same 1600 MHz performance. CDIMMs are placed in CDIMM slots in the system node.

Each system node has 32 memory CDIMM slots, and at least half of the memory slots are always physically filled. Eight CDIMM slots are local to each of the four SCMs in the server, but SCMs and their cores have access to all the other memory in the server. At least half of the eight memory slots for each SCM must physically be filled. When filling the other four memory slots in the SCM, a quantity of four CDIMMs must be used. Thus, the CDIMM slots of the SCMs are either 50% or 100% filled. The system node (four SCMs) CDIMM slots can have 16, 20, 24, 28, or 32 CDIMMs physically installed (quad plugging rules).

To assist with the quad plugging rules above, four CDIMMs are ordered using one memory feature number. Select from 128 GB feature EF20 (4 x 32 DDR4), 256 GB feature EF21 (4 x 64 DDR4), 512 GB feature EF22 (4 x 128 DDR4), 1024 GB feature EF23 (4 x 256 DDR4), or 2048 GB feature EF24 (4 x 512 DDR4).

All CDIMMs must be identical on the same SCM so if using eight CDIMMs, both memory features on an SCM must be identical. A different SCM in the same system node can use a different memory feature. For example, one system node could technically use 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1024 GB, and 2048 GB memory features. Note that DDR3 and DDR4 memory cannot be mixed on the same system node.

To provide more flexible pricing, memory activations are ordered separately from the physical memory and can be permanent or temporary. Activation features can be used on DDR4 memory features and used on any size memory feature. Activations are not specific to a CDIMM, but are known as a total quantity to the server. The Power hypervisor determines what physical memory to use.

Memory activation features are:

  • 1 GB Memory Activation (#EMAT) (static)
  • 100 GB Memory Activations (#EMAU) (static)
  • 100 GB Mobile Memory Activations (#EMAV)
  • 100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activations (#EMAD) (technically static, but no charge to convert to mobile)
  • 512 GB Memory Activations for Power Linux (#ELMD)
  • 8 TB activations (#EMBA) ordered with 8 TB memory using feature EM8Y CDIMMs
  • 4 TB activations (#EMB7) ordered with 4 TB memory using the feature EMB6 package

A minimum of 50% of the total physical memory capacity of a server must have permanent memory activations ordered for that server. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB of physical memory must have at least 4 TB of permanent memory activations ordered for that server. These activations can be static, mobile-enabled, mobile, or Linux on Power. At least 25% must be static activations or Linux on Power activations. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB physical memory must have at least 2 TB of static activations or Linux on Power activations. The 50% minimum cannot be fulfilled using mobile activations ordered on a different server.

The minimum activations ordered with MES orders of additional physical memory features will depend on the existing total installed physical memory capacity and the existing total installed memory activation features. If you already have installed more than 50% activations for your existing system, then you can order less than 50% activations for the MES ordered memory. The resulting configuration after the MES order of physical memory and any MES activations must meet the same 50% and 25% minimum rules above.

For the best possible performance, it is generally recommended that memory be installed evenly across all system node drawers and all SCMs in the system. Balancing memory across the installed system planar cards enables memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in better performance for your configuration.

Though maximum memory bandwidth is achieved by filling all the memory slots, plans for future memory additions should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

IBM Active Memory Expansion (AME) is an option that can increase the effective memory capacity of the system. See the AME information later in this section.

System node PCIe slots

  • Each system node enclosure provides excellent configuration flexibility and expandability with eight half-length, low-profile (half-high) x16 PCIe Gen4 slots. The slots are labeled C1 through C8.
  • These PCIe slots can be used for either low-profile PCIe adapters or for attaching a PCIe I/O drawer.
  • A blind swap cassette (BSC) is used to house the low-profile adapters that go into these slots. The server is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature number to order additional low-profile BSCs is not required or announced.
  • If additional PCIe slots beyond the system node slots are required, a system node x16 slot is used to attach a six-slot expansion module in the I/O drawer. An I/O drawer holds two expansion modules that are attached to any two x16 PCIe slots in the same system node or in different system nodes.
  • PCIe Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, and Gen4 adapter cards are supported in these Gen4 slots. The set of PCIe adapters that are supported is found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number.
  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • The system nodes sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots; and if an adapter requires higher levels of cooling, they automatically speed up the fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters.
  • Each PCIe slot in the system node supports CAPI adapters.

PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer

The 19-inch PCIe 4U I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) provides slots to hold PCIe adapters that cannot be placed into a system node. The PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) and two PCIe FanOut Modules (#EMXG) provide 12 PCIe I/O full-length, full-height slots. One FanOut Module provides six PCIe slots labeled C1 through C6. The C1 and C4 are x16 slots, and C2, C3, C5, and C6 are x8 slots.

PCIe Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, and Gen4 and full-high adapter cards are supported. The set of full-high PCIe adapters that are supported is found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number. See the PCI Adapter Placement manual for the 9080-M9S for details and rules associated with specific adapters supported and their supported placement in x8 or x16 slots.

Up to four PCIe I/O drawers per node can be attached to the Power E980 server. Using two 6-slot fan-out modules per drawer provides a maximum of 48 PCIe slots per system node. With 2 system nodes, up to 96 PCIe slots (8 I/O drawers) are supported. With a 4-node Power E980 server, up to 192 PCIe slots (16 I/O drawers) are supported.

Additional PCIe I/O drawer configuration flexibility is provided to the Power E980 servers. Zero, one, two, three, or four PCIe I/O drawers can be attached per system node. As an alternative, a "half" drawer that consists of just one PCIe fan-out module in the I/O drawer is also supported, enabling a lower-cost configuration if fewer PCIe slots are required. Thus, a system node supports the following half drawer options: one half drawer, two half drawers, three half drawers, or four half drawers. Because there is a maximum of four feature EMX0 drawers per node, a single system node cannot have more than four half drawers. A server with more system nodes can support more half drawers up to four per node. A system can also mix half drawers and full PCIe I/O drawers. The maximum of four PCIe drawers per system node applies whether a full or half PCIe drawer.

PCIe drawers can be concurrently added to the server at a later time. The drawer being added can have either one or two fan-out modules. Note that adding a second fan-out module to a half-full drawer does require schedule downtime.

PCIe I/O Drawer attachment and cabling

  • A PCIe X16 to Optical CXP converter adapter (#EJ07) and 2.0 M (#ECC6), 10.0 M (#ECC8), or 20 M (#ECC9) CXP 16X Active Optical cables (AOC) connect the system node to a PCIe FanOut module in the I/O expansion drawer. One ECC6, ECC8, or ECC9 feature ships two AOC cables from IBM.
  • The two AOC cables connect to two CXP ports on the fan-out module and to two CXP ports on the feature EJ07 adapter. The top port of the fan-out module must be cabled to the top port of the feature EJ07 port. Likewise, the bottom two ports must be cabled together.
  • It is recommended but not required that one I/O drawer be attached to two different system nodes in the same server (one drawer module attached to one system node and the other drawer module attached to a different system node). This can help provide cabling for higher availability configurations.
  • It is generally recommended that any attached PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer be located in the same rack as the POWER9 server for ease of service, but expansion drawers can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it. If you are attaching a large number of cables, such as SAS cables or CAT5/CAT6 Ethernet cables, to a PCIe I/O drawer, then it is generally better to place that feature EMX0 drawer in a separate rack for better cable management.

    Limitation: When this cable is ordered with a system in a rack specifying IBM Plant integration, IBM Manufacturing will ship SAS cables longer than 3 meters in a separate box and not attempt to place the cable in the rack. This is because the longer SAS cable is probably used to attach to an EXP24S drawer in a different rack.

  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • A blind swap cassette is used to house the full-high adapters that go into these slots. The BSC is the same BSC as used with 12X attached I/O drawers (#5802, #5803, #5877, #5873) of the previous generation server. The drawer is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature to order additional full-high BSCs is not required or announced.
  • A maximum of 16 EXP24s Drawers is needed per PCIe Drawer (#EMX0) to enable SAS cables to be properly handled by the feature EMX0 cable management bracket.

A BSC is used to house the full-high adapters that go into the fan-out module slots. The BSC is the same BSC as used with the 12X attached I/O drawers (#5802, #5803, #5877, #5873) of the previous generation server and is often referred to as a cassette. The drawer is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature number to order additional full-high BSC is not required or announced.

EXP24SX disk/SSD drawer

  • Direct attached storage is supported with the EXP24SX SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#ESLS), an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays.
  • The Power E980 server supports up to 4,032 drives with a maximum of 168 EXP24SX drawers. The maximum of 16 EXP24SX drawers per PCIe I/O drawer due to cabling considerations remains unchanged.
  • The EXP24SX SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#ESLS) is an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays. Slot filler panels are included for empty bays when initially shipped. The EXP24SX supports up to 24 hot-swap SFF-2 SAS HDDs or SSDs. It uses only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP24SX includes redundant AC power supplies and uses two power cords.
  • With AIX, Linux, and VIOS, you can order the EXP24SX with four sets of six bays, two sets of 12 bays, or one set of 24 bays (mode 4, 2, or 1). With IBM i, you can order the EXP24SX as one set of 24 bays (mode 1). Mode setting is done by IBM Manufacturing, and there is no option provided to change the mode after it is shipped from IBM.
  • 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.
  • The EXP24SX SAS ports are attached to a SAS PCIe adapter or pair of adapters using SAS YO or X cables.
  • To maximize configuration flexibility and space utilization, the system node does not have integrated SAS bays or integrated SAS controllers. PCIe adapters and the EXP24SX can be used to provide direct access storage.
  • To further reduce possible single points of failure, EXP24SX configuration rules consistent with previous Power Systems servers are used. IBM i configurations require the drives to be protected (RAID or mirroring). Protecting the drives is highly recommended, but not required for other operating systems. All Power operating system environments that are using SAS adapters with write cache require the cache to be protected by using pairs of adapters.
  • It is recommended for SAS cabling ease that the EXP24SX drawer be located in the same rack in which the PCIe adapter is located. Note, however, it is often a good availability practice to split a SAS adapter pair across two PCIe drawers/nodes for availability and that may make the SAS cabling ease recommendation difficult or impossible to implement.
  • HDDs and SSDs that were previously located in POWER8 system units or in feature 5802 or 5803 12X-attached I/O drawers (SFF-1 bays) can be "re-trayed" and placed in EXP24S drawers. See feature conversions previously announced on the POWER8 servers. Ordering a conversion ships an SFF-2 tray or carriage onto which the client can place their existing drive after removing it from the existing SFF-1 tray/carriage. The order also changes the feature number so that IBM configuration tools can better interpret what is required.
  • A maximum of 16 EXP24SX Drawers is needed per PCIe Drawer (#EMX0) to enable SAS cables to be properly handled by the feature EMX0 cable management bracket.

DVD and boot devices

A device capable of reading a DVD may 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. In addition, the system must be attached to a network with software such as AIX NIM server or Linux Install Manager configured to perform these functions:

  1. Disk or SSD located in an EXP24S drawer attached to a PCIe adapter
  2. A network through LAN adapters
  3. A SAN attached to Fibre Channel or Fibre Channel over Ethernet adapters and indicated to the server by the 0837 specify feature
  • Assuming option 1 above, the minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive in the system for AIX and Linux and two for IBM i. If you are using option 3 above, a disk or SSD drive is not required.
  • For IBM i, a DVD drive must be available on the server when required.
  • A DVD can optionally attach to the front of the system control unit, rear of nodes 1 or 2, or one or more DVDs can be located in an external enclosure such as a 7226-1U3 Multimedia drawer.

Racks

The Power E980 server is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system in the IBM Enterprise rack (7965-S42, 7014-T42, 7014-T00, #0551, #0553 or #ECR0). Clients can choose to place the server in other racks if they are confident those racks have the strength, rigidity, depth, and hole pattern characteristics that are needed. Clients should work with IBM Service to determine the appropriateness of other racks.

It is highly recommended that the Power E980 server be ordered with an IBM 42U enterprise rack (7965-S42, 7014-T42, #0553, or #ECR0). An initial system order is placed in a 7965-S42 or 7014-T42 rack. A same serial-number model upgrade MES is placed in a feature 0553 or #ECR0 rack. This is done to ease and speed client installation, provide a more complete and higher quality environment for IBM Manufacturing system assembly and testing, and provide a more complete shipping package.

The 7965-S42, 7014-T42 or feature 0553 or #ECR0 is a 2-meter enterprise rack that provides 42U or 42 EIA of space. Clients who don't want this rack can remove it from the order, and IBM Manufacturing will then remove the server from the rack after testing and ship the server in separate packages without a rack. Use the factory-deracking feature ER21 on the order to do this.

Front door options supported with Power E980 system nodes for the 42U slim enterprise rack (7695-S42 and ECR0), front acoustic door #ECRA, high-end appearance front door #ECRF, cost-effective plain front door #ECRM.

Five rack front door options are supported with Power E980 system nodes for the 42U enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553), the thinner acoustic front door (#EC08), the ruggedized door (#ERGD), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7), and the cost-effective plain front door (#6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6272). The Power 880 logo rack door (#6250) is not supported.

Recommendation: The 7965-S42 has optimized cable routing, therefore all 42U may be populated with equipment. If you choose to use the 7014 T42, the bottom 2U of the rack should be left open for cable management when below-floor cabling is used. Likewise, if overhead cabling is used, the top 2U should be left open for cable management. If clients are using both overhead and below-floor cabling, leaving 2U open on both the top and bottom of the rack is a good practice. Rack configurations that place equipment in these 2U locations can be more difficult to service if there are a lot of cables running by them in the rack.

The 7965-S42 rack does not need 2U on either the top or bottom for cable egress.

The system control unit is located below system node 1, with system node 1 on top of it, system node 2 on top of that, and so on.

With the 2-meter 7965-S42 or feature ECR0, a rear rack extension of 12.7 cm (5 (in.))(#ECRK) provides space to hold cables on the side of the rack and keep the center area clear for cooling and service access.

With the 2-meter 7014-T42 or feature 0553, a rear rack extension of 20.3 cm (8 (in.))(#ERG0) provides space to hold cables on the side of the rack and keep the center area clear for cooling and service access.

Recommendation: Include the above extensions when approximately more than 16 I/O cables per side are present or may be added in the future, when using the short-length thinner SAS cables or thinner I/O cables such as Ethernet. If you use longer-length thicker SAS cables fewer cables will fit within the rack.

SAS cables are most commonly found with multiple EXP24SX/EXP12SX SAS drawers (#ESLL or ESLS) driven by multiple PCIe SAS adapters. For this reason, it is good practice to keep multiple EXP24SX/EXP12SX drawers in the same rack as the PCIe I/O drawer or in a separate rack close to the PCIe I/O drawer, using shorter, thinner SAS cables. The feature ERG0 and ECRK extension can be good to use even with smaller numbers of cables because it enhances the ease of cable management with the extra space it provides.

Multiple service personnel are required to manually remove or insert a system node drawer into a rack, given its dimensions and weight and content.

Recommendation: To avoid any delay in service, obtain an optional lift tool (#EB2Z). One feature EB2Z lift tool can be shared among many servers and I/O drawers. The EB2Z lift tool provides a hand crank to lift and position up to 159 kg (350 lb). The EB2Z lift tool is 1.12 meters x 0.62 meters (44 in. x 24.5 in.). Note that a single system node can weigh up to 86.2 kg (190 lb).

Lighter, lower cost lift tool is FC EB3Z (lift tool) and EB4Z (angled shelf kit for lift tool). The EB3Z lift tool provides a hand crank to lift and position a server up to 400 lb. Note that a single system node can weigh up to 86.2 kg (190 lb).

PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer and Racks

IBM Manufacturing can factory-integrate the PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) with new server orders. Because expansion drawers complicate the access to vertical PDUs if located at the same height, IBM recommends accommodating PDUs horizontally on racks that have one or more PCIe I/O Expansion Drawers. Following this recommendation, IBM Manufacturing will always assemble the integrated rack configuration with horizontally mounted PDUs unless CRSP (#0469) is on the order. When specifying CSRP, clients must provide the locations where the PCIe I/O Expansion Drawers must be placed, avoiding locating those adjacent to vertical PDU locations EIA 6 through 16 and 21 through 31.

Additional PCIe I/O drawers (#EMX0) for an already installed server can be MES ordered with or without a rack. When clients want IBM Manufacturing to place these MES I/O drawers into a rack and ship them together (factory integration), then the racks should be ordered as features on the same order as the I/O drawers. Use feature 0553 (42U enterprise rack) for this order. Regardless of the rack-integrated system to which the PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer is attached to, if the expansion drawer is ordered as factory-integrated, the PDUs in the rack will be defaulted to be placed horizontally to enhance cable management. Vertical PDUs can be used only if CSRP (#0469) is on the order.

After the rack with expansion drawers is delivered to the client, the client may rearrange the PDUs from horizontal to vertical. However, the IBM configurator tools will continue to assume the PDUs are placed horizontally for the matter of calculating the free space still available in the rack for additional future orders.

Power distribution units (PDU)

  • The Power E980 server factory that is integrated into an IBM rack uses horizontal PDUs located in the EIA drawer space of the rack instead of the typical vertical PDUs found in the side pockets of a rack. This is done to aid cable routing. Each horizontal PDU occupies 1U. Vertically mounting the PDUs to save rack space can cause cable routing challenges and interfere with optimal service access.
  • When mounting the horizontal PDUs, it is a good practice to place them almost at the top or almost at the bottom of the rack, leaving 2U or more of space at the very top or very bottom open for cable management. Mounting a horizontal PDU in the middle of the rack is generally not optimal for cable management.
  • Two possible PDU ratings are supported: 60A/63A (orderable in most countries) and 30A/32A.
    • The 60A/63A PDU supports four system node power supplies and one I/O expansion drawer or eight I/O expansion drawers.
    • The 30A/32A PDU supports two system node power supplies and one I/O expansion drawer or four I/O expansion drawer
  • Rack-integrated system orders require at least two of either feature 7109, 7188, or 7196.
    • Intelligent PDU with Universal UTG0247 Connector (#7109) is for an intelligent AC power distribution unit (PDU+) that enables users to monitor the amount of power being used by the devices that are plugged in to this PDU+. This AC power distribution unit provides 12 C13 power outlets. It receives power through a UTG0247 connector. It can be used for many different countries and applications by varying the PDU to Wall Power Cord, which must be ordered separately. Each PDU requires one PDU to Wall Power Cord. Supported power cords include the following features: 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, and 6658.
    • Power Distribution Unit (#7188) mounts in a 19-inch rack and provides twelve C13 power outlets. The PDU has six 16A circuit breakers, with two power outlets per circuit breaker. System units and expansion units must use a power cord with a C14 plug to connect to the feature 7188. One of the following line cords must be used to distribute power from a wall outlet to the feature 7188: feature 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658.
    • The Three-phase Power Distribution Unit (#7196) provides six C19 power outlets and is rated up to 48A. It has a 4.3 m (14 ft) fixed power cord to attach to the power source (IEC309 60A plug (3P+G)). A separate "to-the-wall" power cord is not required or orderable. Use the Power Cord 2.8 m (9.2 ft), Drawer to Wall/IBM PDU, (250V/10A) (#6665) to connect devices to this PDU. These power cords are different than the ones used on the feature 7188 and 7109 PDUs. Supported countries for the feature 7196 PDU are Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands Antilles, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Surinam, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, United States, and Venezuela.

System node power

  • Four AC power supplies provide 2 + 2 redundant power for enhanced system availability. A system node is designed to continue functioning with just two working power supplies. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.
  • Four AC power cords are used for each system node (one per power supply) and are ordered using the AC Power Chunnel feature (#EMXA). The chunnel carries power from the rear of the system node to the hot-swap power supplies located in the front of the system node where they are more accessible for service.

System control unit power

  • The system control unit is powered from the system nodes. UPIC cables provide redundant power to the system control unit. In a single node system two UPIC cables are attached to system node 1. In a 2-node, 3-node, or 4-node system, one UPIC cable attaches to system node 1 and one UPIC cable attaches to system node 2. They are ordered with features EFCA. Only one UPIC cable is enough to power the system control unit, and the other is in place for redundancy.

Concurrent maintenance or Hot-plug options

The following options are maintenance or hot-plug capable:

  • EXP24S SAS Storage enclosure drawer.
  • Drives in the EXP24S Storage enclosure drawer.
  • NVMe U.2 drives.
  • PCI extender cards, Optical PCIe Link IO Expansion Card.
  • PCIe I/O adapters.
  • PCIe I/O drawers.
  • PCIe to USB Conversion card.
  • SMP cables (only after November GA and with Firmware 920.20).
  • System node AC power supplies: Two functional power supplies must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.
  • System node fans.
  • System control unit fans.
  • System control unit Op Panel.
  • Time of Day battery.
  • UPIC Interface card in SCU.
  • UPIC power cables from system node to system control unit.

If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be hot-plugged if a nonredundant topology has been implemented.

You can access hot-plug procedures in the product documentation at IBM Knowledge Center.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative technology supporting the AIX operating system that helps enable the effective maximum memory capacity to be larger than the true physical memory maximum. Compression/decompression of memory content can enable memory expansion up to 100% or more. This can enable a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can enable a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to compress/decompress the memory contents. The trade-off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies on how compressible the memory content is. It also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression/decompression.

The Power E980 server includes a hardware accelerator designed to boost Active Memory Expansion efficiency and uses less POWER® core resource. You have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off Active Memory Expansion. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the Active Memory Expansion function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning memory expansion. When turned on, monitoring capabilities are available in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX, enabling you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any Power Systems model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of Active Memory Expansion is available to enable more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. You can request the trial using the Capacity on Demand web page.

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by chargeable hardware feature EM89, which can be ordered with the initial order of the system or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the system node. An IPL is not required to enable the system node. The key is specific to an individual system and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running Active Memory Expansion. Normal licensing requirements apply.

Active Memory Mirroring

The Power E980 server offers the Active Memory Mirroring for Hypervisor feature, which is designed to prevent a system outage in the event of an uncorrectable error in memory being used by the system hypervisor.

IBM i operating system

For clients loading the IBM i operating system, the four-digit numeric QPRCFEAT value is generally the same as the four-digit numeric feature number for the processors used in the system. The Power E980 3.9 GHz processor feature and the special ordering processor features used for the CBU for Power Enterprise Systems are exceptions to this rule. For the Power E980:

Feature number Description
EFP1/EFB1 Processor (typical 3.9 - 4.0 GHz 32-core node) - QPRCFEAT value for the system is EFP1.
EFP2/EFB2 Processor (typical 3.7 - 3.9 GHz 40-core node) - QPRCFEAT value for the system is EFP2.
EFP4/EFB4 Processor (typical 3.58 - 3.9 GHz 44-core node) - QPRCFEAT value for the system is EFP4.
EFP3/EFB3 Processor (typical 3.55 - 3.9 GHz 48-core node) - QPRCFEAT value for the system is EFP3.
EHC6 Processor (typical 3.7 - 3.9 GHZ 40-core node) - QPRCFEAT value for the system is EFP2.

If the 5250 Enterprise Enablement function is to be used on the server, order one or more feature EF2R or order the full system 5250 enablement feature EF30. Feature EF2R provides one processor core's worth of 5250 capacity, which can be spread across multiple physical processor cores or multiple partitions.

Capacity Backup for IBM i

The Capacity Backup (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 as part of this CBU offering, but programs such as Power Enterprise Pools are available for the function.

The CBU specify feature number 4891 is available only as part of a new server purchase or during an MES upgrade from an existing system to a 9080-M9S. 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. A used system that has an existing CBU feature cannot be registered. The only way to attain a CBU feature that can be registered is with a plant order.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not enable either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 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 processor cores are inactive. The CBU system can then better support fail-over 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 an E980 server can be any of the following:

  • 9080-MHE
  • 9080-MME
  • 9119-MHE
  • 9119-MME

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P30 software tier, or higher. 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 may 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. Such messages that arise 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 may 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. Note that if you are using software replication (versus PowerHA), you may well need more than a minimum of one entitlement on the CBU to support the replication workload.

For example, if you have a 64-core Power E880 as your primary system with twenty IBM i processor license entitlements (nineteen above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to nineteen IBM i entitlements 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. For CBU registration and further information, see the Capacity Backup website.

Capacity Backup for IBM Power Enterprise Systems

With Capacity Backup for Power Enterprise Systems, clients can purchase a new Power Enterprise server that is specifically to be used for high-availability or disaster-recovery purposes. It includes a number of system nodes based on a defined Power E980, Power E870, Power E870C, Power E880, or Power E880C production system that the client owns. Systems with Capacity Backup processor features can only be ordered with a maximum of eight static processor activations. All other processor activations supported on these systems are through Elastic COD processor days or Mobile Processor activations from another system within the Enterprise Pool in which they exist.

The IBM Power System E980 Capacity Backup system can only be purchased by clients who already own or purchase a qualifying Power E980 (9080-M9S), Power E880C (9080-MHE), Power E870C (9080-MME), Power E880 (9119-MHE), or Power E870 (9119-MME) production Power System server that meets the following configuration requirement:

  • You must activate a minimum of 25% of the installed memory on your CBU Power E980 system.

When the requirements are completed, you are entitled to order a CBU for Power E980 system. The following configuration rules apply:

  • You must purchase exactly eight Static Processor activations on the Power E980 CBU system.
  • Activation of more than eight cores on the Power E980 CBU system is not supported.
  • You must order feature EFB0 (CBU server specify) on every Power E980 CBU system to add CBU processor feature EFB1, EFB2, EFB3, or EFB4 to a configuration.
  • The Power E980 CBU system may only order the total number of EFB1, EFB2, EFB3, or EFB4 processor features that are equivalent to the total number of processor features on the primary E8xxx or E980 production system the CBU is registered to support. For example, if Power E980 production system has two of feature EFP1, you are entitled to order two of feature EPB1.

For every Mobile Processor Activation feature on the Power E980 production system that a E980 CBU is registered to support, you may receive 11,680 Elastic CoD GB days to be used for high availability and disaster recovery purposes only. The Elastic CoD memory days must be turned on immediately with the installation of the Power E980 CBU system and must be left on until all the days are used. The Elastic CoD memory days are renewable for no charge a year after the Power E980 CBU has been installed with proof that the Power E980 requirements are meet. The Elastic CoD days continue to be renewable as long as the original client that purchased the Power E980 production system remains in production services.

The capacity backup for the Power E980 system must go through a registration process, which includes a contract signed by the client. For CBU registration and further information, see the Capacity Backup website.

All Power E980 CBU systems, no matter whether they use the 32-core POWER9 processor, 40-core POWER9 processor, 44-core POWER9 processor or the 48-core POWER9 processor, will have feature EFB0 installed on the system. This feature designates that this is a Capacity Backup system. A stop-ship will automatically be put in place until manufacturing is notified that the CBU system meets configuration requirements based on the identified Power E980 production 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

Reliability

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 ensure product quality.

Power E980 system RAS

The Power E980 server comes with dual line cord redundancy along with n+1 power supply redundancy and n+1 fan rotor redundancy. Power supplies and fans are concurrently maintainable.

The system service processor is redundant with a dynamic failover capability. Each system node has dual processor clock logic with a dynamic failover capability.

Concurrent maintenance of the real-time clock battery and the operator panel is also provided.

The voltage regulators supplying the DIMM risers and certain other miscellaneous functions are pluggable and supply both a redundant and spare output.

Memory subsystem RAS

The memory has error detection and correction circuity that can mark a memory module as faulty to allow for substitution of a spare memory module. Both x4 and x8 CDIMMS provide spare memory modules.

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 IBM PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions

The IBM 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 and provide core-contained checkstops for certain solid faults.

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 modified cache data 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. When and if data is used, I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device, otherwise, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or if the data is not owned by the hypervisor.

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 SSR Setup, Install, and Service
  • Error Detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI)
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC)
  • Guiding Light 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 HMC
  • Automatic reporting of serviceable events to IBM through the Electronic Service Agent™ Call Home application

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 enables 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.

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 guiding light LED implementation, the system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs . The servicer can 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

The processor and memory FFDC technology is designed to perform without the need for re-create diagnostics nor 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:

  • EXP24S SAS Storage enclosure drawer.
  • Drives in the EXP24S Storage enclosure drawer.
  • NVMe U.2 drives.
  • PCI extender cards, Optical PCIe Link IO Expansion Card.
  • PCIe I/O adapters.
  • PCIe I/O drawers.
  • PCIe to USB Conversion card.
  • SMP cables (only after November GA and with Firmware 920.20).
  • System node AC power supplies: Two functional power supplies must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.
  • System node fans.
  • System control unit fans.
  • System control unit Op Panel.
  • Time of Day battery.
  • UPIC Interface card in SCU.
  • UPIC power cables from system node to system control unit.

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 IBM i 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. Client 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 PowerVM Live Partition Mobility (LPM), users can migrate an AIX, IBM i, or Linux VM running on one POWER 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 outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults. The IBM Power System E980 and other servers using POWER9-technology processors with firmware level FW920 or above supports secure LPM, whereby the VM image is encrypted and compressed prior to transfer. Secure LPM uses on-chip encryption and compression capabilities of the POWER9 processor for optimal performance.

Service processor

Diagnostic monitoring of recoverable error from the processor chipset is performed on the system processor itself, while the fatal diagnostic monitoring of the processor chipset is performed by the service processor. It runs on its own 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 if the system i OS is running, it can also be configured to report OS detected errors. Call Home on the HMC will continue to report platform errors. 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.

For more information on how to utilize the power of IBM Electronic Services, see the following website or contact an IBM Systems Services Representative.

IBM Proactive Support for Power Systems

Clients have found significant value in IBM's Proactive Support offerings on mission-critical systems, as this provides personalized support, proactive recommendations, and accelerated response times versus standard support. As a result, IBM is including the IBM Proactive Support in the default configuration for all Mid-Range and Enterprise IBM POWER9 Systems - for IBM AIX, IBM i, Linux, and SAP HANA workloads. Other configurations are also available.

    The Power E980 server must be installed in a rack with a rear door and side panels for EMC compliance. The native HMC Ethernet ports must use shielded Ethernet cables.

    Note: Government regulations, such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives, may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. This IBM system is available with an optional acoustical door feature that can help reduce the noise emitted from this system. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room where you designate the racks to be installed; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.
