Flex System Enterprise Chassis

The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis (machine type 8721) is a 10U next-generation server platform with integrated chassis management. It is a compact, high-density, high-performance, rack-mount, scalable server platform system. It supports up to 14 one-bay compute nodes that can share common resources, such as power, cooling, management, and I/O resources within a single Flex System Enterprise Chassis. In addition, it can also support up to seven 2-bay compute nodes or three 4-bay compute nodes when the shelves are removed from the chassis. You can mix and match 1-bay, 2-bay, and 4-bay compute nodes to meet your specific hardware needs.

The Flex System Enterprise Chassis can support the following components:

Configuring the Flex System Enterprise Chassis

You can configure the Flex System Enterprise Chassis locally or remotely using the Flex System Manager. Configuring the chassis involves performing all of the tasks that are necessary to set up a functioning chassis on which you can begin to install applications.

The chassis system provides the following features:

Systems management

The IBM Flex System Manager Node provides configuration and management support for multiple (up to four) chassis, their devices, and the compute nodes locally or remotely. You can install up to two FSMs in each four-chassis configuration (one FSM in two of the four chassis) for redundancy. This enables the system to continue to operate without disruption if one fails. The Flex System Manager provides all of the management functions that the CMM provides, plus other advanced management functions.

The IBM Flex System Chassis Management Module (CMM) provides single-chassis management. The CMM is used to communicate with the service processor in each compute node to provide system monitoring, event recording, and alerts, and to manage the chassis, its devices, and the compute nodes. The chassis supports up to two Chassis Management Modules. If one CMM fails, the second CMM can detect its inactivity and activate itself and take control of the system without any disruption.

Flex System networking portfolio

Networking in datacenters today is undergoing a transition from a discrete traditional model to a more flexible, optimized model or the "smarter" model. Clients are looking to support more workloads with decreasing or flat IT budget. The network architecture on the Flex System platform has been designed to address the key challenges clients are facing today in their datacenters. The key attributes of the network architecture on this platform are:

One of the key attributes of the products on this platform is scalability. When modules are marked "Scalable" this means that clients can buy the base product with certain number of ports and when they need to scale up for more ports, they can just buy the license to enable the extra ports without having to provision any new hardware.

The Flex System networking portfolio includes:

InfiniBand is a high-speed server-interconnect technology that is ideally suited as the interconnect technology for access layer and storage components specifically for application and back-end IPC applications, for connectivity between application and back-end layers, and from back-end to storage layers. Through use of host channel adapters (HCAs) and switches, InfiniBand technology is used to connect servers with remote storage and networking devices, and other servers. It can also be used inside servers for inter-processor communication (IPC) in parallel clusters.

IBM Flex System IB6131 InfiniBand Switch is an upgradeable device that can scale with your needs. Base switch enables 14 internal QDR links to each server and 18 QSFP uplink ports for inter-switch links or to connect to external servers. Clients can upgrade to FDR speed (56 Gb) via the Feature On Demand (FOD) process.

The InfiniBand QDR and FDR switches based on Mellanox technology are unmanaged switches. A subnet manager is required to establish an InfiniBand fabric. This module supports switch-embedded subnet managers and host-based subnet managers.

Warranty Information
P.O. Box 12195
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
Attn: Dept JDJA/B203

Warranty period


Note: For configurations that support the RAID battery, the RAID battery will be warranted for 1 year effective on its "Date of Installation". All other product warranty terms for the machine remain unchanged.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature which 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 effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature is the same as the machine it is installed.

The following have been designated as consumables, supply items, or structural parts and therefore not covered by this warranty:

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. 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. 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- and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive) Service and On-site Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. A CRU is designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU. Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service designated for your Machine.

Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next business day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM . When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following parts or features have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

On-site Service

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or IBM or your reseller will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. If required, On-site Repair is provided, 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well lit, and suitable for the purpose. On-site Service is not available in all countries, and some countries have kilometer or mileage limitations from an IBM service center. In those locations where On-site Service is not available, the normal in-country service delivery is used.

Call IBM at 1-800-IBM-SERV (426-7378) to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period.

Calls must be received by 5:00 p.m. local time in order to qualify for NBD service.

International Warranty Service

International Warranty Service (IWS) is available in selected countries or regions.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased.

Under IWS, warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the IWS-eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.

To determine the eligibility of your machine and to view a list of countries where service is available, visit

http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=GCOR-3FBJK2

For more information on IWS, refer to Services Announcement 601-034, dated September 25, 2001.

Licensing

Programs included with this product are licensed under the terms and conditions of the License Agreements that are shipped with the system.

Maintenance services

ServicePac® , ServiceSuite® , ServiceElect, and ServiceElite

ServicePac , ServiceSuite , ServiceElect, and ServiceElite provide hardware warranty service upgrades, maintenance, and selected support services in one agreement.

Warranty service upgrade

During the warranty period, a warranty service upgrade provides an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. A warranty service upgrade must be purchased during the warranty period and is for a fixed term (duration). It is not refundable or transferable and may not be prorated. If required, IBM will provide the warranty service upgrade enhanced level of On-site Service acquired by the customer. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. 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.

CRUs will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU Service except that you may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under one of the On-site Service levels specified below.

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Maintenance service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of maintenance service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. 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. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed.

CRU Service

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), IBM will ship the CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request.

IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM . When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Maintenance service (ICA)

Maintenance services are available for ICA legacy contracts.

Alternative service (warranty service upgrades)

During the warranty period, a warranty service upgrade provides an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. A warranty service upgrade must be purchased during the warranty period and is for a fixed term (duration). It is not refundable or transferable and may not be prorated. If required, IBM will provide the warranty service upgrade enhanced level of On-site Service acquired by the customer. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed.

Non-IBM parts support

Warranty service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to its customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades and maintenance services

Under certain conditions, IBM Integrated Technology Services repairs selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

IBM Service provides hardware problem determination on non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, or memory) installed within IBM machines covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.
