Overview
Bottom rule

The IBM PowerLinux 7R4 (8248-L4T) supports up to four POWER7+ processor dual chip modules (DCMs). Each of the four processor DCMs is an 8-core DCM packaged with 2 x 4-core chips. All 8-core processor DCMs are either 3.5 GHz or 4.0 GHz mounted on a dedicated card with a granularity of one DCM in a 19-inch rack-mount, 5U (EIA units) drawer configuration. Each POWER7+ processor DCM is a 64-bit, 8-core processor packaged on a dedicated card with a maximum of 64 DDR3 DIMMs, 10 MB of L3 cache per core, and 256 KB of L2 cache per core. A PowerLinux 7R4 can be populated with two or four DCMs, providing 16 or 32 cores. All the cores are active.

The PowerLinux 7R4 server supports a maximum of 64 DDR3 DIMM slots, 16 per 8-core processor DCM. Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 8, 16, and 32 GB and run at speeds of 1066 MHz. A system with four DCMs installed has a maximum memory of 1024 GB.

The PowerLinux 7R4 server delivers great I/O expandability. In addition to the six PCIe Gen2 slots in the system unit, up to four 12X-attached I/O drawers (#EL36 or #EL37) add up to 40 PCIe Gen1 slots. This set of PCI slots can provide extensive connectivity to LANs, switches, SANs, asynchronous devices, SAS storage, tape storage, and more. For example, more than 64 TB of SAS disk storage is supported.

The new 4-pack SSD package (#ESRA) offers ordering convenience and price savings for a new server order. A 4-pack SSD feature ESRA for the 7R4 system unit or EL36 I/O Drawer can provide up to 90,000 I/O operations per second (IOPS) in just 1/7th of 1U drawer. The 4-pack SSD must be ordered with the server, not as a later MES order.

The PowerLinux 7R4 server system unit includes six SFF SAS bays. This offers up to 5.4 TB HDD capacity or up to 3.6 TB SSD capacity. All SAS disks and SSDs are 2.5-inch SFF and hot swappable. The six SAS SFF bays can be split into two sets of three bays for additional configuration flexibility, using just the integrated SAS adapters.

The following feature-numbered I/O drawers are available for order on the PowerLinux 7R4 server:

EXP30 Ultra SSD I/O Drawer (#EL30) is a 1U high I/O drawer that enables 30 hot-swap SSD bays and a pair of integrated large write cache, high-performance SAS controllers. Ultra-high levels of performance are offered without using any PCIe slots on the POWER7® server in an ultra-dense packaging design. The two high-performance, integrated SAS controllers each physically provides 3.1 GB write cache. Working as a pair, they offer mirrored write cache data and controller redundancy. The cache contents are designed to be protected by built-in flash memory in case of power failure. If the pairing is broken, write cache is not used after existing cache content is written out to the drive and performance will probably be slowed until the controller pairing is reestablished.

Each controller is connected to a GX++ PCIe adapter in a server (for example, #1914) over a PCIe x8 cable such as feature EN05, EN07, or EN08. Usually both controllers are attached to one server, but each controller can be assigned to a different server or partition or VIOS. Active/Active capability is supported assuming at least two RAID arrays. The controllers deliver RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 Operating System mirroring is also available. The adapters' CCIN is 57C3. eMLC SSDs designed to fit in the Ultra drawer bays, such as the 387 GB feature EL34 SSD, are used. A minimum of six SSDs are required in each Ultra drawer. Each controller can access all 30 SSD bays. The bays can be configured as one set of bays run by a pair of controllers working together. Or the bays can be divided into two logical sets where each of the two controllers "owns" one of the logical sets. With proper software, if one of the controllers fails, the other controller can run both sets of bays.

12X I/O drawer cables

19-inch racks

The 8248-L4T and its I/O drawers are designed to mount in the 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks. These are built to the 19-inch EIA standard. When ordering a new 8248 system, you can order the appropriate 7014 rack model with the system hardware on the same initial order. IBM also makes the racks available as features of the 8248-L4T when you order additional I/O drawer hardware for an existing system (MES order). The rack features 0551 and 0553 should be used if you want IBM to integrate the newly ordered I/O drawer in a 19-inch rack before shipping the MES order.

The 8248-L4T has the following rack requirements:

1.8 Meter Rack (#0551)

This 36 EIA unit rack, delivered as feature 0551, is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T00 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T00 must be ordered separately with the feature 0551. Order the feature 0551 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM Manufacturing.

2.0 Meter Rack (#0553)

This 42 EIA unit rack delivered as feature 0553 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T42 or 7014-B42 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T42 or 7014-B42 must be ordered separately with feature 0553. Order feature 0553 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM Manufacturing.

Integrated I/O

Disks, media, and boot devices

I/O slots and adapters

Power

Two ac power supplies are required for each CEC enclosure; the second power supply provides redundant power for enhanced system availability. A CEC enclosure will continue to function with one working power supply. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.

Power distribution units

For systems installed in IBM 7014 or feature 055x racks, the following power distribution unit (PDU) rules apply (not all PDUs are available in all models of the 7014 or #055x):

To enable full redundancy, each server drawer has two power supplies that must be connected to separate PDUs.

Hot-plug options

Logical partitioning

Available backplane configurations

The PowerLinux 7R4 server CEC drawer has an extremely flexible and powerful backplane for supporting disk or SSDs. The six SFF bays can be configured in three different ways to match your business needs. Two built-in SAS controllers can be optionally augmented with a 175 MB Cache RAID Battery Card. Two embedded SAS disk/SSD controllers are provided for redundancy or for additional flexibility. The optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card feature (#5662) enables dual 175 MB write cache and includes dual batteries for protection of that write cache.

The backplane can be configured as one set of six bays, two sets of three bays (3/3), or three sets of two bays (2/2/2). Configuration options will vary, depending upon the controller options and the operating system selected. The controllers for the six-bay or 3/3 configurations are always the two pairs of embedded controllers. If the 2/2/2 configuration is used, the two embedded controllers run the first two sets of bays (2/2) and a feature 5901 PCIe SAS adapter located in a PCIe slot in a CEC enclosure controls the third set (2). By having three controllers, you can have three boot drives supporting three partitions.

The following SSD/HDD configuration rules apply:

You can configure the two embedded controllers together as a pair for higher redundancy or you can configure them separately. If you configure them separately, they can be owned by different partitions or they could be treated independently within the same partition. If configured as a pair, they provide controller redundancy and can automatically switch over to the other controller if there are problems with one of the controllers. Also, if configured as a pair, both can be active at the same time (active/active) assuming there are two or more arrays configured, providing additional performance capability as well as redundancy. If configured as a pair, the pair controls all six SFF bays and all six drives. The 3/3 or 2/2/2 configurations are not used with the paired controllers. RAID 0 and RAID 10 are supported, and you can also mirror two sets of controller/drives using the operating system.

Adding the optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) causes the pair of embedded controllers in that processor enclosure to be configured as dual controllers accessing all six SAS bays. Without the feature 5662, each of the two controllers can access only two or three SAS bays. With the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card, you can get controller redundancy, additional RAID protection options, and additional I/O performance. RAID 5 (a minimum of three drives required) and RAID 6 (a minimum of four drives required) are available when configured as dual controllers with one set of six bays.

The system backplane also includes a third embedded controller for running the DVD-RAM drive in the CEC drawer. Because the controller is independent from the two SAS disk/SSD controllers, it allows the DVD to be switched between multiple partitions without affecting the assignment of disks or SSDs in

An EXP24S drawer can be connected to the SAS port on the rear of the PowerLinux 7R4 system unit assuming feature 5662 is installed. In this configuration the two integrated SAS controllers in the system unit run all 24 SAS bays of the EXP24S drawer plus the six SAS bays of the system unit. Feature 1819 (internal SAS cabling) and feature 5662 (write cache for the SAS controller) must both be installed to support this combined 30 bay configuration. Only HDD in these bays are supported with this option.

Top rule
Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS)
Bottom rule

The reliability of the IBM PowerLinux 7R4 (8248-L4T) server starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. POWER7+ uses lower-voltage technology, improving reliability with stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. 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 high product quality levels.

The processor and memory subsystem contain a number of features designed to avoid or correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent failures as well as handle solid faults in components, including selective redundancy to tolerate certain faults without requiring an outage or parts replacement.

The Linux operating system supports disk drive mirroring (RAID 1). The adapter provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 for Linux .

Memory error-correction extensions

POWER7+ memory has error detection and correction code circuitry designed to detect and correct faults that extend across multiple memory modules (DRAMs). This includes tolerating a complete DRAM chip failure (Chipkill recovery). POWER7+ memory used in the PowerLinux 7R4 server system also contains a spare memory (DRAM) per rank of memory, which can be substituted for a failed DRAM module (DRAM sparing). The spares can be used when a DRAM fault is detected and offers additional protection beyond that provided by the error detection and correction circuitry. In addition, the POWER7+ memory subsystem scrubs memory to detect and correct intermittent errors.

The bus transferring data between the processor and the memory uses CRC error detection with a failed operation retry mechanism and the ability to dynamically retune bus parameters when a fault occurs. In addition, if a data bit goes bad, the memory bus has the spare capacity to substitute a new data bit-line.

Fault monitoring functions

On POWER7+ processor-based servers, hardware failures and software-detected hardware failures are recorded in the system log. An error log analysis (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 check stop conditions and forwards them to the SFP application and notifies the system administrator.

After the information is logged, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request is initiated, and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is 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 engineering data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service. The call home feature enables IBM service representatives to preemptively bring the most-probable replacement parts when a service call is placed, reducing repair time.

Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it affects customer operation.

Mutual surveillance

The service processor monitors the operation of firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and performs a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor. If the reset/reload does not correct the problem with the service processor, the hypervisor notifies the operating system, and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service or initiating a failover operation to the alternate service processor if present.

Environmental monitoring functions

POWER7+ processor-based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions:

POWER7+ processor availability enhancements

As in POWER6® , the POWER7+ processor can do processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery for a number of core-related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. With this function, when an error is encountered in the core, the POWER7+ processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On IBM systems prior to POWER6 , this error would have caused a checkstop.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation because the instruction will continue to fail. In a number of cases, systems with POWER7+ processors can extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. The entire process is transparent to the partition owning the failing instruction. These systems are designed to avoid a full system outage.

POWER7+ single processor check stopping

As in POWER6 , POWER7+ includes single processor check stopping for certain faults that cannot be handled by the availability enhancements described in the preceding section. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

Dynamic Fabric Bus Repair

For fabric busses connecting CEC drawers, this feature allows a faulty line on the fabric bus to be replaced by a spare dynamically, without the need to take down the system.

POWER7+ cache availability

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER7+ processor are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, the caches maintain a cache line delete capability. A threshold of correctable errors detected on a cache line can result in the data in the cache line being purged and the cache line removed from further operation without requiring a reboot. An ECC uncorrectable error detected in the cache can also trigger a purge and delete of the cache line. This results in no loss of operation if the cache line contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory. Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent error and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures. In addition, the POWER7+ processors can also dynamically substitute a faulty bit-line in an L3 cache dedicated to a processor with a spare bit-line.

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 examines the affected bus, enables the device driver to reset it, and continues 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.

Predictive failure and dynamic component deallocation

Servers with POWER® processors have long been able to perform predictive failure analysis on certain critical components, such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit symptoms that would indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home about the failing part before the error is propagated system-wide. In many cases, the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. In the event that insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user-defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can restart automatically following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The IBM PowerLinux 7R4 (8248-L4T) server is designed with both IBM and customer serviceability in mind. Advancements such as Guiding Light LED architecture are used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible. With the PowerLinux 7R4 server, you can replace service parts (customer replaceable unit). To do this, the PowerLinux 7R4 server uses Guiding Light LEDs to indicate the parts that need to be replaced.

An HMC attached to the PowerLinux 7R4 server enables support personnel (with your authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consist of stand-alone diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-RAM drive, and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX® operating system on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX error log and the AIX configuration data.


Note: Because the 8248-L4T system has an optional DVD-RAM (#5771), alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-RAM is not ordered; an external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system microcode to the latest required level.

Concurrent maintenance guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component are documented and available for display on any web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. These procedures are available through the InfoCenter application.

Service environments

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). An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

Service Interface

Using the Service Interface, support personnel can communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, interface, or terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the Service Interface enables 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 and its operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

In the Guiding Light LED implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER7+ system, an amber system fault LED is illuminated on the operator panel. The Guiding Light system pinpoints the exact part by blinking the amber field-replaceable unit (FRU) identify LED associated with the part to be replaced when selected by the servicer as part of the repair procedure. This action will roll up to the enclosure locate and blue system locate LED on the operator panel to provide a path from the system level to the enclosure and down to the individual component to be serviced.

The enclosure and system identify LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU.

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 extended 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.

Error handling and reporting

In the unlikely 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 is stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, the error is reported to the operating system. Error log analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.

With the integrated service processor, the system can automatically send out an alert through a phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure. A hardware fault also turns on the amber System Fault LED located on the system unit to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be set to blink by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the blue locate LED on the enclosure and at the system level will turn on solid. The amber system fault LED will be on solid when an error condition occurs.

On POWER7+ processor-based servers, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, 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. Once the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request is initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is 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.

Service processor

The service processor can 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.

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 processor menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Hardware requirements

PowerLinux 7R4 server minimum system configuration

The PowerLinux 7R4 server ships with four 8-core processor DCMs. The system can contain up to 1024 GB of system memory (256 GB maximum per DCM processor), six PCIe 8x adapters, and both DASD and media devices. This flexibility is made available through the many optional features for the PowerLinux 7R4 server.

Each PowerLinux 7R4 server order must include a minimum of the following items:

RAID

There are multiple protection options for disk/SSD drives in the SAS SFF bays in PowerLinux 7R4 server system unit or drives in 12X attached I/O drawers or drives in disk-only I/O drawers. Although protecting drives is always recommended, users may choose to leave some or all drives unprotected at their own risk and IBM supports these configurations.

This disk/SSD drive protection can be provided by Linux software or by the disk/SSD hardware controllers. Mirroring of drives is provided by Linux software. In addition, Linux supports controllers providing RAID 0, 5, 6, or 10. To further augment disk/SSD protection, hot spare capability can be used for protected drives. Specific hot spare prerequisites apply.

An integrated SAS Disk/SSD controller is provided in the PowerLinux 7R4 server system unit. It is optionally augmented by a 175 MB write cache and RAID 5 and RAID 6 capability when feature 5679 is added to the configuration. Without feature 5679, the integrated controller supports system mirroring protection for Linux and also supports RAID 0 or 10 protection. Other disk/SSD controllers are provided as PCI adapters. PCI-X SCSI, PCI-X SAS, and PCIe SAS adapters are supported. PCI Controllers with and without write cache are supported. RAID 5 and RAID 6 on controllers with write cache are supported.

Linux can use disk drives formatted with 512 byte blocks when being mirrored by the operating system. These disk drives must be reformatted to 528 byte sectors when used in RAID arrays. Although a small percentage of the drive's capacity is lost, additional data protection such as ECC and bad block detection is gained in this reformatting. For example, a 300 GB disk drive when reformatted provides around 283 GB. IBM Power SSDs are formatted to 528 byte.

RAID 0 (minimum two drives) provides striping without parity for performance, but does not offer any fault tolerance. In data striping, data is broken down into several smaller, equally sized pieces. Each piece is then written to or read from multiple drives. This process increases I/O bandwidth by simultaneously accessing multiple data paths. Because RAID 0 does not offer any redundancy, a single drive failure can result in the loss of all data in a striped set. This means that all of the data on all the drives could be lost if even a single drive fails.


Note: RAID 0 drives can be mirrored by software to provide protection.

RAID 5 (minimum three drives) uses block-level data striping with distributed parity. RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more drives. Fault tolerance is maintained by ensuring that the parity information for any given block of data is placed on a drive separate from those used to store the data itself. RAID 5 requires N+1 drives to accommodate this parity data; thus the available storage capacity for each array is reduced by one drive to provide protection.

RAID 6 (minimum four drives) uses block-level data striping with dual distributed parity, the same as RAID 5 except RAID 6 uses a second level of independently calculated and distributed parity information for additional fault tolerance. This extra fault tolerance provides data security in the event two drives fail before a drive can be replaced. RAID 6 requires N+2 drives to accommodate the additional parity data.

RAID 10 is RAID 0 plus redundancy. In this type of implementation, an array with an even number of drives is created with mirrored pairs of drives within the array. A RAID 0 stripe set of data is created across the mirrored pairs for performance and for redundancy.

If a protected drive fails, the failing drive can be removed from its hot-plug bay and the drive replaced while the server and partition continue to run. The contents can then be re-created while the system continues to run. Note that until the drive is both replaced and its contents re-created, the protection provided using just mirroring or RAID 10 is absent for that drive's now unmirrored paired drive. Similarly, the entire RAID 5 array is unprotected until the failed drive is replaced and re-created. RAID 6 and hot spare were designed to provide additional protection.

Software requirements

If installing the Linux operating system (one of these):

Users should also update their systems with the latest Linux for Power service and productivity tools available from IBM's website

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/home.html

If installing VIOS (one of these):

Limitations

System

Hardware management console (HMC) machine code

If 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.

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

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/flrt/home

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

Boot requirements

Processor and Memory Backplane (#EPT1)

Redundant fans: Standard

Power supply: The base machine must contain two ac power supplies (#5532).

Power cords

Two power cords are required.

System memory

Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM , problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support website at

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

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Warranty period

One year. 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 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 effective on its date of installation. 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.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service. An IBM technician will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone. You must follow IBM's problem determination and resolution procedures. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. 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.

Customer replacement parts

Tier 1 CRUs are those parts which require minimal effort, skill, or experience in order to service. Tier 1 items are mandatory CRUs when base 9 x 5 next-business-day warranty or maintenance is specified in the terms and conditions contract and is in force. However, if the customer elects not to perform Tier 1 service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7 x 24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts, Tier 1 and Tier 2, may be replaced or serviced by a SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

Tier 2 CRUs require more effort than Tier 1 CRUs and also require a higher level of skill and/or experience when being serviced by the customer. As with Tier 1 parts, if the customer elects not to perform Tier service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7 x 24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts will be replaced or serviced by an SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 2 CRUs:

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.

Non-IBM parts 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 their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services Warranty service for additional details.

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.

Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) may be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty CRU Service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under one of the On-site Service levels specified above. For additional information on the CRU Service, see the warranty information.
