Customer self repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP service providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
MandatoryParts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service. OptionalParts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for customer self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be additional charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty, HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the Illustrated Parts Catalog. Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used. For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For the North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).

For more information, refer to the documentation that ships with the rack mounting option. Place the server on a sturdy, level surface.
Removing the access panel
Removal and replacement procedures 29
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the drives and the internal system components to cool before touching them. CAUTION: Do not operate the server for long periods with the access panel open or removed. Operating the server in this manner results in improper airflow and improper cooling that can lead to thermal damage. IMPORTANT: When removing the access panel to view the Systems Insight Display LEDs (on page 87), leave the server powered on. The Systems Insight Display LEDs are cleared when the server is powered off.
Extend the server from the rack, if applicable ("Extending the server from the rack" on page 27). If the locking latch is locked, use a T-15 Torx screwdriver to unlock the latch. NOTE: The T-15 Torx screwdriver is shipped with the server and can be located on the rear panel ("Rear panel components" on page 82).
Lift up on the hood latch, and remove the access panel.
After installing hardware options, replace the access panel. Be sure that the panel is securely locked into place before powering up the server.
Removal and replacement procedures 58
General memory configuration requirements
The following configuration requirements apply regardless of the AMP mode.
DIMMs must be installed in pairs. DIMM pairs within a memory bank must contain DIMMs with the same part number. Always populate the DIMMs in sequential order per bank: Bank A and then Bank B. Always populate the memory boards in sequential order: Board 1, Board 2, Board 3, and Board 4. Any deviation from this requirement results in the server defaulting to Advanced ECC ("Advanced ECC memory" on page 60) on the next reboot. Dual-rank DIMMs ("Single- and dual-rank DIMMs" on page 59) must be populated before single-rank DIMMs (dual-rank DIMMs must be in the lower bank). The following table lists all valid combinations of single- and dual-rank DIMM configurations for a memory board. "Single" indicates a bank of single-rank DIMMs. "Dual" indicates a bank of dualrank DIMMs. NOTE: A bank contains two DIMMs.
Single Single Dual Dual Dual
Single Single Dual
The server can be configured for any AMP mode in RBSU. RBSU displays a warning message if the selected AMP mode is not supported by the current DIMM configuration. However, if the DIMM configuration at POST does not match the AMP mode selected in RBSU, the server defaults to Advanced ECC ("Advanced ECC memory" on page 60). When this occurs, a message displays during POST and the status LED for the configured AMP mode flashes amber. Unpopulated memory boards (those without any installed DIMMs) can be installed in the server for storing extra memory boards. If your server contains more than 4 GB of memory, consult your operating system documentation for additional requirements.
Single- and dual-rank DIMMs
PC2-3200 DIMMs can either be single- or dual-rank. While it is not normally important for you to differentiate between these two types of DIMMs, certain DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications. Certain configuration requirements exist with single- and dual-rank DIMMs that allow the architecture to optimize performance. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two separate DIMMs on the same module. Although only a single DIMM module, a dual-rank DIMM acts as if it were two separate DIMMs. The primary reason for the existence of dual-rank DIMMs is to provide the largest capacity DIMM given the
Removal and replacement procedures 59
current DIMM technology. If the maximum DIMM technology allows for creating 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM using the same technology would be 4-GB.
Advanced ECC memory
Advanced ECC is the default memory protection mode for this server. In Advanced ECC, the server is protected against correctable memory errors. The server will provide notification if the level of correctable errors exceeds a predefined threshold rate. The server does not fail because of correctable memory errors. Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC in that it is possible to correct certain memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrectable and result in a server failure. Whereas Standard ECC can correct single-bit memory errors, Advanced ECC can correct single-bit memory errors and multibit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the DIMM. The following guidelines apply to Advanced ECC memory:
All general memory requirements apply. Advanced ECC mode is supported with one to four memory boards. Board insertions do not convert the AMP mode while the server is running. A server cannot be converted from Advanced ECC to another AMP mode by inserting a board while the server is running. Board insertions in Advanced ECC are solely for making additional memory resources available to the operating system. Advanced ECC is the only mode in which hot-add operations are supported, and is the only mode in which the amount of memory available to the operating system can be increased without a reboot. If a memory board (which contains DIMMs) is unlocked while in Advanced ECC mode, audio alarms and visual alerts occur.
The following rules apply to hot-add operations. Hot-add is performed by adding a memory board while the server is running, and the additional memory is made available to the operating system without a reboot.
Boards must be inserted sequentially. Multiple hot-add board insertions can be performed one at a time on the same server. For example, if a server has three empty memory board slots, three hot-add board insertions can be performed. If multiple hot-add operations are performed, allow one board insertion operation to complete (as indicated by the memory board LEDs ("Memory board components and LEDs" on page 79) and operating system logs) before inserting another memory board. CAUTION: When the memory board locking switch is unlocked in a mode that does not support hot-add or hot-replace capabilities, audio alarms and visual alerts occur. Removing the memory board at this point causes server failure. To end the audio alarms and visual alerts, move the memory board locking switch back to the locked position. This action does not result in data corruption or server failure. If removal of a single memory board is required and it is the only memory board, power down the server and make the necessary memory changes.
Removal and replacement procedures 60
Online spare memory
Online spare memory provides a higher level of memory protection than Advanced ECC ("Advanced ECC memory" on page 60). With online spare memory, the probability of a server failing because of uncorrectable memory errors is reduced. In this mode, degraded memory that is receiving a high rate of correctable memory errors is automatically disengaged and a replacement set of memory is used in its place. Because DIMMs that are receiving a high rate of correctable memory errors have an increased probability of receiving an uncorrectable memory error (which results in a server failure), the server experiences higher availability. The degraded memory can be replaced during scheduled downtime and poses no additional risk to the server. Online spare memory is supported with one to four memory boards installed. On this server, each installed memory board is protected by its own spare memory. No operating system support is required. The following guidelines apply to online spare memory:
All general memory requirements apply. Online spare memory supports 1, 2, 3, or 4 memory boards. Each board must have a valid online spare configuration. No dependencies exist for the configuration between different memory boards. Each memory board includes its own online spare bank. All boards will operate in online spare memory mode independently. Each board can failover to its online spare bank independent of the other memory boards. Some boards can be in degraded online spare mode while others are still in operational online spare memory mode. The minimum valid online spare configuration for a memory board requires at least one bank of dual-rank DIMMs or two banks of single-rank DIMMs. If the server does not meet these requirements, an error message appears during POST and the server defaults to Advanced ECC ("Advanced ECC memory" on page 60). The server automatically configures the optimal online spare solution. Hot-plug operations are not supported.
HP recommends the following configurations. These configurations result in optimal use of memory. Other configurations are valid, but do not result in the maximum amount of installed memory being available to the operating system.
If only single-rank DIMMs are used on a memory board, all DIMMs should be of the same size on that memory board. If only dual-rank DIMMs are used on a memory board, all DIMMs should be of the same size on that memory board. If a mixture of single- and dual-rank DIMMs are used on a memory board, the dual-rank DIMMs should be twice the size of any single-rank DIMM.
After installing DIMMs, use RBSU to configure the server ("Configuring the memory" on page 63) for online spare memory support.

From within HP SIM ("HP Systems Insight Manager" on page 72) From within Survey Utility From within operating system-specific IML viewers
For NetWare: IML Viewer For Windows: IML Viewer For Linux: IML Viewer Application
From within the iLO 2 user interface From within HP Insight Diagnostics (on page 72)
For more information, refer to the Management CD in the HP ProLiant Essentials Foundation Pack.
Integrated Lights-Out 2 technology
The iLO 2 subsystem is a standard component of selected ProLiant servers that provides server health and remote server manageability. The iLO 2 subsystem includes an intelligent microprocessor, secure memory, and a dedicated network interface. This design makes iLO 2 independent of the host server and its
Diagnostic tools 71
operating system. The iLO 2 subsystem provides remote access to any authorized network client, sends alerts, and provides other server management functions. Using iLO 2, you can:
Remotely power up, power down, or reboot the host server. Send alerts from iLO 2 regardless of the state of the host server. Access advanced troubleshooting features through the iLO 2 interface. Diagnose iLO 2 using HP SIM through a web browser and SNMP alerting.
For more information about iLO 2 features, refer to the iLO 2 documentation on the Documentation CD or on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out).
Automatic Server Recovery
ASR is a feature that causes the system to restart when a catastrophic operating system error occurs, such as a blue screen, ABEND, or panic. A system fail-safe timer, the ASR timer, starts when the System Management driver, also known as the Health Driver, is loaded. When the operating system is functioning properly, the system periodically resets the timer. However, when the operating system fails, the timer expires and restarts the server. ASR increases server availability by restarting the server within a specified time after a system hang or shutdown. At the same time, the HP SIM console notifies you by sending a message to a designated pager number that ASR has restarted the system. You can disable ASR from the HP SIM console or through RBSU.
HP Systems Insight Manager
HP SIM is a web-based application that allows system administrators to accomplish normal administrative tasks from any remote location, using a web browser. HP SIM provides device management capabilities that consolidate and integrate management data from HP and third-party devices. IMPORTANT: You must install and use HP SIM to benefit from the Pre-Failure Warranty for processors, SAS and SCSI hard drives, and memory modules. For additional information, refer to the Management CD in the HP ProLiant Essentials Foundation Pack or the HP SIM website (http://www.hp.com/go/hpsim).
HP Insight Diagnostics
HP Insight Diagnostics is a proactive server management tool, available in both offline and online versions, that provides diagnostics and troubleshooting capabilities to assist IT administrators who verify server installations, troubleshoot problems, and perform repair validation. HP Insight Diagnostics Offline Edition performs various in-depth system and component testing while the OS is not running. To run this utility, launch the SmartStart CD. HP Insight Diagnostics Online Edition is a web-based application that captures system configuration and other related data needed for effective server management. Available in Microsoft Windows and Linux versions, the utility helps to ensure proper system operation.

Memory board components and LEDs
Error indicators remain illuminated when the system is powered off so that the status of the LEDs can still be seen. This behavior matches the behavior of all the other error indicators in the server. The indicators are only cleared in the following situations:
If the locking switch is locked after the board is reinstalled If the server is rebooted If the board is removed from the server CAUTION: When the memory board locking switch is unlocked in a mode that does not support hot-add or hot-replace capabilities, audio alarms and visual alerts occur. Removing the memory board at this point causes server failure. To end the audio alarms and visual alerts, move the memory board locking switch back to the locked position. This action does not result in data corruption or server failure. If removal of a single memory board is required and it is the only memory board, power down the server and make the necessary memory changes.
Locking switch Release latch Ejector lever Removable
N/A N/A N/A Off = Do not remove memory board if server is powered on Green = Memory board can be safely removed

Off = Board not online or board not configured for Hot-Plug RAID Memory mode Amber = Server is in degraded Hot-Plug RAID Memory mode Flashing amber = Memory configuration error* Green = Hot-Plug RAID Memory mode
Off = Power off or locking switch unlocked Amber = Memory error detected Flashing amber = Memory configuration error* Flashing green = Board is rebuilding Green = Normal
* AMP configuration errors occur when the current memory configuration is not valid for the configured AMP mode:
S3 S4 S5
Reserved Reserved Password protection override Invalidate configuration Reserved
Reserved Reserved Off = No function On = Clears power-on password and administrator password Off = Normal On = Clears NVRAM Reserved
Boot device selector switch
The boot device selector switch setting determines the device access order of the multibay drives in the server. The default setting for the boot device selector switch is FLP TOP.
Server component identification 86
When the boot device selector switch is set to FLP TOP, the optical drive in the bottom bay is designated as the primary optical drive. The diskette drive in the top bay is bootable. The server cannot boot from a diskette drive in the bottom bay when the boot device selector switch is set to FLP TOP. When the boot device selector switch is set to FLP BOT, the optical drive in the top bay is designated as the primary optical drive. The diskette drive in the bottom bay is bootable. The server cannot boot from a diskette drive in the top bay when the boot device selector switch is set to FLP BOT. NOTE: If two optical drives are installed in the server, the server will first attempt to boot from the primary optical drive ("Boot device selector switch" on page 86). The boot device selector switch setting determines which drive is the primary optical drive. Switch setting Description
Primary optical drive in bottom bay is bootable FLP BOT Primary optical drive in top bay is bootable Diskette drive in bottom bay is bootable
FLP TOP (default) Diskette drive in top bay is bootable
Setting the switch to view port 85 codes
To change the display on the Systems Insight Display to view port 84 and 85 codes ("Troubleshooting the system using port 85 codes" on page 73):
Extend the server from the rack ("Extending the server from the rack" on page 27). Remove the access panel ("Removing the access panel" on page 29). Locate the switch on the Systems Insight Display. Set the switch to the P85 position to view port 85 codes.
Systems Insight Display LEDs
The front panel health LEDs indicate only the current hardware status. In some situations, HP SIM might report server status differently than the health LEDs because the software tracks more system attributes. The amber Systems Insight Display LEDs are located on the media board. In normal operations, all of the LEDs are off unless one of the components fails. NOTE: The system management driver must be installed for the internal health LED to provide pre-failure and warranty conditions.
