Intel server boards contain a number of high-density VLSI and power delivery components that need adequate airflow for cooling. Intel's own chassis are designed and tested to meet the intended thermal requirements of these components when the fully integrated system is used together. It is the responsibility of the system integrator that chooses not to use Intel developed server building blocks to consult vendor datasheets and operating parameters to determine the amount of airflow required for their specific application and environmental conditions. Intel Corporation can not be held responsible if components fail or the server board does not operate correctly when used outside any of their published operating or non-operating limits.

Warnings

Heed safety instructions: Before working with your server product, whether you are using this guide or any other resource as a reference, pay close attention to the safety instructions. You must adhere to the assembly instructions in this guide to ensure and maintain compliance with existing product certifications and approvals. Use only the described, regulated components specified in this guide. Use of other products / components will void the UL listing and other regulatory approvals of the product and will most likely result in noncompliance with product regulations in the region(s) in which the product is sold.

System power on/off: The power button DOES NOT turn off the system AC power. To remove power from system, you must unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet. Make sure the AC power cord is unplugged before you open the chassis, add, or remove any components.

Hazardous conditions, devices and cables: Hazardous electrical conditions may be present on power, telephone, and communication cables. Turn off the server and disconnect the power cord, telecommunications systems, networks, and modems attached to the server before opening it. Otherwise, personal injury or equipment damage can result.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) and ESD protection: ESD can damage disk drives, boards, and other parts. We recommend that you perform all procedures in this chapter only at an ESD workstation. If one is not available, provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap attached to chassis ground any unpainted metal surface on your server when handling parts.

ESD and handling boards: Always handle boards carefully. They can be extremely sensitive to ESD. Hold boards only by their edges. After removing a board from its protective wrapper or from the server, place the board component side up on a grounded, static free surface. Use a conductive foam pad if available but not the board wrapper. Do not slide board over any surface.

Installing or removing jumpers: A jumper is a small plastic encased conductor that slips over two jumper pins. Some jumpers have a small tab on top that you can grip with your fingertips or with a pair of fine needle nosed pliers. If your jumpers do not have such a tab, take care when using needle nosed pliers to remove or install a jumper; grip the narrow sides of the jumper with the pliers, never the wide sides. Gripping the wide sides can damage the contacts inside the jumper, causing intermittent problems with the function controlled by that jumper. Take care to grip with, but not squeeze, the pliers or other tool you use to remove a jumper, or you may bend or break the pins on the board.

Intel® Server Board S5000VSA User’s Guide

RAID Support

The Intel® Server Board S5000VSA is available in both SATA and SAS models. The SATA model has order code S5000VSASATA. The SAS model has order code S5000VSASAS. The SAS model provides both SAS and SATA support; the SATA model provides only SATA support.

For information on configuring RAID, see the RAID Software Guide that is included on the Intel® Server Deployment Toolkit CD.

SATA Server Board

The Intel® Server Board S5000VSA provides an embedded SATA controller that supports both 1.5 and 3.0 Gbps data transfer rates.

The BIOS Setup utility provides multiple drive configuration options on the Advanced | ATA Controller setup page, some of which affect the ability to configure RAID. The “Onboard SATA Controller” option is enabled by default. When this option is enabled, the “SATA Mode” option can be set to either Legacy or Enhanced. The Legacy and Enhanced modes affect the RAID configuration as follows:

Legacy supports four disk drives and does not provide RAID support.

Enhanced supports six disk drives and is required for RAID configurations.

When the enhanced mode is selected, you can choose to enable or disable “AHCI Mode” or “Configure SATA as RAID”. Intel® Embedded Server RAID Technology II is enabled by the option, “Configure SATA as RAID.” The Intel® Embedded Server RAID Technology II feature provides RAID modes 0, 1, and 10.

For RAID 0, 1, and 10, enclosure management is provided through the SATA_SGPIO connector on the server board when a cable is attached between this connector on the server board and to the backplane I2C interface.

If RAID 5 is desired, the optional Intel® RAID Activation Key AXXRAKSW5 (available post-release) can be installed. To enable RAID 5, this activation key is placed on the SATA_Key connector that is located at the left side of the server board. For information on how to install the Intel® RAID Activation Key AXXRAKSW5 accessory to enable RAID 5, see the documentation that is included with the accessory kit.

Notes: For assistance in navigating through the F2 BIOS Setup utility, see the Intel® Server Board S5000VSA Technical Product Specification.

For information on setting up RAID, see the RAID Software Guide that is included on the Intel® Server Deployment Toolkit CD.
