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.

SAS/SATA Backplanes

The system can support either an active SAS (Product Code - ASR1500SASBP) or a passive SAS/SATA backplane (Product Code - ASR1500PASBP). The backplanes provide the platform support for peripheral drives and hot-swap SAS or SATA hard drives. To eliminate several cables, the backplanes are also used as a pathway for signals from the server board to various platform interconnects, including those for the control panel and peripheral drives.

The passive backplane acts as a 'pass-through' for the SAS/SATA data from the drives to the SATA controller on the server board or a SAS/SATA controller add-in card. It provides the physical requirements for the hot-swap capabilities. The active backplane has a built-in SAS controller that does not need communication with the baseboard controller or an add-in card.

RAID Support

The Intel® Server System SR1500AL provides an embedded SATA controller that supports both 1.5 and 3.0 Gbps data transfer rates. The Intel® Server System SR1500ALSAS provides SAS and SATA support. Both systems can be configured for RAID 0, 1, and 10.

The Intel® Server System SR1500ALSAS can be configured for SW RAID 5 by using the Intel® RAID Activation Key AXXRAKSW5 accessory.

For information on configuring RAID, see the RAID software user’s guide that is included on the Intel® Server Deployment Toolkit 2.0 CD.
