Features and technologies

The server uses the following features and technologies:

vUEFI-compliant server firmware

UEFI replaces the basic input/output system (BIOS) and defines a standard interface between the operating system, platform firmware, and external devices. The server design combines the UEFI capabilities and features with legacy BIOS compatibility. UEFI-compliant servers are capable of booting UEFI-compliant operating systems, BIOS-based operating systems, and BIOS-based adapters as well as UEFI-compliant adapters.

Note: This server does not support DOS.

vDual-core or quad-core processing

The server supports up to two Xeondual-core or quad-core microprocessors. The server comes with only one microprocessor installed.

vIntegrated Management Module

The Integrated Management Module (IMM) combines service processor functions, video controller, and (when IMM Premium is installed) remote presence function in a single chip. The IMM provides advanced service-processor control, monitoring, and alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM Premium also provides a virtual presence capability

© Lenovo 2008, 2009. Portions © IBM Corp. 2007, 2008.

7

for remote server management capabilities. The IMM provides remote server management through the following industry-standard interfaces:

Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) version 2.0

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) version 3

Common Information Model (CIM)

Web browser

v Remote presence capability and blue-screen capture

IMM Premium is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:

Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 at 75 Hz, regardless of the system state

Remotely accessing the server, using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client

Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server

Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an operating-system hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition.

vLarge system-memory capability

The memory bus supports up to 128 GB of system memory. The memory controller supports error correcting code (ECC) for up to 16 industry-standard PC3-10600R-999 (single-rank or dual-rank), 800, 1067, and 1333 MHz, DDR3 (third-generation double-data-rate), registered, synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs).

vIntegrated network support

The server comes with an integrated dual-port Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet controller, which supports connection to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps network. For more information, see “Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controllers” on page 138.

vIntegrated Trust Platform Module

This integrated security chip performs cryptographic functions and stores private and public secure keys. It provides the hardware support for the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) specification.

vLarge data-storage capacity and hot-swap capability

The server supports a maximum of six 2.5-inch hot-swap Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drives or hot-swap Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drives.

With the hot-swap feature, you can add, remove, or replace hard disk drives without turning off the server.

vEasyLED diagnostics

EasyLED diagnostics provides LEDs to help you diagnose problems. For more information about the EasyLED, see “EasyLED diagnostics panel” on page 17.

vPCI adapter capabilities

The server has two PCI interface slots (one supports low-profile cards and one supports half-length, full-height cards). Both slots can support PCI Express adapters. See “Removing and installing an adapter” on page 55 for detailed information.

8 ThinkServer RD210 Types 3795, 3796, 3818, and 3819: Installation and User Guide

vRedundant connection

The addition of an optional Ethernet daughter card provides failover capability to a redundant Ethernet connection with the applicable application installed. If a problem occurs with the primary Ethernet connection and the optional Ethernet daughter card is installed on the server, all Ethernet traffic that is associated with the primary connection is automatically switched to the optional redundant Ethernet daughter card connection. If the applicable device drivers are installed, this switching occurs without data loss and without user intervention.

vRedundant cooling and optional power capabilities

The server supports a maximum of two 675-watt hot-swap power supplies and six hot-swap fans, which provide redundancy and hot-swap capability for a typical configuration. The redundant cooling by the fans in the server enables continued operation if one of the fans fails. The server comes with one 675-watt hot-swap power supply and five fans. You can order the second optional power supply with the additional fan.

vRAID support

The RAID adapter provides hardware redundant array of independent disks (RAID) support to create configurations. The standard RAID adapter provides RAID levels 0, 1, and 1E. An optional RAID adapter is available for purchase that provides RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60.

vSystems-management capabilities

The servers comes with an Integrated Management Module (IMM). When the IMM is used with the systems-management software that comes with the server, you can manage the functions of the server locally and remotely. The IMM also provides system monitoring, event recording, and network alert capability. The system-management connector provides additional security by physically separating the management network traffic from the production network. You can use the Setup utility to configure the server to use a dedicated systems-management network or a shared network.

vTCP/IP offload engine (TOE) support

The Ethernet controllers in the server support TOE, which is a technology that offloads the TCP/IP flow from the microprocessor and I/O subsystem to increase the speed of the TCP/IP flow. When an operating system that supports TOE is running on the server and TOE is enabled, the server supports TOE operation. See the operating-system documentation for information about enabling TOE.

Note: The Linux operating system does not support TOE.

vPreboot diagnostics program

The preboot diagnostics programs are stored on the integrated USB memory. They collect and analyze system information to aid in diagnosing server problems. The diagnostic programs collect the following information about the server:

System configuration

Network interfaces and settings

Installed hardware

EasyLED status

Service processor status and configuration

Vital product data, firmware, and UEFI (formerly called BIOS) configuration

Hard disk drive health

RAID controller configuration

Event logs for RAID controllers and service processors

Chapter 3. What is included with your server 9

The diagnostics programs create a merged log that includes events from all collected logs. The information is collected into a file that you can send to service and support. Additionally, you can view the information locally through a generated text report file. You can also copy the log to a removable media and view the log from a Web browser.

For additional information about diagnostics, see the Hardware Maintenance

Manual.

vEasyStartup DVD

The ThinkServer EasyStartup program guides you through the configuration of the RAID controller and the installation of the operating system and device drivers. See “Using the EasyStartup DVD” on page 127 for details.

vEasyManage DVD

The ThinkServer EasyManage program helps you manage and administer your servers through remote problem notification as well as monitoring and alerting.

vHard disk drive activity LEDs: This LED is used on SAS or SATA hard disk drives. Each hot-swap hard disk drive has an activity LED, and when this LED is flashing, it indicates that the drive is in use.

vHard disk drive status LEDs: This LED is used on SAS or SATA hard disk drives. When this LED is lit, it indicates that the drive has failed. If an optional RAID controller is installed in the server, when this LED is flashing slowly (one flash per second), it indicates that the drive is being rebuilt. When the LED is flashing rapidly (three flashes per second), it indicates that the controller is identifying the drive.

vOperator information panel: This panel contains controls and LEDs that provides information about the status of the server.

vOperator information panel release latch: Slide the blue release latch to the left to pull out the EasyLED panel and view the EasyLED LEDs and buttons. See “EasyLED diagnostics panel” on page 17 for more information about the EasyLED.

vVideo connector: Connect a monitor to this connector. The video connectors on the front and rear of the server can be used simultaneously.

vUSB connectors: Connect a USB device, such as a USB mouse, keyboard, or other device to any of these connectors.

vEthernet activity LEDs: When these LEDs are lit, they indicate that the server is transmitting to or receiving signals from the Ethernet LAN that is connected to the Ethernet port.

vSystem-locator button/LED: Use this blue LED to visually locate the server among other servers. This LED is controlled by the IMM.

vSystem-information LED: When this amber LED is lit, it indicates that a noncritical event has occurred. Check the error log for additional information. See the Hardware Maintenance Manual for more information about error logs.

vSystem-error LED: When this amber LED is lit, it indicates that a system error has occurred. A system-error LED is also on the rear of the server. An LED on the EasyLED panel on the operator information panel is also lit to help isolate the error. This LED is controlled by the IMM.

vPower-control button and power-on LED: Press this button to turn the server on and off manually or to wake the server from a reduced-power state. The states of the power-on LED are as follows:

Off: AC power is not present, or the power supply or the LED itself has failed.

Flashing rapidly (4 times per second): The server is turned off and is not ready to be turned on. The power-control button is disabled. This will last approximately 1 to 3 minutes.

Flashing slowly (once per second): The server is turned off and is ready to be turned on. You can press the power-control button to turn on the server.

Lit: The server is turned on.

Fading on and off: The server is in a reduced-power state. To wake the server, press the power-control button or use the IMM Web interface. See “Logging on to the Web interface” on page 138 for information on logging on to the IMM Web interface.

EasyLED diagnostics panel

The EasyLED diagnostics panel is located on the top of the operator information panel.

Note: The system service label on the underside of the cover also provides information about the location of the EasyLED.

To access the EasyLED diagnostics panel, slide the blue release button on the operator information panel to the left. Pull forward on the unit until the hinge of the operator panel is free of the server chassis. Then pull down on the unit, so that you can view the EasyLED panel information.

Note: When you slide the EasyLED diagnostics panel out of the server to check the LEDs or checkpoint codes, do not run the server continuously with EasyLED diagnostics panel outside of the server. The panel should only be outside of the server a short time. The EasyLED panel must remain in the server when the server is running to ensure proper cooling.

The following illustration shows the LEDs and controls on the EasyLED panel.

vRemind button:This button places the system-error LED on the front panel into Remind mode. In Remind mode, the system-error LED flashes rapidly until the problem is corrected, the system is restarted, or a new problem occurs.

Chapter 4. Server controls, LEDs, and power 17

By placing the system-error LED indicator in Remind mode, you acknowledge that you are aware of the last failure but will not take immediate action to correct the problem. The remind function is controlled by the IMM.

vNMI button: Press this button to force a nonmaskable interrupt to the microprocessor. You might have to use a pen or the end of a straightened paper clip to press the button. It allows you to blue screen the server and take a memory dump (use this button only when directed by service personnel).

vCheckpoint code display: This display 1 provides a checkpoint code that indicates the point at which the system stopped during the boot block and POST. A checkpoint code is either a byte or a word value that is produced by UEFI. The display does not provide error codes or suggest components to be replaced. Checkpoint codes can be used by service and support for more in-depth troubleshooting. By using the checkpoint code display, you do not have to wait for the video to initialize each time you restart the server.

There are two types of checkpoint codes: field programmable gate array (FPGA) hardware checkpoint codes and UEFI checkpoint codes. The UEFI checkpoint codes might change because of code sequence and timing changes or when the server firmware is updated.

vReset button: Press this button to reset the server and run the power-on self-test (POST). You might have to use a pen or the end of a straightened paper clip to press the button. The Reset button is in the lower-right corner of the EasyLED panel.

vDC power LED: Each hot-swap power supply has a dc power LED and an ac power LED. When the dc power LED is lit, it indicates that the power supply is supplying adequate dc power to the system. During typical operation, both the ac and dc power LEDs are lit. For any other combination of LEDs, see the

Hardware Maintenance Manual.

vPower connector: Connect the power cord to this connector.

vPower-on LED: When this LED is lit and not flashing, it indicates that the server is turned on. The states of the power-on LED are as follows:

Off: AC power is not present, or the power supply or the LED itself has failed.

Flashing rapidly (4 times per second): The server is turned off and is not ready to be turned on. The power-control button is disabled. This will last approximately 1 to 3 minutes.

Flashing slowly (once per second): The server is turned off and is ready to be turned on. You can press the power-control button to turn on the server.

Lit: The server is turned on.

Fading on and off: The server is in a reduced-power state. To wake the server, press the power-control button or use the IMM Web interface.

vSystem-error LED: When this LED is lit, it indicates that a system error has occurred. An LED on the EasyLED panel is also lit to help isolate the error.

Chapter 4. Server controls, LEDs, and power 25

vSystem-locator LED: Use this LED to visually locate the server among other servers.

vVideo connector: Connect a monitor to this connector. The video connectors on the front and rear of the server can be used simultaneously.

vSerial connector: Connect a 9-pin serial device to this connector. The serial port is shared with the integrated management module (IMM). The IMM can take control of the shared serial port to redirect serial traffic, using Serial over LAN (SOL).

vUSB connectors: Connect a USB device, such as a USB mouse, keyboard, or other device to any of these connectors.

vEthernet link LEDs: When these LEDs are lit, they indicate that there is an active link connection on the 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-TX interface for the Ethernet port.

vEthernet connectors: Use either of these connectors to connect the server to a network. When you use the Ethernet 1 connector, the server's network can be shared with the IMM using a single network cable.

vSystems-management Ethernet connector: Use this connector to manage the server using a dedicated management network. By using this connector, IMM cannot be accessed directly from production network. A dedicated management network provides additional security by physically separating the management network traffic from the production network. You can use the UEFI Setup Utility to configure the server to use a dedicated systems management network or a shared network.

System-board switches and jumpers

The following illustration shows the switches and jumpers on the system board.

30 ThinkServer RD210 Types 3795, 3796, 3818, and 3819: Installation and User Guide

 

Jumper name

Jumper setting

 

 

 

1

UEFI boot recovery jumper

v Pins 1 and 2: Normal (default) Loads the primary UEFI

 

(J29)

(formerly called BIOS) firmware ROM page.

 

 

 

 

v Pins 2 and 3: Loads the secondary (backup) UEFI

 

 

firmware ROM page.

 

 

 

2

IMM recovery jumper

v Pins 1 and 2: Normal (default) Loads the primary IMM

 

(J147)

firmware ROM page.

 

 

 

 

v Pins 2 and 3: Loads the secondary (backup) IMM

 

 

firmware ROM page.

 

 

 

3

SW4 switch block

 

 

(reserved)

 

 

 

 

4

SW3 switch block

 

 

 

 

Notes:

1.If no jumper is present, the server will respond as if the pins are set to 1 and 2.

2.Changing the position of the UEFI boot recovery jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3 before the server is turned on will alter which flash ROM page is loaded. Do not change the jumper pin position after the server is turned on. This can cause an unpredictable problem.

The following table describes the functions of the SW3 switch block.

Table 3. SW3 switch block definition

Switch

 

 

number

Default position

Description

 

 

 

1

Off

Clear CMOS. When this switch is

 

 

toggled to On, it clears the CMOS

 

 

data, which clears the power-on

 

 

password.

 

 

 

2

Off

Reserved.

 

 

 

3

Off

Reserved.

 

 

 

4

Off

Reserved.

 

 

 

5

Off

Power-on password override.

 

 

Changing the position of this switch

 

 

bypasses the power-on password

 

 

check the next time the server is

 

 

turned on and starts the UEFI Setup

 

 

Utility program so that you can

 

 

change or delete the power-on

 

 

password. You do not have to move

 

 

the switch back to the default

 

 

position after the power-on password

 

 

in overridden.

 

 

Changing the position of this switch

 

 

does not affect the administrator

 

 

password check if an administrator

 

 

password is set.

 

 

See “Passwords” on page 119 for

 

 

additional information about

 

 

passwords.

 

 

 

Chapter 4. Server controls, LEDs, and power 31

Table 3. SW3 switch block definition (continued)

Switch

 

 

number

Default position

Description

 

 

 

6

Off

When you toggle this switch to On,

 

 

this causes a forced power-on which

 

 

overrides the power-on and

 

 

power-off button on the server and

 

 

they become nonfunctional.

 

 

 

7

Off

Reserved.

 

 

 

8

Off

Reserved.

 

 

 

Important:

1.Before you change any switch settings or move any jumpers, turn off the server; then, disconnect all power cords and external cables. See safety information in “Safety” on page vii.

2.Any system-board switch or jumper blocks that are not shown in the illustrations in this document are reserved.

Server power features

When the server is connected to an ac power source but is not turned on, the operating system does not run, and all core logic except for the service processor (the Integrated Management Module) is shut down; however, the server can respond to requests to the service processor, such as a remote request to turn on the server. The power-on LED flashes to indicate that the server is connected to ac power but is not turned on.

Turning on the server

Approximately 5 seconds after the server is connected to ac power, one or more fans might start running to provide cooling while the server is connected to power and the power-on button LED will blink quickly. Approximately 1 to 3 minutes after the server is connected to ac power, the power-control button becomes active (the power-on LED will blink slowly), and one or more fans might start running to provide cooling while the server is connected to power. You can turn on the server by pressing the power-control button.

The server can also be turned on in any of the following ways:

vIf a power failure occurs while the server is turned on, the server will restart automatically when power is restored.

Chapter 4. Server controls, LEDs, and power 35

Note: When 4 GB or more of memory (physical or logical) is installed, some memory is reserved for various system resources and is unavailable to the operating system. The amount of memory that is reserved for system resources depends on the operating system, the configuration of the server, and the configured PCI options.

Turning off the server

When you turn off the server and leave it connected to ac power, the server can respond to requests to the service processor, such as a remote request to turn on the server. While the server remains connected to ac power, one or more fans might continue to run. To remove all power from the server, you must disconnect it from the power source.

Some operating systems require an orderly shutdown before you turn off the server. See your operating-system documentation for information about shutting down the operating system.

Chapter 5. Installing optional devices and replacing customer replaceable units

This chapter provides detailed instructions for installing optional hardware devices in the server.

Installation guidelines

Before you install optional devices, read the following information:

vRead the safety information in “Safety” on page vii. This information will help you work safely.

vWhen you install your new server, take the opportunity to download and apply the most recent firmware updates. This step will help to ensure that any known issues are addressed and that your server is ready to function at maximum levels of performance. To download firmware updates for your server, complete the following steps:

Note: Changes are made periodically to the Lenovo Web site. The actual procedure might vary slightly from what is described in this document.

1.Go to: http://www.lenovo.com/support.

2.Enter your product number (machine type and model number) or select

Servers and Storage from the Select your product list.

3.From Family list, select ThinkServer RD210, and click Continue.

4.Click Downloads and drivers to download firmware updates.

vBefore you install optional hardware, make sure that the server is working correctly. Start the server, and make sure that the operating system starts, if an operating system is installed, or that a I9990305 error code is displayed, indicating that an operating system was not found but the server is otherwise working correctly. If the server is not working correctly, see the Hardware Maintenance Manual for diagnostic information.

vObserve good housekeeping in the area where you are working. Place removed covers and other parts in a safe place.

vIf you must start the server while the is removed, make sure that no one is near the server and that no tools or other objects have been left inside the server.

vDo not attempt to lift an object that you think is too heavy for you. If you have to lift a heavy object, observe the following precautions:

– Make sure that you can stand safely without slipping.

– Distribute the weight of the object equally between your feet.

– Use a slow lifting force. Never move suddenly or twist when you lift a heavy object.

– To avoid straining the muscles in your back, lift by standing or by pushing up with your leg muscles.

vMake sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical outlets for the server, monitor, and other devices.

vBack up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.

vHave a small flat-blade screwdriver available.

vYou do not have to turn off the server to install or replace hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices.

vBlue on a component indicates touch points, where you can grip the component to remove it from or install it in the server, open or close a latch, and so on.

vOrange on a component or an orange label on or near a component indicates that the component can be hot-swapped, which means that if the server and operating system support hot-swap capability, you can remove or install the component while the server is running. (Orange can also indicate touch points on hot-swap components.) See the instructions for removing or installing a specific hot-swap component for any additional procedures that you might have to perform before you remove or install the component.

vWhen you are finished working on the server, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires.

vFor a list of supported optional devices for the server, see http://www.lenovo.com/ thinkserver.

System reliability guidelines

To help ensure proper system cooling and system reliability, make sure that the following requirements are met:

vEach of the drive bays has a drive or a filler panel and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) shield installed in it.

vIf the server has redundant power, each of the power-supply bays has a power supply installed in it.

vThere is adequate space around the server to allow the server cooling system to work properly. Leave approximately 50 mm (2.0 in.) of open space around the front and rear of the server. Do not place objects in front of the fans. For proper cooling and airflow, replace the server cover before you turn on the server. Operating the server for extended periods of time (more than 30 minutes) with the server cover removed might damage server components.

vYou have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.

vYou have replaced a failed fan within 48 hours.

vYou have replaced a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of removal.

Working inside the server with the power on

Attention: Static electricity that is released to internal server components when the server is powered-on might cause the server to halt, which might result in the loss of data. To avoid this potential problem, always use an electrostatic-discharge wrist strap or other grounding system when you work inside the server with the power on.

You might be instructed to turn on the server while the cover is off, to look at system-board LEDs. Follow these guidelines when you work inside a server that is turned on:

vAvoid wearing loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts before working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working inside the server.

vDo not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.

vRemove jewelry, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, and loose-fitting wrist watches.

vRemove items from your shirt pocket, such as pens and pencils, that could fall into the server as you lean over it.

vAvoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hairpins, and screws, into the server.

Handling static-sensitive devices

Attention: Static electricity can damage the server and other electronic devices. To avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective packages until you are ready to install them.

To reduce the possibility of damage from electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:

vLimit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around you.

vThe use of a grounding system is recommended. For example, wear an electrostatic-discharge wrist strap, if one is available.

vHandle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.

vDo not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed circuitry.

vDo not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.

vWhile the device is still in its static-protective package, touch it to an unpainted metal part of the server for at least 2 seconds. This drains static electricity from the package and from your body.

vRemove the device from its package and install it directly into the server without setting down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, put it back into its static-protective package. Do not place the device on the server cover or on a metal surface.

vTake additional care when you handle devices during cold weather. Heating reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Installing a memory module (DIMMs)

The following notes describe the types of DIMMs that the server supports and other information that you must consider when you install DIMMs :

58 ThinkServer RD210 Types 3795, 3796, 3818, and 3819: Installation and User Guide

vThe server supports only industry-standard double-data-rate 3 (DDR3), 800, 1066, or 1333 MHz, PC3-10600R-999 (single-rank or dual-rank), registered, synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) with error correcting code (ECC).

The specifications of a DDR3 DIMM are on a label on the DIMM, in the following format.

ggg eRxff-PC3-wwwwwm-aa-bb-cc where:

ggg is the total capacity of the DIMM (for example, 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB) e is the number of ranks

1 = single-rank

2 = dual-rank

4 = quad-rank

ff is the device organization (bit width)

4 = x4 organization (4 DQ lines per SDRAM)

8 = x8 organization

16 = x16 organization

wwwww is the DIMM bandwidth, in MBps

6400 = 6.40 GBps (PC3-800 SDRAMs, 8-byte primary data bus) 8500 = 8.53 GBps (PC3-1066 SDRAMs, 8-byte primary data bus) 10600 = 10.66 GBps (PC3-1333 SDRAMs, 8-byte primary data bus) 12800 = 12.80 GBps PC3-1600 SDRAMs, 8-byte primary data bus)

m is the DIMM type

E = Unbuffered DIMM (UDIMM) with ECC (x72-bit module data bus) R = Registered DIMM (RDIMM)

U = Unbuffered DIMM with no ECC (x64-bit primary data bus)

aais the CAS latency, in clocks at maximum operating frequency

bbis the JEDEC SPD Revision Encoding and Additions level

ccis the reference design file for the design of the DIMM

d is the revision number of the reference design of the DIMM

vThe server supports a maximum of 16 single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs.

Note: To determine the type of a DIMM, see the label on the DIMM. The information on the label is in the format xxxxx nRxxx PC3-xxxxx-xx-xx-xxx. The numeral in the sixth numerical position indicates whether the DIMM is single-rank (n=1) or dual-rank (n=2).

vThe server supports three single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs per channel. The following table shows an example of the maximum amount of memory that you can install using ranked DIMMs:

Chapter 5. Installing optional devices and replacing customer replaceable units 59

vThe DIMM options that are available for the server are 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB (when available). The sever supports a minimum of 1 GB and a maximum of 128 GB of system memory.

Note: The amount of usable memory is reduced depending on the system configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system resources. To view the total amount of installed memory and the amount of configured memory, run the Setup utility.

vA minimum of one DIMM must be installed for each microprocessor. For example, you must install a minimum of two DIMMs if the server has two microprocessors installed. However, to improve system performance, install a minimum of three DIMMs for each microprocessor.

vThe maximum operating speed of the server is determined by the slowest DIMM installed in the server.

DIMM installation sequence

vThe server comes with a minimum of two 1 GB DIMMs, installed in connectors 3 and 6. When you install additional DIMMs, install them in the order shown in the following table to optimize system performance. In non-mirroring mode, all three channels on the memory interface for each microprocessor can be populated in any order and have no matching requirements.

Memory mirroring

vThe server supports memory mirroring (mirroring mode):

Memory-mirroring mode replicates and stores data on two pairs of DIMMs within two channels simultaneously. If a failure occurs, the memory controller switches from the primary pair of memory DIMMs to the backup pair of DIMMs. To enable memory mirroring through the Setup utility, select System Settings → Memory. When you use the memory mirroring feature, consider the following information:

-When you use memory mirroring, you must install a pair of DIMMs at a time. One DIMM must be in channel 0, and the mirroring DIMM must be in the same slot in channel 1. The two DIMMs in each pair must be identical in size, type, and rank (single or dual) , and organization, but not in speed. The channels run at the speed of the slowest DIMM in any of the channels.

-Channel 2, DIMM connectors 8 ,7, 15, and 16 are not used in memory-mirroring mode.

-The maximum available memory is reduced to half of the installed memory when memory mirroring is enabled. For example, if you install 64 GB of memory, only 32 GB of addressable memory is available when you use memory mirroring.

The following diagram shows the memory channel interface layout with the DIMM installation sequence for mirroring mode. The numbers within boxes indicate the DIMM population sequence in pairs within the channels, and the numbers next to the boxes indicate the DIMM connectors within the channels. For example, the following illustration shows the first pair of DIMMs (indicated by ones (1) inside the boxes) should be installed in DIMM connectors 3 on channel 0 and DIMM connector 6 on channel 1 DIMM connectors 7, 8, 15, and 16 on channel 2 are

60 ThinkServer RD210 Types 3795, 3796, 3818, and 3819: Installation and User Guide

not used in memory-mirroring mode.

The following table lists the DIMM connectors on each memory channel.

The following illustration shows the memory connector layout that is associated with each microprocessor. For example, DIMM connectors 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 (DIMM connectors are shown underneath the boxes) are associated with microprocessor 2 slot (CPU2) and DIMM connectors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are associated with microprocessor 1 slot (CPU1). The numbers within the boxes indicates the installation sequence of the DIMM pairs. For example, the first DIMM pair (indicated within the boxes by ones (1)) should be installed in DIMM connectors 3 and 6, which is associated with microprocessor 1 (CPU1).

Note: You can install DIMMs for microprocessor 2 as soon as you install microprocessor 2; you do not have to wait until all of the DIMM slots for microprocessor 1 are filled.
