BIOS Virtual DIP Switch

What is BIOS Virtual DIP Switch?

SP command “su” specifies the settings of the BIOS virtual DIP switch. When the setting value specified in Table 4-28is set to the BIOS virtual switch, the BIOS performs the operation described in the table. Alogical-orof the setting value in Table4-28can be set to the BIOS virtual DIP switch. When this happens, the BIOS performs plural operations at the same time.

! CAUTION

Changing a setting can cause the server to lose system configuration information. Use the virtual DIP switch function with caution. Call your system administrator or NEC Technical Support personnel for help before setting this switch.

PCI Online Maintenance (PCI Hot Plug)

This section describes the Setup Menu operations/procedures required prior to the PCI online maintenance operation. An online maintenance available PCI card requires resources such as PCI Gap, I/O resource, and PCI bus. Prepare those resources correctly with each configuration menu beforehand.

Available PCI Online Maintenance Function

The server supports the following PCI Online Maintenance functions:

!Online Add (Adding PCI card)

Installs an online maintenance available PCI card into a PCI slot that accepts online maintenance without stopping the OS. An online maintenance available PCI card requires resources. The resources must be prepared prior to the online maintenance operation with the Setup Menu.

!Online Remove (Extracting PCI card)

Extracts an online maintenance available PCI card from a PCI slot that accepts online maintenance without stopping the OS. This operation is performed when the PCI card may be defective. Preparing resources is not required.

!Online Replace or online Repair

Extracts an operating online maintenance available PCI card from a PCI slot that accepts online maintenance without stopping the OS. This procedure installs a new online maintenance available PCI card into the PCI slot that accepts online maintenance without stopping the OS. The new card may be the same type as the extracted one, or may be another type. Preparing the resources is not necessary if the new card is the same type, but is necessary if the new card is another type.

Preparing the Resources

Use the following procedures to prepare resources for an online maintenance available PCI card.

1.Select the online maintenance available slot and device.

Select a PCI slot that accepts online maintenance and select an online maintenance available device installed in the slot.

2.Calculate required resource size.

!Confirm the resource size that the online maintenance available devices require.

!If plural online maintenance available PCI devices are installed in the PCI slots under the same PCI bus, the sum of the resources of all PCI devices must be calculated beforehand.

3.Specify the required resources.

!Start up the system and activate BIOS Setup.

!Select “System Hardware” in the Main Menu.

4-60BIOS Setup

!Select “HBB Configuration” in the System Hardware menu.

!Specify resources as follows. Use the resource size calculated in step 2.

PCI Gap:

“Low MMIO Configuration” menu or “High MMIO Configuration” menu specifies PCI Gap (see “Low MMIO Configuration Submenu” and “High MMIO Configuration Submenu.)”

“Low MMIO configuration” menu is used when the PCI Gap is assigned to the address space that is less than 4GB.

“High MMIO Configuration” menu is used when the PCI Gap is assigned to the address space that is larger than 4GB. Use the following procedure to enable the specified values in “High MMIO configuration” menu:

Select “System Hardware.”

Select “Memory Mapped I/O > 4GB” in System Hardware menu.

Select “Enable” in Memory Mapped I/O > 4GB submenu (see “Memory Mapped I/O > 4GB submenu”).

I/O Space:

See “IO Space Configuration Submenu.”

PCI Bus Number:

See “PCI Bus Configuration Submenu.”

If a Reboot Occurs

When procedures are completed in the previous section, “Preparing the Resources,” exit from the Setup menu. Select “Exit Saving Changes” from the Exit menu (see “Exit Menu”).

Reboot the system. A reboot might occur again during the reboot process. Two possible causes for reboot are:

!Expanded PCI Gap was specified in preparing the resources (see “Procedures for Preparing the Resources”).

!The resource values specified in preparing the resources were incorrect (see “Procedures for Preparing the Resources”).

If an expanded PCI Gap was specified:

Reboot. The following BIOS event log is generated: “910A Low MMIO Space Size Updated.”

The second reboot occurred because the PCI Gap (Low MMIO) had expanded. The second reboot is a correct procedure. The system operation can be continued when the reboot procedure is completed.

BIOS Setup 4-61

If a reboot occurred due to incorrect resource values:

The “910E Resource Assignment Failure” BIOS event log is generated.

The system checks whether the sum of the resource size is larger than the total resource size of the system during system initialization. When the sum of the resource size is larger than the total resource size, the BIOS event log is generated and the system reboots again. During the second reboot, the resource size that exceeds total resource size is set to the initial value. The resource size must be specified correctly. Any other resource size specified correctly is maintained.

4-62BIOS Setup

HBB Configuration Submenu Precaution

The Express5800/1080Xd server has the PCIV within the main chassis (core module) and can connect to the optional PCIX Unit. Hardware configuration for the PCIV core module unit is different from the PCIX Unit. The PCIX Unit has a GXB01 but the PCIV does not. The Host Bus Bridge (HBB) Configuration submenu has items that cannot be specified.

When menus under the HBB Configuration submenu are selected, “N/A” is always displayed in the “Location” column of HBB #1 and #2. Also, HBB #2 and #3 items cannot be specified. See the example in the following screen.

Selecting a Slot

Installation can impact the operating frequency of a board. Note the following information before selecting a PCI slot:

Note: See Figure5-2for Core Module slot locations or Figure5-4for PCIX Unit slot locations. These figures slot frequencies and bus groups.

The actual operating frequency of a board is lower than the highest specified operating frequency when the following conditions occur:

!More than two PCI boards are installed in the same bus group (does not apply to PCI-Xboards)

!Boards with different operating frequencies are installed in the same bus group.

PCI 33-MHzis the highest specified operating frequency for the following boards:

!Basic I/O Board

!SCSI Card DAT device in the server chassis.

5-6I/O Board Installation

Installing a Board in the Core Module

Note: Before you install an I/O board, see the previous sections to choose the correct slot location for your board.

! CAUTION

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) and ESD protection. ESD can damage disk drives, boards, and other parts. We recommend that you wear an antistatic wrist strap attached to chassis ground (any unpainted metal surface) on your system 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 system, place itcomponent-sideup on a grounded,static-freesurface. Use a conductive foam pad if available but not the board wrapper. Do not slide board over any surface.

Access covers, proper cooling and airflow. For proper cooling and airflow, always install access covers before turning on the system. Operating it without the covers in place can damage system parts.

Note: I/O boards arehot-pluggable.Installation does not require shutting down the system.

1.Check that the front stabilizer is in the pulled-outposition. If not, remove the screw securing the stabilizer and pull it out (see Figure5-5):

2.Pull open the Main Chassis door from the right edge (see Figure 5-5).
