Storage options

The Power E1050 supports up to ten NVMe 7-milimeter or 15-milimeter drives:

  • Six NVMe drives within two or three-socket configuration
  • Ten NVMe drives within a four-socket configuration

All NVMe drives are driven directly from the system backplane with no PCIe card or cables required.

The 7-millimeter NVMe drives from the IBM Power E950 are also supported on the Power E1050 with a carrier conversion feature that is offered to hold these drives.

Power Private Cloud Solution with Dynamic Capacity

The Power Private Cloud Solution with Dynamic Capacity is an infrastructure offering that enables you to take advantage of cloud agility and economics while getting the same business continuity and flexibility that you already enjoy from Power servers. The Power Private Cloud Solution offers:

  • Cost optimization with pay-for-use pricing
  • Automated and consistent IT management with Red Hat Ansible® for Power
  • IBM Proactive Support for Power services
  • IBM Systems Lab Services Assessment and implementation assistance

Both Elastic and Shared Utility Capacity options are now available on all Power E1050 systems through the Virtual Capacity (4586-COD) MTM and the ESS website.

Elastic Capacity on the Power E1050 system enables you to deploy pay-for-use consumption of processor, memory, and supported operating systems, by the day, across a collection of Power E1050 and Power E950 systems.

Shared Utility Capacity on Power E1050 systems provides enhanced multisystem resource sharing and by-the-minute tracking and consumption of compute resources across a collection of systems within a Power Enterprise Pools (2.0). It delivers a complete range of flexibility to tailor initial system configurations with the right mix of purchased and pay-for-use consumption of processor, memory, and software. Clients with existing Power Enterprise Pools of Power E950 systems can simply add Power E1050 systems into their pool and migrate to them at the rate and pace of their choosing, as any Power E950 and Power E1050 server may seamlessly interoperate and share compute resources within the same pool.

A Power Private Cloud Solution infrastructure consolidated onto Power E1050 systems has the potential to greatly simplify system management so IT teams can focus on optimizing their business results instead of moving resources around within their data center.

Shared Utility Capacity resources are easily tracked by virtual machine (VM) and monitored by a CMC, which integrates with local HMCs to manage the pool and track resource use by system and VM, by the minute, across a pool.

You no longer need to worry about overprovisioning capacity on each system to support growth, as all available processor and memory on all systems in a pool are activated and available for use.

Base Capacity for processor, memory, and supported operating system entitlement resources is purchased on each Power E950 and Power E1050 system and is then aggregated across a defined pool of systems for consumption monitoring.

Metered Capacity is the additional installed processor and memory resource above each system's Base Capacity. It is activated and made available for immediate use when a pool is started, then monitored by the minute by a CMC.

Metered resource usage is charged only for minutes exceeding the pool's aggregate Base resources, and usage charges are debited in real-time against your purchased Capacity Credits (5819-CRD) on account.

IBM offers a Private Cloud Capacity Assessment and Implementation Service performed by Systems Lab Services professionals, which can be preselected at time of purchase or requested for qualifying Power E1050 servers.

I/O support

PCIe slots

The Power E1050 server has up to eight PCIe Gen5 and three PCIe Gen4 general purpose hot-plug slots, providing configuration flexibility and expandability. Six adapter slots are x16 Gen5/4, two adapter slots are x8 Gen5, and three adapter slots are x8 Gen4 . All adapter slots are full height, half length.

The number of slots supported vary by the number of processor modules.

Processor modules 2 socket 3/4 socket
x16 Gen4 or x8 Gen5 slots 2 6
x8 Gen4 slots 3 3
x8 Gen5 slots 2 2

Notes:

  • The PCIe Genx8 slot, C1, is reserved for an Ethernet adapter to help ensure proper manufacture and test of the server.
  • Blind-swap cassettes (BSC) are used for adapters in the system unit.
  • All PCIe slots in the system unit are single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) capable.
  • Each NVMe SSD interface is a Gen4 x4 PCIe bus. The NVMe drives can be in an OS-controlled RAID0, RAID1 array. Hardware RAID is not supported on the NVMe drives.

The x16 slots can provide up to twice the bandwidth of x8 slots because they offer twice as many PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen5 slots can support up to twice the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen4 slot and up to four times the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen3 slot, assuming an equivalent number of PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen1, PCIe Gen2, PCIe Gen3, PCIe Gen4, and PCIe Gen5 adapters can be plugged into a PCIe Gen5 slot, if that adapter is supported. The x16 slots and selective x8 slots can be used to attach PCIe Gen3 I/O expansion drawers.

This server is smarter than earlier servers about energy efficiency for cooling the PCIe adapter environment. They can sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots. If an adapter is known to require higher levels of cooling, they automatically speed up fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters.

USB DVD external and boot devices

The Power E1050 provides two front USB ports, mainly to support the external USB DVD.

System boot is supported through these options:

  1. NVMe drives
  2. A SAN attached to FC or FCoE adapters and indicated to the server by the 0837 specify code
  3. USB front port for external USB-based DVD
  4. USB front port for USB memory key/flash drive

Assuming option 1 above, the minimum system configuration requires at least one NVMe disk drive in the system for AIX and Linux.

I/O drawer attachment

Clients migrating from earlier-generation servers may have been using I/O drawers such as the GX++ attached feature 5802 or feature 5877 PCIe 12X I/O drawers with PCIe Gen1 slots. Though most PCIe adapters in the feature 5802 or feature 5877 drawers can be moved to this server and its disk drives converted and moved to the feature ESLS EXP24SX drawer, the feature 5802 and feature 5877 drawers are not supported on this newer Power technology-based server. Similarly, the GX++ attached EXP30 Ultra SSD Drawer (#EDR1 or #5888) is not supported.

Up to 64 EXP24SX storage drawers can be attached to a Power E1050 server. With 24 drives per drawer, this means up to 1,536 SFF-2 drives are supported. A maximum of 16 EXP24SX per PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer is supported due to cable management considerations.

The older 3.5-inch-based EXP12S SAS Disk Drawer (#5886) and EXP24 SCSI Disk Drawer (#5786) are not supported.

IBM offers a 1U multimedia drawer that can hold one or more DVDs, tape drive, or RDX docking stations. The 7226-1U3 is the most current offering. The earlier 7216-1U2 and 7214-1U2 are also supported. Up to six of these multimedia drawers can be attached.

PCIe I/O expansion drawer

PCIe I/O Expansion Drawers (#EMX0) can be attached to the system unit to expand the number of full-high, hot-swap slots available to the server. The maximum number of PCIe I/O drawers depends on the number of processor modules physically installed. The maximum is independent of the number of processor core activations.

  • Up to two PCIe drawers with two processor modules.
  • Up to three PCIe drawers with three processor modules.
  • Up to four PCIe drawers with four processor modules.
  • The 19-inch 4 EIA (4U) PCIe I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) and two PCIe fanout modules (#EMXH) provide 12 PCIe I/O full-length, full-height slots. One fanout module provides six PCIe slots labeled C1 through C6. Slots C1 and C4 are x16 slots, and C2, C3®, C5, and C6 are x8 slots. All six slots in a PCIe3 6-slot fanout module are SR-IOV enabled. The feature EC2S and feature EC2U adapters are supported in slots C1 through C6, but only four feature EC2S and feature EC2U adapters can be in SR-IOV shared mode at a time.
  • An EMX0 drawer can be configured with one or two EMXH fanout modules. Adding a second fanout module is not a hot-plug operation and requires scheduled downtime.
  • PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 full-high adapter cards are supported. The set of full-high PCIe adapters that are supported is found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number. See the PCI Adapter Placement manual for the Power E1050 for details and rules associated with specific adapters supported and their supported placement in x8 or x16 slots.
  • Each fanout module requires one PCIe Cable Adapter (#EJ2A), which is placed in a x16 PCIe slot and selective x8 slots of the system unit.
  • A cable pair attaches the PCIe Cable Adapter (#EJ2A) to the fanout module. Feature ECC7 provides a pair of 3-meter optical cables with transceivers. Feature ECC8 provides a pair of 10-meter optical cables with transceivers. Feature ECCS provides a pair of 3-meter copper cables. Two cables of identical length, or one feature, is required for each fanout module. Optical cables are smaller diameter and more flexible and can be longer than the copper cables. Copper cables are lower cost. Copper and optical cables have the same performance and reliability characteristics.
  • The cable adapter (#EJ2A) can be placed in any of the system units' available x16 slots and selective x8 slot and attached to any fanout module in any of the server's PCIe I/O drawers (#EMX0). The PCIe I/O drawer cannot be shared by two different servers.
  • Recommendation: Locate any attached PCIe I/O expansion drawer in the same rack as the Power10 server for ease of service. However, the drawers can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it. It is recommended to use 3-meter cables for PCIe drawers in the same rack as the system unit and 10-meter cables for drawers located in a different rack.
  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • When the operating system is Linux, PowerVM® is required for support of the I/O expansion drawer.

Rack cable brackets

The cable bracket is used to secure the communications cables so that they can be raised to remove the blind swap cassettes containing the PCIe adapters. To enable the server to be pulled forward on its rails for service access to memory, processors and voltage regulator modules requires the disconnecting the cables from the server.

Integrated I/O ports

E1050 integrated IO consists of four Operating System (OS) USB 3.0 port and those of the service processor eBMC. Two of the four OS USB 3.0 ports are at the front and 2 are at the rear physically on the eBMC card tailstock. The front OS USB 3.0 ports have higher current capacity than the two rear USB 3.0. The front USB 3.0 ports are typically used for the external DVD drive and for other general USB devices such as USB key. The two rear USB 3.0 are typical used for general USB devices such as USB key. Do not use the rear USB 3.0 port for external DVD drive.

The eBMC integrated IO consists of two Ethernet RJ45 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. All these ports are at the eBMC card tailstock, together with 2 OS USB 3.0 ports.

The two eBMC Ethernet are typically used for HMC connection, one for the primary HMC and the other could be used for an HMC secondary.

When HMC is not used, one of the Ethernet ports is typically connected to a network so that eBMC interface can be used to control and manage the system by means of the GUI, Redfish interface or command line .

The eBMC two USB2.0 can be used for USB key to update eBMC code or for Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) control cable. For UPS application, a converter cable, feature code ECCF, provides a USB-to-9-pin, D-shell connection to some UPS. The IBM 9910 Uninterruptible Power System, models E66 and E67, are supported as purchase options with the Power E1050 server.

Racks

The Power E1050 server is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system for the following rack support:

  • 7965-S42 (42U): field integration only
  • 7014-T42 (42U): supported only

Clients can choose to place the server in other racks if they are confident those racks have the strength, rigidity, depth, and hole-pattern characteristics that are needed. Clients should work with IBM Service to determine the appropriateness of other racks. The Power E1050 rails can adjust their depth to fit a rack that is 22.75 inches--30.5 inches in depth based on the adjustable outer brackets going from the front rail to the rear rail.

IBM Manufacturing does not support the use of other racks with the Power E1050 initial system order or model upgrade. The 7965-S42 (#ECR0) or 7014-T42 (#0553) are 2-meter enterprise racks that provide 42U or 42 EIA of space.

Additional Power E1050 PCIe I/O Drawers (#EMX0) for an already-installed server can be MES ordered with or without a rack.

Typical good cable management practices apply. For example, it is usually a good practice to leave 1U or 2U open at the top or bottom of the rack for cables exiting the rack or to hold extra cable lengths. Or if you have more than four PCIe I/O drawers in the same rack, carefully consider how many four-port PCIe adapters have cables attached to all their ports. If you are not using something like the 8-inch extension for a 7965-S42 rack for extra space to lay the cables, service access can be a challenge, especially with thicker I/O cables. Or another example, if there are a lot of I/O cables in the rack, horizontally mounting the power distribution units (PDUs) versus mounting them vertically in the side pockets eases service access.

Rack front door options supported are the acoustic door (#6248 or #6249), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7), and the cost-effective plain front door (#6068 or #6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6263 or #6272).

PDUs

Using previously provided IBM PDU features 7188, 7109, and 7196 reduces the number of Power E1050 servers and other equipment that can be held most efficiently in a rack. The high-function PDUs provide more electrical power per PDU and thus offer better PDU footprint efficiency. In addition, they are intelligent PDUs that provide insight to actual power usage by receptacle and also provide remote power on/off capability for easier support by individual receptacle. The new PDUs are features ECJJ, ECJL, ECJN, and ECJQ.

IBM Manufacturing will only integrate the newer PDUs with the Power E1050 server. IBM Manufacturing does not support integrating earlier PDUs, such as the feature 7188, 7109, or 7196. You can choose to use older IBM PDUs in your racks, but you will have to install those earlier PDUs at your site.

Lifting considerations

Three to four service personnel are required to manually remove or insert a system unit into a rack, given its dimensions, weight, and content. To avoid the need for this many people to assemble at your site for a service action, a lift tool can be very useful. If you have chosen to install this customer setup (CSU) system, similar lifting considerations apply.

The Power E1050 server has a maximum weight of 69 kilograms (153 pounds). However, by temporarily removing the power supplies, fans, and RAID assembly, the weight is easily reduced to a maximum of 55 kilograms (121 pounds).

When lowering the Power E1050 server onto its rails in the rack, the server must be tilted on one end about 15 degrees so that the pins on the server enclosure fit onto the rails. This equates to lifting one end of the server about 4 centimeters (1.6 inches). This can be done using a tip plate on a lift tool or manually adjusting the load on a lift tool or tilting during the manual lift. Consider the optional feature EB2Z lift tool.

PowerVM Enterprise Edition License Entitlement is now included with each Power E1050 server.

PowerVM Enterprise Edition is available as a hardware feature (#EPVV) and supports up to 20 partitions per core, VIOS, and multiple shared processor pools. It also offers LPM, Active Memory Sharing, and PowerVP performance monitoring.

Other PowerVM technologies include:

  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying IBM Power LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • VIOS is a single-function appliance that resides in a Power partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between AIX, Linux, and client partitions within the server. VIOS provides shared Ethernet adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.
  • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (FC) and storage devices (disk and optical) between logical partitions.
  • With virtual networking, a SEA enables connectivity between internal and external virtual LANs (VLANs); virtual Ethernet provides high-speed connections between partitions.

With LPM, you can move a running AIX or Linux VM from one physical server to another with no downtime. You can use this capability to:

  • Evacuate workloads from a system before performing scheduled maintenance.
  • Move workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift.
  • Move workloads away from underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs.
  • Move your workloads to new Power10 systems for upgrades without having to schedule an outage. With Active Memory Sharing, memory is dynamically moved between running partitions for optimal resource usage.

Active Memory Expansion

AME is an innovative technology supporting the AIX operating system that helps enable the effective maximum memory capacity to be larger than the true physical memory maximum. Compression or decompression of memory content can enable memory expansion up to 100% or more. This can enable a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can enable a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

AME uses CPU resource to compress or decompress the memory contents. The trade-off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies on how compressible the memory content is. It also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression or decompression.

Power10 chips include a hardware accelerator designed to boost AME efficiency and use less Power core resource. The Power10 accelerator includes some minor enhancements and also leverages Power10 higher bandwidth and lower latency characteristics.

You have a great deal of control over AME usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off AME. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the AME function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning on memory expansion. When turned on, monitoring capabilities are available in standard AIX performance tools, such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX, enabling you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any Power model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of AME is available to enable more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. You can request the trial using the Power Capacity on Demand website.

AME is enabled by chargeable hardware feature EMAM, which can be ordered with the initial order of the system node or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the system node. An IPL is not required to enable the system node. The key is specific to an individual system node and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running AME. Normal licensing requirements apply.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest level of product quality.

The Power10 processor-based E1050 system comes with the following RAS characteristics:

  • Power10 processor RAS
  • Open Memory Interface, differential DIMMs RAS
  • Enterprise BMC service processor for system management and service
  • Active Memory Mirroring for Hypervisor
  • NVMe drives concurrent maintenance
  • PCIe adapters concurrent maintenance
  • Redundant and hot-plug cooling
  • Redundant and hot-plug power
  • Redundant voltage regulators
  • Time-of-day battery concurrent maintenance
  • Lightpath enclosure and FRU LEDs
  • Service and FRU labels
  • Client or IBM install
  • Proactive support and service -- call home
  • Client or IBM service

Service processor

The Power10 processor-based E1050 system comes with a redesigned service processor based on a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) design with firmware that is accessible through open-source industry standard APIs, such as Redfish. An upgraded ASMI web browser user interface preserves the required RAS functions while allowing the user to perform tasks in a more intuitive way.

Diagnostic monitoring of recoverable error from the processor chipset is performed on the system processor itself, while the fatal diagnostic monitoring of the processor chipset is performed by the service processor. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

The service processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The BMC service processors menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently during system operation, allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters, view and download error logs, check system health.

Redfish, an industry standard for server management, enables the Power servers to be managed individually or in a large data center. Standard functions such as inventory, event logs, sensors, dumps, and certificate management are all supported with Redfish. In addition, new user management features support multiple users and privileges on the BMC via Redfish or ASMI. User management via LDAP is also supported. The Redfish events service provides a means for notification of specific critical events such that actions can be taken to correct issues. The Redfish telemetry service provides access to a wide variety of data (eg. power consumption, ambient, core, DIMM and I/O temperatures, etc) that can be streamed on periodic intervals.

Mutual surveillance

The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and reports a service reference code when it detects surveillance loss. In the PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions

The Power family does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting. It also adjusts fan speeds automatically based on those temperatures.

Memory subsystem RAS:

The Power10 processor-based E1050 system introduces a new 4U tall differential DIMM (DDIMM), which has new open CAPI memory interface known as OMI for resilient and fast communication to the processor. This new memory subsystem design delivers solid RAS as described below.

  • Memory Buffer: The DDIMM contains a memory buffer with key RAS features, including protection of critical data/address flows using CRC, ECC, and parity, a maintenance engine for background memory scrubbing and memory diagnostics, and a Fault Isolation Register (FIR) structure, which enables firmware attention-based fault isolation and diagnostics.
  • OMI (Open Memory Interface): The OMI interface between the memory buffer and processor memory controller is protected by dynamic lane calibration, as well as a CRC retry/recovery facility to retransmit lost frames to survive intermittent bit flips. A complete lane fail can also be survived by triggering a dynamic lane reduction from 8 to 4, independently for both up and downstream directions. A key advantage of the OMI interface is that it simplifies the number of critical signals that must cross connectors from processor to memory compared to a typical industry-standard DIMM design.
  • Memory ECC: The DDIMM includes a robust 64-byte Memory ECC, with 8-bit symbols, capable of correcting up to five symbol errors (one x4 chip and one additional symbol), as well as retry for data and address uncorrectable errors.
  • Dynamic row repair: To further extend the life of the DDIMM, the dynamic row repair feature can restore full use of a DRAM for a fault contained to a DRAM row, while system continues to operate.
  • Spare temperature sensors: Each DDIMM provides spare temperature sensors, such that the failure of one does not require a DDIMM replacement.
  • Spare DRAMs: 4U DDIMMs include two spare x4 memory modules (DRAMs) per rank. These can be substituted for failed DRAMs during runtime operation. Combined with ECC correction, the 2 spares allow the 4U DDIMM to continue to function with 3 bad DRAMs per rank, compared to 1 (single device data correct) or 2 (double device data correct) bad DRAMs in a typical industry standard DIMM design. This extends self-healing capabilities beyond what is provided with dynamic row repair capability.
  • Spare power management integrated circuits (PMICs): 4U DDIMMs include PMICs such that the failure of one PMIC does not require a DDIMM replacement .

Power10 processor functions

As in Power9, the Power10 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors and core-contained checkstop for certain solid faults. The fabric bus design with CRC and retry persists in Power10 where a CRC code is used for checking data on the bus and has an ability to retry a faulty operation.

Cache availability

The L2/L3 caches in the Power10 processor in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, a threshold of correctable errors detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further operation without requiring a reboot in the PowerVM environment.

Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling prevents an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a check stop. When and if data is used, I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device, otherwise, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or if the data is not owned by the hypervisor.

PCI extended error handling

PCI extended error handling (EEH)-enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can automatically restart following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (AC power) failure.

Serviceability

The purpose of serviceability is to efficiently repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate impact to system operation. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the client, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system help provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes:

  • Design for SSR setup, install, and service
  • Error Detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI)
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC)
  • Light path service indicators
  • Service and FRU labels available on the system
  • Service procedures documented in IBM Documentation or available through the HMC
  • Automatic reporting of serviceable events to IBM through the Electronic Service Agent Call Home application

Service environment

In the PowerVM environment, the HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI) or REST API. An HMC attached to the system enables support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely, or locally to the physical HMC that is in proximity of the server being serviced, log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The Power10 processor-based systems support several service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs or vHMCs is a supported option by the system with PowerVM. This is the default configuration for servers supporting logical partitions with dedicated or virtual I/O. In this case, all servers have at least one logical partition.
  • No HMC. There are two service strategies for non-HMC systems.
    • Full-system partition with PowerVM: A single partition owns all the server resources and only one operating system may be installed. The primary service interface is through the operating system and the service processor.
    • Partitioned system with NovaLink: In this configuration, the system can have more than one partition and can be running more than one operating system. The primary service interface is through the service processor.

Service interface

Support personnel can use the service interface to communicate with the service support applications in a server using an operator console, a graphical user interface on the management console or service processor, or an operating system terminal. The service interface helps to deliver a clear, concise view of available service applications, helping the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available through the service interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system, hypervisor, and operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • LEDs
  • Operator panel
  • BMC Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC or vHMC with PowerVM

In the light path LED implementation, the system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs and can also guide the servicer directly to the component by signaling (turning on solid) the enclosure fault LED, and component FRU fault LED. The servicer can also use the identify function to blink the FRU-level LED. When this function is activated, a roll-up to the blue enclosure identify will occur to identify an enclosure in a rack. These enclosure LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the light path from the enclosure and down to the specific FRU in the PowerVM environment.

First Failure Data Capture and error data analysis

First Failure Data Capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extending tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention.

FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems so they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code with PowerVM, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.
  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.
  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's backend system.

Automatic diagnostics

The processor and memory FFDC technology is designed to perform without the need for recreate diagnostics nor require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boot-time diagnostics fall into this category.

Standalone diagnostics

As the name implies, standalone or user-initiated diagnostics requires user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Booting from the diagnostics CD, DVD, USB, or network
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file that is released with the firmware. An HMC is required for the concurrent firmware update with PowerVM. In addition, concurrent maintenance of PCIe adapters and NVMe drives are supported with PowerVM. Power supplies, fans are hot pluggable.

Service labels

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

  • Location diagrams: Location diagrams are located on the system hardware, relating information regarding the placement of hardware components. Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components such as DIMMs, processors, fans, adapter cards, and power supplies are installed.
  • Remove/replace procedures: Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams detailing how to remove or replace certain serviceable hardware components.
  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and the serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and in a certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

QR labels

QR labels are placed on the system to provide access to key service functions through a mobile device. When the QR label is scanned, it will go to a landing page for Power10 processor-based systems that contains each MTM service functions of interest while physically located at the server. These include things such as installation and repair instructions, reference code look up, and so on.

Packaging for service

The following service features are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Blue-colored touch points delineate touchpoints on service components where the component can be safely handled for service actions such as removal or installation.
  • Tool-less design: Selected IBM systems support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.
  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumbscrews, pop Nylatches (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

Error handling and reporting

In the event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, or if the system continues to operate, the error will be reported to the operating system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log filesystem. When an HMC is attached in the PowerVM environment, an ELA routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The service processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator.

The system has the ability to call home through the operating system to report platform-recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices.

In the HMC-managed environment, a call home service request will be initiated from the HMC and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM service organization. Customer contact information and specific system- related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with error log data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service.

Live Partition Mobility

With PowerVM Live Partition Mobility (LPM), users can migrate an AIX, IBM I, or Linux VM partition running on one Power partition system to another Power system without disrupting services. The migration transfers the entire system environment, including processor state, memory, attached virtual devices, and connected users. It provides continuous operating system and application availability during planned partition outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults. The Power10 systems, using Power10 technology, support secure LPM, whereby the VM image is encrypted and compressed prior to transfer. Secure LPM uses on-chip encryption and compression capabilities of the Power10 processor for optimal performance.

Call home

Call home refers to an automatic or manual call from a client location to the IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call home can be done through the Electronic Service Agent (ESA) imbedded in the HMC or through a version of ESA imbedded in the operating systems for non-HMC-managed or A version of ESA that runs as a standalone call home application. While configuring call home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the call home feature can result in increased system availability. See the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronic Services

Electronic Service Agent and Client Support Portal (CSP) comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution, which is dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM clients. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors and collects hardware and software inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the client's company business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. In addition, Call Home Connect Cloud web and mobile capability extends the common solution and offers IBM Systems- related support information applicable to servers and storage.

Details are available here: https://clientvantage.ibm.com/channel/ibm-call-home-connect.

System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be used to improve problem determination and resolution between the client and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM clients, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, see the "Security" section at the IBM Electronic Service Agent.

Benefits: increased uptime

Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by potentially providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24x7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours client personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to help secure the monitoring, reporting, and storing of the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to help securely transmit through the internet (HTTPS) to provide clients a single point of exit from their site. Initiation of communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a client's system.

For additional information, see the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.

More accurate reporting

Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, clients are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system, and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Client Support Portal

Client Support Portal is a single internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

This web portal provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the client's IBM ID.

For more information on how to utilize client support portal, visit the following website or contact an IBM Systems Services Representative:

    The Power E1050 server must be installed in a rack with a rear door and side panels for EMC compliance. The native HMC Ethernet ports must use shielded Ethernet cables.

    Note: Government regulations, such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives, may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. This IBM system is available with an optional acoustical door feature that can help reduce the noise emitted from this system. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room where you designate the racks to be installed; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

キーボード、マウス、スピーカー、メモリー、ハード・ディスク・ドライブなどの CRU を使用して問題を解決できる場合、およびお客様の地域で提供されている保守サービス・オファリングによっては IBM は、お客様が導入できるように交換用 CRU を出荷します。CRU についての情報および交換手順は、ご使用の機械に付属しているか、またはIBM Webサイトに掲載されています。また、ご要望により IBM から入手いただけます。

CRUは在庫状況に応じて発送いたします。 IBM は、取り外した (故障した) CRU を IBM に返却する必要があるかどうかを交換用 CRU に同梱される資料に指定するものとします。返却が必要な場合は、1) 返却の指示および返送用梱包材が交換用 CRU と一緒に出荷され、2) お客様が、故障した CRU を交換用 CRU の受領から 15 日以内に返却しない場合、 IBM は交換用 CRU の代金を請求させていただくことがあります。

CRU は機械の標準保守サービスの一部として提供されます。ただし、お客様はご自身で導入するか、上記に指定されたオンサイト・サービス・レベルに基づき、追加料金なしで IBM に導入を要求することができます。
