IBM PowerVM delivers advanced virtualization technologies. With PowerVM Standard Edition, the Power 550 server can support up to 10 partitions per core, supporting multiple IBM i, AIX, and Linux operating environments on a single system. The Power 550 can also support multiple shared processor pools, enabling the capping of processor resources on a group of partitions. Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) offers storage and Ethernet virtualization for IBM i, AIX, and Linux partitions. In addition, with PowerVM Lx86, you can run 32-bit Linux on x86 applications in Linux environments on the Power 550. IBM PowerVM is a chargeable product.

Express editions

Express editions enable initial ease of ordering and offer a lower price than if you ordered "a la carte" or build-to-order. Unlike earlier System i editions on POWER4 and POWER5 systems, an edition feature is not required for the Power 550. The only way to use the no-charge features for processor activations is to take advantage of these editions. The Express editions are available only during the initial system order. They cannot be ordered after your system is shipped.

The IBM configurator offers these easy-to-order Express editions that include no-charge activations. You can modify the Express Edition configurations to match the exact requirements for your initial shipment -- increasing or decreasing the configuration. If you create a configuration that falls below any of the defined minimums, the IBM configurator replaces the no-charge features with regular charge features with equivalent function.

Power 550 Capacity BackUp (CBU) capability

The Power 550 systems' CBU designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred.

The CBU specify feature #0444 is available only as part of a new server purchase or during an MES upgrade from an existing CBU system to a 9409-M50. Certain system prerequisites must be met and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server. #0444 cannot be added to a Solution Edition feature #7046 or #7048.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 OLTP (Enterprise Enablement) entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine they were ordered for. When you register the association between your primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer.

After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system when the primary system is down or while the primary system processors are inactive. The CBU system can then better support failover and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system and may remain in use on the CBU system as long as the registered primary and CBU system are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

The primary system for a Power 550 server can be:

  • 9117-MMA
  • 9406-MMA
  • 9406-570
  • 9409-M50
  • 9406-550

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P20 or P30 software tier. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor license on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor license on the CBU server. An activated processor must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You can then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the mimimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement you would like to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor license entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. These warning messages in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You can then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement.

For example, if you have a four-core Power 550 as your primary system with two IBM i processor license entitlements (one above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer only one IBM i entitlement and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired.

Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD)

CUoD enables you to turn on capacity as your needs grow. You can permanently activate inactive processors by ordering one or more #4986 activation features for your 4.2 GHz Power 550. After IBM receives your order, an activation code unique to your server is generated. The activation code is mailed to you and also posted at:

http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod

Enter the activation code into your server using the hardware management console or the advanced system manager interface, and your newly activated processors are ready to be dynamically allocated when needed.

Adequate operating system processor licenses (IBM i, AIX, or Linux) must be available for all permanently activated processors that have been assigned to a partition or pool.

Detailed information, including step-by-step directions for ordering, enabling, and using CUoD, is available in the Capacity on Demand Planning Guide found at:

http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod

Upgrades

MES upgrades to the Power 550 from the POWER5 9406-550 are available. They preserve the existing machine serial number. IBM i processor, 5250 Enterprise Enablements, and processor activation investments are protected during the upgrade. Upgrade paths preserving the serial number into the Power 550 (9409-M50) are not available from the 9406-520 or 9406-525. Upgrade paths out of the Power 550 into the 9406 model 570 or 595 preserving the serial number are not available.

If you are upgrading from a 9406-550 CBU Edition, and assuming the primary system has not changed from the originally registered primary/secondary pairing, the CBU specify code is added to an MES upgrade. This avoids unnecessary registration on the CBU Web site.

Continuance of warranty service level

If you are upgrading to a 9409-M50 from a 9406-550 system that is still under warranty, you will continue to have the warranty service level of the 9406 for the remainder of the 9406 one-year warranty period. Because the 9409 has 9 x 5 next-business-day base warranty coverage as opposed to the 9406 24 x 7 same-day base warranty coverage, you must sign a separate warranty service upgrade contract to continue 24 x 7 same-day base warranty coverage. Contact your IBM representative or Business Partner for more details.

Memory considerations

Eight DDR2 memory DIMM slots with error checking and correcting (ECC) are used in each Power 550 4.2 GHz processor card. Memory DIMMs are plugged in pairs (one memory feature equals two DIMMs). At least one pair of memory DIMMs (one memory feature) is required on each processor card. Memory features of different sizes can be used on the same system but cannot be mixed in the same processor card. For example, if one 4 GB memory feature is initially installed on a processor card, the only future memory additions supported on that card are additional 4 GB memory features, assuming the first 4 GB memory feature is not removed.

                                 Maximum GB
Memory     Memory                processor
GB         feature   # DIMMs     card         MHz
--------   -------   ---------   ----------   ---
1GB        #4520     2 x 512MB   4GB          667
2GB        #4521     2 x 1GB     8GB          667
4GB        #4522     2 x 2GB     16GB         667
8GB        #4523     2 x 4GB     32GB         667
16GB       #4524     2 x 8GB     64GB         400
 

You can install up to 128 GB of memory in a four-core Power 550. One, two, or four pairs of DIMMs (memory features) can be installed on each processor card. Using three pairs of DIMMs (3 memory features) is not supported.

PCI slots/GX+ slot

The system unit contains five hot-swap PCI slots:

  • Slots 1 and 2 are PCIe x8 2.5 GHz short-length slots.
  • Slot 3 is a PCIe x8 2.5 GHz full-length slot.
  • Slots 4 and 5 are PCI-X DDR 266 MHz full-length slots.

None of these slots supports an IOP or IOP-based IOA.

The two-core Power 550 has two GX+ slots that share space with PCIe slot 1 and slot 2. If a GX+ adapter is inserted to attach an HSL/RIO or 12X loop, the associated space of the PCIe slot card cannot hold a PCIe adapter. Therefore, if two loops are attached, three PCI slots are available in the system unit.

You can add more PCI slots to the Power 550 system using HSL/RIO-attached I/O towers/drawers or 12X-attached I/O drawers.

SAS tape drives

The Power 550 now offers you the choice of three SAS tape drives that can be placed in the half-high tape slot in the system unit. The newest SAS tape drive is the #5619 80/160 GB DAT160 SAS tape drive. It joins the lower-capacity #5907 36/72 GB DAT72 SAS tape drive and the higher- capacity #5746 800 GB LTO-4 SAS tape drive to provide a wider range of options.

The #5912 PCI-X DDR dual-connector x4 SAS adapter enables attachment to SAS tape drives and SAS disk drives. As an SAS tape controller, the #5912 supports the attachment of external 36/72 GB DAT72, 80/160GB DAT160, and 800/1600GB LTO-4 SAS tape drives. These tape drives are in the following tape units: 7214-1U2, TS2240, TS2340, TS3100, TS3200, and TS3310. Other removable media devices supported include DVD-ROM and DVD-RAM drives. SAS adapter-to-enclosure (AE) cables are used to attach removable media drives.

SAS disk and SAS disk controller

Six 3.5-inch 15k rpm SAS disk drive bays or disk slots are in the system unit, allowing up to 1.7 TB of IBM i disk storage. SAS disk drives formatted for IBM i are supported in three capacities: 69.7, 139.5, or 283.7 GB. AIX, Linux, or VIOS-formatted SAS drives are also supported in 73.4, 146.6, or 300 GB capacities.

The six disk bays are run by the imbedded SAS disk controller. Because the controller is "owned" by one partition, the owning partition needs to virtualize storage controlled by the imbedded controller to any secondary partition that needs disk storage from these disks.

Many client environments can improve disk performance of the six SAS drives by using the optional #5679 175 MB write cache. This card has a special slot in the Power 550 and does not require a PCI slot. The 175 MB write cache is protected by a 175 MB auxiliary write cache to help avoid single points of failure that would cause extended outages. The auxiliary write cache comes with #5679 and does not require a PCI slot.

With the #5679 175 MB write cache feature, RAID 5 or RAID 6 disk protection can be implemented for the six drive slots in the system unit. The Power 550 can also use the imbedded disk controller with #5679 write cache for driving up to 12 disk slots in a #5886 EXP 12S. Mirroring protection is available through the operating system. RAID 5 requires a minimum of three drives and RAID 6 requires four.

The same imbedded controller that runs the disk drives also runs the SAS tape slot and the slimline DVD drive in the system unit. The #5679 write cache is not used in tape or DVD operations.

For a supported Power 550 configuration, disk drives must be protected by either mirroring or RAID.

#5886 EXP 12S

The #5886 EXP 12S is a 2U (2 EIA) SAS disk drawer in a 19-inch rack. It is attached to a SAS port on the back of the Power 550 system unit via an external SAS cable (#3686 or #3687). It supports up to 12 hot-swap SAS disk drives (#3676/3677/3678 or #3646/3647/3648) and includes redundant power supplies. Its disk controller is the imbedded disk controller in the Power 550 system unit. The #5679 175 MB write cache is a prerequisite to attaching #5886.

Power 550 I/O loop, drawer, and tower options

The Power 550 system can optionally support two GX+ adapters, enabling you to choose any combination of HSL/RIO loops (#5614) or 12X loops (#5616).

  • 12X loop can attach up to four #5796 12X I/O enclosures; 12X loop uses 12X cables.
  • HSL/RIO loop can attach up to six HSL/RIO I/O enclosures; HSL/RIO loop uses HSL/RIO cables.

The 12X I/O enclosure is the #5796 12X PCI-DDR expansion drawer that contains six full-length PCI-X DDR high-speed slots in a space-efficient package. Because each #5796 takes only half the 19-inch rack width, two #5796 features require only 4U or 4 EIA of 19-inch rack space. Up to two #5796 features can be placed in a #7314 dual 5796 unit enclosure.

Each #5796 takes one of four possible positions per 12X loop. The #5796 attaches to the 12X loop using one of two #5796 12X adapters, one for shorter distances and one for longer distances. You can use the short run adapter #6446 with 12X loops on which all units are contained in the same rack. Use the long run adapter #6457 for units spread across multiple racks. Short run and long run adapters can be mixed on the same loop.

In the following table, Yes indicates that the 12X cable identified in that column can be used to connect the configuration identified to the left.

Note: (1) The 0.6 m 12X cable (#1829) cannot be used to connect to a processor enclosure because of its short length. It is intended for use between two #5796 drawers mounted side-by-side in the same #7314 enclosure or to connect between two #5796 drawers located one beneath the other in a rack.
Note: (2) It is possible in some limited configurations to use the 3.0 M 12X cable (#1840) to locate #5796 drawers in adjacent racks. The cable length requires careful management of each drawer location within the rack. The best choice for connecting a #5796 drawer in an adjacent rack is the 8.0 M 12X cable (#1834).
Note: (3) The 12X cable (#1834) is intended for use when connecting between two modules that are located in adjacent racks. This cable may not be connected to the 12X Short Run adapter (#6446).

The #5796 supports only smart IOAs and does not support an IOP or a card that requires an IOP. The #5796 includes redundant concurrently maintainable power and cooling. The blind swap PCI mechanism allows for PCI card servicing without removing the I/O expansion drawer.

HSL/RIO

The Power 550 system supports HSL I/O enclosures that allow for PCI-X slots and, in some cases, disk slots. These enclosures were previously available on POWER5 systems. The PCI slots are PCI-X slots that support IOPs, not PCI-X DDR slots. These enclosures are:

  • #0595/5095 (7 PCI-X slots and 12 SCSI disk slots)
  • #5094/5294 (14 PCI-X slots and 15 to 45 SCSI disk slots)
  • #5096/5296 (14 PCI-X slots and 0 disk slots)
  • #0588/5088 (14 PCI-X slots and 0 disk slots)
  • #5790 (6 PCI-X slots and 0 disk slots)

The #0588 and #5088 are withdrawn from marketing but are supported. The #5094 and #5294 are not orderable as new I/O enclosures but are supported. The #0595, #5095, #5096, #5296, and #5790 can be ordered as new HSL I/O enclosures.

All of these HSL/RIO I/O enclosures are system attached via HSL-2 physical ports and run over an HSL-2 interface. I/O units that were attached to earlier systems using the HSL-1 interface (#9877, #9886, #9887, #2886, #2887) must be upgraded before being attached to the Power 550 system. This includes the #0588/5088, which previously had supported the HSL-2 interface only with an RPQ on POWER5 and POWER5+ systems. You can order the HSL-2 interface as #6417 (MES) or #9517 (from factory with new I/O tower/drawer).

The #5786 EXP24 disk enclosure is also supported. This I/O enclosure holds up to 24 internal 15k rpm SCSI disk drives that are run by a disk controller in a PCI slot located in the Power 550 processor, 12X, or HSL enclosure.

Disk and disk controller protection rules

The Power 550 is designed to minimize single points of failure. In order to have an IBM-supported configuration, the following minimum level of integrated disk storage is required:

  • All disk drives must to be protected by RAID or mirroring.
  • All disk controllers with write cache must be protected by either auxiliary write cache or by mirroring the controller. If SCSI disk controllers such as the 40 MB write cache #5703 or #0628 and the 90 MB write cache #5776, #5737, and #0648 are used, they must be mirrored, as these cards do not have an auxiliary write cache option.

Note: The optional write cache option for the system unit #5679 includes auxiliary write cache protection.

PCIe adapters

PCIe adapter slots can support higher speeds and capacities than the PCI-X generation of PCI slots. PCIe and PCI-X slots are physically different. PCIe adapters cannot plug into a PCI-X slot and vice versa. PCIe adapters do not use an IOP.

The Power 550 processor enclosure has three PCIe slots. The following PCIe adapters are available:

  • #2893/9693 PCIe 2-Line WAN with Modem (IBM i, Linux)
  • #2894/9694 PCIe 2-Line WAN with Modem (CIM) (IBM i, Linux)
  • #5773 PCIe 4Gb Fibre Channel Adapter (IBM i V6R1, Linux, AIX)
  • #5767 PCIe 1Gb Ethernet UPT 2-Port IOA (IBM i, Linux, AIX)
  • #5768 PCIe 1Gb Ethernet Fiber 2-Port IOA (IBM i, Linux, AIX)

The PCIe 2-Line WAN with modem IOA supports the use of IBM i Operations Console-Direct Attach (commonly called ops console). This IBM i console option uses a special cable #0367 attached to a user-supplied Microsoft Windows workstation.

IBM i consoles

Select one of the following IBM i consoles:

  • Operations console attached via Ethernet port (LAN console) or WAN port (ops console)
  • Hardware Management Console (HMC)

A twinax console is not supported unless an HMC is present on the system. A 9944-100 Thin Console is not supported.

Integrated virtual Ethernet (IVE) daughter cards

An IVE daughter card is required on the Power 550 system. This daughter card has a special slot and does not use a PCI slot. Either a #5623 dual-port 10/100/1000 Mb or #5624 quad-port 10/100/1000 Mb can be selected. The Ethernet ports can be virtualized to different partitions, offering flexible configurations.

EnergyScale** technology

The Power 550 server includes EnergyScale** technology that includes power trending, power saving, capping of power, and thermal measurement capabilities.

Additional components

One #7707 1700 watt ac power supply is required. An optional second #7707 power supply provides redundancy and allows either power supply to be hot-swapped. Each power supply requires a power cord.

An operations panel cable is required. For a deskside system, use #1843. For a rack-mount system, use #1877 to specify a cable.

For a deskside system, include a #7226 deskside specify with a feature #7227 door. For a rack-mount system, a #7229 rack-mount specify with a #7268 bezel feature must be configured.

Other system components include:

  • Two system ports and three USB ports for AIX usage
  • Two HMC ports
  • Two SPCN ports
  • One imbedded service processor
  • One DASD/media backplane (#8345)

The minimum Power 550 system configuration (9409-M50) must include:

  • Two processor cards
  • One processor activation
  • 2 or 4 GB memory
  • One power supply
  • One power cord
  • Two disks (unless a Fibre Channel adapter is used for SAN disk drive attachment)
  • One DASD/media backplane (#8345)
  • One operations panel cable
  • One IVE daughter card
  • One DVD drive
  • Rack-mount/deskside features
  • IBM i console specify
  • Server feature
  • IBM i enablement specify
  • Language specify

Product positioning

Top rule

If you require a mid-size server to run your IBM i business applications, the Power 550 offers a powerful and reliable solution. The Power 550 supports up to four POWER6 cores, up to 128 GB memory, two HSL or 12X loops, and up to 546 disk drives or 154 TB. With CUoD, you can quickly increase your processing power when your business demands it. Clients who in the past would have purchased a System i 550 or a System i 570 with modest I/O capabilities should consider the Power 550.

The Power 550 is available as a four-core server with a P20 software tier.

Power 550 compared to two-core Power 520

The four-core Power 550 (POWER6 9409-M50) offers higher performance and larger I/O capacities than the Power 520. In addition to larger n-way, L3 cache, up to 8X larger memory, and more I/O, it offers more I/O flexibility. The Power 550 has up to two I/O loops instead of the maximum of one I/O loop offered by the two-core Power 520 (9408-M25). With two loops you can attach more I/O, and you can choose to mirror the I/O at a loop level. You can also more easily transition from existing HSL/RIO I/O to 12X I/O. This mixed loop environment enables Power 550 clients to use both an HSL/RIO and a 12X loop on the same system. Having both types of I/O loops enables you to migrate existing I/O and invest in the newest I/O drawer technology at the same time. The Power 550 has a P20 software tier while the two-core Power 520 has a P10 software tier.

Power 550 compared to POWER5 model 550

The four-core (1/4-way) Power 550 (POWER6 9409-M50) is a follow-on product to the POWER5 9406-550 1/4-way. Although the systems are similar, a number of differences exist, particularly in the area of new technologies.

Similarities include:

  • IBM i processor licensing and the P20 software tier
  • Support for IBM i V5R4, and later
  • Four-core processor with a minimum of one processor active (1/4-way)
  • Either rack-mounted (4U) or deskside configuration
  • 5250 OLTP capability priced per processor's worth of capacity
  • Support for the attachment of up to 12 I/O tower/drawers via two HSL/RIO loops

Differences include:

  • Uses 4.2 GHz POWER6 technology vs 1.9 GHz POWER5+ technology.
  • Uses all PCIe and PCI-X DDR slots as opposed to slower PCI-X slots in the system unit. (An IOP or IOP-based adapter card can be placed in an HSL-attached I/O drawer/tower.)
  • Can use either a 12X I/O loop or HSL/RIO loop as opposed to only HSL/RIO loop.
  • Includes a 175 MB protected write cache disk controller option for the integrated disk controller in the system unit as opposed to 40 MB unprotected write cache.
  • Requires that all internal disk controllers with write cache be protected with either auxiliary write cache or be mirrored.
  • Can use the new 2U SAS disk drawer for additional internal disk growth as opposed to just SCSI drives in expansion units.
  • Supports a half-high SAS tape drive in the system unit as opposed to a SCSI tape drive.
  • Up to four IVE daughter card ports as opposed to two integrated ports.
  • Optional use of an edition package.
  • Requires PowerVM (previously named Advanced Power Virtualization) for Micro-Partitioning.
  • Includes base warranty of one year with 9 x 5 next-business-day support and customer replaceable unit (CRU) that is upgradable to a higher level of coverage as opposed to 24 x 7 same-business-day support with optional CRU.

Power 550 compared to Power 570

The Power 570 offers more processor growth, more dynamic growth, larger memory maximums, larger I/O maximums and flexibility, and additional redundancy. Power 570 advantages include:

  • Up to a 16-core configuration (vs 4-core)
  • Faster 4.7 GHz POWER6 processors (vs 4.2 GHz) that yields more performance
  • On/Off Capacity on Demand plus Utility on Demand in addition to CUoD
  • Ability to hot plug a Power 570 4-core processor drawer and a GX+ loop adapter
  • Up to 50% more memory (4-core to 4-core) or up to 600% more memory (16-core 570)
  • Up to 100% more I/O loops (4-core to 8-core) or up to 400% more loops (16-core 570)
  • Flexibility to mirror both HSL/RIO and 12X loops (8-core 570)
  • Redundant service processors with failover capability with 8-core or larger 570
  • Multiple processor enclosures that offer additional possibilities to re-IPL, even if one processor enclosure has a hard failure (8-core or larger 570)

The Power 570 has a P30 software tier compared to the Power 550's lower-priced P20 software tier.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM System i 9409 machine type.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.

(#0005) - Bulk Order Indicator

(No longer available as of January 28, 2020)

This specify code is used by manufacturing applications to determine the correct number of additional hardware items (i.e., wrist straps) to include on a bulk MES order.

  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1PO (Initial order maximum: 0)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: MES
  • CSU: Yes
(#0006) - LPAR Restrict Build Process

Added to an initial order system when multiple i5/OS partitions (#0140) are requested. This code instructs manufacturing to only load SLIC on the minimum number of DASD files (i.e., do not spread across all available DASD units). Mutually exclusive with #5000 SW Preload and with #0205 - RISC-to-RISC Data Migration.

  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Initial
  • CSU: N/A
(#0032) - Modem

(No Longer Available as of July 29, 2011)

This specify is required if an external high speed modem is to be shipped with the system. The exact machine type-model of the modem shipped will vary based on what is currently stocked in manufacturing.

  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 384 (Initial order maximum: 250)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0040) - Mirrored System Disk Level

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems: Causes the marketing configurator to error if sufficient disk units are not ordered to support device-level mirrored protection. #0040 causes all disk units to be placed into configurations capable of implementing mirrored pairs.

For upgrade orders: #0040 will cause the marketing configurator to error if sufficient disk units are not available to provide mirroring capability.

It is the customer's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

Mirrored system disk level protection requires all disk units to be placed into mirrored pairs and mirroring be started. The load source must be controlled by the first disk controller on the first system bus and must be mirrored to a like disk unit also attached to the first disk controller on the first system bus.

The minimum number of disks allowed on a system is two.

  • Attributes provided: Device-level mirrored protection
  • Attributes required: Minumum of two (2) disk units
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0041) - Device Parity Protection-All

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

This is the default specify code for data protection capability.

For new systems: Causes the marketing configurator to error if a disk unit or adapter is ordered that is not capable of implementing RAID protection. #0041 causes all internal disk units to be placed into configurations capable of implementing RAID arrays using a RAID-capable disk controller.

For upgrade orders: #0041 will cause the order to replace adapters that are not RAID-capable with RAID-capable adapters. The marketing configurator will error if there are not enough disk units to support a minimum RAID configuration.

It is the customer's responsibility to start RAID on their system.

Device parity protection requires all disk units to be placed in sets large enough to turn on RAID protection, as well as be connected to a RAID-capable adapter. The rules for RAID can be found in the disk controller descriptions.

  • Attributes provided: RAID Data Protection
  • Attributes required: RAID-capable disk unit controller
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0042) - Mirrored System IOP Level

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems: The marketing configurator will error if sufficient disk units and IOPs are not included on the order to support IOP-level mirrored protection. #0042 causes all disk units to be placed into configurations capable of IOP-level mirroring. Each disk unit and its mirrored pair must be on a different disk unit IOP.

Important: The load source disk unit in a new, preloaded system will be device-level mirrored (same protection as provided in #0040, above). This means that the load source is controlled by the first disk unit controller on the first system bus, and will be mirrored with a like disk unit that is also attached to the same first disk controller on the first system bus.

For upgrade orders: #0042 will cause the marketing configurator to error if sufficient disk units, adapters, and IOPs are not available to provide the capability to enable IOP-level mirrored protection for all DASD.

It is the customer's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

The minimum number of disks allowed on a system is four.

  • Attributes provided: IOP-level mirrored protection
  • Attributes required: Minimum of 4 (four) disk units
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0043) - Mirrored System Bus Level

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This code indicates the level of disk protection wanted and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems: The marketing configurator will error on an order if sufficient disk units, IOPs, and expansion units are not included on the order to support bus-level mirrored protection for all disk units. New, preloaded systems will be shipped with bus- level mirroring enabled.

Important: The load source disk unit in a new, preloaded system will be device-level mirrored. This means that the load source is controlled by the first disk controller on the first system bus and will be mirrored with a like disk unit that is also attached to the same first disk controller on the first system bus. Bus level mirroring of the Load Source disk unit can be achieved only by enabling Remote Load Source Mirroring before starting Mirrored Protection. Details about implementing Remote Load Source Mirroring can be found in the iSeries Information Center. Visit:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/

For upgrade orders: The marketing configurator will error if sufficient disk units, IOPs, and expansion units are not available to provide the capability to enable bus-level mirrored protection for all disk units.

It is the client's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

Bus-level mirroring requires all disk units to be placed into mirrored pairs on separate busses. Refer to the iSeries Information Center for important Mirrored Protection and Remote Load Source Mirroring implementation details.

LPAR systems require additional planning.

The minimum number of disks allowed on a system is four.

  • Attributes provided: Bus-level mirrored protection
  • Attributes required: Minimum of 4 (four) disk units
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0047) - Device Parity RAID-6 All

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems: Causes the order to fail if a disk unit or adapter is ordered that is not capable of implementing RAID-6 protection. #0047 causes all internal disk units to be placed into configurations capable of implementing RAID-6 arrays using a RAID-6 capable disk controller. RAID-6 arrays require a minimum of four disk units per array (all disk units within an array must be of the exact same capacity).

For upgrade orders: #0047 will cause the order to replace adapters that are not RAID-6 capable with RAID-6 capable adapters. A warning message will be generated during RAID enablement if there are not enough disk units to support a minimum RAID configuration.

It is the customer's responsibility to start RAID on their system.

Device parity protection requires all disk units to be placed in sets large enough to turn on RAID protection, as well as be connected to a RAID-capable adapter. The rules for RAID can be found in the disk controller descriptions.

  • Attributes provided: RAID-6 Data Protection
  • Attributes required: RAID-6 capable disk unit controller
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0092) - External xSeries Attach

(No Longer Available as of October 29, 2010)

#0092 is added to an order for each Direct Attached xSeries Server connected to the system.

(#0205) - RISC-to-RISC Data Migration

Used on initial orders to designate that the new server will replace (not upgrade) a server on which i5/OS or OS/400 is installed.

When #0205 is on the order, manufacturing will only load SLIC and up through QSYS of i5/OS. This will facilitate migrating some of the i5/OS information from the installed system. In addition to the new server, enough DASD must be ordered to hold all the data from the current model, as well as the required software on the new server.

Specify code #5000, SW Preload Required, is mutually exclusive with #0205.

The migration process requires that the installed model be at the same version and release level of OS/400 and other licensed programs as the new server. Financial considerations of upgrades to the installed software should be reviewed as part of the migration planning.

(#0308) - Mirrored System-IOA Level

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

This specify code indicates the level of disk protection desired and helps ensure that adequate hardware is in the final configuration.

For new systems, the marketing configurator will show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not included on the order to support IOA-level mirroring protection. #0308 causes all disk units to be placed into configurations capable of IOA-level mirroring. Each disk unit and its mirrored pair must be on a different disk controller.

Note that the load source disk unit in a new, preloaded system will be device-level mirrored (same protection as provided with feature #0040). This means that the load source is controlled by the first disk unit controller on the first system bus, and will be mirrored with a like disk unit that is also attached to the same first disk controller on the first system bus.

For upgrade orders, #0308 will cause the marketing configurator to show an error if sufficient disk units and disk controllers are not available to provide the capability to enable IOA-level mirrored protection for all DASD.

It is the client's responsibility to start mirroring on their system.

(#2757) - PCI-X Ultra RAID Disk Ctrl

(No longer available as of June 01, 2006)

This feature is a PCI-X SCSI controller with a maximum compressed write cache of 757MB. The #2757 provides RAID-5 protection for internal disks and also supports internal tape units, internal CD/ DVD-ROM and internal DVD-RAM units.

The #2757 has four LVD SCSI buses that support up to 20 internal disk units.

Hardware data compression is not supported.

In addition to providing RAID-5 protection for disks, the #2757 is also a high-performance controller for disks protected by system mirroring or disks with no data protection.

A minimum of three disk units of the same capacity are needed for a valid RAID-5 configuration. A maximum of six arrays are allowed per controller, with a maximum of 18 disk units allowed per array. All disk units in an array must be of the same capacity.

Parity is spread across either two, four, eight, or sixteen disk units in an array. If an array of three disk units is started, parity is spread across two disk units. If an array of four to seven disk units is started, parity is spread across four disk units. If an array of eight to fifteen disk units is started, parity is spread across eight disk units. If an array of sixteen to eighteen disk units is started, parity is spread across sixteen disk units.

The number of arrays and size of each array can be influenced by specifying an optimization of either balance, performance, or capacity in Operations Navigator when starting arrays. An optimization of balance is the default when starting arrays from the green screens. If disk units are included into an existing array, parity may be spread across less than the preferred number of disk units. In this case the RAID function must be stopped and started to redistribute the parity.

The #2757 can also control up to two internal removable media devices (tape, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM/RAM).

  • Attributes provided: Controller for up to 20 disk units and two internal removable media devices
  • Attributes required: One 3V PCI slot. This feature is only orderable as part of a feature conversion to #5581.
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 48 (Initial order maximum: 0)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Supported
  • CSU: Yes
(#2780) - PCI-X Ultra4 RAID Disk Ctrl

(No longer available as of May 01, 2008)

The #2780 is an Ultra4 (Ultra320) SCSI controller with a maximum compressed write cache of 757MB and a maximum compressed read cache size of 1GB, that provides RAID-5 protection for internal disks and also supports internal tape units, CD-ROM and DVD units. The #2780 has four Ultra4(Ultra320) SCSI buses.

In addition to providing RAID-5 protection for disks, #2780 is also designed to work as a high performance controller for disks protected by system mirroring or disks with no protection.

This controller also uses a Cache Battery Pack with can be replaced concurrent with system operation.

The #2780 controller supports a maximum of 20 disk units.

A minimum of three disk units of the same capacity are needed for a valid RAID-5 configuration. A maximum of six arrays are allowed per controller, with a maximum of 18 disk units allowed per array. All disk units in an array must be of the same capacity.

Parity is spread across either two, four, eight, or 16 disk units in an array. If an array of three disk units is started, parity is spread across two disk units. If an array of four to seven disk units is started, parity is spread across four disk units. If an array of 8-15 disk units is started, parity is spread across eight disk units. If an array of 16-18 disk units is started, parity is spread across 16 disk units.

The number of arrays and size of each array can be influenced by specifying an optimization of either "Balance", "Performance", or "Capacity" in Operations Navigator when starting arrays. An optimization of "Balance" will be used by default when starting arrays from the green screens. If disk units are included into an existing array, the number of parity drives does not increase, so parity may be spread across less than the preferred number of disk units. In this case the RAID function must be stopped and then started in order to redistribute the parity.
Note: This controller does not support DASD compression.

(#4805) - PCI Crypto Accelerator

(No longer available as of June 01, 2006)

Feature #4805 provides improved performance for high-transaction-rate secure Web applications which use the secure sockets layer (SSL) or transport layer security (TLS) protocols. SSL/ TLS is the predominant method for securing Web transactions. Applications using SSL/TLS include those transferring payment information (e.g., credit card numbers) over the Internet, e.g., between a Web browser and a server in the case of B2C or between servers in the case of B2B. Establishing SSL/TLS secure Web connections requires very compute intensive cryptographic processing. Feature #4805 off-loads cryptographic processing associated with the establishment of a SSL/TLS session, thus freeing the server for other processing.

The Cryptographic Accelerator is targeted to high-transaction-rate secure Web applications using SSL/TLS. If your application requires a FIPS 140-1 certified, tamper-resistant module for storing cryptographic keys and/or requires financial PIN processing, then features #4801 or #4802, Cryptographic Coprocessors should be your choice.
Note: FIPS 140-1 is a U.S. Government National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) administered standard and certification program for cryptographic modules.

No base IOPs are included with a #5296. For each #5296 ordered, a quantity of two #0694, #5096 Equivalent, specify codes will be added to the order. If a #5296 is to be shared between two systems, one #0694 must be removed from the original ordering system and added to the sharing system, using a Record Purpose Only (RPO) change.

Dual line cord capability is available for the #5296 with feature #5116. With a #5116 installed, both tower units of a #5296 will have dual line cord capability. Two additional line cords (for a total of four), must be ordered when a #5116 is installed. Plugging in the second line cord from the upper and lower units, even if to the same outlet, enables each unit's AC power modules to be redundant. For the best power protection, the first and second line cords should be attached to different power sources.

(#5703) - PCI-X RAID Disk Unit Ctlr

(No longer available as of June 01, 2006)

The #5703 is a SCSI RAID controller that has a 40MB cache and provides RAID-5 protection of internal disks. It also supports internal tape units, CD-ROM, DVD-RAM, and DVD-ROM units.

The #5703 has two SCSI (VHDCI) buses.

In addition to providing RAID-5 protection for disks, #5703 also works as a high-performance controller for disks protected by system mirroring or disks with no protection.

The #5703 supports a maximum of 12 disk units (this total may be limited due to other expansion tower constraints).

A minimum of three disk units of the same capacity are needed for a valid RAID-5 set. A maximum of four arrays are allowed per controller. All disk units in an array must be of the same capacity.

Parity is spread across either two, four, or eight disk units in an array. If an array of three disk units is started, parity is spread across two disk units. If an array of four to seven disk units is started, parity is spread across four disk units. If an array of 8-12 disk units is started, parity is spread across eight disk units.

The number of arrays and size of each array can be influenced by specifying an optimization of either balance, performance, or capacity in Operations Navigator when starting arrays. An optimization of balance is the default when starting arrays from green screens. If disk units are in cluded into an existing array, parity may be spread across less than the preferred number of disk units. In this case the RAID function must be stopped and then started to redistribute the parity.

A #5703 can control up to two removable media devices (internal tape, CD-ROM, DVD-RAM, and DVD-ROM).
