Express editions

Express editions enable initial ease of ordering and feature a lower price than if you ordered them "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 520 system. Taking advantage of the edition is the only way you can use no-charge features for processor activations and IBM i user license entitlements. The Express editions are available only during the initial system order and cannot be ordered after your system is shipped.

The IBM configurator offers these easy-to-order Express editions that include no-charge activations or no-charge IBM i user entitlements. You can modify the Express Edition configurations to match your 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 equivalent function regular charge features.

Memory considerations

Four DDR2 memory DIMM slots with error checking and correcting (ECC) are used in the one-core Power 520 system. Memory DIMMs are plugged in pairs (one memory feature equals two DIMMs). At least one pair of memory DIMMs (one memory feature) is required. Memory features of different sizes cannot be mixed. For example, if one 4 GB memory feature is initially installed, the only future memory addition supported is another 4 GB memory feature (assuming the first 4 GB memory feature is not removed).

The one-core Power 520 (9407-M15) supports 1, 2, 4, and 8 GB memory features.

Memory     Memory                   Maximum GB

8 GB       #4523      2 x 4 GB      16GB               667
 

PCI slots/GX+ slot

The system unit includes 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 support an IOP or IOP-based IOA. This means that features such as twinax controllers and tape drives requiring an older IOP-driven controller are not supported on the one-core 520.

The Power 520 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.

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 disk 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 520 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. 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 520 configuration, IBM i disk drives must be protected by either mirroring or RAID.

Disk and disk controller protection rules

The Power 520 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 that the optional write cache option for the system unit #5679 includes auxiliary write cache protection.

PCI Express (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 520 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 6.1, 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 a Hardware Management Console (HMC) is present on the system. A 9944-100 Thin Console is not supported.

Integrated Virtual Ethernet (IVE) daughter card

An IVE daughter card is required on the Power 520 system. This daughter card has a special slot. It does not use a PCI slot. You can select either a #5623 dual-port 10/100/1000 Mb or #5624 quad-port 10/100/1000 Mb card. The Ethernet ports can be virtualized to different partitions offering flexible configuration.

EnergyScale(TM) technology

The Power 520 server includes EnergyScale(TM) technology that includes power trending, power saving, capping of power, and thermal measurement capabilities.

Additional components

One #7703 950 watt ac power supply is required. Optionally, a second #7703 power supply provides redundancy and allows either power supply to be hot-swapped. Each power supply requires a power cord.

An op 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 #7250 deskside specify with a #7224 door feature. For a rack-mount system, include a #7251 rack-mount specify with a #7267 adjustable rails and bezel feature.

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 520 system configuration must include:

  • One IBM i processor license entitlement and five IBM i user license entitlements (9407-M15)
  • One processor card
  • One processor activation
  • 1 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 or deskside features

Top rule

The Power 520 Express The Power 520 Express one-core (9407-M15) or 1-way server offers you an affordable and reliable solution if you require an entry server to run your IBM i business applications. The Power 520 one-core optimized for small business clients, supports up to 16 GB of memory, up to six disk drives, DVD, and tape -- all within the single system unit enclosure. The Power 520 one-core offers clients who in the past would have purchased a System i 515 or System i 520 Express a ready-to-run packaged offering.

If you are looking for more scalability and expandability, the Power 520 two-core (9408-M25) or 1/2-way is the ideal package to ensure your Power Systems server can handle your business growth. The Power 520 two- core server supports Capacity on Demand to quickly increase your processing power when your business requires it. It also supports adding I/O expansion units and twice the memory of the one-core, up to 32 GB. Clients, who in the past would have purchased a System i 525 or System i 520 Standard, Enterprise, or Solution edition, should consider the Power 520 two-core.

The Power 520 is offered as either a one-or two-core server. The two- core server delivers more performance and a much greater expandability than the one-core server. Advantages of the two-core server include:

  • Double the processors (one-core versus two-core)
  • Double the L2 cache (4 MB per core)
  • Double the maximum memory (16 GB versus 32 GB)
  • Support for an I/O loop and associated PCI slots, disk slots, and other I/O expansion
  • Support for additional types of heritage I/O supported by IOP-based cards
  • CUoD to permanently activate the second processor
  • Upgrade paths from the 9406-520 (specific editions) and 9406-525

The one-core Power 520 has a lower entry price and lower IBM i software tier (P05 as opposed to P10). Choose the one-core Power 520 system where you are comfortable with the performance and growth options within the system unit and where price is a critical part of the purchase decision. Choose the two-core Power 520 system when additional I/O capacity and CPU performance is required now or in the future.

Power 520 system compared to a Power 550 Express system:

The four-core Power 550 (POWER6 9409-M50) delivers higher performance and larger I/O capacities than the Power 520. In addition to larger n-way, memory, and I/O, you benefit from more I/O flexibility. The Power 550 has two I/O loops instead of the 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 means you can choose to use both an HSL/RIO and a 12X loop on the same system. Having both types of I/O loops allows you to migrate existing I/O and invest in the newest I/O drawer technology at the same time. In addition, the Power 550 is a P20 IBM i software tier.

Two-core Power 520 compared to POWER5 systems:

The two-core Power 520 (POWER6 9408-M25) is a follow-on product to the POWER5 9406-525. Although the systems are similar, a number of differences exist, particularly in the area of new technologies.

Similarities between the two-core Power 520 and the 9406-525 include:

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM System i 9407 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
(#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
(#0140) - Logical Partitioning Specify

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

#0140 is used to specify that this system will be logically partitioned. A quantity of one #0140 is required on the order/system for each logical partition running i5/OS.

Initial system orders and model upgrade orders containing this specify will ship without RAID or mirroring enabled.

  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 10 (Initial order maximum: 10)
  • OS level required: i5/OS V5R4 with V5R4M5 Machine Code, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0142) - Linux Partition Specify

(No longer available as of May 12, 2020)

#0142 is used to specify that this system will be logically partitioned with a Linux partition. A quantity of one #0142 needs to be on the order/system for each Linux partition required.

Direct-attach features are not allowed in OS/400 partitions.

There are no minimum number of Linux direct-attached features required per Linux partition. A Linux partition can exist without any direct- attach features in it. In this case, the system will provide virtual I/O for those Linux partitions that contain no direct-attach features.

  • Attributes provided: One Linux Partition
  • Attributes required: #0140 Logical Partitioning Specify
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 9 (Initial order maximum: 9)
  • OS level required: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS for POWER Version 4, or later, or SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for POWER, or later
  • Initial Order/MES/Both/Supported: Both
  • CSU: Yes
(#0145) - AIX Partition Specify

#0145 is used to specify that this system will be logically partitioned with an AIX partition. A quantity of one #0145 needs to on the order/inventory records for each AIX partition required.

AIX offered/supported features are allowed only within an AIX partition. AIX offered/supported features are not allowed in i5/OS partitions.

There are no minimum number of AIX direct-attached features required per AIX partition. An AIX partition can exist without any AIX features in it. In this case, the system will provide virtual I/ O for those AIX partitions that contain no AIX features.

(#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.
