Model abstract 7028-6E1

The IBM eServer pSeries 610 Model 6E1 Deskside Server gives you tools for managing e-business, greater application flexibility, and innovative technology, all designed to help you capitalize on the e-business revolution.

The symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) uses one or two, state-of-the-art, 64-bit, copper-based, POWER3-II microprocessors running at 333, 375 or 450 MHz. Each 333 or 375 MHz processor includes 4 MB of Level 2 (L2) cache, and each 450 MHz processor includes 8 MB of L2 cache. The base memory is 512 GB expandable to 8 GB for faster performance and exploitation of 64-bit addressing as used in large database applications.

The Model 6E1 contains four bays in the base system if ordered with the 333 MHz processor. A system ordered with the 375 or 450 MHz processor comes with an additional six front-accessible, hot-swap capable bays that can accommodate up to 440.4 GB of disk storage. These six hot- swap bays are an available option with a 333 MHz system. The remaining bays are used for a diskette drive, a CD-ROM or a DVD-RAM, an optional non-hot-swap disk, and an optional media device.

To help keep strategic applications available 24 x 7, the Model 6E1 systems feature an integrated service processor that constantly monitors the systems' vital signs. If the system malfunctions, the service processor can "call home" by automatically dialing out to an IBM service center, often before any problem is apparent to users or system administrators.

Light Path Diagnostics are also built into the Model 6E1. LEDs -- physically located on key system components -- assist in quick diagnosis and resolution of problems, should they arise.

1-year warranty options are introduced in the U.S. only on the Model 6E1. The base warranty on both systems is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday (excluding holidays), next business day with on site repair. The base warranty can be upgraded for an additional cost to either 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday (excluding holidays) 4-hour response time with on-site repair, or 24 x 7, 4-hour response time with on-site repair.

The Model 6E1 is enabled for Linux.

This solution, when combined with applications that meet IBM's ClusterProven standards, provides a superior base for high availability, an essential ingredient of e-commerce.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Reliability, Fault Tolerance, and Data Integrity

The reliability of the Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 system starts with reliable components, devices, and sub-systems. During the design and development process, sub-systems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to ensure highest product quality level.

The Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 system L2 Cache and system memory offers ECC (error checking and correcting) fault-tolerant features. ECC is designed to correct environmentally induced single-bit intermittent memory failures and single-bit hard failures. With ECC, the likelihood of memory failures will be substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure. System memory also provides 4-bit packet error detection that helps to protect data integrity in the event of a DRAM chip failure. The system bus, I/O bus, and PCI buses are designed with parity error detection.

Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing capability are also provided by the AIX operating system.

The Journaled File System of the AIX operating system maintains file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.

Service Processor

A Service Processor included in the Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 gives you an immediate means to diagnose, check status, and sense operational conditions of a remote system, even when the main processor is inoperable.

The Service Processor enables firmware and operating system surveillance, several remote power controls, environmental monitoring, reset, and boot features along with remote maintenance and diagnostic activities, including console mirroring. The Service Processor can place calls to report surveillance failures, critical environmental faults, and critical processing faults.

Fault Monitoring Functions

  • BIST (Built-in self-test) and POST (Power-on self-test) check processor, L2 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system, every time the system is powered on. If a non-critical error is detected or if the errors occur in the resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the booting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are logged in the system non-volatile RAM (NVRAM).

  • Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it impacts customer operation.

  • AIX log facility (where hardware and software failures are recorded and analyzed by Error Log Analysis (ELA) routine) provides warning to the system administrator on the causes of system problems. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along probable replacement hardware components when a service call is placed, thus minimizing system repair time.

Mutual Surveillance

The Service Processor can monitor the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and it can monitor the operating system for loss of control. It also allows the operating system to monitor for Service Processor activity. The Service Processor can take appropriate action, including calling for service, when it detects the firmware or the operating system has lost control. Likewise, the operating system can request a Service Processor repair action if necessary.

Environmental Monitoring Functions

  • Temperature monitoring designed to increase the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range.

  • Temperature monitoring designed to warn the system administrator of potential environmental related problems (for example, air conditioning and air circulation around the system) so that appropriate corrective actions can be taken before a critical failure threshold is reached, and to provide orderly system shutdown when operating temperature exceeds the critical level.

  • Fan speed monitoring designed to provide warning and an orderly system shutdown when the speed is out of operational specification.

  • Voltage monitoring designed to provide warning and an orderly system shutdown when the voltages are out of operational specification.

Error Handling and Reporting

In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally-induced failure, the system "Run-time Error Capture" capability is designed to systematically analyze 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 rebooted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the AIX operating system. Error Log Analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of failing hardware.

With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to send out automatically an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the two "Attention Indicators" (one located on the front of the system unit and the other on the rear of the system unit) to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be turned on by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the indicator will flash while an error condition will cause the indicator to be on solid.

Availability Enhancement Functions

  • On-line (Concurrent) Diagnostics with ELA and Service Aids allows administrators or IBM service representatives to diagnose potential system malfunctions without interrupting end-user operation.

  • The auto-restart (reboot) option, when enabled, can reboot the system automatically following an unrecoverable software error, software hang, hardware failure, or environmentally-induced (AC power) failure.

Serviceability

The Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 are designed for customer setup of the machine and for subsequent addition of most features (adapters/devices). For a fee, IBM Service can perform the installation.

  • The Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 have been designed to allow customers to replace service parts (Customer Replaceable Unit) if they desire to do so. To accomplish this, the Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 have incorporated a System Indicator Panel which contains a group of LEDs which will indicate the failing FRU (i.e. IO backplane, etc.) or the functional area of the system that is experiencing the fault (i.e. power supplies, processors, memory, fans, etc.). Any one of the functional area LEDs being ON will direct the user and/or service personnel to the physical area of the system where they should find an additional fault indicator in the ON state which indicates that the component or FRU is responsible for the current fault.

  • The Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 allow support personnel to remotely log into a system to review error logs and perform remote maintenance. The Model 6E1 and Model 6C1 Service Processor enables the analysis of a system that will not boot.

  • The diagnostics consist of Stand-alone Diagnostics, which are loaded from the CD-ROM drive, and Online Diagnostics.

  • Online Diagnostics, when installed, are resident with AIX on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX Error Log and the AIX Configuration Data.

    • Service mode allows checking of system devices and features.

    • Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.

    • Maintenance mode allows checking of most system resources.

  • The System Management Services (SMS) error log is accessible from the SMS menu for tests performed through SMS programs. The Service Processor error log is accessible from the Service Processor menu for results of Service Processor tests.

Electronic Service Agent

The Electronic Service Agent is available at no additional charge. When installed on the pSeries, the Electronic Service Agent can enhance IBM's ability to provide the system with maintenance service.

The Electronic Service Agent:

  • Monitors and analyzes system errors, and if needed, can place automatically a service call to IBM without customer intervention.

  • Can reduce the effect of business disruptions due to unplanned system outages and failures.

  • Performs problem analysis on a subset of hardware-related problems and, with customer authorization, can report automatically the results to IBM Service.

Online Customer Support (OCS)

OCS for hardware problem reporting may be performed via remote login by pSeries specialists using normal AIX facilities. The Electronic Service Agent software can also be used for this capability.

AIX Support offerings will be under AIXSERV and Electronic Service Agent.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order.

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.

(#2498) PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

The RS/6000 PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter(#2498) is a non- bootable high performance Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,1,1E, 5, or 5E capability and can address up to sixty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on four independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 128 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 128 MByte fast-write cache is a resident feature of the PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter that utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter failure, a replacement PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter insuring data integrity. The 128 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter has four independent Ultra3 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and four external ports. The two internal ports are shared with two of the external ports. Two of the four busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The other two busses only drive external ports. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on supporting RS/6000 systems. Systems with one or two internal 6-pack disks can attach to a PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter. The four external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The four external ports also provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate.

Limitations:

  • The four external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 external Fast/Wide SCSI disk enclosure.
  • Even though the PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at Ultra3 SCSI speeds (up to 160 MBytes/s) and Ultra2 SCSI speeds (up to 80MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system backplane.

In order for full support and to take full advantage of the Ultra3 (up to 160 MBytes/s) speed of this adapter, the proper AIX level also needs to be considered. AIX 4.3.3 with appropriate APAR updates or later AIX versions support the full range of SCSI bus data rates (including Ultra3 SCSI up to 160 MByte/s). Check the AIX level your system has or is able to support.

(#4960) IBM e-business Cryptographic Accelerator

(No Longer Available as of May 31, 2006)

The IBM e-business Cryptographic Accelerator is a short form factor PCI Secure Socket Layer (SSL) hardware accelerator adapter. For Secure Web transaction, SSL operations is a key requirement. To do this, public-key cryptographic operations using SSL handshake protocol is employed. The IBM e-business Cryptographic Accelerator is a hardware cryptographic solution that off-loads this compute-intensive public-key cryptographic processing from the host.

The overall operation control, including command decoding, is implemented in hardware and requires no on-card microprocessor subsystem. As such, the adapter is a less expensive alternative to those who do not need the high security of the on-card secure programming environment such as is offered by the PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor(#4958), but do need the high cryptographic performance that hardware acceleration provides by offloading the host processor.

Note: The IBM e-business Cryptographic Accelerator is only supported by the industry standard PKCS #11 application programming interface (API) Version 2.01, and applications which interface to the PKCS #11 Support Program.

(#4961) IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter is a single slot, long, 64-bit, 33 MHz PCI adapter supporting 4 industry standard Ethernet 10 Base-T or 100 Base-T interfaces either half or full duplex. Each port is provided with it's own RJ-45 connector for attachment to standard CAT-3/5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable. The adapter is IEEE 802.3u compatible and provides full auto-negotiation for detecting speed and duplex capability across each port. Network boot capability and Network Install Manager (NIM) capability are available using this adapter if no specific limitation is stated. The IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) should be considered where maximum port density is required per I/O card slot. But, for high end systems, where card slots are not the limiting factor and maximum throughput is required, the single port IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968) are the preferred solutions. Below are some performance factors to consider when choosing the right adapter for your needs. These performance comparisons are based on all four ports of the IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) being active.

  • With all four ports under full bandwidth conditions, a single IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) is expected to deliver up to 3 times the comparable performance of a single IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (#2968).
  • Under most conditions, each port of the IBM Universal 4-Port 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (#4961) is expected to perform at greater than 50% the throughput of the single port of the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (#4962) or the IBM 10/100 Mbps Eth PCI Adapter (#2968).

Note: The resulting performance in your environment compared to the above may vary and depends upon the RS/6000 model, the I/O configuration, and associated workload of your applications.

(#5703) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter (#5703) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt, bootable high performance Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,5, or 10 capability and can address up to thirty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on two independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 40 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 40 MByte fast-write cache is resident on the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and utilizes non-volatile RAM. The 40 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has two independent ultra320 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and two external ports. The two internal ports are shared with the two external ports. The SCSI busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on certain supporting pSeries systems with internal multiple disk drives or packs of drives. Internally attached Ultra320 devices are designed to run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

When an array configuration is selected with the RAID Manager, the disk drives being designated as part of the array (attached to either the internal or external ports) are required to be formatted to 522 byte sectors. 522 byte sectors provide additional CRC error checking for improved data integrety. A menu option is provided in the AIX supporting software which will reformat these disk drives prior to their usage in an array. Conversely, when a disk drive is removed from an array, a similar menu option is also provided to re-format them back to 512 byte sectors.

Note: Some disk drives require that their microcode be updated to the latest level before being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors.

Also, there are some disk drives which do not support being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors. The PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager will inform the user of these known situations when they exist. For disk microcode updates, go to the following Web page URL:

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/mdownload/

Two industry standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DS4 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TS4 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 320 MB/s SCSI bus data rate configured as either a non-array or an array of disks. Also the two external ports provide non-array connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

Limitations:

  • The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate as well as connectivity to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate, but is limited to only non-array configuration support.
  • The two external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 IBM Multi-Storage Tower Model 105.
  • Even though the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system disk backplane.
  • Disk drives internal to the pSeries system shipped prior to September 1, 2003 require a disk drive microcode update to run at Ultra320 speed. To obtain the appropriate microcode update, go to the following web page URL:

(#5712) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5712) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.), up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI adapter (160 MBps). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external. Internally attached Ultra320 devices can run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two industry standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DS4 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TS4 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 320 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The two external ports also provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate and to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. Also the two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5712) is a native boot adapter with AIX 5.1 or AIX 5.2 software in a supported pSeries or RS/6000 systems. The adapter also supports target mode.

Limitations:

  • The two external ports do not support the connection to the IBM 7131-105 IBM Multi-Storage Tower Model 105.
  • Even though the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has ports that run at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system disk backplane.

(#6203) PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 10, 2004)

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) is a 64-bit adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external and will support a data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second, up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI adapter (80 MBytes per second).

In order to achieve an Ultra3 SCSI bus data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this Ultra3 160 MBytes per second performance, all attaching devices or subsystems should also be Ultra3 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2 and Ultra3 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two industry standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter.

Note: If any Single Ended (SE) SCSI subsystem is attached to an external port of this adapter, the SCSI port will auto-throttle to a "Fast" interface speed running no faster than 20MB/s maximum. This auto- throttle function is performed to ensure best signal quality between host adapter and attaching subsystem. The second external port is unaffected unless a SE subsystem is also attached to it. If so, it would also auto- throttle as described above.

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) also is a native boot adapter with AIX 4.3.3 or AIX 5.1 (with appropriate updates) in the supported pSeries or RS/6000 systems.

  • Attributes provided: Attachment of internal SCSI devices (on systems that support an internal SCSI device or backplane attachment with this adapter) and external SCSI devices

(#6230) Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230) is a 4 port (2 loop) Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) adapter providing an instantaneous data transfer rate of up to 160 MByte/s per loop. It also provides eight- initiator, non-RAID capability, two-initiator RAID 1, two-initiator RAID 0 + 1, two-initiator RAID 5, or one-initiator RAID 0 capability. The adapter accepts a 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) that improves write performance in RAID 0+1, RAID 5, and non-RAID applications. When the 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card is used, the adapter can be configured in either single or dual initiator fast- write cache mode. In dual initiator fast-write cache mode, if one of the two adapters fail, the failing adapter is designed to transfer control over to the other. Also, in dual initiator Fast Write Cache mode, the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is available and required to utilize the full 32 MBytes of fast-write cache on the adapters. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card is not used in dual initiator fast-write cache mode, the effective fast-write cache capacity will be 16 MBytes on each adapter. See the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) for information.

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter when operated in a RAID 5 configuration will support (2+P) to (15+P) arrays and up to 6 (15+P) arrays. When operated in a RAID 1 or RAID 0+1 configuration, will support up to eight disk drives mirrored. The adapter also supports Hot Spares in RAID 5 and RAID 0+1 mode. The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter also supports connectivity to external disk enclosures and internal RS/6000 SSA configurations. Optional SSA Fiber-Optic Extender is also supported (Refer to IBM 7133 Sales literature for additional information)

Any supported RS/6000 system can be set up to boot from an Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230), provided a non-RAID SSA disk is included as part of the configuration. Other disks associated with the adapter can be RAID but at least one disk must be a non-RAID SSA disk. The non-RAID SSA disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SSA storage unit. If your system is running with AIX 4.3.3 or later software, native boot capability is supported. For factory system orders with AIX preload requested, an internal SCSI disk drive will be preloaded as the native boot disk even if internal SSA disk drive(s) are present. If your system is running with AIX 4.2.1 or AIX 4.3.2 software, the below procedure applies in order to boot using the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter:

  • The non-RAID SSA disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SSA storage unit.
  • A supported AIX version of software (with proper updates) must be loaded to the non-RAID SSA disk using AIX's Network Install Manager (NIM) before booting from the non-RAID disk.
  • The system with a non-RAID SSA disk must have a network connection with another RS/6000 system performing the NIM Master function to perform the install. On RS/6000 SP systems, a similar network install is performed from a control workstation.
  • Once AIX with updates is installed on the non-RAID SSA disk and the system is configured for booting, booting will take place from the boot disk without any support from the control processor or NIM Master and the system does not have to be connected to the network at boot time.

A 3-Way Copy Function allows a user to create a third copy to an existing RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array while mirrored operation continues. 3-Way Copy allows the user, at any time after the copy process has completed, to split the third copy off from the original RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array to form an independent RAID copy. This third copy or "snapshot" copy could be typically used to perform a backup or to test some new application. The 3-Way Copy Function is available only via a code download and can only be gained by going to the SSA web support pages defined below.

When performing SSA device or subsystem planning, installation, upgrades, or preventive maintenance, refer to the following Web support pages. They provide access to the latest SSA publications and support code for the system, SSA adapters, and SSA subsystems. These sites should also be considered during system hardware and/or operating system upgrades if SSA devices are included in the system.

(#6231) 128 MByte DRAM Option Card

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is a field only optional feature to the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or a factory or field option for the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230). This option is recommended for dual initiator fail-over Fast Write Cache (FWC) configurations. The option increases the existing DRAM on the adapter to 128 MBytes. In this type of dual initiator FWC configuration, the existing DRAM does not have enough capacity to completely contain a copy of each adapter's 32 MByte FWC and also provide additional working space. The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card provides this additional space needed to contain a full copy of each adapters 32 MByte FWC content and allows for full 32 MByte fail-over protection. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is not used with dual-initiator FWC configurations, the effective FWC capacity is reduced to 16 MBytes per adapter.

If this feature is ordered as a field upgrade to an existing SerialRAID adapter (#6225 or 6230), a CD-ROM with appropriate software and publications are also provided.

  • Attributes provided: 128 MByte DRAM memory

The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) is a 32 MByte fast- write optional feature that plugs into the IBM RS/6000 Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter Plus (#6230). It utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an Advanced SerialRAID Adapter failure, a replacement Advanced SerialRAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter insuring data integrity. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card can provide a significant improvement of data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SSA RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement using the optional card will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (# 6225) will operate in either non-RAID or RAID 5 mode, in single-initiator configurations. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230) will operate in non-RAID, RAID 5, or RAID 0+1 mode, in single- initiator or dual initiator configurations.

(#8136) Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232 (RAN) is a modified version of the existing 16-port Remote Async Node (feature #8130 or 8134) in an industry-standard 19-inch rack mount chassis to allow simpler installation and ease-of-use. Like the existing RAN, it can also be configured as a desktop device.

As an additional benefit, the metal chassis meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host to meet the needs of customers with these requirements.

The RANs provide 16 ports of EIA-232 capability with full modem controls on each port and are connected to the 128-port Async Controller (Micro Channel or ISA versions) residing in the host. RANs are connected in daisy-chain fashion up to 8 RANs per 128-port Async Controller (either version).

The rack-mountable RAN offers these enhanced features:

  • Industry-standard 19-inch rack mountable chassis (can be configured for stacking on a desktop or mounted in a 19-inch rack).
  • Meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host.
  • All RJ-45 connectors are now on the front panel, greatly enhancing cable management.
  • The DB-15 synchronous connectors (cabling from host to RAN and between RANs) and the power cord and switch are located on the rear panel.
  • Power supply is self contained within the unit.

The rack-mountable RAN offers these same features as the existing RAN product:

  • Identical function and support as existing 16-port Remote Async Node (RAN), feature #8130 or 8134.
  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel or ISA host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
  • Full modem control supports the following interface signals: TxD, RxD, RTS, CTS, DSR, DCD, DTR, RI.
  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.
  • Individual ports support a maximum EIA-232 distance of 62 meters (200 feet).
  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer-supplied cables.
  • Location of RAN up to 330 meters from the host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.
  • Remote operation via synchronous modems or CSU/DSU extends the distance and allows location of RANs at geographically distant location from the host.
  • Attributes provided: 16 RJ-45 EIA-232 ports AND 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
  • Attributes required: 1 RAN-to-128-port Controller connection OR 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
  • For 7028-6E1: (#8136)

Each port can be individually programmed to provide a asynchronous connection of 230 Kbaud, but a limited number of ports in a maximum configuration (128 ports) can be supported at this baud rate.

  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel, ISA or PCI host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
