What the IBM Netfinity 7000-M10 Offers
The unique design of the server takes advantage of advancements in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), data storage, and memory management.
The server combines:
The server supports up to four Intel® Pentium® II Xeon microprocessors. You can install multiple microprocessors in the server to enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
The server is shipped with a Netfinity Advanced Remote Management Controller.
With this adapter, in conjunction with the Netfinity Manager Advanced System Management service capabilities of Netfinity Manager, you can locally and remotely configure and monitor many features of the server.
You can configure system-management events ( such as POST, loader, and operating system timeouts or
critical temperature, voltage, and tamper alerts).
If any of these events occur, the Netfinity Advanced Remote Management Controller can forward an alert to another resource:
You can dialout and directly access and control a remote Netfinity Advanced Remote Management Controller.
In addition, you can remotely monitor, record, and replay all textual data generated during power-on
self-test (POST) on a remote server with a Netfinity Advanced Remote Management Controller.
While monitoring a remote system during POST, you can enter keyboard commands that will be relayed to the remote system.
Note: The Advanced Remote Management Controller is sometimes referred to as the system management adapter.
All models of the server support up to four hot-swap hard disk drives. This hot-swap feature enables you to remove and replace hard disk drives without turning off the server.
The server has twelve hot-plug slots for PCI adapters.
With operating system support, you can replace failing hot-plug PCI adapters without turning off the server.
In addition, you can add PCI adapters in these slots without turning off the server, if this hot-add feature is supported by the operating system and the PCI adapter.
The redundant cooling and hot-swap capabilities of the fans in the server provide for continued operation if one of the fans fail. You can also replace a failing fan without turning off the server.
Note: Replace a fan that has failed as soon as convenient to maintain the redundant cooling capability of the server.
You can install an additional power supply to provide redundant power for the server, or if you have an optional redundant power supply installed, replace a failing power supply without turning off the server.
The memory bus in the server supports up to 8 GB of system memory. The memory controller provides error correcting code (ECC) support for up to 32 industry-standard, 3.3 V, 168-pin, single bank, 8-byte, dual in-line memory modules.
The ServerGuide CDs included with IBM Netfinity servers provide programs to help you set up the
server and install the network operating system (NOS). The ServerGuide program detects the
hardware options installed, and provides the correct configuration program and device drivers.
In addition, the ServerGuide CDs include a variety of application programs such as IBM Update Connector to help keep the server BIOS and microcode updated, and IBM Netfinity Manager for systems management.
For more information about the ServerGuide CDs, see the 'Software and Netfinity Manager Reference' section of this Server Library .
The server is designed to be cost-effective, powerful, and flexible.
It uses peripheral component interconnect (PCI) bus architectures to provide compatibility with a wide range of existing hardware devices and software applications.
As always, the IBM server meets stringent worldwide certifications for power, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and safety. Refer to the 'Help and Legal Information' section of this Server Library for additional information.
