Introduction to the Sun Blade X6220 Server Module
This chapter contains an overview of the Sun Blade X6220 server module and contains the following topics:
The Sun Blade X6220 server module is a 1U server designed to fit into the Sun Blade 6000 chassis system. The Sun Blade X6220 server module supports two 120W Opteron Rev F processors and embedded I/O that provides PCI Express, SAS, and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to the Sun Blade 6000 chassis midplane, and four SAS or SATA drive interfaces at the front of the server module.
Server monitoring is performed by a PowerPC based service processor (SP) module that plugs into the Sun Blade X6220 server module.
TABLE 1-1 summarizes the features of the server module.
This section contains illustrations that you can use to become familiar with the components of the Sun Blade X6220 server module.
FIGURE 1-1 shows the features of the front panel.
Caution - Do not use the NMI button unless you are instructed to do so by authorized Service personnel. The Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) switch sends an NMI order to the CPUs, which is used by Field Service for debugging activities at the request of Service personnel.
FIGURE 1-2 shows how to attach a dongle cable to the Sun Fire X6220 server module universal connection port (UCP). The dongle cable provides the following I/O connections for the server: VGA graphics, serial console to the server module service processor, and dual USB connectors for keyboard/mouse connections.
Caution - If you have a dongle cable connected to a server module, make sure to remove it before closing the door of a rack cabinet. The dongle might be damaged if it is not removed before the cabinet door is closed.
