The server supports single- and dual-processor operation. With two processors installed, the server supports boot functions through the processor installed in processor socket 1.
The server PPMs are DC-to-DC converters that provide the proper power to each processor. Each PPM must be installed in the slot adjacent to its processor.
CAUTION: Always wear an antistatic wrist strap when working inside the server.
CAUTION: To prevent possible server malfunction, do not mix processors of different types.
IMPORTANT: If upgrading processor speed, update the system ROM before installing the processor.
IMPORTANT: Processor socket 1 and PPM slot 1 must be populated at all times or the server does not function properly.
IMPORTANT: Always install a PPM when you install a processor. The system fails to boot if the PPM is missing.
To install a processor:
CAUTION: Failure to completely open the processor locking lever prevents the processor from seating during installation, leading to hardware damage.
CAUTION: To prevent possible server malfunction or damage to the equipment, be sure to align the processor pins with the corresponding holes in the socket.
IMPORTANT: The key on the processor must be aligned with the keyed corner of the processor socket.
CAUTION: To prevent possible server malfunction or damage to the equipment, be sure to completely close the processor locking lever.
NOTE: The appearance of compatible PPMs may vary.
