  • Memory mirroring and memory rank sparing are not supported.

For best performance, consider the following:

  • Ensure the memory installed is at least the same speed as the memory bus of the selected processor.
  • Populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 8 or 16, so that all memory channels are used.
  • Populate memory channels so they all have the same total memory capacity.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC detection/correction
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • Patrol/Demand Scrubbing
  • DRAM Address Command Parity with Replay
  • DRAM Uncorrected ECC Error Retry
  • Post Package Repair

Internal storage

The SR645 supports 4x 3.5-inch or 12x 2.5-inch drive bays or a combination of drive bays, depending on the selected chassis and backplane configuration. The server also supports configurations without any drive bays if desired.

The two drive bay zones are as follows:

  • Front:
    • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 10x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
  • Rear:
    • 2x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays, or

Field upgrades

The SR645 is orderable without drive bays, allowing you to add a backplane, cabling and controllers as field upgrades. Rear backplane kits included cables, however for front drive bays, the backplane kits do not include cables and must be ordered separately. The following table summarizes the option part numbers you will need to order for each available drive configuration.

Tip: There is no upgrade path to add drive bays if the SR645 already has a backplane, without removing the existing backplane. For example, you cannot upgrade a 4x 2.5-inch drive bay to 8 bays without first removing the existing backplane.

When adding drive bays, you will also need to add the appropriate storage controller(s). Consult the tables in the Controller selections section to determine what controller sections are supported and what additional controllers you will need. Controllers are described in the Controllers for internal storage section.

RAID flash power module (supercap) support

If you plan to add one of the RAID adapters that includes a RAID flash power module (supercap) as a field upgrade, then you will also need to order a Supercap installation kit for the power module. For CTO orders, the components in the installation kit are automatically derived when you select the RAID adapter. The adapters that this applies to are as follows:

  • ThinkSystem RAID 930-8i 2GB Flash PCIe 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 930-16i 4GB Flash PCIe 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8i 4GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Internal Adapter

There are up to three possible locations for supercaps, depending on the front drive bays (2.5-inch or 3.5-inch) and the size of the processor heatsinks. Details are summarized in the following table. Location references are shown in the figure below.

Controllers for internal storage

The SR645 offers a variety of controller options for internal drives:

  • For 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives:
    • Onboard SATA ports (feature AVUX)
    • Onboard NVMe ports (feature BC4V)
    • RAID adapters and HBAs for SAS/SATA drives (PCIe slot-based)
    • RAID adapters and HBAs for SAS/SATA drives (cabled in a dedicated space)
  • For 7mm drive bays in the rear of the server (see the 7mm drives section)
    • SATA controller integrated into the 7mm drive bay enclosure
    • NVMe controller integrated into the 7mm drive bay enclosure
  • For M.2 drives internal to the server (see M.2 drives section)
    • SATA controller integrated on the M.2 SATA 2-Bay RAID Enablement Kit
    • NVMe controller integrated on the M.2 NVMe 2-Bay RAID Enablement Kit

As well as supporting RAID adapters and HBAs that install in a PCIe slot, the SR645 with 2.5-inch front drive bays supports a custom adapter that is mounted in the server and cabled to one of the onboard NVMe ports. The HBA 440-16i Internal Adapter and RAID 930-16i Internal Adapter are installed in a mount between the front 2.5-inch drive bays and the system fans, as shown in the following figure. The Internal Adapters are not supported with 3.5-inch front drives due to a lack of physical space.

Configuration notes:

  • Supercap support limits the number of RAID adapters installable: The table lists whether the adapter includes a power module (supercap) to power the flash memory. The server supports between 1 and 3 supercaps depending on the server configuration as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section. The number of supercaps supported also determines the maximum number of RAID adapters with flash that can be installed in the server.
  • Field upgrades: If you are adding a RAID adapter with supercap to the server as a field upgrade, you may need a supercap holder as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section.
  • 7mm drive support: The storage adapters listed in the table below do not provide connectivity to the 7mm drive bays that are optionally available at the rear of the server. The 7mm drives have their own independent RAID controller. See the 7mm drives section for details.
  • RAID 530-8i firmware: If you plan to use the RAID 530-8i in the server, it must have firmware 50.3.0-1032 or later applied before it can be used in the server. If the adapter you plan to use has older firmware (for example, you are using an adapter you previously purchased), it must first be upgrade by installing it in another server and upgrading the firmware there. For more information, see Support tip HT509177.

I/O expansion

The server supports a total of up to 3 PCIe 4.0 slots, all with rear access, plus a dedicated OCP 3.0 SFF slot for networking. Slot availability is based on riser selection. The use of slot 3 requires that both processors be installed.

  • Slot 1: PCIe 4.0 x16 LP (CPU 1)
  • Slot 2: PCIe 4.0 x16 LP or FHHL (CPU 1)
  • Slot 3: PCIe 4.0 x16 LP (CPU 2)

Slots 1 and 2 are also available as PCIe 3.0 adapter slots, using a lower-cost PCIe 3.0 riser, if desired.

Tip: For configurations with 2.5-inch front drive bays, an internal RAID adapter or HBA can be installed in a dedicated space and cabled to a PCIe 4.0 x8 connector, thereby freeing up a slot for other purposes.

The following figure shows the locations of the rear-accessible slots for each configuration selection. The OCP slot in located in the lower-left corner.

SR645 slots
Figure 12. SR645 slot configurations

The slots and riser cards are as follows:

  • Riser 1: Slots 1 & 2
    • Slot 1: Low Profile, PCIe 4.0 x16
    • Slot 2: Low Profile or FHHL, PCIe 4.0 x16 (not available in configuration C in the above figure)
  • Riser 2: Slot 3 (requires CPU 2)
    • Slot 3: Low Profile, PCIe 4.0 x16 (only available in configuration A)

The riser cards and slot brackets used to provide the above slot combinations in configure-to-order (CTO) configurations are listed in the following table.

Tip: It is also possible to not have any slot selections, in which case slot fillers will be derived in the configurator. Slots can be added later as field upgrades using option part numbers as listed in the Field upgrades table.

Use of the Mellanox HDR PCIe Aux Kit: The HDR Aux Kit (4C57A14179) enables a Socket Direct connection which allows the HDR adapter (4C57A15326) to have direct access to each of the two processors. Such a configuration ensures extremely low latency and CPU utilization in addition to higher network throughput. Socket Direct also maximizes AI and ML application performance, as it enables native GPU-Direct Technologies.

The following thermal requirement apply to ConnectX-6 adapters:

  • The high performance cooling fans must be installed. See the Cooling section for details.
  • The use of high-TDP processors may not be supported, depending on the configuration. See the Thermal restrictions by processor section for details.
  • The maximum ambient temperature supported is 35°C. If the adapter uses 100Gb Active Optical Cables (AOCs), the maximum ambient temperature supported is reduced to 30°C.

Examples of region-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.

If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spares parts.

Lenovo Service offerings are region-specific. Not all preconfigured support and upgrade options are available in every region. For information about Lenovo service upgrade offerings that are available in your region, refer to the following resources:
