Both Wired Network Modules provide the ability to daisy-chain the XCC management connections thereby reducing the number of ports you need in your management switches and reducing the number of switch ports needed for systems management. With this feature you can connect the first HX1021 to your management network and the adjacent HX1021 connects to the first HX1021. The third HX1021 can then connect to the second HX1021. Up to 7 servers can be connected in a daisy-chain configuration.

The two management ports of the Wired Network Modules can also be used to form a redundant pair. In such a configuration, they share the same IP address; redundancy is at the Layer 2 level.

The SFP+ ports in the SFP+ Wired Network Module support the transceivers listed in the following table.

Systems management

The HX1021 contains an integrated service processor, XClarity Controller (XCC), which provides advanced control, monitoring, and alerting functions. The XCC is based on the Pilot4 XE401 baseboard management controller (BMC) using a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 service processor.

Topics in this section:

Activation

Activation is an optional security feature of the HX1021 that ensures that the system delivered from the factory is only used by its intended recipient and that all data and applications remains secure. Activation is enabled on a factory order when the ThinkSystem SE350 Security Pack Enabled feature code (feature BLZ2) is selected as described in the Security section.

Enabled by default: Activation is enabled by default for new CTO orders. Activation can be disabled in the factory order as described in the Security section.

If Activation is enabled, the system is delivered in system lockdown and will require activation before operation. There are three ways the server can be activated:

  • Using a mobile device (iOS or Android) connect to the server to the mini-USB port on the front of the server and running the ThinkShield Edge Mobile Management app.
  • Connecting the system to the Internet via the XCC management port on the front of the server and accessing the ThinkShield Key Vault Portal from a web browser on another system.
  • In a disconnected mode, where neither a mobile device or an internet connection to the SE350 are available.

Details of the activation process are described in the following documents:

  • SE350 Activation Guide (2-page flyer that is included with the server)
  • SE350 Setup Guide, Chapter 4

These documents are available from:
https://thinksystem.lenovofiles.com/help/topic/SE350/pdf_files.html?cp=2_0_0

For further information on activation and the use of the ThinkShield Edge Mobile Management app, including videos and tours, see this support page:
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht509033

Local management

The HX1021 offers a front operator panel with key LED status indicators, as shown in the following figure.

HX1021 front operator panel
Figure 13. Front operator panel

The buttons on the front of the server:

  • Power button
  • Identification button - turns on the LED housed within the button as well as passing the signal to the XCC for display remotely in XClarity Administrator
  • NMI reset pinhole - sends a NMI signal to the processor thereby causing a blue-screen trap of the operating system

The LEDs on the front of the server are as follows:

  • Power LED (green) - indicated activation and power status, as follows:
    • Off - Server does not have power applied
    • Fast flash (4 times per second) - Either server has just had power applied and is not ready to be powered on yet, or the server has not been activated yet
    • Slow flash (once per second) - Server is ready to be powered on
    • On solid - Server is powered on
  • Identification LED (blue) - lights when the button is pressed or when the function is activated remotely in XClarity Controller.
  • System error LED (yellow)

The front of the server also houses an information pull-out tab (also known as the network access tag). See Figure 2 for the location. A label on the tab shows the network information (MAC address and other data) to remotely access the XCC service processor.

System status with XClarity Mobile

The HX1021 also supports local systems management using the XClarity Mobile app. The app includes a tethering function where you can connect your Android or iOS device to the server via the micro-USB port on the server.

You will need a mobile device with a supported operating system installed (iOS 12 or later, Android 5.0 or later), plus the USB charging cable that comes with your phone. You will also need the USB-to-mini-USB cable that ships with the system.

The steps to connect the mobile device are as follows:

  1. Connect the mobile device via your USB cable and the supplied USB-to-mini-USB cable to the HX1021's mini-USB port with the management symbol USB Management symbol
  2. In iOS or Android settings, enable Personal Hotspot or USB Tethering
  3. Launch the Lenovo XClarity Mobile app

Once connected you can see the following information:

  • Server status including error logs (read only, no login required)
  • Server management functions (XClarity login credentials required)

Remote management

Remote server management is provided through industry-standard interfaces:

  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3 (no SET commands; no SNMP v1)
  • Common Information Model (CIM-XML)
  • Representational State Transfer (REST) support
  • Redfish support (DMTF compliant)
  • Web browser - HTML 5-based browser interface (Java and ActiveX not required) using a responsive design (content optimized for device being used - laptop, tablet, phone) with NLS support

Security

The HX1021 offers a number of security features, both electronic and physical.

Security features of the HX1021
Figure 14. Security features of the H1021

Physical security features:

  • Intrusion detection

    The server has an intrusion switch that rests against the server cover. In the event that the cover is removed, the event is recorded and actions can be taken to secure the server. The intrusion switch is standard.

  • Motion detection

    The server has an onboard G-sensor accelerometer (disabled by default) that will generate an event if the server is moved. As part of the setup process in XCC, you specify the orientation of the server - desktop, ceiling, wall mount. You can also specify the sensitivity of the motion detection. The motion detection feature is standard.

  • Support for a Kensington lock and cable

    The server has a slot on the side of the server which a customer-supplied Kensington lock and cable can be attached to, to help prevent theft of the server.

  • Intrusion arm/disarm feature

    The Kensington cable slot can also double as an electronic switch to disarm the intrusion switch detection, so that authorized servicing of the hardware can be performed without triggering the security actions. Available as the Tamper Detection Kit, CTO only. The kit includes a Kensington lock (without cable) that is attached to the outside of the server.

    Note: This intrusion arm/disarm feature is not supported with the 1U or 2U rack enclosure mounting options, due to physical restrictions with the Kensington lock.

  • Front bezel with key lock

    Optional component that mounts on the front of the server that restricts access to networking connectors on the front of the server. See Mounting components for more information.

Electronic security features include:

  • Automatic actions on tamper detection

    In the event of an intrusion or movement, the server can be configured in XCC to perform actions, including server shutdown and disabling remote access to the XCC from the network ports (referred to as the BMC network bridge).

  • Self-encrypting (SED) M.2 drives that ensure data is secured when the drives are powered off
  • Administrator password and a power-on password in UEFI

The server is NIST SP 800-147B compliant.

Ordering information for the security components is listed in the following table.

SE350 Security Pack

The Security Pack is the collection of security and activation features of the HX1021:

  • Unique tamper detection (such as G-sensor) and Automatic actions on tamper detection
  • Enablement of local Self-encrypting (SED) authentication key (AK) management
  • Mandatory claiming and activation process to identify the owner of SE350 when the server is first delivered/powered on

For new configurations created in DCSC, these features will be enabled by default. To disable them, you will need to select the feature code in the Security tab in DCSC as listed in the following table.

Table 21. Feature codes to enable and disable the Security Pack
Feature code Description
BLZ2 ThinkSystem SE350 Security Pack Enabled (default)
BKFC ThinkSystem SE350 Security Pack Disabled

Notes:

  • The Security Pack features setting cannot be changed after the system leaves the factory. For example, if you select feature BLZ2 to enable the Security Pack features, then the system will require activation before it can be first used. Similarly, if your system was configured in the factory with Security Pack disabled, you cannot enable it at a later time.
  • Systems built/delivered prior to the availability of these feature codes will have all Security Pack features enabled. If neither of the feature codes is included in the order, the server be shipped with the Security Pack features enabled to maintain compatibility.
  • Customers can use the ThinkShield Portal to determine which of their systems have Security Pack enabled or disabled (you will see "Standard" if the system has Security Pack disabled).
