Optional upgrade to XCC Enterprise enables the additional support for the mounting of remote media files (ISO and IMG image files), boot capture, and power capping.
  • Lenovo XClarity Administrator offers comprehensive hardware management tools that help to increase uptime, reduce costs and improve productivity through advanced server management capabilities.
  • UEFI-based Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager, accessible from F1 during boot, provides system inventory information, graphical UEFI Setup, platform update function, operating system installation function, and diagnostic functions.
  • Support for Lenovo XClarity Energy Manager which captures real-time power and temperature data from the server and provides automated controls to lower energy costs.
  • An integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) enables improved setup, configuration, and updates, and simplifies error handling.
  • Support for industry standard management protocols, IPMI 2.0, SNMP 3.0, Redfish REST API, serial console via IPMI
  • An integrated hardware Trusted Platform Module (TPM) supporting TPM 2.0 enables advanced cryptographic functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • Administrator and power-on passwords help protect from unauthorized access to the server.

Internal storage

Internal storage configurations of the MX 1U systems are as follows.

In this section:

MX3330-H and MX3331-H Hybrid systems

Drive bay configurations are as follows:

  • Front drive bays - choice of:
    • 10x 2.5-inch AnyBay hot-swap drive bays
    • 4x 3.5-inch SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
  • Rear drive bays - choice of:
    • 2x 2.5-inch SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
    • 2x 2.5-inch NVMe hot-swap drive bays
  • Rear bays are required for 3.5-inch front drive configurations

These configurations are shown in the following figure.

MX3330-H and MX3331-H drive bays
Figure 6. MX3330-H and MX3331-H drive bays

For OS boot functionality, the server supports either:

  • One or two M.2 SATA drives, installed in an M.2 adapter internal to the server.
  • One or two 7mm hot-swap SATA or NVMe drives, accessible from the rear of the server. Not supported with configurations with 3.5-inch front drives

Configuration rules are as follows:

  • All Hybrid storage configurations are two-tier, cache tier and capacity tier
  • Drive type choices are as follows:
    • HDDs for capacity
    • SAS/SATA or NVMe SSDs for cache
  • For cache drives, a minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 drives is required
  • For configurations with 3.5-inch front drives, capacity drives are installed in the front bay and cache drives are installed in rear 2.5-inch bays
  • The total cache storage must be a minimum of 10% of the total capacity storage

MX3330-F and MX3331-F All-flash systems

Drive bay configurations are as follows:

  • Front drive bays - choice of:

    • 16x EDSFF NVMe hot-swap drive bays
  • Rear drive bays - choice of:
    • 2x 2.5-inch SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
    • 2x 2.5-inch NVMe hot-swap drive bays

These configurations are shown in the following figure.

MX3330-F and MX3331-F drive bays
Figure 7. MX3330-F and MX3331-F drive bays

For OS boot functionality, the server supports either:

  • One or two M.2 SATA drives, installed in an M.2 adapter internal to the server.
  • One or two 7mm hot-swap SATA or NVMe drives, accessible from the rear of the server

Configuration rules are as follows:

  • All-flash configurations can be single-tier or two-tier storage:
    • To select a single-tier configuration in DCSC, select the drive you wish to use (from either the capacity or cache lists) and ensure that all other drive selections are set to None
    • To select a two-tier configuration in DCSC, select a quantity of cache drives and a quantity of capacity drives
  • Drive choices for a single-tier configuration are as follows:
    • Drives can be either SAS SSDs, SATA SDDs or NVMe SSDs (includes EDSFF)
    • All drives must be the same feature code
    • A minimum of 4 drives is required
  • Drive choices for a two-tier configuration are as follows:
    • The following combinations are supported:
      • SAS SSD for cache and SAS/SATA SSD for capacity
      • NVMe SSD for both cache & capacity
      • NVMe SSD for cache and SAS/SATA SSD for capacity
    • All cache drives must be the same feature code and all capacity drives must be the same feature code
    • A minimum of 2 cache drives and a minimum of 4 capacity drives is required
    • The total cache storage must be a minimum of 10% of the total capacity storage

Software

The MX Appliances include the preloaded Azure Stack HCI operating system only and requires activation via a CSP such as Lenovo Cloud Marketplace, with the option to purchase a Windows Server 2019 Datacenter license if unlimited guest OS VMs are desired.

The MX Certified Nodes can optionally have Windows Server 2019 Datacenter or Azure Stack HCI OS preinstalled. Customers can use existing Windows Server Datacenter software licenses, or they can purchase new software licenses from Lenovo or Microsoft. If the licenses are purchased from Lenovo, Windows Server can be factory-installed or shipped in the box with the Certified Node for the installation at the customer site.

The following table lists the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter software options that are available for selection from Lenovo for Certified Nodes.

Table 18. Windows Server Datacenter software selection options (Certified Nodes only)
Feature code Description
Windows Server 2019 Datacenter (Factory installed)
B6P2 Windows Server Datacenter 2019 for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI - English (factory installed)
Windows Server 2019 Datacenter (Not preinstalled)
B6NY Windows Server Datacenter 2019 for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI - Multilanguage (not pre-installed)

B6P1 Windows Server Datacenter 2019 for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI - Traditional Chinese (not pre-installed)
B6NZ Windows Server Datacenter 2019 for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI - Japanese (not pre-installed)

Configuration notes:

  • The selection of Windows Server software licenses is optional.
  • The quantity of core-based licenses should be sufficient to cover all processor cores in the system.

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 spare 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:
