Memory options

Lenovo DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal System x performance and throughput. System x memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint, System x memory automatically assumes the System x server warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support worldwide.

The x3630 M4 (E5-2400) supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to six DIMMs when one processor is installed, and up to 12 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has three memory channels, and there are two DIMMs per channel. The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • Mixing different types of memory (UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
  • Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is not supported.
  • The maximum number of ranks supported per one channel is eight (with the exception of Load Reduced DIMMs, where more than eight ranks are supported because one quad-rank LRDIMM provides the same electrical load on a memory bus as a single-rank RDIMM).
  • The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in a server depends on the number of processors (six DIMMs with one processor installed, 12 DIMMs with two processors installed)
  • All DIMMs in all processor memory channels operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
    • The memory speed supported by the specific processor.
    • The lowest of maximum operating speeds for the selected memory configuration that depends on the rated speed, operating voltage, and quantity of DIMMs per channel, as shown under the "Maximum operating speed" section in Table 5.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

Chipkill works only in independent channel mode (the default is operational mode) and supports only x4-based memory DIMMs.

If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per each processor, and a maximum of two pairs per processor), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.

If memory rank sparing is used, then two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank varies depending on the DIMMs installed.

Chipkill, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing modes are mutually exclusive. Only one operational memory mode can be enabled on a server, and it is a system-wide setting.

The following table shows the characteristics of the supported DIMMs. Table cells highlighted with a gray background indicate when the combination of DIMM voltage and the number of DIMMs per channel still allows the DIMMs to operate at a rated speed.

I/O expansion options

The server supports up to five PCIe slots with different riser cards installed into two riser sockets on the system planar (one riser socket supports the installation of one riser card). There are two types of riser cards: 2U risers and 1U risers. 2U risers are used in x3630 M4 models that do not have the rear HDD cage assembly (see Figure 4). 1U risers are used in models with the rear HDD cage assembly installed (see Figure 5). See Figure 4 and Figure 5 for slot locations and numbering.

Note: You cannot use 1U risers in models without the rear HDD cage. You cannot use 2U risers in models with the rear HDD cage assembly installed.

The slot form factors with 2U risers (models without the rear HDD cage assembly) are as follows:

  • Slot 1: PCIe 3.0 x16 (x8-wired), optional PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16-wired); full-height, full-length
  • Slot 2: PCIe 3.0 x16 (x8-wired); full-height, half-length (not present if optional x16-wired slot 1 riser is used)

Systems management

The server contains Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which provides advanced service-processor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM2 lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM2 also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM2 provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:

  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
  • Common Information Model (CIM)
  • Web browser

The optional Integrated Management Module Advanced Upgrade is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:

  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per pixel, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
  • Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
  • Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an operating system hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The following table lists the remote management option.

Table 21. Remote management option
Part number Feature code Description Maximum supported
90Y3901 A1ML Integrated Management Module Advanced Upgrade 1

In the default UEFI configuration, Ethernet port 2 is configured to be dedicated to remote access to the IMM2. If preferred, you can change the UEFI setting so that remote access to the IMM2 is via Port 1 and also accessible to the operating system. This setting is also useful if you do not have a dedicated management network. The following table shows this setting and its effect on the Ethernet ports.

Note: The IMM2 network must operate 100 Mbps full duplex. The IMM2 network connection does not support Gigabit Ethernet. In shared mode, the production Ethernet network on that port still operates at Gigabit speeds.

Light path diagnostics panel

The light path diagnostics panel allows system engineers and administrators to easily and quickly diagnose hardware problems on the System x servers. If a failure occurs, a light is illuminated on the front panel of the server (level 1 light path) to alert the systems administrator that there is a problem. The pop-out light path diagnostics panel (light path level 2) has a light against the failed subsystem. This light directs the engineer or administrator directly to the failed component, which also has an illuminated LED near it (light path level 3), for example, the DIMM error LED on the system board.

The x3630 M4 offers two variants of light path diagnostics: basic and advanced. All standard x3630 M4 models include basic functionality that provides light path levels 1 and 3. Advanced functionality is optional, and contains a pop-out panel that adds light path level 2. Storage-rich x3630 M4 servers (servers with 12 or 14 drive bays) only support basic light path.

The following two figures show the basic (level 1) light path level.

Basic (level 1) light path for models with eight drive bays
