HP Server ROM

HP ROM (Read Only Memory) is now digitally signed using HP\'s Corporate Signing Service. This signature is verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts to corrupt system ROM.

HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating system.

HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor. Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to assist in diagnosis.

HP\'s ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:

  • Processor and chipset status registers
  • System memory, memory map, and memory initialization
  • System hardware configuration (Integrated PCI devices and optional PCIe cards).
  • Customer-specific BIOS configuration (using the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).

NOTE: For further information, please refer to HP\'s RBSU (ROM based setup utility) user guide: www.hp.com/support/rbsu.

Server Power Cords All Pre-configured Models servers ship with a high voltage server to PDU power cord.
NOTE: HP ProLiant DL servers no longer ship standard with a 12-foot NEMA 5-15P to C13 power cord that connects to 110V US wall outlets in a home or office. ProLiant DL servers are primarily connected to power distribution units (PDUs) in data center racks and now ship standard with a PDU 6-foot C-14 to C13 power cord (A0K02A). If a user wishes to power a ProLiant DL server using a 110V receptacle (NEMA-15), the 6-foot NEMA 5-15 to C13 power cord must be ordered separately (AF556A). See Power Cords section for Worldwide Power Cord options.

Power Specifications To review typical system power ratings use the HP Power Advisor which is available via the online tool located at URL: www.hp.com/go/proliant-energy-efficient or www.hp.com/go/hppoweradvisor.

NOTE: Power Specification and Technical Content for supported power supplies can be found at: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14209_div/14209_div.html


Common Slot Power Supply

NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies inside a server must be exactly the same model. Mixing Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus certified power supplies is not supported.

 

HP\'s Common Slot (CS) power supplies allow for commonality of power supplies across a wide range of ProLiant and Integrity servers, as well as HP Storage solutions, and are designed to provide the highest power supply efficiency without degrading system performance. HP CS power supplies are tested by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and certified through the ECOS 80 Plus power supply program. HP CS power supply options provide efficiency ratings of up to 94% (80 Plus Platinum) and are available in three power output options - 460W, 750W, and 1200W - allowing the customer to "right-size" a power supply for their specific server configuration. All HP Common Slot power sources are UL, CE Mark Compliant, hot-plug and support redundant configurations.

NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies must be of the same output and efficiency rating. If non-matched power supplies are inserted you will get errors and operation will fail.

HP CS Platinum Plus power supplies are required when enabling HP\'s Intelligent Power Discovery (IPD) solution. IPD is the first technology to create an automated, energy-aware network between IT systems and facilities. This allows your company to reclaim millions of dollars in wasted power capacity and downtime costs across data centers. For more information on HP\'s IPD solution, go to www.hp.com/go/ipd.

It is highly recommended that you use the HP Power Advisor in defining the "Right-Size" power supply for your needs. HP Power Advisor can be accessed at: www.hp.com/go/hppoweradvisor.

NOTE: The 80 PLUS program is a unique forum that unites electric utilities, the computer industry, and consumers in an effort to bring energy efficient technology solutions to the marketplace. 80 Plus independently tests power supply efficiency and publicly posts the results on 80Plus.org.

Redundant Power: Optional (1+ 1 or n+n redundant) power supplies can be purchased through power supply option kits (see Power Supplies for part numbers).

NOTE: Power Specification and Technical Content for supported power supplies can be found at: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14209_div/14209_div.html
