  34. 34. 38© 2014 International Business Machines Corporation #5289/5290 2-port Async Adapter Update  The above adapter was announced as supported in the April 2014 announcement. However in mid May, testing found a problem which requires the adapter to not be supported on POWER8 servers. (The problem is an adapter problem, but the problem fortunately does not occur when used in the POWER6/7/7+ servers or their I/O drawers.)  As a result we will not be shipping any POWER8 servers which have a #5289/5290 adapter in their configuration and we will be removing #5289/#5290 from the POWER8 product structure. eConfig will be updated as soon as possible, but as of today still shows these adapters as valid options.  If you have a POWER8 proposal which uses one of these adapters, you should re-run the configuration without the adapter. No change is required for POWER6/7/7+ servers.  We are working to replace #5289/5290 with a future similar product, but it’s not ready to announce as of June.  Interim to that future product, if you need async ports:  For AIX/LInux ... The 4-port Async card #5785/#5277 is was announced/supported on the POWER8 on 10 June.  For IBM i ... The #2893/2894 communications adapter was always supported, but was made orderable for the POWER8 server on 10 June. If IBM i 7.2, consider a WAN over LAN option. As of 13 June July announce: #EN27/#EN28 2-port Async Adapter announced Equivalent to #5289/5290 – same function, same everything (except is supported on POWER8 servers) #EN27/EN28 support not announced on POWER7/POWER7+ servers. Continue to use #5289/5290 on POWER7+ servers

Ports take a PCIe slot 2 rear No feat code. Ports do not take a PCIe slot * For IBM i Unlike POWER7 or POWER6, IBM i communication to UPS is NOT via the serial port on POWER8 server. POWER8 connection to UPS for IBM i is over the USB-2 ports off the service processor card. A converter cable #ECCF should be used to convert USB port to 9-pin D-Shell connector which can be connected to the UPS cable. The cable can be attached after the server is powered up and running. Once the cable is plugged in, the service processor to which the USB-2 ports are attached senses the cable and its integrated cable type ID information and then sets the USB-2 port up for UPS communications. ** For AIX/Linux For attaching serial devices like a Async console which doesn’t have a RJ45 interface. Just like on POWER7/POWER7+, use #3930 converter cable to provide a 9-pin D-Shell connector. Depending on country, #ECCF availability varies
  44. 44. 49© 2014 International Business Machines Corporation ECCF Cable Details Late breaking news in late May 2014. Testing/approvals by different certification organizations around the world for the #ECCF cable didl not support a 10 June 2014 GA. Functionally the cable has been tested and is ready for GA. However, cables have to be approved by different organizations with different standards around the world. We project to have certifications/approvals in place for this cable on the following schedule. 18 June Canada/USA 25 June Australia/Japan 9 July European Union 16 July remainder of the world except Korea/Taiwan 6 Aug Korea/Taiwan The above projections are our current best estimates and are subject to change. The UPS communication does NOT impact the ability of a 9910 UPS to provide power to the server. But the cable allows status information to be provided to the , the server, alerting it to the fact its electrical power is coming from a UPS. Assuming you‘ve set up your server to do so, it can more gracefully shut down if the UPS batteries are running out before regular power sources are restored. This is the only UPS communication mechanism for IBM i. AIX/Linux can alternatively implement an Ethernet-based option where UPS-provided appliction code runs on the server and talks to the UPS. The cable can be attached without booting the server.
