Question about Intel Server Platform ISP4400 (SKODVBKHI)

1 Answer

Redundant to atx conversion

I recently got my hands on a Cacheflow 3000 server, real cheap and was wanting to remove the existing internals (N440BXserver board) and install my exsisting server board (SUPER P4DC6+ dual xenon board)... problem is its power config is 24 + 8 + 4 pin , and the Cachflow 3000 only has a 20 pin and a 14 pin (non atx) config.. does anyone know how to mod this to work with the xenon board.. as i have searched everywhere for a solution... Help..

    Sorry i forgot to tell the full story, here goes.. the casheflow 3000 is a complete server inclosure and as 2 x hot swap redundant psu's (apear to be at least 400w each) i am really trying to find a way to wire the blackplate to fire the system up..

    any ideas??

I have a feeling (although I haven't checked, not that I can find anywhere to do so :{{ ) that it's not just a matter of changing connectors - I think you may find the Cacheflow PSU will not supply enough 12V current for the new board's needs. Given it's age, that's highly likely.

You can get the spec for the Intel board here:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/n440bx/sb/cs-014870.htm

Assuming the PSU on the 3000 is designed for this board, no way will it ever support a P4 board, I'm afraid. If the 3000's PSU form factor is standard ATX then changing the PSU will sort the problem at minimal cost :)

Best of luck with it!

    I know the 3000 is a complete system which includes power supplies - but they have to produce the right voltages at the right currents to support the CPUs you are using. I'm pretty sure The CPU's on the new board you are using require far more 12V current than the 3000's PSU's are able to supply and 3.3V may also be a problem. In short, I doubt that just a connector change will make this setup work - you'd really need to change the PSU's for some that will support the newer Xeon's. You will need to check this by looking at the spec for the Intel MB at the link I gave before and then comparing that with the outputs of the 3000's PSU's - they should be noted on a label on each PSU. Something like the cacheflow may also have a diagram of MB connections inside its lid - so, assuming the V & A are in fact OK, you can find out what the PSU pinouts are and then map those to the standard AT 20/24 MB connector.

I have an external usb network adapter, and a built in on. they both work fine and pick up my router but seperately, and i want them to work as one so the signal will be stronger. how??


Hi,

What you are looking for is called Network Load Balancing or NLB.

Nice concept. Nice thought. But it is in no way easy or cheap.

NLB is normally available in Server Environments. Hardware NLB is the most common. I actually don't know any cheap software NLB that I can recommend. If you have the money and need, go after it.

Most cheap software based NLB actually simple do redundancy implementation (i.e. if one line is down, use another). There is no real load balancing to speed up as you want it.

Makes sense only businesses.

How many users can connect to CACHEFLOW CA-645 PROXY SERVER


A CacheFlow 645 will handle 750 requests/second. There is no absolute limit on users. It has to do with how much web surfing each of those users is doing. The 645 is the top of the line for the 600 series. This line does not provide a highly available solution unless you use multiple devices in a farm.

Fan flow error 1611 I/O


The ProLiant DL380 G3 server requires that both primary and redundant fans exist in a specific configuration in order to perform optimally. Any deviation from the specified configuration will cause one of the above error messages to occur and the internal Health LED to illuminate. In a ProLiant DL380 G3 server without the redundant fan option, the server will shut down after the error message is displayed. In a server with the redundant fan option, the internal Health LED will illuminate and the appropriate error message regarding fan redundancy will be displayed. The purpose of this document is to detail the required configuration for both primary and redundant fans.
DETAILS Both primary and redundant fans in the ProLiant DL380 G3 server must be configured to meet specific requirements in order to avoid the error messages above and in some instances, subsequent shutdown of the server.
All primary fan locations (2, 4, 5, 6 and 7) must be populated with a fan before the redundant fan locations (1, 3, or 8) are populated. If a primary fan location is left unpopulated, the server will display one or more of the error messages shown above. In addition, the internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) will display the status of the fans.
When the redundant fan option is used, all redundant fan locations must be populated. ProLiant servers do not support partial population of redundant fans. If any redundant fan location is populated without also populating all other redundant fan locations in the server, the fan system will not be fully redundant and one or more of the error messages above will be displayed.
Figure 1 below illustrates a ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy. The server airflow is divided into three zones: processor, I/O and power supply. Shared fans 4 and 7 each provide airflow for two zones. If a shared fan fails, the failure is experienced in both zones.
Figure 1: ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy
The internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) indicates failed or missing components. The internal Health LED should be observed to determine the status of the fans as follows:
RED LED: A red LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have not been met. Minimum fan requirements indicate that all primary fan slots must be populated with functioning fans.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan has failed.
AMBER LED: An amber LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have been met; however, requirements for redundant fan configuration have not been met. This means that all primary fan slots are populated with functioning fans, but at least one redundant fan has either failed or is missing.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan has failed.
Note: In a redundant fan configuration, the error message fan system not fully redundant will also be displayed at POST if any redundant fan slot is left unpopulated or if a redundant fan has failed.
