Storage Card > BIOS.Differences between Intel and Dell nodes • Different Chassis. storage management software • No tape drive on the node. 3 hard drives slots can be filled for customer use • Dump drive is 450GB instead of 300GB • All adapters are standard height face plates. • Screws that secure chassis to rails are under the front latches > Make sure it lines up with the notch during installation > Onboard NIC MAC address skip 1 address for each port – Ex: 00:26:B9:3A:FC:9E > 00:26:B9:3A:FC:A0 > 00:26:B9:3A:FC:A2 > 00:26:B9:3A:FC:A4 . 2 less than Intel • Only 4 adapter slots available. • More hard drive slots available. The tape drive will reside in the SWS • Only 4 onboard NICs available. drivers.

TMS uses 4GB DIMMs.66GHz.Differences between TMS and TPA • TPA node has 1 dump drive • TPA node runs 2.4GHz. • TPA node will always have 2 CPUs installed > TMS will possibly have blank heatsink installed > TMS will possibly have only A channel DIMMs installed • TPA node uses 8GB DIMM. TMS node runs 2. • TPA node will use LSI FC adapters • All TPA node onboard NIC ports are in use .

Tape Drive in SWS • Same DAT72 tape drive that is currently in the Intel TPA nodes • Plug and play. should function the same way it does in the Intel node • Will need to move dump to SWS similar to how dumps are moved between TPA nodes > Only the server management network is available to transfer dump files. > Roughly 12 minutes for 48GB dump file • SWS with tape drives will have a 3rd 146GB drive installed to help store dumps if needed .
