All of the following must be true for this ECA to be applied for purposes of replacing the Cable Management Arm Assembly:
All of the following must be true for this ECA to be applied for purposes of replacing four (4) rail mounting flanges:
* Supported EIA Rack:
A industry standard 19-inch rack cabinet that meets the EIA-310-D standards for depth of at least 30 inches and if equipped with a front door, has a rack rail to front door minimum clearance of 50.8mm (2 in.) which has square, round, or round threaded rail holes.
NOTE: The "Tower to Rack Conversion Kit" Option P/N 01K8020 (FRU P/N 03K8775) is NOT affected, and does NOT apply to this ECA.
The Cable Management Arm and the rail mounting flanges that are provided in the "Rack Accessory Kit" P/N 12J3777 which ships with the Netfinity 5500 server Type 8660 model 1RU, 1RX, 4RU have been improved by design and are packaged in FBM Kit FRU P/N 28L0631.
The change to the Cable Management Arm ensures that the Arm assembly folds within the rear confines of supported* EIA Racks.
The change to the rail mounting flanges allow mounting the Server in a industry standard 19-inch rack cabinet that meets the EIA-310-D standards for depth of at least 30 inches, and has a rack rail to front door minimum clearance of 50.8mm (2 in.) which has square, round, or round threaded rail holes.
Customers may request this ECA be applied if their System holds true to the "PHYSICAL CHECK" section of this document by calling IBM Serve at 1-800-IBM-SERV or by contacting the IBM HelpCenter for their GEO.
NOTE: The "Rack Accessory Kit" P/N 12J3777 shipped with a limited number of rack-mount Netfinity 5500 servers Type 8660 models 1RU, 1RX, 4RU. These model Servers presently ship with a new "Rack Accessory Kit" P/N 28L0645** or 28L0646** which include the improved design Cable Management Arm and rail mount flanges.
** P/N 28L0645 and 28L00646 are not Option or FRU part numbers.
If the System holds true to the "PHYSICAL CHECK" section of this document, then apply this ECA as follows:
Order FBM Kit FRU p/n28L0631 and install the new components (whichever apply) per the instruction sheets contained in the FBM Kit.
NOTE: DO NOT attempt to apply this ECA for purposes of upgrading a Tower Model Server to a Rack Model. The FBM kit only provides a few improved design components to the original "Rack Accessory Kit" P/N 12J3777 that shipped with the Netfinity 5500 server Rack Models.
IBM PSS CE's should record all time and parts to Service Code 33, ECA023, other Office 990. FBM Kit FRU P/N 28L0631 should be ordered code "B".
