EISA Configuration Menu Selections

EISA Configuration Menu Selections

When you start the EISA Configuration Diskette, an introductory screen appears. Press Y at the prompt. After you press Enter, the main menu, Steps in configuring the computer, appears. The EISA Configuration program main menu contains five steps:

Step 1: Important EISA configuration information

This step provides information about the differences between the ISA configuration process and the EISA configuration process.

Step 2: Add or remove boards

If the server is configured correctly, this step provides a list of the devices installed in the expansion slots. The Add choice allows you to add ISA devices to the configuration. If EISA adapters are installed in the server, and you have not copied the .CFG  file to the EISA Configuration Diskette, you are prompted to insert the adapter's configuration diskette into the diskette drive. The .CFG  file is copied to the diskette. If the adapter's .CFG  file is copied to the EISA Configuration Diskette before starting the diskette, and the adapter is installed in the server, EISA devices are added automatically.

Step 3: View or edit details

After adding EISA or ISA adapters in Step 2, use the Edit selection of this step to configure them. Use the Edit Resources selection of this step for complex configurations. If you change a setting in this step, you might have to change a switch or jumper setting on the system board or on a device.

NOTE: You can view the settings for PCI devices, but you cannot change them through the EISA Configuration utility program. To change settings for PCI devices, see 'PCI Bus Control'.

Step 4: Examine switches or print report

After Steps 1 and 2 have been completed correctly, this step displays the correct switch and jumper settings for the installed devices that have switches and jumpers. Also, you can choose to print a system configuration report.

Step 5: Save and exit

This step allows you to save the configuration or to discard the changes before exiting the program.

Use the Up Arrow (  ) or Down Arrow (  ) key to highlight your selection, then press Enter to make your selection. To help you track your progress, a checkmark (OK) appears on the main menu next to the completed steps.

You can access help information through:

Recording EISA Configuration Settings

Record the configuration settings you made in Step 3: View or edit details and Step 4: Examine switches or print report on a separate sheet and store it in a safe place for future reference. If a printer is attached to the server, you can use the Print Screen key to print these settings. The settings are helpful when you install additional options. Also, record the new settings each time you make changes. Be sure to record the current configuration settings for the user.
