Server Configuration

Server Configuration

The Configuration/Setup utility programs are stored in the basic input/output system  (BIOS) that comes with the server:

Two hardware configuration utility programs come with the server:

The built-in Configuration/Setup utility program configures system-board functions, such as serial and parallel port assignments, and the startup sequence for drives that are installed. This utility program also allows you to set passwords for starting up and accessing the Configuration/Setup utility program.

The built-in SCSI utility program, SCSISelect , allows you to configure the SCSI devices that are installed in the server. You can use SCSISelect to change default values, resolve configuration conflicts, and perform a low-level format on SCSI hard disk drives.

Before installing a new device or program, read the documentation that comes with it. Reading the instructions helps you to determine the steps required for installation and configuration. The following scenario provides a preview of the actions that might be required to configure the server.
  1.  Run the Configuration/Setup utility program and record the current configuration settings.
  2.  Set jumpers or switches on the server's system board. See 'System Board'
  3.  Set jumpers or switches on the device. See the device installation instructions.
  4.  Install the device in the server. If the device is an ISA adapter that is not a PnP (Plug and Play) device, use the ISA Legacy Resources Setup menu,  which is part of the Configuration/Setup utility program, to set the ISA legacy resources. These include memory, I/O ports, direct memory access (DMA), and  interrupt request levels (IRQs). See 'ISA Legacy Resources' for more information.
  5.  Install software programs. See the installation instructions shipped with the software.
  6.  Resolve configuration conflicts. See 'Server Configuration Conflicts'.
