  About the Test Programs

The following is useful information about navigating through the test programs, as well as procedures for starting and stopping them. These programs are designed to test the PC Server 330 Type 8640 Models Pxx. Non-IBM products tested with these programs might present misleading error messages or unexpected system responses. If you want to test a non-IBM product, refer to the information that comes with that product.

You can start the diagnostics program from the Configuration/Setup utility program.
