Configuration Overview (Netfinity 7000-M10 - Type 8680)
You play a key role in how the server allocates resources to organize and
interconnect hardware devices and software programs.
This allocation process is referred to as configuration. The steps required to configure the
server depend on the number and types of devices and programs that you install.
The server supports PCI adapters and SCSI devices.
Because of this flexibility, you can choose from among many adapters and devices.
In general, the greater the number and variety of hardware devices and software programs
that you install in the server, the more you will have to interact with the server and the
devices to correctly configure the system.
The server comes with the following hardware configuration programs:
- Configuration/Setup Utility
With the built-in Configuration/Setup Utility program, you can configure I/O functions,
such as serial and parallel port assignments, change interrupt request (IRQ) settings,
and change the startup sequence for drives that you install.
You also can use this program to set passwords for starting up the server and accessing the
Configuration/Setup Utility program.
- SCSISelect Utility
With the built-in SCSISelect Utility, you can configure the SCSI devices that you attach to the SCSI
controller. You can use SCSISelect to change default values, resolve configuration conflicts, and perform a
low-level format on a SCSI hard disk drive.
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 actions are typically, but not always, required to configure the server.
- Run the Configuration/Setup Utility program and record the current configuration settings.
- Set jumpers or switches on server components.
See 'Changing Jumper Positions' and
'I/O Function Card Jumpers'
- Set jumpers or switches on the device.
See the device installation instructions.
- Install the device in the server.
- Install software programs.
See the installation instructions that come with the software.
- Resolve configuration conflicts.
See 'Resolving Configuration Conflicts'.
