Configuration/Setup utility program

Configuration/Setup utility program

For most configurations, the server will operate using the default system settings. You need to change the settings only to resolve configuration conflicts or to enable or change device functions.

When you want or need to change the default settings, the Configuration/Setup Utility program provides a convenient way to display and change the settings.

After you run and exit the Configuration/Setup Utility program, configuration information is stored in electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM). While the server is powered off, the configuration information remains available for the next system startup.

Always run the Configuration/Setup Utility program if you receive an error message instructing you to do so. If you installed or removed SCSI devices, run the SCSISelect utility program). Review the information that comes with the option before making changes.

When you restart the server for the first time after working with most options, a message appears, indicating that a configuration change has occurred. You are then prompted to enter the Configuration/Setup Utility program to manually update the configuration settings or to confirm and save the settings that were automatically updated by the system programs.

After you change an option and restart the server, the following screen might appear.

 |                POST Startup Error(s)                          |
 |                                                               |
 | The following error(s) were detected when the system was      |

 | Exit Setup                                                    |

Note: Depending on the configuration changes that occurred, the error message that you see might be different from the one shown here.

If the preceding screen appears, select Continue until you reach the Configuration/Setup Utility program menu, then, go to Configuration/Setup utility program menus.

If the preceding screen does not appear, use the following procedures to access the Configuration/Setup Utility program menu.

To start the Configuration/Setup Utility program:

  1.  Power-on the server and watch the screen.  If the server is already turned on, power-off the  server, wait a few seconds until all in-use lights go  off, and then power the server back on. (Do not use Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart the server.)
  2.  When the message

     Press F1 to enter Configuration/Setup

     appears, press F1. The  Configuration/Setup Utility program menu appears.  For information about the menus, see Configuration/Setup utility program menus.

  1.  If an administrator password is not set, the  Configuration/Setup Utility program starts once  you complete the startup procedure.
  2.  If an administrator password is set, but a  power-on password is not set, you must enter the  administrator password to access the  Configuration/Setup Utility program.
  3.  If you have set both an administrator and a  power-on password, you can enter either one.  However, to change any settings in the  Configuration/Setup Utility program, you must  enter the administrator password. If you enter  the power-on password, you can view limited  information in the Configuration/Setup Utility  program, but you cannot change any settings.
  4.  If a configuration error occurs, a prompt appears  before the operating system starts (see Configuration conflicts).
