The System Configuration Utility Program - Netfinity 5600 - Type 8664

The System Configuration 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 (for example, defining diskette types, and so on).

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

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

Always run the System Configuration Utility program if you add, remove, or relocate any hardware option, or if you receive an error message instructing you to do so.
Review this chapter and the information that comes with the option before making changes.
Also, record the current settings before making any changes.

To start the System Configuration Utility program:

  1.  Turn on the server and watch the screen.
  2.  When the message Press F1 for Configuration/Setup  appears, press F1.

    Note: If you enter the power-on password and an administrator (supervisor-level) password is also  set, a limited version of the menu appears.
