The Configuration/Setup Utility program - (NF 8500R - Type 8681)

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

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 from the Configuration/Setup 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 Configuration/Setup 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.

  -Attention- Maintaining a record of the configuration information is especially important if you need to move the Clear CMOS register contents jumper, which erases all configuration information
(see 'I/O function card jumpers' for details).

To start the Configuration/Setup Utility program:

  1.  Ensure that there is no diskette in the diskette drive.
     If the diskette drive contains a diskette, remove it.
  2.  Turn on the server and watch for the IBM logo screen.
     If the server is turned on already, shut down the operating system and restart the server.
  3.  After you start the server, several prompts appear on the IBM logo screen.
     When the prompt Press F1  for Configuration/Setup appears, press F1.

     The Configuration/Setup Utility main menu appears.
     For information on the menu, see 'Using the Configuration/Setup Utility main menu'.

    Note: If you enter the power-on password and an administrator (supervisor-level) password is also  set, a limited version of the menu appears.
     To see the full menu, you must restart the server and enter the administrator password when you  are prompted to enter a password.
     See 'System security' for additional information.
