Configuration Overview

Configuration Overview

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 several types of adapters and SCSI devices. Because of this flexibility, you can choose from among many adapters and devices that comply with any of the following standards:

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 utility programs:

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.

  1.  Run the Configuration/Setup Utility program and  record the current configuration settings.
  2.  Set jumpers or switches on the server system board.  See System Board Jumpers  (8660 / 8662).
  3.  Set jumpers or switches on the device.  See the device installation instructions.
  4.  Install the device in the server.  If you install an ISA adapter that is not a Plug and  Play device, select the Plug and Play choice on the  main menu of the Configuration/Setup Utility program  to assign the ISA legacy resources. See 'Plug and Play' for more information.
  5.  Install software programs.  See the installation instructions that come with the  software.
  6.  Resolve configuration conflicts.  See 'Resolving Configuration Conflicts'.
