Using the Tool Bar
Descriptions of the quick-path icons provided on the Tool Bar are as follows:
Save the Configuration Event Log: This icon appears in the Information mode.
When you select this icon, a pop-up window appears and lets you specify a file name and path for the ServeRAID Configuration Event Log.
Note: This feature currently is not supported on IBM Netfinity 3000, 3500, 5000, and 5500 servers; however, IBM intends to support this feature on these server models in the near future.
The updated BIOS code needed to support this feature will be made available on the World Wide Web.
(See 'IBM ServeRAID Configuration CD and Diskettes' for the instructions needed to access the IBM support page.)
Configure the ServeRAID Controller: This icon appears in the Information mode.
When you select this icon, the configuration program switches from the Information mode to the Configuration mode.
A message will appear at the bottom of the Main Panel if no Ready drives are available for the selected ServeRAID controller.
If this occurs, you can click on the Cancel button to return to the Information mode or select another ServeRAID controller.
Configure for Clustering: This icon appears in the Information mode.
You can select this icon to define the ServeRAID controller for use in a dual-node, high-availability, shared-disk cluster environment.
Detailed instructions for using the clustering features are provided in the 'IBM Netfinity High-Availability Cluster Solution Installation and User's Guide'.
You can obtain a copy of this manual at the following address on the World Wide Web:
Scan for New or Removed Ready Drives: This icon appears in the Information mode.
When you select a ServeRAID controller from the Main Tree and click on this icon, the configuration program will scan the individual channel, or all channels, on the controller for new or removed Ready drives.
Use this feature whenever you physically change the configuration of the ServeRAID subsystem, for example, when you physically install or remove one or more SCSI drives.
Create an Array: This icon appears in the Information mode if you select a controller from the
Main Tree and that controller has Ready drives available.
Help: This icon appears in both the Information and Configuration modes.
Select this icon to access the online ServeRAID Help facility.
Task-oriented Help is available from many of the pop-up windows that appear during the configuration process; and, you also can obtain context-sensitive Help by selecting an item and then pressing the F1 key.
