SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
B.1 One Key Recovery Introduction
The IEI one key recovery is an easy-to-use front end for the Norton Ghost system backup
and recovery tool. This tool provides quick and easy shortcuts for creating a backup and
reverting to that backup or reverting to the factory default settings.
NOTE:
The latest One Key Recovery software provides an auto recovery
function that allows a system running Microsoft Windows OS to
automatically restore from the factory default image after encountering
a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or a hang for around 10 minutes.
Please refer to Section B.3 for the detailed setup procedure.
The IEI One Key Recovery tool menu is shown below.
Figure B-1: IEI One Key Recovery Tool Menu
Prior to using the IEI One Key Recovery tool (as shown in Figure B-1) to backup or
79
restore Windows system, five setup procedures are required.
1. Hardware and BIOS setup (see Section B.2.1)
79
2. Create partitions (see Section B.2.2)
79
3. Install operating system, drivers and system applications (see Section B.2.3)
79
4. Build-up recovery partition (see Section B.2.4)
79
5. Create factory default image (see Section B.2.5)

NOTE:
The recovery CD can only be used with IEI products. The software will
fail to run and a warning message will appear when used on non-IEI
hardware.
To create the system backup, the main storage device must be split into two partitions
(three partitions for Linux). The first partition will be for the operating system, while the
second partition will be invisible to the operating system and contain the backup made by
the one key recovery software.
The partition created for recovery images must be big enough to contain both the factory
default image and the user backup image. The size must be calculated before creating the
Page 131

B.6 Restore Systems from a Linux Server through LAN
The One Key Recovery allows a client system to automatically restore to a factory default
image saved in a Linux system (the server) through LAN connectivity after encountering a
Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or a hang for around 10 minutes. To be able to use this
function, the client system and the Linux system MUST reside in the same domain.
CAUTION:
The supported client OS includes:
ƒ
Windows 2000
ƒ
Windows 7
ƒ
Windows XP
ƒ
Windows XP Embedded
ƒ
Windows Vista
ƒ
Windows Embedded Standard 7
Prior to restoring client systems from a Linux server, a few setup procedures are required.
Step 1: Configure DHCP server settings
Step 2: Configure TFTP settings
Step 3: Configure One Key Recovery server settings
Step 4: Start DHCP, TFTP and HTTP
Step 5: Create a shared directory
Step 6: Setup a client system for auto recovery
The detailed descriptions are described in the following sections. In this document, two
types of Linux OS are used as examples to explain the configuration process – CentOS
5.5 (Kernel 2.6.18) and Debian 5.0.7 (Kernel 2.6.26).
Page 160
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
B.6.1 Configure DHCP Server Settings
Step 1: Install the DHCP
#yum install dhcp (CentOS, commands marked in red)
#apt-get install dhcp3-server (Debian, commands marked in blue)
Step 2: Confirm the operating system default settings: dhcpd.conf.
CentOS
Use the following command to show the DHCP server sample location:
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
The DHCP server sample location is shown as below:
Use the following command to copy the DHCP server sample to etc/dhcpd.conf:
#cp /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/dhcpd.conf.sample /etc/dhcpd.conf
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
Debian
#vi /etc/dhcpd.conf
Edit “/etc/dhcpd.conf” for your environment. For example, add
next-server PXE server IP address;
Page 161
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
filename “pxelinux.0”;
B.6.2 Configure TFTP Settings
Step 1: Install the tftp, httpd and syslinux.
#yum install tftp-server httpd syslinux (CentOS)
#apt-get install tftpd-hpa xinetd syslinux (Debian)
Step 2: Enable the TFTP server by editing the “/etc/xinetd.d/tftp” file and make it use the
remap file. The “-vvv” is optional but it could definitely help on getting more
information while running the remap file. For example:
CentOS
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
Modify:
disable = no
server_args = -s /tftpboot –m /tftpboot/tftpd.remap -vvv
Page 162
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
Debian
Replace the TFTP settings from “inetd” to “xinetd” and annotate the “inetd” by
adding “#”.
#vi /etc/inetd.conf
Modify: #tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin....... (as shown below)
#vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
B.6.3 Configure One Key Recovery Server Settings
Step 1: Copy the Utility/RECOVERYR10.TAR.BZ2 package from the One Key
Recovery CD to the system (server side).
Step 2: Extract the recovery package to /.
#cp RecoveryR10.tar.bz2 /
#cd /
#tar –xvjf RecoveryR10.tar.bz2
Step 3: Copy “pxelinux.0” from “syslinux” and install to “/tftboot”.
#cp /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0 /tftpboot/
Page 163
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
B.6.4 Start the DHCP, TFTP and HTTP
Start the DHCP, TFTP and HTTP. For example:
CentOS
#service xinetd restart
#service httpd restart
#service dhcpd restart
Debian
#/etc/init.d/xinetd reload
#/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
#/etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart
B.6.5 Create Shared Directory
Step 1: Install the samba.
#yum install samba
Step 2: Create a shared directory for the factory default image.
#mkdir /share
#cd /share
#mkdir /image
#cp iei.gho /image
WARNING:
The file name of the factory default image must be iei.gho.
Step 3: Confirm the operating system default settings: smb.conf.
#vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
Page 164
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
Modify:
[image]
comment = One Key Recovery
path = /share/image
browseable = yes
writable = yes
public = yes
create mask = 0644
directory mask = 0755
Step 4: Edit “/etc/samba/smb.conf” for your environment. For example:
Step 5: Modify the hostname
#vi /etc/hostname
Modify: RecoveryServer
B.6.6 Setup a Client System for Auto Recovery
Step 1: Disable the automatically restart function before creating the factory
default image. Go to: My Computer Æ Properties Æ Advanced. Click the
Settings button of Startup and Recovery. Deselect “Automatically restart”. Click
OK to save the settings and exit. (See Figure B-23)
Page 165
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card

SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. Contact IEI support
or visit the IEI website for specific drivers for other operating systems.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMIs or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer.
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table E-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. When the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.

Manager
Page 181
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
F.1 Introduction
The SPCIE-C2160 can provide data protection for serial ATA (SATA) disks via the Intel®
Matrix Storage Manager using one of three fault-tolerant RAID levels: RAID 1, 5 or 10.
When using two hard drives, matrix RAID allows RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions to be
combined, where critical files can be stored on RAID 1, and RAID 0 can be used for
non-critical items such as software. RAID 5 and RAID 0 can be combined to provide
higher performance, capacity, and fault tolerance.
CAUTION!
A configured RAID volume (which may consist of multiple hard drives)
appears to an operating system as a contingent storage space. The
operating system will not be able to distinguish the physical disk drives
contained in a RAID configuration.
F.1.1 Precautions
One key benefit a RAID configuration brings is that a single hard drive can fail within a
RAID array without damaging data. With RAID1 array, a failed drive can be replaced and
the RAID configuration restored.
WARNING!
Irrecoverable data loss occurs if a working drive is removed when
trying to remove a failed drive. It is strongly recommended to mark the
physical connections of all SATA disk drives. Drive locations can be
identified by attaching stickers to the drive bays. If a drive member of a
RAID array should fail, the failed drive can then be correctly identified.
Page 182
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
CAUTION!
Do not accidentally disconnect the SATA drive cables. Carefully route
the cables within the chassis to avoid system down time.
F.2 Features and Benefits
ƒ
Supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 10
ƒ
Supports connectivity to two or more disk drives
ƒ
Supported Operating Systems include: Windows XP, Windows Server 2003,
Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7
F.3 Accessing the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager
To access the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: Connect SATA drives to the system. Connect two or more SATA drives to the
system. Make sure the drives have the same capacity, are the same type and
have the same speed.
NOTE:
Make sure the SATA drives are EXACTLY the same when they are
configured in a RAID configuration. If they are not the same size, disk
drive capacity is sacrificed and overall performance affected.
Step 2: Enable SATA drives in BIOS. Start the computer and access the BIOS setup
program. Enable RAID support for all SATA devices. Refer to the applicable
BIOS configuration section in this user manual.
Step 3: Configure “Option ROM Messages” BIOS option to Force BIOS. This is to
allow the “Press <CTRL+I> to enter Configuration Utility……” message to
Page 183
SPCIE-C2160 PICMG 1.3 CPU Card
appear during the POST. Refer to the applicable BIOS configuration section in
this user manual.
Step 4: Save and Exit BIOS. After the SATA support option is enabled, save and exit
the BIOS.
Step 5: Reboot the system. Reboot the system after saving and exiting the BIOS.
Step 6: Press Ctrl+I. during the system boot process. Press Ctrl+I when prompted to
enter the RAID configuration software.
Step 7: Configure the RAID settings. Use the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager to
configure the RAID array. Brief descriptions of configuration options are given
below.Step0:
F.4 Installing the Operating System to the RAID Array
To install the operating system to the RAID array some extra steps are necessary during
the installation process.
Step 1: Prepare a RAID driver floppy disk on another computer. If installing on the
RAID array a RAID driver floppy disk must be made. The RAID driver floppy disk
utility is on the CD in the “5-SATA/Floppy Configuration Utility” folder. The floppy
disk will be formatted and the drivers installed.
Step 2: Restart the system with a floppy drive attached. Attach a normal floppy drive
or USB floppy drive to the system.
Step 3: Press F6 when prompted. During the installation process, Windows OS
prompts the user to press F6 to install the RAID drivers. Press F6 and choose
from the drivers on the floppy disk.
Step 4: Install the OS. Continue with OS installation as usual.Step0:
