Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
General checkout
The server diagnostic programs are stored in upgradable read-only memory (ROM)
on the system bsoard. These programs are the primary method of testing the major
components of the server: The system board, Ethernet controller, video controller,
RAM, keyboard, mouse (pointing device), diskette drive, serial ports, hard drives,
and parallel port. You can also use them to test some external devices. See
“Diagnostic programs and error messages” on page 12.
Also, if you cannot determine whether a problem is caused by the hardware or by
the software, you can run the diagnostic programs to confirm that the hardware is
working properly.
When you run the diagnostic programs, a single problem might cause several error
messages. When this occurs, work to correct the cause of the first error message.
After the cause of the first error message is corrected, the other error messages
might not occur the next time you run the test.
A failed system might be part of a shared DASD cluster (two or more systems
sharing the same external storage device(s)). Prior to running diagnostics, verify
that the failing system is not part of a shared DASD cluster.
A system might be part of a cluster if:
v The customer identifies the system as part of a cluster.
v One or more external storage units are attached to the system and at least one of
the attached storage units is additionally attached to another system or
unidentifiable source.
v One or more systems are located near the failing system.
If the failing system is suspected to be part of a shared DASD cluster, all
diagnostic tests can be run except diagnostic tests which test the storage unit
(DASD residing in the storage unit) or the storage adapter attached to the storage
unit.
Notes:
1. For systems that are part of a shared DASD cluster, run one test at a time in
looped mode. Do not run all tests in looped mode, as this could enable the
DASD diagnostic tests.
2. If multiple error codes are displayed, diagnose the first error code displayed.
3. If the computer hangs with a POST error, go to the “Symptom-to-FRU index”
on page 119.
4. If the computer hangs and no error is displayed, go to “Undetermined
problems” on page 142.
5. Power supply problems, see “Symptom-to-FRU index” on page 119.
6. Safety information, see “Safety information” on page 152.
7. For intermittent problems, check the error log; see “POST error messages” on
page 12.
1. IS THE SYSTEM PART OF A CLUSTER?
YES. Schedule maintenance with the customer. Shut down all systems related to
the cluster. Run storage test.
NO. Go to step 2.

2. THE SYSTEM IS NOT PART OF A CLUSTER.
v Power-off the computer and all external devices.
v Check all cables and power cords.
v Set all display controls to the middle position.
v Power-on all external devices.
v Power-on the computer.
v Record any POST error messages displayed on the screen. If an error is
displayed, look up the first error in the “POST error codes” on page 131.
v Check the information LED panel System Error LED; if on, see “Diagnostic
panel LEDs” on page 122.
v Check the System Error Log. If an error was recorded by the system, see
“Symptom-to-FRU index” on page 119.
v Start the Diagnostic Programs. See “Diagnostic programs and error
messages” on page 12.
v Check for the following responses:
a. One beep.
b. Readable instructions or the Main Menu.
3. DID YOU RECEIVE BOTH OF THE CORRECT RESPONSES?
NO. Find the failure symptom in “Symptom-to-FRU index” on page 119.
YES. Run the Diagnostic Programs. If necessary, refer to “Diagnostic programs and
error messages” on page 12.
If you receive an error, go to “Symptom-to-FRU index” on page 119.
If the diagnostics completed successfully and you still suspect a problem, see
“Undetermined problems” on page 142.

Server features
The unique design of the server takes advantage of advancements in symmetric
multiprocessing (SMP), data storage, and memory management. The server
combines:
v Impressive performance using an innovative approach to SMP
The server supports up to four Pentium III Xeon microprocessors. The server
comes with one microprocessor installed; you can install additional
microprocessors to enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
v Large data-storage and hot-swap capabilities
All models of the server support up to 10 slim-high or 7 half-high hot-swap
hard disk drives. This hot-swap feature enables you to remove and replace hard
disk drives without turning off the server.
v Large system memory
The memory bus in the server supports up to 16 GB of system memory. The
memory controller provides error correcting code (ECC) support for up to 16
industry-standard, 3.3 V, 168-pin, 8-byte, registered, dual inline memory modules
(DIMMs).
v System-management capabilities
The server comes with a Netfinity Advanced System Management Processor on
the system board. This processor, in conjunction with the Netfinity Manager
software provided on the ServerGuide CDs, enables you to manage the functions
of the server locally and remotely. The Netfinity Advanced System Management
Processor also provides system monitoring, event recording, and dial-out alert
capability.
Note: The Netfinity Advanced System Management Processor is sometimes
referred to as the service processor.
v Integrated network environment support
The server comes with an Ethernet controller. This Ethernet controller on the
system board has an interface for connecting to 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps networks.
The server automatically selects between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX. The
controller provides full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous
transmission and reception of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN).
v Redundant network-interface card
The addition of an optional, redundant network interface card (NIC) provides a
failover capability to a redundant Ethernet connection. If a problem occurs with
the primary Ethernet connection, all Ethernet traffic associated with this primary
connection is automatically switched to the redundant NIC. This switching
occurs without data loss and without user intervention.
v IBM ServerGuide CDs
The ServerGuide CDs included with the Netfinity server provide programs to
help you set up the server and install the network operating system (NOS). The
ServerGuide program detects the hardware options that are installed, and
provides the correct configuration programs and device drivers. In addition, the
ServerGuide CDs include a variety of application programs for the server.

This section provides basic troubleshooting information to help you resolve some
common problems that might occur with the server.
If you cannot locate and correct the problem using the information in this section,
refer to “Symptom-to-FRU index” on page 119 for more information.
Diagnostic tools overview
The following tools are available to help you identify and resolve hardware-related
problems:
v POST beep codes, error messages, and error logs
The power-on self-test (POST) generates beep codes and messages to indicate
successful test completion or the detection of a problem. See “POST” for more
information.
v Diagnostic programs and error messages
The server diagnostic programs are stored in upgradable read-only memory
(ROM) on the system board. These programs are the primary method of testing
the major components of the server. See “Diagnostic programs and error
messages” on page 12 for more information.
v Light path diagnostics
Your server has light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help you identify problems with
server components. These LEDs are part of the light-path diagnostics that are
built into the server. By following the path of lights, you can quickly identify the
type of system error that occurred. See “Light path diagnostics” on page 15 for
more information.
v Error symptoms
These charts list problem symptoms, along with suggested steps to correct the
problems. See the “Diagnosing errors” on page 22 for more information.
POST
When you turn on the server, it performs a series of tests to check the operation of
server components and some of the options installed in the server. This series of
tests is called the power-on self-test or POST.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 1999
11
If POST finishes without detecting any problems, a single beep sounds, the first
screen of the operating system or application program appears, and the System
POST Complete (OK) light is illuminated on the operator information panel.
If POST detects a problem, more than one beep sounds and an error message
appears on the screen. See “POST beep codes” and “POST error messages” for
more information.
Notes:
1. If you have a power-on password or administrator password set, you must
type the password and press Enter, when prompted, before POST will continue.
2. A single problem might cause several error messages. When this occurs, work
to correct the cause of the first error message. After you correct the cause of the
first error message, the other error messages usually will not occur the next
time you run the test.
POST beep codes
POST generates beep codes to indicate successful completion or the detection of a
problem.
v One beep indicates the successful completion of POST.
v More than one beep indicates that POST detected a problem. For more
information, see “Beep symptoms” on page 119.
POST error messages
POST error messages occur during startup when POST finds a problem with the
hardware or detects a change in the hardware configuration. For a list of POST
errors, see “POST error codes” on page 131.
Event/error logs
The POST error log contains the three most recent error codes and messages that
the system generated during POST. The System Event/Error Log contains all error
messages issued during POST and all system status messages from the Netfinity
Advanced System Management Processor.
To view the contents of the error logs, start the Configuration/Setup Utility
program; then, select Event/Error Logsfrom the main menu.
Small computer system interface messages
If you receive a SCSI error message, see “SCSI error codes” on page 138.
Note: If the server does not have a hard disk drive, ignore any message that
indicates that the BIOS is not installed.
You will get these messages only when running the SCSISelect Utility.
Diagnostic programs and error messages
The server diagnostic programs are stored in upgradable read-only memory (ROM)
on the system board. These programs are the primary method of testing the major
components of the server.
12
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
Diagnostic error messages indicate that a problem exists; they are not intended to
be used to identify a failing part. Troubleshooting and servicing of complex
problems that are indicated by error messages should be performed by trained
service personnel.
Sometimes the first error to occur causes additional errors. In this case, the server
displays more than one error message. Always follow the suggested action
instructions for the first error message that appears.
The following sections contain the error codes that might appear in the detailed
test log and summary log when running the diagnostic programs.
The error code format is as follows:
fff-ttt-iii-date-cc-text message
where:
fff
is the three-digit function code that indicates the function being
tested when the error occurred. For example, function code 089 is
for the microprocessor.
ttt
is the three-digit failure code that indicates the exact test failure
that was encountered.
iii
is the three-digit device ID.
date
is the date that the diagnostic test was run and the error recorded.
cc
is the check digit that is used to verify the validity of the
information.
text message
is the diagnostic message that indicates the reason for the problem.
Text messages
The diagnostic text message format is as follows:
Function Name: Result (test specific string)
where:
Function Name
is the name of the function being tested when the error occurred. This
corresponds to the function code (fff) given in the previous list.
Result can be one of the following:
Passed
This result occurs when the diagnostic test completes without any
errors.
Failed This result occurs when the diagnostic test discovers an error.
User Aborted
This result occurs when you stop the diagnostic test before it is
complete.
Not Applicable
This result occurs when you specify a diagnostic test for a device
that is not present.
Aborted
This result occurs when the test could not proceed because of the
system configuration.
Diagnostics
13
Warning
This result occurs when a possible problem is reported during the
diagnostic test, such as when a device that is to be tested is not
installed.
Test Specific String
This is additional information that you can use to analyze the problem.
Starting the diagnostic programs
You can press F1 while running the diagnostic programs to obtain Help
information. You also can press F1 from within a help screen to obtain online
documentation from which you can select different categories. To exit Help and
return to where you left off, press Esc.
To start the diagnostic programs:
1. Turn on the server and watch the screen.
Note: To run the diagnostic programs, you must start the server with the
highest level password that is set. That is, if an administrator password
is set, you must enter the administrator password, not the power-on
password, to run the diagnostic programs.
2. When the message F2 for Diagnostics appears, press F2.
3. Type in the appropriate password when prompted; then, press Enter.
4. Select either Extended or Basic from the top of the screen.
5. When the Diagnostic Programs screen appears, select the test you want to run
from the list that appears; then, follow the instructions on the screen.
Notes:
a. If the server stops during testing and you cannot continue, restart the server
and try running the diagnostic programs again. If the problem persists,
flash server with the latest diagnostics code and run the test again.
b. The keyboard and mouse (pointing device) tests assume that a keyboard
and mouse are attached to the server.
c. If you run the diagnostic programs with no mouse attached to the server,
you will not be able to navigate between test categories using the Next Cat
and Prev Catbuttons. All other functions provided by mouse-selectable
buttons are also available using the function keys.
d. You can run the USB interface test and the USB external loopback test only
if there are no USB devices attached.
e. You can view server configuration information (such as system
configuration, memory contents, interrupt request (IRQ) use, direct memory
access (DMA) use, device drivers, and so on) by selecting Hardware Info
from the top of the screen.
When the tests have completed, you can view the Test Log by selecting Utility
from the top of the screen.
If the hardware checks out OK but the problem persists during normal server
operations, a software error might be the cause. If you suspect a software problem,
refer to the information that comes with the software package.

Light path diagnostics
You can use the light path diagnostics built into the server to quickly identify the
type of system error that occurred. Your server is designed so that LEDs remain
illuminated when the server shuts down, as long as the power supplies are
operating properly. This feature helps you to isolate the problem if an error causes
the server to shut down.
If the system error LED (on the information LED panel) is not lit and no
diagnostics panel LEDs are lit, it means that the light path diagnostics have not
detected a system error.
If the system error LED (on the information LED panel) is lit, it means that a
system error was detected. Check to see which of the LEDs on the diagnostics
panel inside the server are lit and refer to the following table:

Power checkout
Power problems can be difficult to troubleshoot. For instance, a short circuit can
exist anywhere on any of the power distribution busses. Usually a short circuit will
cause the power subsystem to shut down because of an overcurrent condition.
A general procedure for troubleshooting power problems is as follows:
1. Power off the system and disconnect the AC cord(s).
2. Check for loose cables in the power subsystem. Also check for short circuits, for
instance if there is a loose screw causing a short circuit on a circuit board.
3. Remove adapters and disconnect the cables and power connectors to all
internal and external devices until system is at minimum configuration
required for power on (see ″Minimum operating requirements″ on page 131).
4. Reconnect the AC cord and power on the system. If the system powers up
successfully, replace adapters and devices one at a time until the problem is
isolated. If system does not power up from minimal configuration, replace
FRUs of minimal configuration one at a time until the problem is isolated.
To use this method it is important to know the minimum configuration required
for a system to power up (see page 131). For specific problems, see “Power error
messages” on page 139.

Troubleshooting the Ethernet controller
This section provides troubleshooting information for problems that might occur
with the 10/100 Mbps Ethernet controller.
Network connection problems
If the Ethernet controller cannot connect to the network, check the following:
v Make sure that the cable is installed correctly.
The network cable must be securely attached at all connections. If the cable is
attached but the problem persists, try a different cable.
If you set the Ethernet controller to operate at 100 Mbps, you must use Category
5 cabling.
If you directly connect two workstations (without a hub), or if you are not using
a hub with X ports, use a crossover cable.
v
v

v
v
Note: To determine whether a hub has an X port, check the port label. If the
label contains an X, the hub has an X port.
Determine if the hub supports auto-negotiation. If not, try configuring the
integrated Ethernet controller manually to match the speed and duplex mode of
the hub.
Check the Ethernet controller lights on the operator information panel.
These lights indicate whether a problem exists with the connector, cable, or hub.
– The Ethernet Link Status light illuminates when the Ethernet controller
receives a LINK pulse from the hub. If the light is off, there might be a
defective connector or cable, or a problem with the hub.
– The Ethernet Transmit/Receive Activity light illuminates when the Ethernet
controller sends or receives data over the Ethernet Network. If the Ethernet
Transmit/Receive Activity light is off, make sure that the hub and network
are operating and that the correct device drivers are loaded.
– The Ethernet Speed 100 Mbps light illuminates when the Ethernet controller
LAN speed is 100 Mbps.
Make sure that you are using the correct device drivers, supplied with the
server.
Check for operating system-specific causes for the problem.
Make sure that the device drivers on the client and server are using the same
protocol.
Test the Ethernet controller.
How you test the Ethernet controller depends on which operating system you
are using (see the Ethernet controller device driver README file).

operating system loads. For example, you can define a startup sequence that
checks for a startable diskette in the diskette drive, then checks the hard disk
drive in bay 1, and then checks a network adapter.
You also can select which PCI SCSI adapter is given boot precedence. The first
drive that is attached to the selected adapter will be assigned drive number 80L
and the operating system will start from that drive. The default for boot
precedence is Disabled. The range of choices depends upon the number of PCI
SCSI adapters installed in the server.
You can enable a virus-detection test that checks for changes in the master boot
record at startup. You also can choose to run POST in the enhanced mode or the
quick mode.
v Advanced Setup
Select this choice to change values for advanced hardware features, such as
cache control, and PCI configuration. This choice appears only on the full
Configuration/Setup Utility main menu.

PCI Slot/Device Information choice. The save, restore and load default
settings choices on the main menu of the Configuration/Setup Utility do not
save the PCI Slot/Device Information settings.
After making changes, select:
- Save and exit the PCI Utility to save the changes and return to the
Advanced Setup choice.
- Exit the PCI Utility without saving changes to ignore the changes, restore
the previous settings, and return to the Advanced Setup choice.
– PCI Device Control allows you to enable or disable the integrated SCSI,
video, and Ethernet controllers. You can also enable or disable PCI slots from
this menu.
- The default setting is Enable for all the controllers and PCI slots. If you
select Disable, the system will not configure the disabled device and the
operating system will not see the device. (This is equivalent to unplugging
the device.)
- If the on-board SCSI controller is disabled and no other controller and mass
storage device are installed, operating system startup cannot occur.
- If the video controller is disabled and no video adapter is installed, the
server will have no video capability. However, turning the server off and
on three times without completing POST results in a default startup that
enables video again.
– Memory Settings
Select this choice to manually disable or enable a bank of memory.
If a memory error is detected during POST or memory configuration, the
server can automatically disable the failing memory bank and continue
operating with reduced memory capacity. If this occurs, you must manually

system. The keyboard and mouse remain locked until you enter the correct
password.
You can use any combination of up to seven characters (A–Z, a–z, and 0–9) for the
power-on password. Keep a record of the password in a secure place. If you forget
the power-on password, you can regain access to the server through one of the
following methods:
v If an administrator password is set, enter the administrator password at the
power-on prompt. Start the Configuration/Setup Utility program and change the
power-on password.
v Change the position of the password override switch as described in “Setting the
password override switch”.
v Remove the battery and then install the battery.
Setting the password override switch: When a power-on password is set, POST
does not complete until you enter the password. If you forget the power-on
password, you can regain access to the server through either of the following
methods:
v Enter the administrator password at the power-on prompt, if an administrator
password has been set. Start the Configuration/Setup Utility program and
change the power-on password.

Working with adapters
You can install up to six adapters in the expansion connectors on the processor
board. All six of the slots are peripheral component interconnect (PCI) expansion
slots.
The server comes with an integrated super video graphics array (SVGA) video
controller, which is not removable. If you want to disable this controller and use a
video adapter instead, you can install a video adapter in an expansion slot. When
you install a PCI video adapter, the server BIOS automatically disables the
integrated video controller.

Adapter considerations
Before you continue with the adapter-installation procedure:
v Review the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions given in this chapter. If you need to
change the switch or jumper settings on the adapter, follow the instructions that
come with the adapter documentation.
v Slots 3 through 6 support 5.0 V and universal PCI adapters.
Note: A Universal PCI adapter supports both 3.3 V and 5.0 V operation.
v Slots 1 and 2 support 3.3 V and universal PCI adapters only.
v The server uses a rotational interrupt technique to configure PCI adapters.
Because of this technique, you can install a variety of PCI adapters that currently
do not support sharing of PCI interrupts.
v The system scans PCI slots 1 through 6 to assign system resources; then the
system starts (boots) the PCI devices in the following order: processor board
devices, slots 1 and 2, and then slots 3 through 6.
v The performance of the PCI adapters depends on the types of adapters in the
system.
v If you install a RAID adapter, follow the instructions in the RAID adapter
documentation for configuring the adapter.
v If you install a RAID adapter that comes with a backup battery pack, you must
enable the backup battery pack before you can use the RAID adapter.
Installing an adapter
Refer to the following illustration to install an adapter.
Before you begin:
Installing options
47
v Read “Safety information” on page 152.
v Review the information in “Before you begin” on page 43.
v Read the documentation that comes with the option.
To install an adapter:
Attention: Do not remove a hot-plug adapter before performing the
operating-system-defined procedure for disabling the hot-plug PCI slot
that contains the adapter. Failure to do so might cause the system to
lock up. Refer to the operating system documentation.
1. Review the information in “Before you begin” on page 43.
2. Turn off the server and all attached devices and disconnect all power cords;
then, remove the top cover.
3. Determine which expansion slot you will use for the adapter.
4. Remove the expansion-slot cover:
a. Refer to the illustration in this section for operation of the adapter
retention latch on the end of the slot near the rear of the server.

c. Lift the tab covering the top of the expansion-slot cover and remove the
expansion-slot cover from the server. Store it in a safe place for future use.
d. Press on the rear latch and lift the rear retainer clip.
Attention: You must install expansion-slot covers on all empty slots. This
maintains the electromagnetic emissions characteristics of the system and
ensures proper cooling of system components.
5. Refer to the documentation that comes with your adapter for any cabling
instructions. It might be easier for you to route any cables before you install
the adapter. Refer to “Cabling example for the ServeRAID adapter” on page 49
for information about cable routing for the optional ServeRAID adapter.
48
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
6. Remove the adapter from the static-protective package.
Attention: Avoid touching the components and gold-edge connectors on the
adapter.
7. If you need to put down the adapter, place the adapter, component-side up,
on a flat, static-protective surface.

Installing internal drives
If you add different types of drives, the system can read multiple types of media
and store more data. Several types of drives are available, such as:
v Diskette
v Hard disk
v CD-ROM
v Tape
Internal drives are installed in bays. Your server comes with one 3.5-inch, 1.44MB
diskette drive and one CD-ROM drive.
3.5-inch diskette drive
CD-ROM drive
Media bays 1 and 2
Hot-swap hard disk
Your server contains hardware that enables you to replace a failed hard disk drive
without turning off the server. Therefore, you have the advantage of continuing to
operate the system while a hard disk drive is removed or installed. These drives
are known as hot-swap drives.
Each hot-swap drive has two indicator lights on the front of the server. If the
amber hard-disk status light for a drive is lit continuously, that individual drive is
faulty and needs to be replaced. When the hard-disk status light indicates a drive
fault, you can replace a hot-swap drive without turning off the server.
50
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
Each hot-swap drive that you plan to install must be mounted in a hot-swap-drive
tray. The drive must have a single connector attachment (SCA) connector.
Hot-swap-drive trays come with hot-swap drives.
Internal drive bays
Internal drives are installed in bays.
v The server comes with one integrated drive electronics (IDE) CD-ROM drive and
one 3.5-inch, 1.44 MB diskette drive.
v The left front bays support 5.25-inch, half-high, removable-media drives. Any
two adjacent 5.25-inch, half-high bays can be converted to a single full-high bay.
Note: The server EMI integrity and cooling are both protected by having the left
front bays covered or occupied. When you install a drive, save the filler
panel from the bay, in case you later remove the drive and do not replace
it with another.
v You cannot install hard disk drives in the left front bays. You can install
hot-swap hard disk drives only in the hot-swap hard disk drive bays on the
right front side of the server.
v If you are installing a device with a 50-pin connector in one of the left front
bays, you will need a 68-to-50-pin converter (option number 32G3925).
v Your server supports ten 1-inch (26 mm) slim-high or seven 1.6-inch (42 mm)
half-high, 3.5-inch hot-swap hard disk drives in the hot-swap bays.
v The hot-swap bays connect to a hard disk drive (HDD) backplane. The backplane
is a printed circuit board behind the bays.
Some drives have a special interface called small computer system interface, or SCSI.
Using this interface, you can attach multiple drives to a single SCSI controller.
Notes:
1. Any information about SCSI drives also applies to other SCSI devices, such as
scanners and printers.
2. If you plan to install both internal and external SCSI devices, you must follow
the instructions in “Connecting external options” on page 65, in addition to the
instructions in this section.
An additional 16-bit, two-drop SCSI cable comes with the server. It is located in the
bottom of the server media bay and is restrained with a cable clamp.
If you want to install SCSI devices in the removable media bays:
1. Locate the internal SCSI connector on the power backplane.
2. Use the 16-bit two-drop SCSI cable located in the bottom of the server media
bay.
3. Connect the SCSI device(s) in the removable media bay to the internal SCSI
connector on the power backplane.
Note: If you are installing a 5.25-inch device, you can obtain an optional SCSI
adapter to control the SCSI hot-swap backplane.

Each SCSI device connected to a SCSI controller must have a unique SCSI ID. This
ID enables the SCSI controller to identify the device and ensure that different
devices on the same SCSI channel do not attempt to transfer data simultaneously.
SCSI devices that are connected to different SCSI channels can have duplicate SCSI
IDs.
The hot-swap-drive backplane controls the SCSI IDs for the internal hot-swap
drive bays. However, when you attach SCSI devices to the external SCSI connector,
you must set a unique ID for the device. Refer to the information that is provided
with the device for instructions to set its SCSI ID.

Serial ports
The server has two standard serial ports: serial port A and serial port B. The
operating system can use and share both serial ports; however, the integrated
Netfinity Advanced System Management Processor can use and share only serial
port A.
Some application programs require specific ports, and some modems function
properly only at certain communication port addresses. You might need to use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to change communication port address
assignments to prevent or resolve address conflicts.

Universal Serial Bus ports
The server has two Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports that configure automatically.
USB is an emerging serial interface standard for telephony and multimedia
devices. It uses Plug and Play technology to determine the type of device attached
to the connector.
Notes:
1. If you attach a standard (non-USB) keyboard to the keyboard connector, the
USB ports and devices will be disabled during the power-on self-test (POST).
2. If you install a USB keyboard that has a mouse port, the USB keyboard
emulates a mouse and you will not be able to disable the mouse settings in the
Configuration/Setup Utility program.
3. Check to make sure your NOS supports USB devices.
USB cables and hubs
You need a 4-pin cable to connect devices to USB 1 or USB 2. If you plan to attach
more than two USB devices, you must use a hub to connect the devices. The hub
provides multiple connectors for attaching additional external USB devices.
USB technology provides up to 12 megabits-per-second (Mbps) speed with a
maximum of 127 external devices and a maximum signal distance of five meters
(16 ft.) per segment.
USB-port connectors
Each USB port has an external connector on the rear of the server for attaching
USB compatible devices.

Ethernet port
The server comes with an integrated Ethernet controller. This controller provides
an interface for connecting to 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps networks and provides
full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and
reception of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN).
To access the Ethernet port, connect a Category 3, 4 or 5 unshielded twisted-pair
(UTP) cable to the RJ-45 connector on the rear of the server.
Note: The 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet standard requires that the cabling in the
network be Category 5 or higher.
Configuring the Ethernet controller
When you connect the server to the network, the Ethernet controller automatically
detects the data-transfer rate (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) on the network and then sets
the controller to operate at the appropriate rate. That is, the Ethernet controller will
adjust to the network data rate, whether the data rate is standard Ethernet
(10BASE-T), Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX), half duplex (HDX), or full duplex (FDX).
The controller supports half-duplex (HDX) and full-duplex (FDX) modes at both
speeds.
The Ethernet controller is a PCI Plug and Play device. You do not need to set any
jumpers or configure the controller for the operating system before you use the
Ethernet controller. However, you must install a device driver to enable the
operating system to address the Ethernet controller. The device drivers are
provided on the ServerGuide CDs.
Failover for redundant Ethernet
The IBM Netfinity 10/100 Fault Tolerant Adapter is an optional redundant network
interface card (NIC adapter) that you can install in the server. If you install this
NIC adapter and connect it to the same logical segment as the primary Ethernet
controller, you can configure the server to support a failover function. You can
configure either the integrated Ethernet controller or the NIC adapter as the
primary Ethernet controller. In failover mode, if the primary Ethernet controller
detects a link failure, all Ethernet traffic associated with it is switched to the
redundant (secondary) controller. This switching occurs without any user
intervention. When the primary link is restored to an operational state, the
Ethernet traffic switches back to the primary Ethernet controller. The switch back
to the primary Ethernet controller can be automatic or manually controlled,
depending on the setup and operating system.
Note that only one controller in the redundant pair is active at any given time. For
example, if the primary Ethernet controller is active, then the secondary Ethernet
controller cannot be used for any other network operation.
72
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
Note: The operating system determines the maximum number of IBM Netfinity
10/100 Fault Tolerant Adapters that you can install in the server. See the
documentation that comes with the adapter for more information.
Configuring for failover: The failover feature currently is supported by Windows
NT Server and IntraNetWare. The setup required for each operating system
follows.
Windows NT Server: To install the IBM Netfinity 10/100 Fault Tolerant Adapter
device drivers:
1. Add the redundant NIC adapter according to the instructions that are provided
with the adapter.
2. Use the ServerGuide CDs to install the AMD PCNet Ethernet Family adapter
device driver.
3. Do not select the Grouping box at this point; you must first restart the machine.
4. From the Windows NT Server desktop, select Control Panel, then select the
Network icon, then select the Adapters tab.
5. Highlight one of the adapters that will be in the redundant pair and then click
the Properties... button.
6. Check the Grouping box. This will show the possible combinations for
redundant pairs.
7. Select the adapter pair you want and then select OK. Note that the integrated
Ethernet controller is located at PCI bus A, slot 2.
8. Select Close to exit from the Network setup.
When you restart the server, the failover function will be in effect.
If a failover occurs, a message is written to the NT Event Viewer log.
IntraNetWare:
1. Add the redundant NIC adapter according to the instructions that are provided
with the adapter.
2. Load the device driver by using the following command:
LOAD d:\path\PCNTNW.LAN PRIMARY=x SECONDARY=y
where d and path are the drive and path where the driver is located, and x and
y are the PCI slot numbers where the redundant pair is located.
The slot number associated with the integrated Ethernet controller can vary
depending on the configuration of the server. To determine the slot number,
load the driver with no parameters. The driver will display the available slot
numbers. The slot number that is greater that 10000 will be the slot number of
integrated Ethernet controller. When the slot number of the integrated Ethernet
controller is determined, reload the driver with the appropriate parameters.
3. When the driver is loaded, bind it to a protocol stack.
The failover function is now enabled. If a failover occurs:
v The operating system console generates a message.
v The custom counters for the device driver contain variables that define the state
of the failover function and the location of the redundant pair. You can use the
NetWare Monitor to view the custom counters.

Advanced System Management ports
The server has three communication ports dedicated to the Netfinity Advanced
System Management Processor. One port uses a standard D-shell serial-port
connector, connector C. The other two ports, which are used for the Advanced
System Management Interconnect function, use a dual RJ-45 connector.
You can attach a dedicated modem to the D-shell system-management connector
on the rear of the server to communicate with the integrated Netfinity Advanced
System Management Processor.
The Advanced System Management Interconnect function uses the RJ-45
system-management connectors. This function enables you to connect the
Advanced System Management Processors of several rack-mounted servers so that
they can communicate with each other in half-duplex mode.
Cabling the server
Refer to the following illustration for the location of input and output connectors
and for an example of proper cable routing.

accessing remote systems. This will force you to manually log on each
time a remote stem is accessed.Service Execution Alerts
v Service Execution Alerts
If the Service Execution Alerts option is enabled, the Netfinity Manager
Service Manager will generate a Netfinity Manager alert whenever one of
the user’sNetfinity Manager services is started by a remote user. The alert
includes the name of the service that was run and information about the
user that started the service.
v Show Network Support
If the Show Network Support option is enabled, the Netfinity Manager
Support Program (or Network Interface) will be visible as a minimized
process in the Windows NT 4.0 taskbar. This enables the user to shut
down the Netfinity Manager Support Program. If the Netfinity Manager
Support Program is to remain invisible to the user, do not enable this
option.
Netfinity Manager
85
v Remote User Authorization for Screen Access
If the Remote User Authorization for Screen Access option is enabled, a
remote user cannot use either Remote Workstation Control or Screen
View on your system without your permission. When this option is
enabled and a remote user attempts to use one of these services on your
system, a window will pop up on your desktop alerting you that a
remote user is attempting to use the Remote Workstation Control or
Screen View service and asking whether you want to permit this user to
use this service on your system. You can click Yes or No. If you do not
make a selection within 15 seconds (for example, if you are not sitting at
your system when the access attempt is made), Netfinity Manager will
automatically prevent the remote user from using the service on your
system.
v Disable DNS Name Resolution
If the Disable DNS Name Resolution option is enabled, Netfinity
Manager will use only a numeric TCP/IP address (for example,
8.24.67.32) to communicate with remote systems and will not attempt to
resolve the numeric address into an alphanumeric, Domain Name Server
(DNS) address (for example, your.system.ibm.com). Select this option if
you are using Netfinity Manager is a WINS networking environment or if
you are using TCP/IP in an environment that does not have a Domain
Name Server.
To implement one or more of the available Netfinity Manager Options:
1) Click Options....
2) Select the Netfinity Manager options to be enabled.
3) Click Save.
f. Set the Network Timeout Value (optional).
The Network Timeout field shows the number of seconds that Netfinity
Manager will attempt to communicate with a remote system that is not
responding. If Netfinity Manager does not establish contact with the remote
system within this time, it cancels the communication attempt. The Network
Timeout default setting is 15 seconds. This default setting might not need to
be altered.
g. Save the configuration and continue.
Click Save to save the configuration. Then, click Exit to continue.
Note: The configuration can be changed later by double-clicking the
Network Driver Configuration object in the Netfinity Manager
folder.
10. After finishing configuring the system for network access, the installation
program displays a list of changes that must be made to the system
configuration files, and asks whether the installation program should make
the changes. For example, if Netfinity Manager for Windows 95 is being
installed, the installation program will display a list of changes that must be
made to the CONFIG.SYS file.
Click either Yes or No.
Note: These changes must be made to the system configuration for Netfinity
Manager to run correctly.
v If you click Yes the changes are automatically made to the system
configuration.
86
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
v If you click No the commands are saved to a file named CONFIG.NEW in
the destination directory (and to AUTOEXEC.NEW, if appropriate) so that
they can be added later.
11. The installation is now complete. Shut down and restart the system for the
system configuration changes to take effect.
Netfinity Manager database support
Netfinity Manager supports the collection and export of a vast amount of
system-specific data to a Netfinity Manager database.

Brief descriptions of each of the Netfinity Manager services follow. Complete
instructions on how to use each of these services can be found in the
service-specific chapters of the Netfinity Manager User’s Guide.
Advanced System Management
The Advanced System Management service provides extensive functionality
available for your IBM PC Server Advanced System Management Adapter,
Netfinity Advanced System Management PCI Adapter, or Netfinity Advanced
System Management Processor. With the Advanced System Management service,
you can configure system management events (such as POST, loader, and operating
system timeouts or critical temperature, voltage, and tamper alerts). If any of these
events occurs, the Advanced System Management service can be configured to use
a modem or your Netfinity Manager system to automatically forward a Netfinity
alert to other Netfinity Manager systems or to a numeric or alphanumeric pager.
Alert Manager
The Alert Manager is an extendable facility that allows receiving and processing of
application-generated alerts. A variety of actions can be taken in response to alerts,
including logging alerts, notifying the user, forwarding the alert to another system,
executing a program, playing a WAV file (available only on multimedia systems),
generating an SNMP alert message, dialing out to a digital pager service (available
only on systems that have a modem), or taking an application-defined action.
Actions are user-definable, using a flexible action management interface.
Also, an extensive, detailed log is kept of all alerts received by the Alert Manager.
Logged information includes date and time the alert was received, type and
severity of the alert, the ID of the application that generated the alert, as well as
any text that was generated and any action taken by the Alert Manager. Individual
or multiple alerts can be selected from the log and printed for later reference, or
deleted once problems are corrected. This service is available for both stand-alone
and network use.
Alert on LAN configuration
Use the Alert on LAN configuration service to configure monitoring options of
Alert on LAN-capable systems locally and remotely. Systems with Alert on LAN
capability provide critical status information about system states. The data is
reported by hardware or software (depending upon whether the systems in
currently powered on or not) using TCP/IP.
Capacity Management
Capacity Management is an easy-to-use resource management and planning tool
for network managers and administrators, allowing remote performance
monitoring of every server on the network.
Cluster Manager
Cluster Manager is an application designed to enhance the cluster management
capabilities of the Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) administration console,
included with Microsoft Windows NT Version 4.0 Enterprise Edition. Cluster
Manager builds on the power of MSCS, providing an integrated graphical interface
Netfinity Manager
99
that enables you to quickly and easily monitor and manage the clustered systems
on your network. This service is available only on systems running Windows NT
Workstation 4.0.
Critical File Monitor
Critical File Monitor can warn you whenever critical system files on the system are
deleted or altered. Critical File Monitor makes it simple to generate Netfinity alerts
when an important System File (such as the CONFIG.SYS file) changes date, time,
size, or when it is deleted or created. Critical File Monitor can also be used to
monitor any other files that reside on a Netfinity Manager system.
DMI Browser
DMI Browser enables you to examine information about the DMI-compliant
hardware and software products installed in or attached to the system.
ECC Memory Setup
The ECC Memory Setup allows for monitoring of ECC memory single-bit errors,
and can automatically “scrub,” or correct, the ECC memory when errors are
detected. Also, a running count of single-bit errors can be kept, and can set a
single-bit error threshold that will cause a nonmaskable interrupt (NMI) if the ECC
single-bit error threshold is exceeded. This service is available for both stand-alone
and network use by any system that has ECC memory.
Event Scheduler
Use Event Scheduler to automate many Netfinity Manager services. With Event
Scheduler, you can automatically gather and export System Information Tool,
System Profile, and Software Inventory data, distribute or delete files, restart
systems, execute commands, and access and manage System Partitions on all of the
Netfinity Manager systems on the network. Scheduled events can be performed
one time only, or can be performed according to a user-defined schedule.
File Transfer
Use the File Transfer service to easily send, receive, or delete files or entire
directories to and from remote Netfinity Manager systems on the network.
Power-On Error Detect
The Power-On Error Detect service can warn you immediately when a remote
Netfinity Manager system has start-up problems, enabling you to react quickly to
problems and minimize downtime.
Predictive Failure Analysis
The Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) service enables continual monitoring and
managing of PFA-enabled hard disk drives. A PFA-enabled hard disk drive
features hardware designed to help detect drive problems and predict drive
failures before they occur, thus enabling you to avoid data loss and system
downtime.
Process Manager
Use Process Manager to view detailed information about all processes that are
currently active on any system. It is also possible to stop or start processes and
generate Netfinity Manager alerts if a process starts, stops, or fails to start within a
specified amount of time after system startup.
RAID Manager
The RAID Manager service can monitor, manage, and configure an assortment of
Redundant Arrays of Independent Disk (RAID) adapters and arrays without
requiring the RAID system to be taken offline to perform maintenance. Use the
RAID Manager to gather data about the system RAID array and RAID adapter,
100
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
rebuild failing drives, add (or remove) logical drives, perform data integrity tests,
and many other RAID system tasks. This service is available for both stand alone
and network use by any system that has a supported RAID adapter.
Remote Session
Use Remote Session to establish a fully active command session with any remote
Netfinity Manager system.
Remote System Manager
Use Remote System Manager to access and manage any Netfinity Manager service
on any Netfinity Manager system in the network. The Netfinity Manager system
on the network is organized into easy-to-manage logical groups that can be
updated automatically using the auto-discovery feature.
Remote Workstation Control
Remote Workstation Control can monitor or control the screen display of a remote
system that is running Netfinity Manager (or Client Services for Netfinity
Manager). Once you initiate a Remote Workstation Control session with another
Netfinity Manager system, you can passively monitor events that are occurring on
the display of the remote system or actively control the remote system desktop.
When you initiate an active Remote Workstation Control session, all mouse clicks
and keystrokes entered on your system are automatically passed to the remote
system. With Remote Workstation Control, you can remotely start programs, open
and close windows, enter commands, and much more.
Screen View
The Screen View service takes a “snapshot” of the system graphic display or any
remote system running Netfinity Manager or Client Services for Netfinity Manager
and displays it on the screen. These snapshots can be saved as bitmaps and viewed
later.
Security Manager
The Security Manager service can prevent unauthorized access to some or all of
the Netfinity Manager services. It uses incoming user ID and password
combinations, and is available for network use only.
Serial Connection Control
The Serial Connection Control service enables remote systems running Netfinity
Manager to access the system through a phone line and modem. With the Serial
Connection Control service, you do not have to be attached to a network to benefit
from the outstanding remote system access, monitoring, and management
capabilities of Netfinity Manager.
Note: The system must have a properly installed and configured modem that
supports at least 9600 baud for the Serial Connection Control service to
function.
Service Configuration Manager
Service Configuration Manager can save the configuration of a Netfinity Manager
service from a selected system to a service configuration file (SCF). Once created,
SCF files can be used by Event Scheduler to restore the configuration to the same
system, or it can be used (in conjunction with Event Scheduler) to duplicate that
configuration on other similar systems you choose.
Software Inventory
Software Inventory enables the user to create and manage software product
dictionaries that can be used to easily maintain an inventory of all application
programs installed on the system.
Netfinity Manager
101
System Diagnostics Manager
System Diagnostics Manager enables you to initiate a variety of diagnostic tasks on
systems that support ROM-based diagnostics. The results of all previously run
diagnostic sessions are stored and can be examined using System Diagnostics
Manager to help diagnose and resolve system problems.
System Information Tool
The System Information Tool enables quick and convenient access to detailed
information on the hardware and software configurations of the system. System
Information Tool gathers information about almost any computer; however, the
most detail is provided when this service is used with IBM computers. This service
is available for both stand-alone and network use.
System Monitor
The System Monitor provides a convenient method of charting and monitoring the
activity of a number of components in a system, including processor usage, disk
space used, and ECC memory errors. These convenient monitors are detachable
and scalable, enabling only the monitors needed to remain available at all times.
Use the System Monitor Threshold Manager to set threshold levels for any of the
monitored components. When exceeded, these thresholds will generate
user-configured alerts.
Data is continually collected from the time the system starts. A sophisticated
data-handling technique is used to weigh the individual values, average concurrent
samples, and post single values that accurately reflect long-term system activity.
This technique allows system activity records to be maintained without creating
enormous data files. This service is available for both stand-alone and network use.
System Partition Access
The System Partition Access allows for greatly simplified system partition file
handling, both locally and remotely. Individual files and entire directories can be
renamed or deleted from the system partition. Individual files can be renamed,
deleted, or copied into the system partition. Also, the entire partition can be
backed-up, restored, or deleted. This service is available for both stand-alone and
network use by any system that has a System Partition.
System Profile
The System Profile provides a convenient notebook of pertinent data about a
particular user or system. It features many predefined fields for extensive
user-specific data, including name, address, office number and location, and phone
number. System Profile also includes many predefined fields for system-specific
data that might not be available to the System Information Tool, including model
and serial numbers and date of purchase. Finally, there are many user-definable
miscellaneous fields that can be used to hold any data the user or administrator
requires.
Update Connector Manager
Use Update Connector Manager to quickly and easily gather information about
various updates that are available for your client systems. Once available updates
are discovered, use Update Connector Manager to apply updates to your systems
remotely. Updates can be applied to individual systems, or you can apply multiple
updates to multiple systems, all from Netfinity Manager. You can also use Update
Connector Manager to remove previously applied updates. Update Connector
Manager also includes a scheduler that you can use to discover, apply, or remove
updates automatically and periodically.
102
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
Web Manager Configuration
Use the Web Manager Configuration service to limit access to the Netfinity
Manager for Web to user-specified TCP/IP host or ranges of TCP/IP host
addresses. Enable or disable the Netfinity Manager for Web and specify the
TCP/IP port number to which the Netfinity Manager Web server functions.
Delaying Netfinity Manager startup on OS/2 systems
In some cases, it might be necessary for you to delay the automatic startup of the
Netfinity Manager Network Interface (NETFBASE.EXE) in order to allow other
time-sensitive applications to start up correctly or to allow your system to fully
configure itself prior to beginning network operations. NETFBASE.EXE includes a
parameter (WAIT) that you can use to specify the number of seconds that
NETFBASE.EXE will wait before starting.
During Netfinity Manager installation, the Netfinity Manager Network Interface
object is placed in the Startup folder. To configure Netfinity Manager to wait a
specified number of seconds before starting:
1. Shut down the Netfinity Manager Network Interface if it is running.
2. Open the Startup folder.
3. Using the right mouse button, click the Netfinity Manager Network Interface
object. This will open the Netfinity Manager Network Interface context menu.
4. Click Settings to open the Netfinity Manager Network Interface Settings
notebook.
5. In the Parameters field type
WAIT:x
where x is the number of seconds that you want the Netfinity Manager
Network Interface to wait before starting.
6. Close the Netfinity Manager Network Interface Settings notebook.
With the WAIT parameter set to x, whenever you start your system, the Netfinity
Manager Network Interface will wait x seconds before starting.
Note: This feature is available only on systems that are running OS/2.

Installation options
This appendix describes methods for performing automated installations of
Netfinity Manager and creating customized Netfinity Manager installations.
Automated installation
If the system has a CID-enabled (CID stands for customization, installation, and
distribution) software distribution manager utility (such as LAN CID, included
with IBM Network Transport Services/2), Netfinity Manager can be installed on
systems within the network by using the Netfinity Manager installation program
command line parameters and response file. First, a source directory must be
created for the installation.
To create a source directory for a Client Services for Netfinity Manager installation:
1. Create a new directory on your system. This new directory will serve as a
source directory for the program files.
2. Copy the files from the appropriate Client Services for Netfinity Manager
directory location on the CD-ROM to source directory you created.
For example, when creating a source directory to distribute Netfinity Manager
Services for OS/2, copy all of the files from the OS2/SERVICES directory into
the created directory.
To create a source directory for a Netfinity Manager installation:
1. Create a new directory on your system. This new directory will serve as a
source directory for the program files.
Important: Be sure to copy the Client Services for Netfinity Manager source
files before the copying the Netfinity Manager source files because the Netfinity
Manager directory contains some files that will overwrite files from the Client
Services for Netfinity Manager directory. Only Netfinity Manager installations
can be done from this directory.
104
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
2. Copy the files from the appropriate Client Services for Netfinity Manager
directories.
For example, when creating a source directory to distribute Netfinity Manager
for OS/2, copy all of the files from the OS2/SERVICES directory into the source
directory.
3. Copy the files from the appropriate Netfinity Manager directory.
For example, when creating a source directory to distribute Netfinity Manager
for OS/2, copy all of the files from the OS2/MANAGER directory into the
source directory.
After an installation source directory has been created, use a response file and the
Netfinity Manager installation program command-line parameters. The Netfinity
Manager installation program supports the following command-line parameters:
/R: drive+path+filename
Specifies the drive, path, and file name of the response file. See the
NETFBASE.RSP file (located in the directory in which Netfinity Manager
was installed) for an example of a response file with comments on the
included parameters.
/S: drive+path
Specifies the drive and path to install from. This is the directory to which
the files were copied.
/T: drive
Specifies the drive to install to. Default is the current startup drive.
/TU: drive+path
Specifies the drive and path of the CONFIG.SYS file to update. The default
is to change the CONFIG.SYS in the root directory of the drive specified in
the /T parameter (or the startup drive). This parameter is ignored if the
ChangeConfig parameter in the response file is FALSE.
For example, the line:
NETFINST /R:NETFBASE.RSP /S:Y:\NETFIN
/T:C /TU:D:\
will install Netfinity Manager, using the options in the response file
NETFBASE.RSP, from the directory Y:\NETFIN, to drive C: (the directory
to which the files are installed is taken from the response file), and will
modify the CONFIG.SYS file in the D:\ directory.
Note: For information on how to use a CID-enabled software distribution
manager, refer to the publications provided with the individual CID-enabled
product.
Customized installation
For security reasons, not all users might need to have access to all services. User
access can be restricted by creating a customized installation that will prevent
some services from being installed.
To create a customized installation, the INSTALL.INI file must be edited. For
example, when creating a customized Netfinity Manager for Windows 95 or NT
installation, edit the INSTALL.INI file that is found on Netfinity Manager directory.
The INSTALL.INI file has three sections, separated by the line
Netfinity Manager
105
[==]
The first section contains the installation configuration that can be selected during
installation. There can be no more than eight choices. Each choice takes up two
lines. The first line is the text that is displayed next to the installation configuration
radio button. The second line is a list of the options in the third section that will be
installed when this choice is selected for installation.
For example:
;IBM SysMgt Install Script, Version 2 (Do not remove this comment line)

Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
Symptom-to-FRU index
This index supports Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666 servers.
Notes:
1. Check the configuration before you replace a FRU. Configuration problems can
cause false errors and symptoms.
2. The default configuration can be loaded by starting the system and then
pressing the reset button four times, waiting 15 seconds between each press.
Once the configuration has reset to the default, it must be saved in Setup to be
stored in CMOS.
3. For IBM devices not supported by index, refer to the manual for that device.
4. Always start with “General checkout” on page 1.
The Symptom-to-FRU lists symptoms, errors, and the possible causes. The most
likely cause is listed first. Use this Symptom-to-FRU index to help you decide
which FRUs to have available when servicing the computer. The POST BIOS
displays POST error codes and messages on the screen.
Beep symptoms
Beep symptoms are short tones or a series of short tones separated by pauses
(intervals without sound). See the following examples.
Note: One beep after successfully completing POST indicates the system is
functioning properly.

Undetermined problems
You are here because the diagnostic tests did not identify the failure, the Devices
List is incorrect, or the system is inoperative.
Notes:
1. A corrupt CMOS can cause undetermined problems.
2. A faulty I2C Bus can cause undetermined problems. Check the system error log
for any I2C Bus errors; see “I2C bus fault messages” on page 141.
Check the LEDs on all the power supplies, see“Power supply LED errors” on
page 131. If the LEDs indicate the power supplies are working correctly, return
here and do the following:
1. Power-off the computer.
2. Be sure the system is cabled correctly.
3. Remove or disconnect the following (one at a time) until you find the failure
(power-on the computer and reconfigure each time).

I/O Legacy Board
Notes:
1. If the problem goes away when you remove an adapter from the system, and
replacing that adapter does not correct the problem, suspect the Processor/PCI
Board, then the I/O Legacy Board.
2. If you suspect a networking problem and all the system tests pass, suspect a
network cabling problem external to the system.

Safety information
The following section contains the safety information that you need to be familiar
with before servicing an IBM mobile computer.
General safety
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
v Observe good housekeeping in the area of the machines during and after
maintenance.
v When lifting any heavy object:
1. Ensure you can stand safely without slipping.
2. Distribute the weight of the object equally between your feet.
3. Use a slow lifting force. Never move suddenly or twist when you attempt to
lift.
4. Lift by standing or by pushing up with your leg muscles; this action removes
the strain from the muscles in your back. Do not attempt to lift any objects that
weigh more than 16 kg (35 lb) or objects that you think are too heavy for you.
v Do not perform any action that causes hazards to the customer, or that makes
the equipment unsafe.
v Before you start the machine, ensure that other service representatives and the
customer’s personnel are not in a hazardous position.
v Place removed covers and other parts in a safe place, away from all personnel,
while you are servicing the machine.
v Keep your tool case away from walk areas so that other people will not trip over
it.
v Do not wear loose clothing that can be trapped in the moving parts of a
machine. Ensure that your sleeves are fastened or rolled up above your elbows.
If your hair is long, fasten it.
v Insert the ends of your necktie or scarf inside clothing or fasten it with a
nonconductive clip, approximately 8 centimeters (3 inches) from the end.
v Do not wear jewelry, chains, metal-frame eyeglasses, or metal fasteners for your
clothing.
Remember: Metal objects are good electrical conductors.
v Wear safety glasses when you are: hammering, drilling soldering, cutting wire,
attaching springs, using solvents, or working in any other conditions that might
be hazardous to your eyes.
v After service, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires.
Replace any safety device that is worn or defective.
v Reinstall all covers correctly before returning the machine to the customer.
Electrical safety
152
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
CAUTION:
Electrical current from power, telephone, and communication cables can be
hazardous. To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, disconnect the
attached power cords, telecommunication systems, networks, and modems before
you open the server covers, unless instructed otherwise in the installation and
configuration procedures.
Observe the following rules when working on electrical equipment.
Important: Use only approved tools and test equipment. Some hand tools have
handles covered with a soft material that does not insulate you when
working with live electrical currents.
Many customers have, near their equipment, rubber floor mats that
contain small conductive fibers to decrease electrostatic discharges. Do
not use this type of mat to protect yourself from electrical shock.
v Find the room emergency power-off (EPO) switch, disconnecting switch, or
electrical outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then operate the switch
or unplug the power cord quickly.
v Do not work alone under hazardous conditions or near equipment that has
hazardous voltages.
v Disconnect all power before:
– Performing a mechanical inspection
– Working near power supplies
– Removing or installing main units
v Before you start to work on the machine, unplug the power cord. If you cannot
unplug it, ask the customer to power-off the wall box that supplies power to the
machine and to lock the wall box in the off position.
v If you need to work on a machine that has exposed electrical circuits, observe
the following precautions:
– Ensure that another person, familiar with the power-off controls, is near you.
Remember: Another person must be there to switch off the power, if
necessary.
– Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment;
keep the other hand in your pocket or behind your back.
Remember: There must be a complete circuit to cause electrical shock. By
observing the above rule, you may prevent a current from passing through
your body.
– When using testers, set the controls correctly and use the approved probe
leads and accessories for that tester.
– Stand on suitable rubber mats (obtained locally, if necessary) to insulate you
from grounds such as metal floor strips and machine frames.
Observe the special safety precautions when you work with very high voltages;
these instructions are in the safety sections of maintenance information. Use
extreme care when measuring high voltages.
v Regularly inspect and maintain your electrical hand tools for safe operational
condition.
v Do not use worn or broken tools and testers.
v Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit. First, check that it
has been powered-off.
Related service information
153
v Always look carefully for possible hazards in your work area. Examples of these
hazards are moist floors, nongrounded power extension cables, power surges,
and missing safety grounds.
v Do not touch live electrical circuits with the reflective surface of a plastic dental
mirror. The surface is conductive; such touching can cause personal injury and
machine damage.
v Do not service the following parts with the power on when they are removed
from their normal operating places in a machine:
– Power supply units
– Pumps
– Blowers and fans
– Motor generators
and similar units. (This practice ensures correct grounding of the units.)
v If an electrical accident occurs:
– Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.
– Switch off power.
– Send another person to get medical aid.
Safety inspection guide
The intent of this inspection guide is to assist you in identifying potentially unsafe
conditions on these products. Each machine, as it was designed and built, had
required safety items installed to protect users and service personnel from injury.
This guide addresses only those items. However, good judgment should be used to
identify potential safety hazards due to attachment of non-IBM features or options
not covered by this inspection guide.
If any unsafe conditions are present, you must determine how serious the apparent
hazard could be and whether you can continue without first correcting the
problem.
Consider these conditions and the safety hazards they present:
v Electrical hazards, especially primary power (primary voltage on the frame can
cause serious or fatal electrical shock).
v Explosive hazards, such as a damaged CRT face or bulging capacitor
v Mechanical hazards, such as loose or missing hardware
The guide consists of a series of steps presented in a checklist. Begin the checks
with the power off, and the power cord disconnected.
Checklist:
1. Check exterior covers for damage (loose, broken, or sharp edges).
2. Power-off the computer. Disconnect the power cord.
3. Check the power cord for:
a. A third-wire ground connector in good condition. Use a meter to measure
third-wire ground continuity for 0.1 ohm or less between the external
ground pin and frame ground.
b. The power cord should be the appropriate type as specified in the parts
listings.
c. Insulation must not be frayed or worn.
154
Hardware Maintenance Manual: Netfinity 7100 – Type 8666
4. Remove the cover.
5. Check for any obvious non-IBM alterations. Use good judgment as to the safety
of any non-IBM alterations.
6. Check inside the unit for any obvious unsafe conditions, such as metal filings,
contamination, water or other liquids, or signs of fire or smoke damage.
7. Check for worn, frayed, or pinched cables.
8. Check that the power-supply cover fasteners (screws or rivets) have not been
removed or tampered with.
Handling electrostatic discharge-sensitive devices
Any computer part containing transistors or integrated circuits (ICs) should be
considered sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). ESD damage can occur when
there is a difference in charge between objects. Protect against ESD damage by
equalizing the charge so that the machine, the part, the work mat, and the person
handling the part are all at the same charge.
Notes:
1. Use product-specific ESD procedures when they exceed the requirements noted
here.
2. Make sure that the ESD protective devices you use have been certified (ISO
9000) as fully effective.
When handling ESD-sensitive parts:
v Keep the parts in protective packages until they are inserted into the product.
v Avoid contact with other people.
v Wear a grounded wrist strap against your skin to eliminate static on your body.
v Prevent the part from touching your clothing. Most clothing is insulative and
retains a charge even when you are wearing a wrist strap.
v Use the black side of a grounded work mat to provide a static-free work surface.
The mat is especially useful when handling ESD-sensitive devices.
v Select a grounding system, such as those listed below, to provide protection that
meets the specific service requirement.
Note: The use of a grounding system is desirable but not required to protect
against ESD damage.
– Attach the ESD ground clip to any frame ground, ground braid, or green-wire
ground.
– Use an ESD common ground or reference point when working on a
double-insulated or battery-operated system. You can use coax or
connector-outside shells on these systems.
– Use the round ground-prong of the ac plug on ac-operated computers.
Grounding requirements
Electrical grounding of the computer is required for operator safety and correct
system function. Proper grounding of the electrical outlet can be verified by a
certified electrician.

Due to the variety of hardware and software combinations that can be
encountered, use the following information to assist you in problem determination.
If possible, have this information available when requesting assistance from Service
Support and Engineering functions.
v Machine type and model
v Processor or hard disk upgrades
v Failure symptom
–
–
–
–
–
Do diagnostics fail?
What, when, where, single, or multiple systems?
Is the failure repeatable?
Has this configuration ever worked?
If it has been working, what changes were made prior to it failing?
– Is this the original reported failure?
v Reference/Diagnostics version
– Type and version level
v Hardware configuration
– Print (print screen) configuration currently in use
– BIOS level
v Operating system software
– Type and version level
Note: To eliminate confusion, identical systems are considered identical only if
they:
1. Are the exact machine type and models
2. Have the same BIOS level
3. Have the same adapters/attachments in the same locations
4. Have the same address jumpers/terminators/cabling
5. Have the same software versions and levels
6. Have the same Reference/Diagnostics Diskette (version)
7. Have the same configuration options set in the system
8. Have the same setup for the operation system control files
Comparing the configuration and software set-up between ″working and
non-working″ systems will often lead to problem resolution.
