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: 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 10.
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:
• The customer identifies the system as part of a cluster.
• 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.
• 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 129.
4. If the computer hangs and no error is displayed, go to
“Undetermined problems” on page 147.
5. Power supply problems, see “Symptom-to-FRU index”
on page 129.
6. Safety information, see “Safety information” on page
155.
1
7. For intermittent problems, check the error log; see
“POST error messages” on page 10.
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. IF THE SYSTEM IS NOT PART OF A CLUSTER:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Power-off the computer and all external devices.
Check all cables and power cords.
Set all display controls to the middle position.
Power-on all external devices.
Power-on the computer.
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 141.
• Check the System Error Log. If an error was
recorded by the system, see “Symptom-to-FRU
index” on page 129.
• Start the Diagnostic Programs. See “Diagnostic
programs and error messages” on page 10.
• 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 129.
YES. Run the Diagnostic Programs. If necessary, refer to
“Diagnostic programs and error messages” on page 10.
If you receive an error, go to “Symptom-to-FRU index” on
page 129.
If the diagnostics completed successfully and you still suspect a problem, see “Undetermined problems” on page 147.

advancements in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), data
storage, and memory management. The server combines:
• Impressive performance using an innovative approach
to SMP
4
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
The server supports up to two Pentium III microprocessors. The server comes with at least one processor
installed; you can install an additional processor to
enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
• Large system memory
The memory bus in the server supports up to
2 gigabytes (GB) of system memory. The memory controller provides error correcting code (ECC) support for
up to four industry standard PC133, 3.3 V, 168-pin, 8byte, registered, synchronous-dynamic-random access
memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory modules
(DIMMs).
• System-management capabilities
The Netfinity Manager software provided on the ServerGuide CDs enables you to manage the functions of
the server locally and remotely. See “Netfinity Manager” on page 75 for more information.
• Integrated network environment support
The server comes with an Ethernet controller on the
system board. This Ethernet controller has an interface
for connecting to 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps networks. The
server automatically selects between 10BASE-T and
100BASE-TX environments. The controller provides
full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN).
• IBM ServerGuide CDs
The ServerGuide CDs included with IBM Netfinity servers 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 program and device drivers. In addition, the ServerGuide
CDs include a variety of application programs for the
server.
Reliability, availability, and serviceability
Three of the most important features in server design are
reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS). These factors help to ensure the integrity of the data stored on the
server; that the server is available when you want to use it;
and that should a failure occur, you can easily diagnose and
repair the failure with minimal inconvenience.
The following is an abbreviated list of the RAS features that
the server supports.
• Menu-driven setup, system configuration, RAID configuration, and diagnostic programs
• Power-on self-test (POST)
• Error codes and messages
• Upgradable BIOS and diagnostics
• Automatic restart after a power failure
• CRC checking on the SCSI buses
• Error checking and correcting (ECC) memory

Diagnostics
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 129 for more information.
Diagnostic tools overview
The following tools are available to help you identify and
resolve hardware-related problems:
• 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.
• 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 10 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.
If POST finishes without detecting any problems, a single
beep sounds and the first screen of the operating system or
application program appears.
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” on page 10 for more
information.
Notes:
1. If you have a power-on 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.
9
• One beep indicates the successful completion of
POST.
• More than one beep indicates that POST detected a
problem. For more information, see “Beep symptoms”
on page 129.
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 141.
Error logs
The POST error log contains the three most recent error
codes and messages that the system generated during
POST.
To view the contents of the error log, start the Configuration/Setup Utility program (see “Starting the Configuration/Setup Utility program” on page 33); then, select Error
Logs from the main menu.
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.
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.
10
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
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.
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

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.
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 Cat buttons. All other functions provided by mouse-selectable buttons are also available using the function keys.
d. You can test the USB keyboard by using the regular keyboard test. The regular mouse test can test
a USB mouse. Also, you can run the USB hub 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.
Viewing the test log
The test log will not contain any information until after the
diagnostic program has run.
Note: If you already are running the diagnostic programs,
begin with step 3.
To view the test log:
1. Turn on the server and watch the screen.
If the server is on, shut down the operating system and
restart the server.
2. When the message F2 for Diagnostics appears,
press F2.

follow the instructions on the screen.
12
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
The system maintains the test-log data while the server
is powered on. When you turn off the power to the
server, the test log is cleared.
Diagnostic error message tables
For descriptions of the error messages that might appear
when you run the diagnostic programs, see “Diagnostic error
codes” on page 133. If diagnostic error messages appear
that are not listed in those tables, make sure that the server
has the latest levels of BIOS, Advanced System Management Processor, ServeRAID, and diagnostics microcode
installed.
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 148).
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 148).
Recovering BIOS
If the BIOS code in the server has become corrupted, such
as from a power failure during a flash update, you can
recover the BIOS using the Flash ROM Page-Swap Jumper
(J38) and a BIOS flash diskette.
Note: You can obtain a BIOS flash diskette from one of the
following sources:
• Use the ServerGuide program to make a BIOS
flash diskette.
• Download a BIOS flash diskette from the World
Wide Web. Go to http://www.pc.ibm.com/support/, select IBM Server Support, and make the
selections for the server.
Diagnostics
13
The flash memory of the server consists of a primary page
and a backup page. The J38 jumper controls which page is
used to start the server. If the BIOS in the primary page is
corrupted, you can use the backup page to start the server;
then boot the BIOS Flash Diskette to restore the BIOS to the
primary page.
To recover the BIOS:
1. Turn off the server and peripheral devices and disconnect all external cables and power cords; then, remove
the cover.
2. Locate jumper J38 on the processor board (see “System board switches and jumpers” on page 42). The
jumper consists of three pins, two of which are covered
by a jumper.
3. Move the J38 jumper from its current location to connect the center pin and the pin on the opposite end of
the connector block, as shown in the following diagram:
4. Insert the BIOS flash diskette into the diskette drive.
5. Restart the server.
6. The system begins the power-on self-test (POST).
Select 1 – Update POST/BIOS from the menu that contains various flash (update) options.
7. When you are asked whether you want to save the current code to a diskette, type N.
8. You will be asked to choose which language you wish
to use. Select your language (0-7) and press Enter to
accept your choice.
9. Do not reboot the system at this time.
10. Remove the BIOS Flash Diskette from the diskette
drive.
11. Power-off the server.
12. Move jumper J38 back to its original setting to return to
normal startup mode.
13. Restart the server. The system should start up normally.

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:
• 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.
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).

Adapter considerations
Before you install adapters, review the following:
• Locate 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 your adapter, follow the
instructions that come with the adapter.
• You can install full-length adapters in all expansion
slots.
• You can install a 32-bit adapter in any of the PCI slots,
but you might want to install it in a 32-bit slot and use
the 64-bit slots for 64-bit adapters.
• Your server supports 5.0V and universal PCI adapters;
it does not support 3.3 V adapters.
• Your 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.

Installing memory-module kits
Adding memory to the server is an easy way to make programs run faster. You can increase the amount of memory
in the server by installing options called memory-module
kits. Each kit contains one industry-standard, dual-inline
memory module (DIMM). The server uses a noninterleaved
memory configuration.
The server comes with a dual inline memory module (DIMM)
installed on the system board in DIMM slot 4.
Notes:
1. When installing additional memory modules, install the
second memory module in the connector labeled
DIMM3, the third in DIMM2, and the fourth in DIMM1.
(See the following illustration for memory connector
locations.)
2. The Netfinity 3500 M20 server supports 128MB,
256 MB, and 512MB DIMMs. These DIMMs can be
installed in any memory slot. The server supports a
minimum of 128MB and a maximum of 2 GB of system
memory. See the ServerProven list at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/compat for a list of memory
modules for use with the server.
3. Installing or removing DIMMs changes the configuration information in the server. Therefore, after installing
or removing a DIMM, you must save the new configuration information by using the Configuration/Setup Utility
program. When you restart the server, the system displays a message indicating that the memory configuration has changed. Start the Configuration/Setup Utility
program and select Save Settings. See “Configuring
the server” on page 33 for more information.

the retaining clips, the DIMM has not been properly installed. In this case, open the retaining clips
and remove the DIMM; then, reinsert the DIMM.
4. If you have other options to install or remove, do so
now; otherwise, go to “Installing the side cover” on
page 60.
Installing a microprocessor kit
The server comes with one microprocessor installed on the
system board. If you install an additional microprocessor kit,
the server can operate as a symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) server. With SMP, certain operating systems and
application programs can distribute the processing load
between the microprocessors. This enhances performance
for database and point-of-sale applications, integrated manufacturing solutions, and other applications.
Notes:
1. Before you install a new microprocessor, review the
documentation that comes with the microprocessor, so
that you can determine whether you need to update the
server basic input/output system (BIOS). The latest
level of BIOS for the server is available through the
World Wide Web.
2. Obtain an SMP-capable operating system (optional).
For a list of supported operating systems, see
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on the World Wide
Web.
3. The server comes with one microprocessor installed in
microprocessor connector U12. This is the startup
(boot) microprocessor. If you install a microprocessor
in microprocessor connector U11, that one becomes
the startup processor and the microprocessor installed
in connector U12 is the application processor.

SCSI port
The server has an integrated dual-channel small computer
system interface (SCSI) controller. This controller supports
an Ultra160 SCSI internal channel. This channel supports
up to 15 SCSI devices. In addition, this controller uses:
• Double-transition clocking to achieve high transfer
rates
• Domain name validation to negotiate compatible data
transfer speeds with each device
• Cyclic-redundancy checking (CRC), instead of the
usual parity checking, to significantly improve data reliability
• An active terminator on the system board for SCSI bus
termination
If you install a SCSI adapter in the server, you can use its
SCSI connector to connect different types of small computer
system interface (SCSI) devices.
Note: If you install a PCI RAID adapter, you can move the
SCSI cable from the system-board SCSI connector to
an internal channel connector on the RAID adapter if
you want to control the internal drives from the
adapter.
SCSI cabling requirements
You can install five internal SCSI devices using the SCSI
cable that comes with the server. If you plan to attach external SCSI devices, you must install an optional SCSI adapter
and order additional SCSI cables. To select and order the
correct cables for use with external devices, contact your
IBM reseller or IBM marketing representative.
For information about the maximum length of SCSI cable
between the terminated ends of the cable, refer to the ANSI
SCSI standards. Adhering to these standards will help
ensure that the server operates properly.
Setting SCSI IDs
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.
To install external SCSI devices, you must first install an
optional SCSI PCI adapter. Refer to the information that is
provided with the device for instructions to set its SCSI ID.

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.

Ethernet port
The server comes with an integrated Ethernet controller.
This controller provides an interface for connecting to 10Mbps 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
(10Mbps or 100Mbps) 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 fullduplex (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.
Installing options
69
Failover for redundant Ethernet
The IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet Adapter or the IBM
10/100 Ethernet PCI family of adapters are optional redundant network interface cards (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.
High Performance Ethernet Modes
The Ethernet controller supports optional modes, such as
teaming, priority packets, and virtual LANs, which provide
higher performance and throughput for the server.
Teaming Mode: The Ethernet controller provides
options, called teaming options. These options increase
throughput and fault tolerance when running with Windows
NT 4.0 or NetWare 4.1x or later.
• Adapter fault tolerance (AFT) provides automatic
redundancy for the adapter. If the primary adapter fails,
the secondary adapter takes over. Adapter fault tolerance supports from 2 to 4 adapters per team.
• Adaptive load balancing (ALB) allows you to balance
the transmission data flow among 2 to 4 adapters. ALB
also includes the AFT option. You can use ALB with
any 100BASE-TX switch.
• Cisco Fast EtherChannel (FEC) creates a team of 2
to 4 adapters to increase transmission and reception
throughput. FEC also includes the AFT option. You
can only use FEC with a switch that has FEC capability.
Teaming requires you to install at least one additional Ethernet adapter. For additional information about the teaming
modes, refer to the documentation that comes with these
additional adapters.
Priority Packet Mode: Priority Packet is a traffic-prioritization utility that enables you to set up filters to process
high-priority traffic before normal traffic. You can send information from critical nodes or applications with an indicated
priority. Because you set this priority at the host or entry
point of the network, the network devices can base forwarding decisions on priority information defined in the packet.
Priority Packet information is available on the IBM Networking Web site at: http://www.ibm.com/networking/support.
Priority Packet prioritizes traffic based on priority filters.
These are parameters you assign to outgoing (transmit)
packets. Using the Priority Filter Wizard, you can set up predefined or custom priority filters based on a node (MAC)
address, Ethernet type, or by various properties of the protocol and port. Priority Packet provides two different methods
70
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
for prioritizing traffic: IEEE 802.1p tagging and High Priority
Queue.
IEEE 802.1p is a new IEEE standard for tagging, or adding
additional bytes of information to packets with different priority levels. Packets are tagged with 4 additional bytes, which
increase the packet size and indicate a priority level. When
you send these packets out on the network, the higher priority packets are transferred first. Priority packet tagging (also
known as Traffic Class Expediting) allows the adapter to
work with other elements of the network (such as switches
and routers) to deliver priority packets first. You can assign
specific priority levels from 0 (low) to 7 (high).
You can assign values to packets based on their priority
when you use the IEEE 802.1p standard for packet tagging.
This method requires a network infrastructure that supports
packet tagging. The routing devices receiving and transferring these packets on the network must support 802.1p for
tagging to be effective.
After you set up the priority filter in Priority Packet, you must
launch IBMSet and select 802.1p/802.1Q Tagging on the
Advanced tab.
Note: IEEE 802.1p tagging increases the size of the packets it tags. Some hubs and switches will not recognize the larger packets and will drop them. Check the
hub or switch documentation to see if they support
802.1p. (You can configure the switch to strip the
tags from the packets and send it on to the next destination as normal traffic.) If these devices do not support 802.1p or if you are not sure, use High Priority
Queue (HPQ) to prioritize network traffic.
The requirements for effectively using IEEE 802.1p tagging
are:
• The other devices receiving and routing 802.1p tagged
packets must support 802.1p.
• The adapters on these devices must support 802.1p.
The Ethernet controller in the Netfinity 3500 M20 and
all IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet Security Adapters
support 802.1p.
• The adapter cannot be assigned to an adapter team.
• If you are setting up VLANs and packet tagging on the
same adapter, 802.1p/802.1Q Tagging must be
enabled on the IBMSet Advanced tab.
If the network infrastructure devices do not support IEEE
802.1p or you are not sure, you can still define filters and
send packets as high priority. While High Priority Queue
(HPQ) does not provide the precise priority levels of 802.1p
tagging, it does assign traffic as either high or low priority
and sends high priority packets first. Therefore, if there are
multiple applications on a system sending packets, the packets from the application with a filter are sent out first. HPQ
does not change network routing, nor does it add any information to the packets.
Installing options
71
To assign HPQ, you can specify it using Priority Packet
when you create or assign a filter.
To effectively use HPQ tagging, the adapter cannot be
assigned to an adapter team.
Virtual LAN Mode: A virtual LAN (VLAN) is a logical
grouping of network devices put together as a LAN, regardless of their physical grouping or collision domains. Using
VLANs increases network performance and improves network security.
VLANs offer you the ability to group users and devices
together into logical workgroups. This can simplify network
administration when connecting clients to servers that are
geographically dispersed across the building, campus, or
enterprise network.
Normally, VLANs are configured at the switch and any computer can be a member of one VLAN per installed network
adapter. The Ethernet controller supersedes this by communicating directly with the switch, allowing multiple VLANs on
a single network adapter (up to 64 VLANs).
To set up VLAN membership, the Ethernet controller must
be attached to a switch that has VLAN capability. You also
need to use Windows NT 4.0 or later, or Novell NetWare
4.1x or later.
Notes:
1. Windows NT versions prior to 4.0 do not support
VLANs.
2. VLANs require NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3.0 and the
NDIS driver hotfix from Microsoft.
3. In Windows NT, VLANs cannot be implemented on
controllers that have been configured for teaming
options. NetWare can support teaming options and
VLANs on the same adapters.
To join a VLAN from Windows NT 4.0:
1. Create a VLAN on the switch. Use the parameters you
assign there to join the VLAN from the server. Refer to
the switch documentation for more information.
2. Double-click the Network icon in the Control Panel window.
3. On the Adapters tab, select the adapter you want to be
on the VLAN and select Properties.
4. In IBMSet, select Join VLAN. Note that VLANs cannot
be assigned to adapters that are already defined to
have an adapter teaming option.
5. Enter the VLAN ID and VLAN name. The VLAN ID
must match the VLAN ID of the switch. The ID range is
from 1 to 1000. The VLAN name is for information only
and does not need to match the name on the switch.
6. Select Join VLAN. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each
VLAN you want the server to join. The VLANs you add
are listed on the Adapters tab.
7. Select Close and restart the computer.

Netfinity Manager
Netfinity Manager provides powerful hardware systemsmanagement capabilities, including access to all systems on
the network that are running Netfinity Manager or Client Services for Netfinity Manager. In addition to all standard Client
Services for Netfinity Manager functions, Netfinity Manager
also features directory transfers and file, remote screen captures, and remote command-line sessions. Netfinity Manager also enables you to export data collected by System
Information Tool, System Profile, Software Inventory, and
System Monitor to a DB2, Lotus Notes, or SQL or DB2 via
an open database connectivity (ODBC) database (ODBC
export is available on Windows NT systems only). Finally,
Netfinity Manager enables some services to be started at
scheduled times and dates for simplified, automated systems management.
Netfinity Manager also provides two powerful features that
enable you to access the Netfinity Manager system and all
Netfinity Manager systems from a system that is not
attached to the managing system network:
• Serial Connection Control
Use the Serial Connection Control service to use a Netfinity Manager system modem to establish a connection with any Netfinity Manager system that has a
modem. Once this connection is established, the Netfinity Manager has full access to Netfinity Manager services, just as though the remote system were part of
the managing system network.
• Netfinity Manager for Web
Netfinity Manager for Web enables access and remote
control of the Netfinity Manager system over the Internet, using any system that has an Internet connection
and a World Wide Web (WWW) browser. With the Netfinity Manager for Web, the Netfinity Manager systems
can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
Managing your IBM Netfinity server with
Netfinity Manager
A Netfinity Manager systems management environment
consists of two parts:
• A systems management console running Netfinity Manager. The systems management console is the system
from which administrative tasks are performed.
• Client systems running Client Services for Netfinity
Manager. Client Services for Netfinity Manager runs on
all client systems in your network and enables Netfinity
Manager to remotely monitor, inventory, manage, and
troubleshoot the systems on which it is installed.
Once you have installed Netfinity Manager and Client Services for Netfinity Manager on the appropriate systems you
are ready to use Netfinity Manager to remotely inventory,
monitor, and troubleshoot the client systems in your network.
75
The copy of Netfinity Manager that is included with ServerGuide entitles you to one Netfinity Manager installation. You
are also entitled to additional installations of Client Services
for Netfinity Manager, which can be installed on other systems in your network. Furthermore, additional Netfinity Manager and Client Services for Netfinity Manager licenses are

• 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 enable one or more of the available Netfinity
Manager Options:

Netfinity Manager service descriptions
Each Netfinity Manager service consists of a base program
and a graphical user interface (GUI). The service base programs enable Netfinity Manager to remotely access the individual services, but do not allow for local access. The
service GUIs, when functioning along with their respective
base program, enable access to the service.
Some services are available only on systems with certain
system configurations. These services are:
• Alert on LAN Configuration (available only on systems
running Windows 95 or later or Windows NT 4.0 or
later)
• Capacity Management (available only on systems running Windows NT 4.0 or later)
• Cluster Manager (available only on systems running
Windows NT 4.0 or later)
• DMI Browser (requires DMI Service Layer)
• ECC Memory Setup (requires ECC memory)
• Predictive Failure Analysis (requires a PFA-enabled
hard disk drive)

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.
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 standalone use 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 you to remotely monitor the performance of
servers 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 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.
Netfinity Manager
101
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
102
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
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, rebuild failing drives, add (or remove)
logical drives, perform data integrity tests, and many other
RAID system tasks. This service is available for stand-alone
use 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 clicks and keystrokes that are 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.
Netfinity Manager
103
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.
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 stand-alone use and network
use by any system that has a System Partition.
104
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
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.
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
Netfinity Manager
105
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.
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 pro-
108
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
gram 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
[==]
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.

Symptom-to-FRU index
This index supports Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 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.

Undetermined problems
You are here because the diagnostic tests did not identify
the failure, the Devices List is incorrect, or the system is
inoperative.
Note: A corrupt CMOS can cause undetermined problems.
If power problems are suspected:
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).
Symptom-to-FRU index
147
• Any external devices
• Surge suppressor device (on the computer)
• Modem, printer, mouse, or non-IBM devices
• Each adapter
• Drives
• Memory-Modules (Minimum requirement = one
128 MB DIMM)
Note: Minimum operating requirements are:
a. 1 Power Supply
b. System Board
c. 1 Microprocessor
d. 1 Terminator Card in Slot 2
e. 1 Memory Module (minimum of 1 DIMM in
slot labeled DIMM 1)
4. Power-on the computer. If the problem remains, suspect the following FRUs in the order listed:
Power Supply
System 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 system board, then
the power supply.
2. If you suspect a networking problem and all the system
tests pass, suspect a network cabling problem external
to the system.

Related service information
Note: The service procedures are designed to help you isolate problems. They are written with the assumption
that you have model-specific training on all computers, or that are familiar with the computers, functions,
terminology, and service information provided in this
manual.
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:
• Observe good housekeeping in the area of the
machines during and after maintenance.
• 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.
• Do not perform any action that causes hazards to the
customer, or that makes the equipment unsafe.
• Before you start the machine, ensure that other service
representatives and the customer's personnel are not
in a hazardous position.
• Place removed covers and other parts in a safe place,
away from all personnel, while you are servicing the
machine.
• Keep your tool case away from walk areas so that other
people will not trip over it.
• 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.
• 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.
• Do not wear jewelry, chains, metal-frame eyeglasses,
or metal fasteners for your clothing.
Remember: Metal objects are good electrical conductors.
155
• 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.
• After service, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels,
and ground wires. Replace any safety device that is
worn or defective.
• Reinstall all covers correctly before returning the
machine to the customer.
Electrical safety
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.
• 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.
• Do not work alone under hazardous conditions or near
equipment that has hazardous voltages.
• Disconnect all power before:
— Performing a mechanical inspection
— Working near power supplies
— Removing or installing main units
• 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.
• If you need to work on a machine that has exposed
electrical circuits, observe the following precautions:
156
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
— 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 poweredon 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.
• Regularly inspect and maintain your electrical hand
tools for safe operational condition.
• Do not use worn or broken tools and testers.
• Never assume that power has been disconnected from
a circuit. First, check that it has been powered-off.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.)
• 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
Related service information
157
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:
• Electrical hazards, especially primary power (primary
voltage on the frame can cause serious or fatal electrical shock).
• Explosive hazards, such as a damaged CRT face or
bulging capacitor
• 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.
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 dischargesensitive 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.
158
Netfinity 3500-M20 – Type 8657 Models 21Y, 22Y, 31Y, 32Y,
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:
• Keep the parts in protective packages until they are
inserted into the product.
• Avoid contact with other people.
• Wear a grounded wrist strap against your skin to eliminate static on your body.
• Prevent the part from touching your clothing. Most
clothing is insulative and retains a charge even when
you are wearing a wrist strap.
• 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.
• 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 batteryoperated system. You can use coax or connectoroutside shells on these systems.
— Use the round ground-prong of the ac plug on acoperated 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.

Problem determination tips
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.
• Machine type and model
• Processor or hard disk upgrades
• 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?
• Reference/Diagnostics version
— Type and version level
• Hardware configuration
— Print (print screen) configuration currently in use
— BIOS level
• 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.
