System fault LED glows amber when a hardware or system failure occurs.
Pressing the fault LED reset button turns this LED off, but does not correct
the fault.
Power LED glows green when the server has power and flashes green when
the server is in power saving mode. This LED glows amber when AC power
to the server is on, but the internal (DC) power is off which means there is
power to the server but the server is powered down.
Fault LED reset button resets any of the fault LEDs to its original state in
the default mode. This button does not correct or clear the fault. If the fault
condition persists, the appropriate LED will turn on again until the fault is
corrected. This button can be reprogrammed through a BIOS option to
generate a Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) when pressed. The NMI function
can produce varied results depending on the software support for NMI
handling.
Power button turns the server on and off.
LAN1 LED blinks green when there is traffic on the LAN1 connector. Glows
amber when the LAN1 connector experiences an interruption in connectivity.
LAN2 LED blinks green when there is traffic on the LAN2 connector. Glows
amber when the LAN2 connector experiences an interruption in connectivity.
Blower fault LED glows amber when one of the blowers has failed or entered
an out-of-tolerance state.
Fan fault LED glows amber when one of the fans has failed or entered an
out-of-tolerance state.
USB port provides front panel access for USB peripherals.

System Setup
Setting up the server
Use the instructions in the Gateway 7450R Rackmount Installation Guide that
came with the server to assemble the server.
You should prepare a safe working environment before assembling the server
by following these guidelines:
Important
Keep the boxes and packing material. If you need to send
the server to Gateway for repairs, you must use the original
packaging or your warranty may be voided.
■
Obtain an adequately rated uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A UPS
protects against AC line spikes, power interruptions, and other power
fluctuations that may damage the server.
■
Protect the server from extreme temperature and humidity. Do not
expose it to direct sunlight, heater ducts, or other heat-generating objects.
■
Route external cables carefully to make sure they do not block air vents
or impede airflow.
■
Make sure that the inlet air temperature within the rack cabinet remains
below the specified limit of 40° C (104° F).
■
Keep the server away from equipment that generates magnetic fields,
such as unshielded stereo speakers. Even a telephone placed too close to
the server may cause interference.
System Setup
11
8507328.book Page 12 Thursday, February 15, 2001 11:28 AM
■
Plug the server into a wall outlet, power strip, or uninterruptible power
supply (UPS).
Warning
For the power supply of this equipment, an approved
power cord has to be used. For a rated current up to 6 A
and an equipment weight up to 6 kg, a power cord not
lighter than H05VV-F, 3 G, 0.75 mm2, has to be used.
Warning
Zum Netzanschluß dieses Gerätes ist eine geprüfte
Leitung zu verwenden. Für einen Nennstrom bis 6 A und
einem Gerätewicht größer 6 kg ist eine Leitung nicht
leichter als H05VV-F, 3 G, 0.75 mm2 einzusetzen.
Starting the server
Before you start the server for the first time, make sure:
■
The power supply is autosensing and it automatically determines the
voltage of the incoming power source.
■
All cables are firmly connected to the proper ports on the back panel of
the server.
Caution
■
Electricity can flow from connected peripherals into the
system causing a shock. Make sure the server and
peripherals are turned off and unplugged from the power
outlet when you connect peripherals to the server.
The server and monitor are plugged into an AC outlet, power strip, or
UPS and that the power strip or UPS is turned on.
To start the system:
1 If you have connected the system components to a power strip or UPS,
make sure all the system components are turned off, then turn on the
power strip or UPS.
2 Turn on the monitor.

Processors
The system is compatible with the Intel® Pentium® III 866 MHz and faster
processors with 133 MHz front-side bus (FSB). As many as two processors may
be installed in the system. You do not need to install additional voltage
regulator modules (VRMs), because the VRMs for both processors are built into
the system board.
The server uses different heat sinks for the primary and secondary processors.
When ordering a replacement or upgrade processor, make sure that you order
the correct processor kit for the processor you are installing. The primary
processor, located closer to the front of the server, uses a smaller heatsink.
The secondary processor, located closer to the back of the server, uses a larger
heatsink.
Replacing the primary processor
When replacing a processor, order a processor upgrade from The Accessory
Store on the Gateway Web site.
Caution
A heatsink must be installed on each processor. Installing
a processor without a heatsink could result in damage to,
or failure of, the processor.
To replace the primary processor:
1 Turn off the system and disconnect the power cord and all other external
peripheral devices.
2 Open the case. See “Opening the case” on page 18 and “Preventing static
electricity discharge” on page 17.
3 Locate the primary processor, see “System board” on page 6 for the
location of the system board components.

Managing the
Server
Avoiding power source problems
Surge suppressors, line conditioners, and uninterruptible power supplies can
help protect the server against power source problems.
Surge suppressors
During a power surge, the voltage level of electricity coming into the server
can increase far above normal levels and cause data loss or system damage.
Protect your server and peripherals by connecting them to a surge suppressor,
which will absorb voltage surges and prevent them from reaching your server.
When purchasing a surge suppressor:
■
Make sure the surge suppressor meets the appropriate product safety
certification for your location, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or
Conformite European (CE).
■
Check the maximum amount of voltage the suppressor allows to pass
through the line. The lower the voltage that the suppressor allows to pass
through, the better the protection for the server.
■
Check the energy absorption (dissipation) rating. The higher the energy
absorption rating, the better the protection for the server.
■
Check line-conditioner capabilities. A line conditioner smooths out some
normal line noise (small voltage fluctuations) of an electrical supply.
Managing the Server
67
8507328.book Page 68 Thursday, February 15, 2001 11:28 AM
Line conditioners
A line conditioner protects the server from the small fluctuations in voltage
from an electrical supply. Most systems can handle this variation (line noise)
without problems. However, some electrical sources include more line noise
than normal. Line noise can also be a problem if the server is located near,
or shares a circuit with, a device that causes electromagnetic interference, such
as a television or a motor.
Some surge suppressors and uninterruptible power supplies include simple
line-conditioning capabilities.
Uninterruptible power supplies
Use a standby uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect your server from
data loss during a total power failure. A UPS uses a battery to keep your server
running temporarily during a power failure and lets you save your work and
shut down your server. You cannot run your server for an extended period
of time while using only the UPS.
Maintain and manage your hard drive
Regular maintenance can keep your hard drive operating efficiently and good
file management can keep the server free of unwanted files while making
important files secure and easier to find.
Hard drive maintenance utility
If you are using the Windows NT operating system, you can help maintain
the performance of your hard drive by regularly using Check Disk.
Important
For other operating systems, such as Windows 2000 or
Novell Netware, refer to the appropriate operating system
manual.
Using Check Disk in Windows NT
Bad sectors are parts of a hard drive or diskette that will not hold data. A lost
allocation unit is a group of sectors that has lost its place in the table that
the operating system uses to locate files. Check Disk checks the hard drive
for bad sectors or lost allocation units and lets you fix them.
68
Gateway 7450R Server System Manual
8507328.book Page 69 Thursday, February 15, 2001 11:28 AM
Use Check Disk from once a week to once a month, depending on how often
you use the server. Also use Check Disk if you have any hard drive problems.
To use Check Disk:
1 Double-click the My Computer icon. The My Computer window opens.
2 Right-click the drive you want to check.
3 Select Properties. The drive’s properties window opens.
4 Click the Tools tab.
5 At Error-checking, click Check Now. The Check Disk window opens.
6 Scan the entire hard drive by selecting Scan for and attempt recovery of bad
sectors.
7 Click Start. Check Disk checks the drive for errors.
8 Follow any on-screen instructions for completing the scan.
Hard drive management practices
By deleting unneeded files from your hard drive and managing the space that
is automatically allocated for saving certain files, you can help maintain the
performance of the hard drive. We suggest that you first check your hard drive
for available space, then back up important files prior to deleting unneeded
files, in case you delete important files by mistake.
Checking hard drive space
In Windows, you can see a chart of the available hard drive space.
To check hard drive space:
1 Double-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop. The My Computer
window opens.
2 Right-click the drive you want to check.
3 Select Properties. The drive’s properties window opens. The General tab
shows you the available and used space on the drive.
Managing the Server
69
8507328.book Page 70 Thursday, February 15, 2001 11:28 AM
Backing up files
Regularly backing up your files protects you from losing data and lets you
keep fewer files on your hard drive. Back up old files to the network, a large
capacity disk drive, or tape drive and delete the files from the hard drive. This
server does not support the installation of an internal large capacity disk drive
or tape storage drive.
You can use the software that came with your tape backup drive or your large
capacity disk drive to back up the files. You can also back up files by running
the Backup utility that came with your operating system. In Windows NT,
Backup copies files to a tape drive.
To run Backup in Windows NT:
1 Click Start, then select Programs, Administrative Tools, then Backup.
2 Follow the on-screen instructions.
Deleting unneeded files
By deleting unneeded files from the hard drive, you free up space on the hard
drive and help improve hard-drive performance. The following sections give
you some simple ways to delete unneeded files.
Deleting Windows temporary files
During normal operation, Windows constantly creates new temporary (.tmp)
files. You can safely delete all but the most recent .tmp files.
To delete .tmp files:
1 Open Windows Explorer, then select Tools, Find, then Files and Folders.
2 In the Named text box, type *.tmp
3 In the Look in drop down list, select your drive letter.
4 Click Find Now. The list of .tmp files appears.
5 Click Modified above the list. To see the Modified button, you may need
to maximize the Find window. The list is sorted by date.
6 Highlight all the files in the list except those with the current date.
7 Press SHIFT + DELETE. A dialog box opens asking if you want to delete the
files.
8 Click Yes. The files are deleted.
70
Gateway 7450R Server System Manual
8507328.book Page 71 Thursday, February 15, 2001 11:28 AM
Deleting temporary Internet files
As you visit Web sites, your browser stores temporary Internet files on your
hard drive in a memory cache and a disk cache. Files in the memory cache are
removed when you turn off your server. Files are saved in the disk cache until
the space designated for the cache is full. See your browser’s Help files for
instructions on emptying the disk cache.
You can save space on the hard drive by decreasing the size of the Internet
file disk cache. See your browser’s Help files for instructions.
Emptying the Recycle Bin
When you delete a file from your hard drive in Windows, it is not immediately
removed from the hard drive. Instead, the file is moved into the Recycle Bin.
Because files are stored in the Recycle Bin and not deleted from the hard drive
immediately, you can retrieve a file that you accidentally delete from the hard
drive.
To delete all the files from the Recycle Bin, right-click the Recycle Bin icon
on the desktop, then click Empty Recycle Bin.
You can save space on the hard drive by decreasing the size of the Recycle Bin.
To decrease the size of the Recycle Bin:
1 Right-click the Recycle Bin, then select Properties.
2 At the Global tab, select either Configure drives independently or Use one
setting for all drives.
3 If you are configuring drives independently, click the tab for the drive
you want to configure.
4 Move the slider to set the size of the Recycle Bin. A good initial setting
is 5%.
5 Click OK.

Protecting the server against viruses
A virus is a program that attaches itself to a program or data file on a computer,
then spreads from one computer to another. Viruses can damage data, cause
computers to malfunction, and can display annoying or offensive messages.
Some viruses can go unnoticed for long periods of time because they are
activated by a certain date or time. Protect your server from viruses by:
■
Using an anti-virus program to check files and programs that are on
diskettes, attached to e-mail messages, or downloaded from the Internet.
After you run the anti-virus program you can back up your files to
diskettes, a separate hard drive, or a high-capacity storage drive.
■
Keeping your anti-virus program updated.
■
Obtaining all software from reputable sources and checking the software
for viruses before installing it.
■
Disabling macros on suspicious Microsoft Word and Excel files. These
programs will warn you if a document that you are opening contains a
macro that might have a virus.
To remove a virus:
1 Find and remove the virus immediately using an anti-virus program.
2 Turn off your server and leave it off for at least 30 seconds.
3 Turn on the server and rescan for the virus.
4 If the virus is still present, contact the manufacturer of your anti-virus
program or Gateway Client Care.

System administration and control
The server has two server-management tools that you can use to administer
and control the server. These tools are ManageX Event Manager and the
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent.
ManageX Event Manager
ManageX lets the system administrator manage multiple systems on a
Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Novell Netware network from a single
window, and implement commands and policies across the network with a
single action. With this tool, you can automate system management tasks,
which can be triggered by specific events or at specified thresholds.
You can find additional information about the ManageX Event Manager
under Documentation on the Server Companion CD which came with the
server.
SNMP agent
The SNMP agent is software that links the hardware to ManageX Event
Manager. Each significant hardware event generates an interrupt that is
detected by the SNMP agent and then routed to ManageX. The SNMP agent
is provided on the Server Companion CD (SCCD) and must be installed on
the server before system administration and control will function properly.
Installing the SNMP agent in Windows NT
The server must be prepared for the server management software.
■
You must download and install WMICORE.EXE first to provide a WMI
environment in Windows NT. Download WMICORE.EXE from
msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/sdks/wmi/download.asp. When you
install WMICORE.EXE, check the Install WMI SNMP Provider checkbox in
the Components dialog box.
■
SNMP service must be installed. If not, install SNMP service through
Windows NT before you install the SNMP agent.

System security
You can also set security measures in the BIOS Setup utility which establishes
passwords and automatic system lockouts. The system also includes server
management software that monitors the chassis intrusion switch.
Mechanical access and monitoring
The system includes a chassis intrusion switch. When the top panel is opened,
the switch transmits a signal to the system board, where server management
software processes the signal.
Security through the BIOS Setup utility
The BIOS Setup utility provides several security features to prevent
unauthorized or accidental access to the system. Once the security measures
are enabled, access to the system is allowed only after you enter the correct
password. For example, the utility lets you:
■
Set and enable the supervisor and user passwords
■
Control access to the Setup utility
■
Restrict diskette drive access
■
Restrict access to the hard drive boot sector
Configure and enable the security features using the BIOS Setup utility.
Disabling the security features does not change the state of system power. That
is, if you press and release the power switch while security is on, the system
will not power off when security is later disabled. However, if the front panel
power switch remains pressed when security is disabled, the system will turn
off.
