Chapter Three System Setup
In this chapter, the regular jumper of motherboard and BIOS function setup of
this server are introduced. Only operator or administrator with qualification of system
maintenance can implement these operations described in this part.
3.1 System BIOS Setup
BIOS is a basic input and output system. With some special setting programs,
it can adjust the system parameter and the hardware parameter. As BIOS has great
influence on the starting and running of the system, setting parameters improperly
may arise the conflict among hardware resources, or affect the system’s performance.
Hence understanding the BIOS setup is significant to server configuration. If there is no
especial requirement, we suggest you use the default value and not alter the parameters.
Notes:
1.Before the server BIOS setup is altered, please record the corresponding original
setup. Hence when there are operating problems in the system due to the alteration, the
setup can be restored.
2.The factory default system setup is usually the optimized setup. Don’t try to
alter the parameters before you understand their denotations.
3.The common setup is introduced in detail in this chapter. For items less used in
the application, this chapter only offers simple instruction or just omits the instruction.
4.The contents of the BIOS may differ due to the different configurations of
products; no detailed introduction will be provided here.
3.1.1 How to Enter the BIOS Setup
Power up and start the server. When the picture of “Press [DEL] to SETUP or [TAB]
to POST”, press [DEL], wait for a while and then the system enters BIOS setup.
If the system does not enter BIOS setup after previous steps, please press [Ctrl][Alt]-[Del] at the same time to reset the system, and repeat operations above. (If the
prompt displays to press [DEL] again, please press it quickly.)
Notes: some items in BIOS cannot be configured, for example, information of
system detecting and configuration. For some items, there is a right pointer, which
means if you select this item and press [Enter], cascading menu or submenu will be
displayed on the screen.

Chapter Six Install Operating System
This chapter primarily focuses on the method for manually installing the
prevailing operating system to the server. The Ruijie server kit supports the following
operating systems that can be installed intelligently and automatically, such as Windows
OS and Linux OS. As for the actually supported operating systems, the operating
systems in the drop-down box of [Select the Operating System] of the software shall
prevail. Some configurations of the server may not support automatic setup of these
operating systems. The operating system of other versions shall be set up manually
according to the actual need.
During manual setup of the operating system, some operating system may need
the floppy drive or Inspur driver U disk to load the driver of hard disk controller. Refer
to the readme.pdf file under the root directory in Inspur driver CD for the making
method of the driver floppy disk. If the configuration you purchased is configured with
Inspur driver U disk, you may refer to relevant contents of this chapter for the making
method of Inspur driver U disk.
If your server is configured with external RAID card or SAS sub-card, please refer
to the electronic version of User Manual in the CD of external RAID card or SAS subcard to add the driver of the hard disk controller. If it uses onboard SATA controller,
please make the driver of controller according to the attached driver CD. For network
card driver, video driver and system patch program, the guidance in the chapter can
also be referred for setup.
This installation instruction states the manual installation of operating system,
taking two configurations of onboard SATA HostRAID and onboard SATA AHCI as
examples. If your server is configured with other external RAID card, please refer
to the User Manual in the attached CD to load the driver of the hard disk controller.
For network card driver, video driver and system patch program, the guidance in the
chapter can also be referred for setup.
It is suggested that you confirm in advance that the purchased machine
configuration supports the version of operating system to be installed
34
Chapter Six Install Operating System
6.1 Application Instructions for Inspur Driver U Disk
Under Windows system and Linux system, Inspur driver U disk can be identified
as two parts: virtual floppy driver [3.5 floppy disk (A :)] and normal partition of U disk
[UDISK PRO]. When you install some operating systems manually, you can use Inspur
driver U disk to load the drive of hard disk controller (at present, the operating systems
that use Inspur driver U disk to load the hard disk controller support Windows XP or
above versions, Red Hat Linux 4.5 or above versions, and Suse Linux 9.0 SP2 or above
versions).
Warning:
During the installation of the operating system by using Inspur driver, it may
detect Inspur driver U disk on the disk partition interface. At this moment, the
user must distinguish U disk from hard disk, and never delete or format U disk.
During the installation of the operating system, if it needs to boot the system
from hard disk after reboot, it must enter the server BIOS for setting to ensure
the starting sequence of hard disk is prior to the starting sequence of U disk and
the system can boot from the disk. If the starting sequence of U disk is prior to the
starting sequence of hard disk, the system will fail to boot from hard disk.
The following introduces the making method for the driver of onboard hard disk
controller when using Inspur driver U disk to install the operating system. For driver
making of external RAID card or SAS card, please refer to the corresponding contents
in the driver CD of external board card.
Make Driver
1. Prepare a set of computer installed with Windows system, and connect the
Inspur driver U disk to the USB interface of the computer, as shown in the picture
below. Inspur driver U disk will be identified as two parts: virtual floppy driver [3½
Floppy (A:)] and normal partition of U disk [Removable Disk (E:)], in which, the disk
character E in [Removable Disk (E:)] will be different according to the actual partitions
of your computer.
35
Chapter Six Install Operating System
Notes: Before connecting the Inspur driver U disk to the computer, if your
computer is configured with standard floppy, please enter BIOS and close this
standard floppy; if your computer is connected with USB floppy, please first
disconnect USB floppy. It must guarantee that when the Inspur driver U disk is
connected to your computer, the disk character of virtual floppy driver under
Windows system shall be identified to be A:, and only by this can the subsequent
normal driver making be guaranteed.
2. Put the driver CD (Inspur system driver CD and RAID card driver CD) into
optical drive, and the driver making software will operate automatically. If the system
forbids the automatic operation of CD, please enter CD directory and operate dolphin.
bat (Inspur system driver CD) in CD or setup.exe (RAID card driver CD) in CD
directory.
3. Methods for making drivers by using Inspur driver CD:
(1) After operating dolphin.bat, the system will enter the interface of “Welcome to
Inspur driver CD”:

(3) After you select the corresponding operating system and the controller driver
to be made according to the actual need, click [Next] button and make corresponding
driver. Different operating systems correspond to different making interfaces and
methods of the driver.
● Driver making of Windows system
When the driver of Windows operating system is made, copy the driver directly
into the virtual floppy drive A: of Inspur driver U disk.
Select the Windows version to be installed and driver to be made, and then click
[Next].
The system will display a prompt as shown in the following picture. Please
confirm that Inspur driver U disk is well connected. Format the virtual floppy drive A:
of Inspur driver U disk, and then click [OK] to start the driver making.
After the driver making is completed, the system will pop up the window,
prompting “Driver has been completed”. Click [OK] to complete the making of driver.
●Notes for using Inspur driver U disk to load drive under windows system
During the installation of Windows operating system, if the driver of hard disk
controller is loaded by using Inspur driver U disk, entering the interface of disk
partition, Inspur driver U disk will occupy a disk letter. If the disk is not partitioned, U
disk will occupy disk C:. If the disk has other partitions, U disk will occupy other disk
letter (please distinguish according to the actual hard disk partition).
If there are other partitions on the disk, at this moment, it needs to delete all of
them and then create new partitions on the hard disk. The U disk will not occupy disk
letter any more.
38
Chapter Six Install Operating System
If the disk is not partitioned, it needs to create one disk partition on the unallocated
space, and then delete this newly created disk partition. And at this time the U disk will
not occupy any disk letter any more. Then create disk partition based on actual need,
and complete the installation of operating system according to the instructions.
Notes: Be sure to distinguish U disk from hard disk, and never delete or format U
disk.

system.
Cold boot again, switch off and restart the system power so that to clear up Power button
the system memory, to self-check the POST again, to restart the operating
system and to power up all peripherals again.
7.2 Problems When Starting the Machine
Some problems often occur when the machine is started, generally due to
incorrect hardware installation and configuration. You may find and solve the problems
by the following methods.
7.2.1 System Can Not Be Powered on
After pressing the power button, the power light is not on and the system stays in
non-electric state. Please try the following steps:
1. Check whether your power socket can supply power normally and the power
cable is correctly connected.
2. Repeatedly press the power button to start the machine (pay attention not to
57
Chapter Seven Common Problems and Trouble-shooting
exerting too much force).
3. Disconnect the power cable from the system and open the chassis to check.
4. Check the fastness of the cable connection and accessory plugging in the
chassis.
5. Remove other external components other than Inspur’s.
6. Pack the chassis, connect the power cable correctly and start the machine.
7.2.2 Monitor Has No Display
The server can be powered on (the host can start and run normally), but the
monitor doesn’t work:
1. Check the correctness and fastness of the signal cable and power cable
connected to the monitor.
2. Make sure to power on the display.
3. Adjust the contrast and brightness of the monitor to confirm whether it can
display or not.
4. Shut down the system and disconnect the power cable to check whether there is
curve in the pin at the connecting end of the monitor signal cable and the host.
5. Find another monitor for test if possible.
6. If the machine is installed with components other than Inspur ones, please
remove them first.
7. With the permission of Inspur technical support personnel, you may pull and
plug RAM and clear CMOS for test.
7.2.3 Installation System Can’t Find Hard Disk
1. When installing the system directly booted with the system CD, if it prompts
that no hard disk can be found, please check the normality of the disk state and poweron self-check hard disk state.
2. If the power-on self check can detect the hard disk but the hard disk can’t be
detected when installing the system, it may be caused by the following conditions:
● If you are using the system CD to boot and install the operating system directly,
the hard disk drive is generally added through the floppy driver or Inspur driver U disk.
When using USB floppy driver to add the drive, please set the BIOS first and close the
onboard floppy driver controller. When using Inspur driver U disk to add the drive,
please connect Inspur driver U disk when starting the server.
● Please check whether the driver having been made is correct or not (the drive
58
Chapter Seven Common Problems and Trouble-shooting
for external RAID card should be made directly from the attached RAID card driver
CD) and whether there is fault in the floppy disk or Inspur driver U disk.
7.2.4 Instruction of Onboard SATA Controller
If it is configured onboard SATA HostRAID, it only supports windows system of
above Windows XP versions and connects 6 SATA devices at most.
7.2.5 Keyboard and Mouse Do Not Work
1. Check whether the cable joint of the mouse and keyboard is plugged and
connected correctly. Make sure the joint pin has no curve.
2. Check whether the mouse setting in the control panel of the operating system is
correct or not.
3. Clean the scrolling and drive shaft of the mouse.
4. It is suggested that you use the keyboard and mouse tested for compatibility by
Inspur or replace with other keyboard and mouse for testing.
7.2.6 System Blue Screen, Halt or Restart
For blue screen, restart or halt of the machine in the utilization of the system, you
may refer to the following measures:
1. If other external non-Inspur components or some application program software
are installed before the fault, it is suggested removing it and going on to test your
server.
2. Use the latest antivirus software for antivirus test.
3. It is suggested that you record the displayed information code for blue screen,
such as: stop c000000218.....; stop: 0x0000007b. This kind of information reveals
problems in the system. It is suggested that you reinstall it. For the installation process,
you can refer to the user manual.
4. If all above operations failed to solve the problem, it is suggested that you
backup the file winnt/minidump in disk C, and call the service center for support
from professional technical engineers who may ask you to provide minidump file
for further analysis on the cause for blue screen and halt. If there is no minidump
folder in disk C, please refer to the following steps: right-click on My Computer,
select [Property]→[advanced]→[startup and recovery], then select [settings], change
[write debugging information] in the next page to “small RAM dump” and restart the
machine. The system will produce minidump file automatically in the next blue screen.
59
Chapter Seven Common Problems and Trouble-shooting
7.3 Machine Alarm
If there’s machine alarm in startup or utilization process, please refer to the
following measures:
1. If this happens after you plugged in some external board, you may need to pull
off this device and to do another test. If the alarm goes off, it shows that your external
board is incompatible with the machine. It is suggested not to use it any more; if the
alarm is still on, please go on referring to the following steps.
2. Locate the alarm sound:
● When the alarm sound is from the front of the chassis, usually we notice
abnormal changes of the fault indicating light. There is the possibility of abnormal fans
or hard disk module;
● If the alarm sound is from the rear of the chassis, please check whether a
redundant power supply is configured or not and whether there is an abnormal status
light of the power supply module or a module without power cable (when power alarm
goes on, the shield switch can be pressed to stop it);
● If the alarm sound is in the chassis, the alarm may be from motherboard, RAID
card or hard disk back plane. If it is also accompanied by no display on the monitor
or power on faults, there is high possibility of something wrong with motherboard.
You can try to pull or plug RAM or clear CMOS; if the starting self-check is normal
and the alarm starts when the RAID card is under test, and there is abnormal array
information, then it is likely that the RAID card has set off the alarm. There may be
array abnormality; when the hard disk back plane alarms, there is always abnormal
status light of the hard disk on the front panel, which can be used to help analysis.
3. After having collected the basic information, please feedback the detailed alarm
information to Inspur technical support personnel in a timely manner. We will make
further analysis and judgment and help you solve the problem as soon as possible.
7.4 Additional Notes
1. In order to guarantee the reliability of the system, it is suggested that you use
the component of the relevant Model tested and authenticated by us when expanding
and equipping components.
2. Please guarantee the fine electricity utilization environment of the server,
normal voltage input and earth-connecting condition and temperature and humidity and
60
Chapter Seven Common Problems and Trouble-shooting
so on within the normal range.
3. For special needs, when transferring the server, pay attention to avoiding the
vibration and carry out in power off condition..
4. The out of order problem introduction in Windows Server 2008 system
The phenomenon that the system disk /RAID volume is inconsistent with the
physical disk /RAID volume will appear when this product is in the AHCI mode
(with more than one disks) or HostRAID mode (with more than one RAID volume)
of SATA configuration when installing Windows Server 2008 operating system. This
phenomenon is the Bug of Windows Server 2008 operating system.
In the AHCI mode, if you want to install the operating system on the first physical
disk, when installing the operating system, you can insert the first disk and pull out
other disks. You can insert other disks after the installation is completed. Or enter
BIOS→SATA Configuration →SATA Port item and set SATA Port3/ Port4/ Port5 item
to [Disabled]. At this time, the system will be installed to the first physical disk. After
the completion of operating system installation, set SATA Port3/Port4/ Port5 item to
[Enabled].
In the HostRAID mode, please record the name of the RAID volume when you
are doing the RAID setting. When installing the operating system, please distinguish
the name of RAID volume so that the operating system can be installed in specified
place.
5. Explanation that the disk array capacity under SATA HostRAID mode is not the
maximum capacity.
This product integrates SATA HostRAID. During the creation of RAID
volume, the system will automatically analyze the size of the physical disk and will
automatically adjust the size of the RAID volume to 97% of the minimum physical disk
volume. Because of the different suppliers, physical disk capacity may vary.

● Pictures in the Guide just for reference, please give priority to real products.
9.1 Cabinet Preparation
Angle rail adjustment: in order to guarantee the 2U server can be installed in the
cabinet normally, the clearance between the front and rear part of the angle rail should
be adjusted to be at least larger than 740mm.
Leveling cabinet: the cabinet must be installed in a stable place. Adjust the
four support feet at the bottom of the adjustment cabinet to make the cabinet stable
on the ground. Meanwhile, dismount the cabinet door for convenience of guide rail
installation.
Cabinet grounding: to avoid electric shock, a grounding device must be installed
in the cabinet. If the server power line is installed in the power socket, which constitutes
a portion of the cabinet, grounding should be properly provided for the cabinet. If the
server power line is inserted into the power socket in the wall, the grounding device
in the power socket just provides grounding for the server, and then proper grounding
protection for cabinet and other internal devices should be provided. We recommend
you to use the cabinet specially designed by Inspur for the server. If so, the internal of
the cabinet should be already grounded. Please don’t change the ground joint in the
cabinet unless it is of absolute necessity.
Temperature: if installed in the cabinet, the operation and working temperature of
the server can’t be lower than 5℃ and higher than 35℃ .
Ventilation: the cabinet used by server cluster must provide enough wind current
for the front of the server to ventilate, and must ensure 4100Btu heat discharge per
hour. The cabinet selected by the cluster and ventilation condition must correspond
with requirements of the server.

4. Make the smooth side of the inner rail confront the side of cabinet, get the
holes on the inner rail and screws on cabinet corresponding with each other well, let the
inner rail cling to the cabinet closely, then push the inner rail in the direction (rear of
the machine) of red arrows shown in (picture 5), and clamp tightly the inner rail with
double-screw bolts.
▲ Special notice: when push the inner rail in the direction of red arrows, if
the inner rail can’t be clamped into the double-screw bolt, slightly loose the four
screws and then push the inner rail again. After the inner rail is clamped tightly,
screw down.

5. Repeat step 1~4, install the other inner rail in the corresponding position at the
other side of the cabinet.
9.4 Install Guide Rail into Cabinet
1. Make sure the installation location of the guide rail on the cabinet; firstly, let
the bearing stubs of the front frame pass through the fixed hole of the cabinet’s angle
rail (picture 6). Based on the depth of the cabinet, properly adjust the back frame and
fix the bearing stubs of the back frame to the angle rail at the back of the cabinet. (Notice:
the front and back frame must be guaranteed at the same level.)

2. Clamp the inner rail at both sides of the server into the outer rail groove of the
cabinet (the sliding bead of the outer rail must be moved to the front end of the outer
rail).
3. Refer to (picture 8), keep the server horizontal and push it steadily into the
cabinet. If it is blocked during the pushing, pull forward the bayonet lock at the front of
the inner rail, and at the same time push it into the cabinet.
