Controller Installation
Step 6. Use of an Optional UPS
If the server is NOT connected to an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) and you
want to maintain communication with the controller during power failures,
connect the modem and external power supply ac cords to a UPS.
By connecting the modem and the external power suppply to a UPS, you have
ensured that even if building power should fail you will be able to communicate
with the controller and the server, and that full alerting and event logging
continues until the battery is drained or power is restored.
15
Remote Server Manager Hardware Installation Guide
Step 7. Power-On Sequence
Power up the server in this order:
1. The modem and external power supply
2. The RSM controller power
3. The managed server
This sequence is required to properly initialize the modem with a dialer string that
(among other things) initializes Auto Answer.
After you power up the server, observe the controller's LED through the server’s
vents in the rear of the unit. The LED should begin as red, change to orange, and
finally change to a steady green indicating normal operation.
If the LED is not green, or the server does not boot, refer to “Troubleshooting the
Controller” section.
16
Controller Installation
Step 8. Install the SCU files
Start the System Configuration Utility (SCU).
Once prompted for the config file (!DEC23F0), insert the configuration diskette
(labeled AK-Q8U3A-CA) that came with the kit and hit the Enter key. This file
also resides in the management workstation's RS_MGR directory.
Select the default BIOS address unless there is a conflict with other installed
EISA options such as a SCSI adapter or LAN card.
If “No BIOS Address” is selected, you will not be able to place the server in
HELD Mode or perform any remote diskette operations.
An IRQ is not required because the controller does not have a NOS driver
connection to the operating system.
17
Remote Server Manager Hardware Installation Guide
Step 9. Verify the Connection with the Management Station
Refer to the “Remote Server Management Station Software User’s Guide” to
configure the software for access to the remote server from a management station.

server during boot up.
RSM config file.
Add RSM config file, as explained
in step 8.
Password Reset/Configuration Files
The controller is shipped from the factory with the security features disabled.
Normally the security features on the controller are set from the management
station. The security modes and passwords, which are saved in the non-volatile
memory on the controller, are restricted to authorized personnel only.
Once the access control passwords have been set and locked, the controller cannot
be accessed without the proper passwords.
If the passwords have been lost, you can reset the controller to factory settings
and delete the compromised event, macro, and script files by doing the following:
Power down the server and remove whatever panels or covers you need to
access the EISA bus on which the controller has been installed.
Locate the controller.
Remove the power cable from the controller. (An XL server does not have a
power connector.)
20
Troubleshooting the Controller
Locate connector J10 on the controller. Move the jumper from pins 5 and 6
and place it over pins 9 and 10 as shown below.
Reconnect the power cable to power on the controller. On XL servers,
replace any panels or covers that you removed earlier and power on.
Before the OS is loaded, power back down.
Observe the LED on the controller. The LED should be a steady green.
Disconnect the power cable from the controller. (On XL servers, remove the
panels or covers as in step 1 above.)
Remove the jumper from pins 9 and 10. Place it back over pins 5 and 6.
Reconnect the power cable, replace any panels or covers that you removed
earlier, and return the server to normal service, being sure to follow the
power-on sequence shown in step 7 of Chapter 2.
Select no user or password in the preference Window. Refer to the Remote
Server Management Station Software User’s Guide to set the password.
You must also restore all the customized data in the flash file by downloading the
event, script, macro, and security files from the management station.
