servers, you can run the SCSI RAID configuration program to create logical drives.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
When you start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, the program performs the
following tasks:
•
The ServerGuide program prompts you for your language, country, and keyboard
layout. (This information is stored and later passed to the operating-system
installation program.)
•
The ServerGuide program displays choices for running the configuration
programs. For example:
— The Express Configuration method runs the required programs for your
server, based on the hardware that is detected.
— The Custom Configuration method displays all programs that are available for
your server, and you decide which programs to run.
— The Replicated Configuration method provides the option of duplicating your
setup selections to other servers that are the same model.
•
If you select the Custom Configuration method, the following features are optional.
If you select the Express Configuration method, some or all of these features are
run, depending on the hardware that is detected:
— The Set Date and Time feature is provided so that you do not have to use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to access these settings.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
21
— The Clear Hard Disks feature is provided so you can delete all partitions on all
hard disk drives. If the server has a SCSI RAID adapter installed, you can
select to restore the configuration on the SCSI RAID adapter to the factory
default settings.
— The ServerGuide program checks the system BIOS code and microcode
(firmware) levels for supported options and then checks the CD for a newer
level. The CD content might be newer than the BIOS code and firmware level.
The ServerGuide program can perform a flash update of the BIOS code and
supported microcode (firmware) options without using diskettes.
— The SCSI RAID configuration program starts, leading you through the entire
configuration process.
— The Performance Optimizer program easily tunes your server for your
environment.
— The ServerGuide program creates a System Partition on the default drive.
•
The ServerGuide program displays a confirmation summary, so that you will know
when you have completed all the required tasks. Then, you are ready to install
your operating system.
Notes:
1. Plug and Play adapters are configured automatically. Non-Plug and Play adapters
might require switch settings, additional device drivers, and installation after the
operating system is installed. See the documentation that comes with the adapter.
2. Diagnostics for your server come in BIOS code or on a separate diagnostics CD.
System Partition
The ServerGuide program creates a 50 MB System Partition on the default drive. The
System Partition contains server-specific utility programs such as service processor
disk operating system (DOS) utilities, system diagnostics, flash BIOS updates, and
other programs. Programs in the System Partition vary by server model, and not all
server models run utility programs from the System Partition. To determine which
ones do, start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD and view the online
overview.
After setup is complete, you can access programs in the System Partition by restarting
the server and pressing Alt+F1 when the prompt is displayed. The System Partition
menu displays the programs that are available on your server model.

and for the operating system that you are installing. This section describes a typical
ServerGuide operating-system installation.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
1. After you have completed the setup process, the operating-system installation
program starts. (You will need your operating-system CD to complete the
installation.)
2. The ServerGuide program stores information about the server model, service
processor, hard disk drive controllers, and network adapters. Then, the program
checks the CD for newer device drivers. This information is stored and then
passed to the operating-system installation program.
22
IBM xSeries 205Type 8480:User’s Guide
3. With some operating-system installations, you can create an operating-systemreplication diskette for setting up additional servers. This diskette contains the
Internet protocol (IP) address, server name, and other selections.
4. The ServerGuide program presents operating-system partition options that are
based on your operating-system selection and the installed hard disk drives.
5. If you are installing the operating system from diskette, the ServerGuide program
lists the diskettes that you must create and the optional diskettes that you might
want to create. The diskettes that you can create are the device-driver diskettes
for the installed adapters or controllers.
6. The ServerGuide program prompts you to insert your operating-system CD and
restart the server. At this point, the installation program for the operating system
takes control to complete the installation.
Setting up or updating multiple servers
You can use the ServerGuide program to create diskettes that help you set up or
update multiple servers. You can modify information on the diskettes as you use them
to set up or update other servers.
Note: Availability and function can vary by server model and by the hardware that is
installed.
You can create a setup-replication diskette, which contains your hardware
configuration selections. Use this diskette to replicate selections to other servers that
are of the same model.
You can create an operating-system-replication diskette, which contains information
that you need to complete multiple installations. Not all operating systems support
operating-system-replication diskettes.
Installing your operating system without ServerGuide
If you have already configured the server hardware and you decide not to use the
ServerGuide program to install your operating system, complete the following steps to
download the latest operating-system installation instructions from the IBM Support
Web page:
1. Go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
2. Under Browse, click Servers.
3. From the Family drop-down list, select your server model.
4. If NOS installation instructions are available for your server model, OS
installation is in the list in the upper-left corner of the Web page. Click OS
installation and select the instructions for your operating system.
Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controller
The server comes with an integrated Ethernet controller. This controller provides an
interface for connecting to 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps networks and provides
full duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception
of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN). You do not need to set any jumpers
or configure the Ethernet controller for your operating system before you use the
Ethernet controller. However, you must install a device driver to enable your operating
system to address the Ethernet controller. The device drivers are provided on the
Device Drivers and IBM Enhanced Diagnostics CD.
When you connect your server to the network, the Ethernet controller automatically
detects the data-transfer rate (10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps) on the network and
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
23
then sets the controller to operate at the appropriate rate. In addition, if the Ethernet
ports that your server is connected to support auto-negotiation, the Gigabit Ethernet
controller will set the appropriate duplex state. That is, the Ethernet controller will
adjust to the network data rate, whether the data rate is standard Ethernet (10BASET), Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T), half duplex (HDX), or full duplex
(FDX). The controller supports half-duplex (HDX) and full-duplex (FDX) modes at both
speeds.
For information about configuring your Ethernet controller, see the Device Drivers and
IBM Enhanced Diagnostics CD that comes with your server. For updated information
about configuring your Ethernet controller, go to the IBM Support Web site at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/ and navigate to the area for your specific server type.
From this area you can download documentation, the most current device drivers for
your server, and software that supports advanced networking functions. After
downloading, run the downloaded program launch.exe.
You Ethernet controller supports optional modes, such as teaming, priority packets,
load balancing, fault tolerance, and virtual LANs, which provide higher performance,
security, and throughput for your server. These modes apply to the integrated
Ethernet controller and to the controllers on supported Ethernet adapters.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty
Z125-4753-06 8/2000
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The
warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to
Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The
term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades,
elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term “Machine” does not
include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed
subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties
apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement of
Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or
limited by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
The IBM Warranty for Machines: IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from
defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published
Specifications (“Specifications”). The warranty period for a Machine is a specified,
fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt is
the Date of Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded.
Extent of Warranty: The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a
Machine resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or
operating environment, improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product
for which IBM is not responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of
Machine or parts identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO
WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty: IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free
operation of a Machine. Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under
warranty, such as assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those
regarding Machine set-up and installation, will be provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES
OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service: To obtain warranty service for a Machine, contact IBM or your
reseller. If you do not register your Machine with IBM, you may be required to present
proof of purchase.
During the warranty period, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, provides without charge certain types of repair and exchange
service to keep Machines in, or restore them to, conformance with their Specifications.
32
IBM xSeries 205Type 8480:User’s Guide
IBM or your reseller will inform you of the available types of service for a Machine
based on its country of installation. At its discretion, IBM or your reseller will 1) either
repair or exchange the failing Machine and 2) provide the service either at your
location or a service center. IBM or your reseller will also manage and install selected
engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
Some parts of IBM Machines are designated as Customer Replaceable Units (called
“CRUs”), e.g., keyboards, memory, or hard disk drives. IBM ships CRUs to you for
replacement by you. You must return all defective CRUs to IBM within 30 days of your
receipt of the replacement CRU. You are responsible for downloading designated
Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code updates from an IBM Internet Web site or
from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides.
When warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or
your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours. You
represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement may not
be new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the
item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service status of the replaced
item. Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the removal of parts and their
return to IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service
status of the removed part.
Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.
You also agree to
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent
its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided:
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine's location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM's
possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the
transportation charges.
Neither IBM nor your reseller is responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary or
personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM or your reseller
for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its
return.
Limitation of Liability: Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on
IBM's part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each
such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages
from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other
contract or tort claim), except for any liability that cannot be waived or limited by
applicable laws, IBM is liable for no more than
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and
tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the charges (if recurring, 12
months' charges apply) for the Machine that is subject of the claim. For purposes
Appendix B. Warranty information
33
of this item, the term “Machine” includes Machine Code and Licensed Internal
Code.
This limit also applies to IBM's suppliers and your reseller. It is the maximum for
which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively responsible.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: 1)
THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE
UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR
RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES
OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR
LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR YOUR RESELLER IS
INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW
THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU.
Governing Law: Both you and IBM consent to the application of the laws of the
country in which you acquired the Machine to govern, interpret, and enforce all of your
and IBM’s rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in any manner to, the
