Question about Dell PowerEdge 4400 Server
Usually when I configure the nic/ip address on other dell servers at my company I usually get a startup screen with various control prompts. It's either a contrl/E or cntrl/D but in this case I only get a cntrl/a scsi config or cntrl/m - which gives me the config utility for rebuilding the disks. i don't get a cntrl/e or cntrl/d - why ?
These menus are for SCSI/SAS controllers. If your server doesnt have a SCSI/SAS controller installed, or if it is disabled then you would not receive these prompts.

Tips for a great answer:
First, identify the NIC you wish to change; use:
$ MC LANCP <ret>
> SHOW DEVICE
Next, use the menu driven utility "TCPIP$CONFIG", to set your desired IP address etc:
$ @TCPIP$CONFIG <ret>
Option 1 - core environment
Option 2 - Interfaces (then select your NIC or the IP Addr to change)
Option 2 - add/change a Primary address on *** (where *** is your NIC).
