I've two ibm netfinity 3500 servers, I'would like to take pentium III processor from one server to use it on the other server with dual processor option, I removed the coprocessor from the server to install the second processor, but it doesn't work. Could you explain me the procedure to use dual processor on my server please?

SOURCE: Running Non-ECC Ram in a IBM Netfinity 3500 M20

Dear NickB,

In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

SOURCE: Problem woth IBM netfinity 3000

You definitely should be able to boot from cd. I used to have a netfinity 3000 and regularly booted off cd. However, there are 2 possibilities here:
a. your cd-rom is faulty
b. your cd disc is seen not bootable
I would suggest checking whether you can boot from this cd disc on another machine-if so, I would try swappin cdrom in the netfinity.

Good luck,
Raf

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

The disk that comes with the machine is called the NOS in the manual. It is also known as ServerGuide 6.0.3 which will config your Netfinity up to Win2000 Server. I used ServerGuide 7.3.06 to install Windows 2003 Server. The latest version (IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD v7.4.17) is on the support IBM web site:

Video controller disabling


That model server comes with onboard video. If you wish to use a PCI video card then all you have to do is place it in the server and the BIOS will automatically disable the onboard. If it currently has a PCI video card in it, just remove the PCI card and you should get the onboard video again. Hope this helps.
