Question about IBM Netfinity 7100 8666 Server

1 Answer

Wake on Lan

I would like to power up my Server via Ethernet using a so called Magic Packet.

My Ethernet Card (IBM Netfinity Security Adapter) seems to support this feature because there is a 3-Pin connector on it.

But now the acutal Question: How about the Server Mainboard???

Hopefully somebody out there knows what I'm talking about ...

Thanks in advance
Tobias

    Tanks a lot for anwering,

    however my acutal question wasn't concerning the 'software solution' - how to wake up a machine that supports WOL - but if this Server (Netfinity 7100) supports it at all!

There is a nice tool - it works fine with me - called FUSION WOL. You need to get first the MAC address and then just "wake" any machine.

A PC trick ;D


You might have heard and searched about shutting down remote PC.But, have you ever wished to turn on your PC remotely and access your file from FTP server and shut it down when not needed? Well you can. Sounds crazy isn’t it?
With simple tweak, you can turn your PC on from LAN. This will be a lot help if you have FTP server enabled from your desktop and you may want to access it from internet occasionally. Turning your PC always on will not be good as it will consume lots of energy. Even more your PC will be much more venerable for uninvited access.
To prevent this remotely turning on your PC can be good alternative.
To turn your PC on, all you need is the MAC (Physical address) address of the PC that you are turning on and Wake up on LAN or Power management from PCI enabled in the BIOS in the PC you want to turn on Remotely.
To check if it is enabled or not, go to BIOS setting in your PC by restarting and pressing Delete key(may varry according to motherboard). Go to Power Management Options, search for Wake up on LAN or Power management from PCI or any similar terms and enable it.
If you don’t see any option to manage power for PCI adapters then it might be possible to do it in Windows mode.
To do this, boot your computer to windows, go to Device Manager. Under network adapter choose the Network card that will be used to connect to LAN, i.e. your ethernet card.
Right click on it and choose properties. Go to Advanced tab.
Now in Property box scroll down to Shutdown Wake up or any similar terms. Select it and Enable it.
You may require a reboot after this.
Now your PC is ready to be turned on from LAN. This will enable to manage power from PCI devices like Ethernet cards. What it actually does is, configures BIOS to turn the PCI Ethernet card to grab some power even if PC is Powered Off. If any computer from LAN sends some command to PCI card then will will power on your PC.
Now anyting left to do is to have a tool to turn your remote PC own from remote location. I often use this tool since its free and customizable. With this free tool you only need to enter IP address of your PC and it will automatically get the MAC address of it. If required you have password field to enter.
Pressing Turn On button will turn on the PC with specified MAC address or IP address.You can also check if the PC is on or off.

I really hope this helps you :)

Automatic on toshiba p755


Not sure what system you are talking about. If you are saying that your Toshiba is automatically powering on then you may have a feature called wake on LAN enabled. Press the key at power on to go into your setup menu, look for the wake on LAN (sometimes called magic packet) feature under power control and disable it.

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.

Missing support/installation cd


I had the same problem.
There is a cd that came with the server called "IBM RAID Support" that is a must have to reconfigure the hard drives.
It took me a week to find the ISO image.
I will upload the cd via FTP and send you the link.

Automatic power on


Hi

I do not know why you need the automatic power on for your server. Server should be on all the time 24/7 .
If it is a PC , then you should know that even though shutdown , they are still on (you can see a light) .
This means you can use magic bullet to wake it up (wake up on lan).
Read up on magic bullet.

Good luck,
David

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:
