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

Re: Wake on Lan

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.

Module: x3200m2 type:4368 i1s server how many lan (ethernet) ports are available for usage

Number of all ports available: Six USB; Ethernet,two serial,parallel and Video.
One x8 high-speed PCI-E adapter slot offers investment protection by supporting high-performance adapters, such as Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand cards, none of which will run in older conventional PCI slots.
The x3200 M2 includes one integrated Broadcom 5722 Gigabit Ethernet controller for up to 10X higher maximum throughput than a 10/100 Ethernet controller. In addition, the 5722 supports IPMI-over-LAN.

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,

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


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,

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:
