Number of all ports available:

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
Hi , if your dont have any data, try to get the IBM Netfinity CD for 4000r which supporting the OS 2003. Usually IBM provide a cd on each NEtfinity server. Check on the IBM website for more details about your Server Compatibility on 2003 server.
then proceed to re-intalled the OS.
