Using the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD

Use this information as an overview for using the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD.

The ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD provides software setup tools and installation tools that are designed for your server. The ServerGuide program detects the server model and hardware options that are installed and uses that information during setup to configure the hardware. The ServerGuide program simplifies operating-system installations by providing updated device drivers and, in some cases, installing them automatically. To download the CD, go to the IBM ServerGuide website and click IBM Service and Support Site.

The ServerGuide program has the following features:
  • An easy-to-use interface
  • Diskette-free setup, and configuration programs that are based on detected hardware
  • ServeRAID Manager program, which configures your ServeRAID adapter
  • Device drivers that are provided for your server model and detected hardware
  • Operating-system partition size and file-system type that are selectable during setup
Changes are made periodically to the IBM Web site. The actual procedure might vary slightly from what is described in this document.
