Problem determination tips
Due to the variety of hardware and software combinations
that can be encountered, use the following information to
assist you in problem determination. If possible, have this
information available when requesting assistance from Ser-
vice Support and Engineering functions.
Machine type and model
Processor or hard disk upgrades
Failure symptom
Do diagnostics fail?
What, when, where, single, or multiple systems?
Is the failure repeatable?
Has this configuration ever worked?
If it has been working, what changes were made
prior to it failing?

Reference/Diagnostics version
Type and version level
Hardware configuration
Print (print screen) configuration currently in use

Note: To eliminate confusion, identical systems are consid-
ered identical only if they:
1. Are the exact machine type and models
2. Have the same BIOS level
3. Have the same adapters/attachments in the
same locations
4. Have the same address jumpers/termina-
5. Have the same software versions and levels
6. Have the same Reference/Diagnostics Diskette
7. Have the same configuration options set in the

Comparing the configuration and software set-up
between "working and non-working" systems will
often lead to problem resolution.
