IBM 31Y Security Camera User Manual

General information 5
The server supports up to two Pentium III microproces-
sors. The server comes with at least one processor
installed; you can install an additional processor to
enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
Large system memory
The memory bus in the server supports up to
2gigabytes (GB) of system memory. The memory con-
troller provides error correcting code (ECC) support for
up to four industry standard PC133, 3.3 V, 168-pin, 8-
byte, registered, synchronous-dynamic-random access
memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory modules
System-management capabilities
The Netfinity Manager software provided on the Serv-
erGuide CDs enables you to manage the functions of
the server locally and remotely. See “Netfinity Man-
ager” on page 75 for more information.
Integrated network environment support
The server comes with an Ethernet controller on the
system board. This Ethernet controller has an interface
for connecting to 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps networks. The
server automatically selects between 10BASE-T and
100BASE-TX environments. The controller provides
full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simulta-
neous transmission and reception of data on the Ether-
net local area network (LAN).
IBM ServerGuide CDs
The ServerGuide CDs included with IBM Netfinity serv-
ers provide programs to help you set up the server and
install the network operating system (NOS). The Serv-
erGuide program detects the hardware options that are
installed, and provides the correct configuration pro-
gram and device drivers. In addition, the ServerGuide
CDs include a variety of application programs for the
Reliability, availability, and serviceability
Three of the most important features in server design are
reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS). These fac-
tors help to ensure the integrity of the data stored on the
server; that the server is available when you want to use it;
and that should a failure occur, you can easily diagnose and
repair the failure with minimal inconvenience.
The following is an abbreviated list of the RAS features that
the server supports.
Menu-driven setup, system configuration, RAID config-
uration, and diagnostic programs
Power-on self-test (POST)
Error codes and messages
Upgradable BIOS and diagnostics
Automatic restart after a power failure
CRC checking on the SCSI buses
Error checking and correcting (ECC) memory
