System Operation 2-15

OS Boot from EFI Shell

You can boot the OS from the EFI Boot Manager. You can also boot the OS by entering commands from the EFI Shell.

An example follows for booting the OS from the SCSI hard disk drive in a hardware configuration containing:

!IDE DVD-ROM(Master)

!SCSI HDD: OS boot disk

!External LAN card built into the Expansion PCI slot.

Note: Cards are available if they are supported by the application programs or OS.

1.Specify the file system. Change the current file system to the file system with the connected boot device by entering the device at the Shell prompt.

For the example in the following screen (see Figure 2-14),enterfs0: for the fs0 boot device.

Notes for OS Installation

See the following notes requiring attention when installing the OS:

!Adding a SCSI card to a free slot and connecting a disk to the SCSI card after the OS installation, might change the numbering of the disk and prevent an OS boot from that disk.

!PCI12 slot is set to not run Option ROM BIOS as default. Running Option ROM BIOS on PCI12 slot requires changing the settings of the slot with BIOS setup before booting the OS.

EFI Device Path

Each device installed in the system is managed with an “EFI Device Path.” The following information describes EFI device paths.

See the following examples and Table 2-2for device path formats for devices conforming to EDD3.0 specification:

Example: SCSI cards and disks installed on the PCI bus:

Acpi(PNP0A03, 1)/Pci(2|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part1,SigFF050000)

Example: DVD-ROMdevice connected to the IDE Secondary channel:

!If you need to change the contents for the DAT, replace the label with a new one. (Do not erase the label contents.) Be sure to remove the old label before attaching the new label.

!If you use a label other than the specified INDEX label, be sure the label size is correct, the label can be easily replaced, and the label doesn’t leave adhesive after removal.

SP Console

The service processor (SP) in the Express5800/1080Xd main chassis provides the interface for system management and RAS functions. The SP is on the service processor and clock (ISP-C)board.

The following sections describe:

!SP console connections

!Console operations

!Console status and login authentication

!Login and Main Menu.

SP Console Connections

The service processor supports two types of console connections (see Figure 3-1):

!serial (local console)

!LAN via TCP port 5001 (LAN console).

Both serial and LAN console connections provide the same operation. However, the LAN console requires an initial configuration which can only be done using the local console. See Table 3-1for console configuration settings.

Note: The most effective connection method between the Express5800/1000 Series and the Service Processor is by using a telnet utility. Multiple instances of the telnet utility can be running at once, providing multiple windows with which to monitor and control the system. These utilities also provide logging features, which can be very useful inback-trackingsystem settings and status reports. Be sure to set VT100 emulation mode.

Console Operations

You can use the consoles to:

!Operate the service processor using SP commands

!Redirect the operating system (BIOS) serial console (in main chassis)

!Display the Virtual SOP (Virtual System Operator Panel).

Console Status and Login Authentication

To use the consoles, you must first log into the service processor. When you log into the service processor, the iSP Main Menu appears.

From the iSP Main Menu, you can switch to one of the following functions:

!Virtual SOP – displays the system operating state for each partition with periodic updates.

!OS Console – redirects the serial input/output for the operating system (including BIOS).

!SP Command Console – allows you to monitor service processor output messages required for system operation and maintenance and to enter commands for the service processor. The SP Command Console lets you run commands required for system operation.

Table 3-2lists the login account and login password default values for entering the Main Menu and using menu functions.

Note: Only one connection to the OS Console per partition, up to five connections to the Virtual SOP in the entire system, and only one prime connection to the SP Command Console in the entire system can be made simultaneously. If LAN is used, additional SP Command Consoles can be attached using hubs, but they will be in monitor mode only, and commands can be entered only via the prime connection.
