NOS pre-installation procedure
Perform the two pre-NOS installation steps in this section before installing the NOS of your choice. 1. 2. Configure the hardware aspect of the server. Update the server BIOS.
Prepare the server following the instructions in the HP ProLiant DL140 Generation 3 Server Installation Sheet. It is recommended that you do not install any third party adapter until you verify that the HP equipment is functioning properly and you complete the NOS installation. Your ProLiant server comes with new hard disk drive(s) that do not need specific setup. However, if you install additional used hard disk drives in your new server: Note that most NOS installations remove all data from the hard disk they are installed on. If you wish to use your additional hard disk drives to access existing data in you new server, HP recommends that you install and configure this (these) hard disk drive(s) AFTER completing the NOS installation. If you wish to recycle used hard disk drives, use a utility such as fdisk to erase all data and partitions from that particular hard drive.
For detailed procedures, refer to Chapter 5 of the HP ProLiant DL140 Generation 3 Server Maintenance and Service Guide. HP recommends that you update the server BIOS with the latest system BIOS version to take advantage of the most recent compatibility fixes. You can download the latest HP ProLiant DL140 Generation 3 server BIOS at www.hp.com. NOTE: For ease of reading, the HP ProLiant DL140 Generation 3 Server Support CD will be simply referred to as the Support CD.

Server management overview
Server management on the HP ProLiant DL140 G3 provides the user with the status of various system sensors, and the ability to manage and control some of the system functionalities remotely. The features and details of these functionalities are covered in the Lights-Out 100 User Guide. The information in this chapter is geared towards helping the user configure and use some of the basic server management features of the HP ProLiant DL140 G3. While a web interface provides the user with many of the basic server management functionalities, a knowledgeable user well versed with IPMI 2.0 specification will have the ability to use some of the advanced functions and system controls, through command line instructions via the CLI and KCS interfaces.
There are three possible connections that will allow the user to access the server remotely. Dedicated NIC The 10/100 Mbps NIC port on the rear panel is dedicated for server management function. Sideband NIC This hardware option allows the user to connect a Gigabit NIC which can double as a server management connector and a Gigabit NIC port. COM port The serial port on the rear panel can be configured as a standard serial port or as a COM port for BMC functionality. It allows the user to communicate with the systems BMC server management controller.
Server management BIOS setup
The System BIOS configuration chapter on page 4 provides the user with information on how to configure the system BIOS to support the various remote management system interfaces. The default NIC connections should allow the user to access the simple web interface and the CLI command line interface via LAN. The default COM port settings should allow the user to use the advanced features and provide a standard control interface that some existing hardware use. The console redirection settings, in conjunction with matching COM port settings should provide the user with the flexibility of using the HP ProLiant DL140 G3 in various OS environments. The discussions here will be limited to a few standard configurations.
From the remote system open a DOS window and type in telnet <servers IP address>. Enter the login name and password. The Lights-Out 100 Management screen will be displayed.
Figure 26 CLI interface screen via a NIC port
To use the COM port for CLI interface access:
