Not Fully Functional on OS X with C4D Christoph is correct. DO NOT BUY FOR MAC While this device seems great, the company does not support this device for OS X AT ALL! They do have a driver.

Exellent 3D Connexion Space Explorer works very well with 3D cad. It feels natural to rotate, zoom and pan.

When changing the system configuration including:
Setting the system time and date Configuring the hard drives Specifying the boot device sequence Configuring the power management modes Setting up system passwords or making other changes to the security setup
When a configuration error is detected by the system and you are prompted by a Run Setup message to make changes to the BIOS settings.
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery located on the system board (XBAT1) may be defective. In this case, the system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Ask a qualified technician for assistance. The Setup Utility loads the configuration values in a battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM, which allows configuration data to be retained when power is turned off. The values take effect when the system is booted. POST uses these values to configure the hardware. If the values and the actual hardware do not agree, POST generates an error message. You must run the Setup Utility to change the BIOS settings from the default or current configuration.
Accessing the Setup Utility
Turn on the monitor and the server. If the server is already turned on, save your data and exit all open applications, then restart the server. During POST, press F10. If you fail to press F10 before POST is completed, you need to restart the server and repeat this step. The first page displayed is the Main menu. Use the left () and right () arrow keys to move between selections on the menu bar.

In the Main menu screen, select Boot Options. Select the Boot Summary Screen field. Press the plus (+) or minus (-) key to set the field to Enabled. Press F10 to save the changes you made and close the Setup Utility. Reboot the server. The diagnostic screen is displayed briefly at the end of POST.

Contents 43

If an optional POST code expansion board is installed in the server, during these instances, the server emits a buzzing sound followed by a series of audible beeps. An external ROM module can also issue audible errors, usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. If you get a blank screen on boot but hear beeps, count the beeps and refer to Table 18 for their corresponding meaning. If you miss the beep code:

1. 2. 3.

Turn off the server by pressing the power button for five seconds or more. Restart the server by pressing the power button. Listen for the signal again. The 8-bit error code is broken down to four 2-bit groups (Discard the most significant group if it is 00). Each group is made one-based (1 through 4) by adding 1. Short beeps are generated for the number in each group.
The routine derives the beep code from the test point error as follows:
Example: Test point 01Ah = = 1-2-3-3 beeps Table 27 lists the checkpoint codes written at the start of each test and the beep codes issued for terminal errors. Table 27 Checkpoint codes

NOS pre-installation procedure
Perform the two pre-NOS installation steps in this section before installing the NOS of your choice.
Configure the hardware aspect of the server. Update the server BIOS.

Hardware setup

Prepare the server following the instructions in the HP ProLiant DL180 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 on which they are installed. If you want to use additional hard disk drives to access existing data in the new server, HP

Contents 51

recommends that you install and configure any of these hard drives after completing the NOS installation.
If you want to recycle used hard drives, use a utility such as fdisk to erase all data and partitions from that particular hard drive.

2. 3. 4. 5.

Follow the procedures corresponding to the type of hard disk that is installed in the server. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press Enter to continue. Press F8 to accept the licensing agreement At the drives partitioning screen, select the target drive. If you want to use the entire drive to install the Windows NOS, press Enter. Otherwise, press C to create a drive partition. NOTE: Windows Server 2003 does not have the 2-GB limitation present in Windows NT 4.0. In this example, we will create a 10-GB partition.
a. Press C to create a partition. b. At the Create partition size prompt, type 10240, then press Enter. c.
Select unpartitioned space and press C again to create additional partitions. HP recommends that you create all the partitions needed for each hard drive present on your system.
Select the target drive to be used to install the Windows NOS, then press Enter. On the next screen, select Format the partition using the NTFS file system, then press Enter. The installer formats and copies files to the hard drive, after which the system reboots and launches the Windows NOS graphic interface. Be sure to remove the Windows NOS CD-ROM before rebooting. You can now customize your installation using the graphical interface.
NOTE: The network settings may need to be customized to your environment. Refer to the Windows NOS manual should you need further details on the networking settings.
After completing the customization phase, click Next to proceed with the installation. The installation status is indicated by the Install Network progress bar. This may take some time. After the installation is completed, the system automatically reboots.
At the Welcome to Windows dialog box, press Ctrl-Alt-Del, then log on as Administrator.

Contents 53

If you have successfully installed the Windows NOS, the Configure Your Server wizard launches. Close this window to postpone the customization of the server until all of the installation steps are completed. You can open the Configure Your Server wizard at any point by clicking Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Configure Your Server.
Section 3. Completing the installation
Phase 1 - Installing the chipset driver
Insert the Support CD in the servers optical media drive. By default, the Support CD automatically runs and displays the Welcome page. However, if this does not occur, double-click the Startup.htm file located on the root directory of the Support CD.

2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Click the HP ProLiant DL180 server drivers for chipset, Network, and Video link. Select the ServerEngines chipset driver option for Windows [NOS version] option. The File Download dialog box displays. Click Open to download the driver. The Security Warning dialog box displays. Click Yes. The installation menu for the selected driver is displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the ServerEngines chipset driver. After completing the installation, reboot the server.

Phase 2 - Installing the HP network driver
During the Windows NOS installation, the OS may not detect the embedded HP network interface card. The following procedure helps you install the LAN driver using the Support CD.
Insert the Support CD in the servers optical media drive. By default, the Support CD automatically runs and displays the Welcome page. Close this window. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Open the Other Devices tree, labeled with a yellow question mark (?), and double-click on the appropriate Ethernet Controller option to display its menu. Follow the installation wizard for additional configuration. Wait for the system to find the appropriate driver, and then click Next. Click Finish after the LAN driver has loaded. Close all open windows and restart the server to properly initialize the LAN adapter. After restarting Windows, configure the network settings for the LAN card to connect to your network. Verify connectivity.

a. In the Device Manager window, select the device (such as HP AHA-29160) that you want to

verify.

d. Right-click Properties, then click the Driver tab. e. Locate the Digital Signer.
If the driver of that device is digitally signed, the message MS Windows 2003 Publisher or Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher displays. If the driver of the device is not digitally signed, HP recommends that you check HPs website at www.hp.com to install the latest driver package.
Close the Device Manager, System Properties, and Control Panel windows. Click Start | Programs | Administrative Tools | Event Viewer to make sure that there are no errors in the log.
