WARNING: Metallic particulates can be especially harmful around electronic equipment. This type of contamination may enter the data center environment from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, raised floor tiles, worn air conditioning parts, heating ducts, rotor brushes in vacuum cleaners or printer component wear. Because metallic particulates conduct electricity, they have an increased potential for creating short circuits in electronic equipment. This problem is exaggerated by the increasingly dense circuitry of any electronic equipment. Over time, very fine whiskers of pure metal can form on electroplated zinc, cadmium, or tin surfaces. If these whiskers are disturbed, they may break off and become airborne, possibly causing failures or operational interruptions. For
wp0103gs.book Page 6 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
over 50 years, the electronics industry has been aware of the relatively rare, but possible, threat posed by metallic particulate contamination. During recent years, a growing concern has developed in computer rooms where these conductive contaminants are formed on the bottom of some raised floor tiles. Although this problem is relatively rare, it may be an issue within your computer room. Since metallic contamination can cause permanent or intermittent failures on your electronic equipment, Hewlett-Packard strongly recommends that your site be evaluated for metallic particulate contamination before installation of electronic equipment.
wp0103gs.book Page 7 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
Before connecting any cords or cables to your system, please read the Warning Notices in the front of this manual.

wp0103gs.book Page 15 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
configuring your system
Two tools are available to configure your system:
Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)
This section provides a brief introduction to these tools. For complete information, refer to System Configuration in the zx2000 Technical Reference Guide.
extensible firmware interface (efi)
The Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) is an interface that allows you to configure the Itanium Processor Family (IPF) firmware. When you turn on your system and it begins to start up, your system pauses at the boot option screen:
EFI Boot Manager ver x.xx [xx.xx] Please select a boot option [your OS] EFI Shell [Built-in] Boot option maintenance menu Security/Password Menu Use up and down arrows to change option(s). Use Enter to select an option
NOTE: You have seven seconds to change the boot option before the system boots to the default OS.
wp0103gs.book Page 16 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight an option, then press Enter.
EFI Shell [Built-in] is a command line interface that allows you to operate the EFI commands or create and run automated scripts. Boot Option Maintenance Menu allows you to select the
order of the devices from which you want the firmware to attempt to boot the OS. You can also configure the system to boot from a configuration file.
Security/Password Menu lets you add, change and delete
system administrator and user passwords.
You can also access the EFI remotely. 1. With the workstation turned off, connect a 9-pin to 9-pin serial cable to Serial Port A on the rear panel of the workstation, and to your remote device. 2. Configure the terminal emulation software with these settings:
Baud rate: 9600 Bits: 8 Parity: None Stop Bits: 1 (one) Flow Control: XON/XOFF
3. Using the terminal emulation software, connect to the workstation with a direct connection. NOTE: The default terminal emulation type is VT100+. This setting can be changed from the EFI Boot Options Maintenance Menu. 4. Turn on the workstation and follow the steps below to access the EFI.
wp0103gs.book Page 17 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
using the efi shell
To access the EFI shell: 1. When the EFI boot option screen displays, use the arrow keys to highlight EFI Shell, then press Enter. 2. A list of file systems (drives and partitions), and block devices on hard drives is displayed. For example:

3. The EFI shell first searches for an optional script file named startup.nsh. If this file is found, it is executed automatically. If the script does not automatically start an OS or other application, the shell then waits for commands to be entered at the command prompt.
wp0103gs.book Page 18 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
4. You can now enter commands. To run an individual command: a. Type the command at the shell prompt. For example, to clear the display on the monitor:
b. Press Enter to execute the command.
Some commands require additional arguments to further define their action. For example, to display information about the system memory, you must type the command name, plus the desired category of information to display:
fs0:\> info mem
When you enter individual commands at the command prompt, the shell performs variable substitution, then expands wild cards before the command is executed. To switch to a different file system, execute the following, where fsx is the selected file system, as listed on the screen (see step 2). For example:
You see this prompt:
You can also run EFI applications (files ending with.efi). To list applications in the current file system, run the ls command.
wp0103gs.book Page 19 Tuesday, June 8, 2004 3:08 PM
