RE: System i5 first boot



fixed

No - the HMC ports will always be configured and installed on a system
whether or not you had an HMC come with your system, you just won't use
them.  They can also be used for ASM which is something you can mess
with once you get your LAN console figured out.  =)

Best of luck.

Subject: RE: System i5 first boot

Stefan, thanks for detailing that out.  I did manage to view the IP
addresses based on your instructions and they were set to 192.168.2.147
and 192.168.3.147.  It appears as those are the IP addresses for the T1
and T2 Ethernet ports which I believe are used for HMC's which I did not
order.
The Quick Start Guide that I received stated that the Ethernet cable
should go in T5.  Note that going into control panel 30 only allowed me
to view the IP addresses of T1 and T2.  Does it sound like my system was
sent to be configured with an HMC?

Thanks,
Aaron Bartell

Is there a way for me to find what IP address it has assigned itself?
Through the random pushing of buttons on the control panel display I
found
it once, but that was a couple of boot attempts ago and I am trying to

figure out how to get back into there.

Well, the i5 do not assign any ipadresses by itself. If you are talking
about the hmc ports - then yes it is by default set up to try to get an
ipadress from an dhcp-server. Otherwise it will fallback to default
ipadress of 192.168.2.147 on port hmc 1 and 192.168.3.147 on port hmc 2,

You can check this by using function 30 on the operator panel. You need
to set the ipl type to manual to be able to get function 30.

Change ipl type to Manual.

Step to 30 using arrow buttons. Press Enter, Operator panel will show
30** Use arrow buttons to get function 3000. Press Enter.
Operator panel will show ipadress on port hmc 1.
Use arrow buttons to get function 3001. Press Enter.
Operator panel will show ipadress on port hmc 2.

Use arrow buttons to return to 30**. Press Enter to return to function
30.

Change ipl type to Normal.

Regards
