Using the Setup utility

Use these instructions to start the Setup utility.

You can also access the Setup utility remotely through the CMM web interface. From the CMM web interface, select Launch Compute Node Console. For more information, see the "Flex System Chassis Management Module: User's Guide". All fields and options are described in the CMM web interface online help.

To start the Setup utility locally, complete the following steps.

  1. If the compute node is turned on, turn off the compute node (see Turning off the compute node).
  2. If necessary, connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse to the console breakout cable and connect the console breakout cable to the compute node.
  3. Turn on the compute node (see Turning on the compute node).
  4. When the prompt Press <F1> Setup is displayed, press F1. If you have set an administrator password, you must type the administrator password to access the full Setup utility menu. If you do not type the administrator password, a limited Setup utility menu is available.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen.

The following menu items are on the Setup utility main menu. Depending on the version of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), some menu items might differ slightly from these descriptions.
