HP 9000 server, OS windows 2000 configuration

Hello..
I am a programmer but just started as a validation specialist for computer systems. Part of it is hardware identification, verification and harware configuration of HP 9000 server, os windows 2000.
I do not know how to check (validate)the configuration of this server. Can somebody help me out?
also, can somebody tell me any link where I can find info about hardware identification in general for this server?

Thank you -- Gina

You might be talking about new Itanium based servers which can run HP-UX and Windows 2000 on it. The PA-RISC based HP9000 servers and workstations (rp and rx series, superdome, N, L, V, K etc) will support only HP-UX OS on it. In HP-UX, these commands will give you much information about the system:

# /opt/ignite/bin/prin_manifest (if Ignite loaded)

# ioscan -fn (hardware details)
# stm (hardware details) OR cstm OR xstm
# diskinfo (disk details)
# model (system model name)
# sam (information about system, network, disk, peripherals etc)

First, find out the exact model and version of OS the system running and post it here.

To add,

# uname -a (will tell you the OS details)

Thank you Shiju!
I will be in touch with you as soon as the server admn. gives me a response.
I am just straggling with kind of stuff that I do not have any idea at all:).

Thanks a lot-- Gina

Gina,

Type uname -a for model identification of your server.

Try the link below for hardware info on HP9000's.

Gina,

Apologies, on my previous mail I mentioned uname -a for the model.

It should have been :-

model (to fing out the model)
uname -a (to find out the os and license)

Re: HP 9000 server, OS windows 2000 configuration

Good morning Shiju,
I got the version of OS. Microsoft Windows 2000 server, version 5.0.2195 service pack 4 Build 2195.
But unfortunately, the hardware is not HP but Dell (just got the correct info), model poweredge 2500, type x86-based PC, so I have to do the hardware evaluation and hardware configuration for that hardware.
Maybe it goes beyond your scope :)..

Thanks again-- Gina

Again, it's rather easy now with Windoze mouse:

1) Go to control pannel -> system. Check processor type, memory info, OS info, network info.

2) On the "hardware" tab, select device manager and that will bring you all hardware devices configured on the system. Select one by one and get the info you need.
