Netraid-2M card configuration on rx5760 server

Hi,

I was trying to setup the netraid-2m card in a rx5670 with the following document :

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpn14733/lpn14733.pdf

Here are the steps given :

1. Power on the server and insert the HP Smart Setup DVD into the DVD drive.
If the server boots to the HP Smart Setup DVD main menu, skip to step 3.
If the server boots to the EFI Boot Manager menu, select Bootable DVD, if available,
and skip to step 3.
If the server boots to the EFI Boot Manager menu, and you do not see a Bootable DVD
option available, do the following to set the DVD as a bootable device and to launch the
HP Smart Setup DVD interface:

a. When the EFI Boot Manager menu appears, use the arrow keys to highlight the
entry EFI Shell [Built-in], then press the Enter key to select it.

b. The Device mapping table displays. Locate the fsx entry that contains the word
CDROM. This file system maps to the DVD drive. For example:
fs0: Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(2|0)/Ata(Primary,Master)/CDROM(Entry0)

c. Type fs0: (or use the entry you located above if it was not fs0) at the shell prompt,
then press the Enter key.
d. Type \efi\boot\bootia64 at the shell prompt, then press the Enter key.


2. From the EFI-Based Setup Utility main menu, select Configure I/O Cards and then
select NetRAID-2M. Follow the prompts to configure your NetRAID-2M.


However, when I reached the Configure I/O cards, I can't seem to select the NetRAID-2M option. Anyone know how can I go about from here?

Re: Netraid-2M card configuration on rx5760 server

i realised that from the manual, it says :

'EFI shell utilities specific to the NetRAID-2M are included in the HP Smart Setup DVD
under \efi\io_cards\netraid directory and may be executed from the EFI Shell command line.'

however, when i went to the directory \efi\io_cards, i can't seem to find the netraid directory.

does anyone has the 5.1 smart setup cd or other version that was not able to go into the \efi\io_cards\netraid directory too?

Hi,

You can try to run the optload -e 0 from the EFIshell to enter the Netraid Express Utility.

Hope this helps.
