NVRAM on DL740


NVRAM on DL740

Hi There,

The switch on the I/O Board that allows for clearing of the NVRAM, can this be done while the server running or should it be done when it off ? Do I need to set the switch to on and then switch the server on and shut it down and change the switch back to off to clear the NVRAM ?

Hello Jason,

your 2nd suggestion is correct.
Procedure as follows:
- Power off
- Set switch ON
- Power on
- Wait about 30 seconds, then power off
- Set switch OFF
- Power ON, NVRAM is now cleared

Sephen is correct
Where as we can use the smart start cd and do the same also. but in that remove the hdd before doing so. Bec in hdd we can clear the hdd information also.

I would stick with Stephen's procedure. We have used the procedure a number of times in our environment.

Good luck,
