    Fujitsu Siemens Computers GmbH and present rack systems from different manufacturers. The PRIMERGY RX100 S3 server offers a high level of reliability and availability through highly developed hardware and software components. These include the ServerView server management software, Prefailure Detection and Analyzing (PDA) and Automatic Server Reconfiguration and Restart (ASR&R).
  • Page 6 Overview of the Documentation Introduction Additional components of the server documentation To the PRIMERGY RX100 S3 documentation set belong the following additional manuals: – “Quick Start Hardware - PRIMERGY RX100 S3” (poster) – “Quick Start Software - PRIMERGY ServerView Suite” (poster) –...
  • Page 7: Features

    ASR&R (Automatic Server Reconfiguration and Restart) restarts the system in the case of an error and automatically ”hides“ the defective system components. The PDA (Prefailure Detection and Analyzing) technology from Fujitsu Siemens Computers analyzes and monitors all components important for system reliability.
  • Page 8 Server Management Server management is implemented with the aid of the supplied ServerView software and PDA (Prefailure Detection and Analyzing) technology from Fujitsu Siemens Computers. PDA reports early the threat of a system error or overloading so that preventative measures can be taken.
  • Page 9: Notational Conventions

    Siemens Computers utilities supports fast BIOS Update. The optional RemoteView Remote Test and Diagnosis System allows the PRIMERGY RX100 S3 Server to be maintained from remote locations. A Remote Service Board (RSB) can be used in conjunction with RemoteView. Together they facilitate a remote diagnosis for system analysis, remote configu- ration, and remote restart should the operating system or hardware fail.
