Use the respective NOS software utility to:
Ensure the correct software drivers for the PCI boards are loaded
Verify correct operation
Slots 1, 2, 3, and 4 are non-hot plugs; slots 5, 6, 7, and 8 are hot plugs.
For optimal performance, add hot-plug boards to slots 7 and 8, which are
the fastest slots (66MHz and 64 bit).
Consider the boot priority prior to installing accessory boards.
You can configure the NetServer to boot from a PCI accessory board
instead of the onboard SCSI channels by putting the board in slot 1.
You can configure the NetServer to boot from a PCI-based DAC inserted
into a PCI slot. Use the Symbios Configuration Utility to select a different
PCI slot when scanning for boot devices. Refer to Chapter 10,
"Configuring the HP NetServer."
Slots 7 and 8 accept universal boards. Universal boards automatically
switch to accept power from +5.0 or +3.3 VDC.
Do not attempt to install or remove non-hot plug PCI boards with the
NetServer in any kind of sleep state, or a system crash or hang may occur.
See Chapter 2, "Controls, Ports, and Indicators," in the "Sleep States"
Some accessory board outputs may exceed U.S. National Electrical code
(NFPA 70) Class 2 or power source limits and must use appropriate
interconnecting cabling in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
(All Hewlett-Packard boards comply with Class 2.)
