For instructions on how to configure and manage the advanced SATA/SAS hardware RAID, refer to the
MegaRAID SAS Software User Guide on the documentation DVD that comes with your server. This
document also is available on the Lenovo Web site at:

Configuring the Ethernet controllers

The Ethernet controllers are integrated on the system board. They provide an interface for connecting to
a 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps network and provide full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables
simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the network.
You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the Ethernet controllers. However, you must install a device
driver to enable the operating system to recognize the controllers.
The ThinkServer EasyStartup program simplifies the process of configuring RAID and installing supported
operating systems and device drivers on your server. See "Using the ThinkServer EasyStartup program"
on page 69.
The device drivers for onboard Ethernet controllers also are available for download at:
http://www.lenovo.com/drivers

Updating the firmware

The firmware in the server is periodically updated and is available for download on the Lenovo Web site.
Go to http://www.lenovo.com/drivers and follow the instructions on the Web page to check for the latest
level of firmware, such as the BIOS updates and device drivers.
When you replace a device in the server, you might have to either update the server with the latest version of
the firmware that is stored in memory on the device or reflash the BIOS, the TMM firmware, and the FRU/SDR.

Using the Firmware Updater program

The Firmware Updater program enables you to maintain your system firmware up-to-date and helps you
avoid unnecessary outages.
To update your system firmware using the Firmware Updater program, do the following:
Note: Before distributing the firmware updates to a server, ensure that your server can restart successfully
without encountering hardware problems.
1. Go to http://www.lenovo.com/drivers and follow the instructions on the Web page to locate the
Firmware Updater program.
2. Download the ISO image for the Firmware Updater program and the TXT file that contains the
instructions.
3. Use any CD or DVD burning software to create a bootable disc with the ISO image.
4. Print the TXT file and follow the instructions to use the Firmware Updater program to update your
system firmware.

Using the Lenovo ThinkServer EasyManage program

The Lenovo ThinkServer EasyManage program enables enterprise users to remotely control and monitor
multiple Lenovo servers within a LAN. The program provides an interface to display all severs being
managed, which enables the administrator to conveniently search for, monitor, and manage servers.
