Table B-2. Card Information

Field Instructions
Slot Number Enter the slot number in which the card is physically installed, or one not already used by another card.
Node Address Accept the default value (0). When the server boots, the driver software chooses the node address for the card, starting with 128, and will try different addresses until it finds a unique number. If you do not accept the default value of 0 and instead enter a number between 128 and 254 for the node address, th driver software starts at that number and will try different addresses until it finds a unique number. You might choose to do this in a large network where a number of servers usually boot at the same time. Choosing a node address does not guarantee that the card will be assigned that address; it merely states a starting point.
Interrupt Level Enter an interrupt level that matches the jumpered settings on the card.
I/O Address Select the value that matches the jumpered settings on the card.
