    Hide details for Accessing Terminal Setup UtilityAccessing Terminal Setup Utility

    The 4694 BIOS Setup Utility (also known as Terminal Setup Utility) assigns resources to built-in and external devices and adapters. This function is accessed by pressing F2 on the PS/2 keyboard when prompted during the IPL. The resources for devices and adapters, which perform the basic input and output system operation, are listed below:
    • Direct memory access (DMA)
    • Input/Output (I/O) address
    • Interrupt Request (IRQ)
    • Memory
    The PCI adapters and the onboard PCI devices are plug-and-play, so the BIOS queries what resources they need (I/O, Memory, Interrupt Request - IRQ, DMARQ), and assigns these resources to the devices that are compatible with one another. The other onboard resources such as SIO (IEEE-485 and Device Channel), NVRAM, and SRAM, are also controlled by BIOS and kept compatible with the PCI adapters. If the ISA adapters are installed following this tips' instruction, there should be no concern of any resource conflict among the devices and adapters. All devices and adapters should work as expected.
      To access the 4694 POS System BIOS Setup Utility, perform the following:
        1. Connect a keyboard and VGA monitor to the terminal.
        2. Power on the 4694 terminal.
        3. Invoke the 4694 System Setup function for different models by performing the following:
        • 4694-004 -- Press Alt-Ctrl-S when the message "Initializing POS Device Channel..." appears on the screen.
        • Others -- Press F2 when SETUP is highlighted at the bottom of the screen
      BIOS level of the 4694 models must be as follows:
        • Models 104, (114) - version 7.07 or later
        • Models 144, (154) - version 5.14 or later
        • Models 244, 205, and 245, (254) - version 9.11 or later
        • Models 246, 206 - version E14.0 or later
        • Models 207, 247, 307, 347 - version G.06 or later

      To obtain the latest BIOS for 4694 models, please visit the RSS Web site at : The following adapters and devices may be listed in the BIOS Boot Sequence depending on different 4694 models and adapters detected:
          • ISA(non-PnP) LAN - This is used for the older non-PNP token ring cards. However, some other types of networking cards may fall into this category.
          • ISA(non-PnP) or Loop Card - It does not apply to all models, but is used for the consistency across all 4694 products that support ISA token or store loop card.
          • As a result of the PNP nature of these token ring cards, the following can be displayed in the boot list:
            • "System board 10/100 Ethernet" is displayed if "onboard Ethernet" is detected.
              • Note: If TCC function changes from token ring adapter to onboard Ethernet, but the PCI onboard Ethernet is not detected. The problem can be corrected by connecting the ethernet cable to the system ethernet port, followed by setting BIOS to default.
            • "IBM PCI Token-Ring Adapter RPL" is displayed if "PCI Token-Ring Adapter" is detected.
            • "IBM Turbo 16/4 T-R ISA RPL" is displayed if "Turbo16/4 ISA Adapter" is detected.
            • "IBM Auto 16/4 T-R ISA RPL" is displayed if "Auto 16/4 Token-Ring Adapter" is detected.

        Hide details for Advanced Power ManagementAdvanced Power Management

        The APM (Advanced Power Management) is an industrial power management standard. Machines in the 4694 family implement a subset of APM BIOS (V1.2). 4694 terminals equipped with APM hardware and enabled can be placed into a low power standby state by program control, pressing the power switch or loss of AC power. In this state the system, application and data are maintained. To return the terminal to its full power, previous state, the power switch can be pressed or an external interrupt from an I/O device like a key press on the keyboard must be done. In the case of AC power loss, a backup battery must be installed to maintain the system and AC power must be restored before the terminal can be returned to its full power state. To utilize APM the following must be done:
        • Install the APM hardware and optional backup battery to the machine to be an APM terminal.
        • Enable the APM interface in a terminal's BIOS setup.
        • Enable terminal storage retention from the controller.
        • Enable the external I/O IRQ or wake up event IRQ in a terminal's BIOS setup.
        • Action on an I/O devices by user to press a keyboard, move a mouse, or touch the 4820 touch screen.
        In BIOS SETUP screen, the appearance and text of the menu for selecting APM and IRQ may look different for the various models. The setup screens have a "menu bar" across the top of the screen or a list of items. The highlighted (selected) menu item determines the setup area and the subsequent setup screens displayed. One selection includes the APM Interface and another selection contains the external IRQ monitoring. The APM setup of various 4694 terminals is described below:
          • 4694-104, 114, 124, 144, and 154:
            • The selections for APM interface are enable/disable and the default is enable.
            • When APM interface is disabled, there is no power management.
            • There is no selection for external IRQ monitoring because their chipset is hard wired to IRQ for these machines.
          • 4694-2x4:
            • Set APM Interface to "Enable".
              • The Advanced System Setup must be selected first. The Disable setting disables all the hardware and software functions.
              • Set Power Savings Mode to "Suspend". This provides the greatest power savings.
              • Setting to "Standby" does not stop the processor.
              • Set External IRQ Monitoring to "Enable" if the user wants to restore the terminal to full power with any keystroke on the POS keyboard.
            • In the "ASIC Options" - the setting of the SIO Interrupt controls what IRQ the hardware will use for External IRQ Monitoring as well as the SIO interrupt level. External IRQ Monitoring can only be used if it is set to an interrupt level not used by another adapter (for example, Loop uses IRQ7).
              • Note: If using store loop, which uses IRQ7, the IRQ must be set to IRQ11 to allow External IRQ Monitoring to work properly.
            • The keyboard and the PS/2 mouse are used to wake up the system out of standby.
          • In 2x5 machines:
            • The 205 and 245 models support APM and are ACPI enabled.
            • APM is always enabled
            • The Wake Up Event replaces the external IRQ monitoring option. The Wake-Up Event can be selected as a sub-menu of the Power Menu.
            • Setup procedures are as below:
              • Select "Power" from BIOS Set Up.
              • Select "Wake Up Event".
              • Set "IRQ 7 (SIO): Primary, if SIO interrupt is set to IRQ 7 from "ASIC"
              • Set "IRQ 11(SIO): Primary if SIO interrupt is set to IRQ 11 from "ASIC"
            • Note: If using store loop, which uses IRQ7, the IRQ must be set to IRQ11 to allow External IRQ Monitoring to work properly.

          • In 2x6 machines:
            • APM interfaces are always enabled.

            To allow Keyboard touch to wake the box up:
            • Select "Power" from BIOS Set Up.
            • The selection WakeUp by IRQ 7(SIO) default is set to "disable". Set to enable This
            must match the setting under ASIC for SIO Interrupt.
            Note: If using store loop, which uses IRQ7, the IRQ must be set to IRQ11 to allow External IRQ Monitoring to work properly.
            • Set LAN Wake-up function to Disable.
            • Set "Wake-up on LAN"to Disable.
          • In 2x7, 3x7 machines:
            • APM interfaces are always enabled

            To allow Keyboard touch to wake the box up:
            • Select "Power" from BIOS Set Up.
            • The selection WakeUp by (SIO) IRQ default is set to "disable". Set to enable
            • Set "Wake-up on LAN" to "disable".
          For 4690 OS, in addition to requiring a 4694 POWER setup be enabled, the terminals are also required to be configured "enabled" for "Terminal Storage Retention". The user can accomplish this at the controller by the completing the following steps:
            • Press <ALT SYSREQ>.
            • Enter "c" to access the "Store Control Functions" screen.
            • Enter "1" for Terminal Functions.
            • Select "2" to Enable Terminal Storage Retention. Any number other than zero will have the terminals go into standby after the time interval for inactivity has been exceeded.

          Three scenarios of combining storage retention and APM functions are presented below using the 4694-2x6 terminals as an example:
          • Scenario I: The APM terminal has "Wake-up on by IRQ" set to "enabled", and Terminal Storage Retention set "enabled" with the time interval set to zero:
            • The terminal will go into the standby state when the power switch is pressed or when power is lost.
            • After power is back on or the power button is pressed, the terminal returns to its previous state.
                Note: Pressing keyboard entry or pressing power switch will wake up the terminal and return it to its previous transaction state.
                Note: For a terminal with a touch display where touch is the only input device
                • If RS485-attached 4820 is a touch display, the terminal will wake up on touch.
                • If USB-attached 4820 is the touch display, the terminal does not support Terminal Wake Up on touch.
            • Scenario II: The APM terminal has "Wake-up on by IRQ" set to "enabled", and Terminal Storage Retention set "enabled" with the time interval set to 10(ten minutes):
              • The terminal will go into the standby state when the power switch is pressed, when power is lost or when 10 minutes of inactivity has occurred.
              • After power is back on or the power button is pressed, the terminal returns to its previous state.
                  Note: Pressing keyboard entry or pressing power switch will wake up the terminal and return it to its previous transaction state.
                  Note: For a terminal with a touch display where touch is the only input device
                  • If RS485-attached 4820 is a touch display, the terminal will wake up on touch.
                  • If USB-attached 4820 is the touch display, the terminal does not support Terminal Wake Up on touch.
          • Scenario III: Same as scenario I except that the "Storage Retention" is set disabled:
              • Regardless of the BIOS setting for APM when the terminal looses power or the power button is pressed the terminal will completely shut down.
              • When the terminals power button is pressed again the terminal is IPLed.

          Hide details for PXE (Preboot Execution Environment) Booting TerminalsPXE (Preboot Execution Environment) Booting Terminals

          Until the 4694 2x7 and 3x7 models were introduced, the RPL method had been used to load terminal from a 4690 controller . These models, when used on a Token Ring LAN, will continue to use RPL. However, if installed on an Ethernet LAN, these models use PXE instead of RPL for loading terminals. PXE can only be used in a homogenous ethernet LAN installation, that is the TCC (terminal to controller communications) and CCC (controller to controller communications) need to be using Ethernet for their physical connection if previous to V3R1 CSD 0220.

          V2R4 TERMINAL BOOT SUPPORT:

          Families of 4694 models that support PXE booting and/or RPL booting on various LAN environments under V2R4 are shown in the following table:


          4694 Model LAN Type (TCC and CCC) are of the same type (homogeneous) Supports PXE for Booting Terminal Supports RPL for Booting Terminal
          207/247 and 307/347 Ethernet Y N
          207/247 and 307/347 Token Ring N Y
          ALL except 2x7 and 3x7 Ethernet or Token Ring N Y


          V3R1 and Later BOOT SUPPORT:

          Families of 4694 models that support PXE booting and/or RPL booting on various LAN environments under V3R1 or later are shown in the following table:


          4694 Model LAN Type (TCC and CCC) are of the same type (homogeneous) Supports PXE for Booting Terminal Supports RPL for Booting Terminal
          207/247 and 307/347 Ethernet Y N
          205/245 and 206/246 Ethernet Y Y
          205/245 and 206/246 207/247 and 307/347 Token Ring N Y


          In 4690 OS V3R1, the 4694 models that support PXE booting terminals under the existence of a "homogeneous" Ethernet LAN environment are listed below:
          • 4694-207, 4694-247, 4694-307, 4694-347
          • 4694-205, 4694-245, 4694-206, 4694-246

          NOTE: V3R1 CSD 0220 introduces support for mixed topology with TCC and CCC for PXE loading. This allows TR CCC with Ethernet TCC when terminals are loading using PXE.


          For detailed information on DHCP/PXE, please refer to "4690 PXE/DHCP Tips" or Chapter 5 of the 4690 OS Planning Guide.

            Note: There should be no operational differences between PXE and RPL. For differentiating the 4694 RIPL BIOS Messages in terms of PXE and RPL, the prefix of the BIOS message shows "PX" for "PXE" or "RP" for "RPL".

            Hide details for ISA Loop AdapterISA Loop Adapter

            Note: ISA loop adapters support all 4694 models except the 4694-2x7 and 4694-3x7 models.

            An ISA loop adapter in 004, 1x4, 2x4, 1x6, 2x5 and 2x6 systems are used for the support of the machine as a loop terminal or as a controller, controller/terminal supporting loop terminals. It is installed as described below:

            Configure the ISA Store Loop Adapter switch settings for a terminal or for the first or second adapters in a controller as shown in the following table:


                Loop Adapter
            Switch Settings

            • Circle either 1 or 2 on the ISA Store Loop/NVRAM Adapter label as appropriate (located on the adapter bracket).
            • Install the Loop Adapter in any available slot.
            • Power the system on and press F2 when the SETUP message appears at the bottom of the screen. This will take you into the Setup Utility. Modify the settings in this utility as described in the steps below:
              • Set the 2nd Boot Source field to:
                • Terminals:
                  • "LAN (RPL)" for 4694-1x4 and 4694-2x4 terminals
                  • "ISA (non-PnP) LAN or Loop Card" for 4694-2x5, 4694-1x6, and 4694-2x6 terminals
                • Controllers:
                  • Drive C
              • Set the RPL Boot Protocol field to LAN Adapter.
                If the 4694 is used as a controller with two loop cards installed:
                • Set the NVRAM start address to DE000
                • Set the SRAM start address to DA000
                  Otherwise:
                • Set the NVRAM start address to DD000
                • Set the SRAM start address to DC000
            • Save the settings.
              Notes:
              • In general, the POST/BIOS gives control to the loop card over any other RPL device (Token Ring or Ethernet adapters).
              • If a 4694 POST Error 6230 occurs at a 4694 terminal after the Load Terminal Storage controller command is issued to load that terminal, the problem should be resolved by changing the 4694 I/O Device Channel configuration from IRQ-7 to IRQ-11 using the 4694 terminal Setup.
              • If the loop adapter is installed on a 4694-1x4, 4694-2x4, or 4694-2x5 to be used as a terminal on which the optional dump switch feature is also installed, the feature dump switch should not be used to dump the terminal. Instead, use the loop card dump switch to dump the terminal. Using the feature dump switch with loop installed can hang the terminal. The exposure involved in fixing this problem was deemed too risky for now for such an unlikely customer setup.

            Attention: This adapter is supported on 4694-244, and 2x5 machines only. The ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is supported on 4694-244, and 2x5 machines when these machines are set up as either a controller or controller/terminal.

            The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter requires 4690 OS maintenance level CD 9740 or higher to function in a 4694-244, and 2x5 controller or controller/terminal. For an ARTIC186 8-port Adapter to function in a 4694-244, and 2x5 controller or controller/terminal, the following
            levels of support code must be installed on the 4694-244, and 2x5 machine:
              • PhoenixBIOS, version 4.05 (for 4694-244) and 4.00 (for 4694-2x5) or higher.
              • IBM POS Device Channel Subsystem, version 9.07 or higher

            The ISA ARTIC Model 1 Multiport Adapter supports asynchronous, bisynchronous and SDLC protocols for communications when the adapter is installed in an IBM 4694-244, and 2x5 controller or controller/terminal. The ISA ARTIC Model 1 Multiport Adapter supports ASYNC protocol on all eight ports. BISYNC and SDLC protocols can only be run on port 0 and port 1.

            Note: Performance and throughput capabilities for the IBM ARTIC Model 1 Multiport Adapter are described in the 4690 ARTIC informational APAR II07771.

            To install the ISA ARTIC Model 1 Real-time Interface Co-Processor Multiport adapter, perform the following steps.
              • Copy the file ADXHSX2L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file ICAAIM.COM. Both file names (ADXHSX2L.286 and ICAAIM.COM) must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory when set up a 4694-244, and 2x5 as a controller or controller/terminal.
              • Copy the file ADXHSZ3L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file RICCSSZ.EXE. Both file names must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory when setting up a 4694-244, 205, and 245 as a controller or controller/terminal.
              • Set Address Switch 1 to physical card 0.
              • Verify that the jumper on JP1 (PROM Jumper) is set correctly.
              • Set the Interrupt-Acknowledge level (JP15) and the Interrupt-Request level (JRA, JRB, JRC, L1, L2, and L4) jumpers for interrupt level 11.
              • Verify that the jumpers on JRA, JRB, and JRC (for M1 and M2) are set for the memory on your ARTIC adapter.
                • Note:The ARTIC adapter must have at least 512 KB of memory.
              • Place jumpers on JRA, JRB, and JRC so that BW is set for an 8-bit bus.
              • Place jumpers on JRA, JRB, and JRC so that ED is set for a two-edge expansion slot.
              • Verify the jumpers on JRA, JRB, and JRC so that BN is set in the factory setting of Memory Bank 0 only.
              • Place a jumper on JP12 for a two-edge slot.
              • Place jumpers on JP8 and JP9 for remote clock from the interface board. This ensures that the source for the communications clock is remote from the EIA electrical interface board.
              • Place jumpers on JP2 and JP3 for inbound clock.
              • If ordered, install any feature cards on your ARTIC adapter.
              • Set all power switches to off.
              • Unplug the power cords from the wall outlets.
              • Install the ARTIC adapter in an ISA card slot in your 4694-244, and 2x5. Refer to the documentation provided with your system for installing options (adapters).
              • Attach the 10 foot (3m) external cable (FC #6246) to the external connector on the rear of the ARTIC adapter.
              • Attach the I/O device cables (built or acquired) to the 25-pin connectors on FC #6246 (attached devices must match your configuration plan).
              • Reconnect all cables previously removed from the system unit.
              • Plug all power cords into electrical outlets.
              • Run the Real-time Interface Co-Processor Multiport diagnostics to verify your setup and to print, for the record, the options configuration.
                • Note:For best results, perform ARTIC diagnostics with no other adapters installed in the system. This ensures that any possible problems detected are specific to the ARTIC adapter only.
              • Activate the new controller configuration and test the attached devices that are using the ARTIC adapters.
            For more information, refer to the "Hardware Installation - Real-time Interface Co-Processor multiport" topic in the Guide to Operations Real-time Interface Co-Processor provided with the IBM Real-time Interface Co-Processor Multiport adapter.

            Hide details for IBM ISA ARTIC186 8-port AdapterIBM ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter

            Attention: This adapter is supported on a 4694-244, 1x6, and 2x5 machines only when these machines are set up as a controller or controller/terminal. It is not supported in 4694-2x6 due to hardware restrictions. The supported adapters' P/N are 87H3320 and 87H3330.

            The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter requires 4690 OS maintenance level CD 9740 or higher to function in a 4694-244, and 2x5 controller or controller/terminal. For an ARTIC186 8-port Adapter to function in a 4694-244, 1x6, and 2x5 controller or controller/terminal, the
            following levels of support code must be installed on the 4694-244, 1x6, and 2x5 machine:
            • PhoenixBIOS, version 4.05 or higher
            • IBM POS Device Channel Subsystem, version 9.07 or higher

            There is no diskette shipped with the ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter. If hardware diagnostics need to be run to verify functionality of the ARTIC186 hardware, these diagnostic programs can be obtained through the Internet. The IBM ARTIC Internet address is at the Web site:
            The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter supports only ASYNC and SDLC protocols for communications when installed in an IBM 4694-244, 1x6, and 2x5. BISYNC communications protocol is not supported. The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter supports ASYNC protocol on all eight ports. SDLC protocol can only be run on port 0 and port 1.

            Note: The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is a functional replacement for the IBM ISA ARTIC Model 1 Multiport Adapter. This means that performance and throughput capabilities of the ISA
            ARTIC186 are the same as those for the ISA ARTIC Model 1 Multiport. See 4690 ARTIC informational APAR II07771 for specific limits.

            To install the IBM ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter, perform the following
            steps.
            • Copy the file ADXHSX2L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file ICAAIM.COM. Both file names (ADXHSX2L.286 and ICAAIM.COM) must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory for a 4694-244, 205, 106, 146 and 245 as a controller or controller/terminal.
            • Copy the file ADXHSZ3L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file RICCSSZ.EXE. Both file names (ADXHSZ3L.286 and RICCSSZ.EXE) must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory for a 4694-244, 205, 106, 146 and 245 as a controller or controller/terminal.
            • Set the Interrupt Level Switches (L1, L2, L4) for interrupt level 11. Set these three switches as follows: L1 = OFF (open), L2 = ON, L4 = OFF (open).
            • Set the Card I/O Base Address Switches (C1, C2, C4, C8) to indicate either physical card 0 or physical card 1, (that is, first or second 8-port adapter). If this ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is the first multiport ARTIC adapter installed, then all four of the Base Address switches need to be set ON. If this ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is the second multiport ARTIC adapter installed, then Base Address switch C1 = OFF (open), with switches C2, C4 and C8 set to ON.
            • Set the Edge Connector Switch (ED) for two-edge connector expansion slot. Set the switch ED to ON.
            • Set the Bus Width Switch (BW) for 8-bit bus. Set the switch BW to ON.
            • Verify that the jumpers on JP1 and JP2 are both set to the RX position. Jumpers JP1 and JP2 are used to set the receive clocking mode for ports 0 and 1 when SDLC is used on these ports. SDLC requires that the clock input is received from an external source, (for example, a modem or other DCE).
            • Verify that the jumpers on JP3 and JP4 are both set to the IN position. Jumpers JP3 and JP4 are used to set the transmit clocking mode for ports 0 and 1 when SDLC is used on these ports. SDLC requires that transmit clock input is transmitted from an external source, (for example, a modem or other DCE).
            • Set the Port Selection jumpers for each of the eight ports. The ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter has a set of jumpers used to select the adapter configuration on a per port basis for each of the eight ports available. There is a 2x5 shunt jumper used to select either an RS232 or RS485 (RS422) electrical interface type for each port. RS422 is a subset of RS485.
              • Note: Be aware of the pin groupings for each of the eight ports are not in sequential order by port number on the card. Holding the ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter so the cable connector is on the right end of the card, the pin groupings for each port are numbered as follows from left to right across the card: port 0, port 7, port 5, port 4, port 6, port 3, port 2 and port 1.
            • The 2x5 shunt jumper for each port's pin grouping is positioned as follows to configure each port:
                • Place the 2x5 shunt jumper on the left-most 2 rows of pins to configure the port for RS485 (RS422).
                • Place the 2x5 shunt jumper on the right-most 2 rows of pins to configure the port for RS232.
                • There is also a diagram labeled on the card that shows how to place the 2x5 shunt jumper for either RS232 or RS485 (RS422) for each of the eight ports.
                  • Note:Do not install or remove a 2x5 shunt jumper to change a port's configuration while the ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is installed in a machine that is powered on. Power off the machine before changing the position of any of the 2x5 shunt jumpers for port 0 through port 7.
            • If SDLC communications are used on port 0 or port 1 of the ISA ARTIC186 8-port Adapter, these ports need to be jumpered for the RS232 interface (as described in the previous step). The SDLC protocol will only run on an RS232 port; only ports 0 and 1 can be used for SDLC communications.
            • Unplug the PC system's power cords from the wall outlets.
            • Install the ISA ARTIC186 adapter in an ISA card slot in 4694-244, 1x6, and 2x5 machines.
              • Note: Refer to the documentation provided with your system for installation options adapters.

            Attention: This adapter is supported on 4694-244, 2x5, and 2x6 machines only. ARTIC186 8-port Adapters are supported in 4694-244, 2x5, or 2x6 machines when these machines are set up as a controller or controller/terminal. The supported adapters' P/N are 87H3674, 87H3675.

            The PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter requires 4690 OS maintenance level CD 9830 or higher to function in a 4694-244, 2x5, or 2x6 controller or controller/terminal. For an ARTIC186 8-port Adapter to function in a 4694-244, 2x5, or 2x6 controller or controller/terminal, the following levels of support code must be installed on a 4694-244, 2x5, or 2x6 machine:
              PhoenixBIOS, version 4.05 or higher.
              IBM POS Device Channel Subsystem, version 9.07 or higher

            There is no diskette shipped with the PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter. If hardware diagnostics need to be run to verify functionality of the ARTIC186 hardware, these diagnostic programs can be obtained through the Internet. The IBM ARTIC Internet Web site is:

            The PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter supports only ASYNC and SDLC protocols for communications when installed in IBM 4694-244, 2x5, and 2x6 machines . The BISYNC communications protocol is not supported. The PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter supports ASYNC protocol on all eight ports. SDLC protocol can only be run on port 0 and port 1.
              Note: Performance and throughput capabilities of the PCI ARTIC186 are the same as for the ISA ARTIC186. See 4690 ARTIC informational APAR II07771 for specific limits.
                To install the IBM PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter, perform the following steps:
                • Copy the file ADXHSX2L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file ICAAIM.COM. Both file names (ADXHSX2L.286 and ICAAIM.COM) must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory for a 4694-244, 2x5, and 2x6 as a controller or controller/terminal.
                • Copy the file ADXHSZ3L.286 in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory to file RICCSSZ.EXE. Both file names (ADXHSZ3L.286 and RICCSSZ.EXE) must exist in the ADX_SPGM subdirectory for a 4694-244, 2x5, or 2x6 as a controller or controller/terminal.
                • Verify that the jumpers on JP2 and JP3 are both set to the RX position. Jumpers JP2 and JP3 are used to set the receive clocking mode for ports 0 and 1 when SDLC is used on these ports. SDLC requires receive clock input from an external source, (for example, a modem or other DCE).
                • Verify that the jumpers on JP4 and JP13 are both set to the IN position. Jumpers JP4 and JP13 are used to set the transmit clocking mode for ports 0 and 1 when SDLC is used on these ports. SDLC requires transmit clock input from an external source, (for example, a modem or other DCE).
                • Set the Port Selection jumpers for each of the eight ports. The PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter has a set of jumpers used to select the adapter configuration on a per port basis for each of the eight ports available. There is a 2x5 shunt jumper used to select either an RS232 or RS485 (RS422) electrical interface type for each port. RS422 is a subset of RS485. The pin groupings for each of the eight ports are in sequential order by port on the card. Holding the PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter so the cable connector is on the left end of the card, the pin groupings for each port are numbered from left to right across the card: port 0, port 1, port 2, port 3, port 4, port 5, port 6 and port 7. The 2x5 shunt jumper for each port's pin grouping is positioned as follows to configure each port:
                    • Place the 2x5 shunt jumper on the left-most 2 rows of pins to configure the port for RS485 (RS422).
                    • Place the 2x5 shunt jumper on the right-most 2 rows of pins to configure the port for RS232.
                    • Do this for all eight ports. The pin groupings for each port are labeled on the card itself.
                      • Note: Do not install or remove a 2x5 shunt jumper to change a port's configuration while the PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter is installed in a machine that is powered on. Power off the machine before changing the position of any of the 2x5 shunt jumpers for port 0 through port 7.
                • If SDLC communications will be used on port 0 and/or port 1 of the PCI ARTIC186 8-port Adapter, these ports need to be jumpered for RS232 interface (as described in the previous step). SDLC protocol will only run on an RS232 port; only ports 0 and 1 can be used for SDLC communications.
                • The setting of the JP1 jumper on the PCI ARTIC186 is very important. The JP1 jumper must be set to the "Window below 1 MB" position. Refer to the page titled "Load Region Jumper" in the IBM ARTIC186 8-port PCI Adapter Guide to Operations to identify how to set the JP1 jumper.
                • Unplug the PC system's power cords from the wall outlets.
                • Install the PCI ARTIC186 adapter in a PCI card slot in your 4694-244, 2x5, and 2x6. Refer to the documentation provided with your system for installation options (adapters).
                • Attach the 10 foot (3m) external cable (FC #6246) to the external connector on the rear of the PCI ARTIC186 8-port adapter.
                • Attach the I/O device cables (built or acquired) to the 25-pin connectors on FC #6246 (attached devices must match your configuration plan).
                • Plug all power cords back into electrical outlets.
                • Run the Real-time Interface Co-Processor Multiport diagnostics to verify your setup and print a record of the configuration options.
                  • Note: For best results, perform ARTIC diagnostics with no other adapters installed in the system. This ensures that any possible problems detected are specific to the ARTIC adapter only.
                • Activate the new 4690 controller configuration, IPL the 4690 system and test the devices attached to the PCI ARTIC186 8-port adapter.

                Attention: This adapter is supported on 244, 1x6, 2x5, and 2x6 machines only.

                Refer to the Multiprotocol Adapter for ISA User's Guide during installation. To install the Multiprotocol Adapter for ISA installation, perform the following steps:
                • Configure the MPCA as the first or the second adapter as appropriate.
                • Circle the 1 for the first MPCA, or the 2 for the second MPCA on the adapter label (located on the adapter bracket).
                  • Note: In the configuration for 4690, BSC 2 is defined for a BSC attachment to the first MPCA. BSC 1 is defined for a BSC attachment to the second MPCA.
                • Install the MPCA in any available slot.
                • Disable appropriate integral COM ports.
                • Select at power on: Setup
                • Select Integrated Peripherals
                • Select COM Port to disable
                  • Note: With each MPCA, one interrupt will be used and will not be available for a COM port.
                • The first MPCA will require the use of IRQ4 and blocks the use of COM Port 1.
                • The second MPCA will require the use of IRQ3 and blocks the use of Serial Port B. An MPCA can be installed and jumpered as a second MPCA, without there being a first MPCA installed.
                  • Note: The MPCA adapter is distinguished from the ASCA by its part number (73G2776) and the lack of two additional sets of jumpers (P6 and P7). ASCA has been withdrawn from the market.

                  Jumper Settings

                  The following jumper settings should be used.
                  • SDLC1/SERIAL1 CARD1 IRQ4 --> P1(1-2) P2(2-3) P3(2-3)
                  • SDLC2/SERIAL2 CARD2 IRQ3 --> P1(2-3) P2(2-3) P3(2-3)

                  Note: An MPCA can only be used by asynchronous communications applications, such as Remote Operator or Credit Authorization if an MPCA adapter is used for asynchronous communications only (not for SDLC communications), then the MPCA cannot be used for attachment of auxiliary consoles or printers.

                Attention: This adapter is supported on 4694-244, 1x6, 2x5, 2x6, 2x7, and 3x7 machines only. The supported PCI MPCA adapters are P/N 12J2981, 12J2983, and 19K4186.

                The PCI Multiprotocol Adapter requires 4690 OS maintenance level 9820 or higher for SDLC support, and level 9840 or higher for ASYNC support. Refer to the PCI Multiprotocol Adapter User's Guide provided with the adapter for more information.

                To use the PCI Multiprotocol Adapter, install the adapter in any available PCI slot. The PCI adapter does not require that one of the integral COM ports (as was the case with each ISA MPCA) be disabled.

                The PCI adapters are configured positionally if no ISA adapters are present (that is, correspond to whatever slot they are installed in.) This needs to be considered when installing a second PCI adapter in a system where one ISA adapter has already been installed and configured. PCI adapters take whatever position(s) the ISA adapter(s) leave if PCI and ISA adapters are mixed on a system.

                Using a PCI MPCA in ASYNC mode is accomplished through the 4690 host communication configuration screens for an ASYNC line. Change the defaults to the following configuration for the MPCA PCI adapter:
                • Adapter: enter 4 or 5 (4=SERIAL 4, 5=SERIAL 5)
                • IBM V.32 Adapter: enter 1 (1=not installed)
                • The speeds of 1800 and 28800 BAUD are not supported on the PCI adapters. If 1800 BAUD is selected for the PCI MPCA, the actual speed will be 2000 BAUD.
                For all other ASYNC configuration parameters, use the default values as shown by the worksheets in the IBM 4690 OS Version 2: Planning, Installation, and Configuration Guide, or change the default values as require to meet specific configuration needs.

                This section describes the configuration options for all the 4694 native IBM Ethernet Adapter.

                Using native IBM Ethernet on all 4694 models

                To use the native IBM Ethernet, the following settings must be changed using the 4694 BIOS Setup Utility. To start this utility, power on the machine and press F2 when prompted during the start up sequence. After the 4694 Setup Utility has started, do the following:
                • Set the 2nd Boot Source field to:
                  • Terminal:
                    • "LAN (RPL)" for 4694-1x4, 4694-2x4
                    • "System board 10/100 Ethernet" for models 4694-2x5, 2x6, 2x7, and 3x7
                  • Controller:
                    • Drive C
                • Set the RPL Boot Protocol field to:
                  • "IBM RPL". (Except for 4694-2x7 and 3x7 models)
                  • "PXE" for models 4694-2x7 and 3x7
                • Save the settings: Press ESC until you can Save and Exit the Boot Options menu. Press Enter to save and exit the menu.

                Note: For 4694-2x4 machines, make the following changes to the Advanced Peripheral option on the 4694 Setup Utility: LAN I/O address = 300, LAN interrupt = 10

                Note: With the newer 4694 models, 205/245/206/246/207/247/307/347 the Ethernet becomes a PCI device with the Interrupt moving from Int (IRQ) 10 to Int (IRQ) 9.

                Note: 4694-xx7 models with DP83815 chip from National Semiconductor.

                Due to hardware problems on DP83815 chip from National Semiconductor, terminals that use this chip and are connected to a Fast Ethernet LAN (100M) with cable lengths less than 35 meters could experience one or more of the following symptoms:  

                       - Slow or hung terminals when loading the bootstrap,OS, and Application (W008 message).
                       - Linkage problems on controller to controller communication.
                       - SNA Host communication has connection problems.
                       - LAN performance problems due to CRC errors and delays.
                 
                This problem has been experienced by many products using the DP83815 chip in 100M full or half-duplex.

                This is a National Semiconductor limitation and it will not be fixed by IBM-RSS.

                  If you encounter problems with the instructions when running LANAID, repeat the procedures after the instructions are in running Setup. When installing the Token-Ring adapter, you may need to run the ADRCLR94.EXE program to clear CMOS. The following setup procedures apply to all 4694 models.

                  Install the Token-Ring Adapter in any available slot.

                  Running LANAID
                  • Boot your terminal using the disk labeled "Disk 1: LANAID 2.21". This disk is shipped with the Token Ring adapter. If this disk cannot be located, or the latest version of the LANAID program is needed, it can be obtained from the Internet Web site at:
                  • Press any key at the message "Hit any key to continue with LANAIDC from diskette or remove diskette and reboot system normally...".
                  • You will see a prompt similar to "LANAIDC >".
                  • At the prompt, type /FAST=AUTO16. If you have done this correctly, you will see a display of Token-Ring adapter settings. (If you see an error message, correct the problem and retype the previous command.)
                  • At the prompt, type /rom=d2000 /ram=d4000 /ramsize=16 /config=legacy /io=a20 /int=11.
                  • If you have done this correctly, you will see a display of Token-Ring adapter settings. (If you see an error message, correct the problem and retype the previous command.)
                  • At the prompt, type /busw=8 /ripl=y /rs=X, where X = 4 or 16, depending on your LAN data rate (4 Mbps or 16 Mbps). If you have done this correctly, you will see a display of Token-Ring adapter settings. (If you see an error message, correct the problem and retype the previous command.) The display should look similar to the following:
                    • Adapter mode: Auto16 Compatible
                    • Configuration: LEGACY
                    • IO Address: A20-A23
                    • Interrupt: 11
                    • RAM Address: D4000-D7FFF
                    • ROM Address: D2000-D3FFF
                    • Remote IPL: Enabled
                    • Token Ring Data Rate: 4 or 16
                    • Auto-Sense data rate: Disabled
                    • Adapter bus width: 8
                  • Proceed with the instructions in Running Setup.

                  Running Setup

                  To run the Setup procedures:
                  • Power the system on and press F2 when the SETUP message appears at the bottom of the screen. This will take you into the Setup Utility.
                  • Set the "2nd Boot Source" field to:
                    • IBM Turbo 16/4 T-R ISA RPL for terminals
                    • DRIVE C for controllers
                  • Set the RPL Boot Protocol field to "LAN Adapter".
                  • Set NVRAM Start Address to DD000.

                  The Adapter setup may require the following diskettes:
                  • PCI Token-Ring Adapter LANAID and Diagnostics version 2.40a.
                  • ADRCLR94.EXE: clear terminal CMOS. On most terminals the user can clear CMOS by pressing the dump button when the terminal is displaying U005. On those terminals without a dump button you will need this diskette.
                  • PCIFLSH1.EXE: set PCI Token Ring flash memory to only allow RPL. On terminals without a screen or standard keyboard it was not possible to stop the adapter from trying DHCP mode if RPL timed out. Once DHCP had been selected, without the availability of a F2 key the user cannot get back to RPL mode. Even power off did not reset the adapter.

                  ATTENTION:

                  Do the following steps to setup for PCI Token Ring:
                  • Modify the terminal setup:
                    • Power the terminal on.
                    • When the SETUP message appears at the bottom of the screen, press F2.
                    • Select the BOOT option.
                      • Move "IBM PCI Token-Ring RPL and DHCP" as second boot sequence
                      • Set "LAN Adapter" as RPL protocol Exit terminal setup.
                  • Run LANAID (optional)
                    • Insert the diskette and reboot.
                    • Select option 1 to configure the adapter.
                    • Type /ripl=y /auto=y /rs=4 or 16
                    • Enter.
                    • Remove diskette.
                  • Run the PCIFLSH1 flash utility to configure the PCI TR adapter to RPL only.
                    • Insert the diskette and reboot.
                    • A message will inform you when the adapter flash memory has been changed.
                    • Remove diskette.

IBM PCI 16/4 Token-Ring Management Adapter


                  Attention: This adapter is supported only on 4694-244 and 4694-245 machines as either a controller/terminals or terminals.

                  The LANAID diskette for this adapter can be created from the file PCI_TR_lanaid.dsk, which is located at IBM Network support of the following Web Site:
                    http://www.networking.ibm.com/support
                  • After the PCI Token-Ring Management Adapter is installed, boot the box from the LANAID diskette.
                  • *At the LANAIDC > command prompt, enter /auto=n /ripl=n /rs=x, where x corresponds to your network speed in Mbps. Set ripl=y for terminals.
                  • Remove the diskette and re-IPL your system.


                  Note: The following applies to 4690 OS V2R4 and later:
                    • If one of the files below exists that forces a LAN speed (contents are ignored) then the code will not autosense and will attempt to insert into the ring at the defined speed.
                      • Force 04mb speed: in ADX_SDT1: ADXTP04F.DAT
                      • Force 16mb speed: in ADX_SDT1: ADXTP16F.DAT
                    • If neither of the above files exists in ADX_SDT1, the adapter will autosense. If the autosense fails, because there is no other device creating a speed, then a force insert at the default speed stored in the adapter flash memory will be attempted.
                    • In a system where various controllers have different default LAN speeds (a configuration error) it is possible for an autosense enabled adapter to start at a speed that is not compatible with the adapters that do not perform autosense. The non-autosense adapters will fail to insert into the ring if they do not define the ring speed first.
                    • If you are using this adapter in a terminal, you must flash the adapter. Download the file PCIFLSH1.EXE flash utility to diskette from the following Web Site (followed by searching the PCI Flash, PXE1), insert the diskette into the terminal and IPL. When complete, remove the diskette and IPL the terminal.
