I need someone who really knows the bios internals of that power edge 860.
The cmos battery was exchanged because the diagnostic software reported low cmos battery voltage. Afterwards, the BIOS settings went back to defaults. We had it on defaults before, so I just adjusted time, date and year and rebooted.
For some odd reason, it now stops right before windows would boot and asks me if I wanted to use the BMC setup (F2) or continue (F1) and stays there...meaning everytime I needed to restart the server, I would have to enter the server room...
Does anyone know if the BMC setup includes an option to stop asking? Or where do I turn this off?
I had this problem years ago (solved it but can't remember how) and I am sure it was not that simple, that's why i did not even try to enter BMC setup but just F1-booted the server to make it accessible again.
