This directory contains the following files:

README.TXT      - This file
DE305.MIF       - The MIF file for the DE305 adapter

DE305.MIF is the  MIF (Management Information Format) file that 
describes the DE305 adapter.  This is for use with a DMI (Desktop 
Management Interface) compliant set of tools.  Details on how DMI 
works may be obtained from the DMTF (Desktop Management Task Force).  
The site ftp.dmtf.org may be accessed via anonymous FTP, and con-
tains documentation and other information concerning the work of 
the DMTF.

This README.TXT file describes the modifications that should be 
made to the MIF file at adapter installation time.  Although the 
file will work fine with no modification, the information in the 
file will be of significantly greater use with some simple updates.

To make the modifications, use any text editor.  The editor built 
into MS-DOS, or NOTEPAD under Windows, both work fine.


Setting the Serial Number
-------------------------

The serial number may be specified by replacing the <UserSpecified> 
field with the adapter serial number.  The adapter serial number is 
located on the adapter, as well as the box in which it is packaged.

The serial number attribute, before being modified, looks like this:

      Start Attribute
          Name        = "Serial Number"
          ID          = 4
          Description = "Serial number for this component."
          Access      = Read-Only
          Storage     = Specific
          Type        = String(64)
          Value       = "<UserSpecified>"     
      End Attribute              // Manually entered during setup

Edit the <UserSpecified> field, replacing it with the unit serial 
number, taking care to leave the quote marks.  Example:

The unit serial number is DEC0000001.  Modify the MIF file as 
follows:

      Start Attribute
          Name        = "Serial Number"
          ID          = 4
          Description = "Serial number for this component."
          Access      = Read-Only
          Storage     = Specific
          Type        = String(64)
          Value       = "DEC0000001"     
      End Attribute              // Manually entered during setup


Setting the Installation Time
-----------------------------

The installation time may be specified by editing the "Installation" 
attribute.  The "Value" field of the Installation attribute is a 
Date type, and is formatted as follows:

      "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.ffffff+zzz"

      YYYY   = Year
      MM     = Month   (01-12)
      DD     = Day     (01-31)
      hh     = Hour    (00-23)
      mm     = Minutes (00-59)
      ss     = Seconds (00-59)
      ffffff = Fractional seconds
      zzz    = Time zone shift

The installation attribute, before being modified, looks like this:

      Start Attribute
          Name        = "Installation"
          ID          = 5
          Description = "The date of the install of this component"
          Access      = Read-Only
          Storage     = Specific
          Type        = Date
          Value       = "19950627120000.000000+000"
      End Attribute

Edit the Value field, replacing it with the installation date and 
time, taking care to leave the quote marks.  Example:

You are installing the adapter on August 31, 1995 at 9:38 in the 
morning.  Modify the MIF file as follows:

      Start Attribute
          Name        = "Installation"
          ID          = 5
          Description = "The date of the install of this component"
          Access      = Read-Only
          Storage     = Specific
          Type        = Date
          Value       = "19950831093800.000000+000"
      End Attribute

Note that it is important that the exact format of the Value field 
is preserved.  There should be 14 decimal digits, followed by a 
decimal point, followed by 6 decimal digits, followed by a + sign, 
followed by 3 decimal digits.  There should be no whitespace, and 
quotes should enclose the field.


Using the MIF file
------------------

This MIF file will work with any DMI compliant management tool.  
Consult the documentation for your specific SMI management tool for 
information concerning adding a new MIF to the management database.
