Intel Client Instrumentation 3.0 for Desktop Management Interface (DMI) 2.0 ====================================================================== Readme Contents =============== A. Folder Contents and Overview B. Software Requirements and Install File Locations C. Uninstall Procedure D. Compilation (Installation) of the MIF Files E. Supported Standards F. Known Issues A. Folder Contents and Overview ================================= This folder contains Intel Client Instrumentation for DMI Ver 3.0 for: Microsoft* Windows NT* 4.0 with Service Pack 3 including NDIS HotFix or with a subsequent Service Pack Windows* 95 (NDIS drivers only) Windows 98 Windows ME and Windows 2000. This folder contains the MIFfiles your management software will need to view in order to view the Intel(r) adapter functions. The DMI 2.0 SP SDK v1.10 (Service Provider) setup program is located under Windows\Dmi\Win32_SP on the CD. This must be installed or Intel Client Instrumentation for DMI Version 3.0 will not work. The DMI 2.0 Service Provider (SP) and Client Instrumentation 3.0 for Windows (CI) are updated software modules that allow standards-based DMI 2.0 applications, including Intel's LANDesk(R) Client Manager, to monitor the status of PCI adapters. The drivers included in this folder can be used to view both single adapter information and custom information including AFT/ALB Teaming, VLAN, and Flow Control. B. Software Requirements and Install File Locations ==================================================== The software requirements to run the Intel Client Instrumentation are: - A Windows 9x or NT based operating system including Windows 2000. - Any Intel NDIS PCI adapter driver. Intel Client Instrumentation supports all Intel PCI PRO/100, PRO/100+ and PRO/1000 adapters. If you are running an NDIS based driver under Windows NT 4.0, there is no need to install any new drivers to get DMI support. The Service Provider must be installed in order to use the Intel DMI Instrumentation. However, the instrumentation may be installed either before or after installing the Service Provider. If you have a Service Provider later than Version 2.0 already installed, you do not need to install the Service Provider from this CD. To install the Intel Client Instrumentation (this is not order dependent): - Run \windows\dmi\Win32_SP\SETUP.EXE (to install the Service Provider) - Restart the system. This is required for the Service Provider to start. - Run \windows\dmi\Win32\INSTALL.EXE (to install the Client Instrumentation) Contact your Network Administrator if you need help with installation. To install the actual MIF provided information for the Intel adapter, you must use your Management Software (see Section E). The install for this release of the Intel DMI instrumentation has a silent mode. No dialog boxes are produced for the silent mode. In the silent mode, all output goes to a user definable log file. In order to use the silent mode, execute the following command line executable from the directory with the installation files: install.exe dmiinst.exe nocopy forceinstall logfile=c:\mylog.txt The inclusion of the logfile parameter is what forces the silent install. The command must be given from the source directory, such as \windows\dmi\win32\ on the installation disk. C. Uninstall Procedure ====================== To properly uninstall the Client Instrumentation, the Service Provider software must still be running. Then go to Add/Remove Software in the Windows Control Panel and select "Intel Client Instrumentation for DMI" and click the Remove button. After Intel Client Instrumentation is gone from this list, you may remove the Service Provider software through the Start Programs menu. MIFs usually do not require removal, but if you should wish to remove the Intel specific files, see the documentation for your Management application. D. Compilation (Installation) of the MIF Files =================================================== DMI: In order to access the Intel adapter specific data through the Intel Client Instrumentation, you may need to load the NI_NIC.MIF file. Read the documentation for your management application for more information on how to load MIF files. E. Supported Standards ====================== The Intel Client Instrumentation Version 2.0 fully supports the DMI 2.0 specification. At this time there are no user SETs. There are sets in the IBM Failover Adapter Table Group that are required by the IBM Hotplug process but there is no user set allowed. Only the following events listed in the ni_nic.mif are currently supported: - Cable unplugged/No LAN activity - Adapter initialization failure - AFT/ALB events (Adapter Fault Tolerance/Adaptive Load Balancing) F. Known Issues =============== 1. Known Problems in Installation and Uninstallation Order: a. Version 3.0 of the Intel Client Instrumentation may not install correctly over an existing Version 1.0 of the Intel DMI Network Adapter Instrumentation Layer. The Uninstall feature may not work correctly after upgrading so please uninstall Ver 1.0 BEFORE upgrading. In order to install Version 3.0 correctly, please use the documented Uninstall procedures for Version 1.0. b. If the TCP/IP protocol is removed after installing the Client Instrumentation, you must reinstall the Client Instrumentation again after you reinstall TCP/IP. --------------------------------------------------------------- * Other product and corporate names may be trademarks of other companies and are used only for explanation and to the owner's benefit, without intent to infringe.
