SYSCFG • Some options may not be present on all systems, which may be due to the BIOS version or hardware feature set. The usage information generated by running SYSCFG without arguments shows only those options that are valid for your system. • The "--devseq" option is present only if you have an available, bootable hard-disk partition. If this option is present in the configuration file, but not present on your system, you will receive a usage error.
• The "--solbitrate" option in "solcfgparams" and the "--mgscommbitrate" option in "serialcfgparams" accept a baud rate of 57600, but tools such as "ipmish" and "solproxy" do not function at that baud rate for PowerEdge systems. • On PowerEdge 1950, 2950 and PowerVault NX 1950 systems with internal USB, BIOS setting configuration for internal USB Port is possible only if User Accessible/external (UA) USB ports are set to "All Ports On.
A minimum BIOS version is recommended on some of the platforms for all the DTK options to work properly. In general, it is a good practice to use the latest ("n") version of BIOS firmware or the "n-1" version that is available on "support.dell.com."
