Troubleshooting system setup

During system setup, you may receive one or more of the following system messages.
SNMP is not enabled

The probable cause for this message is that platform statistics detected that the Network Interface Object was not enabled. Enable the SNMP service.

Platform Stats Informational: Please execute diskperf.exe -y to enable Logical Disk performance counters.

The probable cause is that platform statistics detected that the logical disk counters were not enabled. Enable logical disk counters.

Platform statistics do not appear to be enabled

Platform not in Statistics Table (when issuing the 'sh stat platform' command)

Type  the following command:

sh perf

The system now displays this message:

Server Performance Monitoring is now enabled.

When the statistics are ready to be displayed, the system displays the following message, where

n is the number of current transactions or users.
n Transactions/Minute, n Users

You can now reissue the sh stat platform command.
