Starting Up Server Diagnostics

background image

If you insert the Admin Tools CD in another computer and run Remote Install Mac OS X
(located in /Applications/Utilities/ on the computer), you can hold down the Option
key and choose the Administration Tools volume before starting up Mac OS X to run
Server Diagnostics EFI from the disc.

The Startup Disk pane of System Preferences can start up Server Diagnostics Mac OS X,
but not Server Diagnostics EFI. You can press the Option key at startup to start up
either Server Diagnostics Mac OS X or Server Diagnostics EFI.

The server becomes unavailable whenever you use Server Diagnostics. Before starting
tests, alert your users that the server will be unavailable.
