Supporting diagnostics

You can use diagnostic utilities to diagnose adapter problems.

IBM® adapter diagnostics can be performed by downloading diagnostic utilities from Fix Central. Vendor adapter diagnostics can be performed by downloading diagnostic utilities from vendor websites. For a list of vendor websites, refer to Table 1.

  • The 8001-12C, 8001-22C, 8005-12N, and 8005-22N systems do not have a diagnostics DVD.
