Load CPPM Sig-Servers (5.5)

A CPPM card (NTDW61, NTDW99) can function as either a Call Server or Signalling Server.
When deploying as a Signalling Server, equip the card with a hard drive kit (NTDW05), and confirm the CSEL jumper (S5) is in the HD MASTER position: C2 (left down) to enable it.

A 'Leader' Signaling-Server is always required, though two servers may be installed in a load-sharing redundant configuration (one leader and a follower) for higher reliability.

The following applies to the CPPM (with hard drive) signaling server.
A Signaling Server does not require a security device or keycode.

Load 'Leader' Sig-Server

Put the instllation software in the front panel slot, and boot from it.
Remember to Press F to force board to boot from faceplate drive.
