Since it sounds like you do not have a build sheet or printout of the configuration of the server you will need to manually identify the hardware using server management tools. I am not that familiar with IBM hardware but I am assuming it is like Dell and HP in that it has a a management tool that wil tell you aout the installed hardware. The other opition is look at Window;s deivce manager and see what hardware it identifies

If not you will wither need to open the server and see what is installed or reboot the host and watch boot to see what cards NIC/storage adapters are installed -
