The Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 Server Installation Guide provides instructions, background information, and reference material to help you install a SPARC Enterprise T2000 server.
Instructions for installation in this document assume that a system administrator is experienced with the Solaris Operating System (Solaris OS).
This guide is organized as follows:
Chapter 1 provides an installation overview for the server.
Chapter 2 provides instructions for installing the server into a rack.
Chapter 3 provides instructions for configuring and powering on the server and for installing additional software.
Appendix A provides instructions for updating the system controller firmware and the server firmware.
Appendix B provides instructions for selecting a boot device.
Standard components of the server are installed at the factory. However, if you ordered options such as a PCI card and monitor, these are shipped to you separately.
Note - Inspect the shipping carton(s) for evidence of physical damage. If a shipping carton appears damaged, request that the carrier's agent be present when the carton is opened. Keep all contents and packing material for the agent's inspection.
Verify that you have received all the parts of your server.
