Use this procedure to connect power cords to the server. When the power cords are connected, the server will be in standby power mode.
When power is connected, the server boots into standby power mode. In standby power mode, the Power/OK LED on the front panel (see Sun Fire X4170 M2 Server Front Panel, Sun Fire X4270 M2 Server Front Panel (With 12 Storage Drives) and Sun Fire X4270 M2 Server Front Panel (With 24 Storage Drives)) flashes in a Standby Blink pattern (0.1 seconds on, 2.9 seconds off), indicating that the service processor (SP) is working. Note that the server is not initialized or powered on yet.
Note - Do not apply main power to the rest of the server until you are ready to install and configure a platform operating system. At this point, power is supplied only to the SP board and the power supply fans.
