Install the Hardware
- Mount the server into a rack or cabinet. See Installing the Servers in a Rack for both the
1U and 2U servers. Or, if you ordered the express rail rackmounting kit,
which has the same rack rail assemblies for both servers, see Installing the Servers With the Express Rail Rackmounting Kit.
Note - In the rest of this guide, the term rack means either an open
rack or a closed cabinet.
- Connect the server to a serial terminal or a terminal emulator (PC or
workstation) to display system messages. See Powering On the System for the First Time.
Tip - The serial terminal or a terminal emulator should be connected before you connect
the power cables. As soon as AC power is connected to the system,
the service processor immediately powers on and runs diagnostics. Diagnostic test failures will
be printed on the serial terminal. For more information, refer to the Integrated Lights Out Manager Supplement for Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 and T5240 Servers.
- Connect the data cables to the server, but do not connect the AC
power cable yet. See Connecting the Server Cables for Both Servers.
- Connect the AC power cable to the server and examine the display for
any error messages. See Powering On the System for the First Time.
Caution - There is a potential for electric shock if the server and related equipment
are not properly grounded.
Note - The service processor runs on the 3.3V standby voltage. As soon as
AC power is connected to the system, the service processor immediately powers on, runs
diagnostics, and initializes the ILOM firmware.
