A.3.1 Serial Management Port

The serial management connector (labeled SER MGT) is an RJ-45 connector that can be accessed from the rear panel. This port is the default connection to the server. Use this port only for server management.


Electrical

Caution - You must use a shielded Ethernet cable to maintain your server’s NEBS compliance. The cable’s shield must be grounded at both ends.


Serial Management Port Pin Numbering shows the pin numbering of the serial management port. Serial Management RJ-45 Connector Signals describes the pin signals.

If you need to connect to the SERIAL MGT port using a cable with either a DB-9 or a DB-25 connector, use a supplied adapter to perform the crossovers given for each connector. The supplied RJ-45 to DB-9 and RJ-45 to DB-25 adapters are wired as described in RJ-45 to DB-9 Adapter Crossovers  and RJ-45 to DB-25 Adapter Crossovers.
