See the instructions in Installing the Server.
Note - After the initial configuration of the system, communication with the SP and host is usually performed through an Ethernet interface.
To provide redundancy, plug both power supplies into separate power sources.
The system can operate with only one power connection, but there is no redundancy in this case.
After a few minutes, the SP login prompt appears on the terminal device. The host is not initialized or powered on yet.

After you start the HOST console, the server initialization takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
Tip - If you are not sure how to respond to a particular value, you can accept the default and make changes at another time when the OS is running.
Note - You will be prompted to confirm the configuration multiple times. You will be able to change parameter values if desired at each of these confirmation points.
Once the server has been configured and you have changed the default password, the server is ready for normal use.
