For instructions, see Connect a Terminal or Emulator to the SER MGT Port.
Note - When you power on the server for the first time and you do not have a terminal or terminal emulator (PC or workstation) connected to the SP SER MGT port, you will not see system messages.
Note - After the initial configuration of the system using the SP SER MGT port, communication with the SP and host is usually performed through this Ethernet interface.
For instructions, see Connect Ethernet Network Cables.
The SP runs on 3.3V standby voltage. As soon as AC power is connected to the system, the front panel SP OK/Fault LED flashes as the SP powers on, runs diagnostics, and initializes the Oracle ILOM firmware.
After the Oracle ILOM firmware initializes, the SP OK/Fault LED remains lit, the main power OK/Fault LED slowly flashes, and the SP login prompt displays on the terminal device. The host is not yet initialized or powered on.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX login: root Password: changeme . . . ->
After a brief delay, the SP prompt is displayed (->). At this point, there are many commands you can perform using the Oracle ILOM interface.
Additional SP information, such as how to change the password and how to set up the SP network parameters, is available in the Oracle ILOM online documentation set.

After you start the SP host console, the server initialization takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
You will be prompted to confirm the configuration several times, enabling confirmation and changes. If you are not sure how to respond to a particular value, you can accept the default, and make future changes when the Oracle Solaris OS is running. See Oracle Solaris OS Configuration Parameters for more information.
Once the server has been configured and you have changed the default password, the server is ready for normal use.
