Cable the Server
Connect external cables to the server in the following order. Refer to Rear Panel Connectors
for the location of connectors on the rear of the server.
- Connect an Ethernet cable to the Gigabit Ethernet (NET) connectors as needed for OS support.
- (Optional) If you plan to interact with the system console directly, connect any
additional external devices, such as a mouse and keyboard, to the server's USB
connectors and/or a monitor to the DB-15 video connector.
- If you plan to connect to the Oracle ILOM software over the network,
connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port labeled NET MGT.
Note - The service processor (SP) uses the NET MGT (out-of-band) port by default. You
can configure the SP to share one of the sever's four 10/100/1000 Ethernet
ports instead. The SP uses only the configured Ethernet port.
- If you plan to access the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) using the
management port, connect a serial null modem cable to the RJ-45 serial port
labeled SER MGT.
