Connect the SER MGT Cable
The service processor serial management port is marked SER MGT. See Front Panel Components and
Rear Panel Components for connector locations.
- Connect a Category 5 cable from the service processor SER MGT port to
the terminal device.
Use this port for initial server management. This port is needed to activate
the NET MGT port, as detailed in Powering On the Server for the First Time.
When connecting either a DB-9 or a DB-25 cable, use an adapter to
perform the crossovers given for each connector.
Note - Use the service processor serial management port only for server management. It is
the default connection between the service processor and a terminal or a computer.
Caution - Do not attach a modem to the service processor serial management port.
