The multi-port cable (dongle) provides a single multiple-interface access point to the blade. You can use the multi-port cable to connect devices directly into the universal connector port (UCP) on the front of the blade for service, maintenance, and OS installation procedures. Using the multi-port cable, you can work locally at the server and attach USB, serial, and video devices directly to the blade.
Your multi-port cable might have three cables, or it might have four cables. The four-port cable has a DB-9 serial connector, while the three-port cable does not. Your chassis might ship with a DB-9-to-RJ-45 serial cable adapter. The adapter allows you to attach a serial cable with a DB-9 connector to the blade using the RJ-45 port on the multi-port cable.
Caution - Possible damage to the cable, blade, or chassis. Disconnect the multi-port cable when you are finished using the cable. Otherwise, the cable, blade, or chassis can be damaged when the chassis door is closed or the cable is abruptly pulled.
The following illustration shows the interfaces available through the UCP using the three-connector multi-port cable.
