Sun Netra X6270 M2 Server Module Hardware and Software Features
This chapter summarizes the features available on the Sun Netra X6270 M2 server module and contains the following topics:
FIGURE 1-1 identifies the front panel buttons, indicators, and ports on the server.

|Caution - Do not use the NMI button unless you are instructed to do so by authorized service personnel. The NMI button sends an NMI dump request to the CPUs, which is used by service personnel for debugging activities.|
Your system chassis is shipped with a dongle cable that enables you to connect communication devices directly to the front panel of the server module:
|Note - The 3-Cable Dongle II is typically provided with each Sun Netra 6000 DC modular system. Additional cables may be ordered.|
You can use the VGA or USB connectors on the dongle cable to communicate with the server module BIOS and operating system. Or, you can use the serial connector to communicate with the server module SP.
|Caution - You should use the dongle cable only for configuration and service purposes. Disconnect the dongle cable from the server module after the configuration or service operation is complete to avoid damaging the cable.|
FIGURE 1-2 illustrates how to attach the 3-Cable Dongle to the server module universal connector port (UCP).

Note - Inset (1a and 1b) shows motherboard-facing connections and replaceable components. See Installing or Servicing a Fabric Expansion Module (FEM).
The minimum CPU configuration shipped includes one CPU with a heatsink. An air baffle is shipped to cover the empty CPU socket (not shown in FIGURE 1-4). Additional CPUs may be ordered.
Note - In the example shown in FIGURE 1-4, the CPUs are installed under the two heatsinks.
