This appendix gives the pinouts for the server rear ports and identifies connectors on various server boards. Topics include:
The server has four autonegotiating 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet system domain ports. All four Ethernet ports use a standard RJ-45 connector, the transfer rates for which are given in TABLE A-1. FIGURE A-1 shows the pin numbering of the ports. TABLE A-2 describes the pin signals.

The server has one 10BASE-T Ethernet management domain interface, labeled NET MGT. For information on configuring this port for managing the server with ILOM, refer to the Sun Integrated Lights Out Manager 2.0 User’s Guide.
|Caution - If you are planning to use the network management (NET MGT) port, you must use a shielded Ethernet cable to maintain your server’s NEBS compliance. The cable’s shield must be grounded at both ends.|

The server has one serial port, labeled SER MGT. TABLE A-4 lists the default serial connection settings for the serial port.
The serial management connector (labeled SER MGT) is an RJ-45 connector that can be accessed from the rear panel. This port is the default connection to the server. Use this port only for server management.
|Caution - You must use a shielded twisted-pair (STP) Ethernet cable to maintain your server’s NEBS compliance. The cable’s shield must be grounded at both ends.|
FIGURE A-3 shows the pin numbering of the serial management port. TABLE A-5 describes the pin signals.

If you need to connect to the SERIAL MGT port using a cable with either a DB-9 or a DB-25 connector, use a supplied adapter to perform the crossovers given for each connector. The supplied RJ-45 to DB-9 and RJ-45 to DB-25 adapters are wired as described in TABLE A-6 and TABLE A-7.
The video connector (VGA) is an HD-15 connector that can be accessed from the back panel.

The alarm port on the rear panel uses a standard DB-15 connector. In a telecommunications environment, use this port to connect to the central office alarming system. FIGURE A-5 shows the pin numbering of the alarm port. TABLE A-9 describes the pin signals.
|Note - The alarm port relay contacts are rated for 100 V 0.2 A maximum.|
FIGURE A-5 Alarm Port Pin Numbering
Each alarm has a corresponding alarm LED on the front panel:
The server has four USB ports for attaching supported USB 2.0 compliant devices. USB ports 0 and 1 are on the rear panel and USB ports 2 and 3 are on the motherboard. FIGURE A-6 shows the pin numbering of the USB ports and TABLE A-10 describes the pin signals.
