Note - When you power on the server for the first time and you do not have a terminal or terminal emulator (PC or workstation) connected to the SP SER MGT port, you will not see system messages.
Note - After the initial configuration of the server using the SER MGT port, communication with the SP and host is usually performed through this NET MGT port.
Note - Use two power connections on separate circuits for redundancy.
Power is immediately supplied to the SP and the front panel SP OK/Fault LED flashes (See Front Panel Components). The SP then runs diagnostics and initializes the Oracle ILOM firmware.
After the Oracle ILOM firmware initializes, the SP OK/Fault LED remains lit, the main power OK/Fault LED slowly flashes, and the SP login prompt displays on the terminal device. However, the host is not initialized or powered on yet.

After a brief delay, the Oracle ILOM prompt is displayed (->). At this point, there are many commands you can perform using the Oracle ILOM interface.
Additional SP information, such as how to change the password and how to set up the SP network parameters is available in the Servers Administration.

After you start the SP host console, the server initialization takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
You are prompted to confirm the configuration several times, enabling confirmation and changes. If you are not sure how to respond to a particular value, you can accept the default, and make future changes when the Oracle Solaris OS is running. See Oracle Solaris OS Configuration Parameters for a description of the Oracle Solaris OS parameters you must provide during initial configuration.
Once the server has been configured and you have changed the default password, the server is ready for normal use.
