Attach Devices to the Server

This section provides information about connecting devices to server (remotely and locally), so you can interact with the service processor (SP) and the server console. For port and connector information, see Back Panel Ports and Connectors.

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable to the Gigabit Ethernet (NET) connectors as needed for OS support.
  2. To connect to the service processor's Oracle ILOM over the network, connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port labeled NET MGT.
  3. To access the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) locally using the management port, connect a serial null modem cable to the RJ-45 serial port labeled SER MGT.
  4. To interact with the system console locally, connect a mouse and keyboard to the server front panel USB connectors and a monitor to the server front panel DB-15 video connector.
