Prepare the power cords by routing them from the AC power source to the server. To provide redundancy, route the server power cords to alternate power sources. For power cord requirements, see Power Cord-to-PDU Relationship (SPARC M8-8 and SPARC M7-8) and Stand-Alone Server Power Cord Requirements.
Caution - Use only the power cords provided with the server.
Caution - Do not attach power cables to the power supplies until you have connected the server to a serial terminal or a terminal emulator (PC or workstation). The server goes into Standby mode and the Oracle ILOM firmware on the SP initializes as soon as two power cables connect two power supplies to an external power source. System messages might be lost after 60 seconds if a terminal or terminal emulator is not connected before power is applied.
Do not attach the power cords to the power supplies at this time.
Refer to your rack documentation for instructions.
