Rackmounted servers have been installed in an Oracle rack at the factory. These servers include power distribution units (PDUs) and hardware specifically designed for the servers. You must unpack, move, secure, cable, and power on these servers at your installation site.
While you can order a rackmounted SPARC M8-8 or SPARC M7-8 server, you can also order the servers stand-alone. A stand-alone server does not ship in an Oracle rack, so you must install the server in a customer-supplied rack. You must also provide your own PDUs to supply power to the server and use your rack's cable management devices to secure the server power cords and data cables. Refer to your PDU and rack documentation for more information.
This document provides installation instructions for both rackmounted and stand-alone servers.
