After supplying power to the server, monitor the power supply LEDs and other LEDs located on the front and rear indicator panels.
See Identifying Components (Installation) for the location of the power supplies.
Soon after you connect AC power to the server, one of the two SPs will assume the role of the Active SP. The front and rear SP LEDs blink as the Active SP powers on, runs diagnostics, and initializes the Oracle ILOM firmware. See Identifying Components (Installation) for the location of the indicator panels, and refer to Interpreting LEDs in SPARC M8 and SPARC M7 Servers Service Manual for a description of these indicators.
Once the Active SP initializes, the AC OK LEDs on the rear indicator panel light, indicating that AC power is being supplied to the labeled power supplies, and that the power supplies are under Oracle ILOM control.
When the Active SP is ready, the SP LEDs remain lit and the Oracle ILOM login prompt displays on the Active SP terminal device.
