Rear Cable Connections and Ports

The following figure shows the locations of cable connectors and ports on the back of the Oracle Server X6-2 and the cables and devices that you typically connect to them.

Cable Port or Expansion Slot
Power supply 0 input power
Power supply 1 input power
The server has two power supply connectors, one for each power supply.
Do not attach power cables to any installed power supplies until you have finished connecting the data cables to the server. The server goes into standby power mode and the Oracle ILOM service processor initializes when the AC power cables are connected to the power source. System messages might be lost after 60 seconds if the server is not connected to a terminal, PC, or workstation.

Note -  Oracle ILOM signals a fault on any installed power supply that is not connected to an AC power source, since it indicates a loss of redundancy.

Network management port (NET MGT)
The service processor NET MGT port is the optional connection to the Oracle ILOM service processor. The NET MGT port is configured by default to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). The service processor NET MGT port uses an RJ-45 cable for a 10/100/1000BASE-T connection.
Serial management port (SER MGT)
The service processor SER MGT port uses an RJ-45 cable and is the default connection to the Oracle ILOM service processor. This port supports local connections to the server and only recognizes Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) commands. Typically you connect a terminal or a terminal emulator to this port.

Note -  This port does not support network connections.

Ethernet ports (NET 3, NET 2, NET 1, NET 0)
The four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports enable you to connect the system to the network. See Ethernet Ports for more information.

Note -  Ethernet ports NET 2 and NET 3 are nonfunctional in single-processor systems.

5, 6
USB ports (USB 0, USB 1)
The two USB ports support hot-plugging. You can connect and disconnect USB cables and peripheral devices while the server is running without affecting system operations.
Video port (VGA, DB-15)
Use a 15-pin video cable to connect a VGA video device to the server. Optionally, you can connect to the VGA port when installing the operating system.
