Setting up the server for the first time takes about 1 hour. Plan for additional time if you are installing optional components and rackmounting hardware.
Caution - Do not apply full main power until instructed to do so. The server includes a service processor (SP) that is used to configure and boot the host server. To properly configure the host server and to view SP messages, do not apply AC power to the server until the SP and host networking connections are made, as described in this guide.
