Read the following cable requirements for connecting the server.
Minimum cable connections for the server:
At least one server on-board Ethernet network connection (NET port)
Serial management port (SER MGT): Service Processor (SP) local connection for Oracle ILOM boot messages
Power cables for the server power supplies
SP management ports:
The SER MGT port uses an RJ-45 cable and is always available. This port is the default connection to the Oracle ILOM SP.
The network management port (NET MGT) is the optional connection to the Oracle ILOM SP. The NET MGT port is configured to use DHCP by default. To set a static IP address, see Modifying Network Settings. The SP network management port uses an RJ-45 cable for a 10/100/1000 BASE-T connection.
The Ethernet ports, labeled NET 0, NET 1, and NET 2, connect the server to the network.
The Ethernet interfaces operate at 100 Mbps, 1000 Mbps, and 10,000 Mbps.
USB Ports: You can connect and disconnect USB cables and peripheral devices while the server is running without affecting server operations.
AC power cables: Two power supply connectors, one for each power supply.
