Prepare to Power On the Server

  1. Choose the preferred way to set up your server network environment.

    The instructions in this guide work for any networking environment and require a terminal device for connecting ther server to the Oracle ILOM SP and to power on the server. You can establish a physical management connection to Oracle ILOM SP locally using the serial management port (SER MGT) or remotely using the Ethernet network management port (NET MGT). To establish a remote connection, see Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Remote Ethernet Connection.

  2. Obtain a terminal device to communicate with the SP, which can be a terminal, a terminal server, or a laptop running terminal emulation software.
  3. Set up the terminal device to use 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, and 1 stop bit.

    For DTE-to-DTE communication, use an RJ-45 crossover adapter with a standard RJ-45 cable to set up a null modem configuration so that transmit and receive signals are crossed over.
