X7-2 Back Panel Connectors and Ports

The following figure shows the locations of cable connectors and ports on the back of the Oracle Server X7-2 and the cables and devices that you 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 the power supplies until you finish 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 might indicate 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.
Ethernet ports:
  • NET 0, 100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 GbE port

  • NET 1 and NET 2, 10/25GbE SFP+ ports

  • NET 1 and NET 2, 10GBASE-T RJ-45 GbE ports

The five Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports enable you to connect the system to the network.
Up to 10GbE is supported when using copper Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICS); up to 25GbE is supported when using optical GBICs.

Note -  The 10/25GbE SFP+ ports are the default network ports for the server. When using an SFP+ port, network connectivity is disabled on the 10GBASE-T RJ-45 GbE ports.

USB port
The USB port supports hot-plugging. You can connect and disconnect a USB cable or a peripheral device while the server is running without affecting system operations.
Serial management port (SER MGT)
The service processor SER MGT port uses an RJ-45 cable and terminal (or emulator) to provide access to the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI). Using Oracle ILOM, you can configure it to connect to the system console.

Note -  This port does not support network connections.
