Connect an Original PDU to a Static IP Address Network
Prior to starting this procedure, configure a PC or Oracle Solaris system to
permit a point-to-point connection to the PDU. For a PC, see Configure a Windows PC for a Point-to-Point Connection. See Configure an Oracle Solaris System for a Point-to-Point Connection for an Oracle Solaris system.
Connect a crossover patch cable from the system to the PDU metering unit's
RJ-45 Ethernet port.
Do not connect a standard Ethernet cable between the system and the PDU,
since the internal pinouts for a crossover cable are different from the
pinouts used in a standard Ethernet cable. See Crossover Cable Pinout Diagram for
the pinout diagram of a crossover cable.
Connect the PDU power input lead to the AC power source.
You need to connect only one PDU power input lead to power on the PDU
On PDUs that have one power input lead, connect that one power
lead to the AC power source.
On PDUs with two power leads, connect the first power lead
(labeled 0) to the AC power source.
On PDUs with three power input leads, connect the middle power
lead (labeled 1) to the AC power source.
On the system, use a web browser to log in to the PDU metering
Type the metering unit's factory-default 0.0.0.0

Disconnect the crossover cable from the PDU metering unit.
Connect an Ethernet cable to the PDU metering unit's RJ-45 Ethernet port
and to the network.
On a system connected to the network, use a web browser to log on to the
PDU metering unit.
Type the metering unit's static IP address into the browser's address
line. If the network configuration was successful, the browser displays the
Current Measurement page.
Connect the remaining PDU power input leads to the AC power source.
