Review the latest information about Oracle software and hardware products: http://www.oracle.com/
This alternate text topic provides text that describes the deployment section of the of the Oracle Database Appliance X6-2S/X6-2M/X6-2L poster, or booklet.
Step 1: Rack, Cable, and Connect the Network and Power
Step 1 is on page 4 of the booklet.
Ensure that the system hardware is set up and mounted properly. See the Oracle Database Appliance Owner’s Guide for more information.
ImportantFollow the instructions on Page 7 to cable Oracle Database Appliance
The bullet points in the booklet are listed as numbered procedure steps in this alternate text description, for clarity. The connection procedure consists of the following steps.
Connect power to the power supply unit (PSU)
(Optional) Plug in the network cable for the ILOM network management
Connect the keyboard and mouse to USB ports and video display to VGA port
Page 7 of the poster shows graphic illustrations of the appliances, and the ports where cables are connected. Page 8 has a table of the callout numbers and a description for each callout. In this alternate text description, the ports associated with the callouts and descriptions are listed here.
Ports listed and described by callout numbers:
ILOM net management interface port, which is labeled ILOM NET MGT on the hardware. This is a service processor 10/100/1000 Base-T network interface.
(Optional) ILOM Server management interface port, which is labeled ILOM SER MGT on the hardware. This is a service Processor RJ-45 serial port.
10 gigabit Ethernet network interface port, which is labeled 10 GbE in the callout diagrams. This is a port with an RJ-45 connector (
10 gigabit Ethernet network interface port, which is labeled 10 GbE in the callout diagram. This is a port with an RJ-45 connector (
btbond2). This port is not available on Oracle Database Appliance X6-2S.
(Optional) 10 gigabit Ethernet dual-rate small form-factor pluggable port, which is labeled 10 GbE dual-rate SFP+ ports in the callout diagram (
Step 2: Start Up the System
Step 2 is on page 4 of the booklet. In this step, the booklet lists start up system steps using alphabetic labels (A, B). This alternate description uses numerals. Step A is 1, and step B is 2.
