Cabling Requirements

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)

      See Ethernet Ports.

    • Serial management port (SER MGT): Service processor (SP) local connection for Oracle ILOM boot messages

      See SER MGT Ports.

    • Power cables for the server power supplies

      See Connect Cables and Power Cords.

  • SP management ports:

    The server includes two management ports for use with the Oracle ILOM service processor (SP).

    • The serial management port (SER MGT) is the default connection to the Oracle ILOM SP. The SP serial management port uses an RJ-45 cable and is always available for a CLI connection.

      See SER MGT Ports.

    • The network management port (NET MGT) is the optional connection to the Oracle ILOM SP. The SP network management port uses an RJ-45 cable for a 10/100/1000 BASE-T connection.

      See NET MGT Port.

  • NET Ethernet ports:

    The Oracle Server X8-2 back panel includes five Ethernet network ports, labeled SER MGT, NET MGT, NET 0, NET 1, and NET 2 that connect the server to the network. The server Ethernet interfaces operate at 1000 Mbps, and 10,000 Mbps.

    • NET 0: 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 GbE port

    • NET 1: 10/25GbE SFP+ port or 10GBASE-T RJ-45 GbE port options

    • NET 2: 10/25GbE SFP+ port or 10GBASE-T RJ-45 GbE port options

    See X8-2 Back Panel Connectors and Ports.

    The Oracle Server X8-2L back panel includes three network Ethernet ports, labeled SER MGT, NET MGT, NET 0 that connect the server to the network. The server Ethernet interfaces operate at 100 Mbps (Oracle Server X8-2L only), 1000 Mbps, and 10,000 Mbps.

    • NET 0: 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 GbE port

    See X8-2L Back Panel Connectors and Ports.

    See Ethernet Ports.

  • USB Ports: The server USB ports support hot-plug insertion and removal. You can connect and disconnect USB cables and peripheral devices while the server is running without affecting server operations.

    See USB Port.

  • AC power cables: The server has two power supply connectors, one for each power supply.

    See Connect Cables and Power Cords.
