Ethernet Ports

Oracle Server X8-2 has three RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports (labeled NET0, NET1, and NET2) and two SFP+/SFP28 10/25GbE ports (labeled NET1 and NET2) on the server back panel. RJ-45 port NET0 supports 10/100/1000 GbE, and RJ-45 ports NET1 and NET2 support 1/10 GbE.

Oracle Server X8-2L has one RJ-45, 10/100/1000 GbE port, labeled NET0. Use any of these ports to connect the server to the network.

Note -  To achieve 10GbE network speeds, use Category 6 (or better) cables and network devices that support 1000BASE-T networks.

There are two status indicators (LEDs) for each Ethernet port:

  • Indicators for RJ-45 ports are located above each port and display Link/Activity (left) and Speed (right)

  • Indicators for SFP28 ports (Oracle Server X8-2 only) are located above and below each port and display Link/Activity (top) and Speed (bottom)

The following tables list the Ethernet transfer rates and the Speed LED colors for each server.
