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)
Plug in the network cable for the ILOM network management
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.
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 (
(Optional) 10/25 gigabit SFP28 ports, (
Note: You can configure the system to use either the 10 GbE RJ-45 network ports or the 10/25 GbE SFP+ ports
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.
Once the green light labeled SP OK LED on the hardware is steady on, you start up the system by pushing the power button. The SP OK LED is marked with the callout label number 1 in the graphic illustration in Step 2 in the booklet. The power button is marked with the callout label number 2 in the graphic illustration in Step 2 in the booklet.

configure-firstnet to configure the initial network for btbond1.
Oracle Database Appliance X7-2S and X7-2M have two highly available networks.
Use either the 10gBase-T network interface, or the 10GbE SFP+ network interface. The following text is an example of the screen output that you see when you enter the command:
# configure-firstnet Select the Interface to configure the network on (btbond1) [btbond1]:btbond1 Configure DHCP on btbond1 (yes/no) [no]:no INFO: You have chosen Static configuration Enter the IP address to configure : 10.1.10.2 Enter the Netmask address to configure : 255.255.255.0 Enter the Gateway address to configure: [10.1.10.1] INFO: Plumbing the IPs now INFO: Restarting the network Shutting down interface btbond1: bonding: btbond1: Removing slave em2. bonding: btbond1: releasing active interface em2 bonding: btbond1: making interface em3 the new active one. bonding: btbond1: Removing slave em3. bonding: btbond1: releasing active interface em3 ::::::::::
Step 4: Update the Repository with the GI and RDBMS Files
Step 4 is on page 5 of the booklet. For clarity, the sequence of steps that is shown in alphabetical lists are described in numbered sequential steps in this alternate text description.
