The following illustration shows the connectors on the rear of the server.
Ethernet connectors: Use either of these connectors to connect the server to a
network. When you use the Ethernet 1 connector, the network can be shared with
the IMM through a single network cable.
Power-cord connector: Connect the power cord to this connector.
USB connectors: Connect a USB device, such as USB mouse, keyboard, or other
USB device, to any of these connectors.
Serial connector: Connect a 9-pin serial device to this connector. The serial port is
shared with the integrated management module (IMM). The IMM can take control of
the shared serial port to perform text console redirection and to redirect serial
traffic, using Serial over LAN (SOL).
Video connector: Connect a monitor to this connector. The video connectors on
the front and rear of the server can be used simultaneously.
Note: The maximum video resolution is 1600 x 1200 at 75 Hz.
Systems-management Ethernet connector: Use this connector to connect the
server to a network for systems-management information control. This connector is
used only by the IMM.
The following illustration shows the LEDs on the rear of the server.
Ethernet activity LEDs: When these LEDs are lit, they indicate that the server is
transmitting to or receiving signals from the Ethernet LAN that is connected to the
Ethernet link LEDs: When these LEDs are lit, they indicate that there is an active
link connection on the 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-TX interface for the
Locator LED (blue)
