Connecting the Network Cable

Network connections for the NC7170 Gigabit Server Adapter can employ existing UTP
Category 5 (or better) cable for Gigabit over copper transmissions. For new installations,
Category 5e (enhanced Category 5) or better cable is recommended.
To secure the cable, plug the cable connector into the RJ-45 port. Ensure that the tab on the
plug clicks into position indicating that it is properly seated.
For more information, refer to "UTP Cable Specifications" in Appendix C.
WARNING: If the server is not PCI Hot Plug compliant, power it down and unplug the
power cord from the power outlet before removing the server cover. Failure to do so
may damage the adapter or server.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the internal
system components to cool before touching them.
