The server panel features two types of physical management ports: RS-232 Serial (DB-9) and 10/100/1000 Ethernet (RJ45).
|1||Serial management port (RS-232 DB-9 connector)|
|2||Ethernet management port 0 for customer facing management (RJ45 connector)|
|3||Ethernet management port 1 for private management (RJ45 connector)|
RS-232 serial management port
The server has one RS-232 connection port, located on the rear panel of the server. This serial port is intended to be used during system setup. The serial port is not intended as a permanent management connection. This port should not be used as the primary management interface for the server. The primary management interface to the server is through the NAS Manager or through server's command line interface (CLI), which can be accessed through the network.
Any VT100 terminal emulation interface can be used to access to the CLI so that you can perform management or configuration functions. Connect the terminal to the serial port on the rear panel of the server, then set the host settings to the values shown in the following table to ensure proper communication between the terminal and the server.
|Connection||Crossover (null modem) cable|
|Baud rate||115,200 Bps|
10/100/1000 Ethernet management ports
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet management ports are used to connect the server or node to the customer facing management network and the private management network, or to connect directly to another device for management purposes.
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports operate at speeds of up to one (1) gigabit per second, and require the use of a standard RJ45 cable connector. Once connected, each GE port has two indicator LEDs; one on the top left and the second on the top right of the port.
