Preparing a New Server
When you receive a new CTPView server, you must perform some physical tasks before proceeding.
To prepare a new server for use:
- If you wish to install the server in an equipment rack, follow the instructions provided in the Rack Installation Guide that is included with the server.
- Connect a monitor and keyboard to the server.
The server’s serial COM1 port connection has the following configuration:
- Connect the server to the appropriate Ethernet network through the 10/100Base-T port labeled 1.
- Verify that all ground and power connections to the server chassis are secure. Power on the server and monitor the front panel LEDs to verify that the server boots properly.
