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:

  1. 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.
  2. Connect a monitor and keyboard to the server.

    The server’s serial COM1 port connection has the following configuration:

    • Speed—9600 bps

    • Data bits—8

    • Parity—none

    • Stop bits—1

  3. Connect the server to the appropriate Ethernet network through the 10/100Base-T port labeled 1.
  4. 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.
