Serial cable connection

You can use a serial cable to connect the CMM to a client computer or a serial-management network.

See Serial cable connection for serial-management connector pin assignments.

An optional cable kit with adapters is available to convert the CMM mini-USB connector for RJ-45, DB-9, or standard USB cable connection. See Lenovo ServerProven compatibility for available Lenovo Flex System options.

To connect a serial cable to the CMM for a management connection, complete the following steps:

  1. Connect one end of a serial cable to the mini-USB serial-management connector on the CMM.
  2. Connect the other end of the serial cable to the serial connector on the client system, such as a notebook computer, or to a serial-management network.
  3. Configure the serial device that the CMM connects to as follows:
    1. Baud rate = 115200
    2. Parity = none
    3. Stop bits = 1
