Solution hardware setup
To set up the solution, install any options that have been purchased, cable the solution, configure and update the firmware, and install the operating system.
- Solution setup checklist
Use the solution setup checklist to ensure that you have performed all tasks that are required to set up your solution.
- Installation guidelines
Use the installation guidelines to install components in your server.
- Memory module installation rules and order
Memory modules must be installed in a specific order based on the memory configuration that you implement on your server.
- Install solution hardware options
This section includes instructions for performing initial installation of optional hardware. Each component installation procedure references any tasks that need to be performed to gain access to the component being replaced.
- Install the enclosure into the rails
Follow the instructions to install the enclosure into the rails.
- Cable the solution
Attach all external cables to the solution. Typically, you will need to connect the solution to a power source, to the data network, and to storage. In addition, you will need to connect the solution to the management network.
- Power on the compute node
After the compute node performs a short self-test (power status LED flashes quickly) when connected to input power, it enters a standby state (power status LED flashes once per second).
- Validate solution setup
After powering up the solution, make sure that the LEDs are lit and that they are green.
- Power off the compute node
The compute node remains in a standby state when it is connected to a power source, allowing the Lenovo XClarity Controller to respond to remote power-on requests. To completely power off the compute node (power status LED off), you must disconnect all power cables.
