Sunfire X4100 server


I am currently on Sunfire X4100. This server doesn't have CDROM drive. Also I can't get to the OK prompt. From my laptop, I am connected to the management port using the Cisco Blue cable.

Please advise how can I get to the OK prompt. Also the server is so loud. Will the FAN cool down or this is how it's going to be.

The X4100 is a X86 server, so there is no ok prompt only a bios screen. connect to the serial management port and setup a IP address for the ILOM.

check the documentation for the procedures:
