The following procedure describes how to use the Windows PC/terminal to connect the SBC 5000 series serial port and assign it an IP address.


  1. Connect one end of the supplied serial cable (DSUB 9-Pin Female to DSUB 9-Pin Male) to the SBC DB9 serial port and the other end to the serial port of your PC.

  2. Use the following serial port settings of PC.
    . Baud:38400
    . Data bits:8
    . Stop bits:1
    . Parity:None
    . Flow Control:None

  3. Login to the BMC using default credentials:
    At the prompt enter:
    Username: root
    Password: <password for root user of BMC> (default: superuser)

  4. Execute the command. Assign the BMC management IP address, netmask, default gateway and NTP time server IP address.


    # sh
    ***                BMC Initialization                     ***
    Enter BMC management IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)     :
    Enter BMC management netmask (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd):
    Enter default gateway IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)    :
    Enter NTP time server IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)    :
    Enter advanced configuration? <y/n>:n
    Note: The advanced configuration is used exclusively to configure static routes. For this installation example, enter "n".
    Verify your entries....
    bmcIpAddr       =
    bmcNetmask      =
    gatewayIpaddr   =
    ntpServerIpaddr =
    Ok to apply configuration? <y/N>:y
    Restarting NTP and network services ....
    Setting up IP spoofing protection: rp_filter.
    Reconfiguratoin network interfaces...done.
    Restarting NTP server: ntpd... done.
    Note: Reboot the BMC after completing the process.
  5. Connect the Field Service port of the SBC to the Ethernet router and access the BMC over the network.
