HP Blade Server

Hi

 I am new to setting up a Blade Server and I am looking for some help on getting started. I have a HP Blade system with a p-class enclosure 6U. I have several HP BL25p G2, BL35p and 2 Cisco GESM intrerconnects.

 

I have the whole system racked and powered on. The next step is where I am having issues. There is no input for for monitor or keyboard/mouse. I realized I will need a local i/o cable in order to do any configurations. Where can i find a part no to order one?

 

Is there any other way to configure the server without the local i/o cable using remote management?

 

Next question is how to recover a password for the cisco interconnects?

 

Any other documentation to help me start this or management software I will need would be most helpful.

 

Thank you,

Jason

Re: HP Blade Server

I am not hands on familiar with the P Class, but there should be a management LAN interface you can point a web browser at.  Here is the documentation site for the enclosure:

Here is the part for the local IO SUVI cable:  http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=355935-001

Hi,

 

Regarding recovering CISCO switch password, I am not sure what type of switch you are using.  What is the model?

 

But here are some resources from HP and CISCO.

Hope this information helps.

Thanks.
