HP Proliant DL580 G7 - Difficulty in Internet Connection and Fedora Installation

Hi,

 

My department has purchased HP Proliant DL580 G7 server. We are having the difficulty in connecting it to internet. At present there is maximum 1000 Mbps ethernet switch for connecting to net. Is that enough for net connection. Also, we are having difficulty in installing fedora 16 on this server. After installation , the mouse cursor is not visible. Can you please respond to these queries..

Could you elaborate the issues to get a better understanding?

 

When you say that you cannot connect to the internet, can the server be pinged from the intranet?

 

How about IP and DNS addressing?

 

Where the Ethernet cable and switch ports checked?

 

Are the link and the activity LEDs lit when Ethernet cable is connected to the NIC port on the server?

 

Is the issue with embedded NIC or any expansion NIC?

 

Also, could you elaborate if there were any error messages when the operating installation was done?

 

Does the server POSTs successfully without any error messages?

 

Are all the NICs recognized during POST?

 

 

Regards,
