Install hardware options

Installing a DIMM

Install any hardware options before initializing the server. For options installation information, see the documentation that ships with the option. For server specific information, see the HPE ProLiant ML10 v2 Server User Guide.

Setting up the server

  1. Place the server on a flat, stable surface.
  2. Connect peripheral devices to the server.

    WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not plug telephone or telecommunications connectors into RJ-45 connectors.

  3. Connect the power cord to the rear of the server.
  4. Connect the power cord to the AC power source.

    WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:

    • Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
    • Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
    • Unplug the power cord from the power supply to disconnect power to the equipment.
    • Do not route the power cord where it can be walked on or pinched by items placed against it. Pay particular attention to the plug, electrical outlet, and the point where the cord extends from the server.

Connect cabling and power cords

  1. Connect the network cabling.

  2. Connect the power cord to the power supply.

    Connecting the power cord

    WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:

    • Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
    • Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
    • Unplug the power cord from the power supply to disconnect power to the equipment.

For more information about cabling the system, see the HPE ProLiant ML10 v2 Server User Guide.

Power up and select boot options

NOTE: The F5 key is not available to launch HPE SSA from POST.

Install the system software

To operate properly, the server must have a supported operating system installed. For the latest information on operating system support, see the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website.

A device driver is required for the operating system to communicate with the storage controller. Download the Service Pack for ProLiant from the SPP download site and create SPP media to extract the device driver required to complete OS installation.

The server does not ship with provisioning media or support Intelligent Provisioning.

To install an operating system on the server, create installation media on an optical disk or on USB media. Insert the optical drive into a USB-attached optical drive (user provided) or insert the USB device and reboot the server.

For more information, see the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website.

NOTE: The minimum required iLO version is iLO 4 v2.10.

Software and firmware must be updated before using the server for the first time, unless any installed software or components require an older version. For additional system software and firmware updates, download the Service Pack for ProLiant from the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website.

Driver updates are posted to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website. When prompted for product information, enter the appropriate server model name or controller model.

Register the server

To experience quicker service and more efficient support, register the product at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Product Registration website.
