Initializing the device - IBM Websphere

By default, the device is locked down. Enablement of the device interfaces is accomplished using the serial port on the device. Connect a serial cable to the device prior to switching the power ON. Also,connect the power cords for both power supplies in order to take advantage of power supply redundancy and to avoid getting repeated error messages in the appliance log. If the terminal or personal computer is not equipped with a serial port, acquire and use a USB-to-serial cable. Ensure that the terminal or personal computer is configured for standard 9600 baud, 8N1, and no flow control. It is a good idea to read this short chapter prior to the installation.
