Connecting a Serial Cable

The 5288 V3 server provides one standard DB9 serial port on the rear, which works as the system serial port by default. You can set it as the iBMC serial port on the iBMC CLI.

The serial port can be used in the following scenarios:

  • Used as the iBMC serial port for debugging and fault locating.

For details about the command for setting the serial port to the iBMC serial port, see the HUAWEI Rack Server iBMC User Guide.
