Network connectivity checks For the server without OS ( just Racked hardware and powered up)
For X86 Hardware
We have to make LED checks – like when we disconnect the cable at the server side / switch side the Link / Act LEDs should lit up on powered on machines.
For Sparc based Servers:
We can watch individual interfaces to see if they have a connection and can ‘see’ the network. At the OBP prompt on the client, use the “watch-net-all” command to test and see the network devices.
