- Prepare the Server: Before installing the adapter, ensure that the server is powered off and unplugged from the power source. Remove the server cover and locate an available PCIe slot for the adapter. Verify that the slot is compatible with the adapter and is not being used by any other device.
- Install the Adapter: Gently insert the adapter into the PCIe slot, making sure it is securely seated. Tighten the retention screw to secure the adapter in place.
- Connect the Network Cables: Connect the network cables to the adapter ports. The HP Dual Port 10GBe Server Adapter has two ports, labeled Port 1 and Port 2. Connect the cables to the appropriate ports based on your network configuration.
- Boot the Server and Install Drivers: Once the adapter is physically installed, power on the server and boot into the operating system. Download and install the appropriate drivers for your operating system from the HP website or installation CD that came with the adapter.
- Configure the Adapter: After the drivers are installed, open the network adapter settings in your operating system. Configure the adapter with the appropriate network settings, such as IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server.
- Verify the Adapter Settings: Verify that the adapter is working properly by checking the network connectivity and verifying the adapter settings. You can use network diagnostic tools or ping commands to test the connection.
