Setting up KNL

We just received a new Intel KNL system. It has 4 sleds in a single chassis. The interface ports we have with the system is, for each sled, (2) USB 3.0 ports and (2) NICs. I'm trying to get access to the system.

First thought was to get an adapter from USB -> VGA so we can open a console and set up the system. But, the system didn't have adapters installed to support this adapter.

Second thought was to use Intel's RMM4 (remote management module), so I booted up the system w/ the 2 NICs plugged in to one of the sleds. But, as far as I can tell, no new IPs are taken from the switch, the NICs do light up and flash to show activity however.

Does anyone have any ideas on how we can get a screen to open on this system?

I was able to track down the specific cable that is required to get VGA access. Thank you for investigating, I think I can take over from here.
