They usually include 2 of these adapters along with cat5 cable with all 
currently sold servers, including the V120. Even with the V100. These 
are standard, similar to Cisco. You can order additional rj-45 to db-9 
adapters from Sun, part number 530-3100-xx or something like that.

The pinout is:
rj45               db-9
1                        8
2                        6
3                        2
4                        5
5                        5
6                        3
7                        4
8                        7
