Do you have the manual I mentioned?  It's a pdf file, the first one at:

You are on the right track, first option to have access is using the serial
ports, don't confuse the label, LOM, it is a serial port and it can be used for
either terminal connection to a login prompt or Lights Out Management (LOM).
LOM is available even if the machine is off, it just needs to have power connected.

But all this is the same you can read on the manual I pointed out above.
