Plug it in, and load up a hypervisor! Make sure to set up your iLO, too.

Without knowing if this is a professionally refurbished / checked unit and as you've not given details as yet, I'd offer that if it has a RAID card, check for a battery unit attached. Some of these can become swollen and leak with age - potentially damaging and dangerous.
Just a precaution.
Otherwise - like @scottalanmiller suggested, load up a hypervisor like XCP-ng, Proxmox VE, or your preferred Linux persuasion ( Ubuntu, Fedora, Centos, Debian ) and use those as your virtualisation and / or containerisation platforms. Microsoft flavour preference? Try Hyper-V Server. Note these are solely examples, other options exist!
