Preparing for Installation

May 28, 2013

Before you install your new appliance, carefully unpack it and make sure that all parts were delivered. The hardware accessories, such as cables, adapters, and rail kit shipped with your appliance depend on the hardware platform you ordered. Unpack the box that contains your new appliance on a sturdy table with plenty of space and inspect the contents.

Hardware accessories, such as cables and rail kit, vary depending on the hardware platform you ordered.

Use the following list to verify that you received everything that should have been included in the box.
  • The appliance you ordered
  • Two orange 7 ft crossover 5E UTP patch cords
  • Two blue 7 ft straight-through 5E UTP patch cords
    Note: If the provided crossover (orange) and straight-through (blue) cables are not sufficient for your deployment, arrange for additional cables.
  • One power cable each for CloudBridge 600 Series and Repeater 8520/8540 appliances
  • Two power cables for Repeater 8820 appliance
  • Rail kits and screws for Repeater 8520/8540 and Repeater 8820 appliances
    • CloudBridge 600 Series appliances do not have rail kits. These appliances are bolted to the rack with screws.
    • If the rail kit that you received does not fit your rack, contact your Citrix sales representative to order the appropriate rail kit.
In addition to the items included in the box with your new appliance, you will need the following items to complete the installation and initial configuration process.
  • Ethernet cables for each additional Ethernet port that you will connect to your network.
  • One available Ethernet port on your network switch or hub for each Ethernet port that you want to connect to your network.
  • A computer to serve as a management workstation.
