Depending on the model, the appliance has the following ports:

  • RS232 serial console port.
  • One 10/100Base-T copper Ethernet Port (RJ45), also called LOM port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the Citrix ADC software.
  • One 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet management port (RJ45), numbered 0/1. The management port is used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
  • Network Ports
    • MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 6x1G SFP). Six 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Ethernet ports (RJ45) numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 on the top row from left to right, and six 1-gigabit copper or fiber 1G SFP ports numbered 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, 1/11, and 1/12 on the bottom row from left to right.
    • MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 2x10G SFP+). Six 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Ethernet ports (RJ45) numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 on the top row from left to right and two 10-gigabit SFP+ ports numbered 10/1 and 10/2 on the bottom row from left to right.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 appliance:

  • One 256 GB removable solid-state drive, which is used to store the Citrix ADC software and the user data.

Note: Earlier MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 appliances had three additional SSD slots for future use. Current Citrix ADC MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 appliances do not have any additional SSD slots for future use.

  • Power switch, which turns off power to the appliance, just as if you were to unplug the power supply. Press the switch for five seconds to turn off the power.

  • USB port (reserved for a future release).

  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button, which is used at the request of Technical Support to produce a Citrix ADC core dump. You must use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object to press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation.

  • Disable alarm button, which is nonfunctional. This button is functional only if you install a second power supply.

    Press this button to stop the power alarm from sounding when you have plugged the appliance into only one power outlet, or when one power supply is malfunctioning and you want to continue operating the appliance until it is repaired.

  • Single power supply, rated at 450 watts, 110-220 volts. Maximum power consumption is 250 watts and typical power consumption is 185 watts.

Note: The MPX 8005/8015/8200/8400/8600/8800 appliance supports dual power supplies, but ships with one power supply. Contact your Citrix sales representative to order a second power supply.
