The Citrix SWG MPX 14020/14030/14040 appliances have the following ports:

  • RS232 serial Console Port.
  • 10/100Base-T copper Ethernet Port (RJ45), also called the LOM port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the Citrix SWG software.
  • Two 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet Management Ports (RJ45), numbered 0/1and 0/2 from left to right. These ports are used to connect directly to the appliancefor system administration functions.
  • Network Ports, sixteen 10G SFP+ ports ( 16x10G SFP+).

Note: The 10G SFP+ ports on these appliances support copper 1G SFP transceivers.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the SWG MPX 14020/14030/14040 appliance:

  • Two 240 GB removable solid-state drives (SSDs).

    These appliances are redundant array of independent disks (RAID) devices. In a RAID configuration, the same data is stored on multiple drives to improve performance, increase storage capacity, lower the risk of data loss, and provide fault tolerance.

    The two SSDs store the same data. If one fails and you replace it, the new SSD mirrors the other one.

  • Power switch, which turns power to the appliance on or off. Press the switch for lessthan two seconds to turn off the power.
  • Two power supplies, each rated at 1000 watts, 100-240 volts. Each power supply has an LED that indicates the status of the power supply, as described in http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-hardware-platforms/mpx/common-hardware-components.html.
  • Disable alarm button, which is functional only when the appliance has two powersupplies.

    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.

  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) Button, used at the request of Technical Support toinitiate a core dump. To press this red button, which is recessed to preventunintentional activation, use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object. The NMI Buttonis also available remotely over the network in the LOM GUI, in the Remote Controlmenu. For more information about the lights out management port of the appliance, see http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-hardware-platforms/mpx/netscaler-mpx-lights-out-management-port-lom.html.
