  • 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), also called Management ports, numbered 0/1 and 0/2 from left to right. These ports are used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
  • Network Ports, four 40G QSFP+, eight 10G SFP+ ports.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the SWG MPX 14xxx appliance:

  • Two 300 GB removable solid-state drives. These appliances have a 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.
  • Power switch, which turns the power to the appliance on or off. Press the switch for less than two seconds to turn off the power.
  • Two power supplies, each power supply is 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. This button is functional only when the appliance has two power supplies. 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 that is used at the request of Technical Support to initiate a core dump. To press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation, use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object. The NMI Button is also available remotely over the network in the LOM GUI, in the Remote Control menu.
