Switching on the Appliance
After you have installed the appliance in a rack and connected the cables, verify that the power cable is properly connected. After verifying the connections, you are ready to switch on the appliance.
To switch on the appliance
- Verify that the appliance is connected through a console or Ethernet port, so that you can configure the appliance after it is switched on.
- Press the ON/OFF toggle power switch on the appliance. The power button is at the rear of the SD-WAN 2100-SE appliance.
- On SD-WAN 2000-SE and 2100-SE appliances, verify that the LCD on the front panel is backlit and the start message appears.
Caution: Be aware of the location of the emergency power off (EPO) switch, so that if an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly remove power from the appliance.
