Setting up the Appliance Hardware

To set up your NetScaler SD-WAN Appliance hardware, do the following:

  1. Set up the chassis.

    NetScaler SD-WAN Appliances can be installed in a standard rack. For desktop installation, place the chassis on a flat surface. Make sure that there is a minimum of two inches of clearance at the sides and back of the appliance, for proper ventilation.

  2. Connect the Power.

    1. Make sure the power switch is set to Off.
    2. Plug the power cord into the appliance and an AC outlet.
    3. Press the power button located on the front of the appliance.
  3. Connect the appliance Management Port to a personal computer.

    You will need to connect the appliance to a PC in preparation for completing the next procedure, setting the Management IP Address for the appliance.

    Note

    Before you connect the appliance, make sure the Ethernet port is enabled on the PC. Use an Ethernet cable to connect the SD-WAN Appliance Management Port to the default Ethernet port on a personal computer.

SD-WAN VPX-SE Management Port

The SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Appliance is a Virtual Machine, so there is no physical Management Port. However, if you did not configure the Management IP Address for the SD-WAN VPX-SE when you created the VPX Virtual Machine, you will need to do so now, as outlined in the section, Configuring the Management IP Address for the SD-WAN VPX-SE.
