When the appliance is securely mounted on the rack, determine which ports you should use. You are then ready to connect the cables. Ethernet cables and the optional console cable are connected first. Connect the power cable last.
Remove all jewelry and other metal objects that might come in contact with power sources or wires before installing or repairing the appliance. When you touch both a live power source or wire and ground, any metal objects can heat up rapidly, and may cause burns, set clothing on fire, or fuse the metal object to an exposed terminal.
Connecting multiple network ports to the same switch or VLAN can result in a network loop.
A SD-WAN appliance has one power supply, unless you have installed a second. A separate ground cable is not required, because the three-prong plug provides grounding. Provide power to the appliance by installing the power cord.
Connect the power cable to one of the inlet receptacles on the back of the appliance, and connect the other end of the power cable to a power outlet on the back panel of the appliance, next to the power supply.
The Citrix logo and the LCD on the front of the NetScaler SD-WAN illuminate after the appliance starts, and the LCD indicates the operational status of the appliance.
