Switching on the Appliance

May 09, 2018

After you have installed the appliance in a rack and connected the cables, verify that the power cable is properly connected. If you have installed a second power supply, make sure the second cable is connected to an outlet for a different circuit than the first. After verifying the connections, you are ready to switch on the appliance.

To switch on the appliance

  1. Verify that the appliance is connected through a console or Ethernet port. This will ensure that you can configure the appliance after it is switched on.
  2. Depending on the appliance, press the ON/OFF toggle power switch or the power button to switch on the appliance.

Connecting the Appliance to the Network

Connect the interfaces on the appliance to the network ports on the appropriate switches by using Ethernet/fiber optic cables.


Connecting multiple network ports to the same switch or VLAN can result in a network loop.
