Switching on the Appliance

Jan 20, 2014
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.
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.
