The Initial Configuration wizard helps you set up the Command Center configuration for the first time after installing the Command Center. This wizard enhances the first time user experience by helping a new user get started with Command Center efficiently and effectively by setting up the one time configuration for adding a device.
A dashboard is provided in the home tab to provide information about the configured settings based on the module and its usage. The dashboard also provides an option to configure the settings instantly.
You can add devices by specifying the host names of the devices, the IP addresses of each device, a range of IP addresses, and NAT HA devices. If you have configured IPv6 feature on the NetScaler device, you can add the NetScaler device using the NetScaler IP addresses in IPv6 format. You can also add devices by importing the device names from a file. Note that when you specify a range, the first three octets of the low and high addresses must be the same. Command Center can discover only 254 devices in an IP address range.
To begin monitoring and managing Citrix devices, first add the device in the Command Center.
