Turning on the Model MPX Appliance

Jul 15, 2013
After you install the NetScaler Gateway appliance in a rack and connect the cables, you are ready to turn on the appliance. Before you turn on the appliance, verify that you connected the power cable properly. When two power supplies are present, make sure the second cable is connected to an outlet for a different circuit than the first.
  1. Verify that you are connected to the appliance through a console or Ethernet port. This step will ensure that you can configure the appliance after you turn it on.
  2. Press the ON/OFF toggle power switch on the back panel of the appliance, as shown in the following figure.

    Caution: Be aware of the location of the emergency power off (EPO) switch so that you can quickly turn off power to the appliance if an electrical accident occurs. (The EPO can be located anywhere, including on the rack, the data center, or the lab.)
