To connect Transfer Appliance:
Connect the power cords to the power supply plugs on the back of Transfer Appliance and then to 110V power outlets.
Connect the monitor to the VGA port.
Connect the keyboard to a USB port using a USB cable.
Connect the network cables to Transfer Appliance. Depending on the type of network you are using:
- Connect the necessary number of Ethernet cables to the copper NIC (Ethernet) ports. The Ethernet ports operate at either 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps depending on the switch to which they are attached.
- For a 10 Gbps fiber network, connect each 10 Gbps fiber cable to the SFP+ connectors.
Plug the network cables into your network ports. Work with your network administration team to ensure you are connecting Transfer Appliance to the correct network ports.
Power on Transfer Appliance. On the monitor attached to the appliance, you will see the Transfer Appliance Console User Interface. This console shows startup messages followed by network connectivity details.
Transfer Appliance attempts to acquire an IP address through DHCP during startup and displays this IP address as a URL (like https://220.127.116.11) if it is successful.
If Transfer Appliance is successful in acquiring an IP address via DHCP, and your network administration team has created a DHCP reservation for it, note the URL, press the space bar to select OK, and press Return. Proceed to Configuring Transfer Appliance.
If Transfer Appliance cannot acquire an IP address via DHCP, or if you need to configure its IP address statically, follow these directions to manually configure its network settings. Work with your network administration team to get the necessary configuration details. After you have configured the IP address manually, proceed to Configuring Transfer Appliance.
Once you set up the Transfer Appliance, configure the appliance.
