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://22.214.171.124) 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.
