Configuring hardware appliance network parameters

After the hardware appliance boots up and you set your admin user password in the hardware console as described in Rack-mounting your hardware appliance and connecting power, use the following procedure to configure network parameters so your hardware appliance can connect to AWS.

To set a network address
  1. From the Home page, choose Configure Network and then press Enter. The Configure Network page appears. The Configure Network page shows IP and DNS information for each of the 4 network interfaces on the hardware appliance, and includes menu options to configure DHCP or Static addresses for each.

  2. For the em1 interface, do one of the following:

    • Choose DHCP and press Enter to use the IPv4 address assigned by your Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to your physical network port.

      Note this address for later use in the activation step.

    • Choose Static and press Enter to configure a static IPv4 address.

      Enter a valid IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS server address for the em1 network interface.

      When finished, choose Save and then press Enter to save the configuration.

    Note

    You can use this procedure to configure other network interfaces in addition to em1 for redundancy. If you configure other interfaces, they must provide the same always-on connection to the AWS endpoints listed in the requirements.

To log out of the hardware console
  1. Choose Back and press Enter to return to the Home page.

  2. Choose Logout and press Enter to return to the Welcome page.
