Follow the racking guide from the below link to properly mount the Device.
Connect Private Cloud server to the network as shown below:
|ID||Service Port||Internal Port||IP Address||Protocol|
|1||2200||2200||192.168.x.x(local IP 1)||TCP|
|2||8443||443||192.168.x.x(local IP 1)||TCP|
|3||9443||443||192.168.x.x(local IP 2)||TCP|
Plug the power cords into power supply and power source. If it is a 2-4u chassis server, to provide redundancy, plug both power supplies into separate power sources. The system can operate with only one power connection, but there is no redundancy in this case.
To let Private Cloud operate properly in the network, following ports will be opened in Firewall settings.
|25||TCP||Private Cloud server||Mail Server(s)||SMTP services|
|2200||TCP||IDrive inc||Private Cloud server||Remote SSH login by IDrive support for troubleshooting.|
|8443||TCP||Clients||Private Cloud server||Backup traffic from internal and external workstations|
|9443||TCP||Web||Private Cloud server||Web Access for backup user accounts and admin|
|2812||TCP||Web||Private Cloud server||Remote and local monitoring of PC|
Turn on the power to the enclosure with the front panel power button. The Private Cloud server is ready to use.
