While working through the wizard, the appliance may need to reboot.

Wizard Instructions

  1. Administrator Password– the default local administrator password should be changed as a security precaution because it is public knowledge. However, once the appliance has been joined to the internal domain, domain administrator credentials must be used to access features.
    • User name – the Administrator Password feature only changes the local administrator password, which must be the logged in account.
    • Password – enter and confirm a new password. Complexity requirements are noted on the screen.
  2. Date and Time – use onscreen controls to enter the date, time, and time zone, then configure for daylight savings if necessary.
  3. Network Interfaces – if DHCP was used initially to assign an IP address, select the LAN network adapter to set a static address. A static address includes these settings:
    • Internet Protocol (IP) address
    • Subnet mask
    • Gateway address
    • Automatic or preferred DNS server
  4. Hostname and Domain

    Note: Fields will be autopopulated with available settings if the appliance was joined to the domain previously; the reboot will be skipped if they are left unchanged.

    • Hostname– specify a name for the appliance; it must be unique.
      For example: Celestix E
    • Domain– enter the name for the internal domain the appliance will join.
      For example: example.com.
    • Username– enter an account with domain administrator access to AD (domain\username).
      For example: example\adminuser
    • Password– provide the account password.
  1. Reboot
    • Click Nextto apply changes and reboot the appliance.Note: Domain administrator credentials (example: example\adminuser) will be required to access the web UI after the reboot.
  1. Alerts Email– optional; general appliance notifications can be sent to designated recipients through a connection to a network SMTP server.
    1. Select Enable alert email.
    2. Complete the following:
      • Alert Message settings
        • To – indicate one or multiple recipients. For multiple addresses, use a comma to separate addresses.
        • From – enter an address that recipients will recognize.
        • Select check boxes for the alert levels that will generate email.
          • Send error alert email– includes alert types where the level is set to Error.
          • Send warning alert email– includes alert types where the level is set to Warning.
          • Send informational alert email– includes types where the level is set to Information.
      • SMTP server settings
        • Name – indicate the network SMTP server name or IP address.
        • Port – enter the number used for SMTP communication.
        • Use SSL/TLS – select to require encryption.
        • SMTP settings – select and provide credentials with permission to access the SMTP server.
        • Send Test Message – create a test email using the settings entered above.Note: The alert email function will indicate whether a test email was sent. If the test email is not received after the alert email feature indicates that one was sent, the error is most likely due to SMTP server settings. An error will occur if the SMTP service is not running or if the appliance is not correctly configured to see the SMTP server. Confirm the SMTP server and network settings before trying to test again.
    3. Click Save to add configuration.
