Connection with Vess R2600:
Each Vess R2600 controller has one RJ-45 1G Ethernet Management Port used for device management via web-based GUI. After establishing the IP settings for the Vess R2600, you will use WebPAM PROe, the management GUI for Vess R2600, to setup the system for use as backend storage with the FileCruiser Server 1U4.
To establish the management path:
- Attach one end of an Ethernet cable to the network connector or standard NIC in the Host PC
Attach the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the ports on the standard network switch.
- Attach one end of an Ethernet cable to one of the ports on the standard network switch.
Attach the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Management Port on the Vess R2600 subsystem.
The FileCruiser Server 1U4 connects to FileCruiser clients with 1G Ethernet connections. In addition, all management and administration of the FileCruiser system is conducted through this interface.
The Vess R2600iD is used as the backend storage system for FileCruiser. This is where the FileCruiser client data is stored. The 1G network also provides connection from FileCruiser to FileCruiser clients. Both the Vess and FileCruiser systems must be connected to the same 1G Ethernet network for FileCruiser to function and service FileCruiser clients.
The management network path represented by the red colored cable in the illustration abaove, is used to configure the Vess R2600iD for operation with the FileCruiser Server1U4. Once configured, this port is not used for ongoing operations, but it is a good idea to keep the cabling in place for future administration of the Vess R2600iD.
