Unpack the AppEazy System

1. Verify that you have unpacked all of the components of the AppEazy System.

  • AppEazy System
  • System Information Sheet
  • Power Cord
  • Network Cable

2. Situate the AppEazy System in a Suitable Area

A climate controlled location with good ventilation is required. Your AppEazy System can be mounted on a server rack by attaching standard sliding rails to the side of the AppEazy System. Feet have been included on the bottom of the AppEazy System should you wish to set it on a flat surface.

Connecting Cables

Power Cable

Connect the provided power cord into the back of the AppEazy System. Please plug this power cord into one of the following tools:

UPS Power Supply

UPS Power Supplies are able to prevent the AppEazy System from losing power during brief power outages. The AppEazy System supports the USB connection from most APC branded UPS power supplies, and will shut down automatically when the battery is depleted.

Surge Protector

If a UPS Power Supply is not available, the AppEazy System should be plugged into a surge protected power strip to protect it against possible electrical damage.

Network Cable

Connect the provided network cable into the back of the AppEazy System and connect the opposite end into your network switch, hub, or router. The following diagram may assist with understanding how the AppEazy System is connected to your network.

Starting the AppEazy System
If the AppEazy System did not start automatically when you connected the power cord, then flip the power switch on the back of the system to the on position.

Generally, there are two power switches on the system.
The first power switch is under the power supply on the back of the system. Verify this in the I position and the Power LED is glowing green.
The second power switch is on the opposite side of the system and is a rocking style toggle power switch. This requires pressure to be applied to the I position for 5 or more seconds until which the system will power on or off (depending on the state that it is in).
Upon successful power up, the fans will start spinning and go through a self-check at full-speed. The system will also beep once or twice, which is intended and for diagnostic purposes.
