Configure Initial Settings for the Appliance Edition

You can configure the RealPresence DMA Appliance Edition server(s) using the USB flash drive on which you saved the system settings you configured with the Network Configuration Utility. If you have not prepared the USB flash drive with the required settings, see Prepare the USB Flash Drive (Appliance Edition Only).

Procedure

  1. Power off the server.
    The server must be powered off before you insert the USB flash drive.
  2. Insert the USB flash drive into a USB port.
  3. Power on the server.
    After it boots, the server reads its network and system parameters from the USB flash drive and reboots at least one time.
  4. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620, wait for the front panel LCD to display DMA Ready.
    CAUTION: If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620 and the message DMA Installed displays on the LCD, the system software is installed but not configured. Make sure the USB flash drive is set to apply system parameters and inserted into a functioning USB port, then restart the server.
  5. Disconnect the USB flash drive from the server.
  6. Do one of the following, depending on the server you have:
    1. For Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620 systems, connect an Ethernet cable from the GB 1 Ethernet port of the server(s) to the enterprise network to be used for management or combined traffic.
    2. For Polycom Rack Server R220 or R230 systems, connect an Ethernet cable between the Port 0 Ethernet port of the server(s) to the enterprise network.
  7. On a client system with network access to the RealPresence DMA system, point your browser to the system's host name or IP address.
  8. Log in with username admin and password Polycom12#$.
