Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Answer
Since the optional on-board hardware security module (HSM) is not supported/available for the 1-CPU appliance, how is it possible to achieve FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliance?
FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliance is possible with the use of a third-party network-attached HSM.
The specifications for the 1-CPU hardware appliance show that only two 10GE ports are supported; is this correct?
Yes. While the 1-CPU appliance has four physical network ports, only two of them are active and it is not possible to re-enable the inactive ports.
If you require four network ports, then you need the dual CPU appliance.
Does the hardware appliance support the optical fiber network interfaces?
The NIC installed in the hardware appliance only supports copper network interfaces. Optical fiber is not supported.
How do I configure the Oracle X7-2 now that there is no VGA port?
You can connect to the X7-2 using any of following methods:
