Appliance access and licensing settings depend on your appliance platform:
  • Hardware
    : A pre-licensed physical appliance. For configuration information, see Deploy the Hardware Appliance.
  • VMware OVA
    : Provided by your account representative with a link to download the OVA to your vCenter location so that you can create a VM. You also receive a license to activate the instance.
  • AWS AMI
    : Provided by your account representative with permission and an AMI number so that you can create an instance within your AWS account. You also receive a license to activate the instance.
  • Azure VHD
    : Provided by your account representative with a link to download the VHD to your Azure location so that you can create a VM. You also receive a license to activate the instance.
Network context configuration:
  • Hardware
    : Use the LCD display on the left side of the front panel of the appliance. See Configure Network Connections for the Appliance.
  • VMware VM
    : After you power on your VM, use the VMware Console to access the same controls as are provided by the LCD on a hardware device.
For clustered implementations, the blue globe icon on the title of a configuration panel signifies that the configuration is replicated to all cluster members. Configure changes to settings with the blue globe icon on the
primary
site of your cluster; they are not configurable on
secondary
sites.
