Back panel

The following components are visible on the back panel of the 2100 PE (EE) appliance:

  • 240 GB and 480 GB removable solid-state drives that store the appliance’s software and user data.
  • Power switch, which switches power to the appliance on or off. Press the switch for five seconds to switch off the power.
  • Single power supply, rated at 450 watts, 100–240 volts. Each power supply has an LED indicating its status, as described below. A second power supply is available as an extra accessory (optional Field Replaceable Unit (FRU).

2100 PE has two disks, Drive Bay1 holds 240 GB SSD (boot disk) and Drive Bay2 holds 480 GB SSD. In a case of replacing the old boot disk with a new 240 GB SSD boot disk, it is required to remove both the 240 GB and 480 GB SSDs prior to plugging in the new 240 GB SSD in Bay1 and following it up with plugging back 480 GB SSD. This is required for the BIOS to refresh the boot order sequence to normal state and ensure it boots from the 240GB SSD (boot disk).


To use PE functionality, you need SD-WAN release 10.0 on the 2100 PE appliances and install PE licenses.
