The NetScaler MPX14000-40C appliances have the following ports:

  • RS232 serial Console Port.
  • 10/100Base-T copper Ethernet Port (RJ45), also called the LOM port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the NetScaler software.
  • Two 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet management ports (RJ45), also called Management ports, numbered 0/1 and 0/2 from left to right. These ports are used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
  • Network Ports: Sixteen 10G SFP+ ports.
  • USB port (reserved for a future release).

The following components are visible on the back panel of the MPX 14000-40C appliances:

  • Two 300 GB or larger removable solid-state drives in a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) devices. In a RAID configuration, the same data is stored on multiple drives to improve performance, increase storage capacity, lower the risk of data loss, and provide fault tolerance. The two SSDs store the same data. If one fails and you replace it, the new SSD mirrors the other one.

    Note: Drive densities might increase as components become EOL but its size is never smaller than the original.

  • Power switch, which turns power to the appliance on or off. Press the switch for less than two seconds to shut off the power. For more information, see Common Hardware Components
  • Two power supplies, each power supply is rated at 1000 watts, 100–240 volts. Each power supply has an LED that indicates the status of the power supply, as described Common hardware components.
  • Disable alarm button. This button is functional when the appliance has two power supplies. Press this button to stop the power alarm from sounding when one of the following conditions is true:
    • You have plugged the appliance into only one power outlet.
    • One power supply is malfunctioning and you want to continue operating the appliance until it is repaired.
  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) Button that is used at the request of Technical Support to initiate a core dump. To press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation, use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object. The NMI Button is also available remotely over the network in the LOM GUI, in the Remote Control menu.
