The following components are visible on the back panel of the SDX 14030 FIPS, SDX 14060 FIPS, and SDX 14080 FIPS appliances:

  • Two 240 GB or larger removable solid-state drives in a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) configuration.

    Note: These drives store the NetScaler software, and cannot be increased by users.

  • Two to six 300 GB or larger solid-state drives.

    Note: These drives are used to provision VPX instances. Contact NetScaler sales Support to purchase extra drives.

    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.
  • Two power supplies, each rated at 1000 watts, 100–240 volts. Each power supply has an LED that indicates the status of the power supply, see Common hardware components.
  • **Disable alarm button**. Which is functional only when the appliance has dual redundant, hot-swappable power supplies. Press this button to silence the power alarm when one of the two power supplies loses input power or when a power supply is malfunctioning.
  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button. 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 lights out management GUI, in the Remote Controlment. For more information, see Lights out management port of the NetScaler SDX appliance.
