Connect all of your appliance network interfaces to the LAN, and connect your laptop to the LAN.  For appliance models 5010 and 7010, be sure to connect identical interfaces on each controller, i.e. if you use MGMT and DATA1, be sure that both MGMT and DATA1 on both controllers are connected. See the diagram below to locate the MGMT and DATA1 ports.




Perform the following steps to initially configure your appliance.

  • Connect your laptop to the appliance serial console using a serial cable.  For appliance models 5010 and 7010, use the supplied serial cable to connect to the serial port, identified by the wrench icon File:User:AlpaK/StorSimple_Appliance_QSG_Imported/image004.jpg
  • Open your terminal emulation software using the following settings: 115.2Kbps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity bits.  Press ENTER a few times until the ‘StorSimple (? for help) >’ prompt appears.
  • At the prompt, type ‘setup’ to configure the MGMT interface. This will show the current configuration of the management interface.




  • Enable the interface by typing ‘yes’.  Now supply the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address.




  • Verify the configuration summary presented to you.




  • Make a note of the URL presented in this screen for the next steps in configuration.
