ISO Installation Guide
The aim of this guide is to provide assistance with the installation of jetNEXUS ALB-X appliance on your own hardware.
Download and create CD-ROM
You can use your default CD burner application to burn the ISO image to a CD-ROM or USB.
Note the hard disk will be completely wiped and reformatted as part of the install process.
|CPU||2 Core||4 Core||12 Core|
|Disk Space||80GB (SDA)||120GB SSD (SDA)||120GB SSD (SDA)|
|Network Ports||2 Intel/Broadcom||2-4 Intel/Broadcom||2-8 Intel/Broadcom|
Boot your server hardware from the newly created CD-ROM
The server will boot to the edgeNEXUS install screen
Type “install” if you are using a CD-ROM/Virual CD-ROM and hit enter as per the on screen instructions.
Type “install-usb” if you are using a USB drive and hit enter as per the on screen instructions.
The install process will start, giving you time for a coffee break.
You should then see and status bar indicating progress
Once the CD-ROM is ejected, the server hardware will reboot.
Congratulations you now have a jetNEXUS ALB-X load balancer.
Please refer Basic Configuration to assign an IP Address and log on to the GUI.
Please ensure you have plugged in a live Ethernet cable into eth0. On
first boot the jetNEXUS ALB-X will try and obtain an IP address using
DHCP. If there is no DHCP server present it will boot with it’s default
IP address of 192.168.100.100. On subsequent boots DHCP is disabled.
You now have two ways to setup your jetNEXUS ALB-X.
Default password = jetnexus
First Boot – Manual Network Details
- Upon first boot you will have two options to proceed futher
- Press 1 to enter networking details manually
- You can then enter the following details
- IP Address
- Subnet Mask
- DNS Server
First Boot – DHCP successful
- Press 2 to configure the network settings automatically via DHCP
- If contact is successful then your machine will be assign the following details
- IP Address
- Subnet Mask
- Default Gateway
- DNS Sever
- These changes will survice after reboot and dont need to be configured again on the GUI
First Boot – DHCP Fails
- If you do not have a DHCP server or the connection fails then the IP Adress 192.168.100.100 will be assigned
- The IP address will increase by 1 untill a free address is found
- If 192.168.100.100 is already assigned to the network then it will assign 192.168.100.101 and so on
Change the Management IP Address
Change the Subnet Mask for eth0
Assign a Default Gateway
Check the Default Gateway has been added
You should now be able to access the Graphical User Interface (GUI)
