The AppNeta Private Cloud Server (PCS) is an AppNeta-supplied device that runs APM-Private Cloud software. The PCS must be ordered from AppnNeta and is shipped preconfigured based on information you provide using the AppNeta - Private Cloud Setup form.

Completing the PCS setup form

Prior to shipment of your PCS, contact AppNeta Support to create a case for your installation. You will receive an AppNeta - Private Cloud Setup form where you will specify configuration information about your system. The AppNeta Support team will apply this configuration to your PCS before it ships.

Installing the PCS

Once you receive your PCS, install it as follows:

  1. (Optional) Place the PCS in a server rack.
  2. Connect the PCS to power.
    • The PCS has redundant power supplies. Connect both to surge-protected power - ideally into separate circuits.
  3. Connect the PCS to your network using Port 1.
    • Port 1 is pre-configured as requested (normally for DHCP).
  4. Power it on.
  5. Access the PCS from a web browser using the Virtual Machine Hostname and Domain specified in the AppNeta - Private Cloud Setup form.
    • For example: https://my_vm_hostname.my_domain_name.com
  6. Log in using the Email address specified in the AppNeta - Private Cloud Setup form as the username.
    • Use “Superp@th” as the password. You should change the password once logged in.
  7. Go to APM-Private Cloud Configuration to configure APM-Private Cloud services.
