3 Install the slide rails and rack-mount the Sensor

McAfee recommends rack-mounting your Sensor. For maintenance purposes, you must have access to the front and rear of the Sensor.

Before you mount the Sensor on the rack, make sure that the power is off. Remove the power cable and all network interface cables from the Sensor.

Due to the weight of the appliance, McAfee recommends that two people place the chassis into the rail cabinet.

a

Disassemble the inner slide rail members from the cabinet sections.

a

Pull the inner member out until it comes to a lock position.

b

Depress the QD latch to fully disconnect the inner members.

4

b

Mount the inner members to the chassis unit.

a

Place each inner member on both sides of the chassis unit. Position the bottom mounting holes of the inner member with matching mounting holes on chassis unit.

b

Use screws to secure inner members in place. Apply to both sides of chassis unit.

c

Mount the slide cabinet sections to the rack.

a

Install the front end of each slide cabinet section to the rack using the slide tool-less features. The tool-less latch rotates when the bracket is pressed up against the rack rails.

b

Align, adjust, and attach the rear brackets to the rack rail.

5

d

Mount the chassis unit into the mounted cabinet sections.

a

Guide the chassis unit into the pre-installed cabinet sections. Allow the pre-installed inner members to slide into the outer members until they lock in place.

b

Depress the QD latch on both sides and continue to push the chassis unit in until fully closed.

e

Secure the chassis unit through the rack rails.

a

With the chassis unit in a fully closed position, secure using two truss head screws.

b

Drive the screws through the inner member flange and through the rack rails. The screws thread directly to the cabinet slide members. Tighten the screws.

4 Install the interface modules

You can purchase the following interface modules and insert them into the relevant slots on your

NS7x00 Sensor.

• 8-port SFP/SFP+ 1/10 Gigabit interface module

• 4-port RJ-45 10 Gbps/1 Gbps/100 Mbps with internal fail-open interface module

• 6-port RJ-45 10/100/1000 Mbps with internal fail-open interface module

• 4-port 10/1 GigE SM 8.5 micron with internal fail-open interface module

6

• 4-port 10/1 GigE MM 50 micron with internal fail-open interface module

• 4-port 10/1 GigE MM 62.5 micron with internal fail-open interface module

a

Remove the module from its protective packaging.

b

Hold the module using your thumb and forefinger and insert it into the modular bay.

c

Drive in the screws fixed on the sides of the module to attach it to the Sensor.

5 Connect the Management and Console ports

a

On the rear panel of the NS7x00 Sensors, plug a Category 5e Ethernet cable in the Management port (labeled Mgmt).

8 c

On the front panel of the NS7x00 Sensors, plug the DB9 Console cables into the Console port

(labeled Console).

d

Connect the other end of the Console port cable directly to a COM port of the PC or terminal server you are using to configure the Sensor (for example, a PC running correctly configured

Windows Hyperterminal software). You must directly connect to the console for initial configuration, you cannot configure the Sensor remotely.

Terminal servers are provided for console access.

The required settings for Hyperterminal are:

• Baud rate: 115200

• Number of Bits: 8

• Parity: None

Stop Bits: 1

Control Flow: None

e

Plug one end of the power cable into the power inlet and plug the other end into a power source.

The Sensor ships with standard US power and international cables.

The NS-series Sensor does not have a power switch. You can directly plug the power cable into a power source.

6 Connect the monitoring ports

This procedure describes how to connect cables to a Sensor that runs in in-line mode.

a

Plug the cable appropriate for use with your transceiver module into one of the monitoring ports labeled x (for example, 1).

b

Plug the cable appropriate for use with your transceiver module into one of the monitoring ports labeled y (for example, 2).

c

Connect the other end of each cable to the network devices that you want to monitor. For example, if you plan to monitor traffic between a switch and a router, connect the cable connected to 1 to the router and the one connected to 2 to the switch.

7 Install the Manager software

For detailed instructions, see the McAfee Network Security Platform Installation Guide.

You must have administrator rights on the target Windows Server to install the Manager software.

A MySQL database is included with the Manager and is installed (embedded) automatically on your target Windows Server during this process.
