network port 1 and the second LED indicates the status of network port 2. The remaining
two LEDs are reserved for future use. The LED changes color to indicate the port status,
- The appliance is turned off
- The system is starting up
- No network link is available
- A network link is established
- Through the LCD, you can view the current settings, manually configure the network
settings, run the ping network utility, and restart or shutdown the appliance.

|Home Screen||Main Menu|
- One RS-232 serial port to connect a console device.
- One power port to connect the EDA 1100 to an AC power source.
- Two USB 3.0 ports to connect a keyboard.
- One DisplayPort to connect an external display.
- Four 10/100/1000 BASE-T network ports. Port 1 is the primary management port and port 2
is the primary monitor port.
Note: Ports 3 and 4 are reserved for future use and are disabled.
- Attach the four self-adhesive bumpers included in the package to the bottom of the appliance.
- Place the appliance on a flat surface near a suitable power source. To prevent overheating, leave at least 2 inches (5 cm) of clearance around the sides and top of the appliance. Optionally, you can mount the appliance to a wall.
- Connect an Ethernet cable from network port 1 on the back of the appliance to your management network.
- Connect an Ethernet cable from network port 2 on the back of the appliance to the mirror port on your switch.
- Connect the power cord to the power port on the back of the EDA 1100, and then plug the cord into a power outlet. The appliance powers on automatically.
DHCP is enabled by default on the EDA 1100. When you power on the appliance, interface 1 attempts to acquire an IP address through DHCP. The IP address appears on the home screen of the LCD.
If your network does not support DHCP, you can configure a static IP address through the LCD menu on the front panel. If an IP address has not been configured, the home screen displays IP:(None).
Complete the following steps to manually configure an IP address from the front panel.
- Press the checkmark button on the front of the EDA 1100.
- Press the down arrow button to select Network menu, and then press the checkmark button.
- Press the down arrow to select Set static IP, and then press the checkmark button.
- Press the left or right arrows to select the first digit to change, and then press the up or down arrows to change the digit to the desired number. Repeat this step for each digit you need to change. After you configure the desired IP address, press the checkmark button.
- On the Network mask screen, press the left or right arrows to select the first digit to change, and then press the up or down arrows to change the digit to the desired number. Repeat this step for each digit you need to change. After you configure the desired network mask, press the checkmark button.
- On the Default gateway screen, press the left or right arrows to select the first digit to change, and then press the up or down arrows to change the digit to the desired number. Repeat this step for each digit you need to change. After you configure the desired default gateway, press the checkmark button.
- Confirm your modified network settings on the Settings saved screen, and then press any button to return to the Network Menu.
- Press the down arrow and scroll to Set DNS servers, and then press the checkmark button.
- Press the left or right arrows on the DNS1 screen to select the first digit to change, and then press the up or down arrows to change the digit to the desired number. Repeat this step for each digit you need to change, and then press the checkmark button to continue to the DNS2 screen.
- Optional: Repeat step 9 to configure a second DNS server.
- Confirm the DNS settings on the Settings saved screen, confirm the DNS settings, and then press any button to return to the Network Menu.
After you configure an IP address for the Discover appliance, you can log into the Discover Admin UI through the following URL: https://<discover_ip_address>/admin and complete the following recommended procedures.
Complete the following steps to apply a product key supplied by ExtraHop Support.
If you do not have a product key, contact email@example.com.
- In your browser, type the IP address of the ExtraHop appliance (https://<extrahop_ip_address>/admin).
- Review the license agreement, select I Agree, and then click Submit.
- On the login screen, type setup for the username.
For the password, select from the following options:
- For a physical appliance, type the service tag number found on the
pullout tab on the front of the appliance.
Note: The serial number for the EDA 1100 is located on the bottom of the appliance, and displayed in the Appliance info section of the LCD menu.
- For a virtual appliance, type default.
- For a physical appliance, type the service tag number found on the pullout tab on the front of the appliance.
- Click Log In.
- In the System Settings section, click License.

The default time server setting is pool.ntp.org. If you want to maintain the default setting, skip this procedure and go to the next section.
- In the System Settings section, click System Time.
- Click Configure Time.
- Click the Time Zone drop-down list and select a time zone.
- Click Save and Continue.
- Type the IP address or FQDN for the time servers in the Time Server fields.

You must configure an email server and sender before the ExtraHop appliance can send notifications about system alerts by email.
- In the Network Settings section, click Notifications.
- Click Email Server and Sender.
On the Email Settings page, enter the following
SMTP Server: The IP address for the outgoing SMTP mail server.
Note: The SMTP server should be the FQDN or IP address of an outgoing mail server that is accessible from the ExtraHop management network. If the DNS server is set, then the SMTP server can be a FQDN, otherwise it needs to be an IP address.
Sender Address: The email address for the notification sender.
Report Sender Address: The email address for the report sender.
- Click Save.
Email notification groups are assigned to alerts to designate who should receive an email when that alert becomes active. Although you can specify individual email addresses to receive emails for alerts, email groups are the most effective way to manage your alert recipient list.
- In the Network Settings section, click Notifications.
- Click Email Notification Groups.
- Click Add Group.
In the Group Info section, enter the following
Name: The name of the email group.
System Health Notifications: Select this checkbox if you want to send system storage alerts to the email group. These alerts are sent under the following conditions:
- A virtual disk is in a degraded state.
- A physical disk is in a degraded state.
- A physical disk has an increasing error count.
- A necessary role is missing, such a firmware, datastore, or packet capture.
- In the Email Addresses text box, type the recipient email addresses for the team members that you want to receive the alert emails for this group. Email addresses can be entered one per line or separated by a comma, semicolon, or space. Email addresses are checked only for [name]@[company].[domain] format validation. There must be at least one email address in this text box for the group to be valid.
- Click Save.
