How to: Setup the initial IP address for Cisco NSS322

When plugging in the Cisco Smart Storage for the first time, setting up the IP Address can be a bit tricky and the setup CD isn’t quite plain and simple. So to setup the IP address manually plug in a monitor and a keyboard to the device and once the login process comes up, use the default username and password i.e. admin/admin.

Once you log in, type the following to set the IP Address:

ifconfig eth0 netmask up
ifconfig eth0

You should see the IP address configured and all there is now to do is enter the address in your browser and access the web interface of the device.
