Antsle Two Setup
Congratulations! You're a proud owner of the Antsle! 🎉
Setup is easy! Actually, it’s super easy. Here’s our famous five minute installation process:
Important: Make sure you connect your LAN cable to the correct LAN port on the backside of the Antsle, as labeled.
Connect the other end of the LAN cable to a free LAN port on your router.
Power on your Antsle and allow a few minutes for the boot process.
Login with Default Credentials below.
Trouble getting the login screen? Try adding port 3000 to the URL: Use http://.local:3000, or if you know the IP address: http://x.x.x.x:3000
You should now be presented with the on-boarding screen:
Choose "New Antsle hardware" and follow the instructions.
When prompted for your e-mail address enter the address you used to purchase your Antsle so that we can verify your order. If you need to use another email address for some reason, please contact support.
You will receive an email with a list of Antsle serial numbers associated to your email. Enter the token for your serial number which is printed on the delivery note which came with the antsle.
You'll be asked to register your device with antHill. antHill is a central account, hosted on Antsle which is used to link ownership of your physical servers to a single profile. antHill allows you to restore backups between servers and also is where you manage your subscriptions, or can get support.
After you finish the onboarding process, wait a few minutes for antMan to restart, login again and you should now see the antMan dashboard:
Use antMan™ (antlet manager) to create a few antlets.
When your Antsle is on, it will periodically send a "heartbeat" signal to our servers so that you can see it in antHill. (You can turn this feature off in antMan Services once the Antsle is activated, if you so choose).
Go do great things with your private cloud! 🙂
It's also a best practice to configure your IPMI. See below.
The IPMI port gives you remote access to the Antsle's console and the ability to power up/down the Antsle remotely. Please change the username and password as described below. Keep these credentials in a safe place as it cannot be recovered.
The default username/password is admin/password.
The single ethernet port above the two USB ports is a dedicated IPMI port. The IPMI is configured in the BIOS setup of the Antsle.
Connect a keyboard and monitor and boot the Antsle (this is only required for the initial configuration). When the Antsle begins to boot you will see the Supermicro splash screen. Watch for a message that says 'Press
<del>to enter setup' - then hit
Arrow over to the IPMI menu item.
Select 'BMC network configuration' > 'Configuration Address source' > Static and set the static IP address information.
Hit F4 to Save and Exit
Now you can open a browser and go to http://x.x.x.x (the IP address you set in the bios). Go to 'Configuration' > 'Users' to change the password and users for access to the IPMI. For console access, go to 'Remote Control' > 'iKVM/HTML5' or 'Remote Control' > 'Console Redirection' > 'Launch Console'
You can ignore any messages asking to upgrade java.
