This method is often referred to as the "console bootstrap option" by technical support. Once again, this is for either a new or fresh install of the SSL Visibility Appliance appliance. If all these previously mentioned factors are in place, you will be able to take advantage of the bootstrap to configure the user name and IP address of the SSL Visibility Appliance.
To add the IP address via console on a fresh install or newly factory installed appliance, reboot the appliance while connected. After the box completes rebooting you will see the following and be prompted be with a login:
For the user name and password use bootstrap.
Next, configure the master key.
After the key generation, add a user.
Note: manage-pki manage-appliance manage-policy audit ensures that the admin role has the correct priveleges. Enter user add ? for more detailed information.
After the user is created, you will log out and then log back in with the newly created user. You will not be able to use the bootstrap user and password until the box is factory reset.
You will now be able to add the network configuration to the SSL Visibility Appliance.
After the SSL Visibility Appliance completes rebooting, you should be able to log into it via HTTPS, using the user name and password you created.
