You can install DDoS Hybrid Defender™ onto a dedicated system approved for the software. You must have assigned the management IP address on the LCD panel of the device, or with a hypervisor if you are using the Virtual Edition. This procedure is for installing a single, stand-alone DDoS Hybrid Defender system to protect against DDoS attacks. If you have two systems and want to install them for high availability, follow the steps described in Installing DDoS Hybrid Defender for High Availability.
Before you begin, make sure you have this information:
If setting up two systems for high availability, you need to perform initial setup on both systems.
If setting up two systems for high availability, you have to activate the license on both systems.
If setting up high availability, configure remote logging on the active device.
If setting up high availability, register with Silverline on the active device.
