Connecting the Iomega StorCenter ix2-200

Initial Setup

If you have purchased more than one Iomega StorCenter ix2-200, complete all steps on one device before setting up additional devices.

  1. Use the included network cable to connect the device to a network hub, switch or directly to a computer.
  2. Connect the included power cord to the back of the device and a power socket or Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).
  3. Your Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 should power on automatically.
  4. Start your computer, wait for the operating system to load, and then insert the CD.
  5. For best results, use a computer that is connected to the same router, hub, or switch as the device.

    If the software doesn't run automatically, double click on the CD icon, then double-click the Start icon.

  6. Install the Iomega Storage Manager software.

    Once the installation completes, the Iomega Storage Manager icon will appear in the System Tray (Windows) or Menu Bar (Mac). The Iomega Storage Manager will automatically scan your network and connect to available Shares.

    If you receive a message from your operating system's firewall alerting you of network activity, be sure to unblock communications.

    Mac Users: Shares on the Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 will mount and appear on the Mac Desktop.

    PC Users: Shares on the Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 will automatically be assigned a drive letter and will be available in the Network Drives section under My Computer.
