Setting Up the Controller for the First Time

Note: Before continuing, make sure that you have already set up the controller on the network as described in the Getting Started Guide or Quick Setup Guide for your controller platform.

For information on how to set up the controller for the first time, including instructions for running and completing the controller's Setup Wizard, see the Getting Started Guide or Quick Setup Guide for your controller platform.

Note: While deploying vSZ, iSCSI must be used for block storage and make the hosts see everything as Direct-attached storage (DAS) for real-time database access/synchronisation as it requires lower latency and a high number of r/w transactions. Due to higher r/w latency, SAN and NAS might not be suitable for vSZ deployment.

You can deploy vSZ and vDP via vCenter 6.5 on ESXi. Some of the new features (for example, location based services, rogue AP detection, force DHCP, and others) that this guide describes may not be visible on the controller web interface if the AP firmware deployed to the zone you are configuring is earlier than this release. To ensure that you can view and configure all new features that are available in this release, Ruckus recommends upgrading the AP firmware to the latest version.
