The Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response setup wizard guides you through the mandatory configuration steps of an all-in-one or management platform device. This set up includes uploading the product license and creating the first administrator account so that you can log on to the EDR appliance console.
You run the setup wizard after you bootstrap the device. During bootstrap, you assign a static IP address to the management port of the appliance. This IP address is required to access the setup wizard and later, the EDR appliance console.
The console admin account in the bootstrap is independent from the administrative account in the setup wizard.
The appliance may take a few minutes to boot and start the required services before the setup wizard can be run. If the IP address of the management port is not responsive, wait a few minutes before attempting to connect and proceeding with the setup wizard.
To run the setup wizard
On a computer that is accessible to the appliance, open a window on a supported browser and type: https://<IP address of the management port>.
For example, if you assigned the static IP address 10.20.20.20 to the appliance during bootstrap, type https://10.20.20.20.
You must use the HTTPS protocol when you type the address of the setup wizard. The HTTPS protocol is required.
If the browser displays an untrusted certificate or untrusted connection warning, choose to proceed, and add an exception, if required.
The Symantec EDR web interface initially includes a self-signed certificate that can be changed to use a customer-generated certificate after the initial setup.
