AWN200 to AWN202 Sensor Replacement - Mirroring Deployment

Updated Mar 15, 2024

Replace an AWN200 Sensor with an AWN202 Sensor - mirroring

You can replace your AWN200 Sensor with an AWN202 Sensor in a mirroring deployment.

Requirements

Steps

  1. Install the AWN202 Sensor in the applicable rack location. If needed, use the provided rack ears.

  2. On the AWN200 Sensor, disconnect the CAT6 RJ45 Ethernet cables from ports 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and then, on the AWN202 Sensor connect them to ports 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, respectively.

    Tip: For port information, see AWN200 Sensor components and AWN202 Sensor components.

  3. On the AWN200 Sensor, disconnect the CAT6 RJ45 Ethernet cable from the management port, and then, on the AWN202 Sensor, connect it to the management port.

  4. Using the AC30 US power cord, connect the power connector on the sensor to a power source.

  5. Turn on the sensor power.

    The power LED is green when the sensor power is on.

Step 2: Install the hardware

  1. Install the sensor in the applicable rack location.

    If needed, use the provided rack ears.

  2. Using a CAT6 RJ45 Ethernet cable, connect the management port on the sensor to the outbound connection on your network switch.

  3. Using the AC30 US power cord, connect the power connector on the sensor to a power source.

    Note: Arctic Wolf recommends that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to prevent interruptions from power surges.

  4. Turn on the sensor power.

    The power LED is green when the sensor power is on.

  5. Ping the management IP address that you provided to Arctic Wolf to verify network connectivity.

  6. Wait 15 minutes, and then make sure the status LED is green. This shows that the sensor is connected to the Arctic Wolf monitoring service.

  7. If you cannot successfully complete these steps, contact your CST at security@arcticwolf.com.

  8. Use the return label to ship the old sensor back to Arctic Wolf.

  9. Contact Arctic Wolf to make sure that sensor connectivity, flows, and logs are functioning correctly. Use the ticket for the sensor replacement.
