Setting up Your ix2 Network Storage
Setup with your ix2 Network Storage is easy. Remove it from the box, connect it to your network switch or
hub, and then power it up. Launch a web browser and enter the setup URL identified in the Quick Start
Guide. LenovoEMC Setup launches and displays a message that your ix2 is online and ready to use.
