Be aware that in configuring SNMPv3 there is the option of resetting both the Privacy and Authentication passwords
back to their default values. This option should only be used if necessary since if the default passwords are not known no
one will be able to access the SNMP administrator account
Initiate the software verification test feature by following the instructions for "Verifying the Software" in Section 4 of
the SAG.
Users should be aware that correct remote repository document pathnames for the receipt of workflow scanning jobs
should start with one '\' as opposed to the two '\'s shown in the SAG (e.g., page 140).
Users should be provided with appropriate training on how to use the device in a secure manner before being assigned
user accounts to access the device.
m. Before upgrading software on the device via the Manual/Automatic Customer Software Upgrade, please check for the
latest certified software versions. Otherwise, the machine may not remain in its evaluated configuration.
Users experiencing problems logging in to the device using the Web UI only on a particular web browser are advised to
switch to a different web browser.
The device should be installed in a standard office environment. Office personnel should be made aware of authorized
service calls (for example through appropriate signage) in order to discourage unauthorized physical attacks such as
attempts to remove the internal hard disk drive(s). Ensure that office personnel are made aware to pick up the outputs
of print and copy jobs in a timely manner.
Caution: The device allows an authenticated System Administrator to disable functions like Image Overwrite Security
that are necessary for secure operation. Periodically review the configuration of all installed machines in your
environment to verify that the proper evaluated configuration is maintained.

'Self Assigned Address' option is enabled (which is the default case), this secondary IPv4 address will not be visible to the
. The 'Self Assigned Address' option from the Web UI IP (Internet Protocol) page should be disabled unless either
APIPA is used or Apple Rendezvous/Bonjour support is required.
If IPv6 is disabled and then a software upgrade is performed by a Xerox Service Technician using an AltBoot, IPv6 will be
disabled even though both the Control Panel and Web UI show that IPv6 is enabled. IPv6 can be enabled again via the
Web UI by first disabling and then re-enabling it.
If use of the Embedded Device Security is desired, from the Web UI check that Embedded Device Security is enabled by
following the instructions under "McAfee Embedded Control" in Section 4 of the SAG. If the default Enhanced Security is
desired, select the Enhanced Security for the 'Security Level'; if the 'Integrity Control' option is desired, select Integrity
Control for the 'Security Level'. Do not select the Disable McAfee Secure Device 'Security Level' option.
