The Installation Console is a local interface on the server that is used to establish a connection to the WAN/Internet, enter a unique Activation Code, and initiate the automated installation process.
The Console will step you through a number of questions and configuration settings for the server. You can use the Next and Back buttons to move through the configuration settings.
Note that on completing the final step of the Installation Console’s user interface, the automated installation process will begin. This will take several minutes or in some cases hours if the Internet connection is slow.
