Once the just:in linux appliance is installed and set up (power, network, video signals) correctly, it is possible to connect to the just:in linux server and to start with the initial setup. To achieve that, the following steps are required:
Check the IP-Address, which will be used for the communication between the just:in linux server and the macOS-based Just Control application.
Install Just Control on a macOS-based client system, which has access to the just:in linux appliance (via the network).
Establish the connection to the just:in linux appliance with the macOS-based Just Control client application.
Generally, the just:in linux appliance has multiple network connections. One is for communication purposes, such as interacting with Just Control and another one will be used for the storage system connection. To access the just:in linux server with the macOS-based Just Control application, the IP Address of the communication port is required (the “em1” Ethernet interface is normally used for that purpose).
Installation (Just Control)
The macOS based Just Control application can be found on the internal just:in linux RAID or by contacting the ToolsOnAir support team, by creating a support ticket.
If there is no Just Control disk image on the internal RAID, please create a ticket in the ToolsOnAir Support System.
Usage (Just Control)
Go to the macOS “Applications” folder and open Just Control application.Press the “Login” button to continue .
(keep the current username and leave the password field empty). Enter the IP Address of the just:in linux appliance and press the “Connect” buttonto start the Setup Wizard.
Choose “Configure device with the detected physical input(s)” and press the “Scan” button to display the available SDI or HDMI inputs.
