First, inspect the new miner
1. Visually inspect the box when your miner package arrives. Look for signs of damage. If package is damaged, take photos of the package’s conditions before proceeding to open the package and inspect the miner. If miner is damaged as well, contact customer support immediately.
2. Inspect the miner for aesthetic damage. Look at the corners of the miner and check for dents and cracks. Look out for broken fan blades and cables. If you noticed a damage or defect, contact customer support immediately.
3. Assess miner’s heat sinks. View from miner’s front and rear fan to check whether there are loose heat sinks. If you found loose heat sinks, contact customer support immediately.
Know the precautions for use
1) PoE is not supported.
2) Only Ethernet network connection supported via a router or switch.
3) Use the miner in an environment between 5 to 35 degree Celsius.
4) Keep the miner’s surrounding humidity below 65%
5) Keep the miner free of dust and catkins to prevent corrosion and/or heat accumulation.
6) Supported browsers: Google Chrome and Firefox.
7) Power connector and PSU cord must be plugged tightly.

- To prevent the spread of virus in the firmware, which can cause damage to the ANTMINER S19 series, the setting function of “Secure Boot” has been switched on and the “Root Authority” function has been disabled.
- If the user fails to use the product in accordance with the given instructions, specifications, and conditions provided, or change the function setting without Bitmain's prior consent, Bitmain will not be liable for any damage arising therefrom.
(1-1) Caution: Wrong input voltage may probably cause server damaged
(1-2）Max condition: temperature 40°C, altitude 0m
(1-3) Two AC input wires, 10A per wire
(2-1）Including PSU size
(2-2) Including PSU weight
(3-1) When the server is used at an altitude from 900m to 2000m, the highest operating temperature decreases by 1℃ for every increase of 300m
2.Setting Up the Server
To set up the sever
The file IPReporter.zip is supported by Microsoft Windows only.
- Go to the following site: https://shop.bitmain.com/support.htm？pid=00720160906053730999PVD2K0vz0693
- Download the following file: IPReporter.zip.
- Extract the file.the default DHCP network protocol distributes IP addresses automatically.
- Right-click IPReporter.exe and run it as Administrator.
- Select one of the following options:
■ Shelf, Step, Position – suitable for farm servers to mark the location of the servers.
■ Default – suitable for home servers.
On the controller board, click the IP Report button. Hold it down until it beeps (about 5 seconds).
The IP address will be displayed in a window on your computer screen.
- In your web browser, enter the IP address provided.
- Proceed to login using root for both the username and password.
- In the Protocol section, you can assign a Static IP address (optional).
- Enter the IP address, Subnet mask, gateway and DNS Server.
- Click “Save”.
