This is the recipe that I use when configuring out-of-box systems for the first time.

By default, WAN1 is a dhcp insterface. So I set WAN1 to allow HTTPS management, then plug WAN1 into the LAN that I have handy so I can web-manage.

config system interface
edit wan1
set allow https ssh ping

If you want HA, you have to disable the switch-controller first, so do that now.

config system global
set switch-controller disable

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
