Bypass first time setup

Can’t believe CP did this. When doing remote Lights Out setups, the Mgmt port is configured to Appliances make you use WebUI to configure GAIA/Splat for the first time. But what if you are not on the directly connected net and its a LOM setup? How to you get to if its physically located in Ghana or somewhere?

So how do you directly connect. These guys are brilliant. Thanks.


touch /opt/spwm/conf/wizard_accepted

touch /opt/spwm/conf/wizard_post_install.accepted

when done

rm /opt/spwm/conf/wizard_accepted
rm /opt/spwm/conf/wizard_post_install.accepted

GAIA (sk71000)

touch /etc/.wizard_accepted

    Hi Michael,

    did you tested this? After touch… a reboot is neccessary? Do we have access to cpconfig right away?

Life Stories from Dreez

These are stories from my travels. Generally I like to write stories about local people that I meet and also brag about living the retirement dream with my #1 wife Gaby. She is also my only wife.
