Bypass first time setup

Can’t believe CP did this. When doing remote Lights Out setups, the Mgmt port is configured to 192.168.1.1. 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 192.168.1.1 if its physically located in Ghana or somewhere?

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

    Hi Michael,

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

    Thanks.
