First boot procedure

The first boot procedure for an eLux device in initial state, after a factory reset or after a Recovery installation, is processed as follows:

  1. Scan BIOS

  2. Make a DHCP server request

    To enable the device to connect to the Scout Server, either DHCP or DNS must be configured. For further information, see Self-registration of devices in the Scout guide.

  3. Start the eLux operating system

If either DHCP or DNS has been configured for the Scout Server, the device is automatically registered in the Scout infrastructure and receives a new configuration.

If a device cannot retrieve the IP address of the Scout Server, the First configuration opens and leads you through the first configuration.
