Create the USB Key

In order to configure an Endian 4i Edge 515/313/112 appliance using the provisioning, it is necessary to have an USB key, formatted with a FAT filesystem and containing the configuration file (config_xxxx.txt) you downloaded from the Switchboard through the Connect App

Note

If you're going to provisioning an appliance which is already configured, and not set at "factory default", you need to add a file named "force_provisioning" in the usb key, without any extention.
That file can be created using, e.g., Linux's utility touch. Under Windows, Click on "Start", then paste the following string in the "search program and files" field, and press "Return" (replace "X" with the letter assigned to your USB key)
cmd /C "cd. > X:/force_provisioning"

To verify that the configuration of the 4i Edge Appliance has been successfully completed, open the text file "provisioning.log" you'll find on the USB key. Note that you can do this even on your workstation!

At the bottom of that log file appear the following two strings:

2013-08-06 12:50:03,678 - provisioning-install[2252] - INFO - Configuration done
2013-08-06 12:50:03,726 - provisioning-install[2252] - INFO – Halt

These two lines, especially the string "Configuration done" are the sign of a successful configuration.
