System ‘Boot Wizard’


The Boot Wizard is automatically started during the installation process and must be completed during the IP Fabric virtual server deployment before the image installation begins. The Boot Wizard introduces the configuration of basic network parameters, including:

  • IP Fabric’s IP address and subnet
  • Time Zone
  • NTP servers
  • DNS servers
  • Proxy server

Suppose some initial parameters need to be modified after the installation is complete. In that case, the IP Fabric administrator may restart the Boot Wizard by running nimpee-net-config from the CLI as osadmin.


To see more command options, login and run nimpee-net-config -h.

osadmin@ipfabric:~# nimpee-net-config -h
IP Fabric network configuration wizard.
Usage: nimpee-net-config [-a] [-n] [-p] [-s] [-t] [-b] [-h]
    -a  configure all services (network, proxy, SSL cert., osadmin user)
    -n  network
    -p  proxy
    -s  SSL certificates (web)
    -t  osadmin troubleshooting user
    -b  used for start during boot
    -h  displays basic help

This script is started automatically if "firstrun" parameter is set to "yes" in /opt/nimpee/conf.d/sys-nimpee.conf
or user "osadmin" enables it using "nimpee-net-wizard" script.

Run Full Boot Wizard

To rerun the full Boot Wizard as described in First Boot Wizard:

  • Run nimpee-net-config -a
  • Edit /opt/nimpee/conf.d/sys-nimpee.conf, change firstrun="yes", and reboot.
    osadmin@ipfabric:~$ grep firstrun /opt/nimpee/conf.d/sys-nimpee.conf
