Algo 8180 Provisioning With ACF
This material is work-in-progress ...
Do not follow instructions here until this notice is removed.
1. Install provisioning server
First, install the provisioning server according to the instructions at this page.
2. Install firmware package
The latest supported firmware is included in a package:
apk add acf-provisioning-algo
3. Configure init.cfg
The Algo will override ALL parameters when it is provisioned. If parameters are not provided by the provisioning server, they will be reset to default. Since not all parameters are included in the provisioning database, they must be configured statically in /var/www/provisioning/htdocs/Algo/init.cfg. You can use /var/www/provisioning/htdocs/Algo/init.cfg.sample as a starting point. You will probably need to modify the network configuration and provisioning server IP.
cp /var/www/provisioning/htdocs/Algo/init.cfg.sample /var/www/provisioning/htdocs/Algo/init.cfg
4. Configure the Algo 8180 to connect to the provisioning server
Unfortunately, the DHCP option 66 does not seem to work in our testing. So, you must manually configure the Algo to connect to the provisioning server. Once you get the Algo device connected to the network, follow these steps:
- MENU Advanced Settings > Provisioning
- Provisioning Mode: Enabled
- Server Method: Static
- Static Server: Enter the IP address or FQDN of the provisioning server
- Download Method: HTTP
- Config Download Path: Algo
- Firmware Download Path: Algo
