About this task

This scenario is common to many building networks. The NAE should only use DHCP without DNS if you have configured DHCP to always assign the same IP address after device resets and lease renewals. If this is not the case, use static IP addresses as described in Preparing NAE for a network without DHCP and without DNS support when the NAE uses a static IP address.

Procedure

  1. Attach the NAE to the network using an Ethernet patch cable.
  2. With your computer or commissioning laptop connected to the building network, start NCT. This tool listens for and shows the IP address information of the NAE as it comes online.
  3. Connect supply power to the NAE and wait for the NAE to complete initialization. The NCT indicates the current IP address of the network engine.
    The startup and initialization sequence may take up to 10 minutes to complete.
  4. Go to Installing Launcher to access the NAE, follow all instructions, then return to the next step in this section.
  5. After you have completed the steps in Installing Launcher to access the NAE, including the step for logging in to the NAE , update the NAE computer name value on the Network tab. After the computer name is updated, the Site Management Portal UI automatically logs out, and the NAE automatically resets. Wait for the NAE to complete the startup and initialization sequence. (This sequence may take up to 10 minutes.)
