About this task
This scenario is common to many building networks. The SNE 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 SNE for a network without DHCP and without DNS support when the SNE uses a static IP address.
- Attach the SNE to the network using an Ethernet patch cable.
- With your computer or commissioning laptop connected to the building network, open SCT Pro. This tool listens for and shows the IP address information of the SNE as it comes online.
Connect supply power to the
SNE and wait for the

The startup and initialization sequence may take up to 10 minutes to complete.
- Go to Installing Launcher to access the SNE, follow all instructions, then return to the next step in this section.
- After you have completed the steps in Installing Launcher to access the SNE, including the step for logging in to the SNE, update the SNE computer name value on the Network tab. After the computer name is updated, the Site Management Portal UI automatically logs out, and the SNE automatically resets. Wait for the SNE to complete the startup and initialization sequence. (This sequence may take up to 10 minutes.)
