About this task

This scenario is typical when you install the SNE on a stand-alone network dedicated to building control only. Do not use this scenario when the SNE uses APIPA. The steps can be performed from a computer that is attached to the network or a computer that is connected directly to the SNE with an Ethernet crossover cable. If the computer is attached to the network, the computer must be connected to the same subnet as the SNE. To connect to the SNE with this procedure, you may need to know the IP address of the SNE.

Procedure

  1. Check the network IP address and the subnet mask of the computer. If needed, change the IP address and the subnet mask of the computer so that the computer and the SNE are on the same subnet. The IP address assigned to the computer must be unique for the subnet.
  2. 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.
  3. Connect supply power to the SNE and wait for the SNE to complete startup and initialization. The startup and initialization sequence may take up to 10 minutes to complete. SCT Pro indicates the current IP address of the network engine.
  4. Go to Installing Launcher to access the SNE, 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 SNE, including the step for logging in to the SNE, demote the SNE from Site Director if the SNE is not going to be the Site Director.
  6. Select the SNE device object from the Navigation panel of the Site Management Portal UI and drag it to the Display panel. The SNE device object UI opens in the Display panel.
  7. Select the Network tab of the SNE device object and click Edit.
  8. Change the Computer Name value, if required. Change DHCP Enabled attribute value to False. This disables DHCP and APIPA. Specify the IP Address, IP Mask, IP Router Address, and the DNS Server IP Addresses. The network administrator typically assigns these values. Record the assigned IP address for the SNE for future reference. Click Save. The SNE automatically logs you out and resets.

  9. Wait for the SNE to complete the startup and initialization sequence.
    Note: The startup and initialization sequence may take up to 10 minutes to complete.

    Initial setup is complete.

    Note: If you connected your computer directly to the SNE with an Ethernet crossover cable, disconnect the crossover cable and connect the SNE to the network with an Ethernet patch cable.

    You can log in to the SNE by entering its IP address in Launcher on any subnet of the network.
