Summary

This is the Unifi Base Configuration procedure which is carried out on all Oxygen IT managed Unifi network devices. It

configures the Unifi device to contact the Oxygen IT Unifi Portal so the device can then be managed. This procedure does not adopt the Unifi device into a specific tenant, it simply gets the Unifi device to the point where it is ready to be adopted.


The following is generated by this procedure:

* Configured and ready to be adopted Unifi device showing in the Oxygen IT Portal

* Password protect the Unifi device (automatic, once it appears in the Unifi Portal)

What is needed for this procedure

- SSH application

- Existing network, running DHCP, with internet access

- Network cable

- Access to, or someone who has, access to the Oxygen IT Unifi Portal

- Pin/Paperclip (only if reset is necessary)


Procedure

This procedure is separated into two phases; physically setting up the device/s, and configuring the device/s. If this is an existing device, you may want to reset it first. Refer to the Reset the device section to carry this out.


Setup the device

1. Deploy items near adequate power and network

2. Plug in power

3. Plug in network cable

    - If Unifi switch, any port will do

    - If WAP with more than one port, use primary

    - If USG, use WAN1 port


Configure the device

Follow the appropriate configure steps based on the type of device/s you're configuring.


Configure layer 2 device (Switch or WAP)

1. Identify IP address of Unifi device

2. Connect to Unifi device using SSH

3. Log in to the Unifi device using the default credentials

Username: ubnt

Password: ubnt

4. Run this command in the console

set-inform http://unifi.oxygenit.com.au:8080/inform

5. Re-run the above command, one more time

6. Check portal to see if the Unifi device is showing as adoptable in any of the tenants


Configure layer 3 device (USG)

1. Connect your PC directly to the Unifi device's LAN1 port, using a network cable

2. Connect to the Unifi device at 192.168.1.1 using SSH

3. Log in using default credentials

Username: ubnt

Password: ubnt

4. Run this command in the console

set-inform http://unifi.oxygenit.com.au:8080/inform

5. Re-run the above command, one more time

6. Check portal to see if the Unifi device is showing as adoptable


Reset the device

1. Ensure the device is connected up to the network as if you were about to configure it

2. Using a pin/paperclip, depress the pinhole button on the device and hold it for approximately 10 seconds (devices light patterns should change once time has elapsed)

3. Once reset is completed (light patterns return to normal), configure as normal
