IPICS 4.0 OS Install does not continue after 1st boot on a MSP-1RU Server


According to the manual Cisco IPICS Server Installation and Upgrade Guide Release 4.0(1)

The section under "Installing Cisco IPICS > Installing the Cisco Operating System > Step 4" after the install completes the server will reboot after which it will display the "Welcome Screen". At this point according to Step 6 states to assign the root user password as well as several other user accounts.

At this point the MSP-1RU server simply reboots and displays the linux login prompt. It does not prompt to set the root user password or any other user account password so you can continue the installation.


This is for the new MSPs and isn't documented (yet) since these will be built/installed by Cisco manufacturing. But here are the steps:

  1. login as root/password ipics
  2. run: reconfigure

This will reboot the server and present you with all the screens for setting passwords, network, etc
