Nuvo 5006LP sensor installation

This section describes how to install OT sensor software on the Nuvo 5006LP appliance. Before installing the OT sensor software, you must adjust the appliance's BIOS configuration.


Installation procedures are only relevant if you need to re-install software on a preconfigured device, or if you buy your own hardware and configure the appliance yourself.


Before installing OT sensor software, or updating the BIOS configuration, make sure that the operating system is installed on the appliance.

Install OT sensor software on the Nuvo 5006LP

This procedure describes how to install OT sensor software on the Nuvo 5006LP. The installation takes approximately 20 minutes. After the installation is complete, the system restarts several times.

To install OT sensor software:

  1. Connect an external CD or disk-on-key that contains the sensor software you downloaded from the Azure portal.

  2. Boot the appliance.

  3. Select English.

  4. Select XSENSE-RELEASE-<version> Office....

  5. Define the appliance architecture, and network properties as follows:

    Parameter Configuration
    Hardware profile Select office.
    Management interface eth0
    Management network IP address IP address provided by the customer
    Management subnet mask IP address provided by the customer
    DNS IP address provided by the customer
    Default gateway IP address
    Input interface The list of input interfaces is generated for you by the system.
    To mirror the input interfaces, copy all the items presented in the list with a comma separator.
    Bridge interface -

    For example:
