Provisioning

Post by bikefantic » 29 Aug 2022, 15:23

Hello,
i need some help, since i'm trying to start provisioning my STB's and they don't keep the xml file.

What i did:
Setup: tvip s525
Raspy1: pihole DNS/DHCP
Raspy2: provisioning server (lighttpd)

I made a DNS redirect from stock provisioning address (tvipstb.net) to my local server (raspy2) providing the new xml provisioning file.
The box can connects and read the xml file. The changes i did also appear. I'm changing the provisioning server address in the xml file to another server address, so that the box connects to this one instead of tvipsbt.net.
However, this server is not reachable at the moment, but the box should keep the settings from last xml file it got, right?
Instead i loads the stock xml file pointing to tvipstb.net and i get the error messege "cannot write tvip-id file".
Am I missing somethin here? What do i need to do, keep the xml file on the box ?
Wiki was not helpfull for this topic.


Thanks in advance

Hello,

The xml file should accessible by path http://[PROVISION_ADDR]/prov/tvip_provision.xml
if box receive 404 from provisioning server then provisioning setting will be removed

Hello,

this means if my provisioning server is not reachable, the xml file will be deleted ? For example this would mean, all devices which try to connect to my provisioning server when it's not reachable (why ever) will loose their provisioning and try to reach tvipstb.net for prov. nex time ?

I would like them to keep the xml. file or at least the provisioning address, even if the prov. server is not up at the moment.
