Bringing Up CTP151 with CTPOS 9.1R1 on Internal SSD


CTPOS Release 9.1R1 does not support dual image upgrade or other upgrade procedures. So, you cannot upgrade to CTPOS Release 9.1R1 from older releases. The dual image upgrade procedure will be supported in a future release.

On the CTP151 device, the flash media (running the CTPOS software) is not removable, therefore CTPOS installation is done using a USB flash device. To bring up the CTP151 device with CTPOS on the internal SSD:

  1. Download and burn the CTPOS software USB installation image to a USB flash device.
  2. Insert the USB flash device to the CTP151 chassis, power on the CTP151 device, and monitor the console.
  3. Press the Del key to open the BIOS menu.
  4. Select the Boot tab and make the first boot device the one that includes “UEFI” and “Flash” in the name, which indicates that it is the USB install media.
  5. Save and exit the setup.

    The device goes through a boot process, and then CTPOS USB installation menu opens.

  6. Select a destination disk (the internal SSD on CTP151), and then verify installation selections.
  7. Enter y to continue with the CTPOS software installation.
  8. Enter y to reboot the system.
  9. After the system reboots, go back to the BIOS menu and change the first boot device to the one that includes “UEFI OS (P5: SFSA20...”:
  10. Save and exit from the BIOS menu.

For the first-time boot process, there is a series of login prompts that require the following settings:

  1. The ctp and ctp_cmd user accounts have the default passwords. A password must be provided for the root account. The default password for the ctp user account is "ctp", and the default password for the ctp_cmd user account is "ctp_cmd". You can change the default passwords later.
  2. Supported protocol or protocols—(0) IPv4 only, (1) IPv6 only, or (2) IPv4 and IPv6. Enter the appropriate number value.
  3. Default interface—From the list of available devices, such as eth0 and eth1 (or more), enter the one to be the default.
  4. Hostname of the device.
  5. IP address of the interface—Enter the IP address of the selected interface, or accept the loopback address ( by default.
  6. Netmask of the IP address—Enter the netmask (such as, or accept as the default.
  7. Gateway IP address—Enter the IP address of the gateway, or accept the local address ( as the default
  8. Maximum transmission unit (MTU)—Enter the MTU in bytes, or accept 1500 bytes as the default.
  9. Static routes added to the default interface, if any.
  10. Date and time GMT (more precisely, UTC)—Enter these separately in digits for the month, day, hour, and minutes in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), or accept the internal settings.

    The device goes into startup mode.
