For miners with multiple rigs to provision, we provide two network-based mechanisms to automatically enrol a new Cudo Miner installation into an organisation.
This allows the first login screen to be bypassed, placing the rig into the miner’s organisation, and therefore making it centrally manageable in the Cudo web console without physical interaction during first run.
For users of Cudo Miner on Linux, Windows, macOS, and our own Cudo Miner Bare-metal appliance, we offer a DNS-based enrolment. Additionally, only on the bare-metal platform, we also offer a DHCP-based enrolment.
Auto-enrolment via DNS
Simply create a DNS TXT record called ‘miner’ in the local domain (or any other configured search domain) that is used by the rig.
Use the format
'miner:autoenrol org=orgname' for the TXT record, where ‘orgname’ is the same organisation login username you would normally type into the miner, which can be found on the Web Console in the settings section.
Auto-enrolment via DHCP
We have commandeered a rarely-used DHCP parameter, option 40 (NIS domain), to convey the organisation, as an alternative enrolment choice for our bare-metal appliance users.
On your DHCP server, add option 40 as an unsolicited option, and enter just the organisation login username by itself. The next time a rig is started up on the network running our bare-metal appliance, it should enrol correctly.
