Installation Instructions

  1. Purchase your Raspberry Pi 3 or other compatible device and assemble it.
  2. Download the most current version of NEMS from the NEMS Linux web site.
  3. "Burn" the image to your Micro SD or eMMC card.
  4. Connect your NEMS Linux server to an Internet-connected Ethernet cable and power it on. If your device does not have Ethernet (eg., Raspberry Pi Zero W) you'll need to boot, press CTRL-ALT-F1 and type: raspi-config to go through the standard WiFi setup for the device before you can use NEMS.
  5. Important Note: On first boot, the NEMS Linux server will automatically resize its filesystem to fill your SD card/eMMC and reboot. Therefore, it is best to wait a few minutes at first boot before you login to the server (to prevent it rebooting during initialization, for example).
  6. Login to NEMS Linux console using ssh or via your browser. The default username and password are both nemsadmin.
  7. Type: sudo nems-init
  8. If applicable, restore your backup.nems NEMS Migrator file.
  9. Open https://nems.local/ in your web browser from any computer connected to the same network as your NEMS server and open NEMS SST, where you can add settings such as your SMTP configuration. If nems.local doesn't work, you may access it via IP address instead.
  10. Start adding host and service configuration via NEMS NConf.

Once you're all up and running, you can follow the Upgrade Instructions to gain access to all the latest features of NEMS Linux.
