Changing the Boot Sequence of a USM Appliance Hardware

Applies to Product: USM Appliance™ AlienVault OSSIM®

By default, the USM Appliance hardware appliance boots from its hard disk. When trying to restore the software on a USM Appliance to its factory status, you need to configure USM Appliance to boot from the USB drive instead. This section provides instructions for performing this task.

Starting from version 5.4, AlienVault ships USM Appliance hardware built on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ProLiant Gen9 Servers. All prior versions of USM Appliance hardware are built on Supermicro servers. Follow the instructions pertaining to the USM Appliance hardware you have.
