Onboarding an edge node is the process of enrolling it into a project in your enterprise. After you install EVE-OS onto your edge node, it will not yet be in the ZEDEDA system. To remotely manage your applications using ZEDEDA, you need to complete the onboarding process. For more information, see our Onboarding Edge Nodes guide.
Off-Boarding an edge node detaches it from its enterprise and enables you to migrate that edge node to another enterprise, retaining its volume instances, fully intact.
Edge View is an application developed by ZEDEDA. It enables engineers and administrators to securely and remotely access their edge nodes. Using Edge View, you can easily debug and perform general operations on your edge assets. For more information, see the Edge View documentation.
The EVE-OS installer process prints a soft serial number to the command line before it terminates. If the image is running from a writable media (e.g., a USB drive) it will also deposit the soft serial number in the INVENTORY partition as a new folder, where the folder name is the soft serial number. Another way to print it out is by running cat /config/soft_serial in the console.
