UniFi - Offline Console Setup without SSO

To set up your UniFi OS Console offline without creating a Ubiquiti SSO account:

1. Update your UniFi OS console’s firmware to Early Access firmware by following these steps (make sure SSH is enabled):

Updating with internet connectivity (recommended)
Updating without internet connectivity

1. Copy the link of your UniFi OS Console’s firmware download link from the Release post. See the Custom Upgrade section for more details on where to find the firmware link.

2. Connect to the console via SSH and input the upgrade command followed by the firmware download link specific to your console found in the Release post.

If updating a Dream Machine (UDM, UDM Pro) use:

ubnt-upgrade <download link>

For example:

ubnt-upgrade https://fw-download.ubnt.com/data/udm/0974-udmpro-1.8.0-f7d38e82e05c4febb5da3c0dbdb487d4.bin

If updating a Cloud Key (UCK Gen2, UCK Gen2 Plus) use:

ubnt-systool fwupdate <download link>

1. Download the firmware to your computer by opening the Release post and clicking on your device’s Firmware Download link.  See the Custom Upgrade section for more details on where to find the firmware link.

2. Using a terminal such as the Terminal application in macOS or Linux, or PuTTY on Windows, issue the scp command to transfer the firmware file to the device. User and password will be the same as the ones used to SSH into the console. 

If updating a Dream Machine (UDM, UDM Pro) use:

scp </foldername/firmwarefile.bin> <user>@<IP-of-console>:/mnt/data/fw.bin

For example:

scp /Users/alexpro/Desktop/c374-udmpro-1.10.0-13-7c563cf205df48f1bd66530982a50141.bin root@192.168.1.1:/mnt/data/fw.bin

If updating a Cloud Key (UCK Gen2, UCK Gen2 Plus) use:

scp </foldername/firmwarefile.bin> <user>@<IP-of-console>:/tmp/fw.bin

3. Connect to the console via SSH and use the upgrade command followed by the path to the file (as determined in the previous step).

  • If using a Dream Machine (UDM, UDM Pro) use: ubnt-upgrade /mnt/data/fw.bin
  • If updating a Cloud Key (UCK Gen2, UCK Gen2 Plus) use: ubnt-systool fwupdate /tmp/fw.bin

2. Copy the latest Early Access firmware for your particular UniFi OS console model from the community releases post. Minimum firmware versions that support setup without an Ubiquiti account are listed below:

  • UDM-Pro 1.11.0
    UDM-SE 2.3.10
    UDR 2.3.10
    UDM 1.11.0
    UCKP Gen2 2.3.10
    UNVR 2.3.10
    UNVR-Pro 2.3.10

3. Make sure your computer is on the same network as your UniFi OS Console, then access the web user interface by either entering:

  • unifi/ in your browser, or
  • the console’s IP address into your web browser. This address is displayed on the console’s LCM screen (for most users, it is 192.168.1.1).

4. Perform the UniFi OS console setup from the Web user interface. You will now be able to skip the create new Ubiquiti account step.
