The Morpheus CLI can be used to setup a freshly installed Morpheus Appliance.

First, add your remote appliance with remote add

morpheus remote add demo --insecure --use

The –insecure option tells the cli to ignore SSL errors for this remote appliance.

The –use option tells the to cli to make this the current remote, so it will be used by default for subsequent commands.

Setup is also done automatically by remote add, which checks if the appliance is a fresh install and asks if you want initialize it.

Or you can run setup on a fresh appliance manually:

morpheus setup

This will prompt you for all the settings required to initialize the appliance, and then log you as the new master user with the role of System Admin.
