Issue Details

For all MP300 rackable devices manufactured since the 24th of August 2020, 
there is no more USB controller on the motherboard.

As a result, it is not possible to control MP300 rackable devices using USB cable.
Those devices are dedicated for production tests.
In manufacturing context, TCP/IP communication is exclusively used.

Solution

MP300 rackable devices are now delivered with USB-Serial cable. 

At the reception of the equipment, it's necessary to change the IP settings of the device
- to keep the rack mode enable or disable it 
- to change the IP address of the device and adjust it to your company network

After configuration, the device can then be used normally with the help of an ethernet cable.
