KiZAN has a lab of 26 Raspberry Pi 2 boards running Windows 10 IoT core. On a regular basis, we need to re-flash, provision, and configure the boards. When we perform the re-flash and provisioning process, it is manual, and consumes more time than we want to spend (up to 2 days). Truth be told, we don't have 2 days of free time, so we decided to invest in automation.
Once the entire re-flash and provisioning process was automated, we hoped to reduce the time spent to under 2 hours. Yeah, from 2 days to 2 hours. You do the math. This post is one of a series of posts describing our automation efforts for provisioning Windows 10 IoT Core on the Raspberry Pi 2.
In this post, you'll learn how to find the IP address of a Windows 10 IoT Core device after initial flash with PowerShell.
