    144 ===== Configuring Base station profile =====
    145 
    146   After uploading the license,
    147   - Create a discovery task: Server -> Discovery parameters -> Add
    148 (the form fields should match the BS configuration)
    149   - Wait for the discovery to take place
    150   - After a while, the BS should be visible under Configuration
    151 management -> Node -> Node
    152   - Select it and click on Edit
    153   - Configure everything according to the "golden config" (basically
    154 the default settings), except for the IP address and RF profile which
    155 are site-specific
    156   - Make sure that the form field "Ready for service" says "Ready for service"
    157   - Click OK
    158   - Wait for the provisioning to complete (it takes a couple of minutes)
    159   - If the provisioning fails, the BS is probably in "maintenance"
    160 mode and must be switched to "out of service" with the
    161 following steps, if needed:
    162   - Select the BS and click on Manage
    163   - Go to the "State and control" page
    164   - Under "16e BS service state" select "Set out of service"
    165   - Click OK and wait, now the provisioning should take place
    166 
    167   - Switch the "16e BS service state" to "in service", following the
    168 above procedure
    169   - Now netspan should report all green and the BS should be fully up
    170 and running
    171 
    172 ''' Note ''' that the BS cannot be moved from "maintenance" to "in service"
    173 directly , so it must be put first into "out of service" state, and then finally "in
    174 service".
