Enter Option (partial string is acceptable): full

Next comes the setup wizard.  Fill it out to configure the basics of the host.  
Enter System name [Aruba7005]:
Enter Switch Role (master|local|standalone|branch) [master]:
Enter VLAN 1 interface IP address []:
Enter VLAN 1 interface subnet mask []:
Enter IP Default gateway [none]:
Do you wish to configure IPV6 address on vlan 1 (yes|no) [yes]: no
This controller is restricted, please enter country code (US|PR|GU|VI|MP|AS|FM|MH) [US]:
You have chosen Country code US for United States (yes|no)?: yes
Enter Time Zone [PST-8:0]:
Enter Time in UTC [18:43:15]: 19:00:00
