Useful Tips: I finished the process and the instructions are very precise and they have to be followed exactly as you show the pictures. I have some feedback that may help others not to trip in the future. at 1:47 the user has to make sure the protocol is at scp. It does not come to scp by default and not having that selected correctly is confusing when trying to set up the scp shell. Min 3:36 I would instruct the user to go to playbook and tap the dismiss button.
