Bug Filed on 06-27-2016: Install hangs at rebooting Pi

What dashboard are you using? (Web, iOS, Android)

No idea what this means for a failed install

What OS? (Jessie, Wheezy)


What Model Pi?

Please describe the bug / issue. Attaching any relevant screenshots would be very helpful!
the installation seemed normal up to the point where it indicates ‘Rebooting Pi’ and the Pi rebooted. However, the install process still indicates rebooting. After about an hour, I manually rebooted the Pi with no change noted. I logged into Cayenne on another browser window and it took me to the same point – it skipped over step 2.

I would prefer not having to redo my entire setup on this computer just to use Cayenne.

Any ideas?

Hi Dan!,

Welcome to the Cayenne community. There are a couple different reasons why that might be happening, the most common two probably being you are using Jessie Lite, or on a corporate network. check out this post:

Please update me when you are able to :slight_smile:


This is a home operation, there is no corporate firewall.

As the installation did not finish, there is no dashboard.

I did not get any notification that the installation had finished.

I am pretty sure that I am running the full Jessie, and I am sure the SD is not full.

Following are the results of running the commands in the referenced article:

I appreciate your response, but to my eyes, the installation just did not finish. Every time that I try to log in to Cayenne, My browser is redirected back to the setup Step 1. If I choose the Raspberry Pi it proceeds to step 2, and after clicking on ‘NEXT’, Step 3 is displayed for a short time and then the display works its way up to ‘Rebooting Pi’ and circulates there.

Thanks, Dan

After downloading a new, clean copy of Jessie (full) and configuring for network access, Cayenne completely installed.

Thanks, Dan

This is GREAT to hear! I’m happy we got through this :slight_smile: Thanks for working with us.


I’m having the same problem I’m trying to setup my PI in devices for first time and it just gets stuck on last step it says " Almost done rebooting" and I watched it reboot the PI but it just gets stuck here and does nothing else can you help. It is a preloaded cayenne OS from the IOT package PI 3 b
