The LUX Experiment is a dedicated beamline for the generation of laser-plasma driven undulator radiation and built in a close collaboration of the University of Hamburg and DESY. After the first electron beams from LUX in 2016, we upgraded the beamline with a new beam transport and additional diagnostics, a miniature undulator and an x-ray spectrometer. Commissioning of the upgrade started in spring 2017. Here, we will report on the commissioning and lessons learned and present first experimental data from the beamline operation.
