Automated deployment automates the day-zero experience of securely onboarding and deploying the NFVIS WAN Edge device, with default factory shipped settings, into the SD-WAN network.
Automated deployment discovers the vBond IP address dynamically using the PnP process for the ENCS physical platform.
The following are the primary requirements to use this onboarding option:
The NFVIS WAN Edge device must be connected to a WAN transport that can provide a dynamic IP address, default-gateway and DNS information.
The NFVIS WAN Edge device can DNS resolve devicehelper.cisco.com for the Plug-and-Play Connect server.
In vManage, a device configuration must be built and attached to the WAN Edge device to successfully onboard the device.
