Vyatta NOS documentation

Learn how to install, configure, and operate Vyatta Network Operating System (Vyatta NOS), which helps to drive our virtual networking and physical platforms portfolio.

Prerequisites

For the Zero Touch feature to be activated, it is essential that your network includes the DHCP server, bootstrap server, and NMS. All these components are described in the Zero Touch architecture.

The following list presents some key configurations for your network to enable Zero Touch Provisioning.
  • Configure the DHCP server in your network to add option 199, which provides the IP address of the bootstrap server.
  • Configure the bootstrap server to add vCPE (based on the serial number) to the RESTCONF data store. The data store must be modeled as defined in the YANG module referred to in version 3 of the IETF draft titled Zero Touch Provisioning for NETCONF Call Home, available at https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-netconf-zerotouch-03.
  • Connect the Zero Touch-designated port of vCPE (commonly the WAN port) to the network containing the DHCP server that is ready to supply option 199. After you power on vCPE, the vCPE configuration is fetched and loaded into the system.
