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.
- 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.
