Just wondering if this is possible or what I should be looking at as I see some options in IC2 but not clear which I’d use. We use a default config for the devices, so a standard LAN IP and DHCP range, admin username/password, web access port, and so on. How would I set it so that if a customer was to factory reset the device, IC2 would just reprovision it? I see under the group there’s device IP settings where you can upload a CSV file, so would that be where I do it, and how do I modify it or change it as the CSV is requesting serial number where I was hoping more to just have the same config apply to all new devices.
There’s really 2 goals I’m trying to achieve so I’d love to know the proper way to do this, if at all:
The first is having it so that IC2 manages all settings, so if we configure a device and send it to a customer, and then for some reason they do a factory reset on it, as soon as it comes back online, it downloads the config from IC2 and is right back up and running the way it was before the factory reset. Same with if the customer just wanted to deploy a new site. One benefit I always see of other SD-WAN providers is the “zero touch” configuration, where the hardware can be shipped to the new location directly, and the customer just plugs it in where it downloads all the config and so on, without us needing to physically have the hardware on hand to configure it before shipping it to the customer.
Have a default initial template used for all new devices, that set username/passwords, web admin port, LAN settings and so on.
I see in IC2 I can download a configuration backup, but not clear on how you restore that, or if it’s possible to set up our template device, download the config, and then somehow upload that to IC2 for all the new devices, or if I have to do that through remote web admin? My goal is really to use IC2 as much as possible to simplify deployment, but if it has to be done through remote web admin that’s fine, just trying to understand what all I can do from IC2.
