request software verify-image

request software verify-image—Verify that a Viptela software image is valid and has been signed.

It is recommended that you issue a request software install or request software install-image command, or that you install device software from the vManage NMS, rather than using the request software verify-image command. Both these commands, as well as the vManage NMS image installation and upgrade processes, verify that the image is valid and has been signed before they install the software. If the verification process fails, the software image installation is not performed.
