Configure Geographic Coordinates for a Device

To configure the geographic coordinates for a device, use the vManage Configuration ► Templates ► System feature template.

If the Viptela device is not attached to a configuration template, you can configure the latitude and longitude directly on the device:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Tools ► SSH Terminal screen.
  2. Select the device from the left pane. The SSH Terminal screen opens in the right pane.
  3. Enter the username and password to log in to the device.
  4. Determine whether the device is attached to a configuration template:
    Viptela# show system status
    Check the values in the vManaged and Configuration template output fields. For example:
    ...
    Personality:            vedge
    Model name:             vedge-cloud
    Services:               None
    vManaged:               false
    Commit pending:         false
    Configuration template: None

    If the vManaged field is false, the device is not attached to a configuration template, and the Configuration template field says None. For such a device, you can configure the GPS coordinates directly from the CLI.
    If the vManaged field is true, the device's configuration has been downloaded by the vManage server, and the Configuration template field shows the name of the configuration template. For such a device, you cannot configure the GPS coordinates directly from the CLI. If you attempt to do so, the validate or commit command fails, with the following message:
    Aborted: 'system is-vmanaged': This device is being managed by the vManage. Configuration through the CLI is not allowed.
  5. Enter configuration mode:
    Viptela# config
    ​Viptela(config)#
  6. Configure the latitude and longitude on the device:
    Viptela(config)# system gps-location latitude degrees.minutes.seconds
    Viptela(config-system)# gps-location longitude degrees.minutes.seconds
  7. Save the configuration:
    Viptela(config-system)# commit
    Viptela(config-system)#
