To send the serial numbers of the controller devices to the vBond orchestrator, use the vManage Configuration ► Certificates screen.
To determine which controllers in the overlay network are valid, the vBond orchestrator keeps a list of the controller serial numbers. The vManage NMS learns these serial numbers during the certificate-generation process.
To send the controller serial numbers to the vBond orchestrator:
- In the Controllers tab, check the certificate status bar at the bottom of the screen. If the Send to Controllers check mark is green, all serial numbers have already been sent to the vBond orchestrator. If it is grey, you can send one or more serial numbers to the vBond orchestrator.
- Click the Send to vBond button in the Controllers tab.
A controller's serial number is sent only once to the vBond orchestrator. If all serial numbers have been sent, when you click the Send to vBond button, an error message is displayed. To resend a controller's serial number, you must first select the device and then select Invalid in the Validity column.
After the serial numbers have been sent, click the Tasks icon in the vManage toolbar to display a log of the file download and other recent activities.
Introduced in vManage NMS in Release 15.2.
