To upload the WAN edge router authorized serial number file to the vManage NMS and then download it to all the controllers in the overlay network, use the vManage Configuration ► Devices screen.
The WAN Edge router authorized serial number file contains the chassis and serial numbers of all valid vEdge routers in the overlay network. You receive this file from Viptela. Then, from the vManage NMS, you send it to the controllers in the network. This file is required to allow the Viptela overlay network components to validate and authenticate each other and thus to allow the overlay network to become operational.
- In the WAN Edge List tab, click Upload WAN Edge List.
- In the Upload WAN Edge List window:
- Click Choose File and select the WAN edge router authorized serial number file you received from Viptela.
- To automatically validate the routers and send their chassis and serial numbers to the controllers, ensure that the checkbox Validate the Uploaded WAN Edge List and Send to Controllers is selected. (It is selected by default.) If you do not select this option, you must individually validate each router in Configuration ► Certificates ► WAN Edge List.
- Click Upload.
A list of routers in the network is displayed in the router table, with details about each router.
Introduced in vManage NMS in Release 15.2.
