Validate or Invalidate a WAN Edge Router

To validate or invalidate a WAN Edge router, use the vManage Configuration ► Certificates screen.

In vManage NMS, you can validate, invalidate, or stage a WAN Edge router. Validation authorizes a router to be operational in the network, so that the router can establish operational connections with the vSmart controller and the vManage NMS. Staging allows you to provision and test a router before it is validated and joins the actual production network.

Validate a WAN Edge Router

When you add vEdge and WAN routers to the network using the Configuration ► Devices screen, you can automatically validate the routers and send their chassis and serial numbers to the controller devices by clicking the checkbox Validate the uploaded WAN Edge List and send to controllers. If you do not select this option, you must individually validate each router and send their chassis and serial numbers to the controller devices. To do so:

  1. In the WAN Edge List tab, select the router to validate.
  2. In the Validate column, click Valid.
  3. Click OK to confirm the move to the valid state.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 to 3 for each router you wish to validate.
  5. Click the Send to Controllers button in the upper left corner of the screen to send the chassis and serial numbers of the validated routers to the controller devices in the network. vManage NMS displays the Push WAN Edge List screen showing the status of the push operation.
