Validate or Invalidate a vEdge Router

In vManage NMS, you can validate, invalidate, or stage a vEdge 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.

Determine if a vEdge Router is in Valid State

To determine the validity of a vEdge router:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Certificates screen.
  2. From the list of routers, locate the desired router. Use the search box if necessary.
  3. Check the router's state in the Validity column. A router can be in one of the following states:
    • Valid—shown in green
    • Staging—shown in yellow
    • Invalid—shown in red

Validate a vEdge Router

When you add vEdge 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 vEdge 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:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Certificates screen.
  2. From the Devices title bar, select vEdge List.
  3. From the list of routers, select the vEdge router to validate.
  4. In the Validate column, click Valid.
  5. Click OK to confirm the move to the valid state.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 to 5 for each router you wish to validate.
  7. Click the Send to Controller button in the upper left corner of the screen to send the chassis and serial numbers of the validated vEdge routers to the controller devices in the network.

  5. Click OK to confirm the move to the invalid state.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 to 5 for each router you wish to invalidate.
