Question
Is zero-touch provisioning supported on EoS?
Environment
  • S-Series
  • 7100-Series
  • K-Series
    • N-Series
    • Securestack
Answer
The Securestack is the only EOS device that supports automatic configuration starting  with firmware 6.71.X.X . 
The feature is called Automated Deployment

The automated deployment feature allows a newly installed device, with no administrative configuration (default configuration), to automatically obtain the latest firmware revision and configuration from the network. The DHCP client, using a default VLAN and base MAC, obtains a temporary IP address and mask and the IP address of the NetSight server from the DHCP server.
Optionally, use DHCP Vendor Class Identifier (VCI) code option 60 to identify “Extreme Networks, Inc.” as the vendor. Use DHCP vendor specific code option 125 to specify the information required for the switch to send the trap to start the Netsight OneView application.

Upon obtaining the NetSight IP address, automated deployment sends a notification to NetSight,
informing NetSight that its status is READY. NetSight, using its Inventory Manager, drives the
needed changes to the device by determining the configuration to apply and querying the device
as to any required upgrades. Refer to the NetSight help page “New Device Configuration in
OneView” for NetSight device configuration information.

The automated deployment feature has no CLI input associated with it. Its only dependency is
whether the device is currently at the default configuration.

To determine if a device is currently at default configuration, login to the device and a banner will
display stating that the system is running with default configuration with a temporary IP address
assigned by the DHCP server.

If any CLI configuration is entered for a device configured at default configuration, the device
releases the IP address, any SNMP and DHCP settings are backed out, and the device exits
automated deployment mode.

Note: Configuration files, generated from a “save config”, do not contain the advanced routing
license. When using a configuration file for NetSight Automated Deployment that makes use of
licensed features, you will need to manually enter the appropriate set license commands into the
configuration file.

To set the device to its default configuration type  clear config
Verify that the security profile is set to normal mode, type
show security profile 
If needed change the security profile, type 
set security profile
