ZTP+ Device Configuration in Extreme Management Center
Using Extreme Networks' ZTP+ (Zero Touch Provisioning Plus) functionality,
you can quickly add new devices to your network and configure them in Extreme Management Center.
Typically, when adding a new device to the network, a network administrator connects a console cable
to the device to access the local console and manually configure the device.
IMPORTANT: Accessing the device via the local console during ZTP+ device configuration using a
console cable causes the process to fail. To complete the process after a failure, either configure the
device manually or type unconfigure switch all and restart the ZTP+ configuration process outlined in this topic.
In Management Center, new devices are automatically discovered on the network the moment they are connected.
ZTP+ enabled devices send information to Management Center automatically, including the serial number, the number
and speed of the ports, and the firmware version. Once a ZTP+ device is connected, you can add it to
Management Center with minimal server configuration. In addition, the latest updates are automatically downloaded
to the new device. This process minimizes the amount of time needed to configure a new device and deploy it on the network.
NOTES: ZTP+ currently allows you to configure new Layer 2 access devices. Future releases will allow additional device types.
ZTP+ is currently only available on ExtremeXOS devices on which version 21.1 or newer is installed or on an Application Analytics
