This section provides information about module provisioning that is not specific to any application. In general, this is the provisioning that is related to the equipment branch of the provisioning tree, but it can include other parts of the tree as well.
If you enable auto-provisioning (see Auto-Provisioning of BTI7800 Equipment), you will not need to use many of the procedures in this chapter because the system auto-provisions the equipment for you when you insert the module into the chassis.
However, if you want to pre-provision equipment (see Pre-Provisioning of BTI7800 Components) or if you do not enable auto-provisioning, then follow the procedures contained in this section.
If auto-provisioning can replace a procedure, then it is clearly indicated at the beginning of the procedure.
