Activate a Device

 

If the automatic activation of a site is disabled, you must manually activate the device that is associated with the site. Use the following procedures (as applicable) to manually activate CPE devices, enterprise hub devices, and cloud spoke devices.

To activate dual-CPE devices, see Activating Dual CPE Devices (Device Redundancy).

Note

You can manually activate a device only when:

  • The status of the site (with which the device is associated) is Configured.

  • The management status of the device is Device_Detected or Device_Connected.

  1. Do one of the following:

      1. Select Resources > Devices.

        The Devices page appears.

      2. Select the device that you want to activate and click Activate Device.

  3. Click Next.

  4. After the device is activated, click OK.

Manually Activate a Device That Does Not Support Phone-Home Client

If the device does not support the phone-home client, you must push the stage-1 configuration to the device manually from the Devices page and then manually activate the device.

To push the stage-1 configuration manually:
