Delta Provisioning

 

Use delta provisioning to push offline network changes to the Live Network. Delta provisioning is available from the Network Info table and from the Diverse Path Design window.

To initiate delta provisioning while in the Diverse Path Design window, select Action > Delta Provisioning. To initiate delta provisioning from the Tunnel tab in the Network Info table, click Provision at the bottom of the window.

In either case, the Delta Provisioning Step 1. Spec Comparison window is displayed as shown in Figure 1.
