Selective Onboarding of a Device


In this procedure, we will add a leaf device to the DC2 data center fabric.

To onboard a device:

  1. Select Fabrics, and then select the fabric to which you want to add the leaf device.
  2. Select Action > Brownfield Wizard.

    The device configuration screen appears.

  3. Fill in the following fields and click Next..



    Value Used in This Example


    Name of your fabric


    Overlay ASN (IBGP)

    AS number for the EVPN overlay (Default is 64512)


    Node Profiles

    Device types that are available in your fabric

    Default, which selects all device types

    VLAN-ID Fabric-Wide Significance

    Select the VLAN-ID Fabric Wide Significance check box to enable enterprise style of configuration. In this mode, Contrail Networking ensures that every Layer 2 Service or VLAN ID in a fabric is unique, and that there is a 1:1 mapping between the VLAN ID (4K VLANs per fabric) and the Virtual Extensible LAN Network Identifier (VNI).

    In most cases, 4K bridge domains are more than sufficient for any enterprise deployment. Fabric-wide significance of a VLAN ID implies that any VLAN being provisioned in an EVPN VXLAN fabric maps to a VNI in a 1:1 ratio.

    Box is checked

    Device credentials

    Username and root password of your fabric devices.

    Username: lab

    Password: ******

    Management subnets

    CIDR: IP address and prefix of the management subnet.


  4. 4. Click Next and then click Finish.

    The device discovery process begins.

  5. Configure CRB-Access as the role for the leaf device.
  6. Click Assign.
  7. Click AutoConfigure.
