Add Device to Managed Devices

Before working with devices, it's important to have a good understanding of the device configuration lifecycle.

  1. Install the minimum pre-Apstra configuration, then create and install your onbox device agent(s) or offbox device agent(s).
  2. If you're deploying modular devices, you may need to change the default device profile that's assigned to your device.
  3. Navigate to Devices > Managed Devices to see that the device state is Out of Service Quarantine. Configuration at this point is called Pristine Config.
  4. In the left column of the table, select the check box(es) for the device(es) to manage in the Apstra environment.
  5. Above where you just clicked, click the Acknowledge selected systems button (check mark) in the Device action bar.
  6. Click Confirm to acknowledge device(s) and return to the list view. The device state changes to Out of Service Ready. Configuration at this point is called Discovery 1 Config and you can now manage the device(s) from the Apstra environment.
