interfaces (Autoinstallation)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the interface on which to perform autoinstallation. A request for an IP address is sent from the interface. Specify the IP address procurement protocol.


When you run the system autoinstallation command, the command will configure unit 0 logical interface for all the active state physical interfaces. However, few commands like fabric-options do not allow its physical interface to be configured with a logical interface. If the system autoinstallation and the fabric-options commands are configured together the following message is displayed incompatible with 'system autoinstallation’.


  • bootp—Enables BOOTP or DHCP during autoinstallation.

  • rarp—Enables RARP during autoinstallation.
