APIC-EM with ISR C1117-4PM


We got new devices for testing and now I'm trying to test provisioning. Officially this model is not supported, at least when you are adding new device you can't choose  product id (C1117-4PM) from the list in APIC-EM.

The problem is :

Due to advanced configuration of routers (distinct VRF for management) there is  configuration:

pnp profile pnp-zero-touch

backup transport https host port 443 vrf for_management

So after device got all configuration it looses it connection with main transport but after sometime it should be able to connect to backup with source vrf. I have tested this config with ISR4321 and it works.

But with C1117-4PM seems that it doesn't try to connect to backup transport.

Here is output of  show pnp profile:

As you can see it is is connected to primary and do not try to connect with backup transport.

Maybe someone has an idea how to fix it ?

IOS version  Version 16.6.2

APIC-EM Version


Found a workaround not sure is it ok.

Just added another pnp profile to config:

pnp profile pnp-zero-touch_2

transport https host port 443 vrf VRF_NAME

After 60 sec router is trying to complete provisioning process through different profile.
