Error opening tftp messages after successfully provisioning a new device

Hi everyone,

After successfully provisioning a new switch from APIC-EM, I see in the switch logs that there is a lot of error messages "error opening tftp://..", and wonder if this is common, and if so, is there any way to remove it? Is it related to the PnP profile?

I guess these errors are no big deal, but it would been nice to avoid them.

it is harmless, but annoying.  The reason it is there is due to the autoboot process.  If there is no configuration file, the device will try to TFTP one from the local network.

You can disable it with the

"no service config"

command.  You can put this in your pnp configuration file.
