How to automate the cisco ACI APIC initial config running on UCS C-series

Hi Experts,

I am looking for thoughts on how to automate the Cisco APIC initial configuration which is running on Cisco UCS C-series servers.

As you might know when the controller boots up this is what it get displayed (snapshot below) & I need to automate the process...Any thoughts on what are ways can this be achieved ?

 

Thanks

Zulfi

Re: How to automate the cisco ACI APIC initial config running on UCS C-series

Hello @zulfikhar_a 

There is no easy way to do it. I mean, you can do it, but it would be quite challenging from the following perspectives:

+ different train releases might have different (additional) questions

+ depending of the choices you have, you will have different prompts (APIC-X. standby APIC, IPv6 oob etc

+ this is one time configuration for 99.9% of the fabrics.

If you still want to go for it, what comes to my mind is:  use pexpect to ssh to UCS-C shell, then connect to APIC CLI using Serial over LAN connection, and from there you just respond to questions.

 

Hope it helps,

Sergiu
