APIC-EM PnP bootstrap configuration template

Hi,

I would like to leverage the Mobile App to upload the bootstrap config for a router which use 4g as a backhaul network.

Challenge is the 4g cellular interface configuration requires some interactivity:

IR800#cellular 0 lte profile create 1 jaspermo.apn

Warning: You are attempting to modify the attach profile.

Please consult the service provider before doing so.

Modem power cycle required for change to take effect.

PDP Type = IPv4v6

Access Point Name (APN) =

Authentication = NONE

Profile 1 already exists with above parameters. Do you want to overwrite? [confirm]

Profile 1 will be overwritten with the following values:

PDP type = IPv4

APN = jaspermo.apn

Authentication = NONE

Are you sure? [confirm]

Profile 1 written to modem

Is there a way to templatize this sequence ? 

Thanks,

Laurent.

Re: APIC-EM PnP bootstrap configuration template

I'm aware this post is over 1 year old, but perhaps this will give a hint to someone in the future.

As far as I remember, APIC-EM is not able to do dialogues while deploying config via PnP - even with bootstrapping.

 

Possible the best way to go about this is to create an EEM script and assign the script to the config that will be deployed. 
Note: Add some delay to the script start, since an immediate start can cause problems with APIC-EM config deployment. I used 20/30 seconds. Tests with immediate start caused the provisioning process to fail midway.
