thank you so much for your help. I tried to access "software.cisco.com" but unfortunately I dont have access for this portal.
I am testing it in SD-WAN in lab at the moment so do I have to follow same procedure to get Demo licenses for vEdgecloud routers or any other way to download .viptela file for WAN edges in lab testing for partners?
I am trying to build my own lab on vmware esxi. I have already deployed the vmanage, vbond and vsmart using Enterprise root CA. The valida vedge cloud list is also uploaded. But when I want to apply the bootstrap config for the vedge, I couldn't find where to apply it. When I use the request vedge-cloud activate command with the chassis and token genereated from vmanage, I get a certificate installation failure message on vmanage and the vbond reject the connection with the error "ERR_SER_NUM_NT_PRESENT". Is there a step or setting I am missing here?
@cisabucho you need provisioning file uploaded to vManage for this. You can generate it on software.cisco.com under your Smart Account - Controller profile if you have software subscription license for vEdge Clouds.
I have interesting problem with trying to spin-up vEdge-cloud:
Everything went well until the registration attempt. Then in some cases the command "request vedge-cloud activate" didn't register vEdge in vManage. In vManage GUI the red badge with message Certificate Installation Error appears when you mouse over the badge. However, if you went to affected vEdge CLI and just repeat the command (arrow up then enter) the vEdge get registered.
Problem is repeatable for some VM instances and not appear on other. the VM hypervisors are the same, the network are the same, the only differences is hosting PC CPU performance. I stuck with guesses why it sporadically happened.
I had recently seen the same. The issue was the clock on the vEdge Cloud. Please either synchronize it with NTP or set it manually. Also make sure to setup the timezone. Needless to say, all your controllers should have accurate clock. With vEdge Cloud, vManage issues the certificate post-OTP authentication. This process fails when the time drift between vEdge Cloud and vManage is too significant.
Hope this helps.
Thanks a lot for your quick answer. Your advise have been really helpful.
However now I am facing another problem.
I can see that vsmart, vedge and vbond are up and synchronized on vManage graphical interface. However on the dashboard I still get that the control plane connectivity is down. And when I run the command "show control connectivity" I see that the vedge have not established a dtls tunnel with vSmart.
Any clue for what can be the probllem?
It is me again,
thanks for suggesting the show command.
It helped me figure out that some how I changed the certificate of the vedge while trying to reach the control plane, so it ened up connecting to vmanage and vbond but not to vsmart.
Thanks a lot for your help,
Best regards, Mouna
@David Klebanov I have been using sd-wan in production environment. Now, my certificates are expired and the auto-generation process is failed. How do i get new certificates.
