I want to test the new zero touch provisioning feature on the 3850 or any IOS-XE 16.x.x Everest device. I can't seem to find a IOS-XEv image on VIRL and I can't find any documentation on how to test this in a virtual environment like GNS3. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Personally I do believe at this stage it is possible with GNS3 or EVE-NG
You can do if you have physical kit with APIC-EM, works like charm. or ZTP.
or wait for some other people have tried with their inputs.
Thanks BB, but I'm interested in virtual only. I don't have any physical switches or routers and would like to test it before purchasing the hardware, which is expensive.
All releases (classic IOS and IOS-XE) from July 2018, Zero Touch has been permanently disabled. The command "vstack" is no longer allowed.
I don't believe that it has been disabled. This feature is advertised for the new 9000 series Catalyst switches. The feature was released in IOS-XE 16.5.x Everest. It is a shame if you can't test it in a virtual environment.
If that is the case, then this is probably the new Zero Touch Provisioning that requires DNAc.
