To activate VM version of VeloCloud we need to go to Orchestrator and create new device. After that we will be able to get Activation Key and then we will use it in VM console.
All of below files are located in /opt/vc/bin/.
Set static or dynamic IP address for GE4 – this is necessary for internet connection.
# set_wan_config.sh GE4 STATIC [ip-address] [mask] [gateway]
# set_wan_config.sh GE3 STATIC 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.254
# set_wan_config.sh GE4 DHCP
After that the proper IP address is configured. It is also possible to check interface and make ping from VM to gateway np. google dns.
# ifconfig # ping 10.0.0.254
Log into Orchestrator and then create new device like below. Of course fill required field marked with blue star (*).
after that you can get Activation Key.
Activate your version of VM running script called activate.py.
# activate.py -p -s [vcserver] -i [activation-code]
# activate.py -p -s vco8-fra1.velocloud.net -i XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
- -s is our server/orchestrator, e.g. vco8-fra1.velocloud.net
- -p shows progress of activaction
- -i ignores certificate errors
- XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX is activation code
Verification of activation:
