Pre-Register Device Window

Pre-Register Device Window

Default Site
The site to which the devices are to be added. If the site has ZTP+ Device Defaults configured, those values are populated in the Pre-Register Device Window when you select the site from the Default Site menu.
Use Discovered
Use the Use Discovered drop-down list to add the IP address or IP address and management interface the device uses when it contacts ExtremeCloud IQ - Site Engine via ZTP+. Then, enter the Serial Number for the Discovered IP address.
Subnet Address
If you do not use the Use Discovered option, enter the device's IP subnet address (IPv4 or IPv6) in this field. The subnet must be separated from the IP address by a slash (/). Use either the mask bit notation (for example, /24), or the dotted-decimal notation (for example, /255.255.255.0.).
Starting IP Address
If you do not use the Use Discovered IP, you must add a range of at least two IP Addresses. Enter the first IP Address (IPv4 or IPv6) in your range of addresses in this field. The starting IP Address must be within the subnet address you specified. It must not match the ending IP Address.
Ending IP Address
If you do not use the Use Discovered IP, you must add a range of at least two IP Addresses. Enter the last IP Address (IPv4 or IPv6) in your range of addresses in this field. The ending IP Address must be within the subnet address you specified. It must not match the starting IP Address.
Serial Number
Enter the manufacturer-assigned serial numbers of the devices being added, separated by commas. You can also enter each serial number on its own line.
Next
Select the Next button to open a confirmation window allowing you to verify the device information entered. Although it is recommended you enter device information in the site's ZTP+ Device Defaults window, you can also use this window to enter the Gateway, Domain Name, and DNS Server information for each device you are adding.
Cancel
Select the Cancel button to close the window with no devices added to the Discovered tab.
