Configure vBond & Generate Certificate

Once vBond VM has been setup and started, it will come up with factory-default configuration. Now some more basic and initial configuration still to be done manually so that devices can be authenticated and verified and can easily join the overlay network.

Once initial configuration is done, a full configuration templates can be created on vManage and then attaching these templates to vBond orchestrator.

Create Initial Configuration for the vBond Orchestrator from CLI Section

Login to the Viptela device via SSH with user admin, using the default password, admin. | Enter configuration mode:

vBond# config

Configure the hostname:

vBond(config)# system host-name hostname

Configure the system IP address:

vBond(config-system)# system-ip ip-address

The vManage NMS uses this vBond system IP address to identify the device and can download the full configuration to the vBond.

Configure the public IP address of the vBond orchestrator which will allow all Viptela devices in the overlay network to reach the vBond orchestrator:

vBond(config-system)# vbond ip-address local

Configure a time limit to confirm that a software upgrade is successful: Time limit is between 1 to 60 mints.

vBond(config-system)# upgrade-confirm minutes

Change the password for the user "admin" whereas The default password is "admin".

vBond(config-system)# user admin password password

Configure an interface in VPN 0, over which an Internet or other WAN transport network can be connected and must be public IP address.

vBond(config)# vpn 0 interface interface-name
vBond(config-interface)# ip address ipv4-prefix/length
vBond(config-interface)# no shutdown

Commit the configuration:

vBond(config)# commit and-quit

Once overlay network is UP, create the vBond configuration template in vManage that contain the initial configuration. Use the following vManage Feature template.

  • Use System feature template for hostname, system IP address, and vBond functionality configuration
  • Use AAA feature template to configure a password for the "admin" user.
  • Use VPN Interface Ethernet feature template to configure the interface in VPN 0


    You are will be the first.
