Tags assigned to devices

Post by gio » Sat Dec 05, 2020 3:10 pm

Would be possible to assign to device tags that can be reflected into the UNL file?
I would use UNL device to generate the config for the basic connection likle at least the configuration of IPv4 addresses and/or features like specific Routing protocols, etc etc based on the tags. As an example: P routers will receive EIGRP config while PE/CE will receive OSPF and BGP. I may use the name of the device as a criterium but by having tags would easier from tha utometion point of view via scripting tools.

Tags may be used to identify groups and this might be used by EVE-NG to set for instance the running image to be used.
Upgrades/downgrades of an entire set of devices might be done in a time normally required for just one device.

TIA, Gio

It is possible in the EVE Pro. We have muticonfiguration feature where you re able assign any different configuration for exact node.
EVE Pro cookbook section about multi configurations
EVE \community has no such feature
