Managing EOS Images Applied to Devices

CloudVision enables you to efficiently manage the EOS images of devices by assigning image bundles to containers or devices in the current CloudVision network topology. An image bundle assigned to containers are automatically applied to all devices under that container.

The image bundle you want to apply must already exist in the set of current EOS image bundles.

The following tasks are involved in managing the EOS image bundles assigned to devices:

Applying an Image Bundle to a Container

An image bundle can be added to, or removed from a container.

  1. Select the container and choose Manage > Image Bundle. This will load image bundle inventory in topology.

  2. Select the bundle to be assigned to the container.
  3. Click Update to provision the bundle add for the container. This action will cause a task to be created for each device in the container to upgrade it to the specified image bundle.

Viewing the Image Bundle Assigned to Devices

CloudVision Portal (CVP) enables you to use the Network Provisioning screen to view the image bundle currently assigned to a device. You can also see if the image bundle is inherited from a Container or assigned directly to the device.

Complete the following steps to view the image bundle applied to a device.

  1. Go to the Network Provisioning screen.
  2. Make sure you are using the topology view, not the list view.
  3. Click on the device in the topology.
  4. Click the image icon in the left pane.
    The image bundle assigned to the device is shown in a pop-up box.
    • If the image bundle is inherited from a Container to which the device belongs, the Container icon appears in front of the image bundle name.

    • If the image bundle is assigned directly to the device, there is no Container icon in front of the image bundle name.

Applying an Image Bundle to a Device

  1. Right-click the device, then choose Manage > Image Bundle.This will open the window display the inventory of Image bundles.
    Note: Only one image bundle can be selected and assigned to a device at a time.
  2. Select the bundle to be assigned to the device.
  3. Click Update to provision the bundle add for the device.

    This action will cause a task to be created for that device to upgrade it to the specified image bundle.

Setting up an Image Bundle as the default for ZTP

Since all devices must run this image, you must apply the image at the tenant level.

  1. Go to the Network Provisioning screen.
  2. Right-click the Tenant container and choose Manage > Image Bundle.
  3. Select the bundle you created and click Update.
  4. Click Preview to verify the changes before saving the changes.
  5. Click Save to apply the changes.
