Usage Guidelines

A device must be registered with Inventory Service before being added to a fabric. The Fabric Service supports IP numbered configuration. Each interface on a link between leaf and spine is assigned an IP address. EBGP peering uses these IP addresses.

Device credentials must be provided as part of this command if the devices are not already registered with the inventory.

If you provide the user name and password, then the device is automatically registered with the inventory service.

If you do not provide the user name and password, then you must explicitly register the device with the inventory service.


This example adds a pair of devices to the specified fabric and the specified rack.
efa fabric device add --name extr-fabric --ip,  
--rack room1-rack1 --username admin --password password
