Feature Limitations

  • The EasyDeploy cannot be applied on an IPv6 or VPN network.
  • EasyDeploy is mutually exclusive with USB-based deployment and SVF.
  • In the unconfigured device deployment or faulty device replacement scenarios, if you log in to a device to be configured through its console interface, the device stops the EasyDeploy process and starts to operate.
  • In the unconfigured device deployment and faulty device replacement scenarios, EasyDeploy can only run on the service interfaces in the default VLAN.
  • In the unconfigured device deployment scenario, you can decide whether to specify the configuration file based on actual requirements. If the configuration file is not specified and the upgrade system software is specified, you also need to specify the upgrade version number.
  • There is no limitation on the network location of the Commander as long as there are reachable routes between the Commander and clients that obtain IP addresses.
  • EasyDeploy allows a stack system to act as a client. In this case, the client MAC address is the system MAC address of the stack system, and the client ESN is the ESN of the stack master switch.
  • When the EasyDeploy topology collection function is enabled, the Commander that initiates topology collection will receive a large number of protocol packets if the Network Topology Discovery Protocol (NTDP) needs to collect the topology of more than 200 devices. If the rate of NTDP packets exceeds the default committed access rate (CAR), NTDP packets will be dropped. To prevent packet loss from affecting topology collection, you can run the car (attack defense policy view) command to increase the central processor CAR (CPCAR) of NTDP packets.
  • Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) encryption

    • On a configured switch, EasyDeploy supports DTLS encryption. By default, DTLS encryption is enabled. In the unconfigured device deployment scenario, a switch can be normally deployed regardless of whether DTLS encryption is enabled.

    • If an active/standby switchover occurs on the Commander or between clients when DTLS encryption is enabled, the clients need to go online again. If DTLS encryption is disabled, an active/standby switchover does not affect online management of clients.

    • If a client in a version earlier than V200R010C00 needs to be managed by the Commander in V200R010C00 or a later version and DTLS encryption is enabled on the Commander, you must upgrade the system software of the client to V200R010C00 or a later version. Otherwise, the client cannot join the existing network.

    • If a client in V200R010C00 or a later version needs to be managed by the Commander in a version earlier than V200R010C00, you need to run the easy-operation dtls disable command on the client to disable DTLS encryption.

    • If the clients are modular switches, EasyDeploy can only be applied to the batch upgrade and batch configuration scenarios.
    • If the clients are fixed switches, EasyDeploy applies to the batch upgrade, batch configuration, unconfigured device deployment, and faulty device replacement scenarios.
