Intermediate File

Intermediate File

If Option 67 that contains information about the configuration file is not configured on the DHCP server, Auto-Config enables devices to obtain information about version files that need to be downloaded by parsing the intermediate file.

The intermediate file is saved on the file server and contains information about mappings from system MAC address or ESN to the system software name, system software version, patch file name, and configuration file name. After obtaining the IP address of the file server, the device downloads the intermediate file from the file server, searches for the system software name, system software version, patch file name and configuration file name that match its own MAC address or ESN, and downloads files from the file server based on the obtained file names.

For example, if the MAC address of a device is 0018-82C5-AA89, the ESN is 9300070123456789, the version file name is, the version is V200R010, the patch file is auto_V200R010.pat, the configuration file is auto_V200R010.cfg, the intermediate file content is as follows:
  • The intermediate file name is arnet.ini.
  • If multiple devices are configured, each row in the intermediate file records configuration information about each device.
  • When configuring the intermediate file, enter the MAC address and ESN, or either of them. The configuration file is mandatory, and the version file and patch file are optional. The three files can be configured in any sequence.
  • The version file name and system software version must be available in the intermediate file, and version ID in the system software name must be the same as that in the intermediate file. The version number (vrpver) must be included in the system software information (vrpfile).
