Understanding Auto-Start

Understanding Auto-Start

This section describes how Auto-Start is implemented.

Auto-Start Principles

Before using Auto-Start for site deployment, make an intermediate file and save it to a specified directory on the file server. Save version files to be loaded to the specified directory on the file server. After configuring an IP address and file server parameters on a device, enable Auto-Start. The device then automatically downloads and loads version files based on the intermediate file after the start.

The intermediate file contains the mapping between the device's MAC address + equipment serial number (ESN) and the system software, version, patch file, and configuration file. A device uses the file server's IP address, a user name, and a password to set up a connection with the file server, downloads and parses the intermediate file. After successfully parsing the intermediate file, the device downloads corresponding version files from the file server and loads the files. For details about how to make the intermediate file, see Making the Intermediate File.

Site deployment files consist of mandatory and optional files.
  • Mandatory file
    • Intermediate file: The file name must be arstart.ini.
  • Optional file
    • System software: The file name extension is .cc or .zip.
    • Patch file: The file name extension is .pat.
    • Configuration file: The file name extension is .cfg or .zip.
You can select at least one optional file for site deployment using Auto-Start.

Site Deployment Process Using Auto-Start

Figure 3-2 shows the site deployment process using Auto-Start.

Figure 3-2  Site deployment process using Auto-Start
  1. Make an intermediate file.
  2. Save the intermediate file and version files to a specified directory on the file server.
  3. Configure the device's IP address and file server parameters.
  4. Enable Auto-Start.
  5. The device starts the Auto-Start process.
  6. The site deployment process using Auto-Start ends.

Auto-Start Process on a Device

Figure 3-3 shows the Auto-Start process on a device.

Figure 3-3  Auto-Start process on a device
  1. The device connects to the file server to obtain and parse the intermediate file.
    • If the device successfully parses the file, go to step 2.
    • If the device fails to obtain or parse the file, the site deployment fails.
  2. The device obtains site deployment files from the file server and saves the files to a specified storage medium according to description in the intermediate file.
    • If the device successfully obtains the files, go to step 3.
    • If the device fails to obtain the files, the site deployment fails.
  3. The device specifies the system software, configuration file, and patch file as next startup files.
  4. The device restarts.
