Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Auto-Config

Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Auto-Config

This section provides prerequisites for configuring Auto-Config, interfaces that support Auto-Config, and configuration notes.

Involved Network Elements


Licensing Requirements

Auto-Config is a basic feature of a router and is not under license control.

Feature Limitations

  • AR100 series, AR120 series (except AR129 and AR129GW-L), AR150 series (except AR156, AR156W, AR157, AR157G-HSPA+7, AR157VW, AR157W, AR158E, and AR158EVW), AR160 series (except AR161FW-P-M5), AR201, AR1200 series, AR2200 series, and AR3200 series support Auto-Config function.

  • The management interfaces of the AR1200, AR2200, AR3200, and AR3600 series do not support the Auto-Config function.

  • In deployment, you can use Auto-Config to configure the device or manually configure the device. If the device is manually configured, Auto-Config is disabled automatically.
  • The device can be configured using Auto-Config or USB deployment. However, two deployment methods cannot be used together. If you need to use the Auto-Config function after USB-based deployment has been performed on the device, you need to run the set factory-configuration from default command to specify the default factory settings as factory settings.
  • When the factory settings are being restored, only unconfigured WAN interfaces support the Auto-Config function.
  • Devices to be configured must be new devices, that is, no startup configuration file with file name extension .cfg or .zip exists on the device.
  • You can obtain the MAC address and ESN of the device in the following ways:
    • Check the label on the device.

    • Log in to the device and run the display system-mac command in the diagnosis view and the display esn command.

  • The following interfaces support the Auto-Config function:
    • AR100 series: GE0/0/4
    • AR121, AR121W, AR121GW-L: Eth0/0/4

    • AR129CGVW-L: GE0/0/4
    • AR150 series (except AR156, AR157, AR157W, AR157VW, AR157G-HSPA+7, AR158EVW and AR156W): Eth0/0/4

    • AR160 series (except AR169 and AR169G-L): GE0/0/4
    • AR160 series (AR169 and AR169G-L): GE0/0/3
    • AR200 series (except AR206, AR207, AR207V, AR207V-P, AR208E, AR207G-HSPA+7 and AR207VW): Eth0/0/8

    • AR1200 series, AR2200 series, and AR3200 series: Layer 3 Ethernet interfaces except for the management interface, GPON interface, and EPON interface

      When a GPON or EPON interface is used to implement the Auto-Config function on a device, the system automatically creates a sub-interface numbered 4094. In addition, the system sets the encapsulation mode of the sub-interface to dot1q and the VLAN tag allowed by the sub-interface to 4000. Therefore, the device and DHCP server must exchange packets of VLAN 4000.

  • When users log in to the new device or devices with no startup configuration files through the console interface, the system prompts the following information: "Auto-Config is working. Before configuring the device, stop Auto-Config. If you perform configurations when Auto-Config is running, the DHCP, routing, DNS, and VTY configurations will be lost. Do you want to stop Auto-Config? [y/n]:".
    • To continue Auto-Config, enter n.
    • To stop Auto-Config, enter y.
      If you do not want to run Auto-Config but enter n, the DHCP, routing, DNS, and VTY configurations will be lost after the choice.
