With the “out-of-the-box” configuration provided for Networks, Network Services, and Profiles, plus the default configuration provided for an Edge, your newly created Edge configuration is complete. You are now able to activate your Edge device and apply the VeloCloud Orchestrator Edge configuration to the Edge device. Edge activation is the same for the three workflows. Next, complete the steps described in Configure Edge Activation.

When PKI is enabled (access must be granted by the Operator), you can choose from three certificate options (Certificate Required, Certificate Optional, or Certificate Disabled). If PKI is enabled and you set the certificate to Certificate Required, you are provisioning the Edge and the Pre-Shared Key is not available.
