Before you stage a SD-WAN Edge to Bastion Orchestrator, you must first stage an Enterprise associated with the Edge to the Bastion Orchestrator.

To stage a SD-WAN Edge to Bastion Orchestrator, perform the following steps.

Prerequisites

  • Ensure you have configured two Orchestrators as a Bastion pair. For steps, see Configure Bastion Orchestrator.
  • Ensure you have set up the Production Orchestrator to support Bastion configurations. For steps, see Set up Production Orchestrator.
  • Ensure you have created a Bastion profile with a minimum configuration in the Production Orchestrator, for the purpose of staging an Enterprise customer to Bastion Orchestrator.

  1. In a web browser, launch the Production Orchestrator and login as an Operator user.
  2. In the Operator portal, click Manage Customers.
  3. Select an Enterprise customer to stage to Bastion Orchestrator and click Actions > Stage to Bastion.

  4. From the Customer Profile drop-down menu, select a Bastion profile (minimum configuration profile created for staging purpose) to stage along with the customer and click Stage to Bastion.
    The selected Enterprise customer is staged along with the Bastion profile to the Bastion Orchestrator. Now, you can stage a SD-WAN Edge configured within the Enterprise customer to the Bastion Orchestrator
  5. To stage a SD-WAN Edge to the Bastion Orchestrator, select the Edge and click Actions > Stage to Bastion.
