After a discussion on Reddit
about a script I wrote in Python to automate the uploading of a configuration to some VSP switches, it was suggested I come here and get some details on OpenConfig.
The problem I have encountered with such approaches is that they require network connectivity. As I had mentioned in the Reddit post, I am pulling these switches out of the box, racking them, powering them up and dropping a configuration on them via console.
The manner in which OpenConfig was brought up lead me to think that it might be something available to tap into via the console. Is this possible? If so, what devices? I have been working mainly with ERS 4900's and now VSP-7400-48y and VSP-7432CQ's.
I had never heard of OpenConfig until now so I am basically starting from scratch. Any help and direction would be greatly appreciated.
