CloudBridge Registration

Dec 18, 2015

The CloudBridge Advanced Platform (CloudBridge 400 and CloudBridge 800) can initiate discovery by Command Center, by configuring the IP address, port, and password of the Command Center server on the CloudBridge Advanced Platform (CloudBridge 400 and CloudBridge 800). The appliances then use NITRO APIs to send registration requests to Command Center. Command Center server then automatically starts the discovery process.

With this feature, you can also choose to apply configuration profiles on multiple devices at the same time. On Command Center, you must first specify the CloudBridge serial number or IP address of the CloudBridge device and also specify the configuration profiles that you want to apply on the CloudBridge device(s). For more details, see Automatically Configuring CloudBridge Devices..

By default, the CloudBridge registration feature is enabled on Command Center.

Note: CloudBridge registration is supported only on the CloudBridge Advanced Platform (CloudBridge 400 and CloudBridge 800). .
Command Center uses the following default profiles for discovery of CloudBridge Advanced Platform and the instances:
