Command Syntax

validate

Options

None

Output Fields

If the configuration on a Viptela device has been downloaded from the vManage NMS, the device is attached to a configuration template and the device is being managed by the vManage server. In this situation, you cannot modify the device's configuration from the CLI. When you issue the validate command (or the commit command), the following message is displayed:

vEdge(config)# validate
Aborted: 'system is-vmanaged': This device is being managed by the vManage. Configuration through the CLI is not allowed.
vEdge(config)#

To determine whether the device is attached to a configuration template, use the show system status command. Check the values in the vManaged and Configuration template output fields. For example:

vEdge-1# show system status
...
Personality:            vedge
Model name:             vedge-cloud
Services:               None
vManaged:               false
Commit pending:         false
Configuration template: None

vEdge-2# show system status
...
Personality:            vedge
Model name:             vedge-cloud
Services:               None
vManaged:               true
Commit pending:         false
Configuration template: vedge

If the vManaged field is false, the device is not attached to a configuration template, and the Configuration template field says None. You can configure such a device from the CLI.

If the vManaged field is true, the device's configuration has been downloaded by the vManage server, and the Configuration template field shows the name of the configuration template. You cannot configure such a device from the CLI.

Example Output

vm4(config)# validate 
Validation complete
vm4(config)#
