I want to do some tests with the CNS 'Configuration Engine' and a ME-3400G-2CS-A (4 gig port Metro Switch) .
The target is to implement a zero-touch deployment of these switches but I am struggling with the very first step.
The ME-3400G should get its IP address from a DHCP server but gi 0/1 and gi0/2 are shutdown by default. When the switch is powered up I cannot see any DHCP request from the switch (it is factory default and starts with the config dialog). But the doc says it is possible and do not mention any restriction to the ports:
Has anybody experience with these kind of switches?
I cannot use gi0/3 or gi0/4 as they are SFP ports whereas gi0/1 and gi0/2 are multi-media capable (SFP or Copper-Rj45) and I only have a Rj45 connector which I can use....
The NNI ports are your uplinks, so it would make sense that they would be the ones that would be asking for DHCP offers. When connected, you should get an IP on VLAN 1.
