Before attempting to create a fabric, several pre-requisite steps, which were covered earlier in this guide, need to be completed . It is required that customers read and follow the procedures in the first twelve pages of the NetVisor UNUM Fabric Automation guide that lead up to the Creating a Fabric section.
Before building a fabric all switch(es):
•Must be cabled in a spine/leaf topology.
•Must have their switch setup completed and the OOB management interfaces configured.
•Must have connectivity between the NetVisor UNUM management interface and the switch management interfaces over an OOB network. Using ping is a sufficient test.
•Licenses must be enabled.
•Must be at the same version of the NetVisor OS operating system.
•Must be in a “factory-reset” state. This means logging into the switch with the default credentials results in Netvisor asking for the End User License Agreement approval (do not accept).
