Good afternoon, 

 

I was curious I am looking for a way to pass quick configuration to Ciena switches. I started down the Ansible path but, I ran into an error with ssh. I started to overcome it with Netmiko and a bit of Python. I am able to pass through commands but running into a problem with Ansible and sharing an SSH key for userless login. Anyone have any ideas as to the best way to allow userless connections? 

 

Next, I was looking into using RFC 2132. This follows option 43 where a device will use DHCP to get out to the web, connect to a specific server to grab a configuration to provision itself. I can't seem to find any documentation on how to make this happen. Can anyone point me in the right direction? 

 

Are there any other paths out there, I could pursue to find a way to automate a quick roll out?
