I’m currently adapting the ZTP support to also allow provisioning Huawei switches running VRP.
A key task in all our provisioning is letting Foreman know that the system is ready for any next steps, this is done by GETting the “foreman_url(‘built’)”-URL.
Now, it appears as if VRP doesn’t like the “?” in that URL. If I’d use this directly via foreman, I’d have the ability to simply call “<foreman_url>/unattended/built” and all would be well; however, from a proxy PoV this does not exist.
Are there other (less-known) ways of notifying foreman that the system is built?
Does anyone know VRP or use it in combination with foreman? If so, any known work-arounds?
If not, I’m willing to implement a good & acceptable way of doing this; only problem here would be: what would be the alternative? Would it be safe to rely on the forwarer-ip header at the foreman side? I wouldn’t want to go and change the world (read: the foreman way) just because this one vendor decided a questionmark is the root of all evil.
I’m also in contact with Huawei on that specific topic, as it seems extremely silly to me that the questionmark “?” would not be allowed to be used anywhere in VRP but for having context-sensitive help…
