On-boarding is a process through which you can register the IP Office system for remote support and download a file that configures an SSL VPN service for the system. That service can then be used for remote system maintenance via an Avaya VPN Gateway (AVG) server.
•For information about how to configure and administer SSL VPN services, see the Avaya IP Office SSL VPN Solutions Guide. You can download the guide from http://support.avaya.com.
To go through the process of on-boarding, use this menu to:
1.Use Get Inventory File to download an inventory.xml file from the system.
2.Use Register IP Office to register the system with the the Avaya Global Registration Tool (GRT) website.
3.Once registered, download an on-boarding file for the system from the Avaya Global Registration Tool. This file contains the settings required to establish an SSL VPN connection between the IP Office system and an Avaya VPN Gateway (AVG) server.
4.Use the Upload On-boarding File section to upload the on-boarding file to the system. Note that the options in the menu vary depending on whether the system has been on-boarded already or not.
Generate an inventory of the IP Office system. When you register the IP Office system for remote support, the inventory file is required as part of the registration and is uploaded to the Avaya Global Registration Tool (GRT) where the inventory data is populated in the Avaya Customer Support (ACS) database.
