SCP on Arista Switches

It’s the year 2022 so can we collectively agree to stop using insecure protocols like FTP and TFTP to transfer files to and from your network devices? One of the many advantages of Arista switches is that you can use Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) which is an encrypted protocol to move files to and from them and also use the switch itself as an SCP source or destination. Years ago if you were remote and performed a firmware update to a network device you’d have to set up an FTP or TFTP server and then deal with the headaches when doing active vs. passive FTP if going through a firewall etc. With SCP it runs over port 22 (same as SSH) so in theory if you can SSH to the device you should also be able to SCP to it.

Ansible Inventory from Netbox using GraphQL

Recently I have been working more with network automation and using Arista Validated Designs (AVD), Ansible and Netbox. A somewhat common request that I encounter is being able to pull the Ansible inventory from Netbox. There is an Ansible plugin for this called “nb_inventory” to do this exact function. However, through my testing I have found a more preferable approach. I opt for executing an Ansible playbook with a GraphQL query, which then processes the output through a Jinja template to create the inventory file. This technique offers a significant advantage: in the event of a Netbox server outage or accessibility issues, the inventory remains usable for running Ansible playbooks until access to Netbox is restored. In the upcoming example, I’ll introduce additional logic tailored for environments using AVD. However, the approach can be easily adapted for scenarios involving only Ansible and Netbox. This article presumes the presence of functional Netbox and AVD environments which is out of scope for this post.

Hunting Duplicate IP Addresses Using "Arping" on Arista Switches

As network operators, we often face the daunting task of troubleshooting duplicate IP addresses on the network. This is an age-old issue that can turn into a tedious and time-consuming process if not handled efficiently. Traditional troubleshooting methods involve pinging the IP address and checking the ARP cache on the switch. However, Arista switches, with their Linux foundations, offer a more streamlined approach - the use of the "arping" command.

Technical Terms Defined

Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)

SD-WAN is a suite of network technologies that allows companies to build higher-performance WANs using lower-cost and commercially available Internet access, enabling businesses to partially or wholly replace more expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS

Secure Access Services Edge (SASE)

SASE is a security framework for enabling secure and fast cloud adoption, and helping ensure both users and devices have secure cloud access to applications, data and services anywhere, any time.

Connectivity Transformation

Much how "Digital Transformation" is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business and adopting next gen services like public cloud, "Connectivity Transformation" is the resulting changes in how users and networks evolve to adapt to their own "Digital Transformation" efforts.

Network Automation

Network automation uses programmable logic to manage network resources (routers, switches, firewalls, etc) and services (network security, load balancing, etc). Network automation allows network operations teams to configure, scale, protect, and integrate network infrastructure and application services more quickly than when performed manually by users.
