So in order to use NETCONF/YANG with the 9800 controller you need to set it up first. Like most things with a wireless contoller you can do this via the CLI or WebUI so we detail each here:
Configuring NETCONF/YANG via WebUI
From the side menu select Administration
Under Netconf Yang Configuration mark it as enabled and note the port its configured to, by default its 830. I recommend not changing it unless you have to.
Configuring NETCONF/YANG via CLI
So from the CLI its a rather simple command to enable NETCONF/YANG
And then to verifiy that its been enabled you just do a show command. If netconf-yang is running, all the processes except gnmib should be UP state
So we now have the 9800 ready to access via NETCONF. In the next part we will look at how to use the Advanced Netconf Explorer.
