Configure a VRF to be used for file transfers, using service-type

To update the VRF on multiple nodes is possible using the service-types and the CSV api or using XML. An example is given below.

CSV_API.ini addition:

[VrfMgmt]
brief = Enable VRF management for a VRF on a node
Hostname
Vrf_id

A service-type needs to be added with the following contents. (click the image for a larger view)

The following sheet can be used to automate the nodes and the attached VRF to enable the Vrf_management flag. Make sure to match the values of the Client_type, service_class etc. More information on CSV api.
