Configuring Quagga / FRR to Work With IP Fabric

When running discovery, IP Fabric needs to connect directly to the device console. Because of that, to discover Quagga/FRR devices, a separate user with a specific shell needs to be created on a device.

The Quagga / FRR shell usually runs in /usr/bin/vtysh.

A new user with direct access to the Quagga / FRR shell needs to be created as follows in the bash:

useradd -s /usr/bin/vtysh username

Afterwards, you will be prompted to set up a password. Add this username and password to IP Fabric credentials used for discovery.
