Subject RE: NetworkElements: configure the provider to enable the provider?
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 17:25:24 GMT
So to get around this limitation, should we be looking at making appropriate changes to deployDataCenter.py
to not try to add NS device if it's not supplied? The test would take care anyway of adding
the device and configuring the provider.
Thoughts?
