I have followed the link https://devcentral.f5.com/articles/ve-on-vmware-part-1-custom-properties-29787?lc=1 for automating the BIGIP ve provisioning in vmware using custom properties.
But when i login to the BIGIP instance the first time after provisioning it still asks me to finish the configuration by clicking next next till the network tab and then click finish to complete configuration can we skip the process as the same is already done during the provisioning itself.
was able to skip the initial configuration screen that appears after login to the device for the first time by issuing the below command on console
tmsh modify sys db setup.run value false
now will be implementing the same in my provisioing code to be executed via icontrol api.
got this command from an earlier post https://devcentral.f5.com/questions/rest-trying-to-modify-a-sys-db-setuprun
