Requirement: I have 100+ firewalls that I need to deploy into multiple remote locations and wanted to do it with zero-touch provisioning. 


Challenge: For initial deployment, we can PANFWs are coming with factory settings with default IP address, username, and password. Though we could build a bootstrap file by changing the default setting[parameters] and applying it to fw, in the default setting scenario how the zero-touch provisioning is feasible? Basically, the requirement is one firewall rack and stack and power on automatically fetch the bootstrap with the desired configuration and start a report in the network rest of the story can be taken from Panorama or other automation tool.
