Idea is to provision mds switches based on datacenter specifications. Since
the template would be consistent I can generate multiple configs depending
on what dc yaml is passed.

We dont use ansible here so I have already written a python script usin
netmiko to connect, scp the config to startup-config and the  reload the
device.

Only missing peice right now is generating thw config.
