JCS Administration View
The JCS administration view is controlled by JCS supervisors and operators who have access to configuration and settings associated with the hardware and software that reside on the JCS1200 platform. This includes JCS management modules, JCS switch modules, the JCS Routing Engines (blades), JCS media trays, power supplies, and so on.
JCS administration view considerations include:
Types of JCS Users
Users are authenticated by the JCS management module before they can issue JCS commands. Login account configuration determines which commands are available. Two types of Juniper Networks-specific login accounts are available on the JCS:
- Supervisor—Login accounts configured with supervisor privileges enable you to view and enter JCS management module configuration commands such as users and write. You can also view and enter JCS management module monitoring commands.
- Operator—Login accounts configured with operator privileges enable you to view and enter JCS management module operational commands such as info and health. JCS management module configuration commands are not available for operator logins
How Command Targets and User Permissions Impact Views
Views available to JCS users are based on a combination of user login permissions and the target set for a command. For example:
- You can set the command target of the info command to selectively display information about a specific Routing Engine in the JCS chassis, all Routing Engines in the chassis, and so on.
- JCS operators can use the ifconf command to display network interface settings for the JCS Ethernet interfaces. In addition, JCS supervisors can use the ifconf command to change network interface settings.
