Downloading a Software Image and Saving a Download Software
You can download a software image to a device or
a group of devices immediately or at a scheduled time. You can save
a software image download operation so that you can combine it with
other operations. For example, you can combine saved download and
install operations using the Task Manager (Saved Operations) and schedule
them to run simultaneously at a scheduled time. You can also ensure
that the downloaded software is intact by verifying that the MD5 checksum
of the downloaded software image matches that of the image stored
Download option is not available for BXOS images.
To download a software image to a device and save
a download software image operation, follow these steps:
In the JUNOScope main window, click Software Management
The Images dialog box appears..
For BXOS images, the Download link is not displayed.
Click the Download link for the software image that you
want to download.
The Download Image dialog box appears.
Select the Group or Select Device(s) option button.
Select the group or devices that you want from the Group
or Select Device(s) list box. Shift + click to select multiple devices
from the Select Device(s) drop-down list box.
Select the protocol that should be used for image download,
from the Select Transfer protocol drop-down list box. JUNOScope
uses the protocol that you select to download the image. The available
options are FTP, SCP, and HTTP. HTTP is selected by default.
To enable image downloads using SCP or FTP, you need to set
the following configuration on your JUNOS device: set system services ssh | ftp
Select the Use JUNOScope IP address for image transfer option if you want the device(s)/group to connect to the JUNOScope
server using the IP address of the JUNOScope server. The device(s)/group
will use the IP address of the JUNOScope server instead of the JUNOScope
Select the Verify MD5 Checksum for downloaded image option if you want to ensure that the downloaded software image
is intact. If you select this option, the MD5 checksum of the downloaded
image is compared with the checksum stored in JUNOScope. If they do
not match, the operation fails and the error message “MD5 checksum
of downloaded image does not match the image in JUNOScope” appears
in the JUNOScope status wizard (Monitor > Status > View Status Records).
In the Comment text box, type an optional descriptive
comment about the software image download that you want to perform.
Select when you want the software image
download to occur by clicking the appropriate option button:
Now—(Default) Performs a software image download
immediately after you confirm it.
Save Operation as—Saves the current operation in
the Settings > Saved Operations table so you can combine that operation
with other JUNOScope operations or run that operation at a later time.
Click the Save Operation as option button, then type an operation
name in the text box.
Select Schedule—Performs a software image download
at the scheduled time interval. Select the schedule that you want
in the schedule table.
The Please Confirm—Download Image dialog box appears
if you selected the Now option.
The Please Confirm—Save Operation dialog box appears
if you selected the Save Operation as option.
Confirm that the download software image or save download
software image options that you selected are correct.
Click Finish to perform the operation that you confirmed.
If you selected the Now option, the software image is
downloaded to the device or group of devices that you specified immediately
If you selected the Save Operation as option, the operation
is saved and listed in the Settings > Saved Operations dialog box.
To view the saved operation, click Settings > Saved Operations. For
more information about saving operations, see Using Task Manager (Saved Operations).
If you selected the Select Schedule option and selected
a schedule, the software image is downloaded when the operation is
scheduled to be run.
When the software image download process is complete,
the Status—View Status Records dialog box appears.
Status—View Status Records dialog box lists the software image
download operation by operation name, operation type, report name,
username, operation status, last updated time, and operation system
log message. The software download operation status can be successful,
failed, writing, pending, rebooting, connecting, or working.
Check the status of the operation that you specified,
then click OK.
