The JUNOScope system settings component lets the administrator set up the software to work with the following information.
Specify the authentication information (login and password for accessing a device). The JUNOScope software administrator can chose to have sensitive data encrypted at export. For more information, see Setting Up Authentication Information.
Specify the access method (JUNOScript access protocol to connect to the JUNOScript server running on a device) configured on a device for remotely connecting to that device from the JUNOScope software. The JUNOScope software administrator can chose to have sensitive data encrypted at export. For more information, see Setting Up Access Methods.
Connect to and discover information about devices on the network. The JUNOScope software performs operations on devices, such as archive, display, compare, or restore. Additionally, the JUNOScope software scans devices for inventory information. You can associate a device with one or more text labels used to statically organize a group of devices for JUNOScope operations. For more information, see Setting Up Devices.
Group devices for performing immediate or scheduled operations using criteria, such as device name, model, hostname, comment, or label (see Labels). For more information, see Setting Up Groups.
Labels, in free text format, provide a way to statically associate a group of devices. A label must have a unique name, such as Edge; an optional category name, such as Router Type, so you can logically organize labels; and an optional comment to help you understand the label purpose. You can associate an existing label with one or more devices. You can use a label as a rule in the group criteria wizard for setting up groups of devices. For more information about setting up labels, see Setting Up Labels. For more information about associating a device with a label, see Setting Up Devices. For more information about using a label to create a group, see Setting Up Groups.
Specify the time or interval when you want the JUNOScope software to perform operations on one or more devices, such as archive, display, or compare a device configuration, or scan device hardware, software, or licensed feature inventory. For more information, see Setting Up Schedules.
Provides the following user authentication:
Set up RADIUS server host information so that users with RADIUS accounts can log in to JUNOScope. The JUNOScope administrator can also specify the port to which all user authentication activity and privileged operation audit records are sent. For more information, see Setting Up RADIUS Configuration.
Import or export required JUNOScope database data from or to another JUNOScope server.
The JUNOScope administrator can now export all JUNOScope data, with the following options for sensitive data:
The JUNOScope administrator can import sensitive data by supplying a key if the data was exported using the “ encrypt sensitive data and provide key at import time” method. Select an import method to be used if a conflict occurs between existing records stored in the JUNOScope server and imported records when synchronizing JUNOScope settings imported from multiple servers. The available import method options include ignore, merge, and override.
For more information, see Importing and Exporting All Settings Data.
You can save operations such as archive, restore, and inventory scan from devices on the network and reuse them to build compound operations. You can specify the order in which you want these compound operations to be executed. Reusing operations reduces production time and errors.
Use the Task Manager (Setting > Saved Operations) to create compound operations from archive, restore, or inventory operations that you save to reuse later. From Task Manager (the Saved Operations page), you can add compound operations, specify their execution order, run operations in real time or as part of an existing schedule, view simple operation settings. edit the order in which compound operations run (concurrently or sequentially), and delete operations.
