Preparing Your Appliance


You must prepare your appliance before you install an JSA Risk Manager appliance.

You must install all necessary hardware and you need an activation key. The activation key is a 24-digit, 4-part, alphanumeric string that you receive from Juniper Networks. You can find the activation key:

  • Printed on a sticker that is placed on your appliance.

  • Included with the packing slip, where all appliances are listed along with their associated keys.

To avoid typing errors, the letter I and the number 1 (one) are treated the same, as are the letter O and the number 0 (zero).

If you do not have an activation key for your JSA Risk Manager appliance, contact Juniper Customer Support (

For information about your appliance, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Hardware Guide.
