DSM Updates

 

JSA uses Device Support Modules (DSMs) to log and correlate the data that is collected from external log sources, such as firewalls, switches, or routers.

DSMs are regularly updated to ensure that JSA can correctly interpret and parse security event information that is provided by external devices. DSMs can be updated both automatically and manually.

Although JSA devices include native log sending capabilities, several devices require extra configuration, or an agent, or both, to send logs. Configuration varies between device types. You must ensure that the devices are configured to send logs in a supported format.

For a list of supported devices, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Configuring DSMs Guide.

Updating DSMs Automatically

You can automatically download and install DSM updates, which include corrections to parsing issues, scanner changes, and protocol updates.

The Console must be connected to the Internet to receive the updates. If your Console is not connected to the Internet, you must configure an internal update server for your Console to download the files from.

  1. On the navigation menu, Click Admin.
  2. On the navigation menu, click System Configuration.
  3. Click the Auto Update icon.
  4. On the navigation menu, click Change Settings.
  5. From the Auto Update Schedule pane, configure the DSM update frequency. To reduce performance impacts on your system, schedule a large update to run during off-peak hours.
  6. From the Update Types pane, select Auto Install from the DSM, Scanner, Protocol Updates list box.
  7. Click Save.

    For more information about configuring DSM updates, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.

Updating DSMs Manually

Juniper Networks provides DSM updates regularly. By default, updates are automatically downloaded and installed on your system. However, you can manually install DSM updates at any time.

  1. On the navigation menu, Click Admin.
  2. On the navigation menu, click System Configuration.
  3. Click the Auto Update icon.
  4. On the navigation menu, click Check for Updates.

    The system retrieves the new updates. This process might take an extended period. When complete, new updates are listed on the Updates window.

  5. On the toolbar, click Install > DSM, Scanner, Protocol Updates.
  6. Click OK.
