Installing the NSM Plug-In

 

Use SSH to install the Juniper Networks NSM plug-in on your JSA console.



About this task



The target directory (/opt/qradar/conf/webplugins/117/) must exist on your JSA system. After you install the plug-in, the target directory is automatically created when you log in to the JSA user interface and click the NSM Settings Plug-in icon on the Admin tab

If multiple users or remote users view the Admin tab, refresh your browser to display the NSM Plug-in Settings icon to be displayed.

To Install the NSM Plug-In follow the steps given below :

  1. Download the JSA ISO from the following website:

    https://support.juniper.net/support/downloads/

  2. Copy the ISO file to your JSA console.
  3. Using SSH, log in to JSA as the root user.
  4. Type the following command to mount the JSA ISO file:
    mount -o loop <path to the JSA ISO> /media/cdrom

    Where <path to the JSA ISO> is the directory path to where the installation ISO is stored.

  5. Type the following command to install the NSM plug-in rpm:
    rpm -Uvh /media/cdrom/post/qradar/nsm_plugin-<release>-<build>.x86_64.rpm

    Where <release> is the related JSA release and <build> is the related JSA build number.

    The package manager installs the NSM plug-in rpm.

    Note

    Type the following command to find the rpm:

    ls -la /media/cdrom/post/qradar | grep nsm_plugin
  6. To create the target directory:
    1. Log in to the JSA user interface:

      https://<IP Address>

      Where <IP Address> is the IP address of the JSA system.

    2. Click the Admin tab.

    3. Click the NSM Plug-in Settings icon.

  7. Using SSH, log in to JSA as the root user.
  8. Choose the following option:
    • To connect JSA to Juniper NSM server, you must copy a certificate to JSA, go to Step 9.

    • To connect JSA to any other version of Juniper NSM, go to Step 11.

  9. Type the following command to copy the server certificate from your Juniper NSM server to the JSA console:
    scp root@<NSM IP address>:/usr/netscreen/GuiSvr/lib/webproxy/conf/server.crt /opt/qradar/conf/webplugins/117/nsmPlugin.cert

    Where <NSM IP address> is the IP address of the Juniper Networks NSM server. The server.crt file is copied from the Juniper Networks NSM server and renamed to nsmPlugin.cert on your JSA console.
