Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switch

 

The Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switch DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog.

The Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switch DSM supports Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches running Junos OS. Before you can integrate JSA with a Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switch, you must configure your Juniper EX Series Switch to forward syslog events.

  1. Log in to the Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switch command-line interface (CLI).
  2. Type the following command:

    configure

  3. Type the following command:

    set system syslog host <IP address> <option> <level>

    Where:

    • <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA.

    • <level> is info, error, warning, or any.

    • <option> is one of the following options from Table 1.
