Installation and Configuration Notes

  • For devices running Junos Automation Enhancements, the Chef bundle package is included in the Junos OS software and installed when you install the Junos OS software. For instructions on how to install the Junos OS software with Junos Automation Enhancements, see Installing Junos OS Software with Junos Automation Enhancements .
  • For devices that are not running Junos Automation Enhancements, you must install the Chef bundle package on the device. For more information, see the Chef for Junos OS Getting Started Guide at the Chef for Junos OS, Release 11.10 website.
  • Regardless of how the Chef client is installed on the device, you must configure the Chef client on the Juniper Networks device that is running Junos OS before you can use it to manage the device. For more information, see the Chef for Junos OS Getting Started Guide at the Chef for Junos OS, Release 11.10 website.
  • If the Chef client running on your platform has a Juniper Networks version 1.1 or greater (for example, chef-bundle-11.10.4_1.1.junos.i386.tgz), the Junos OS configuration that is generated by the Chef client from the netdev_lag resource definition includes the normally hidden apply-macro statement. For example:
    ae0 {        apply-macro "netdev_lag[:links]" {             ge-0/0/0;            ge-0/0/1;        }        unit 0;    }

    This is not a configuration error; you can ignore it.
