Supported Devices and Junos OS Releases

 

Chef for Junos OS Release 11.10 must be used only with the devices running the Junos OS release specified in Table 1. Table 1 also shows which installation package that we recommend you use to install the Chef client. You can download the package or bundle at Chef for Junos Software Download. On switches running Junos OS with Junos Automation Enhancements, you do not need to install the Chef client because it is installed with the Junos OS software. For more information, see Overview of Junos Automation Enhancements.

The template for the Chef Bundles package format for devices running Junos OS with Junos Automation Enhancements is as follows:

  • Release 15.1 Junos OS—

    chef-bundle-<client-version>_<sdk-indicator>.<juniper-iteration>.junos.<platform>.tgz

  • Release 16.1R1 Junos OS—

    chef-<client-version>_<sdk-indicator>.<juniper-iteration>_x86-32.tgz

  • Release 18.2R1 and later releases of Junos OS—

    chef-<platform>-<chef version>_<SDK indicator>.<Release count>.tgz

where:

  • platform is the platform microprocessor architecture, powerpc, i386, or x86-32.

  • chef version or client-version is the version of the Chef client (for example, 11.10.4).

  • SDK indicator indicates the Junos OS SDK infrastructure used to create the package. A 1 indicates the Junos SDK; a 2 indicates the Junos Extension Toolkit (JET).

  • Release count or juniper-iteration indicate the version of Juniper Networks version of the package.
