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. 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. The following template describes the package format through the Release 15.1 Junos OS releases:

chef-bundle-client-version_sdk-indicator.juniper-iteration.junos.platform.tgz

and the following template describes the package format for Junos OS Release 16.1R1 and later releases:

chef-client-version_sdk-indicator.juniper-iteration_x86-32.tgz

where:

  • 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).
  • juniper-iteration is the version of Juniper Networks version of the package.
  • platform is the platform microprocessor architecture, powerpc, i386, or x86-32.
