Next Steps

After your devices are up and synchronized, much of the function in Connectivity Services Director is automatically enabled. However, there are a few additional tasks that you will need to perform to use all the features of Connectivity Services Director. We suggest that you explore:

  • Set up a Location View

    Location View is one of seven different views, or perspectives, in your network. In Location View, you can manage devices based on a site. Here you define the buildings, floors, wiring closets, and outdoor areas. You can upload floor maps for easy reference and assign devices to a specific spot.

    To set up a Location View:

    1. Click Build in the Connectivity Services Director banner.
    2. Select Location View in the View pane to the far left of the screen.
    3. Click Setup Locations in the Tasks pane to start setting up your location, buildings, floors, racks, wiring closets, and outdoor areas.
  • Enable Trap Forwarding and Alarms for Fault Management

    A key component of Connectivity Services Director is the feature to diagnose problems with precision and ease. Connectivity Services Director correlates multiple traps from the same device to a single alarm.

    You must complete device discovery and the devices must be up before you can enable trap forwarding. Traps are not enabled by default; you need to enable them after device discovery.

    1. Use Set SNMP Trap Configuration in the Tasks pane of Deploy mode to configure your device to send SNMP traps to Connectivity Services Director.
    2. Review the list of alarms in Preferences, located in the Connectivity Services Director banner. All alarms are enabled by default, but you might want to disable those alarms that are not pertinent to your installation. You can also change the severity of an alarm by using Preferences.
  • Set up users

    After you install Connectivity Services Director, there is only one username defined: super with the default password, juniper123.

    You have the ability to set up users with different Connectivity Services Director privileges. New Connectivity Services Director users are set up in Junos Space and follow the roles and privileges as defined in Junos Space. For a complete discussion on how to properly set up users, see Understanding Connectivity Services Director User Administration.

  • Learn what you can do with Connectivity Services Director

    There are two ways you can become familiar with the functions and features of Connectivity Services Director:
