    Prerequisites for Prestaging Devices in Connectivity Services Director

    Before you can perform prestaging on your network devices, each device must meet specific configuration requirements, and must be brought under Junos Space management through device discovery.

    The following configuration requirements must be met before beginning the provisioning process. Otherwise, service deployment fails:

    • MPLS must run on each N-PE device and on each P device.

    • LDP signaling must be established between N-PE devices that participate in the same point-to-point Ethernet (LDP) service.

    • MPBGP must run on each N-PE device that participates in a Layer 2 multipoint or Layer 3 full mesh service.

    • To run Layer 2, Layer 3, or VPLS services on an N-PE device, ensure that an autonomous system (AS) number is configured on the device.

    Before you can prestage devices, you must perform device discovery to import all Juniper Networks devices on your network that Junos Space can manage. The Connectivity Services Director prestaging workspace works on devices that have already been discovered and imported into the Junos Space database, but have not yet been prestaged.

    The VPLS service needs to be enabled in a network device, to make the static pseudowire functionality active in the device. You can activate the static pseudowire functionality by configuring the network device through the CLI window. You need to enter the CLI configuration mode of a network element and run the command

    set protocols vpls static-vpls no-tunnel-services

    commit

    If the device is not configured through CLI, a warning message appears in the application server log, that is the JBOSS Log:

    <Device name> should be configured with static VPLS no tunnel service rule.

    To discover the roles of the various network elements configured:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.

    2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.

    3. In the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Prestage Devices > Prestage Devices.

    4. Click Manage Device Roles and from the drop-down list, select Discover Roles to retrieve the roles of the devices. A dialog box is displayed with the job ID of the discovery job that is created to obtain the latest roles of the devices.

    To remove the role of the network elements configured:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.

    2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.

    3. From the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Prestage Devices > Prestage Devices.

    5. Click Manage Device Roles and from the drop-down list, select Unassign Role to remove the role capability of a network element. You are prompted to confirm the operation. If you click OK, a request is submitted to remove the latest role of the network element or device.

    The device is removed from the list of network elements displayed on the Devices Chart page.

    To resynchronize the role of the network elements configured:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.

    2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.

    3. From the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Prestage Devices > Prestage Devices.

    5. Click Manage Device Roles and from the drop-down list, select Re-sync Role Capability resynchronize the role capability of a network element. You are prompted to confirm the operation. If you click OK, request is submitted to retrieve the latest role of the network element or device.

    The role is re-synced with the same device now.
