Installation and Upgrade Instructions


Before you install Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1, ensure that the Junos Space Network Management Platform is of the required release number with the latest patch installed.

Note: We recommend that you restart the JBoss server after you install Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1.

The software image for Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1 enables you to install the Connectivity Services Director application. Also, Network Activate, Transport Activate, OAM Insight, and Sync Design are installed and presented in the same look-and-feel as the Services Activation Director GUI, after you install Connectivity Services Director. The Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs for Connectivity Services Director are installed along with the GUI.

When you install Connectivity Services Director, the single application package installs the capabilities for configuring network services, such as point-to-point, Layer 3 VPN, and VPLS; configuring MPLS and RSVP label-switched path (LSP) services; configuring Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and synchronous Ethernet services; configuring the Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM ) functionality; and configuring CoS profiles. For Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1, you can also access the Services Activation Director GUI to launch workspaces to configure functionalities that are not available in the Connectivity Services Director GUI. You need not separately install the different applications, such as Network Activate or Transport Activate, based on your deployment needs and device models to be managed, on a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance that satisfies the hardware requirements.

New Installation Instructions for Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1

Before you start the installation, ensure the following:

  • Connectivity Services Director is supported on a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance that meets the hardware requirements specified in the Junos Space documentation. The Junos Space Appliance that suits your requirement is determined by the number of devices you plan to manage by using the network management application.
  • Network Director or Edge Services Director cannot be installed on the same system as Connectivity Services Director. Uninstall Network Director or Edge Services Director before you install Connectivity Services Director on your system.
  • When you back up the database of a Junos Space Appliance by using the Junos Space Network Application Platform database backup-and-restore facility, all the data maintained by the Junos Space Platform and installed Junos Space applications on the appliance is backed up. If your appliance contains a Junos Space application, such as Service Now, that you do not want to use in your network after upgrading to a different version of Junos Space Platform, you must ensure that you uninstall the application before you perform a backup. This is required because all the backed-up-data is restored when you use the restore utility to reapply the data after an upgrade operation. As a result, if your device was previously installed with a Junos Space application that you have not reinstalled after upgrading Junos Space Platform, restoring the backed up data causes undefined behavior because the backup in such a scenario also contains data of applications that you have not reinstalled.
  • A prescribed order is always required for the installation or upgrade of Connectivity Services Director.

  1. Download and install Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1.
  2. Install Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1R1.
