    Installing Connectivity Services Director

    Ensure that the following prerequisites are met before you install Connectivity Services Director:

    • Upgrading Junos Space

      Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1 is supported on Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1. If your appliance is running the supported version of Junos Space, you can begin installation of Connectivity Services Director.

      If your appliance is running a Junos Space release that is earlier than the supported release, you must first determine the currently installed Junos Space version and then upgrade Junos Space before installing Connectivity Services Director. For instructions on how to upgrade Junos Space Platform, refer How Do I Upgrade Junos Space?.

      To determine the installed Junos Space version:

      1. Log in to Junos Space by using the default username and password for Junos Space: super and juniper123.

        Junos Space opens the dashboard.

      2. Click the plus symbol (+) next to Administration to expand the Administration menu.
      3. Click Applications to list all of the applications installed.
      4. Note the version of the Network Management Platform or the Network Application Platform. (Some earlier versions of the Network Management Platform were named Network Application Platform.) If the currently installed release is a supported one, you can skip the rest of this procedure; if not, you must upgrade the Network Management Platform to a supported release.
    • Downloading the Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1 software image to the hard disk or to an SCP server. The Connectivity Services Director software image is located at http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/space.html .

      You can either:

      • Save a copy of the link to the software image on your system, or

      • Download the software image to a directory on your system

    • Configuring basic Junos Space settings

      You can configure a Junos Space Appliance as a Junos Space node or as a specialized node used for fault monitoring and performance monitoring (FMPM). For detailed steps to configure a Junos Space Appliance as a Junos Space node, see Configuring a Junos Space Appliance.

      After you deploy a Junos Space Virtual Appliance on a VMware ESX or VMware ESXi server, you must enter basic network and machine information to make your Junos Space Virtual Appliance accessible on the network. You must also increase the virtual machine (VM) drive size. For more information see, Configuring the Basic Settings of a Junos Space Virtual Appliance

    Note: You cannot install Network Director or Edge Services Director on the same system as Connectivity Services Director. You must uninstall Network Director or Edge Services Director before you install Connectivity Services Director on your system.

    After you install Connectivity Services Director, Network Activate, Transport Activate, OAM Insight, and Sync Design are also installed and presented in the same look-and-feel as the Services Activation Director GUI. 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 2.1, 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. Based on your deployment needs and device models to be managed on a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance, you need not separately install applications such as Network Activate or Transport Activate.

    Follow these steps to perform a fresh installation of Connectivity Services Director Release 2.1:

    1. Install Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1.

      See Upgrading Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1 for instructions on installing Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1.

        service jboss stop

      2. Start the watchdog service.

        service jmp-watchdog start

        Note: Starting the watchdog service restarts the JBoss and domain controller services as well.

        It takes up to 20 minutes for the JBoss server to restart.

      To restart the JBoss server in a cluster setup:

      1. Stop the services on the secondary node.

        service jmp-watchdog stop

        service jboss stop

      2. Stop the services on the master node (You can find the VIP hosted node Space > Fabric).

        service jmp-watchdog stop

        service jboss-dc stop

        service jboss stop

      3. Start the services on the master node.

        service jmp-watchdog start

      4. Start the service on the secondary node.

        service jmp-watchdog start

        It takes up to 20 minutes for the JBoss server to come up after the restart.
