Force-Deploying an LSP Service


When a service fails a configuration audit because configuration changes on a PE device do not match the configuration required for the service, you can force-deploy the service to push the configuration to the device.

Force deployment pushes the same configuration to the device that was pushed during the deployment of the service, thus allowing the operator to recover from a state in which the configuration on the device was lost or changed out-of-band.

The validation before generating the configuration for a force-deployed service order will be performed against the current configuration on the device and the configuration is not pushed if the validation fails. If the forced deployment is unable to push the configuration again, then you might need to manually configure the device.

This procedure forces deployment of a service on the network.

You cannot force-deploy an invalid service order.

To schedule a service for forced deployment:

  1. Select Service View from the View Selector. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
  2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Deploy icon in the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. From the Service View pane, which is the left pane in the window, click the plus sign (+) next to Network Services to expand the tree and display the different service types that you can configure.
  4. Click the plus sign (+) beside Tunnel to view services based on protocols, and expand the LSPs tree to select an LSP service.
  5. From the task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage LSP. The top part of the right pane displays the Manage LSP Network Services page, with the table of services, and the bottom part of the right pane displays the Manage Service Deployment page, with the table of service orders.
  6. From the Manage LSP Network Services page, select the check box next to the service you want to forcibly deploy.

    The top pane displays information about the services that have been previously created, such as the name of the service, the functional audit status, the performance management status, and the deployment state of the service. You can modify the properties of the service, conduct a functional or configuration audit, force-deploy or deactivate the service, and view alarms associated with a particular service order for debugging and corrective action. Services can be in one of the following service states:

    • Completed—The service order has been successfully deployed.

    • Scheduled for deployment—The service provisioner has scheduled the service order for deployment.

    • Deployment Failed—An attempted service deployment was not successfully completed or failed an audit.

    • In Progress—The Connectivity Services Director application is in the process of deploying the service.

    • Requested—The service provisioner has created the service order, but has not yet attempted to deploy it or schedule it for deployment.

    • Invalid—The service order is not valid.

  7. Open the Actions menu and click Force Deploy Service.

    The Schedule Force Deployment window appears.

  8. To deploy the service immediately, select Force deploy now, and click OK .

    To deploy the service at a later time, select Force deploy later, select a date and time for deployment, then click OK.

    The time field specifies the time kept by the server, but in the time zone of the client.

    After scheduling the service order for deployment, the provisioning software begins validating the service order.

  9. Use the Jobs workspace to monitor the outcome of the forced deployment.
