Provisioning a Single-Ended E-Line Service
You can create a point-to-point link between the end points of a managed device and an unmanaged device. An unmanaged device is a third-party device. In cases where interoperability with a third-party device is necessary, Junos Space allows you to define the link between a Juniper Networks managed device and the third-party device. You need to specify the IP address and the end point interface name of the unmanaged device. The Junos Space does not validate the information of an unmanaged device. You cannot configure an unmanaged device. The Junos Space pushes the configuration only to managed devices.
You can configure the primary endpoint device as an unmanaged device. With the primary endpoint as an unmanaged device, the following combinations of primary and backup endpoints are supported:
Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and no backup (endpoint Z) device.
Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and backup (endpoint Z) as a managed device.
The following combinations are not supported:
Primary (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device and backup (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device.
Primary (endpoint Z) as a managed device and backup (endpoint Z) as an unmanaged device.
You cannot configure the backup endpoint Z as an unmanaged device using Connectivity Services Director. P2P Resiliency cannot be configured if any one of the endpoints is unmanaged. A validation is performed for the supported combinations of endpoints.
To create a point-to-point link to an end point that is not managed by Junos Space, in the Network Services > Connectivity view pane, select Service Provisioning> Manage Service Orders> New > E-Line. The Manage Service Orders page displays an inventory of all available E-Line service definitions.
- Select the service definition upon which you want to base your service order from the Service Definition field.
- Specify the general/connectivity settings. For details on creating an E-Line service order, see Creating an E-Line Service Order
- Click Next to specify the endpoint settings.
If this end point is N-PE device, select a device from the PE Device. Configure the endpoint settings as mentioned in Creating an E-Line Service Order
If this endpoint is a third-party device, select Unmanaged device from the PE Device.
Fill in the fields as indicated in the table:
Since the endpoint is a third-party device, select Unmanaged device from the list.
Loopback IP Address
Specify the loopback IP address of the third-party device.
Range: 126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52, excluding 127.x.x.x
Specify the end point interface name of the unmanaged device, which is the third-party device.
- Click Next to specify another endpoint settings.
Both the endpoints cannot be a third-party device.
- To finish creating the service order, click Finish.
The functional audit is performed only on the Juniper Networks devices (managed devices). To perform a successful functional audit of an unmanaged device, configure the following attributes of an unmanaged device:
Virtual circuit ID
