Installing and Uninstalling Connectivity Services Director

 

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

  • Upgrading Junos Space

    Connectivity Services Director Release 5.1R1 is supported on Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 19.4R1. 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 add 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 5.1R1 software image to the hard disk or to an SCP server. The SCP server in this context is a Linux server on which the Connectivity Services Director image is stored. You can download Connectivity Services Director software image from Juniper Downloads .

    You can either:

    • Download the image to a remote server by using the temporary download link generated by the software download page. You can use the wget <download-URL> command from the remote server to download the image to the server

      or

    • Download the software image to a local directory.

  • 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.

Note

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 E-Line, IP, and E-LAN; 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 5.1R1, 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.
