Deactivating a Service
This procedure disables a service for a particular protocol that you have previously created on the network. By disabling a service, the traffic processing for the traversed packets is impacted. In certain network topologies, you might require a service-related settings to be disabled for a certain period to perform troubleshooting or modification to the traffic-handling method, and you might want to reactivate a disabled service later when you have completed network maintenance and analysis work. In such a case, it might be beneficial to use the deactivation functionality for a service. When you disable a service, the configuration attributes associated with such a service are deactivated and commented out in the device settings. The deactivated service is propagated to the devices associated with the service order. To disable a service, the service must not contain any pending or uncommitted changes. Also, the service must be in the Deployed or Re-Activated state.
To modify a service order, it must not be in the Deactivated state.
To deactivate a service:
- Select Service View from the View Selector. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
- 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.
- 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.
- Click the plus sign (+) beside Connectivity to view services
based on protocols.
Expand the IP Services tree to select an IP service.
Expand the E-Line Services tree to select an E-Line service.
Expand the E-LAN Services tree to select an E-LAN service.
- From the task pane, select Service Provisioning >
Deploy Services. The top part of the right pane displays the
Manage Network Services page, with the table of services, and the
bottom part of the right pane displays the Manage Service Orders page,
with the table of service orders.
In Build mode of Service View, from the View pane, if you select the Network Services node and do not expand the Network Services > Connectivity tree, the top pane displays a pie chart that enables you to view and examine the different services configured for devices, and the types of service protocols configured. The Services by Type graph displays the count of services for each type of service definition. Mouse over each segment of the pie to view the number corresponding to the percentage of service orders for each of the charts. This chart provides a visual overview of customers and service orders on your network, and enables you to quickly access related and commonly needed information. For example, you can check for failed service orders and then access a list of failed requests so you can begin to take restoration measure.
- From the Manage Network Services page, select the check box next to the service you want to deactivate.
- Click the down arrow on the Action menu, above the table of listed services, and select Deactivate to disable the selected service. A dialog box is displayed prompting you to confirm your action.
- Do one of the following in the Confirmation dialog box:
To deactivate the service immediately, select Deactivate now, and click Yes. If you click Yes, a pending change request is created for each selected service. Alternatively, if you click No, the deactivate operation is discarded.
To deactivate the service at a later time, select Deactivate later, and 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 deactivation, the provisioning software begins validating the service order.
- Use the Jobs workspace to monitor the outcome of the deployment.
