Viewing N-PE Devices


You can view network devices that have been assigned the N-PE role or provider (P) role.

The following topic provides a procedure for viewing N-PE devices:

Viewing N-PE Devices in a Table

To view N-PE devices in a table:

  1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
  2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. From the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Prestage Devices > Prestage Devices.

    The Devices Chart page displays the following information about all N-PE devices on your network:

    • Name—The assigned device name.

    • Roles—The role assigned to the device.

    • Management address—The IP address to which the Junos Space fabric connects to the device.

    • Loopback address—The IP address type used by a device to send a packet to itself.

  4. To view more device details and UNI information, double-click the table row for the device. Alternatively, select a service, and click Device Details at the top of the table. The NPE Details window appears. The detailed view lists all UNIs discovered on the device with the applied VLAN pool profile and includes the following device information:
    • Name—The name assigned to the device

    • Version—Operating system firmware version running on the device. For example, 13.1X49D29.1.

    • Platform—Device model number or the platform type of the discovered device. For example, MX480. •

    • Loopback address—The IP address type used by a device to send a packet to itself.

    • Connection status—up or down.

    • Service capability—N-PE device role: L2 or L3.

    The following tabs are displayed:

    • UNI—All assigned user-to-network interfaces (UNIs) on the device with the applied VLAN pool profile. “0” in the Encapsulation field means that no encapsulation has been applied and the UNI is available for allocation.

    • NNI—All the assigned network-to-network interfaces (NNIs) on the device. Also, the encapsulation typesdefined for the NNI interfaces are shown.

    • Admin Groups—Names of the administrative groups configured for the interfaces on the device. Administrative groups, also known as link coloring or resource class, are manually assigned attributes that describe the “color” of links, such that links with the same color conceptually belong to the same class. You can use administrative groups to implement a variety of policy-based LSP setups. Administrative groups are meaningful only when constrained-path LSP computation is enabled.

    • Path—The path name, IP address, and type are shown.
