Installing Edge Services Director

 

Before you begin:

  • Edge Services Director is supported on a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance that meets the hardware requirements specified in the Junos Space documentation. The number of devices you plan to manage by using Edge Services Director determines which Junos Space Appliance to use.

  • If Edge Services Director Release 1.0 is installed on the Junos Space Appliance, then you must uninstall it and restart JBoss before installing Edge Services Director Release 1.1.

  • You cannot install Network Director or Connectivity Services Director on the same system as Edge Services Director. Uninstall Network Director or Connectivity Services Director before you install Edge Services Director on your system.

  • Uninstall Junos Space Virtual Control, if it is installed on your Junos Space Network Management Platform. After uninstalling Virtual Control, you must run the clean up script before you proceed with the installation. You can download the cleanup script for Virtual Control from the Junos Space and Junos Space Edge Services Director Download page.

  • Download Edge Services Director Release 1.0 software image to the hard disk or to an SCP server. Open a new browser page, log in to the Juniper software downloads page and download the required Edge Services Director version to either the hard disk or to an SCP server.
