After your devices are up and synchronized, much of the function in Edge Services Director is automatically enabled. However, there are a few additional tasks that you will need to perform to use all the features of Edge Services Director. We suggest that you explore:
Set up a Location View
Location View is one of seven different views, or perspectives, in your network. In Location View, you can manage devices based on a site. Here you define the buildings, floors, wiring closets, and outdoor areas. You can upload floor maps for easy reference and assign devices to a specific spot.
To set up a Location View:
- Click Build in the Edge Services Director banner.
- Select Location View in the View pane to the far left of the screen.
- Click Setup Locations in the Tasks pane to start setting up your location, buildings, floors, racks, wiring closets, and outdoor areas.
Enable Trap Forwarding and Alarms for Fault Management
A key component of Edge Services Director is the feature to diagnose problems with precision and ease. Edge Services Director correlates multiple traps from the same device to a single alarm.
You must complete device discovery and the devices must be up before you can enable trap forwarding. Traps are not enabled by default; you need to enable them after device discovery.
Set up users
After you install Edge Services Director, there is only one username defined: super with the default password, juniper123.
You have the ability to set up users with different Edge Services Director privileges. New Edge Services Director users are set up in Junos Space and follow the roles and privileges as defined in Junos Space. For a complete discussion on how to properly set up users, see Understanding Edge Services Director User Administration.
