Resynchronizing Managed SDGs with the Network
If the network is the system of record, you can resynchronize a managed device at any time. For example, when a managed device is updated by a device administrator from the device's native GUI or CLI, you can resynchronize the device configuration in the Junos Space Network Management Platform database with the physical device. (If Junos Space Network Management Platform is the system of record, this capability is not available.)
To resynchronize a device:
- From the View selector, select Gateway View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
- From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Edge Services Director banner.
The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
- Do either of the following:
Select Services Gateways > Unmanaged Gateway from the task pane. The Unmanaged Devices page is displayed.
Select Services Gateways > Managed Gateway from the task pane. The Managed Devices page is displayed.
- Select the devices you want to resychronize and click
the Re-synch Hosts button above the table of listed service
delivery gateways (SDGs) or SDG pairs.
The Resynchronize Devices pop-up window is displayed.
- Click Confirm.
When a resynchronization job is scheduled to run but another resynchronization job on the same device is in progress, Junos Space Network Management Platform delays the scheduled resynchronization job. The time delay is determined by the damper interval that you set from the application workspace. By default the time delay is 20 seconds. The scheduled job is delayed as long as the other resynchronization job to the same device is in progress. When the job that is currently running finishes, the scheduled resynchronization job starts.
You can check whether a managed device was resynchronized with the network, from the Job Details page. To go to the Job Details page, double-click the ID of the resynchronization job on the Job Management page. The Description column on this page specifies whether the managed device was resynchronized with the network. If the managed device was not resynchronized with the network, the column lists the reason for failure.
