Viewing Current Configuration

From Network Director, you can view the configuration running on a device and those that are pending deployment by using the following options respectively:

  • Show Current Configuration
  • Configuration or Pending Configuration Window

Using the Show Current Configuration

The Show Current Configuration task shows the entire running configuration of the selected device in Network Director. This task is available in the Logical, Location, and Device panes.

To view a device's current configuration:

  1. Click Build or Deploy in the Network Director banner.
  2. Select the device in the View pane.
  3. Select Device Management > Show Current Configuration in the Tasks pane.

    The device’s current configuration displays in the main window.

Using the Configuration or Pending Configuration Window

Use the Pending Configuration window to view the configuration changes that will be deployed to a device when a job runs. This task is available under Deploy Configuration Changes when you are in Deploy mode.

After an operator creates change request for a device configuration, the change request is submitted to the approvers mentioned in the approvers list. To view the pending configuration of the device:

  1. Approver selects the change request and clicks on Approve Change Requests .

    The Change Request Details page opens.

  2. Clicking View under Configuration column shows the device pending configuration changes in XML and CLI format:
    • Select the XML View tab to view the configuration changes in XML format. This view shows the configuration (XML format) that will be deployed to the device’s Device Management Interface (DMI), which is used to remotely manage devices.
    • Select the CLI View tab to view the configuration changes in CLI format. This view shows the Junos configuration statements that will be deployed to the device.

      In both views, the content is color-coded for easier interpretation:

      • Black text indicates configuration that is already active on the device, and which will not be changed if you deploy.
      • Green text indicates configuration that will be added if you deploy.
      • Red text indicates configuration that will be removed if you deploy.
