    Understanding the Brownfield Process

    To support rapid network deployment, Junos Space Network Director enables you to define your network configuration in a set of profiles that you can apply to multiple objects in your network. For example, you can define a Port profile to set up class-of-service (CoS), authentication, firewall filters, and Ethernet switching settings that are appropriate for all access ports in your network that connect to employee desktop VoIP phones.

    Profiles can be created manually from the Network Director user interface or may be created automatically by Network Director when you discover a device. Once a device, that has network configurations, is discovered, Network Director initiates a Brownfield process to read the configuration and create the necessary profiles for all the supported configuration from the discovered device. Network Director initiates the brownfield process immediately after the discovery and the process is transparent to the user.

    Figure 1 displays how the brownfield process works in Network Director.
