Viewing the Device Inventory Page


The Device Inventory page lists devices managed by Network Director and provides basic information about the devices, such as IP address and current operating status. The Device Inventory page is available in Build and Deploy mode and is the default landing page for Build mode.

The scope you have selected in the View pane and the network view that you have selected from the View selector determines which devices are listed in the Device Inventory page. For example:

  • If you are in the Logical View and select My Network, all devices managed by Network Director are listed.

  • If you are in the Datacenter View and select Network Devices under a data center, only the network devices that are part of that data center are displayed.

  • If you select a building in Location view, only those devices assigned to that building (including the floors and closets in the building) are listed.

  • If you select a wireless LAN controller, only that wireless LAN controller and any access points it manages are listed.


If you have configured access points using the Manage Access Point task but have not yet deployed the configuration on the wireless LAN controller, the Device Inventory page does not list those access points.

The Device Inventory page provides three pie charts that summarize the status of the devices in your selected scope:

  • Devices by Family—Indicates the proportion of devices in each device family.

  • Connection State—Shows the proportion of devices that are up or down. In this chart, Virtual Chassis count as one device.

  • Configuration State—Shows the proportion of devices in each configuration state. See the Config State entry in Table 1 for definitions of the configuration states.

Mouse over a pie segment to view the actual number of devices and the percentage represented by that pie segment.

Table 1 describes the fields in the Device Inventory table.

Table 1: Fields in the Device Inventory Table




Configured name of the device or IP address if no hostname is configured.

IP Address

IP Address of the device.

Serial Number

Serial number of device chassis.


Model number of the device.

OS Version

Operating system version running on the device.

Device Family

Device family of the device:

  • JUNOS-EX for EX Series switches

  • JUNOS for Campus Switching ELS

  • JUNOS-QFX for QFX Series switches and QFabric members

  • JUNOS-QF for QFabric systems

  • MSSOS for WLC Series wireless LAN controllers

  • WLC-AP for access points managed by WLC Series wireless LAN controllers

Device Type

Type of the device:

  • AP—Wireless LAN access point

  • Fabric Member—QFabric member switch

  • QFabric—QFabric system

  • Switch—Standalone switch

  • VC—Virtual Chassis primary

  • VC Member—Virtual Chassis member switch

  • WLC—Wireless LAN controller

  • XRE—External Routing Engine for EX8200 Virtual Chassis

Connection State

Connection status of the device in Network Director:

  • UP—Device is connected to Network Director.

  • DOWN—Device is not connected to Network Director.

  • N/A—Access point state is unavailable to Network Director.

Config State

Displays the configuration status of the device:

  • In Sync—The configuration on the device is in sync with the Network Director configuration for the device.

  • Out Of Sync—The configuration on the device does not match the Network Director configuration for the device. This state is usually the result of the device configuration being altered outside of Network Director.

    You cannot deploy configuration on a device from Network Director when the device is Out Of Sync. To resolve this state, use the Resynchronize Device Configuration task in Deploy mode.

  • Sync failed—An attempt to resynchronize an Out Of Sync device failed.

  • Synchronizing—The device configuration is in the process of being resynchronized.

  • N/A—The device is down or is an access point.

Manageability State

Displays if the device is directly manageable or not.

This is a hidden field. To display the Manageability State field, click any column, click the down arrow to expand the list, select Columns from the list, and then enable Manageability State.
