Importing RingMaster Data to Network Director
You can use the Import RingMaster Data task in the System Settings to import data from the network plan that is active in RingMaster. A network plan is a repository for all hardware, site, and configuration details for a single or multi-site wireless network. It can contain wireless network data that spans multiple sites or campuses, which include one or more buildings and associated floors, and possibly outdoor areas.
Network Director uses this data to discover devices, build profiles, configure the Location view, build the Topology view (including a floor plan, if one is defined in the network plan), and to assign devices to various entities in Location and Topology views.
Before you import RingMaster data to Network Director:
Ensure that you have the correct network plan activated in RingMaster.
Ensure that the RingMaster server is up and is accessible through the network.
If your RingMaster server uses any port other than Port 443, then you must open that port from the Junos Space Network Management Platform server.
To import RingMaster data to Network Director:
- From the Tasks menu in the Logical View, Location View, Device View or the Custom Group View, click Device Discovery > Import RingMaster Data.
- Specify the RingMaster server details and user credentials of the user who has administrative access to the RingMaster server, in the appropriate fields.
- Click Import. Network Director uses the details that you specified in this page to connect to RingMaster and start importing data.
After you click Import, Network Director performs the following tasks:
Imports the list of controllers and access points that are managed by the RingMaster server that you specified.
Initiates discovery of these controllers and access points.
Reads the configuration of the discovered devices.
Creates the necessary profiles based on the device configuration.
Assigns profiles to devices.
Performs location setup based on the location data that is available in the network plan.
Assigns devices to locations.
Imports floor plan, if defined, to the topology view.
You can use the Job Management page to track the progress of each of these tasks.
