Network Director Installation Overview


Junos Space Network Director is Juniper Networks’ network management solution that empowers administrators to seamlessly manage Juniper Networks WLC Series Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs), EX Series Ethernet Switches, EX Series switches with ELS, QFX Series switches, MX Series routers with ELS, QFabrics, Junos Fusion, and VMware virtual networks within a Junos Space application. Network Director provides a single interface for managing the entire management life cycle of the network, including configuration, device management, monitoring, fault management, and reporting.

This chapter describes how you can install Network Director, upgrade Network Director, bring your devices under Network Director management.

These installation steps are intended for network operators and administrators who install, configure, and manage Junos switching with EX Series, QFX Series, QFabric, and virtualized devices using Network Director.

Before you install Network Director, you must configure the Junos Space Appliance as a Junos Space node.

You can install Network Director in either Juniper Networks JA2500 Junos Space Hardware Appliance or a Junos Space Virtual Appliance. For details, see Setting up a Junos Space Appliance for Network Director.
