Upgrading Junos Space Network Management Platform

If your appliance is running the supported version of Junos Space Platform, you can skip this procedure and begin the installation of Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP).

Note: For more information about the supported version of Junos Space Platform, see the corresponding release notes of CPP.

If your appliance is running a Junos Space Platform release that is earlier than the supported release, you need to upgrade Junos Space Platform before installing CPP.

To determine the Junos Space Platform release version and to upgrade Junos Space Platform to releases prior to Release 16.1R1:

  1. Identify the version of the installed Junos Space Platform:
    1. Log in to Junos Space Platform by using the default username and password for Junos Space Platform: super and juniper123.

      Junos Space Platform opens the dashboard.

    2. Click the plus symbol (+) next to Administration to expand the Administration menu.
    3. Click Applications to list all of the applications installed.
    4. Note the version of the Junos Space Platform or the Network Application Platform. (Some earlier versions of the Junos Space Platform were named Network Application Platform.) If the currently installed release is a supported one, you can skip the rest of this procedure; if not, you must upgrade the Junos Space Platform to a supported release.
  2. Determine how many releases you need to install to bring the software up to minimum requirements.

    Junos Space Platform supports upgrades from the preceding two versions. For example, Junos Space Platform Release 15.1 supports upgrading from Release 14.1 or 13.3. Upgrades from releases still earlier require multiple steps.

  3. Open a new browser page, log in to the Juniper customer support portal, and download the required Junos Space Platform version to either the hard disk or to an SCP server. The Junos Space Platform software images are located at https://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/?p=space.
  4. Return to your Junos Space Platform session after the download is completed.
  5. Upgrade Junos Space Platform to a supported release.

    Complete installation steps are provided at How Do I Upgrade Junos Space?
