Installing Cross Provisioning Platform

Before you begin:

  • You cannot install Network Activate on the same system as Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP). Uninstall Network Activate before you install CPP on your system.
  • Uninstall Junos Space Virtual Control, if it is installed on your Junos Space Network Management Platform. After uninstalling Virtual Control, you must run the cleanup script before you proceed with the installation. You can download the cleanup script for Virtual Control from the Junos Space and Junos Space Cross Provisioning Platform Download page.
  • Download CPP software image to the hard disk or an SCP server. Open a new browser page, log in to the Juniper software downloads page and download the required CPP version to either the hard disk or an SCP server. The CPP software images are located at the Junos Space and Junos Space Cross Provisioning Platform Download page.

To install CPP from the Administration > Applications page of Junos Space:

  1. Click the plus symbol (+) on the top left of the page to add the application.
  2. Click either Upload via HTTP or Upload via SCP and upload the image as follows:
