    Device Inventory Overview

    You manage the device inventory from the Devices workspace in Junos Space Network Management Platform. The inventory of a device in the Junos Space Platform database is generated and stored when the device is first discovered and synchronized with the Junos Space Platform database. After the synchronization, the device inventory in the Junos Space Platform database matches the inventory on the device.

    If either the physical (hardware) or logical (configuration) inventory on the device is changed, then the inventory on the device is no longer synchronized with the inventory of the device in the Junos Space Platform database. However, Junos Space Platform automatically triggers a resynchronization job when a configuration change request commit or out-of-band CLI commit operation occurs on a managed device.

    You can also manually resynchronize the Junos Space Platform database with the physical device by using the Resynchronize with Network workflow from the Devices workspace on the Junos Space Platform user interface.

    If Junos Space Platform is the system of record, the database values have precedence over any out-of-band changes to the network device configuration, and neither manual nor automatic resynchronization is available.

    You can perform the following tasks related to the device inventory from the Devices workspace:

    • List the device inventory to view information about the hardware and software components of each device that Junos Space Platform manages.
    • View and acknowledge the inventory changes on the devices.
    • View information about the service contract or end-of-life status for a part.
    • View the location and ship-to-address of a device if address groups are configured in Service Now.
    • View the operational and administrative statuses of the physical interfaces of the devices.
    • View the software and license inventory on the devices.
    • Export the physical and software inventory for use in other applications, such as those used for asset management.
    • View information about the scripts associated with or executed on the interfaces of devices.
    • Troubleshoot problems on devices.
    • If the network is the system of record, resynchronize the network devices managed by Junos Space Platform with the Junos Space Platform database.

    Inventory for Aggregation and Satellite Devices

    You can discover and manage an MX Series router configured as an aggregation device in Junos Space Platform. You can view the physical inventory of both the aggregation and satellite devices, cascade ports on the aggregation device, Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPC) slots to which the satellite devices are mapped, and satellite software packages and software upgrade groups with which the satellite devices are associated. For more information about aggregation devices, satellite devices, and Junos Fusion technology, refer to the Junos Fusion documentation.

    A Junos Fusion setup with an MX240 router connected to three satellite devices discovered on Junos Space Platform displays the following details on Junos Space Platform:

    • Mode of the aggregation device and the number of satellite devices connected to the aggregation device on the Device Management page. For more information, refer to Viewing Managed Devices.
    • Physical inventory on the View Physical Inventory page. View the physical inventory of satellite devices associated with the FPC slots and the satellite alias name of the satellite device. For example, FPC slot 100 is associated with a QFX5100 device and FPC slots 101 and 103 are each associated with two EX4300 switches. Satellite alias name of the QFX5100 device is qfx5100-48s-02 and EX4300 switches are ex4300-48s-02 and ex4300-48s-05.
    • Cascade ports on the aggregation device and the management IP addresses of the satellite devices on the View Physical Interfaces page. For example, the MX240 router connects to QFX5100 through xe-0/0/2 and EX4300 switches through xe-2/0/0 and xe-0/0/3.
    • Satellite software packages and software upgrade groups on the View Software Inventory page. For example, grp_mojito satellite software upgrade group associated with the 15.1-20151224_s4_linux_44.1.0 software package.
