    Adding a Junos Space Application

    The administrator can add a new Junos Space application while Junos Space Network Management Platform is still running.

    To upgrade Junos Space applications, see Upgrading a Junos Space Application.

    Adding an application to the Junos Space Platform server is a two-step process:

    1. Upload the application to the Junos Space Platform server.
    2. Install the uploaded application.

    Uploading the Junos Space Application

    To upload a Junos Space application:

    1. Ensure that the Junos Space application you want to add is downloaded from the Juniper Networks software download site to the local client file system:

      https://www.juniper.net/support/products/space/#sw

    2. Select Administration > Applications and click the Add Application icon.

      The Add Application page appears. If you have not uploaded any applications, the page is blank.

    3. Upload the new application by performing one of the following steps:
      1. Click Upload via HTTP.

        The Software File dialog box appears.

        1. Type the name of the application file or click Browse to navigate to where the new Junos Space application file is located on the local file system.
        2. Click Upload. This action might take a while. Wait until the application is uploaded.

          If you are trying to upload an application that is not supported by Junos Space Platform 14.1R2, then Junos Space Platform displays the following error message:
          Current platform version does not support this software version.

          The Application Management Job Information dialog box appears. Go to step 4 to confirm whether the application is uploaded successfully.

      2. Click Upload via SCP.

        The Upload Software via SCP dialog box appears. Add the Secure Copy credentials to upload the Junos Space Platform application image from a remote server to Junos Space.

        1. In the Username field, enter your username.
        2. In the Password field, enter your password.
        3. In the Confirm password field, enter your password again to confirm the password.
        4. In the Machine IP field, enter the host IP address.

          Note:

          • Depending on whether the Junos Space fabric is configured with only IPv4 addresses or both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, Junos Space Platform allows you to enter an IPv4 address or either an IPv4 or IPv6 address respectively for the SCP server.
          • The IPv4 and IPv6 addresses that you use must be valid addresses. Refer to http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space for the list of restricted IPv4 addresses and http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space for the list of restricted IPv6 addresses.
        5. In the Software File Path field, enter the path name of the Junos Space application file.

          For example, /root/<image-name>.img.

        6. Click Upload. This action might take a while. Wait until the application is uploaded.

          If you are trying to upload an application that is not supported by Junos Space Platform Release 14.1R2, then Junos Space Platform displays the following error message:
          Current platform version does not support this software version.

          The Application Management Job Information dialog box appears. Go to step 4 to confirm whether the application is uploaded successfully.

    4. In the Application Management Job Information dialog box, if you click the Job ID link, you see the Add Application job on the Jobs > Job Management inventory page. Wait until the job is completed and ensure that the job is successful.

      If the upload is successful, then the new application is displayed by application name, filename, version, release level, and the required Junos Space Platform version on the Add Application page.

    Installing the Uploaded Junos Space Application

    To install the uploaded application:

    1. Select Administration > Applications and click the Add Application icon.

      The Add Application page appears.

    2. Select the uploaded application.
    3. Click Install to install the application or click Cancel to exit the Add Application page.

      The Application configuration page appears, displaying a list of server groups to which you can deploy the application.

      Caution: After you select and successfully deploy an application to a server group, it is not possible to move the application from one server group to another from the Junos Space GUI. So choose a server group after careful consideration. To move an application from one server group to another, use the script tool (see the instructions specified in Running Applications in Separate Server Instances).

    4. Select a server group to which you want to deploy the application.

      The default server group is platform to which Junos Space Platform is deployed. If you do not select any server group, the selected application is automatically deployed to the default platform server group.

    5. Click OK to proceed.

      The Application Management Job Information dialog box appears.

    6. In the Application Management Job Information dialog box, if you click the Job ID link, you see the Add Application job on the Job Management page. Wait until the application is fully deployed and ensure that the job is successful.

      If the installation of the application is a failure, then the Summary column for the installation job displays the reason for failure. However, the display of messages depends also on the type and version of the application being installed.

      Note: It is important that you install the applications in the right order: from the primary application to the dependent applications.

    7. If the installation is successful, without logging out of Junos Space Platform, select the application from the Application Chooser list (located at the top-left) to view and begin using its workspaces and tasks.
