    Targeted PBNs Overview

    Junos Space Service Insight provides Proactive Bug Notifications (PBNs) as a proactive measure to alert you about known issues that can impact the devices in your network. It is an effective means of communicating information collected while helping one customer fix issues to another customer who could face similar issues in future.

    Using this information, which was collected when issues were reported to Juniper Networks, Service Insight identifies devices on your network with similar conditions. When devices are identified on your network to have similar configuration as those devices on which issues were found, PBNs associated with these devices are displayed on the Targeted PBNs page. These PBNs keep you aware of the possible impacts and also of ways to fix the issue. PBNs also contain workarounds that suggest temporary fixes and instructions that you can follow to protect your network. Service Insight checks for new PBNs and updates the existing PBNs every 24 hours.

    In Service Insight, targeted PBNs are listed on the Targeted PBNs page (Service Insight > Targeted PBNs) as shown in Figure 1.

Using a targeted PBN, you can scan for devices impacted by the vulnerabilities described in the targeted PBN in an organization and list the devices; for more information, see Scanning PBNs for Impact on Devices.,
