    Migrating Service Interfaces in Cross Provisioning Platform

    When an interface becomes faulty or needs to be migrated to a higher-capacity port, you must migrate all services deployed on a specific interface to the destination interface on the same device. In all the devices of Juniper Networks, the Cross Provisioning Platform application actually modifies the device configuration to migrate all the services. The Cross Provisioning Platform application deletes the source interface and adds the destination interface to the service. A migration XSLT script is required to generate the configuration changes to delete or add an interface from or to a service. The script is independent of the service type and attached to the device configlet definition.

    Before you can migrate the service interfaces in Cross Provisioning Platform, make sure that the configuration script and the GUI script are present in the local machine.

    To migrate interfaces on third-party devices, a third-party network management product is required to modify the device configuration.

    To perform service interface migration on Juniper Networks devices:

    1. From the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Scripts.

      The Scripts page that appears displays a list of existing scripts in the Cross Provisioning Platform application.

    2. Click Add Script above the tool grid.

      The Add Script(s) page appears.

    3. In the Name field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to identify the name of the script.
    4. In the Description field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to further identify the script you named.
    5. From the Vendor Type drop-down list, select Junos Space.
    6. Click Browse and select the configuration script and the GUI script from the local machine to add them to the Cross Provisioning Platform application.
    7. Click Create to add the scripts that you uploaded.

      A confirmation dialog box appears with the Scripts added successfully message.

    8. Click OK.
    9. From the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Service Definition.

      The Service Definition page that appears displays a list of the existing service definitions in the Cross Provisioning Platform application.

    10. Click the Create CPP Service Definition icon above the tool grid.

      The Create Service Definition dialog box appears with the General, the SAM Service Scripts, and the JUNOS Space Service Scripts sections.

    11. On the Create Service Definition page, perform the following steps:
      • In the General section:
        1. In the Name field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to identify the name of the service definition.

        2. In the Description field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to further identify the service definition you named.
        3. From the Type drop-down list, select Device.
      • In the SAM Service Scripts section:
        1. From the Creation drop-down list, select the appropriate SAM service script.
        2. From the Modification drop-down list, select the appropriate SAM service script.
      • In the JUNOS Space Service Scripts section:
        1. From the Creation drop-down list, select the appropriate Junos Space service script.
        2. From the Modification drop-down list, select the appropriate Junos Space service script.
    12. Click Create.

      The Service Definition page appears with the existing service definitions along with the service definition that you created.

    13. From the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Bulk Service Operations.

      The page that appears has three option buttons: Service Deletion, Interface Migration and Resync Services.

    14. Select the Interface Migration option button.

      The page that appears has three grids: Step 1: Select From Device, Step 1: Select From Interface, and View Service(s).

    15. On the Step 1: Select From Device, select Vendor as Juniper and select the Juniper Networks device from the list.

      The corresponding interfaces are listed on the Step 2: Select From Interface grid.

    16. On the Step 2: Select From Interface grid, select an interface.

      The corresponding services are listed on the View Service(s) grid.

    17. Click Next.

      The Interface Migration window appears.

    18. Perform the following steps on the Interface Migration page:
      1. From the Service Definition drop-down list, select the service definition that you created.
      2. In the Description field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to identify the service interface migration.
      3. From the To Interface drop-down list, select an interface to which you want to migrate the services.
    19. Click Migrate to initiate the service interface migration.

      A job is triggered to show the migration status.

      Note: When you migrate one service interface, the configuration of all the services present in that interface from the device CLI, irrespective of the services present on the Junos Space server, are also migrated. You can do the service interface migration only for one device at a time.

    Perform the following steps to migrate services to third-party devices:

    1. From the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Bulk Service Operations.

      The page that appears has three option buttons: Service Deletion, Interface Migration and Resync Services.

    2. Select the Interface Migration option button.

      The page that appears has three grids: Step 1: Select From Device, Step 1: Select From Interface, and View Service(s).

    3. On the Step 1: Select From Device, select Vendor as Alcatel and select the Nokia device from the list.

      The corresponding interfaces are listed on the Step 2: Select From Interface grid.

    4. On the Step 2: Select From Interface grid, select an interface.

      The corresponding services are listed on the View Service(s) grid.

    5. Click Next.

      The Interface Migration window appears.

    6. Perform the following steps:
      • In the To Interface field, click the drop-down to select an interface to which you want to migrate the services.
      • In the Service Definition field, click the drop-down field to select the service definition associated with this migration.
      • In the Description field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to describe this service interface migration.
    7. Click Migrate to initiate the service interface migration.

      A job is triggered to show the migration status.

    Note: If you have created multi-vendor services, i.e. JNPR-ALU and need to migrate the end point of both Juniper Networks and the third-party devices, then you need to perform the migration on the third-party devices using a third-party network management product first and then perform the migration on Juniper Networks devices and third party devices in Cross Provisioning Platform in the same manner as above. This records all the changes related to this migration in the Cross Provisioning Platform database.
