    Changing the Loopback Address of an N-PE Device

    The Network Activate software allows you to change the loopback address of an N-PE device to that of a different loopback unit.

    Note: Although Junos software allows you to assign multiple loopback addresses to the same loopback unit, the Junos Space software recognizes only the first address assigned to the loopback unit. Therefore, when you change the loopback address of an N-PE device, it must be to that of a different loopback unit.

    To change the loopback address of an N-PE device:

    1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Prestage Devices > Manage Device Roles > Assign Roles.

      The results of the most recent role discovery operation appear, including any changes you have subsequently made to your pre-staging data.

      Repeat Step 2 through Step 5 for each device for which you want to change the loopback address.

    2. In the Assign Roles page, select the device for which you want to change the loopback address.
    3. Open the Actions menu and select Modify Loopback Address.
    4. In the Modify Loopback Address window, select the loopback address you want to use.
    5. Click Modify.

      The new loopback address appears.
