    Installing a Junos Space Appliance

    Service Automation applications run on the Junos Space Network Management Platform. The Junos Space Network Management Platform is preinstalled in the JA1500 Junos Space Appliance and JA2500 Junos Space Appliance. If you are not using a JA1500 or JA2500 appliance, you can create a Junos Space Virtual Appliance by installing and running the Junos Space Network Management Platform on a virtual machine (VM). The Service Now and Service Insight Service Automation components are installed along with the Junos Space Network Management Platform.

    This topic provides the steps to install the Junos Space Network Management Platform image on a VM to create a Junos Space Virtual Appliance. If you are using a JA1500 or JA2500 appliance, see Installing the Appliance section of the JA1500 Junos Space Appliance Hardware Guide or JA2500 Junos Space Appliance Hardware Guide for information about installing the JA1500 Junos Space Appliance or JA2500 Junos Space Appliance.

    Note: If you are using a physical appliance for implementing the Service Automation solution, we recommend that you use the JA2500 Junos Space Appliance.

    A host for a VM meant for deploying a Junos Space Network Management Platform image should meet the following requirements:

    To install the Junos Space Network Management Platform VM image, you must first download the VM image from the Juniper Networks website and then use vSphere Client to deploy the VM image.

    • Download the VM Image from https://www.juniper.net/support/products/space/#sw .

      The Junos Space Network Management Platform is delivered as an VM image (*.ova file).

      Note: Do not change the name of the Junos Space Virtual Appliance image file that you download from the Juniper Networks support site. If you change the name of the image file, the creation of the Junos Space Virtual Appliance can fail.

    • Use the VMware vSphere Client to install the VM image.

    To install the Junos Space Network Management Platform by using VMware vSphere Client:

    1. Launch vSphere Client and log in to the VMware ESX host.
    2. On the menu bar, select File > Deploy OVF Template.

      The Deploy OVF Template page appears.

    3. Select the Deploy from file option, click Browse, and navigate to the OVA file from your storage location.
    4. Click Next to go to the next step.

      The OVF Template details are displayed on the Deploy OVF Template page.

    5. Verify the OVF Template details and then click Next to go to the next step.
    6. Specify a name and location for the deployed template and then click Next to go to the next step.

      A template name can contain a maximum of 80 characters. Template names are not case-sensitive.

    7. Verify your settings and then click Finish to create the Junos Space Virtual Appliance.

      The Junos Space Virtual Appliance is installed and ready to be configured.
