When you start Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP) for the first time, the Junos Space database does not contain any devices. The first step is to add devices from your network to the Junos Space Platform database. Even with large networks, CPP has made this step relatively easy and straightforward. You add configuration and runtime information about the devices to CPP and the database by using a process called device discovery. When a device is discovered, the device’s interface is displayed and CPP begins to monitor the device.
For more information about device discovery, see Prestaging Devices Overview, Prestaging Devices Process Overview, and Discovering and Assigning All N-PE Devices.
