    Viewing Physical Interfaces of Devices

    Junos Space Network Management Platform displays physical interfaces by device name, on the basis of the device information in the Junos Space Platform database. You can view the operational status and administrative status of physical interfaces for one or more devices to troubleshoot problems.

    If the interface status changes on the managed device, the information is not updated in Junos Space Platform until the device is resynchronized with the Junos Space Platform database.

    Note: You can view the physical interfaces of devices from the Device Management page. To view the physical interfaces of a device from the Device Management page, click the View link in the Physical Interfaces column corresponding to the device. You are redirected to the View Physical Interfaces page.

    To view the physical interfaces of devices:

    1. On the Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Device Management.

      The Device Management page displays the devices managed by Junos Space Platform.

    2. Select the devices for which you want to view the physical interfaces and select Device Inventory > View Physical Interfaces from the Actions menu.

      Alternatively, right-click the names of the device and select Device Inventory > View Physical Interfaces.

      The View Physical Interfaces page that appears displays the physical interfaces and the status of the physical interfaces of the device. Table 1 describes the information that is displayed on the View Physical Interfaces page.
