Troubleshooting Issues with Collecting JMBs



Description: Junos Space Service Now fails to collect JMBs.

Symptoms: Service Now does not list any JMBs.


  • Firewall rules on the device prevent Service Now from collecting JMBs.

  • AI-Scripts do not function properly.


Setting Firewall Rules on the Device

Service Now may not be able to collect JMBs from a device running Junos OS if the device does not allow traffic to the localhost address ( Service Now uses the loopback interface on a device running Junos OS for collecting JMBs.

Set the following firewall rules on the device running Junos OS for Service Now to communicate by using the loopback address:

If you do not want to use the loopback address, modify the firewall family configuration to use the device's management IP address for collecting JMBs.

Resolving an AI-Scripts Error

Service Now might be unable to collect JMBs as a result of an AI-Scripts error. AI-Scripts errors are logged in the Junos OS system logs as AIS_DATA_AVAILABLE: ERROR: as follows:

The error may be caused by an issue in the Junos OS software (for example, a CLI command does not return the expected output) or can be due to an internal AI-Scripts error.

To troubleshoot issues with JMB collection because of an AI-Scripts error:

  1. Log in to the device.
  2. Execute the following commands to obtain the relevant logs and files for troubleshooting:
    show log messages | match cscript

    show log escript.log

    show configuration groups juniper-ais | display commit-scripts | no-more

    show configuration system | display inheritance

    show version

    file list /var/db/scripts/op/ detail

    file list /var/tmp/ detail

    show system storage detail

    show system processes extensive | match csc

    start shell

    ps ax | grep ais exit
  3. After collecting the files, do the following:
    • Look for related events that occurred when or just before an AI-Scripts error message is generated in the system log output.

    • Look for SLAX errors logged during the execution of any of the event scripts in the escript.log file.

    • Examine the error messages in the error JMB files that may be created.

    • Save the collected files for further investigation.

    • For AI-Scripts versions earlier than AI-Scripts Release 4.0, execute the request support information command and store and note the size of the output created.

  4. During a maintenance window, uninstall the AI-Scripts package from the device. Note

    You must uninstall AI-Scripts manually from the backup Routing Engines by using the request system scripts delete jais package name command, where jais package name is the name of the AI-Scripts package installed on the backup Routing Engine.

  5. Manually install the AI-Scripts package by using the request system scripts add /var/tmp/jais package name CLI command, where jais package name is the name of the AI-Scripts installation package. Save the output printed on the monitor.
  6. For AI-Scripts Release 4.1R1 and later, if Junos OS Release 14.1R1 or later is installed on the device, generate a health report JMB to obtain necessary information about the AI-Scripts error. To generate the health report JMB, execute the following command on the device running Junos OS:
  7. If you continue to receive error messages, open a case with your technical support representative to investigate the issue further. Provide the following information with the case:
    • All Junos OS CLI command output mentioned in Step 2

    • Any error JMB files that you received

    • Output when you manually installed AI-Scripts

    • Version of Junos Space and Service Now that you used
