Installation and Upgrade Instructions


This section contains the procedures to install and upgrade Junos Space Security Director and Log Collector.

Installing and Upgrading Security Director Release 18.1R2

Junos Space Security Director Release 18.1R2 is supported only on Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 18.1R1 that can run on the following devices:

  • JA2500

  • Junos Space virtual appliance

  • Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) server installed on CentOS Release 7.2.1511

In Junos Space Security Director Release 18.1R2, a single image installs Security Director, Log Director, and the Security Director Logging and Reporting modules. All three applications are installed when you install the Security Director Release 18.1R2 image.

Note: From Junos Space Security Director Release 17.2R1 onward, Log Collector version information is stored in the /etc/juniper-release file on the Log Collector. In previous Junos Space Security Director releases, Log Collector version information is stored in the /etc/redhat-release file on the Log Collector.

Note: Integrated Log Collector on a JA2500 appliance or Junos Space virtual appliance supports only 500 eps.

For more information about installing and upgrading Security Director Release 18.1R2, see Security Director Installation and Upgrade Guide.

Adding Security Director Log Collector Node in Security Director Release 17.2R1 and Later

The Security Director Log Collector node is no longer a special node in Space fabric. You can add the node directly to Security Director using admin credentials, as in the case of the JSA node. For security reasons, non-root credentials are used to add a node.

From Security Director Release 17.2R1 onward, use admin/juniper123 as default credentials to add the Security Director Log Collector node to Security Director. You can change the default password by using the Log Collector CLI command configureNode.sh as shown in Figure 1.
