    Modifying Authentication Settings

    The Authentication Servers page allows you to change Junos Space Network Management Platform authentication mode and remote authentication server connection settings.

    To modify remote authentication settings:

    1. Select Administration > Authentication Servers.

      The Authentication Servers page appears.

    2. In the Authentication Mode Setting area, change to the authentication method you want to use.

      By default, Junos Space Network Management Platform is in local authentication mode and the controls for the Remote Authentication Servers table are disabled. If you select the Use Remote Authentication check box, the Remote Authentication Only and Remote-Local Authentication options are enabled.

    3. To modify the authentication mode settings, in the Authentication Mode Setting area, perform one of the following tasks:
      • Clear the Use Remote Authentication check box to use local authentication
      • Select the Use Remote Authentication check box to use remote authentication.

        The option button to specify the remote authentication mode is enabled. Perform one of the following tasks:

        • Select Remote Authentication Only to use the remote authentication mode supported by Junos Space Platform.
        • Select Remote-Local Authentication to use the remote local authentication mode supported by Junos Space Platform.
      • Click Save to store the remote authentication mode setting you select.
    4. To modify a previously configured remote authentication server:
      1. Select the authentication server that you want to modify.

        The authentication server that you selected is highlighted.

      2. Click the pencil icon corresponding to the authentication server you selected.

        The previously configured parameters are displayed below the authentication server that you selected. You can modify all the configured parameters except the name of the authentication server. For more details, see the Creating a Remote Authentication Server topic.

      3. After you have modified the authentication server settings, click OK.

        The modifications that you made are saved.

    5. (Optional) Click Test Connection to verify the connection from Junos Space Platform to the remote authentication server.
      • If the test connection result is a success, the remote authentication server is reachable.
      • If the test connection result is a failure, the remote authentication server is unreachable.
      • If the test connection result displays the message Mismatched shared secret, then the configured shared secret for that server is incorrect. Ensure that you have entered the correct remote authentication server shared secret details.
