    Modifying the Configuration on the Device

    You modify the configuration on a device by using the Modify Configuration page. This topic describes the individual operations involved in modifying a device configuration after you have selected your device and the configuration perspective.

    Note: You can use this workflow to modify the configuration on modeled devices too.

    To modify the device configuration:

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

      The Device Management page is displayed.

    2. Right-click the device whose configuration you want to modify and select Device Configuration > Modify Configuration.

      The Modify Configuration page is displayed.

    3. You can use the Schema-based Configuration Editor or Configuration Guides to modify the device configuration.

      To modify the configuration by using the Schema-based Configuration Editor:

      1. Click the Schema-based Configuration Editor link to modify the configuration by using the schema-based editor.
      2. Select a configuration option from the hierarchy in the left pane.

        The contents of the right pane change to reflect your selection on the left, and the full name of the configuration option appears on the title bar on the right pane.

        The parameters of a configuration option that are displayed vary depending on the data type of the option. The data type is shown in a tooltip when you mouse over an option in the hierarchy. It is the data type that determines how the parameter is validated. The data type is in turn determined by the DMI schema .

        The options displayed in table rows can be manipulated as follows:

        • Edited by selecting a row and clicking the diagonal pencil icon
        • Added by clicking the plus icon
        • Deleted by selecting a row and clicking the minus icon

        The variety in the data presentation affects only how you arrive at the value you want to change, not the value itself.

        For more information about the correlation between data types and validation methods, see Creating a Template Definition.

        A parameter available for configuration is usually displayed as the View/Configure link.

      3. Click View/Configure until you arrive at the parameter that you want to change.
      4. Make your change.

        In the hierarchy on the left, the option you have changed is highlighted and the option label is set in bold. This distinguishes it from subsequent options that you simply visit, without making any changes. If you open the hierarchy, you see not only the name of the principal option, but also the name of the particular parameter that you have changed; for example, not only “SNMP,” but also “Description.”

        Note: Your edits are saved when you click anywhere else on the Edit Device Configuration page (that is, another configuration option or any of the buttons).

      5. (Optional) For information about individual parameters, click the little blue information icons on the right of the configuration settings to display explanations.
      6. (Optional) To add comments about individual parameters, click the little yellow comment icons next to the configuration settings and enter your comments.
      7. (Optional) To activate or deactivate a configuration option, click the Activate or Deactivate link respectively.

        Note: You can activate or deactivate a configuration option only if the configuration node exists.

      8. (Optional) In the Comments field, enter any remarks that you want to display when the consolidated configuration is reviewed. The remarks appear as a title for the configuration.

        If you do not enter anything in this field, the label for the configuration is something similar to Generated config change from: created by super at 2012-09-14 01:33:26.564 (1 Item).
