Changes in Default Behavior
From Release 17.2R1 onward, Junos Space Platform does not sort configurations while comparing templates. In releases earlier than 17.2R1, Junos Space Platform sorts configurations while comparing templates, and this causes Junos Space Platform to trigger incorrect deviation reports because of a change in the order of configuration statements caused by the sorting.
From Release 17.2R1 onward, Junos Space Platform does not support the click action in the Top 10 Active Users in 24 Hours chart. In releases earlier than 17.2R1, you can click within the chart to view details of the selected item on the corresponding page.
From Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, the VLAN field in reports supports both integer and string values. In releases earlier than 17.1R1, the VLAN field in reports supports only integer values, whereas the VLAN field for logical interfaces accepts both integer and string values. This mismatch causes issues in displaying VLAN information for logical interfaces in reports.
From Release 17.1R1 onward, the VLAN option in the Add Filter Criteria section of the Create Report Definition page and the filter support for the VLAN column on the View Logical Interface page are removed.
From Junos Space Platform Release 16.1R2 onward, the upgrade-related logs at
/var/jmp_upgradeare added to the troubleshooting logs.
From Release 17.1R1 onward, Junos Space Platform boot menu accepts text inputs, such as reinstall, when you install the Junos Space Platform software from USB drives. In versions earlier than Release 17.1R1, the boot menu supports only numerical values. From Release 17.1R1 onward, when you do a reinstall, the software restarts and a local reboot occurs by default. Previously, you had to connect to the console and manually trigger a reboot.
From Junos Space Platform Release 16.1R1 onward, the minimum hard disk requirement for deploying a virtual appliance on a VMware ESX or ESXi server is increased from 133 GB to 250 GB.

You can collect more information about these jobs from the
autoresync.logfiles in the
