Adding Unmanaged Devices

 

In the Junos Space Network Management Platform context, unmanaged devices are those made by vendors other than Juniper Networks, Inc. You can add such devices to Junos Space Platform manually, or by importing multiple devices simultaneously from a CSV file.

To add a non-Juniper device to Junos Space Network Management Platform:

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

    The Add Unmanaged Devices page is displayed.

  2. You can add non-Juniper devices either manually or using a CSV file. To add the devices manually, select the Add Manually option button.

    The Device Details area is displayed on the Add Unmanaged Devices page.

  3. Select the IP Address or Hostname option button.

    If you selected the IP Address option, enter the IP address of the device.

    Note

    You can enter the IP address in either IPv4 or IPv6 format. Refer to http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space/ipv4-address-space.xhtml for the list of restricted IPv4 addresses and http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space/ipv6-address-space.xhtml for the list of restricted IPv6 addresses.

    If you selected the Hostname option, enter the hostname of the device.

  4. (Optional) In the Vendor field, enter the name of the device’s vendor.

    The maximum length is 256 characters. Spaces are acceptable.
  5. (Optional) Select the Configure Loopback check box if you want to configure the loopback address for the device.

    If you do so, the Loopback Settings area appears.

    1. In the Loopback Name field, enter the loopback name for the device.

    2. In the Loopback Address field, enter the loopback address for the device.

      You can specify both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses as loopback addresses. The valid range for IPv4 loopback address is 1.0.0.1–223.255.255.254. The valid range for IPv6 loopback address is 1::–ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff.

  6. Select the Use SNMP check box to use SNMP to gather device information.

    If you do so, the SNMP Settings area is displayed.
  7. Use the option buttons to select either SNMP V1/V2C or SNMP V3.
    • If you select SNMP V1/V2C, the Community field appears. Enter the appropriate SNMP community string (password) to give access to the device.

    • If you select SNMP V3, several fields appear, as described in Table 1. Enter values as appropriate.

      Table 1: SNMP V3 Configuration Parameters

      Name

      Value

      Username

      Username previously configured on the device

      Authentication type

      Algorithm used for authentication: MD5, SHA1, or None. MD5 or SHA1 is used to create a hash of the authentication password. Note that only this password is encrypted, not any other packets transmitted.

      Authentication password

      Password that authenticates Junos Space Network Management Platform to the device to gain access to it. The password must have at least eight characters and can include alphanumeric and special characters, but not control characters.

      Privacy type

      Encryption algorithm used to encrypt transmitted packets: AES128, AES192, AES256, DES, or None.

      Privacy password

      Password that allows reading the transmissions themselves. The password must have at least eight characters.

  8. (Optional) To add non-Juniper devices using the CSV file, select the Import From CSV option button on the Add Unmanaged Devices page.
  9. The Import area appears, displaying the following links:
    • View Sample CSV

    • Select a CSV To Upload.

    Clicking View Sample CSV displays a CSV file in the format shown in Table 2.
