Viewing Managed Devices

 

You can view details of all managed devices in your network, such as the operating system, platform, IP address, license, and connection status. Device information is displayed in a table. Unmanaged devices are also shown, but without status and some other information.

You can also view devices that are in the managed status from the Network Monitoring workspace, through the Node List (see Viewing the Node List). If the network is the system of record, you can resynchronize your managed devices with the Junos Space Platform database (see Resynchronizing Managed Devices with the Network).

Neither manual nor automatic resynchronization occurs when Junos Space Network Management Platform is the system of record. See Systems of Record in Junos Space Overview.

To view configuration and runtime information of managed devices:

  1. On the Network Management Platform UI, select Devices > Device Management.

    The Device Management page is displayed.

    Figure 1 shows the Device Management page.

    Table 1 describes the fields displayed on the inventory page. In the table, an asterisk against a field name indicates that the field is not shown by default.

    Table 1: Fields in the Device Management Table

    Field

    Description

    Name

    Name of the device as stored in the Junos Space Platform database

    Device Alias

    Value of the Device Alias custom label for the device. By default, this field is not displayed on the page. (This field is empty if the Device Alias custom label is not added or no value is assigned to the Device Alias custom label for the device.)

    IP Address

    IPv4 or IPv6 address of the device

    Serial Number

    Serial number of the device chassis (This field displays Unknown for an unmanaged device.)

    Connection Status

    Connection status of the device in Junos Space Platform. Different values are displayed in network as system of record (NSOR) and Junos Space as system of record (SSOR) modes.

    • up—The device is connected to Junos Space Platform.

      When the connection status is up, in NSOR mode, the managed status is Out Of Sync, Synchronizing, In Sync, or Sync Failed.

      In SSOR mode, the status is In Sync, Device Changed, Space Changed, Both Changed, or Unknown (which usually means connecting).

    • down—The device is not connected to Junos Space Platform.

      When the Connection status is down, the managed status is None or Connecting.

    • NA—The device is unmanaged.

    Managed Status

    Current status of the managed device in Junos Space Platform:

    • Connecting—Junos Space Platform has sent a connection remote procedure call (RPC) and is waiting for the first connection from the device.

    • In Sync—The synchronization operation has completed successfully; Junos Space Platform and the device are synchronized with each other.

    • None—The device is discovered, but Junos Space Platform has not yet sent a connection RPC.

    • Out Of Sync—In NSOR mode, the device has connected to Junos Space Platform, but the synchronization operation has not been initiated, or an out-of-band configuration change on the device was detected and auto-resynchronization is disabled or has not yet started.

    • Device Changed—In SSOR mode, there are changes made to the device configuration from the device CLI.

    • Space Changed—In SSOR mode, there are changes made to the device configuration from Junos Space Platform.

    • Space & Device Changed—In SSOR mode, there are changes made to the device configuration from the device CLI and Junos Space Platform. Neither automatic nor manual resynchronization is available.

    • Synchronizing—The synchronization operation has started as a result of device discovery, a manual resynchronization operation, or an automatic resynchronization operation.

    • Sync Failed—The synchronization operation failed.

    • Unmanaged—The device is unmanaged.

    • Modeled—The device is modeled.

    • Waiting for deployment—The modeled device is unreachable and needs to be activated.

    Platform

    Model number of the device (For an unmanaged device, the platform details are discovered through SNMP. If the platform details cannot be discovered, the field displays Unknown.)

    OS Version

    Operating system firmware version running on the device (This field displays Unknown for an unmanaged device.)

    Schema Version

    DMI schema version that Junos Space Platform uses for this device (This field displays Unknown for an unmanaged device.) See DMI Schema Management Overview.

    Physical Interfaces

    Link to the view of physical interfaces for the device (The field displays NA for an unmanaged device.)

    Logical Interfaces

    Link to the view of logical interfaces for the device (The field displays NA for an unmanaged device.)

    Device Family

    Device family of the selected device (For an unmanaged device, this is the same as the vendor name you provided. The field displays Unknown if no vendor name was provided and if SNMP is not used or has failed.)

    Configuration State

    Current state of the device configuration:

    • NA – No change is made to the configuration. This is the default state.

    • Created – A change is made to the device configuration from Junos Space Platform.

    • Approved – The device configuration is approved.

    • Rejected – The device configuration is rejected.

    Last Rebooted Time

    Date and time when the device was last rebooted manually (that is, the device status changes from Down to Up) or from Junos Space Platform

    Vendor

    Name of the device vendor (For an unmanaged device, the field displays Unknown if the vendor name was not provided and cannot be discovered through SNMP.)

    Authentication Status

    • Key Based—The authentication key was successfully uploaded.

    • Credential Based—A key upload was not attempted; log in to this device with your credentials.

    • Key Based - Unverified—The new fingerprint on the device is not updated in the Junos Space Platform database.

    • Key Conflict - Unverified—The key upload was unsuccessful; the new fingerprint on the device is not updated in the Junos Space Platform database.

    • Credentials Based - Unverified—The new fingerprint on the device is not updated in the Junos Space Platform database.

    • Key Conflict—The device was not available; the key upload was unsuccessful.

    • Fingerprint Conflict—The fingerprint stored in the Junos Space Platform database differs from the fingerprint on the device.

    • NA—The device is unmanaged.

    Aggregation Device

    Mode of the aggregation device: single-home or multihome

    Satellite Devices(Number)

    Number of satellite devices connected to the aggregation device

    Connection Type

    • Reachable Device initiated—This is a device-initiated connection from an internal device (without a NAT server to route the connection) and the device is reachable.

    • Reachable Device initiated–External—This is a device-initiated connection from an external device (NAT server routes the connection) and the device is reachable.

    • Junos Space initiated—This is a connection initiated by Junos Space to an internal device (without a NAT server to route the connection).

    • Junos Space initiated–External—This is a connection initiated by Junos Space to an external device (NAT server routes the connection) and the device is reachable.

    • Modeled—This is a device-initiated connection and the device is unreachable.

    Device Network

    Whether the device is connected to Junos Space Platform through a NAT server

    • Internal—The device is connected to Junos Space Platform directly—that is, without a NAT server

    • External—The NAT server routes the connection to Junos Space Platfom
