Registering Security Services


Use the Register Security Service page in Security Director to register a Juniper security service on a specific NSX Manager. After registering the security service from Security Director, log in to the vCenter server and deploy the service from NSX.

To register the Juniper security service:

  1. Select Devices > NSX Managers.

    The NSX Managers page appears.

  2. Select the NSX Manager for which service needs to be registered.
  3. From the More list or right-click menu, select Register Security Service.

    The Register Security Service page appears.

  4. Complete the configuration by using the guidelines in Table 1.
  5. Click Register to complete the registration.

    A confirmation message appears if the registration is successful or not.

    To verify if the security service registration is successful, from the vSphere Web Client, click Networking & Security and then click Service Definitions. In the Service Managers tab, verify that Security Director is listed with the status as In Service.
