Worldwide Junos OS Adapter Overview
The Junos Space wwadapter enables you to manage devices running the worldwide version of Junos OS (ww Junos OS devices) through Junos Space Network Management Platform. ww Junos OS devices use Telnet instead of Secure Shell (SSH2) to communicate with other network elements. Junos Space Network Management Platform uses the failover approach when identifying a ww Junos OS device. It first tries to initiate a connection to the device using SSH2. If it cannot connect to the device, Junos Space Network Management Platform identifies the device as a ww Junos OS device. Since Junos Space Network Management Platform does not support Telnet, it uses an adapter to communicate with ww Junos OS devices. Junos Space Network Management Platform connects to the adapter using SSH2 and the adapter starts a Telnet session with the device.
For ww Junos OS devices, Space as a System of Record (SSOR) mode of device management is not supported.
Before you install the wwadapter, complete the following prerequisites:
Download the adapter image from the local client workstation.
Ensure that the Junos Space servers have been deployed and are able to access devices.
Configure Junos Space Network Management Platform to initiate connections with the device.
Ensure that you allow at least three Telnet connections between the ww Junos OS device and the Junos Space server. Junos Space Network Management Platform needs a minimum of three Telnet connections with the device in order to be able to manage it.
For ww Junos OS devices, the Junos Space Service Now application works only on AI-Scripts version 2.5R1 and later.
The Secure Console workspace and the option in the right-click context menu in the Manage Devices workspace are disabled for ww Junos OS devices.
