    Preparing the Device for Junos Space Management

    Before you can use the Juniper Networks Junos Space application to manage the QFX Series device, you must ensure that the configuration on the device meets the following requirements for device discovery in Junos Space:

    • The device configuration has a static management IP address that is reachable from the Junos Space server.
    • There is a user with full administrative privileges for Junos Space administration.
    • SNMP is enabled (only if you plan on using SNMP as part of the device discovery).
    • In Junos Space, set up a default device management interface (DMI) schema for the QFX Series device.

    Note: Do not install Junos Space and AI-Scripts (AIS) on the control plane network EX4200 switches or EX4200 Virtual Chassis in a QFX3000 QFabric system

    To prepare the device before using Junos Space:

    1. Perform the initial configuration of the device through the console port using the Junos OS CLI. This task includes the configuration of a static management IP address and a user with root administrative privileges.

      For the QFX3500 switch, see Configuring a QFX3500 Device as a Standalone Switch.

      For the QFabric system, see QFabric System Initial and Default Configuration Information and Performing the QFabric System Initial Setup on a QFX3100 Director Group.

    2. (Optional) Configure SNMP if you plan on using SNMP to probe devices during device discovery.

      See Configuring SNMP.

    3. (Optional) Enable SSH if you wish to use the Secure Console feature in Junos Space.

      See Configuring SSH Service for Remote Access to the Router or Switch.

    4. In Junos Space, set up a default DMI schema. For more information about managing DMI schemas, see:
