    Installing Software on EX Series Switches (J-Web Procedure)

    You can upgrade software packages on a single, fixed-configuration switch, on an individual member of a Virtual Chassis, or for all members of a Virtual Chassis.

    You can use the J-Web interface to install software upgrades from a server using FTP or HTTP, or by copying the file to the EX Series switch.

    3. In the J-Web interface, select Maintain > Software > Install Package.
    4. On the Install Remote page, enter information into the fields described in Table 1.

    Reboot If Required

    Note: The Reboot check box will be disabled if you enter a J-Web Application package name in the Package Location text box. To enable the Reboot check box, enter a Junos OS package name in the Package Location text box.

    If this box is checked, the switching platform will automatically reboot when the upgrade is complete.

    Check the box if you want the switching platform to reboot automatically when the upgrade is complete.
