Installing Software on SRX Series Devices

 

SRX Series devices are delivered with preinstalled Junos operating system (Junos OS). Before you start this procedure, decide which software package you need and download it. For information on which packages to use for which upgrades, see Junos OS Installation Package Names.

Understanding Junos OS Upgrades for SRX Series Devices

SRX Series devices are delivered with Junos OS preinstalled on them. When you power on a device, it starts (boots) up using its primary boot device. These devices also support secondary boot devices, allowing you to back up your primary boot device and configuration.

As new features and software fixes become available, you must upgrade Junos OS to use them. Before an upgrade, we recommend that you back up your primary boot device.

Understanding Junos OS Upgrades

On a services gateway, you can configure the primary or secondary boot device with a snapshot of the current configuration, default factory configuration, or rescue configuration. You can also replicate the configuration for use on another device.

If the SRX Series device does not have a secondary boot device configured and the primary boot device becomes corrupted, you can reload the Junos OS package onto the corrupted internal media from a USB flash drive or TFTP server.

Junos OS Upgrade Methods on the SRX Series Devices

SRX Series devices that ship from the factory with Junos OS Release 10.0 or later are formatted with the dual-root partitioning scheme.

Note

Junos OS Release 12.1X45 and later do not support single root partitioning.

Note

SRX100, SRX110, SRX210, SRX220, and SRX240 devices with 2 GB RAM cannot be upgraded to any Junos OS 12.1X46 Release after 12.1X46-D65. Attempting to upgrade to this release on devices with 2 GB RAM will trigger the following error: ERROR: Unsupported platform for 12.1X46 releases after 12.1X46-D65

.

Existing SRX Series devices that are running Junos OS Release 9.6 or earlier use the single-root partitioning scheme. While upgrading these devices to Junos OS Release 10.0 or later, you can choose to format the storage media with dual-root partitioning (strongly recommended) or retain the existing single-root partitioning.

Certain Junos OS upgrade methods format the internal media before installation, whereas other methods do not. To install Junos OS Release 10.0 or later with the dual-root partitioning scheme, you must use an upgrade method that formats the internal media before installation.

Note

If you are upgrading to Junos OS Release 10.0 without transitioning to dual-root partitioning, use the conventional CLI and J-Web user interface installation methods.

These upgrade methods format the internal media before installation:

  • Installation from the boot loader using a TFTP server

  • Installation from the boot loader using a USB storage device

  • Installation from the CLI using the partition option (available in Junos OS Release 10.0)

  • Installation using the J-Web user interface

These upgrade methods retain the existing partitioning scheme:

  • Installation using the CLI

  • Installation using the J-Web user interface

Warning

Upgrade methods that format the internal media before installation wipe out the existing contents of the media. Only the current configuration is preserved. Any important data must be backed up before starting the process.

Note

Once the media has been formatted with the dual-root partitioning scheme, you can use conventional CLI or J-Web user interface installation methods, which retain the existing partitioning and contents of the media, for subsequent upgrades.

Example: Installing Junos OS Upgrade Packages on SRX Series Devices

This example shows how to install Junos OS upgrades on SRX Series devices.

Requirements

Before you begin:

  • Verify the available space on the internal media.

  • Download the software package. See Downloads to download the software package for your products.

  • Copy the software package to the device if you are installing the software package from a local directory on the device. We recommend that you copy it to the /var/tmp directory. To copy the software package to the /var/tmp directory, use the following command from the operational mode:

    Example:

Overview

By default, the request system software add package-name command uses the validate option to validate the software package against the current configuration as a prerequisite to adding the software package. This validation ensures that the device can reboot successfully after the software package is installed. This is the default behavior when you are adding a software package.

In this example, add the software package (for example: junos-srxsme-10.0R2-domestic.tgz [for SRX Series devices] with the following options:

  • no-copy option to install the software package but do not save the copies of package files. You must include this option if you do not have enough space on the internal media to perform an upgrade that keeps a copy of the package on the device.

  • reboot option to reboots the device after installation is completed.

Example: Installing Junos OS on SRX Series Devices Using the Partition Option

This example shows how to install Junos OS Release 10.0 or later with the partition option.

Requirements

Before you begin, back up any important data.

Overview

This example formats the internal media and installs the new Junos OS image on the media with dual-root partitioning. Reinstall the Release 10.0 or later image from the CLI using the request system software add command with the partition option. This copies the image to the device, and then reboots the device for installation. The device boots up with the Release 10.0 or later image installed with the dual-root partitioning scheme. When the partition option is used, the format and install process is scheduled to run on the next reboot. Therefore, we recommend that this option be used together with the reboot option.

Note

The process might take 15 to 20 minutes. The system is not accessible over the network during this time.

Warning

Using the partition option with the request system software add command erases the existing contents of the media. Only the current configuration is preserved. You must back up any important data before starting the process.

Note

Partition install is supported on the default media on SRX300, SRX320, 340, and SRX345 devices (internal NAND flash) and not supported on the alternate media (USB storage key).

Preparing the USB Flash Drive to Upgrade Junos OS on SRX Series Devices

This feature simplifies the upgrading of Junos OS images in cases where there is no console access to an SRX Series device located at a remote site. This functionality allows you to upgrade the Junos OS image with minimum configuration effort by simply copying the image onto a USB flash drive, inserting it into the USB port of the SRX Series device, and performing a few simple steps. You can also use this feature to reformat a boot device and recover an SRX Series device after boot media corruption.

All USB flash drives used on SRX Series devices must have the following features:

  • USB 2.0 or later.

  • Formatted with a FAT/FAT 32 or MS-DOS file system

Note

For the list of recommended USB drives, see Knowledge Base article KB31622.

Note

The Junos OS package on a USB device is commonly stored in the root drive as the only file; for example, junos-srxsme-15.1X49-D30.3-domestic.tgz.

Caution

Any USB memory product not listed as supported for SRX Series devices has not been tested by Juniper Networks. The use of any unsupported USB memory product could expose your SRX Series device to unpredictable behavior. Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) can provide only limited support for issues related to unsupported hardware. We strongly recommend that you use only supported USB flash drives.

Note

This feature is not supported on chassis clusters.

Before you begin:

  • Copy the Junos OS upgrade image and its autoinstall.conf file to the USB device.

  • Ensure that adequate space is available on the SRX Series device to install the software image.

To prepare the USB flash drive and copy the Junos OS image onto the USB flash drive:

  1. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port of a PC or laptop computer running Windows.
  2. From My Computer, right-click the drive Devices with Removable Storage.
  3. Format the drive with the FAT/FAT32 file system.
  4. Copy the Junos OS image onto the USB device.

    For the installation process to succeed, copy only one image onto the USB device. Only images named junos-srxsme* are recognized by the system.

  5. Check the drive name detected in My Computer for the USB device. Open the command prompt window and type:

    For example, if the drive detected is drive F, type echo “ “ > F:\autoinstall.conf at the command prompt. This empty file indicates to the system that the automatic installation of the Junos OS image from the USB device is supported.

  6. (Optional) Create a text file named junos-config.conf and copy the file to the USB device. For example, the following file supports an automatic configuration update during the installation process:
    Note

    The junos-config.conf file is optional, and it is not necessary for the automatic installation of the Junos OS image from the USB device. You can use the junos-config.conf file for a backup configuration for recovery or if the existing configuration is accidentally deleted.

Installing Junos OS on SRX Series Devices Using a USB Flash Drive

To install the Junos OS image on an SRX Series device using a USB flash drive:

  1. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port of the SRX Series device and wait for the LEDs to blink amber, then steadily turn amber, indicating that the SRX Series device detects the Junos OS image.

    If the LEDs do not change to amber, press the Power button or turn the device off and then on again and wait for the LEDs to blink amber.

  2. Press the Reset Config button on the SRX Series device to start the installation and wait for the LEDs to glow steadily amber.

    When the LEDs glow green, the Junos OS upgrade image has been successfully installed.

    If the USB device is plugged in, the Reset Config button always performs as an image upgrade button. Any other functionality of this button is overridden until you remove the USB flash drive.

  3. Remove the USB flash drive.

    The SRX Series device restarts automatically and loads the new Junos OS version.

Note

On SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, and SRX550M devices, frequent plug and play of USB keys is not supported. You must wait for the device node creation before removing the USB key.

Note

If an installation error occurs, the LEDs turn red, which might indicate that the Junos OS image on the USB flash drive is corrupted. An installation error can also occur if the current configuration on the SRX Series device is not compatible with the new Junos OS version on the USB or if there is not enough space on the SRX Series device to install the image. You must have console access to the SRX Series device to troubleshoot an installation error.

Note

You can use the set system autoinstallation usb disable command to prevent the automatic installation from the USB device. After using this command, if you insert the USB device into the USB port of the SRX Series device, the installation process does not work.

Note

Installing the Junos OS image using a USB flash drive is supported on SRX100, SRX110, SRX210, SRX220, and SRX240 devices.

Upgrading the Boot Loader on SRX Series Devices

To upgrade the boot loader to the latest version:

  1. Upgrade to Junos OS Release 10.0 or later (with or without dual-root support enabled).

    The Junos OS 10.0 image contains the latest boot loader binaries in this path: /boot/uboot, /boot/loader.

  2. Enter the shell prompt using the start shell command.
  3. Run the following command from the shell prompt:

    bootupgrade –u /boot/uboot –l /boot/loader

    Note

    You can use the following commands to upgrade U-Boot or perform cyclic redundancy check (CRC):

    • bootupgrade -s -u – To upgrade the secondary boot loader.

    • bootupgrade -c u-boot – To check CRC of the boot loader.

    • bootupgrade -s -c u-boot – To check CRC for the secondary boot loader.

    • bootupgrade -c loader – To check CRC for the loader on boot loader.

  4. Enter the show system firmware command to check whether the upgrade is successful or not.
  5. For the new version to take effect, you should reboot the system after upgrading the boot loader.

You can check the boot loader version number at console output when your device boots up as shown in the following example:

To verify the (bios) firmware version on the SRX Series device, enter the show chassis routing-engine bios command.

user@host> show chassis routing-engine bios

Installing Junos OS on SRX Series Devices from the Boot Loader Using a TFTP Server

You can install Junos OS using the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) method. The device is shipped with Junos OS loaded on the primary boot device. During Junos OS installation from the loader, the device retrieves the Junos OS package from a TFTP server. The internal media is then formatted, and the Junos OS image is installed.

From the loader installation, you can:

  • Install Junos OS on the device for the first time.

  • Recover the system from a file system corruption.

    Note

    Installation from a TFTP server can only be performed using the first onboard Ethernet interface.

    Installation from the loader-over-TFTP method does not work reliably over slow speeds or large latency networks.

Before you begin, verify that:

  • You have access to the TFTP server with the Junos OS package to be installed.

  • That the TFTP server supports BOOTP or DHCP. If the TFTP server does not support BOOTP or DHCP, you must set the environment variables before performing the installation from the TFTP server.

  • Functional network connectivity exists between the device and the TFTP server over the first onboard Ethernet interface.

To install the Junos OS image on the internal media of the device:

  1. To access the U-boot prompt, use the console connection to connect to the device.
  2. Reboot the device.

    The following messages appear:

    After this message appears, you see the following prompt:

  3. Press the space bar to stop the autoboot process.

    IP address of the TFTP server

    This example shows you how to configure the environment variables:

  5. Reboot the system using the reset command.
  6. To access the loader prompt, use the console connection to connect to the device.
  7. Reboot the device.

    The following message appears:

    Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf

    After this message appears, you see the following prompt:

    Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or space bar for command prompt.

  8. Press the space bar to access the loader prompt (loader>).

    The loader> prompt appears. Enter:

    Note

    The URL path is relative to the TFTP server’s TFTP root directory, where the URL is tftp://tftp-server-ipaddress/package.

When this command is executed:

  • The Junos OS package is downloaded from the TFTP server.

  • The internal media on the system is formatted.

  • The Junos OS package is installed on the internal media.

Note

The Installation from the loader-over-TFTP method installs Junos OS on the internal CF on SRX100, SRX210, SRX220, and SRX240 devices, whereas on SRX650 devices, this method can install Junos OS on the internal or external CF card.

After Junos OS is installed, the device boots from the internal media. Once the system boots up with Junos OS Release 10.0 or later, you must upgrade the U-boot and boot loader immediately.

Caution

When you install Junos OS using the loader-over-TFTP method, the media is formatted. The process attempts to save the current configuration. We recommend that you back up all important information on the device before using this process.

Installing Junos OS on SRX Series Devices from the Boot Loader Using a USB Storage Device

To install Junos OS Release 10.0 or later from the boot loader using a USB storage device:

  1. Format a USB storage device in MS-DOS format.
  2. Copy the Junos OS image onto the USB storage device.
  3. Plug the USB storage device into the SRX Series device.
  4. Stop the device at the loader prompt and issue the following command:

    An example of a command is as follows:

    This formats the internal media and installs the new Junos OS image on the media with dual-root partitioning.

  5. Remove the USB flash drive.
Note

On SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, and SRX550M devices, frequent plug and play of USB keys is not supported. You must wait for the device node creation before removing the USB key.

Note

If an installation error occurs, the LEDs turn red, which might indicate that the Junos OS image on the USB flash drive is corrupted. An installation error can also occur if the current configuration on the SRX Series device is not compatible with the new Junos OS version on the USB or if there is not enough space on the SRX Series device to install the image. You must have console access to the SRX Series device to troubleshoot an installation error.
