    Configuring Junos Space Virtual Appliances and Databases

    You must install Junos Space if you use virtualized network functions that require this EMS. This section describes procedures that you need to perform to configure the Junos Space components.

    Configuring MySQL for the Junos Space Databases

    When you provision the VMs manually, you must configure MySQL for the Junos Space database. If you provision the VMs with the provisioning tool, you do not need to complete this procedure, because the tool takes care of the configuration.

    To configure MySQL for the Junos Space database:

    1. Using the credentials you specified when you provisioned the VMs, log in to the appropriate VM:
      • For a standalone Junos Space Virtual Appliance, log in to the VM for the Junos Space Virtual Appliance.
    2. Open the file /var/chroot/mysql/etc/my.cnf with a text editor.
    3. in the [mysqld] section, add the following lines after the line
      performance_schema = off:
      bind-address =
    4. Save the file.
    5. Restart the MySQL database. For example:
      admin@space-db1:~/# /etc/init.d/mysql restart

      The MySQL database restarts.

    Configuring MySQL to Communicate with the Contrail Service Orchestration Components

    You must complete this procedure whether you provisioned the VMs manually or with the provisioning tool.

    To configure MySQL to communicate with the Contrail Service Orchestration components:

    1. Log in to the VM for Junos Space.
    2. Configure access to MySQL through remote authentication. For example, if the MySQL remote authentication username is admin and the remote authentication password is secret123, type:
      admin@space1:~/# mysql -h localhost -uroot -pnetscreen -e "grant all on *.* to 'admin'@'%' identified by 'secret123'"
    3. Assign privileges for all MySQL operations to components with access to MySQL.
      admin@space1:~/# mysql -h localhost -uroot -pnetscreen -e "grant all privileges ON *.* to 'admin'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION"

    Disabling the Firewall on the Junos Space Virtual Appliances

    If you provisioned the Junos Space VMs manually and not with the provisioning tool, you must disable the firewall on each Junos Space Virtual Appliance in the Cloud CPE solution. For information on this procedure, see the Junos Space Virtual Appliance documentation at

    Installing the Patch for Third-Party VNFs

    If you provisioned the VMs manually and not with the provisioning tool, you must install the Junos Space patch for third-party VNFs.

    1. Copy the patch installer package file to the VM in which the primary Junos Space Virtual Appliance resides.
    2. Expand the patch installer package, which has a name specific to the release. For example, if the name of the installer package is patch-version.tar.gz:
      root@host:~/# tar xvf patch-version.tar.gz
    3. Access the directory that contains the installation files. For example:
      root@host:~/# cd patch-version
    4. Apply the patch.
      1. Run the script and enter 1 at the prompt.
      2. Run the script a second time and enter 2 at the prompt.
      3. Run the script a third time and enter 3 at the prompt.

      For example:

      root@host:~/patch-version# ./
      root@host:~/patch-version# 1
      root@host:~/patch-version# ./
      root@host:~/patch-version# 2
      root@host:~/patch-version# ./
      root@host:~/patch-version# 3

      This action installs the patch on both Junos Space Virtual Appliances and databases.
