    M Series and MX Series Device Configuration Settings Supported in NSM

    You can configure Junos OS features in NSM. Although the configuration screens rendered in NSM look different than the Junos OS command-line interface (CLI), the top-level configuration elements mostly correspond to commands in the CLI.

    Note: For detailed information about configuring specific features for M Series and MX Series devices, see the appropriate Junos OS configuration guide.

    Note: Because the NSM device-side configuration guides are not updated on the same release schedule as the Junos OS releases, consult the Junos OS Documentation for information about configuration settings that might occur in NSM and not in the device-side configuration guides or vice versa.

    Table 1 provides a general guideline of the CLI hierarchy levels that are supported in the NSM configuration tree. For the exact parameters available, double-click the device in the Device Manager and select the Configuration tab. The configuration tree appears in the main display area with all parameters viewable or configurable from NSM.

    When you use NSM to edit the software configuration on the device, you initially make the changes to a device object that models the device in NSM. When you are satisfied with your configuration changes, you use the Update Device directive to push the configuration from the device object in NSM to the device itself. At that point, the edited configuration becomes active.

    Note: If you import an existing device configuration, NSM automatically imports all objects defined in that configuration.

    For more information about editing device configurations, using device templates, using configuration groups, and using configuration groups with templates, see “Configuring Devices” in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide.
