    Adding Multiple Devices Using Automatic Discovery (Junos OS Devices Only)

    You can use automatic discovery to add and import multiple Junos OS devices into NSM. You do so by configuring and running discovery rules. For a Junos OS device to be discovered by this mechanism, it must be configured with a static IP address.

    By configuring and running a discovery rule, you can search a network to discover devices in a specified subnet or within a range of IP addresses. Authentication of the devices is through administrator login SSHv2 credentials and SNMP community settings, which you also configure as part of the rule. Devices that match the rules for discovery also present an SSH key for your verification before the device is added to NSM.

    For more detailed information and steps about adding multiple M Series and MX Series devices using automatic discovery, see “Adding a Device Discovery Rule” and “Running a Device Discovery Rule” in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide.
