    Configure an IP Address and a User with Full Administrative Privileges for the Device


    Before you can add an M Series or MX Series device to NSM, you must have an IP address configured on the management interface (fxp0) and a user with full administrative privileges for the NSM administrator.


    Generally when you install the Junos OS, you configure the router from scratch and at that point you configure the management interface (fxp0) with the IP address and a user with full administrative privileges.

    For information about configuring the router from scratch, see the Junos OS System Basics Configuration Guide.

    For step-by-step instructions on reconfiguring names, addresses, and the root password after reinstalling the Junos OS, see “Configure Names and Addresses” and “Example: Configuring the Root Password.”
