Configuring Basic Settings for a Junos Space JA1500 Appliance

You must configure basic network and machine information to make your appliance accessible to the network.

To configure the startup settings of the JA1500 Appliance, follow these steps:

  1. At the serial console login prompt, type the default user name and press Enter. The default user name for console access is admin.
  2. At the login prompt, type the default password and press Enter. The default password for console access is abc123. Junos Space prompts you to change your default password.
  3. Enter the default password, then enter your new password. All passwords are case sensitive. You see passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
  4. Enter a new IP address for interface ETH0 and press Enter.

    Note: The first and second appliance or virtual appliance that you configure in a cluster (fabric) must be in the same subnet.

  5. Enter a new subnet mask for interface ETHO and press Enter.
  6. Enter the default gateway as a dotted decimal IP address and press Enter.
  7. Enter the nameserver address in dotted decimal notation for interface ETH0 and press Enter.
  8. Specify whether the Junos Space system will be added to an existing cluster.
    • If the appliance will be not be added to an existing node cluster or is the first node in the cluster:
      • Enter n when prompted “Will this Junos Space system be added to an existing cluster?”
      • Enter the IP address for Web access.

        The IP address for Web access must be in the same subnet as the IP address for interface ETH0 but must be a different IP address.

      • Enter the display name for this node.

        This is the logical node name that Junos Space displays for the first node in a cluster.

    • If the JA1500 Appliance will be added to an existing node cluster, enter y when prompted “Will this Junos Space system be added to an existing cluster?”
  9. Enter the IP address for the Web GUI and press Enter.
  10. Enter the display name for the node and press Enter.
  11. Enter the password for the cluster maintenance mode.

    This is the password a maintenance mode administrator must specify to access maintenance mode and shutdown all nodes.

  12. Reenter the password to confirm it. You see the settings summary:
    1> IP Change: eth0 is 1.1.1.1 / 1.1.1.1 
    2> Default Gateway = 1.1.1.1 on eth0
    3> DNS add: 1.1.1.1
    4> Create as first node or standalone
    5> Web IP address is 1.1.1.1
    6> Node display name is "space1"
    7> Password for Junos Space maintenance mode is set.
