Booting and Configuring the Junos Space JA1500 Appliance

Follow these steps to start up the Junos Space JA1500 Appliance and install the Junos Space application and operating system.

The JA1500 appliance must be installed in a rack, turned on, and connected to a console terminal running an emulation utility such as HyperTerminal.

To start a JA1500 appliance and install the Junos Space software, follow these steps:

  1. Configure a console terminal or terminal emulation utility to use the following serial connection parameters:
    • 9600 bits per second
    • 8-bit no parity (8N1) 8
    • 1 stop bit
    • No flow control
  2. Connect the terminal to the CONSOLE port using the console cable.
  3. Plug the power cord into the AC receptacle on the rear panel. If the appliance has two power supplies, plug a power cord into each AC receptacle.
  4. Plug the other end of the power cord into a wall socket. If the appliance has two power supplies, plug each power cord into a separate wall sockets.

    When the appliance is powered on, the serial console displays diagnostic information before booting. When booting is complete, the serial console displays the login prompt.

  5. At the boot prompt, enter erase-reinstall-serial and press Enter.

    The Junos Space software is installed from the USB drive onto the appliance hard disk drive, and the JA1500 appliance automatically reboots.

  6. During reboot, when you see the power down message, remove the USB drive from the JA1500 appliance USB port.

    When the appliance has rebooted, the login prompt on the serial console appears.

  7. At the login prompt, type the default user name and press Enter. The default user name for console access is admin.
  8. 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.
  9. Enter the default password, then enter your new password. All passwords are case sensitive. You see passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.

The next procedure allows you to configure the basic settings for your Junos Space JA1500 appliance from the serial console.
