SRX110 Services Gateway Autoinstallation Overview

The autoinstallation process begins any time a services gateway is powered on and cannot locate a valid configuration file in the internal flash memory device. Typically, a configuration file is unavailable when a services gateway is powered on for the first time or if the configuration file is deleted from the internal flash memory device.

The autoinstallation feature enables you to deploy multiple services gateways from a central location in the network.

If you are setting up many devices, autoinstallation can help automate the configuration process by loading configuration files onto new or existing devices automatically over the network. You can use either the J-Web configuration editor or the command-line interface (CLI) configuration editor to configure a device for autoinstallation.

For the autoinstallation process to work, you must store one or more host-specific or default configuration files on a configuration server in the network and have a service available—typically Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)—to assign an IP address to the services gateway.

Autoinstallation occurs automatically when you connect an Ethernet port on a new services gateway to the network and power on the device. To simplify the process, you can explicitly enable autoinstallation on a device and specify a configuration server, an autoinstallation interface, and a protocol for IP address acquisition.
