Configuring Autoinstallation with a Config Editor on the SRX650 Services Gateway

No configuration is required on a services gateway on which you are performing autoinstallation, because it is an automated process. However, to simplify the process on a services gateway, you can specify one or more interfaces, protocols, and configuration servers to be used for autoinstallation.

To configure autoinstallation:

  1. Navigate to the top of the configuration hierarchy in either the J-Web or CLI configuration editor.
  2. Perform the configuration tasks described in Table 1.
  3. If you are using the J-Web interface, click Commit to view a summary of your changes, then click OK to commit the configuration.
  4. If you are using the CLI, commit the configuration by entering the commit command.
  5. To check the configuration, see Verifying Autoinstallation Status on the SRX650 Services Gateway.

Table 1: Configuring Autoinstallation


J-Web Configuration Editor

CLI Configuration Editor

Navigate to the System level in the configuration hierarchy.

  1. In the J-Web interface, select Configuration>View and Edit> Edit Configuration.
  2. Next to System, click Configure or Edit.

From the [edit] hierarchy level, enter

edit system

Enable autoinstallation.

Select Autoinstallation, then click Configure.

set autoinstallation configuration-servers url

Specify the URL of one or more servers from which to obtain configuration files. For example:

  1. Next to Configuration servers, click Add new entry.
  2. Type the location of the configuration server in the Url box.
  3. If a password is required for server access, type it into the Password box.
  4. Click OK to return to the Autoinstallation page.

Configure one or more Ethernet interfaces to perform autoinstallation.

  1. Next to Interfaces, click Add new entry.
  2. Type the name of the interface into the Interface name box—for example, ge-0/0/0.
  3. Click OK.

To set BOOTP and RARP on an Ethernet interface, enter
set autoinstallation interfaces ge-0/0/0 bootp rarp

Configure one or two procurement protocols for each interface. The services gateway uses the following protocols to send a request for an IP address for the interface:

  • BOOTP—Sends requests over all interfaces.
  • RARP—Sends requests over Ethernet interfaces.
  • SLARP—Sends requests over serial interfaces.
  1. Next to the interface name, click Edit.
  2. Select one or two protocols to be used by autoinstallation over the interface—for example, Bootp and Rarp.
  3. Click OK.
