Before You Begin Configuring the SRC Software on a C Series Controller


Before you begin configuring the SRC software on a C Series Controller, be sure that:

  • You are familiar with how to use the SRC CLI.

    • Initial system setup and configuration have been completed, including configuration for:

      • C Series Controller hostname

      • Domain name system

      • Eth0 interface

      • Clock synchronization (Configure the NTP server and verify the clock.)

      • SSH access

    • Initial configuration for the Juniper Networks database and the database enabled on the system


      The Juniper Networks database must be running before you start configuring the SRC software.

    • An administrative account that has superuser privileges


      Although root access is used for initial configuration of a C Series Controller, user accounts are used to enter commands and statements at the CLI.
