Configuring the Network Publisher (SRC CLI)

 

To configure the network publisher, complete the following tasks:

Configuring Local Configuration for the Network Publisher

You configure the network publisher for a slot. There is no shared configuration for the network publisher.

Use the following configuration statements to configure the basic local configuration for the network publisher:

To set up the basic configuration for the network publisher:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that specifies the configuration for the network publisher for a slot.

  2. Configure logging for the network publisher as you do for other SRC components.

Configuring Connections Between Devices Running Junos OS and the Network Publisher

The network publisher connects to the Junos XML management protocol server on a device running Junos OS. You can configure connection information for a group of routers running Junos OS that use the same version of Junos XML management protocol, and configure information for devices running Junos OS that use a different version.

Use the following configuration statements to configure connection information to allow the network publisher to connect to devices running Junos OS:

To configure Junos XML management protocol connection information for the network publisher to connect to devices running Junos OS:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that specifies the configuration for the network publisher for a slot.

  2. Specify the release number of the Junos OS running on the devices.

  3. (Optional) Specify the version of Junos XML management protocol running on the devices running Junos OS.

  4. (Optional) Configure connection information for devices running Junos OS that use a different version of the Junos OS to the Junos XML management protocol software.

    1. Specify the router name of the router that uses a different version of the software.

    2. Configure the IP address of the router.

    3. Specify the release number of the Junos OS running on the devices.

    4. Specify the version of Junos XML management protocol running on the devices running Junos OS.

Configuring Router Authentication for the Network Publisher

You can configure connection authentication information for a group of devices running Junos OS that use the same authentication information, and configure information for devices running Junos OS that use a different username and password.

Note

For the network publisher to access devices running Junos OS, configure authentication for all devices or each specific device.

Use the following configuration statements to configure connection authentication information to allow the network publisher to connect to devices running Junos OS:

To configure authentication information for the network publisher to connect to devices running Junos OS:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that specifies the configuration for router authentication.

  2. Specify the release number of the Junos OS running on the devices.

  3. Specify the protocol to connect to the device running Junos OS. We recommend that you use SSH.

  4. Specify the username to log into the Junos OS.

  5. Specify the password for the username.

  6. (Optional) Configure authentication information for devices running Junos OS that use different authentication information.

    1. Specify the router name.

    2. Specify the username to log into the Junos OS.

    3. Specify the password for the username.

Configuring Routing Table Filters for the Network Publisher

The network publisher can collect information from Junos IPv4 and IPv6 routing tables. Specify which routing tables the network publisher should include to meet the requirements of your application that uses the NIC OnePopStaticRouteIp or OnePopVrfIp configuration scenario.

By default, the network publisher collects information from all IPv4 routing tables, including tables for VPNs, and entries for all protocols. Based on your network configuration, consider which protocols to exclude from the configuration for network publisher.

Use the following configuration statements to identify the routing tables and routing table elements from which to collect information for the network publisher:

To specify the routing tables from which the network publisher collects information:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that specifies the configuration for the IPv4 and IPv6 routing tables from which the network publisher is to collect information.

  2. Specify the routing table from which the network publisher collects information:

    For example, to select only IPv6 tables:

    You can use regular expressions to identify routing tables.

  3. Specify the element(s) in a routing table:

    For example, to select only those entries that pertain to OSPF advertisements:

Configuring the Connection Between the Network Publisher and the Juniper Networks Database

Configure the connection properties that the network publisher uses to connect to the Juniper Networks database. The network publisher can then store information about routing tables from devices running Junos OS in the Juniper Networks database.

Use the following configuration statements to configure the connection information that the network publisher uses to connect to the Juniper Networks database:

To configure connection information for the Juniper Networks database:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that specifies the configuration for router authentication.

  2. Specify the URL of the primary Juniper Networks database.

  3. Specify the distinguished name (DN) that defines the username with which the network publisher accesses the Juniper Networks database, for example cn = umcadmin, o= umc.

  4. Specify the password with which the network publisher accesses the Juniper Networks database; for example:

  5. (Optional) Specify the DN of the subtree in the database that stores the router data; for example o = Network, o = umc:
