Configuring Access to the SRC CLI Overview

The SRC CLI is the management and configuration interface on C Series Controllers. Most SRC configuration data is stored in the Juniper Networks database on the C Series Controller. When you use the Juniper Networks database, you can use the default configuration to connect to the directory. You can add backup directories and change the password to the directory.

The CLI for policies, services, and subscribers requires that you configure access to and explicitly start the Policies, Services, and Subscribers CLI.

You configure access to the SRC CLI by setting up user access accounts.

Accessing the SRC CLI When Using an External Directory Server

By default, the SRC software uses the local Juniper Networks database to authenticate access to the SRC CLI. The SRC software can also use an external directory server to authenticate access to the SRC CLI. To use an external directory server to authenticate access to the SRC CLI, you need to define the URL to the external directory server using the set url url command under the [ edit system ldap client] hierarchy. You can also define access to backup directory servers by using the set backup-urls backup-url-n backup-url-n2 command under this hierarchy. After you configure access to the external directory server, the SRC software uses this server to authenticate access to the SRC CLI instead of the local Juniper Networks database. If the primary external directory server is down and you have configured a backup, the SRC software uses the backup server to authenticate access to the SRC CLI.
