Configuring the Junos Scope Server for Transfer on Commit

You can configure a Junos device to transfer its device configuration to the Junos Scope server when a commit operation succeeds. This feature ensures that the running configuration on the device is always archived in Junos Scope. You should configure the Junos Scope server for transfer-on-commit before configuring transfer-on-commit on devices. You must have superuser permissions to configure the Junos Scope server for transfer-on-commit.

To configure the Junos Scope server for transfer-on-commit, follow these steps:

  1. In the Junos Scope main window, click Home>Settings >Transfer on Commit. The Archive Site dialog box appears.

  2. Enter the directory to which the configuration will be transferred in the Junos Scope Server Directory text box.
  3. Enter the credentials used by the device to connect to the server in the User Name and Password text boxes. This Junos Scope user and the Junos Scope administrator need read-write permission to the directory to which the configuration will be transferred.
  4. Select the protocol used for connecting to the server from the Protocol drop-down list box. You can choose the scp or ftp protocol. To use the scp protocol, the ssh daemon must be running on the Junos Scope server.
  5. Select the default ports for the protocol selected or enter a port to use for connecting to the server in the Port text box. The default ports are port 21 for ftp and port 22 for scp.
  6. Select the key type and public key details required for connecting using the scp protocol.
  7. Select whether to use the DNS name or IP address to connect to the Junos Scope server.
  8. Schedule the archive site scanning operation.
  9. Click OK to configure the archive site. Click Reset to discard your changes.
