Importing a Software Image

Before you can install a software image using the Software Manager, you must first download it from the Juniper Networks Support Web page to the local file system of your workstation, then import it into the Junos Scope server.

To download software images from the Juniper Networks software download page, you must have a service contract and an access account. If you do not have an access account, complete the registration form at the Juniper Networks Web site:

To import a software image into the Junos Scope software, follow these steps:

Note: To import a BXOS image, you must have installed IP Backhaul Manager license.

  1. Download the software image you need from the Juniper Networks Support Web site, to your workstation.
    1. Select the Canada and US, Worldwide, or Junos-FIPS editions.
    2. Select the software release that you want.
  2. Log in to the Junos Scope software and click Software Management > Images.

    The Images dialog box appears. If you have not imported any software images, the Images dialog box is empty.

  3. Enter the MD5 checksum value in the Verify MD5 Checksum field. The checksum can be obtained from when you download the image. This checksum value is compared with the checksum stored in Junos Scope to verify that the downloaded image is intact. This field is optional.
  4. Click Import.

    The Import Software Image dialog box appears.

  5. Use Browse to navigate to the software image file on the local file system that you want to import. For example, you can import a software image file, such as jinstall-7.5R2.8-domestic-signed.tgz, to install on M Series and T Series routing platforms.
  6. Click Import.

    The Junos OS imports the software image. This operation may take a while, depending on the size of the image and the connection speed between the local machine and the Junos Scope server. The imported software image file appears in the Images dialog box. For more information about how to manage software images in the Images dialog box, see Managing Software Images.
