To edit the configuration of a selected router using the Configuration Editor, follow these steps:

  1. In the navigation pane or in the configuration view area, click the configuration statement hierarchy level that you want to edit.

    In the Nested Configuration area, the Edit link appears for statement hierarchy levels that have not been configured; the Configure link appears for statement hierarchy levels that have not been configured. The configuration for the statement hierarchy level that you chose appears.

  2. Click the configuration statement link that you want to edit.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To change an existing configuration, click the Edit link next to the statement name.
    • To add a new configuration, click Configure or Add new entry next to the statement name.
    • To delete an existing configuration, click the Discard button in the button bar. You can discard all outstanding changes, discard all changes below the current edit point, or delete all configurations below the current edit point.

      Note: To view help text about a configuration statement value that you want to edit, move the mouse curser over the [?] icon.

  4. To edit a configuration statement or option, type text in the text field or select a drop-down list item.

    Note: The [M] icon displays indicating that you modified the field’s value. Help text displays when you place the cursor over the icon to indicate that the field was previously unconfigured. Click the modified icon to return the value to its unconfigured state.

  5. Click OK. The Configuration Editor keeps a copy of all of the changes you make as part of your Junos Scope session. The router itself is not updated until you click Commit.

    Note: If you end the Configuration Editor session without committing the configuration changes you made, Junos Scope saves them until the next session and prompts you to commit them.

  6. Click Commit. Junos Scope sends the following commands to the Junos XML protocol server to be performed on the router:
    1. Lock the router configuration.
    2. Load the new configuration on the router, overriding (discarding) the old configuration.
    3. Issue a commit confirmed command.
    4. Issue a commit-configuration Junos XML protocol XML tag command.
    5. Unlock the configuration.

      Note: If an error occurs, Junos Scope issues a rollback command, causing the configuration to revert to the last saved configuration.
