Configuring Devices to Transfer Committed Configurations

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 can enable or disable transfer-on-commit on selected devices after configuring the Junos Scope server for transfer-on-commit. You can also select a transferred configuration that could not be matched to any of the devices managed in Junos Scope, view the configuration file, select a device, and archive the unmatched transferred configuration into its device archive.

Archiving an Unmatched Configuration

Junos Scope associates a transferred configuration to a device based on the file name of the transferred configuration. If Junos Scope is not able to match the file name of the transferred configuration to any device, the configuration will be stored in the archive as an unmatched configuration. You can select a transferred configuration that could not be matched to any of the devices managed in Junos Scope, view the configuration file, select a device, and archive the unmatched transferred configuration into its device archive. You must have superuser or read-write permission to archive unmatched configurations.

If you have set the host-name of a device to DNSName-re0 on one routing engine (RE) andDNSName-re1 on the other RE and then commit the configuration file, the name of this transferred configuration file is DNSName-re0. Junos Scope cannot match this configuration file name to any device in the database because Junos Scope knows the device only as DNSName. In this case, Junos Scope removes re0 or re1 from the hostname, matches it to a device, and the configuration is archived under that device. If Junos Scope cannot match the file name of the transferred configuration to any device, the configuration is stored in the archive as an unmatched configuration.

To archive unmatched configurations, follow these steps:

  1. In the Junos Scope main window, click Configuration > Repository > Transfer on Commit > Archive Unmatched Configuration. The Select Unmatched Config dialog box appears.
