Complete the Management Console Configuration

To configure the global management console parameters.

  1. Configure the IP address of the DNS server.
    root# set system name-server address
  2. Configure the router domain name.
    root# set system domain-name domain-name
  3. Configure the IP address of a backup router. The backup router is used while the local router is booting and if the routing process fails to start. Once the routing process starts, the backup router address is removed from the local routing and forwarding tables. For more information about the backup router, see the JUNOS System Basics Configuration Guide.
    root# set system backup-router address
  4. (Optional) Configure the static routes to remote subnets with access to the management port. Access to the management port is limited to the local subnet. To access the management port from a remote subnet, you need to add a static route to that subnet within the routing table. For more information about static routes, see the JUNOS System Basics Configuration Guide.
    root# set routing-options static route remote-subnet next-hop destination-IP retain no-readvertise
  5. Configure telnet service at the [edit system services] hierarchy level.
    root# set system services telnet
