Setting the same Device Key Passphrase on all Juniper ATP Appliance Devices

The same device key must be set on all Juniper ATP Appliances in your network, no matter how remote the distributed devices may be. To set a device key passphrase, SSH into the device, login, and use the following CLI commands:

Most characters are valid for the passphrase, except for the following cases:

  • Passphrases including white spaces must be put inside quotations “”.

  • Passphrases including the character \ must be put inside quotations “”.

  • If the passphrase includes the “ character, the “ character itself needs to be escaped.


Always use the latest version of Putty for SSH operations, if using Putty as an SSH client.
