Task 1: Create the Sites

A site is a sub-set of your organization in the Juniper Mist Cloud, available to anyone with sufficient privileges. Likewise, the configuration settings we make for our sites are automatically applied to (or at least available to) all the devices included in the site. In short, the sites we create in this example should be used exclusively for the hub-spoke network we’re setting up, as should the devices therein (although, for this example, we will keep the default setting for most of the site level configurations).

In addition, the SRX Series Services Gateway should have an AppSecure license (AppSecure is a suite of application-aware security services that provides visibility and control over the types of applications traversing in the networks, which allows the Juniper Mist cloud to track and report applications passing through the device).

To create a site,

  1. In the Juniper Mist menu, click Organization > Site Configuration. A list of existing sites, if any, appears. (Although we do not use the feature here, it is worth pointing out that for later instances of this task, you can clone an existing site by selecting it from the list and then in the screen that appears, clicking the Clone Site button.)

  2. Click the Create Site button in the upper right corner. The New Site window appears.

  3. Give the site a name. In our case, we’ll use dc1, but any name will do.

  4. A Site ID is generated automatically.

  5. Enter the street address of your site or use the map to locate it.

  6. Scroll down the page to the WAN Edge Application Visibility section, and then enable the WAN Edge devices have an APP Track license option.

  7. Scroll down the screen to the Site Variables settings panel.

  8. Click the Add Variable button.

  9. In the pop-up screen that appears, type a name for the variable and specify the value it represents. Use Table 1 to complete the list of variable you need to add.

  10. For the remaining fields, we’ll use the default values except for when we define our site variables.

  11. Click Save to add the variable to the list.

  12. Continue by adding the values for dc2, spokes-static, andspokes-dhcp using the information in the following tables.
