Validate Peer Site

Use the Validate Peer Site page to check the reachability of the peer site, before you add it to the Disaster Recovery (DR) environment.

Before you configure the DR, ensure that your Junos Space installation meets the following prerequisites:

  • The Junos Space cluster at the primary or active site ( single node or multiple nodes) and the cluster at the remote or standby site (single node or multiple nodes) must have the same configuration, with the same applications, device adapters, same IP family configurations, and so on.

  • Passwords used must be valid.

  • Both clusters must be configured with SMTP server information from the Junos Space GUI. For more information, see Managing SMTP Servers. This configuration enables the clusters at both the active site and the standby site to notify the administrator by e-mail if the replications fail.

  • The arbitrary devices used must be reachable.

To validate peer site in active and standby site:

  1. Select Administration > Disaster Recovery > Validate Peer Site.

    The Validate Peer Site page appears.

  2. Enter the required parameters and select one or more devices from the list that you want to validate. See Table 1 for more details on the Validate Peer Site page.
