Enable automatic software download using Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP).

If the auto-image-upgrade statement is included in the factory default configuration, then ZTP will start automatically when the device is booted up. Otherwise, ZTP will start with the first power cycle after the auto-image-update statement is configured.

The DHCP client compares the software package name in the DHCP server message to the name of the software package that booted the switch. If the software packages are different, the DHCP client downloads and installs the software package specified in the DHCP server message.

Before you upgrade software using automatic software download, ensure that you have configured DHCP services, including configuring a path to a boot server and a boot file. See the Junos OS System Basics Configuration Guide for information about using the CLI to configure DHCP services and settings.


Automatic software download is disabled.
