  • Juniper Agile Licensing (PTX10001-36MR, PTX10004, and PTX10008)

    Starting in Junos OS Evolved Release 21.1R1, the listed PTX Series routers support Juniper Agile Licensing.

    Juniper Agile Licensing provides simplified and centralized license administration and deployment. You can use Juniper Agile Licensing to install and manage licenses for software features.

    Juniper Agile Licensing supports soft enforcement of software feature licenses. With soft enforcement, if you configure a feature without a license, Junos OS displays a warning when you commit the configuration. However, the feature is operational. In addition, Junos os generated periodic alarms indicating that you need the license to use the feature. You can see the list of alarms at System Log Explorer.

    If you are upgrading to Junos OS Evolved Release 21.1R1, you need new license keys to use the features on the listed devices. Contact Customer Care to exchange license keys for Junos OS releases earlier than Junos OS Evolved Release 21.1R1.

    Table 1 describes the licensing support for the PTX10001-36MR, PTX10004, and PTX10008 devices.
