Juniper Agile License Manager Redundancy Group Overview

Juniper Agile License Manager Redundancy Group provides high availability of the Juniper Agile License Manager. Two or more Agile License Managers operate as a single Agile License Manager for uninterrupted licensing operations.

Figure 1: Juniper Agile License Manager Redundancy GroupJuniper Agile License Manager Redundancy Group

In a redundancy group, configuration files and dynamic runtime session states are synchronized between the Agile License Mangers. Therefore, all the Agile License Managers in the group operate like a single Agile License Manager, providing device, interface, and service-level redundancy.

The redundancy mode is disabled if only one Agile License Manager is configured. The redundancy mode is enabled if more than one Agile License Manager is configured.

We recommend that you set up a Agile License Manager Redundancy Group with redundant (more than one) license managers.

Benefits of a License Manager Redundancy Group

  • Provides high availability between devices when connecting branch and remote site links to larger corporate offices. By leveraging the redundancy group, enterprises can ensure connectivity in the event of device or link failure.

Adding Juniper Agile License Managers to a Redundancy Group

Adding a new Juniper Agile License Manager to a redundancy group provides high availability. This includes synchronization of configuration files, licenses, and the dynamic runtime session states between the Agile License Managers.

  1. Log in to Juniper Agile Licensing Portal.

  2. Click License Managers. The License Manager Groups names are displayed, navigate to License Manager group for which you want to add a new Agile License Manager.
