Edit Devices

You must be an administrator or a user with edit device privileges to edit a device. You edit the device parameters to update the Paragon Automation database with values of parameters that are not captured during device discovery or synchronization.

You cannot edit general information, such as the device name, IP address, OS version running on the device, the family the device belongs to, the device vendor, the device model, or the device serial number. You can, however, edit the device group to which the device belongs and the protocol parameters on the device.

To edit a device configuration in the database:

  1. On the navigation menu, select Configuration > Devices.
  2. Select the device that you want to edit and click the Edit icon (pencil).

    The Edit <device-name> page appears.

  3. Edit the parameter values by referring to Table 1.
  4. Click OK.

    A message indicating that the device parameters are successfully updated is displayed and you are returned to the Devices page.

Table 1: Editable Fields on the Edit Devices Page

Field

Description

Device Group

The device group to which the device belongs. By default, all the device discovered in a topology are assigned to the Controller group, A device must be assigned to the controller group if you want to manage label-switched paths on the device.

Note:

This field is not applicable for Paragon Automation Release 21.2.

Authentication

Authentication Method

Displays the authentication method—Credential-Based.

Username

Enter the username to access the device.

Password

Enter the password to access the device.

Protocols:SSH

Timeout

Number of seconds before a connection request to the device times out. The default is 300 seconds. Use the up and down arrows to increment or decrement this value or type a different value in the field.

Default value is 0 seconds (that is, the connection is available forever)

Maximum Retry Count

Number of retries for establishing connection with the device.

Protocols:SNMP

Version

Select the SNMP version to be used from the list—SNMP v2 or SNMP v3. The default is SNMPv2.

Get Community

Enter the SNMP get community string as configured on the router. The default is public.

Port

Port number on which the SNMP requests are to be sent.

The default is 161. The port number must match the port configured on the router.

Timeout

Enter the number of seconds after which an SNMP connection or request times out. The default is 3 seconds.

Retry Count

Number of times SNMP connection can be attempted. The default count is 3.

Protocols:PCEP

Version

Select a Path computation element protocol (PCEP) version to use from the list.

  • Non-RFC

    Select this version to run in non-RFC 8231/8281 compliance mode. This is the default.

  • RFC Compliant

    Select this version to run in RFC 8231/8281 compliance mode. This is supported in Junos OS 19.x and later (Junos OS releases that are RFC 8231/8281 compliant) releases.

  • Third-party path computation client (PCC)

    Select this version for any device that is not a Juniper Networks device.

IP Address

PCEP IP address used by the router to connect to Paragon Automation for managing label–switched paths.

MD5 String

Message Digest 5 Algorithm (MD5) key string for PCEP authentication.

Note:

MD5 authentication is not supported in this release.

Protocols:PRPD

Enabled

Click to enable or disable (default) PRPD on the device.

Enable SSL

Click to enable of disable (default) use of SSL by PRPD.

IP

IP address for PRPD on the device. The default is the router’s loopback address. If you do not enter a value, the router’s loopback address is used.

Port

Port on the router to establish a PRPD session. The default is 50051.

Protocols:Netconf

Enabled

Click to enable or disable Netconf on the device.

Bulk Commit

Click to enable or disable NetConf bulk commit on the device.

If this option is enabled, you can provision multiple LSPs in a single commit instead of multiple commits on the same router. when you provision multiple LSPs on the same route.

This option should be enabled for P2MP-TE.

Retry Count

Enter the number of times a connection can be attempted on the device. The default is 3.

A value of 0 means an unlimited number of retries; connection attempts never stop.

iAgent/Netconf Port

Enter the port number for Netconf on the device. This port should not be used for any other service.

The default port number is 830 for Juniper Networks devices and 22 for other devices.

Device ID Details

System ID to use for JTI

Unique system identifier required for JTI native sensors. Junos devices use the following format: <host_name>:<jti_ip_address> System ID to use for JTI

When a device has dual routing engines (REs), it might send different system IDs depending on which RE is primary. You can use a regular expression to match both system IDs.

Management IP

Enter the management IP address of the device

Flow Source IPs

Enter one or more IP addresses that the device uses to send NetFlow data to the Paragon Insights component of Paragon Automation. Separate the IP addresses with a comma.

Syslog Source IPs

List of IP addresses that the device uses to send syslog messages to the Paragon Insights component of Paragon Automation. For example, 10.10.10.23, 192.168.10.100.

Syslog Host Names

List of hostnames for sending syslog messages to the Paragon Insights component of Paragon Automation. Use a comma to separate the hostnames.

  • json

  • json_ietf

Open Config Port

Port on which gRPC connection needs to be established for OpenConfig Telemetry

Syslog Time Zone

Specify the Timezone in the format +/-hh:mm for providing a time reference for system logs.
