Deploy an Image

An administrator or a user with the privileges to add, stage, and deploy software images can deploy images on devices. You can deploy an image on multiple devices simultaneously.

  • When you deploy a software image on a device, the device goes into the maintenance state. In the maintenance state:

    • Other actions that impact the device, such as rebooting the device or deploying configuration templates, cannot be performed.

    • Traffic flowing through an SRX Chassis Cluster is not disrupted.

    • Traffic flowing through a standalone device is disrupted.

You can also upgrade images from the Devices page. See Upgrade a Device.

  1. Click SRX > Device Management > Software images.

    The Images page opens.

  2. Select the device image, and click Deploy.

    The Deploy Images page opens.

    In the Deploy Images page, you can view whether the image is staged on a device. If the image is not staged, the image is copied onto the device and deployed, which increases the deployment time.

  3. Under Select Devices, select one or more devices to deploy the device image.
  4. In the Deploy Image field, select a time to run the deployment:
    • Click Run Now to deploy the image immediately.

    • Click Schedule Later to deploy the image later, and specify the date and time to deploy the image.

  5. Click OK.
    • If you select Run Now, a job is initiated immediately to deploy the image.

    • If you select Schedule Later, a job is initiated at the scheduled date and time to deploy the image

    Click Administration > Jobs to view the job.
