With your purchase of a SSR license, you are provided a set of credentials used to access the Session Smart Routing software. These credentials, in the form of a username and password are used to access the software assets.
Juniper Session Smart Networking provides the following workflows for the installation process:
Image-based ISO: Beginning with version 6.0, an image-based ISO installation process has been implemented for users who manage their network using the Mist Cloud. This installation and upgrade process is only available for SSR version 6.0 and higher, and is currently only available for Mist-managed deployments.
For details about the Image-based install process, see Image-based Installation.
Package-based ISO: For users who do not use Mist Cloud, this ISO offers multiple local installation methods.
- One Touch Provisioning (OTP) is the default and preferred method of installation. OTP sets up DHCP on all interfaces and boots a Web Server GUI. After installing the Conductor and configuring routers through the Conductor, the OTP bootstrap process will install and configure the router. See the following procedures for OTP installation steps:
- Interactive: For bespoke deployments where customized platform configuration is necessary, an interactive mode exists. Installation is done via a serial console or VGA. An interactive session is started to configure network interfaces, passwords, node name and type, and conductor IP (if applicable) before the SSR software is started.
Beginning with release 5.4.7-7 and any 5.x ISO released after August 4, 2022, the ISO name format has changed from using
