NNMi : Netconf configuration for Juniper Device

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

We monitor some juniper Device for our customer. I found in the device support matrix that we have to configure Netconf XML over ssh for JuniperEX 4200 devices.

 

I follow the Netconf device guide provide by Juniper to configure my router.

On NNM server, I have to configure the credential form only ?

 

How NNM use the NETCONF over ssh ? and when it used?

 

Someone has already do the same ? Because I didn't see any changes after I configured Netconf.

 

Could you help me?

 

thanks in advance.

Thibaud,

  I did a little digging into the use of netconf and it appears it is used for Juniper devices in order to gain an understanding of their internal connectivity.   For NNMi 9.1 and 9.2, with the appropriate patches, it allows for the internal L2 connectivity to be determined.  The source of these connections, in the inventory view, will be seen as "ISL".   For NNMi 10 the support has been extended to both VLans and also the stack members connectivity within the inventory and topology views.

  I hope this helps to explain the use of this technology.

  All the best

Thibaud,

 

  From the online help it does look like this is all you need to do.  Specify the user name and password you have configured on the Juniper device and NNMi will do the rest.   You might want to run a network trace and capture the traffic between NNMi and the device when you perform a config poll and a status poll as this may help to show if the SSH sessions are being set up and used or if they are failing.  

 

  if you are having problems then I would suggest opening a support case with us so we can help take a look.

 

  All the best

Hello Dave,

I configured the netconf on a device and ran a network trace to see what's happen.

I confirm that NNM use netconf to poll the device, but  I don't see any changes since I apply the netconf configuration.

I saw in the Device_support_matrix_guide that it's required for Juniper EX devices but I don't realy understand why. Because nothing change between before and after.

Regards
