Firmware Download Failures

‎08-11-2018 08:39 PM



I'm new to the Juniper product line.. Per the firmware download instructions page, I'm attempting to upgrade my switch's firmware to do some testing in my lab. I've followed the usage instructions exactly and am receiving a file-fetch failed error. Does anyone have some insight on this? It looks like I'm receiving an authentication error even though I copied the URL download link right from the page itself. Might this indicate there's an error with Juniper's download site?

It looks like your switch is running a Junos image without crypto. This means that ssh and access to https sites will not function.

You see it with the notice "SSL support disabled".


An alternative could be to fetch the Junos firmware to your local machine, upload it to a ftp server which the switch can reach - or just dump the firmware to a USB-drive and copy the firmware that way.
