Scheduled JUNOS upgrade

‎07-22-2016 11:30 AM

Hello

 

Is there any way to schedule automatic upgrade of JUNOS in EX series swithces. For exampe

 

 

We have 50 number of swithes that need upgrade and I need some kind of script that can schedule the upgrade of JUNOS code at specific period of time without any user intervention.

 

Overall means automatic upgarde of JUNOS at specific period of time.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance !!!

Hi,


Here are a few tools available that could perform this.

 

  1. Junos Space (http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos-space15.2/platform/topics/concept/junos-space-deviceimag...)
  2. Ansible (http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos-ansible1.0/topics/example/junos-ansible-playbooks-device...)
  3. PyEz (http://junos-pyez.readthedocs.io/en/latest/jnpr.junos.utils.html#module-jnpr.junos.utils.sw)

 

Of course, it all depends greatly on what you would feel comfortable doing this with etc.

 

I recently did an upgrade of 100+ EX-4300's VC's (approx 600 members in total) using Ansible 2.0 and this included pre-checks, upgrade and post-checks, and ran in just under an hour.
