Do you use the I2J tool?

Have you heard of the I2J tool? It is a configuration translator that helps you migrate from IOS to JUNOS, hence the name, I2J.  If you are a customer with a support contract, you have access to it today.

 

We've recently updated it and Roy Lee, the JUNOS Product Manager responsible for it, did a blog post, with a short video, talking about it.  You can see the blog and video here: http://forums.juniper.net/t5/Networking-Now/bg-p/networkingnow


Thanks,

How often does the tool get updated to include new translation features?

The I2J tool is updated and released 4 times a year. It is aligned with the JUNOS release timeline. For example, I2J 9.6 is scheduled to be released by the end of Aug.  I2J 10.0 is planned for Nov '09.

To access the tool, you need to have a valid support contract. Using your Juniper CSC login, you should be able to access the I2J tool page:

I have used this quite a bit in the past but haven't had a need recently.  It's a very handy tool!

I recently used this tool to move 400 services (l2circuits and routed subinterfaces mostly) from a Cisco router to a MX.  It worked excellently.  You do need to read through the config and make sure it assumes the correct things, but 99% of it was correct, and I'm very pleased with the amount of time that it saved me during this major migration.
