I'm running 18.2 on an SRX340 per JTAC "recommended version". Version 19.4 exists but appeared to break some things during my initial install which after a call to JTAC I was informed of the recommended version.
I suspect there are enhancement to J-web in 19.4 that I'd like to take advantage of. Visual versus lots of command line can help efficiency and clarity at times
Is there a way yo upgrade j-web without entire firmware update?
Is there a list of active J-web enhancements being worked on?
I did find this posting which somewhat answers my question on published features, not future features.
You can safely upgrade the J-web package without changing the Junos version , for that just push the J-web package in var/tmp folder then issue the command request system software add /var/tmp/J-web-package name.
Sorry for my lack of knowledge here but I am not finding any instructions on how to extract the j-web package from the contents of the tgz which in this case is junos-srxsme-19.4R1.10-domestic file or if I can download the newest j-web package directly somehow? Still searching since getting your response. Thank You
There is no official list of things being worked on, but I know there is a general focus on speed and better useability. A lot of enhancements has made it into Junos 19.2 and especially 19.3 where updating policies, nat and related have gained major speed improvements.
As Steve pointed out, you cannot upgrade J-web seperately on the SRX series - this is a feature seperate for the EX switches.
Which kind of errors did you run into on 19.4? Even that JTAC recommends 18.2R3-S2 for now, they should still support you on all active releases. Maybe we can help you point out what went wrong and get you running 19.3 or 19.4. Personally I run 19.3 and 19.4 on a couple of SRX branch devices and haven't noticed any big issues - but honestly I'm not using the broadest feature set (only FW+NAT+IPS+IPsec VPN and routing-instances).
Thank You. When I first unboxed the 340 it had 15.x? loaded. I performed intial config's with j-web and had alot of odd anomalies. Updated to latest firmware 19.x, redid config a few times, ran into a few odd issues, some due to lack of my junos knowledge, some not, and opened a JTAC ticket. JTAC response was load preferred version. So that gave me a stable config after several iterations and learning, but I lost the j-web feature updates. I guess I can try loading latest firmware and see if any of my config breaks, but maintain the current version image on other boot partition. Some more reading for me.
