Replace Switch

Overview You can replace a switch without disrupting network service on your Network topology by retaining the existing configuration of the switch. Also note that this topic does not apply to replacing a switch in a virtual chassis.   Replace a switch via UI Prerequisites The switch to be replaced must be already claimed/adopted on...

Administrator Roles for Switches

Super User Read/write access to entire organization. No restrictions. Network Admin (All Sites Access) Cannot claim switches Able to adopt switches Cannot release the switch Able to click on switch to see details Able to access utility tools (ping, trace route, cable test, bounce port) Can access switch shell Able to reboot the switch Can...

Deleting commands from Juniper switches

Once you have any of your Juniper EX switches managed by Mist cloud environment it is advised not to make any configuration changes from the switch CLI rather make use of Site/Template/Rule-based/Additional CLI Commands. To remove any config from the switch we need to append ‘delete’ for any command that needs to be deleted. EX:...

QoS for Switches

In a congested environment, Quality of Service(QoS) helps with ensuring that latency-sensitive traffic (such as voice) are prioritized over other traffic. QoS generally involves the following 4 aspects: Classification of Traffic Defining traffic to queue mapping (Forwarding Classes) Defining rules for each queue which help in priority, bandwidth control, providing congestion management etc. of the...

Storm Control

What is storm-control & why enable it on Port Profile? A traffic storm is generated when messages are broadcast on a network and each message prompts a receiving node to respond by broadcasting its own messages on the network. This, in turn, prompts further responses, creating a snowball effect. The LAN is suddenly flooded with...

API with Wired Assurance

The API provides the same functionality as the UI, but through a programmable interface.  There are primarily 3 main URI endpoints of interest with respect to Wired Assurance. API Endpoints: Network Templates: Documentation is located just below RF Templates here: https://api.mist.com/api/v1/docs/Org#rf-template Create Network Template POST: https://api.mist.com/api/v1/orgs/:org_id/networktemplates Payload: JSON Formatted Payload Required: name Get List of...

Wired Visibility with 3rd Party Switches

Leveraging a standards based approach, Mist can already deliver visibility on the full access layer network topology , as well as monitor, measure and alert on key compliance metrics for the wired network. Specific to the wired network, the Juniper-Mist Microservices cloud solution can deliver visibility on: Version Compliance: Find switches running dissimilar firmware and...

Best Practices for switch port configs

Here are some recommended configurations for your switch ports to work seamlessly with the Mist APs: On a trunk port, prune all the unwanted VLANs – only the required VLANs (based on WLANs) should be part of allowed VLANs. Since our APs do not save the configuration by default, APs should be able to get...
