Software end of support nearing-juniper-junos
indeni will trigger an issue a significant time before the software running on a device reaches end of support.
Upgrade the software to a more recent release.
|||1. Run “show version” command to review the current software version.
|2. Ensure the current software version is supported by Juniper.
|3. Review Juniper support site for full information regarding software end of life: <a target="_blank" href=“https://www.juniper.net/support/eol/#software”>End of Life Products & Milestones
|4. Contact Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) if further assistance is required.
How does this work?
This script logs into the Juniper JUNOS-based device using SSH to retrieve the current software version and based on the software version and the Juniper provided information at: http://www.juniper.net/support/eol/junos.html the correct end of support date is used.
Why is this important?
Ensuring the software being used is always within the vendor’s list of supported versions is critical. Otherwise, during a critical issue, the vendor may decline to provide technical support. Juniper posts the list of supported software on their website: http://www.juniper.net/support/eol/junos.html
Without Indeni how would you find this?
Manual tracking by an administrator is usually the only method for knowing when a given device may be nearing its software end of support and is in need of upgrading.
