How to perform initial switch configuration using EZsetup via CLI for the EX-series switch



Article ID: KB10908 KB Last Updated: 05 Mar 2017Version: 5.0
JUNOS for EX-series switches come with an EZsetup initial configuration wizard to help get your switch operational quickly. EZsetup automates the initial configuration by presenting a series of basic initial configuration options such as the management IP address, root password, system time settings, and management VLAN settings. The EZsetup wizard is available in both a J-Web GUI version and a CLI-based version. The information below describes the step to run EZsetup over CLI.


Initial Switch Configuration Using CLI

To configure the switch:

  1. Connect the console port to a laptop or PC using the RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter. The RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter are supplied with the switch.

  2. At the prompt type ezsetup.

  3. Enter the hostname.

  4. Enter the root password. You are prompted to re-enter the root password.

  5. Enter yes to enable services like telnet and SSH.

  6. Next, select one of the switch management options:

  7. Manage the switch using the default VLAN. In this scenario all data ports are configured as members of the default VLAN. Specify the management and gateway address for the default VLAN. This IP address is used to connect to the switch.

  8. Manage the switch using the management port. Specify the IP address and gateway of the management interface. Use this IP address to connect to the switch.

  9. Specify the SNMP Read Community, Location, and Contact to configure SNMP parameters. These parameters are optional.

  10. Specify the system date and time. Select the time zone from the list.

The configured parameters are displayed. Enter yes to save the configuration.
