[Junos Space] Cannot detect IPS/IDP license for SRX device(s)



Article ID: KB29452 KB Last Updated: 16 Sep 2014Version: 1.0

This article provides information on how to detect the IPS/IDP license installed on the device in Junos Space.


When attempting to Publish the firewall policy from Security Director, the Warning message below is sometimes encountered even if an IDP license is installed on the device:

[Warning]: This device does not support IPS feature or IPS license is unavailable. Commit may fail on device for IPS configuration.


Junos Space does not synchronize the IPS/IDP licenses on devices automatically if the licenses are added after device-discovery.


To detect an IPS/IDP license installed on a device in Junos Space, perform the procedure below.

1. Log into the Junos Space Web UI, then switch to Security Director > Downloads > Signature Database > Install Configuration.

2. On the Space Web UI, perform a Full Probe or Delta Probe.

  • A Delta Probe scans only for missing devices.

  • A Full Probe scans for all the devices managed by Junos Space.

3. After the Probe is completed, the devices are listed. If a device is listed, it has an IPS license.

4. Install the IPS signature on the device. You can now Publish the policy without receiving the Warning message.
