So, we have been going through all sorts of Juniper stuff these days. We went to a juniper boot camp or two. The first was on switching where we used a remote lab to practice (remote labs suck) and the second was on wireless AP where they had gear and it was a much nicer experience.
So I have a EX2200-C and I was trying to configure it, sweet look there is a mini usb port on the front labeled CON (for console hopefully) I russle up a mini usb plug it in install the drivers fire up putty and…..
So hit the google, of course the mini-usb isn’t enabled (I guess you only get one, serial or mini-usb) to enable:
- Connect the host machine to the switch using the management console port
- Configure the port type:
user@switch# set system ports auxiliary port-type type
For example, to activate the Mini USB Type-B console port:
user@switch# set system ports auxiliary port-type mini-usb
- Commit the configuration and Exit.
- Reboot the switch. The control and the boot log will appear on the activated console.
hmmmm It would sure be nice if there was a way this could be activated right out of the box….
