Notes

Note

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.

  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 15.1X49-D15.4, vqfx-10000 JUNOS Version 15.1X53-D60.4.

  • Recommended connection is netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
