NFX connection issues

NFX250 connection to OneConfig with "D45" ssh issues.

The NFX250's software release 15.1X53-D45.3 (aka "D45") introduced the ability for it to connect to OneConfig. However, it contains a bug that causes it to fail authentication in some circumstances.

JTAC recommend the following procedure to rectify the issue.

Start shell, as root, and then perform the following commands:

cp /etc/ssh/ /etc/ssh/ 
sed -i -e "s/ jdm/ root@jdm/" /etc/ssh/ 


If this does not resolve the issue, please contact for further assistance.

Update - April 20, 2017:

The NFX software issue is due to be resolved in an upcoming release of Junos. The "D47" which is slated for release in June 2017.

The NFX250 is an amazingly powerful platform. Learn more about what OneConfig does with NFX in our Lean Retail solution.
