The current mgmt switches are Netgear switches, the access switches refresh project freed up a bunch of EX4200 that can be used for mgmt instead.
Bringing POE for the cameras (T207965), as well as the possibility to manage them the same way as the prod infra (automation, etc...).
In addition to the manual work required to swap them, a challenge is to provision them (wipe, upgrade, assign IP, configure). At about 1 switch per rack, doing it manually would be very time consuming.
The mgmt network doesn't have DHCP, and ZTP (Juniper auto-provisioning) would probably be a side project of its own.
To start and see what the default configuration and our options looks like, could you please:
- Connect a ex4200 to console (and update Netbox)
- Make sure nothing else is connected to it (VC links, etc)
- Plug a USB drive containing install1002:/srv/junos/jinstall-ex-4200-15.1R7.9-domestic-signed.tgz
- Power on the device
