Often there are instances where we want to affect all security policies configured on an SRX device. For example, let’s say that we have thousands of policies configured on our firewall, and we want to enable logging for every single policy. Obviously this would take some time if we were to do this manually on each and every individual policy, so an easier way is desired.
Today we’ll start with a series of articles covering tips and techniques that might be utilized by JNCIE candidates, whether pursuing the JNCIE-SP, JNCIE-ENT, or even the JNCIE-SEC. The tips and techniques I will be covering might prove to be useful during a lab attempt but could also be used in real-world scenarios to save time and minimize configuration burden in addition to eliminating mistakes that might otherwise be made. I want everyone to understand that what I am about to write is simply a technique. I am not divulging any materials or topics which are covered under NDA.
I am happy to announce that Juniper has just released a new Day One Guide entitled “Junos Tips, Techniques, and Templates 2011“. For this particular Day One Guide, Juniper Networks Books and J-Net joined forces and requested the best and brightest Junos tips and techniques from the Junos user community. In fact, the book was created after a thorough selection process which included reviewing over 300 submitted tips by over 100 individuals on the J-Net community boards at forums.juniper.net.
