Troubleshooting with Marvis – Cables and Photos

Marvis Actions is a pretty good tool that allows me to look at some issues proactively and resolve them.

Juniper EX4600 Layer 3 Config – DHCP – Part 2

In this second part I want to review DHCP configuration on the Juniper switch.

Our Wi-Fi is not working – Troubleshooting with Marvis

One of my customer called me this past week and told me that his guest Wi-Fi is down and not working.

Python: Adding description to Multiple Juniper Switch Ports

Adding descriptions to switch port is beneficial, I have always done it and it always helps when trying to troubleshoot, as long as those descriptions are up to date of course. I am new to programming and python and I think it is safe to say after seeing it in action and creating few of… Continue Reading Python: Adding description to Multiple Juniper Switch Ports
