Question

What is the MSS OS adapter?

Answer

To manage devices, Network Director uses Juniper Network’s Device Management Interface (DMI), which is an extension to the NETCONF network configuration protocol. Because Mobility System Software (MSS) running on WLC Series wireless LAN controllers does not support DMI, an MSS OS adapter is used to translate communications between Network Director and WLC Series controllers.

 

The MSS OS adapter is automatically installed when you install Network Director. To verify that it is installed:

 

  1. Click the Space Platform icon in the Network Director banner.
    The Network Application Platform dashboard appears.
  2. Select Devices > Device Adapter from the tasks list.
  3. Confirm that MSSOSADAPTER appears in the list of device adapters.

For a complete list of the supported devices and their required operating system version, refer to the Supported Platforms section in the Network Director Release Notes.
