my search somehow does not turn up any results.
my new company has juniper firewalls, firewall clusters and switches ( i am used to BSD firewalls like pfsense ). i can get around this juniper-in-between-config-layer quite well on the firewalls in the jweb with just using the cli editor, but now i have to edit the config on a switch.
where is the config in the file system when i want to edit it with vi?
i found articles about using cli and all that show-set thing, but it already stops being helpful when i want to add a list of clients, because the articles always say "add list" and then they add one client. no mention how to add more, like seperate them with space, comma, semikolon?
so i just want to edit the config like i do with the jweb cli editor. just edit it, confirm and commit.
how to do that? do i have to unzip /config/juniper.conf.1.gz, unzip it, edit it, zip it, and commit it somehow?
Junos is not designed to edit configs directly that way. You need to do a candidate config and commit from inside Junos at least. So I think this process would work.
Extract and edit the running config as you mention but save it as an uncompressed file
Enter the cli
enter configuraiton mode
load override /path/file
close and commit
