Fridaybird used Ask the Experts™
Hi There,

I have just upgraded software on a Juniper Srx210H Device. newly installed Software version is 10.4R3.4 and after rebooting i am receiving this error message:

could not open user interface connection: management daemon not responding

 I have not deleted any Default setting yet, i mean default interfcaces, vlans, zones or policey are intact.

Can any one help please?

Is this error on your CLI accedss or web UI access?

Have you tried to reboot the device gracefully?  ie press the power button once and let it gracefully shut down, followed by a restart?


i did that multiple times. same reulst each time.


By the way i am on CLI

Can you paste the output here for me to look at please?

Just want to confirm the exact error to help me assist further


here is Screen Cap. I hope its readable.
Have you created any other users on the device and tried to log in as them?  all other users should take you into the Junos CLI rather than the BSD shell.

This error looks like a problem with the upgrade.

I would suggest you try to reset the device to factory defaults and/or reinstall junos completely, just to remove the possibly erroneous files.

Have a look at and let me know how this goes.


Well, Device is out of the box state. No configuration made on it. but i will try factory defualt reste and let you know.


It Worked, after factiry default reset and then deleteing all default settings(interfaces, vlans, zones etc) i ran Software update again. Then a Sobber restart. and all Worked.

Thanx for your help, I really appreciate that.
