### Confusion adding Juniper Device to ODL using netconf-connector

Hello All,

I'm trying to add a Juniper switch to Opendaylight database. The Juniper device supports netconf but it does NOT list netconf monitoring nor it's YANG capabilities in the Netconf hello exchange. In the Open Daylight user guide (I'm using Beryllium SR2), Chapter 34, there are instructions for "Connecting to a device not supporting NETCONF monitoring". I'm trying to following item 2 (NETCONF device does not support ietf-netconf-monitoring and it does NOT list its YANG models as capabilities in HELLO message). The documentation states to modify the configuration of netconf-connector by adding some XML statements. My question is what exact file do I add this to? Am I supposed to manually create a new file for this device in the directory below:

[allan@SDNAUTOS02 karaf]$pwd /home/allan/ODL/distribution-karaf-0.4.2-Beryllium-SR2/etc/opendaylight/karaf [allan@SDNAUTOS02 karaf]$ ls -l

OR

do I add the XML statements to the file:

/home/allan/ODL/distribution-karaf-0.4.2-Beryllium-SR2/etc/opendaylight/current/controller.currentconfig.xml

Note, the new device I'm trying to add is already present in the In the currentconfig.xml file. When using the POSTMAN to send RESTCONF GET commands, the status says "not connected". That makes sense because I need to setup the netconf-connector.
