Just in case anyone hasn't happened to hear this news.  It was difficult to find an official article by Juniper on this earlier this week but something finally was just published 2/17/2017.

Yes, I read about it, but just lke you said nothing officail other than what reddit had posted. Hopefully the consumers using the product get the fix before it crashes. I think Juniper should reach out to them or even pay for an ad. The cost of both efforts will be worth much less than if a major consumer's systems were bricked. That fallout would be monumental.

The official note is TSB17030 -  https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=TSB17030&smlogin=true&actp=search 

 

The

PRODUCT AFFECTED:

MPC7E-10G


MPC7E-MRATE


MX2K-MPC8E


MX2K-MPC9E


EX9200-12QS


EX9200-40Xs


FPC3-PTX-U2


FPC3-PTX-U3


FPC3-SFF-PTX-U1


CB2-PTX


PTX-IPLC-B-32


PTX-ILA-M-AC


PTX-ILA-M-CHAS

 

The only switching products affected are the latest module for EX9200, which have not been out long enough to even get near the time period for potential failure.  Juniper is addressing this whole situation, a lot more customer centric than Cisco for sure.

Yeah, Intel really messed up on this one.  Cisco had the misfortune to use this chip on a LOT of devices.  Luckily for us Juniper only had this on a limited set.

 

Still waiting for the other shoe to drop with all the other major vendors as they sort out where they used this chip and if the design hits the bug.
