How to change role from Linecard to Backup

‎07-18-2014 09:21 AM

I currently have a virtual chassis with two EX4550s where one is the master and the other has the linecard role.  What is the best and easiest method for changing the member with the linecard role to the backup role with minimal/no downtime?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

You can check this link

 

http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos13.2/topics/task/configuration/virtual-chassis-ex3300-cli...

 

preprovisioned configuration from step.7 to step.9

 

so you can choose the role of each switch based on the serial number. No downtime for user traffic, you might logout from the switch then you can login again after modifying the roles according to your config.
