Lost power on Juniper 4200 and upon rebooting, the switches lose their configuration.

There have been several instances in which our branch offices have lost power, and upon rebooting, our switches lose their configuration. The switches run version 12.3R6.6. 

I would appreciate some assistance in developing a best-practice approach to this issue so that we can be more proactive in the future.

Thanks

Sounds like you might be missing the snapshot process.  The snapshot makes a backup copy of both the OS and configuration so if the drive is corrupted during a power event all is still there.

 

request system snapshot slice alternate
