Activating Dual CPE Devices (Device Redundancy)
You can activate a device after the device status is changed to EXPECTED in the Sites page. When you see the device status is EXPECTED, it indicates that the device is ready to be activated. If you see the device status as Undefined, contact your service provider for assistance.
You must activate both the primary and the secondary devices simultaneously.
You must use the same device model for both primary and secondary devices and the devices must have the same version of Junos OS installed.
