request system software validate on (Junos OS with Upgraded FreeBSD)

 

Syntax

Release Information

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 15.1 for supported platforms. See Feature Explorer.

Description

Direct validation of a running configuration is not possible on a device running Junos OS with upgraded FreeBSD. Nevertheless, validation is an important step in the installation of an upgraded operating system. This command allows validation on a device that is not running Junos OS with upgraded FreeBSD.

This command validates the current configuration on a Routing Engine that is not running Junos OS with upgraded FreeBSD or a remote host.

Options

The specific options available are:

host host-name [ username user-name ]Validate the current configuration on a remote host. The host-name is resolved through DNS. Optionally, you can supply a username to employ on the remote host. If you omit the username option, the currently logged-in user-name is sent to the remote host.
routing-engine (re0 | re1)Validate the current configuration on another Routing Engine on the same device. The other Routing Engine cannot be running Junos OS with upgraded FreeBSD or the validation does not succeed.

Additional Information

If the authenticity of the remote host cannot be established, you are prompted to continue the validation or not. If you choose not to continue, the validation process does not take place.
