Release Information

Command introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

sfc option for TX Matrix Plus router introduced in Junos OS Release 9.6.

Description

Display or stop a text message on the craft interface display, which is on the front of the router, or on the LCD panel display on the switch. The craft interface alternates the display of text messages with standard craft interface messages three times, switching between messages every 60 seconds.

Note

On T Series routers, when this command is executed with the permanent option, the display of the text message alternates with that of the standard craft interface message continuously every 60 seconds.

By default, on both the router and the switch, the text message is displayed for 5 minutes. The craft interface display has four 20-character lines. The LCD panel display has two 16-character lines, and text messages appear only on the second line.

Options

"message"Message to display. On the craft interface display, if the message is longer than 20 characters, it wraps onto the next line. If a word does not fit on one line, the entire word moves down to the next line. Any portion of the message that does not fit on the display is truncated. An empty pair of quotation marks (“ ”) deletes the text message from the craft interface display. On the LCD panel display, the message is limited to 16 characters.
fpc-slot slot-number(TX Matrix Plus routers and EX4200 and QFX Series only) On the router or switch, display the text message on the craft interface for a specific Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC). Replace slot-number with a value from 0 through 31. On the switch, display the text message for a specific member of a Virtual Chassis, where fpc-slot slot-number corresponds to the member ID. Replace slot-number with a value from 0 through 9. On the QFX Series, the slot-number is always 0. On a TX Matrix Plus router with 3D SIBs replace slot-number with a value from 0 through 63.
lcc number(TX Matrix router and TX Matrix Plus router only) (Optional) Line-card chassis number.

Replace number with the following values depending on the LCC configuration:

  • 0 through 3, when T640 routers are connected to a TX Matrix router in a routing matrix.

  • 0 through 3, when T1600 routers are connected to a TX Matrix Plus router in a routing matrix.

  • 0 through 7, when T1600 routers are connected to a TX Matrix Plus router with 3D SIBs in a routing matrix.

  • 0, 2, 4, or 6, when T4000 routers are connected to a TX Matrix Plus router with 3D SIBs in a routing matrix.

permanent(Optional) Display a text message on the craft interface display or LCD panel display permanently.
scc(TX Matrix routers only) Display the text message on the craft interface display of the TX Matrix router (switch-card chassis).
sfc number(TX Matrix Plus routers only) Display the text message on the craft interface display of the TX Matrix Plus router (or switch-fabric chassis).
