    [edit multi-chassis mc-lag consistency-check]

    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 17.4R1 for EX Series switches.


    Configure a delay in the consistency check between peers in a Multichassis Link Aggregation Group (MC-LAG).

    MC-LAG configuration consistency check uses the Inter-Chassis Control Protocol (ICCP) to exchange MC-LAG configuration parameters, such as chassis ID or service ID, and checks for any configuration inconsistencies across MC-LAG peers. When there is an inconsistency, you are notified and can take action to resolve it. Only committed MC-LAG parameters are checked for consistency.

    When the MC-LAG configuration is committed, the local and remote configuration parameters are not compared immediately, but with a delay of 180 seconds. When MC-LAG is configured along with configuration sync, the comparison delay allows sufficient time for the configuration to be synced to the peer. You can use the comparison-delay-time statement to change the default comparison delay time of 180 seconds. This is useful in cases where 180 seconds is not enough of a delay to allow for a sync of the configuration. You can also configure a shorter comparison delay time is 180 seconds is too long.


    secondsConfigure the duration of the comparison delay in seconds.

    Default: If the comparison-delay-time is not configured, the comparison delay time is 180 seconds.

    Range: 5 to 600 seconds.
