Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 16.2.


Set the service PIC boot timeout value to 240 or 300 seconds for every services PIC on the MX Series router if you are configuring more than 24 members in an aggregated multiservices (AMS) interface. We recommend setting the boot timeout value to 240. Starting with Junos OS Release 16.2, an AMS interface can have up to 32 member interfaces. In Junos OS Release 16.1 and earlier, an AMS interface can have a maximum of 24 member interfaces.

If you do not set the timeout value to 240 or 300 and you configure an AMS interface with more than 24 members, the default value of 180 causes some of the service PICs to go offline.
