Roadmap for Configuring a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router

 

This topic summarizes the procedures for configuring a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router.

To configure a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router, complete the following tasks:

  1. Plan your hardware configuration. Determine the SFC configuration size for the TX Matrix Plus router, and the LCC chassis ID for each T1600 or T4000 router to be added to the routing matrix. For more details, see the TX Matrix Plus Hardware Guide.

  2. Install and configure the TX Matrix Plus router, including setting the SFC chassis ID and the configuration size. If you are upgrading to 3D SIBs, you must change the SFC configuration size to 03. For more information about the initial hardware installation and configuration procedures, upgrade procedures, and setting the chassis ID and configuration size, see the TX Matrix Plus Hardware Guide.

  3. (Only for a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router with 3D SIBs) Log on to the TX Matrix Plus router and configure the LCC mode for each T1600 or T4000 router to be added to the routing matrix. For more information, see lcc-mode.

    Note

    You can set the LCC mode before the LCCs are connected to the routing matrix.

  4. Install the standalone T1600 or T4000 routers. For more information, see T1600 Router Hardware Guide and T4000 Router Hardware Guide.

  5. Upgrade, connect, and integrate the T1600 or T4000 LCC into the routing matrix, including setting the LCC chassis ID. For more information, see the TX Matrix Plus Hardware Guide.

    Note

    After the LCCs are integrated into the routing matrix, all configuration and operational commands for the LCC are performed from the TX Matrix Plus router.

  6. Log on to the TX Matrix Plus Router. For more information, see the TX Matrix Plus Hardware Guide.

  7. Verify that the same Junos OS version is loaded on TX Matrix Plus router and the LCCs using the show version command.

  8. Create and apply Routing Engine configuration groups, as described in Using Configuration Groups and Inheritance in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

    In general, configuration groups and inheritance of the statements in configuration groups support configuration of various router components. The special Routing Engine configuration groups (re0, re1, lccn-re0, and lccn-re1, where n is the LCC number) offer a simple way to establish hostnames, management interfaces, and default routes for the Routing Engines in the routing matrix.

  9. Adjust certain configuration statements to accommodate the global number of FPCs installed on the LCCs, as described in Using Global FPC Numbering for Interfaces in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

  10. (Optional) Configure protocols and other features on the routing matrix, as described in Configuring Protocols and Other Features on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

    Other than the expanded range of FPC numbers for interfaces and the requirement to create groups for the routers, you can configure protocols in exactly the same manner as you would for other Juniper Networks routers.

  11. (Optional) For T1600 or T4000 LCCs in a routing matrix, you can configure PIC-specific features, create an alarm for LCCs that do not come online, and take LCCs offline. For more information, see Configuring Chassis-Specific Features on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

  12. Commit configurations on the routing matrix, as described in Committing Configurations on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
