Add New Software
To add new software packages, use the following Junos OS CLI operational mode command:
package-name is the full URL to the file and release-number is the major software release number; for example, 4.2R1. Before the new software is added, the existing software is automatically deleted.
Even though you are adding the new software, the changes do not take effect until the router has completed rebooting.
