Rebooting and Halting Hardware Components of the Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router


In a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router, you can control which hardware component is rebooted or halted. If you reboot or halt the TX Matrix Plus router, by default you also reboot or halt the master Routing Engines on all T1600 or T4000 routers. To reboot a specific component, issue the request system reboot command with the all-lcc, lcc, or sfc option.

user@host> request system reboot

To halt a specific component in a routing matrix, issue the request system halt command with the all-lcc, lcc, or sfc option.


Before entering this command, you must have access to the TX Matrix Plus console port and the console ports of all of the LCCs in order to bring up the Routing Engines.

Issuing the request system halt both-routing-engines command on a TX Matrix Plus router halts both Routing Engines in the TX Matrix Plus router and both Routing Engines in all T1600 or T4000 routers in the routing matrix. To reboot a Routing Engine that has been halted, you must connect through the console.
