Configuring a Routing Engine to Reboot or Halt on Hard Disk Errors (NSM Procedure)

You can configure a Routing Engine to halt or reboot automatically when a hard disk error occurs. A hard disk error may cause a Routing Engine to enter a state in which it responds to local pings and interfaces remain up, but no other processes are responding.

To Configure Routing Engine to reboot or halt:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select Chassis > Routing Engine.
  4. Add or modify Routing Engine settings as specified in Table 36.
  5. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
