    Use the Proper Shutdown Process on a Backup Routing Engine

    The request system halt command only shuts down the Routing Engine you are logged in to; the other Routing Engine is still running and may be performing file management or some other task that could create anomalies.

    user@re0> request system halt
    user@re0> request system halt
    warning: This command will not halt the other routing-engine.
    If planning to switch off power, use the both-routing-engines option.
    Halt the system ? [yes,no] (no)
    *** FINAL System shutdown message from root@utah ***                         
    System going down IMMEDIATELY                                                  
                                                                                   
                                                                                   
    shutdown: [pid 8669]
    Shutdown NOW!
    

    This command only shuts down the Routing Engine you are logged in to. To shut down both Routing Engines, use the both-routing-engines option or log in to the other Routing Engine and perform the shutdown again.
