Powering Off the M7i Router


To power off the router:

  1. On the console or other management device connected to the master Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the router software. (If two Routing Engines are installed, also issue the command on the backup Routing Engine.)
    user@host> request system halt

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

    For more information about the command, see the CLI Explorer.


    The CFEB might continue forwarding traffic for approximately 5 minutes after the request system halt command has been issued.

  2. Press the power switch on each power supply faceplate to the OFF (O) position.
  3. Shut down power to the router by pressing the power switch for all power supplies to the off (O) position. On both AC and DC power supplies, the switch is located on the power supply faceplate.
