Powering Off the TX Matrix Router


To power off the TX Matrix router:

  1. On the external management device connected to the Routing Engine, issue the request system halt both-routing-engines operational mode command. The command shuts down the Routing Engines cleanly, so their state information is preserved. (If the TX Matrix router contains only one Routing Engine, issue the request system halt command.)
    user@host> request system halt both-routing-engines

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted. For more information about the command, see request system halt.

  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Switch the circuit breakers on each power supply faceplate to the off position (O).
