    Meaning

    The output from the show chassis hardware command indicates that you are logged in to the master Routing Engine because this command can only be used on the master Routing Engine.

    If you are not logged in to the master Routing Engine, you will see the following command output:

    user@host> show chassis hardware
    error: Aborted! This command can only be used on the master routing engine.
