Configuring the rms Interface

You must first create and specify the primary and secondary service PIC and the inside and outside service domains. When a new rms interface is created, PICs designated as primary and secondary reboot automatically. If either the primary or secondary PIC, or both, are changed, the corresponding old and new rms interfaces reboot automatically.

To configure the rms interface:

  1. Configure and enter edit mode for the interface.
    [edit]user@host# edit interfaces rms0
  2. Specify the service PIC that is to be the primary PIC.
    [edit interfaces rms0]user@host# set redundancy-options primary ms-1/2/0
  3. Specify the service PIC that is to be the secondary PIC.
    [edit interfaces rms0]user@host# set redundancy-options secondary ms-1/3/0
  4. (Optional) Configure hot standby to ensure that failover occurs in 5 seconds or less.
    [edit interfaces rms0]user@host# set redundancy-options hot-standby
  5. Configure a logical unit and specify the protocol family.
    [edit interfaces rms0]user@host# set unit 0 family inet
