Configuring the Redundancy Services PIC (rsp) Interface

Use this procedure to configure, create a redundancy services PIC (rsp) interface, and specify the primary and secondary service PIC and the inside and outside service domains.

To configure the rsp interface:

  1. Configure the interface, and enter edit mode for the interface.
    [edit]user@host# edit interfaces rsp1
  2. Specify the service PIC that is to be the primary PIC.
    [edit interfaces rsp1]user@host# set redundancy-options primary sp-1/2/0
  3. Specify the service PIC that is to be the secondary PIC.
    [edit interfaces rsp1]user@host# set redundancy-options secondary sp-1/3/0
  4. (Optional) Configure hot standby to ensure that failover occurs in 5 seconds or less.
    [edit interfaces rsp1]user@host# set redundancy-options hot-standby
  5. Configure logical units to be used in a service interface pool to provide inside and outside interfaces. Specify the protocol family for each interface..
    [edit interfaces rsp1]user@host# set unit 10 family inet[edit interfaces rsp1]user@host# set unit 20 family inet
  6. Configure a service interface pool that contains the configured logical interfaces.
