Configure the New Group

Purpose

Each re0 or re1 group typically contains, at a minimum, the configuration for the hostname and the management interface (fxp0). If each Routing Engine uses a different management interface, the group must also contain the configuration for the backup router and static routes.

Action

To configure the re0 and re1 groups, follow these steps:

  1. In configuration mode, go to the following hierarchy level:
    [edit] user@host# edit groups
  2. Configure the group:
    [edit groups]user@host# set group-name

    For example:

    [edit groups] user@host# set re0
  3. To configure the management interface, go to the following hierarchy level:
    [edit groups]user@host# edit groups re0
  4. Include the following statement:
    [edit groups re0]user@host# set interfaces interface-name unit unit family inet address address

    For example:

    [edit groups re0]user@host# set interfaces fxp0 unit 0 family inet address 1.1.1.1/24
  5. To configure the hostname, go to the following hierarchy level:
    [edit groups re0]user@host# edit groups re0 system
  6. Include the following statement:
    [edit groups re0 system]user@host# set host-name hostname

    For example:

    [edit groups re0 system]user@host# set host-name foo-re0
  7. Verify the configuration:
    [edit groups re0]user@host# show re0 { system { host-name foo-re0;} interfaces { fxp0 { unit 0 { family inet { address 1.1.1.1/24;}}}}}
  8. Commit the configuration:
    user@host# commit
  9. Repeat Step 1 through Step 8 for the re1 group.

Meaning

The sample output in Step 7 shows that the re0 group contains the minimum configuration for a group, the hostname, and the management interface (fxp0). If each Routing Engine uses a different management interface, the group must also contain the configuration for the backup router and static routes.
