Configuring Multiple Routing Engines to Synchronize Committed Configurations Automatically

If your router or switch has multiple Routing Engines, you can manually direct one Routing Engine to synchronize its configuration with the others by issuing the commit synchronize command.

To make the Routing Engines synchronize automatically whenever a configuration is committed, include the commit synchronize statement at the [edit system] hierarchy level:

[edit system]commit synchronize;

The Routing Engine on which you execute the commit command (requesting Routing Engine) copies and loads its candidate configuration to the other (responding) Routing Engines. All Routing Engines then perform a syntax check on the candidate configuration file being committed. If no errors are found, the configuration is activated and becomes the current operational configuration on all Routing Engines.
