Roadmap for Configuring a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router

This topic summarizes the procedure for configuring a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router.

To configure a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router, complete the following tasks:

  1. Connect to the Routing Engines of the routing matrix, as described in Connecting to a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
  2. Create and apply Routing Engine configuration groups, as described in Using Configuration Groups and Inheritance in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

    In general, configuration groups and inheritance of the statements in configuration groups support configuration of various router components. The special Routing Engine configuration groups (re0, re1, lccn-re0, and lccn-re1, where n is a value from 0 through 3) offer a simple way to establish hostnames, management interfaces, and default routes for the Routing Engines in the routing matrix.

  3. Adjust certain configuration statements to accommodate the global number of FPCs installed on the routing matrix, as described in Using Global FPC Numbering for Interfaces in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
  4. (Optional) Configure protocols and other features on the routing matrix, as described in Configuring Protocols and Other Features on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

    Other than the expanded range of FPC numbers for interfaces and the requirement to create groups for the routers, you can configure protocols in exactly the same manner as you would for other Juniper Networks routers.

  5. (Optional) For T1600 routers in a routing matrix, you can configure PIC-specific features, create an alarm LCCs that do not come online, and take LCCs offline. For more information, see Configuring Chassis-Specific Features on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
  6. Commit configurations on the routing matrix, as described in Committing Configurations on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
