Configuring the JUNOS Software to Enable the TX Matrix Plus Router to Generate an Alarm If a T1600 Router Stays Offline

By default, the JUNOS Software enables all the T1600 routers in the routing matrix to come online. The JUNOS Software also enables you to configure all the T1600 routers so that if they do not come online, an alarm is sent by the TX Matrix Plus router.

To configure this alarm, include the online-expected statement at the [edit chassis lcc number] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis lcc number]online-expected;

If you do not want a T1600 router to be part of the routing matrix, you can configure it to be offline. This is useful when you are performing maintenance on a T1600 router. When the T1600 router is ready to come back online, delete the offline configuration statement.

To configure a T1600 router so that it is offline, include the offline statement at the [edit chassis lcc number] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis lcc number]offline;

Note: If you do not configure the online-expected or offline statement, any T1600 router that is part of the routing matrix is allowed to come online. However, if a T1600 router does not come online, the TX Matrix Plus router does not generate an alarm.
