request node halt (Junos OS Evolved)

Syntax

Description

Use this command to halt a Routing Engine (RE). Halt instructs the hardware to stop all CPU functions but leave the node in a powered-on, standby state. To un-halt the node, do one of the following:

  • Issue the request chassis cb slot slot-number online operational mode command from the primary RE.

  • Log in to the console port for that node and press any key to reboot the node.

Note:

We do not recommend leaving a node halted for a long period of time, because the node is not available as a backup in case something happens to the primary RE.
