What's Changed

Learn about what changed in this release for QFX Series Switches.


  • Commit error if interconnect and local route distinguishers have the same value-On EVPN data center interconnect (DCI) gateway devices, if you configure an interconnect RD at the [edit routing-instances name protocols evpn interconnect] hierarchy, the interconnect RD must be different from the local RD in the routing instance. If you try to configure the same value for the interconnect RD and the local RD in a routing instance, the device enforces this requirement by throwing a commit error. However, with DCI seamless stitching for EVPN Type 5 routes, you don't see the commit error prior to this release. Starting in this release, the device throws the commit error to enforce this condition for DCI stitching with Type 5 routes.

Network Management and Monitoring

  • operator login class is restricted from viewing NETCONF trace files that are no-world-readable (ACX Series, EX Series, MX Series, PTX Series, QFX Series, SRX Series, vMX, and vSRX)—When you configure NETCONF tracing options at the [edit system services netconf traceoptions] hierarchy level and you restrict file access to the file owner by setting or omitting the no-world-readable statement (the default), users assigned to the operator login class do not have permissions to view the trace file.

Platform and Infrastructure

  • The ping host | display xml command produces CLI output without errors (ACX Series, PTX Series, and QFX Series) — In Junos OS release 22.4R2, the ping host | display xml command now produces CLI output formatted in XML.

Software Installation and Upgrade

  • New options for the request system snapshot command (ACX Series, EX Series, MX Series, PTX Series, QFX Series, and SRX Series)—The request system snapshot command includes new options for non-recovery snapshots. You can include the name option to specify a user-defined name for the snapshot, and you can include the configuration or no-configuration option to include or exclude configuration files in the snapshot. By default, the snapshot saves the configuration files, which include the contents of the /config and /var directories and certain SSH files.
