preprovisioned (MX Series Virtual Chassis)


Hierarchy Level


Enable creation of a Virtual Chassis by means of a preprovisioned configuration.

To configure a Virtual Chassis consisting of MX Series routers, you must create a preprovisioned configuration on the primary router in the Virtual Chassis by specifying the serial number, member ID, and role for each router (member chassis) in the Virtual Chassis. When a new member router joins the Virtual Chassis, its serial number is compared against the values specified in the preprovisioned configuration. If the serial number of a joining router does not match any of the configured serial numbers, the software prevents that router from becoming a member of the Virtual Chassis.
