Deleting a Virtual Chassis Configuration for MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms

You can delete an MX Series Virtual Chassis configuration at any time. You might want to do so if your network configuration changes, or if you want to replace one or both MX Series member routers with different MX Series routers.

To delete a Virtual Chassis configuration for MX Series routers:

  1. Delete the Virtual Chassis ports from each member router.
  2. Delete the definitions and applications for the following configuration groups on each member router:
    • member0-re0

    • member0-re1

    • member1-re0

    • member1-re1

  3. Delete the preprovisioned member information configured at the [edit virtual-chassis] hierarchy level on the primary router.
  4. Delete any interfaces that were configured on the member routers when the Virtual Chassis was created.
  5. Delete the Virtual Chassis member IDs to reboot each router and disable Virtual Chassis mode.

You cannot override a Virtual Chassis configuration simply by using the load override command to load a different configuration on the router from an ASCII file or from terminal input, as you can with other configurations. The member ID and Virtual Chassis port definitions are not stored in the configuration file, and are still defined even after the new configuration file is loaded.
