New and Changed Features
Authentication and Access Control
•
Access control (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, EX9200 switches
support controlling access to your network by using several different authentication
methods: 802.1X authentication, MAC RADIUS authentication, or captive portal. You
now enable the authentication-whitelist statement at the [edit switching-options]
hierarchy level instead of at the [edit ethernet-switching-options] hierarchy level.
[See Access Control on EX9200 Switches].
Bridging and Learning
•
Support for PVLANs (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, EX9200 switches
support private VLANs. Private VLANs are useful for restricting the flow of broadcast
and unknown unicast traffic and for limiting communication between known hosts.
Private VLANs help ensure the security of service providers sharing a server farm, or to
provide security to subscribers of various service providers sharing a common
metropolitan area network.
NOTE: An interface can belong to only one private VLAN domain.
[See Understanding Private VLANs on EX Series Switches.]
Class of Service
•
Layer 2 class of service (CoS) support (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.2R1, EX9200 switches support the following Layer 2 CoS features: DSCP IPv4 and
DSCP IPv6 rewrite on Layer 2 access and trunk ports, inet-precedence rewrite on Layer
2 access and trunk ports, IEEE 802.1p rewrite on access ports, and IEEE 802.1p classifiers
on access ports. The rewrite feature enables you to change the code point bits of
packets when they egress the switch. Classification groups packets into forwarding
classes at the ingress interface, based on the IEEE 802.1p code point in the Ethernet
frame header. (Classification can also use DSCP IPv4 or DSCP IPv6 code points. You
can configure both an IEEE 802.1p classifier and a DSCP classifier on the same port.)
You can configure the new Layer 2 CoS support features at the [edit class-of-service
rewrite-rules] and the [edit class-of-service classifier] hierarchy levels.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Interfaces and Chassis
•
Configuration support to improve MC-LAG Layer 2 and Layer 3 convergence
(EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, you can configure multichassis
link aggregation (MC-LAG) interfaces on EX9200 switches to improve Layer 2 and
Layer 3 convergence times to subsecond values when an MC-AE link goes down or
comes up in a VLAN. To use this feature, ensure that the interchassis link (ICL) is
configured on an aggregated Ethernet interface.
For Layer 2 convergence, configure the enhanced-convergence statement on an
aggregated Ethernet interface at the [edit interfaces aex aggregated-ether-options
mc-ae] hierarchy level. For Layer 3 convergence, configure the enhanced-convergence
statement on an integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interface at the [edit interfaces
irb unit unit-number] hierarchy level.
Management
•
YANG module that defines the Junos OS configuration hierarchy (EX9200)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2, Juniper Networks provides a YANG module, which defines
the Junos OS configuration hierarchy. You can download the YANG module that defines
the complete Junos OS configuration hierarchy for all devices running a particular Junos
OS release from the Juniper Networks website at http://www.juniper.net/. You can also
generate a YANG module that defines the device-specific configuration hierarchy by
using the show system schema module configuration format yang operational mode
command on the local device. The Juniper Networks YANG module, configuration, is
bound to the namespace URI http://yang.juniper.net/yang/1.1/jc and uses the prefix jc.
[See Understanding YANG on Devices Running Junos OS.]
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Enhancements to SNMP statistics operational mode commands (EX9200)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can use the show snmp stats-response-statistics
command to view information about SNMP statistics responses sent from the Packet
Forwarding Engine during the MIB II process (mib2d). In addition, you can use the
subagents option in the show snmp statistics command to view the statistics of the
protocol data units (PDUs) and the number of SNMP requests and responses per
subagent. You can also use the subagents option to view the SNMP statistics received
from each subagent on each logical system.
[See show snmp stats-response-time and show snmp statistics.]

New and Changed Features
Open vSwitch Database Management Protocol (OVSDB)
•
OVSDB support (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the Junos OS
implementation of the Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) management protocol
provides a means by which VMware NSX controllers and EX9200 switches that support
OVSDB can communicate. In an NSX multi-hypervisor environment, NSX controllers
and EX9200 switches can exchange control and statistical information, thereby
enabling virtual machine (VM) traffic from entities in a virtual network to be forwarded
to entities in a physical network and the reverse.
[See Understanding the Open vSwitch Database Management Protocol Running on Juniper
Networks Devices and “Product Compatibility” on page 29.]
•
OVSDB schema update (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, the OVSDB
schema for physical devices version that is implemented on the EX9200 switch is
version 1.3.0. In addition, the schema now supports the multicast MACs local table.
[See Open vSwitch Database Schema For Physical Devices.]
OpenFlow
•
Support for OpenFlow v1.3.1 (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, EX9200
switches support OpenFlow v1.3.1 in addition to the OpenFlow v1.0 functionality that
is already supported on EX9200 switches. OpenFlow v1.3.1 enables the action specified
in one or more flow entries to direct packets to a base action called a group. The purpose
of the group action is to further process these packets and assign a more specific
forwarding action to them. You can use the show openflow groups command to view
groups that were added, modified, or deleted from the group table by the OpenFlow
controller. You can view group statistics using the show openflow statistics groups
command.
[See Understanding How the OpenFlow Group Action Works.]
Port Security
•
IPv6 access security (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, IPv6 access
security, with the following features, is supported on EX9200 switches: DHCPv6
snooping, IPv6 neighbor discovery inspection, IPv6 source guard, and RA guard. DHCPv6
snooping enables a switch to process DHCPv6 messages between a client and a server
and build a database of the IPv6 addresses assigned to the DHCPv6 clients. The switch
can use this database, also known as the binding table, to stop malicious traffic. The
EX9200 also supports DHCPv6 options to provide additional information in messages
sent by the client to the server. This information can be used by the server to assign
addresses and configuration parameters to the client. The following options are
supported:

11
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
•
Option 14, also known as Rapid Commit. When Rapid Commit is enabled, the DHCPv6
server and client use a two-message exchange (Solicit and Reply) to configure
clients, rather than the default four-message exchange (Solicit, Advertise, Request,
and Reply).
•
Option 16, also known as the Vendor-Class option, is used to transmit information
about the vendor of the hardware on which the client is hosted.
•
Option 18, also known as the Interface-ID option, is used to transmit information
about the port on which the DHCPv6 request was received from the client.
•
Option 37, also known as the Remote-ID option, is used to transmit information
about the remote host.
IPv6 neighbor discovery inspection analyzes neighbor discovery messages and Router
Advertisement (RA) messages sent from IPv6 nodes on the same link, and verifies
them against the DHCPv6 binding table. IPv6 source guard inspects all IPv6 traffic
from the client and verifies the source IPv6 address and source MAC address against
the entries in the DHCPv6 binding table. If no match is found, the traffic is dropped.
You configure DHCPv6 snooping, DHCPv6 options, IPv6 neighbor discovery Inspection,
and IPv6 source guard at the [edit vlans vlan-name forwarding-options dhcp-security]
hierarchy level.
[See Understanding Port Security.]
•
Unknown unicast forwarding (EX9200)—Unknown unicast traffic consists of unicast
packets with unknown destination MAC addresses. By default, the switch floods these
unicast packets that traverse a VLAN to all interfaces that are members of the VLAN.
This type of traffic forwarding can create unnecessary traffic that leads to poor network
performance or even a complete loss of network service. This is known as a traffic
storm.
To prevent a storm, you can disable the flooding of unknown unicast packets to all
VLAN interfaces by configuring one VLAN or all VLANs to forward all unknown unicast
traffic to a specific interface. This channels the unknown unicast traffic to a single
interface.
Configure unknown unicast forwarding at these hierarchy levels:
•
[edit vlans vlan-name forwarding-options flood input uuf-filter-name]
•
[edit forwarding-options next-hop-group next-hop-group-name group-type layer-2
interface interface-name]
•
[edit firewall family ethernet-switching filter uuf-filter-name term term-name from
traffic-type unknown-unicast]
•
[edit firewall family ethernet-switching filter uuf-filter-name term term-name then
next-hop-group next-hop-group-name]
[See Understanding Unknown Unicast Forwarding.]

New and Changed Features
Routing Policy and Firewall Filters
•
Firewall filter match condition support (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.2R1, EX9200 switches support the following match conditions in a
family-ethernet-switching filter for IPv6 traffic: destination-address,
destination-prefix-list, source-address, source-prefix-list, icmp-type, icmp-code,
next-header, source-port, destination-port, tcp-flags, tcp-initial, tcp-established, and
traffic-class. You can configure these match conditions at the [edit firewall family
ethernet-switching filter filter-name term term-name from] hierarchy level.
[See Firewall Filters for EX9200 Switches.]
•
Support for firewall filter flexible match conditions (EX9200)—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2R7, EX9200 switches support flexible match conditions under family
ethernet-switching for firewall filters. Standard firewall filter match conditions vary
based on the protocol family of the traffic being matched. The fields available for
matching within each protocol family are fixed or predefined. This means that filters
can match on patterns within those predefined fields only. Using flexible match
conditions, you can construct flexible match filter terms that start the match at Layer
2, Layer 3, Layer 4, or payload locations. You can enable further pattern matches at
user-defined custom locations within a packet by specifying additional offset criteria.
Flexible match filter terms are applied to interfaces as either input or output filters just
as any other firewall filter terms. Flexible match filter terms can also be created as
templates at the [edit firewall] hierarchy level. These templates can then be referenced
within a flexible match term.
[See Firewall Filters Match Conditions.]

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Software Installation and Upgrade
•
Support for unified-in-service software upgrade on 10-Gigabit Ethernet, 40-Gigabit
Ethernet, and 100-Gigabit Ethernet line cards (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2, unified-in-service software upgrade (unified ISSU) is supported on EX9200
switches on 10-Gigabit Ethernet, 40-Gigabit Ethernet, and 100-Gigabit Ethernet line
cards. Unified ISSU is a process to upgrade Junos OS with minimal disruption of transit
traffic and no disruption of the control plane. This process is for upgrading Junos OS
from an earlier release to a later one. After the unified ISSU completes, the new upgrade
works identically to one performed through a cold boot.
Configure unified ISSU with the request system software in-service-upgrade command.
[See Unified ISSU System Requirements.]
User Interface and Configuration
•
Enhancement to reduce the time taken for performing system commit
(EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure the delta-export
statement at the [edit system commit] hierarchy level to reduce the time taken to
commit configuration changes.
[See commit (system) and delta-export.]
VPNs
•
EVPN (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, an Ethernet virtual private
network (EVPN) is made up of a set of CE devices that are connected to PE devices
or MPLS edge switches (MES) that make up the edge of the MPLS network. The CE
devices can be routers or switches. The MESs provide Layer 2 virtual bridge connectivity
between the CE devices. You can deploy multiple EVPNs in the provider's network. In
an EVPN, learning between MESs takes place in the control plane by using BGP rather
than in the data plane (as is the case with traditional bridging). EVPNs can be used to
provide connectivity between data centers spanning metro area networks (MANs) and
wide area networks (WANs).

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Option 255 (end-of-options). The default behavior in Junos OS is to drop packets that
do not include Option 255. To override that default behavior, configure the
allow-no-end-options CLI statement under the [system services dhcp-local-server
overrides] hierarchy level.
•
Format change for DHCP Option 18—On EX9200 switches with DHCP snooping
configured, when the VLAN ID is appended to the prefix of DHCP option 18, it appears
in decimal format instead of hexadecimal format.
Interfaces and Chassis
•
Configuration statement to correct mismatches between MAC and ARP entries in
MC-LAGs (EX9200)—Starting with Junos OS Release 13.2R4 but first documented in
Release 14.2R6, the arp-l2-validate configuration statement is available as a workaround
when network issues or conditions result in MAC and ARP entries going out of sync in
an MC-LAG scenario. Configure the arp-l2-validate statement at the [edit interfaces
irb] hierarchy level to recognize and correct mismatches between MAC and ARP entries
related to the next-hop interface. You can remove the arp-l2-validate configuration
when the network issues or conditions are resolved.
Network Management and Monitoring
•
New system log message indicating the difference in the Packet Forwarding Engine
counter value (EX9200)—Effective in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, if the counter value
of a Packet Forwarding Engine is reported to be less than its previous value, then the
residual counter value is added to the newly reported value only for that specific counter.
In that case, the CLI shows the MIB2D_COUNTER_DECREASING system log message
for that specific counter.
Port Security
•
Enhanced output for show ethernet-switching interface extensive CLI
command—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the output of the show
ethernet-switching interface extensive CLI command includes the fields VLAN members,
TAG, and STP state. The Logical interface flags field now includes STCL, which indicates
that the port is disabled because storm control is in effect, and MMAS, which indicates
that the port is disabled because the MAC address move limit has been exceeded.

On EX9200 switches with 802.1X authentication enabled, if you associate an
802.1X-enabled interface in single-secure mode with a VLAN, when a client is
authenticated on that VLAN and then is later authenticated on a dynamic VLAN (a
guest VLAN or a VLAN assigned by a RADIUS server), the client might still be associated
with the interface-associated VLAN and receive the broadcast and multicast traffic
of that VLAN. PR955141
•
On EX9200 switches, if you configure a firewall filter name (filter name plus term name
plus counter name) that has more than 128 characters, 802.1X (dot1x) authentication
might fail and cause the Network Processing Card (NPC) to crash. As a workaround,
configure the filter name, term name, and counter name such that when the total
length of those three names is added to the length of the interface name and the MAC
address, the total length does not exceed 128 characters. PR1083132

Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) Management Protocol
•
The amount of time that it takes for Juniper Networks devices that function as hardware
virtual tunnel endpoints (VTEPs) to learn a new MAC address after the first packet is
sent from this MAC address is a maximum of 4.5 seconds. (The amount of time depends
upon the server configuration that VMware NSX is running.) During this time, traffic
destined for this MAC address floods the VXLAN. PR962945

After the connections with NSX controllers are disabled on a Juniper Networks device,
interfaces that were configured to be managed by OVSDB continue to transmit traffic.

OpenFlow
•
On EX9200 switches running OpenFlow v1.3.1, the output for the show openflow flows
command displays IPv6-related fields. However, the Junos OS implementation of
OpenFlow v1.3.1 for EX9200 switches does not support IPv6 specifications. Therefore,
the output for these fields typically displays None.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Software Installation and Upgrade
•
On EX9200 switches, if you issue a unified ISSU from Junos OS Release 13.2 or earlier
to Junos OS Release 14.1 or later, approximately 20 seconds of traffic drop occurs for
IPv6 protocols (for example, OSPFv6, BGPv6, or RIPv6) that are enabled on integrated
routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces. The problem occurs because different link local
addresses have been generated in the two releases for the same IRB logical units. As
a workaround, configure different local IPv6 interfaces for different IRB logical units.

On EX9200 switches, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) relay feature,
which allows the client interface and the server interface to be in separate virtual
routing and forwarding (VRF) instances, does not work if the client interface is
configured as an integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interface. PR1064889
•
On EX9200 switches, if DHCP relay is configured using the forward-only and
forward-only-replies statements at the [edit forwarding-options dhcp-relay] hierarchy
level, and the DHCP local server is configured with the forward-snooped-clients
statement at the [edit system services dhcp-local-server] hierarchy level, then the
configuration for forward-snooped-clients takes precedence over the configuration for
forward-only and forward-only-replies. As a result, DHCP message exchange between
VRF instances might not work as expected. As a workaround, do not configure
forward-only and forward-only-replies together with forward-snooped-clients. PR1077016
•
On EX9200 switches, the unsupported auto-10m-100m option no longer appears in
the CLI. PR1077020
•
On EX9200 switches, if you configure an MC-LAG with two devices, and then delete
and re-create an MC-AE interface, broadcast and multicast traffic that is flooded might
loop for several milliseconds. PR1082775
•
On EX9200 switches, if you configure a virtual private LAN service (VPLS), no
label-switched interface (LSI) belongs to a VLAN even though the VPLS connection
is in the UP state, and traffic does not flood to an LSI. As a workaround, configure VPLS
on the routing instance instead of on the virtual-switch instance. PR1083561
•
An EX9200-40F-M line card drops all traffic on an IRB logical interface, including both
data plane and control plane traffic. If an IRB logical interface is configured on an
EX9200-40F-M line card as part of a VLAN, any device connected through that interface
cannot use Layer 3 forwarding outside the subnet, because EX9200-40F-M does not
handle the ARP function correctly. Configuring static ARP on devices using the EX9200
as a gateway is not a workaround, because packets are still dropped if the Routing
Engine of the EX9200 has the routes and the ARP entry for the destination IP.
PR1086790

On EX9200 switches, if you add a VLAN on an existing virtual-switch instance for virtual
private LAN service (VPLS), the label-switched interface (LSI) might not be associated

Layer 2 Features
•
On EX9200 switches, if you configure a virtual private LAN service (VPLS) routing
instance and then add interfaces to that VPLS routing instance, the system might
create a core file and go into db (debug) mode, because the addition of the interfaces
to the routing instance caused a buffer overflow. PR1068898

Firewall Filters
•

•
On EX9200 switches, when the switch receives LACP control packets from an interface
other than an aggregated Ethernet (AE) interface, it forwards the packets, causing
LACP peer devices that receive the packets to reset the LACP connections. This might
cause continuous flaps for all AE or multichassis aggregated Ethernet (MC-AE)
interfaces. PR1034917
•
On EX9200 switches, although the minimum Junos OS release that supports the
EX9200-6QS line card is Release 14.2R1, if an IRB logical interface is configured on an
EX9200-6QS line card as part of a VLAN, any device connected through that interface
is unable to route outside of the subnet because EX9200-6QS drops all ARP requests.
As a result, the EX9200-6QS line card drops all routed traffic, including both data
plane and control plane traffic. Configuring static ARP on devices that use an EX9200
switch as gateway is not a workaround because the packets are still dropped if the
Routing Engine of the EX9200 has the routes and ARP entry for the destination IP. As
a workaround, upgrade your software to the release specified in TSB16659 if your switch
configuration includes an IRB logical interface configured on an EX9200-6QS line card
as part of a VLAN. PR1055566

entry is received, causing the state of the IPv6 address to transition from BOUND
to WAITING. This resets the lease timer and creates a stale entry.
The presence of stale entries in the DHCPv6 binding table might cause the jdhcpd
process to create a core file. PR1012556
•
On EX9200 switches, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) relay functionality
might stop working and DHCP does not form new bindings if the number of subscribers
exceeds 1000. PR1033921
Infrastructure
•
On EX9200 switches, if the switch receives an ARP packet while the forwarding
information base (FIB) has exceeded the limit of 262144 routes, the kernel might
generate a core file. PR1028714
Interfaces and Chassis
•
On EX9200 switches, in an MC-LAG scenario, a MAC address might incorrectly point
to an inter-chassis control link (ICL) after a MAC move from a single-home LAG to the
MC-LAG. PR1034347

Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases on page 28
Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases
Support for upgrades and downgrades that span more than three Junos OS releases at
a time is not provided, except for releases that are designated as Extended End-of-Life
(EEOL) releases. EEOL releases provide direct upgrade and downgrade paths—you can
upgrade directly from one EEOL release to the next EEOL release, even though EEOL
releases generally occur in increments beyond three releases.
You can upgrade or downgrade to the EEOL release that occurs directly before or after
the currently installed EEOL release, or to two EEOL releases earlier or later. For example,
Junos OS Releases 10.0, 10.4, and 11.4 are EEOL releases. You can upgrade from Junos OS
Release 10.0 to Release 10.4 or even from Junos OS Release 10.0 to Release 11.4. However,
you cannot upgrade directly from a non-EEOL release that is more than three releases
ahead or behind. For example, you cannot directly upgrade from Junos OS Release 10.3
(a non-EEOL release) to Junos OS Release 11.4 or directly downgrade from Junos OS
Release 11.4 to Junos OS Release 10.3.
To upgrade or downgrade from a non-EEOL release to a release more than three releases
earlier or later, first upgrade to the next EEOL release and then upgrade or downgrade
from that EEOL release to your target release.
For more information about EEOL releases and to review a list of EEOL releases, see

Junos Fusion support (MX Series routers, QFX5100 switches, and EX4300
switches)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, Junos OS supports a network
system named Junos Fusion. Based on the 802.1BR standard, Junos Fusion is a
combination of aggregation devices and satellite devices that appear to the rest of the
network as a single device. Junos Fusion expands the port density of the aggregation
device and allows it to send and receive traffic using the customer-facing ports of the
directly connected satellite devices. The composite of the aggregation device and
satellite devices–Junos Fusion–is configured and managed through the aggregation
device.
You can configure the following MX Series routers as an aggregation device:

Class of Service (CoS)
•
CoS support (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, Junos Fusion
supports the standard Junos OS CoS features and operational commands. Each
extended port on a satellite device is a logical extension to the aggregation device.
Therefore, the default CoS policy on the aggregation device applies to each extended
port. You can also create standard CoS policies for extended ports.
A cascade port is a physical port or interface on an aggregation device that provides
a connection to a satellite device. Port scheduling is supported on cascade ports. Junos
Fusion technology reserves a separate set of queues with minimum bandwidth
guarantees for in-band management traffic to protect against congestion caused by
data traffic.
Support for configuring enhanced transmission selection (ETS) is also extended to
MX Series routers for satellite device ports that support ETS. If ETS is configured on
the MX Series aggregation device for a satellite device port that does not support ETS,
the satellite device converts the ETS configuration to a port scheduler.
[See Understanding CoS on an MX Series Aggregation Device in Junos Fusion.]
Interfaces
•
Supported port types (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, Junos
Fusion supports the following port types:
•
Cascade port—Provides a connection to a satellite device. Cascade ports on an
aggregation device connect to uplink ports on the satellite device.
•
Uplink port—Provides a connection to an aggregation device. Uplink ports on a
satellite device connect to cascade ports on the aggregation device.
•
Extended port—Provides a connection to servers or endpoints. Extended ports are
the physical interfaces of the satellite devices. The satellite devices appear as
additional FPCs on the aggregation device in a Junos Fusion topology, and extended
ports appear as additional interfaces to be managed by the aggregation device.
[See Understanding Junos Fusion Ports.]
•
Uplink failure detection (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, Junos
Fusion enables satellite devices to detect link failures on the uplink interfaces used to
connect to aggregation devices. When a host device is multihomed to two satellite
devices, and one of the uplink interfaces goes down, the host device can redirect traffic
through the other active satellite device. All of the extended ports configured on the
satellite device with the uplink interface failure are shut down.
By default, UFD is disabled. To enable UFD for all satellite devices, include the
uplink-failure-detection statement at the [edit chassis satellite-management] hierarchy
level. To enable UFD for specific satellite devices, include the uplink-failure-detection
statement at the [edit chassis satellite-management fpc] hierarchy level.

Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
EX4300 and QFX5100 switches configured as satellite devices have a default set of
uplink interfaces.Table 1 on page 35 shows the default set of uplink interfaces that
UFD selects for failure detection.

0/48 through 0/53
QFX5100-96S (8 QSFP+ ports)
0/96 through 0/103
If you choose not to use the default set of uplinks for your satellite devices, you need
to specify which uplink interfaces you want to use for UFD. To apply UFD to an uplink
interface, include the ufd-default-policy statement at the [edit chassis
satellite-management uplink-failure-detection] hierarchy level. You also need to
configure the UFD policy. For example:
[edit policy-options]
satellite-policy {
candidate-uplink-port-profile {
ufd-default-policy {
term qfx5100 {
product-model QFX5100*;
uplink-port-group uplink-ports;
}
}
}
port-group-alias {
uplink-ports {
pic 0 {
port [1, 2];
}
pic 1 {
port [3,4];
}

•
Increasing number of aggregated Ethernet interfaces to approximately 1000 (Junos
Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, aggregation devices support up to
1000 aggregated Ethernet interfaces, depending on the number satellite devices
included in a Junos Fusion topology.
•
LACP support (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, LACP is
supported on Junos Fusion. It provides the ability to bundle several physical interfaces
to form one logical aggregated Ethernet interface. The LACP mode can be active or
passive. The transmitting link is known as the actor, and the receiving link is known as
the partner. If the actor and partner are both in passive mode, they do not exchange
LACP packets, and the aggregated Ethernet links do not come up. If either the actor
or partner is active, they do exchange LACP packets. By default, LACP is in passive
mode on aggregated Ethernet interfaces. To initiate transmission of LACP packets and
response to LACP packets, you must enable LACP active mode.
You can configure Ethernet links to actively transmit PDUs, or you can configure the
links to passively transmit them, sending out LACP PDUs only when they receive them
from another link.
[See Understanding Link Aggregation and Link Aggregation Control Protocol in a Junos
Fusion.]
•
MC-LAG support (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, you can
configure MC-LAG between two aggregation devices in a Junos Fusion topology.
You can also configure MC-LAG interfaces to improve the Layer 2 and Layer 3
convergence time when a MC-LAG Ethernet link goes down or comes up. To configure
enhanced convergence, issue the enhanced-convergence statement at the [edit
interfaces ae aggregated-ether-options mc-ae] hierarchy level for an aggregated Ethernet
interface and at the [edit interfaces irb unit unit-number] hierarchy level for an IRB
interface.
[See Understanding Multichassis Link Aggregation in a Junos Fusion.]
NOTE: EVPN cannot be configured simultaneously with MC-LAG.
•
36
Configuration synchronization for MC-LAG (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2R6, Junos Fusion supports the ability to easily propagate, synchronize, and
commit configurations from one MC-LAG peer to another MC-LAG peer. MC-LAG
configuration synchronization enables you log into any one of the MC-LAG peers to
manage both MC-LAG peers, thus having a single point of management. With MC-LAG
configuration synchronization, you can use configuration groups to simplify the
configuration process. For example, you can create configuration groups for the local
MC-LAG peers, one for the remote MC-LAG peer, and one for the global configuration,
which is essentially a configuration that is common to both MC-LAG peers. You can
create conditional groups to specify when a configuration is synchronized with another
MC-LAG peer. Additionally, you can enable the peers-synchronize command at the
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
[edit system commit] hierarchy level to synchronize the configurations and commits
across the MC-LAG peers by default. NETCONF over SSH provides a secure connection
between the MC-LAG peers, and Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) copies the configurations
securely between the MC-LAG peers.
•
Enhanced interface commands (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.2R3, Junos Fusion provides information for extended ports and uplink ports on
satellite devices through operational mode commands and output. Extended port
names include the extended FPC slot number, PIC slot, and port number. For example,
a 10-Gigabit Ethernet extended port number might be xe-125/1/8, where 125 is the FPC
slot number, 1 is the physical interface card (PIC) slot, and 8 is the extended port
number.
The following commands have been enhanced to display the extended ports and
uplink ports by using either the slot or the alias. Additionally, you can now use the
keyword satellite to view information about the satellite device ports:
•
show interfaces satellite-device (all | alias)
•
show interfaces extensive satellite-device (all | alias)
•
show interfaces terse satellite-device (all | alias)
Layer 2 Protocols
•
RSTP configuration supports 1024 VLAN instances on extended ports for MX Series
platforms (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, Junos Fusion
supports up to 1024 VLAN instances for the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) on
MX Series platforms for improved scalability. Typically each VLAN corresponds with
an associated spanning tree, which affects processing resources due to the number
of VLANs. Increasing the number VLAN instances helps increase scalability across the
MX Series platform.
Layer 3 Protocols
•
Support for Layer 3 protocols (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4,
many of the routing protocols supported on MX Series routers have been extended to
the satellite devices in a Junos Fusion topology. You can configure the following Layer
3 routing protocols on satellite device extended ports:
•
BGP
•
BGP for IPv6
•
IS-IS
•
IS-IS for IPv6
•
OSPF
•
OSPF version 3
You can configure the following Layer 3 routing protocols on satellite device extended
ports that are included in LAGs and MC-LAGs:

Multicast Protocols
•
Support for multicast protocols (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.2R4, many of the multicast protocols supported on MX Series routers have been
extended to the satellite devices in a Junos Fusion topology. You can configure the
following multicast protocols on satellite device extended ports:
•
IGMP
•
MLD
•
PIM source-specific multicast (SSM)
•
PIM sparse mode
[See Junos Fusion Protocol Support.]
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Chassis MIB support (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, satellite
devices in a Junos Fusion topology are represented in the chassis MIB. Satellite devices
are represented as FPC slots (100, 101, 102, ...) in the aggregation device. The support
is enabled using a range of container indexes, which enable the SNMP process to
redirect SNMP requests to the chassis process or SPMD based on the first index entry.
The following tables have been implemented for satellite devices:
•
jnxContainersTable
•
jnxContentsTable
•
jnxFilledTable
•
jnxOperatingTable
•
jnxFRUTable
These tables have an index consisting of four entries–CIDX, L1, L2, and L3–where CIDX
is the container index, L1 is the level-1 index (slot), L2 is the level-2 index (component
within the L1 slot), and L3 is the level-3 index (subcomponent of the L2 slot). For
example, an entry of 104.101.2.0 would indicate CIDX 104 is the index for fans and refers
to the second fan of satellite device 100 (all indexes are 1-based). The CIDX indexes
for Junos Fusion are offset by 100 from regular indexes; for example, a regular CIDX 2
(power supply) is 102 for the power supply of the satellite device. Using these indexes,
you can distinguish the satellite device hardware from the aggregation device hardware.
[See Chassis MIB Support (Junos Fusion).]

Software Installation and Upgrade
•
Upgrading and managing the satellite software on satellite devices (Junos
Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, Junos Fusion provides the ability to
manage satellite software. To convert a standalone switch to a satellite device, you
can use one of the following methods:
•
Autoconversion—Automatically converts a standalone device into a satellite device
when it is cabled to a cascade port on the aggregation device.
•
Manual conversion—Installs satellite software manually from the aggregation device
using the request chassis satellite interface interface-name device-mode satellite
command.
•
Preconversion—Installs satellite software onto a device before connecting it to a
Junos Fusion topology.
After you convert the switch to a satellite device, you can install satellite software
upgrades onto a satellite device through the aggregation device.
Satellite software upgrade groups are often needed to install satellite software. A
satellite software upgrade group is a group of satellite devices that are designated to
upgrade to the same satellite software version using the same satellite software
package. When you add a satellite to an upgrade group that is not running the same
satellite software, the satellite device is automatically updated to the version of satellite
software associated with the upgrade group.
You can use the following commands to add and associate a satellite software version
with an upgrade group:
•
request system software add upgrade-group upgrade-group-name—Add the satellite
software and associate it with the specified upgrade group.
•
request system software delete upgrade-group upgrade-group-name—Remove the
satellite software association from the specified upgrade group.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
•
request system software rollback upgrade-group upgrade-group-name—Associate an
upgrade group with a previous version of satellite software.
You can issue the show chassis satellite software command to see which software
images are stored on the aggregation device and which upgrade groups are associated
with the software images.
[See Understanding Junos Fusion Components, Understanding Software in a Junos Fusion,
and Configuring Junos Fusion.]
System Logging
•
System log messages to indicate checksum errors on the DDR3 interface—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2R7, two new system log messages,
XMCHIP_CMERROR_DDRIF_INT_REG_CHKSUM_ERR_MINOR and
XMCHIP_CMERROR_DDRIF_INT_REG_CHKSUM_ERR_MAJOR, are added to indicate
memory-related problems on the interfaces to the double data rate type 3 (DDR3)
memory. These error messages indicate that an FPC has detected a checksum error,
which is causing packet drops.
The following error threshold values classify the error as a major error or a minor error:
•
Minor error— 6 to 254 errors per second
•
Major error—255 or more errors per second
VPNs
•
Support for VPNs (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, many of
the VPN protocols supported on MX Series routers have been extended to the satellite
devices in a Junos Fusion topology. You can configure satellite device extended ports
as CE router interfaces for the following VPNs:
•
Layer 2 circuits
•
Layer 2 VPNs
•
Layer 3 VPNs
•
Logical routers
•
Virtual private LAN service (VPLS)

EVPN and VXLAN support (Junos Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6,
Junos Fusion extends the use of EVPN with VXLAN encapsulation to satellite devices
managed by MX Series routers. This feature provides Layer 2 connectivity for end
stations within a virtualized network. The end stations consist of virtual hosts connected
to the virtualized server, and nonvirtualized bare-metal servers connected to top-of-rack
switches. The MX Series routers also function as default gateways for the internetwork
traffic among end stations that belong to different virtual networks.
NOTE: MC-LAG cannot be configured simultaneously with EVPN.

Changes in Behavior and Syntax
This section lists the changes in behavior of Junos OS features and changes in the syntax
of Junos OS statements and commands in Junos OS Release 14.2R7 or later for Junos
Fusion Provider Edge.
Junos Fusion
•
Default configuration statement now implicit (Junos Fusion)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2R5, the single-home statement at the [edit chassis satellite-management]
hierarchy level is now both the default value and implicit. The statement becomes
automatically configured when you include any portion of the [edit chassis
satellite-management] hierarchy level in your Junos Fusion configuration. As a result,
all satellite devices are single-homed by default and the single-home statement does
not need to be configured explicitly. However, for backward compatibility reasons, the
single-home configuration statement is still supported for legacy configurations.
•
Support for the satellite all option across multiple user classes (Junos
Fusion)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R6, you can now include the satellite all
statement at the [edit system login class class-name] hierarchy level for multiple classes.
When you assign a class containing the satellite all privilege to a user, the user can
access a satellite device from an aggregation device without re-entering user
credentials, such as username and password.
•
Evolution of satellite device user privileges (Junos Fusion)—When you assign the
following privileges to a user, the user can log in to a satellite device from an aggregation
device per software release, as follows:
•
•
Junos OS Release 14.2R3: The root user can log in without a password, and users
with class satellite all can log in with a password.
•
Junos OS Release 14.2R5: The root user, superuser, and users with class satellite all
can log in without a password.
•
Junos OS Release 14.2R6: The root user, superuser, and users with class satellite all,
permissions all, and permissions maintenance can log in without a password.
Automatic channelized interface support on QFX5100-96S satellite devices (Junos
Fusion)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R7 and satellite software release 1.0R4,
port 96 and port 100 on QFX5100-96S satellite devices can be automatically
channelized as follows:
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
41
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
If the satellite device has not established a connection with the aggregation device:
•
The satellite device tries to channelize port 96 if no transceivers are inserted in ports
97 to 99.
•
The satellite device also tries to channelize port 100 if no transceivers are inserted
in ports 101 to 103.
Until the satellite device establishes a connection with the aggregation device, the
channelization mode will toggle. When this happens, the SPFE process on the
QFX5100-96S satellite device restarts and changes the channelization mode. The
autodiscovery process stops when the satellite device establishes a connection with
the aggregation device and does not restart until the satellite device reboots.

Junos Fusion
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you attempt to implement MAC filtering
or MAC accounting on extended ports, the features do not work. PR1023578
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology running 32-bit Junos OS, if you configure an
aggregation device with nonstop active routing, and the aggregation device processes
more than 150,000 routes, the standby Routing Engine might lose its connection to
the master Routing Engine. As a workaround, verify that the aggregation device Routing
Engine is compatible with the 64-bit Junos OS, and then upgrade it to the 64-bit version.

Junos Fusion
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you configure 3000 VLANs and 3000 IRB
interfaces in your topology, commit the configuration, and immediately issue show
and clear operational mode commands, the system might be slow to respond (more
than 10 seconds) but does recover eventually. PR1076345
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you enable MC-LAG over an IRB interface
and perform a graceful Routing Engine switchover, the system might experience traffic
loss of up to 60 percent of the traffic for 90 seconds and a drop in the Address
Resolution Protocol (ARP) count. PR1080192
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology running multicast, if you disable and reenable
a satellite device, the PIM upstream interface state might not be updated correctly.
PR1091449
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology running multicast, if you delete multicast
routes from native aggregation device ports and extended ports, the PIM join (s,g)
states might still appear in the output of the show pim join summary command.
PR1092192
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, when unicast next hops for the satellite
device extended ports are deleted and added, if the routing chip memory is not freed,
a small memory leak occurs during the next-hop deletion. If the churn happens for an
extended period, the Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC) might run out of memory and
stop operating. PR1114369
Satellite Software
•
On a Junos Fusion topology where the QFX5100-96S is deployed as a satellite device,
you cannot channelize the 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports. PR1052225
•
On a Junos Fusion topology, if you configure an outgoing firewall or policer to drop
packets prior to transmission, the logical interfaces of satellite device extended ports
that appear in the output of the show interfaces extensive command might include
packets in the statistics counter that have been dropped but not forwarded. PR1078304
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, you might not be able to disable
auto-negotiation on fiber-based, Gigabit Ethernet ports in a QFX5100 switch acting
as a satellite device. PR1183112

•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you configure CoS classifiers on an
aggregated Ethernet bundle comprised of satellite device extended ports, the
configuration commits and the classifiers are applied correctly. However, the output
of the show class-of-service interface ae-interface-name command does not display
the configured classifiers. As a workaround, apply the classifier on unit 0 of the LAG
and the show command output will display the correct information. PR1062500
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, broadcast Ethernet traffic with an unknown
Ethertype might generate the following log entries: fpc0 XL[0:0]_PPE 1.xss[0] ADDR

On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you configure Junos Fusion on an MX
Series aggregation device, corresponding system log messages might not be received
by a remote syslog server. PR1134269
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, when you insert a field-replaceable unit
(FRU) into a satellite device, the aggregation device might not generate the expected
SNMP traps for this event (such as jnxFruOnline and jnxFruInsertion). PR1136566
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology configured with LACP, if a Routing Engine
switchover causes the Periodic Packet Manager (ppman) to lose connectivity with the
Periodic Packet Management Process (ppmd), and the reconnection results in new
interface entries that do not have a valid interface name, the reconnection attempt
might exceed 120 seconds and cause the LACP adjacencies to remain in the detached
state as seen in the output of the show lacp interfaces command. PR1147546
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, if you configure the aggregation device for
the first time, the satellite device to standalone device conversion might fail if the
satellite discovery and provisioning process (sdpd) has not restarted. This happens
because you perform the initial satellite management configuration on the aggregation
device. As a workaround, restart the process by issuing the restart
satellite-discovery-provisioning-process command before performing the satellite
device conversion. PR1148786
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, when you configure an integrated routing
and bridging (IRB) interface that includes both regular and extended ports, multicast
traffic might not flow to the satellite device extended ports. PR1156750
•
On a Junos Fusion Provider Edge topology, you could only assign satellite all privileges
to a single user class. In Junos OS Release 14.2R6, you can now include the satellite all
statement at the [edit system login class class-name] hierarchy level for multiple classes.

Basic Procedure for Upgrading an Aggregation Device
When upgrading or downgrading Junos OS, always use the jinstall package. Use other
packages (such as the jbundle package) only when so instructed by a Juniper Networks
support representative. For information about the contents of the jinstall package and
details of the installation process, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
NOTE: Before upgrading, back up the file system and the currently active
Junos OS configuration so that you can recover to a known, stable
environment in case the upgrade is unsuccessful. Issue the following
command:
user@host> request system snapshot
The installation process rebuilds the file system and completely reinstalls
Junos OS. Configuration information from the previous software installation
is retained, but the contents of log files might be erased. Stored files on the
routing platform, such as configuration templates and shell scripts (the only
exceptions are the juniper.conf and ssh files), might be removed. To preserve
the stored files, copy them to another system before upgrading or
downgrading the routing platform. See the Junos OS Administration Library for
Routing Devices.

Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
The download and installation process for Junos OS Release 14.2R7 is different from
previous Junos OS releases.
1.
Using a Web browser, navigate to the Download Software URL on the Juniper Networks
webpage:
http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/
2. Log in to the Juniper Networks authentication system using the username (generally
your e-mail address) and password supplied by Juniper Networks representatives.
3. Select By Technology > Junos Platform > Junos Fusion to find the software that you
want to download.
4. Select the release number (the number of the software version that you want to
download) from the Version drop-down list to the right of the page.
5. Select the Software tab.
6. Select the software package for the release.
7. Review and accept the End User License Agreement.
8. Download the software to a local host.
9. Copy the software to the routing platform or to your internal software distribution
site.
10. Install the new jinstall package on the aggregation device.
NOTE: We recommend that you upgrade all software packages out of
band using the console because in-band connections are lost during the
upgrade process.
Customers in the United States and Canada, use the following commands.
•
For 64-bit software:
NOTE: We highly recommend using 64-bit Junos OS software when
implementing Junos Fusion.

•
For 32-bit software:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-14.2R7.5-export-signed.tgz
Replace source with one of the following values:
•
/pathname—For a software package that is installed from a local directory on the
router.
•
For software packages that are downloaded and installed from a remote location:
•
ftp://hostname/pathname
•
http://hostname/pathname
•
scp://hostname/pathname (available only for Canada and U.S. version)
The validate option validates the software package against the current configuration
as a prerequisite to adding the software package to ensure that the router reboots
successfully. This is the default behavior when the software package being added is
a different release.
Adding the reboot command reboots the router after the upgrade is validated and
installed. When the reboot is complete, the router displays the login prompt. The
loading process can take 5 to 10 minutes.
Rebooting occurs only if the upgrade is successful.
NOTE: After you install a Junos OS Release 14.2R7 jinstall package, you cannot
issue the request system software rollback command to return to the previously
installed software. Instead you must issue the request system software add
validate command and specify the jinstall package that corresponds to the
previously installed software.
Upgrading an Aggregation Device with Redundant Routing Engines
If the aggregation device has two Routing Engines, perform a Junos OS installation on
each Routing Engine separately to minimize disrupting network operations as follows:
1.
Disable graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) on the master Routing Engine
and save the configuration change to both Routing Engines.
2. Install the new Junos OS release on the backup Routing Engine while keeping the
currently running software version on the master Routing Engine.
3. After making sure that the new software version is running correctly on the backup

Preparing the Switch for Satellite Device Conversion
Satellite devices in a Junos Fusion topology use a satellite software package that is
different from the standard Junos OS software package. Before you can install the satellite
software package on a satellite device, you first need to upgrade the target satellite
device to an interim Junos OS software version that can be converted to satellite software.
Table 2 on page 53 shows a support matrix that maps Junos OS software used in
aggregation devices to the compatible preconverted switch software and satellite device
software.

Customers with EX4300 switches, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-ex-4300-14.1X53-D30.3-domestic-signed.tgz
Customers with QFX5100 switches, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-qfx-5-14.1X53-D30.3-domestic-signed.tgz
When the interim installation has completed and the switch is running a version of Junos
OS that is compatible with satellite device conversion, perform the following steps:
1.
Log in to the device using the console port.
2. Clear the device:
[edit]
user@satellite-device# request system zeroize
NOTE: The device reboots to complete the procedure for resetting the
device.
If you are not logged in to the device using the console port connection, your connection
to the device is lost after entering the request system zeroize command.
If you lose your connection to the device, log in using the console port.

3. (EX4300 switches only) After the reboot is complete, convert the built-in 40-Gbps
QSFP+ interfaces from Virtual Chassis ports (VCPs) into network ports:
user@satellite-device> request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port port-number
For example, to convert all four built-in 40-Gbps QSFP+ interfaces on an EX4300-24P
switch into network ports:
user@satellite-device>request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 0
user@satellite-device> request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 1
user@satellite-device> request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 2
user@satellite-device> request virtual-chassis vc-port delete pic-slot 1 port 3
This step is required for the 40-Gbps QSFP+ interfaces that will be used as uplink
interfaces in a Junos Fusion topology. Built-in 40-Gbps QSFP+ interfaces on EX4300
switches are configured into VCPs by default, and the default settings are restored
after the device is reset.
After this initial preparation, you can use one of three methods to convert your switches
into satellite devices—autoconversion, manual conversion, and preconfiguration.
Autoconverting a Switch into a Satellite Device
Use this procedure to automatically configure a switch into a satellite device when it is
cabled into the aggregation device.
You can use the autoconversion procedure to add one or more satellite devices to your
Junos Fusion topology. The autoconversion procedure is especially useful when you are
adding multiple satellite devices to Junos Fusion, because it allows you to easily configure
the entire topology before or after cabling the satellite devices to the aggregation devices.
Before you begin:
•
Ensure that your aggregation device is running Junos OS Release 14.2R5 or later, and
that the satellite devices are running Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D30 or later.
To autoconvert a switch into a satellite device:
1.
Cable a link between the aggregation device and the satellite device, if desired.
NOTE: You can cable the aggregation device to the satellite device at any
point in this procedure.
When the aggregation device is cabled to the satellite device during this
procedure, the process for converting a switch into a satellite device to
finalize this process occurs immediately.
If the aggregation device is not cabled to the satellite device, the process
for converting a switch into a satellite device to finalize this process starts
when the satellite device is cabled to the aggregation device.
2. Log in to the aggregation device.
3. Configure the cascade ports.
54
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
For example, to configure interface xe-0/0/1 on the aggregation device into a cascade
port:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set interfaces xe-0/0/1 cascade-port
4. Associate an FPC slot ID with each satellite device.
Examples:
•
To configure the FPC slot ID of the satellite device that is connected to xe-0/0/1 to
101:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 101 cascade-ports
xe-0/0/1
•
To map FPC slot ID 101 to the satellite device using the serial number ABCDEFGHIJKL:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 101 serial-number
ABCDEFGHIJKL
•
To map FPC slot ID to the satellite device using MAC address 12:34:56:AB:CD:EF:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 110 system-id
12:34:56:AB:CD:EF
5. (Recommended) Configure an alias name for the satellite device:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc slot-id alias alias-name
where slot-id is the FPC slot ID of the satellite device defined in the previous step, and
alias-name is the alias.
For example, to configure the satellite device numbered 101 as qfx5100-48s-1:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 101 alias qfx5100-48s-1
6. Configure an FPC slot ID into a software upgrade group.
For example, to add a satellite device with FPC number 101 to an existing software
group named group1, or create a software upgrade group named group1 and add a
satellite device with FPC slot 101 to the group:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management upgrade-group group1 satellite
101
If you are creating a new software upgrade group in this step, you also need to associate
the group with a satellite software image. You can skip this final step if the software
upgrade group has been created and an association already exists.
Before associating a satellite software image with a satellite software group, the
configuration with the satellite software upgrade group must be committed:
[edit]
user@satellite-device# commit synchronize
After committing the configuration, associate a satellite software image named
satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz to the upgrade group named group1:
user@aggregation-device> request system software add
/var/tmp/satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz upgrade-group group1
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
55
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
7. Enable automatic satellite conversion:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management auto-satellite-conversion
satellite slot-id
For example, to automatically convert FPC 101 into a satellite device:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management auto-satellite-conversion
satellite 101
8. Commit the configuration:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit
If you want to commit the configuration to both Routing Engines:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit synchronize
The satellite software upgrade on the satellite device begins after this final step is
completed, or after you cable the satellite device to a cascade port using automatic
satellite conversion if you have not already cabled the satellite device to the
aggregation device.
After the satellite software update, the switch operates as a satellite device in the
Junos Fusion topology
Manually Converting a Switch into a Satellite Device
Use this procedure to manually convert a switch into a satellite device after cabling it
into the Junos Fusion topology.
This procedure should be used to convert a switch that is not currently acting as a satellite
device into a satellite device. A switch might not be recognized as a satellite device for
several reasons, including that the device was not previously autoconverted into a satellite
device or that the switch had previously been reverted from a satellite device to a
standalone switch.
Before you begin:
•
Ensure that your aggregation device is running Junos OS Release 14.2R5 or later, and
that the switches that will become satellite devices are running Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D30 or later.
To manually convert a switch into a satellite device:
1.
Cable a link between the aggregation device and the satellite device.
2. Log in to the aggregation device.
3. Configure the link on the aggregation device into a cascade port, if you have not done
so already.
For example, to configure interface xe-0/0/1 on the aggregation device into a cascade
port:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set interfaces xe-0/0/1 cascade-port
56
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
4. Associate an FPC slot ID with the satellite device.
Examples:
•
To configure the FPC slot ID of the satellite device that is connected to xe-0/0/1 to
101:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 101 cascade-ports
xe-0/0/1
•
To map FPC slot ID 101 to the satellite device using the serial number ABCDEFGHIJKL:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 101 serial-number
ABCDEFGHIJKL
•
To map FPC slot ID to the satellite device using MAC address 12:34:56:AB:CD:EF:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management fpc 110 system-id
12:34:56:AB:CD:EF
5. Configure the interface on the aggregation device into a software upgrade group.
For example, to add a satellite device with FPC number 101 to an existing software
group named group1, or create a software upgrade group named group1 and add a
satellite device configured with FPC number 101 to the group:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management upgrade-group group1 satellite
101
If you are creating a new software upgrade group in this step, you also need to associate
the group with a satellite software image. You can skip this final step if the software
upgrade group has been created and an association already exists.
Before associating a satellite software image with a satellite software group, the
configuration with the satellite software upgrade group must be committed:
[edit]
user@satellite-device# commit synchronize
After committing the configuration, associate a satellite software image named
satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz to the upgrade group named group1:
user@aggregation-device> request system software add
/var/tmp/satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz upgrade-group group1
6. Manually configure the switch into a satellite device:
user@aggregation-device> request chassis satellite interface interface-name device-mode
satellite
For example, to manually configure the switch that is connecting the satellite device
to interface xe-0/0/1 on the aggregation device into a satellite device:
user@aggregation-device> request chassis satellite interface xe-0/0/1 device-mode satellite
The satellite software upgrade on the satellite device begins after this final step is
completed.
After the satellite software update, the switch operates as a satellite device in the
Junos Fusion topology

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Configuring a Switch into a Satellite Device Before Connecting It to a Junos Fusion
Topology
Use this procedure to install the satellite software onto a switch before interconnecting
it into a Junos Fusion topology as a satellite device. Installing the satellite software on a
switch before interconnecting it to a Junos Fusion topology allows you to more
immediately deploy the switch as a satellite device by avoiding the downtime associated
with the satellite software installation procedure for Junos Fusion.
Before you begin:
•
Ensure that your switch that will become a satellite device is running Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D30 or later.
•
Ensure that you have copied the satellite software onto the device that will become
a satellite device.
NOTE: Ensure there is sufficient space available in the /var/tmp directory
to be able to copy the software to the switch (especially for EX4300
switches). If there is not enough memory available, issue the request system
storage cleanup command on the device before attempting to perform the
conversion.
In satellite software release 1.0R3 and later, a
satellite-ppc-release-signed.tgz package is included specifically for
converting Junos OS to satellite software on an EX4300 switch to address
a memory space issue. The satellite-ppc package is to be used only for
configuring a standalone EX4300 switch into a satellite device before
connecting it to a Junos Fusion topology.
1.
You can manually install the satellite software onto a switch by entering the following
command:
user@satellite-device> request chassis device-mode satellite URL-to-satellite-software
For instance, to install the satellite software package satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz
stored in the /var/tmp/ directory on the switch:
user@satellite-device> request chassis device-mode satellite
/var/tmp/satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz
•
To install satellite software onto a QFX5100 switch, use the
satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz satellite software package.
•
To install satellite software onto a EX4300 switch, use the
satellite-ppc-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz satellite software package.
2. The device will reboot to complete the satellite software installation.
58
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
After the satellite software is installed, follow this procedure to connect the switch into
a Junos Fusion topology:
1.
Log in to the aggregation device.
2. Configure the link on the aggregation device into a cascade port, if you have not done
so already.
For example, to configure interface xe-0/0/1 on the aggregation device into a cascade
port:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set interfaces xe-0/0/1 cascade-port
3. Configure the satellite switch into a satellite software upgrade group that is using the
same version of satellite software that was manually installed onto the switch.
This step is advisable, but not always required. Completing this step ensures that the
satellite software on your device is upgraded to the version of satellite software
associated with the satellite software upgrade group when the satellite device
connects to the aggregation device.
4. Commit the configuration.
To commit the configuration to both Routing Engines:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit synchronize
To commit the configuration to a single Routing Engine:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit
5. Cable a link between the aggregation device and the satellite device.
Configuring Satellite Device Upgrade Groups
To simplify the upgrade process for multiple satellite devices, you can create a software
upgrade group at the aggregation device, assign satellite devices to the group, and install
the satellite software on a groupwide basis.
To create a software upgrade group and assign satellite devices to the group, include
the satellite statement at the [edit chassis satellite-management upgrade-groups
upgrade-group-name] hierarchy level.
To configure a software upgrade group and assign satellite devices to the group:
1.
Log in to the aggregation device.
2. Create the software upgrade group, and add the satellite devices to the group.
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management upgrade-groups
upgrade-group-name satellite satellite-member-number-or-range
upgrade-group-name is the name of the upgrade group, and the
satellite-member-number-or-range is the member numbers of the satellite devices that
are being added to the upgrade group. If you enter an existing upgrade group name as
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
59
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
the upgrade-group-name, you add new satellite devices to the existing software upgrade
group.
For example, to create a software upgrade group named group1 that includes all satellite
devices numbered 101 through 120, configure the following:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# set chassis satellite-management upgrade-groups group1 satellite
101-120
To install, remove, or roll back a satellite software version on an upgrade group, issue
the following operational mode commands:
•
request system software add upgrade-group group-name—Install the satellite software
on all members of the specified upgrade group.
•
request system software delete upgrade-group group-name—Remove the satellite
software association from the specified upgrade group.
•
request system software rollback upgrade-group group-name—Associate an upgrade
group with a previous version of satellite software.
Customers installing satellite software on EX4300 and QFX5100 switches referenced
in a software upgrade group, use the following command:
user@aggregation-device> request system software add upgrade-group group-name
source/satellite-1.0R4.2-signed.tgz
A copy of the satellite software is saved on the aggregation device. When you add a
satellite device to an upgrade group that is not running the same satellite software version,
the new satellite device is automatically updated to the version of satellite software that
is associated with the upgrade group.
You can issue the show chassis satellite software command to see which software images
are stored on the aggregation device and which upgrade groups are associated with the
software images.
Converting a Satellite Device to a Standalone Device
In the event that you need to convert a satellite device to a standalone device, you will
need to install a new Junos OS software package on the satellite device and remove it
from the Junos Fusion topology.
NOTE: If the satellite device is a QFX5100 switch, you need to install a PXE
version of Junos OS. The PXE version of Junos OS is the software that includes
pxe in the Junos OS package name when it is downloaded from the Software
Center—for example, the PXE image for Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D30 is
named install-media-pxe-qfx-5-14.1X53-D30.3.tgz. If the satellite device is
an EX4300 switch, you install a standard jinstall-ex-4300 version of Junos
OS.
60

Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
The following steps explain how to download software, remove the satellite device from
Junos Fusion, and install the Junos OS software image on the satellite device so that the
device can operate as a standalone device.
1.
Using a Web browser, navigate to the Junos OS software download URL on the Juniper
Networks webpage:
http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads
2. Log in to the Juniper Networks authentication system using the username (generally
your e-mail address) and password supplied by Juniper Networks representatives.
3. Select By Technology > Junos Platform > Junos Fusion from the drop-down list and
select the switch platform series and model for your satellite device.
4. Select the Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D30 software image for your platform.
5. Review and accept the End User License Agreement.
6. Download the software to a local host.
7. Copy the software to the routing platform or to your internal software distribution
site.
8. Remove the satellite device from the automatic satellite conversion configuration.
If automatic satellite conversion is enabled for the satellite device’s member number,
remove the member number from the automatic satellite conversion configuration.
The satellite device’s member number is the same as the FPC slot ID. You can check
the automatic satellite conversion configuration by entering the show command at
the [edit chassis satellite-management auto-satellite-conversion] hierarchy level.
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# delete chassis satellite-management auto-satellite-conversion
satellite member-number
For example, to remove member number 101 from Junos Fusion:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# delete chassis satellite-management auto-satellite-conversion
satellite 101
9. Commit the configuration.
To commit the configuration to both Routing Engines:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit synchronize
Otherwise, commit the configuration to a single Routing Engine:
[edit]
user@aggregation-device# commit
10. Install the Junos OS software on the satellite device to convert the device to a
standalone device.
[edit]
user@aggregation-device> request chassis satellite install URL-to-software-package fpc-slot

[edit]
user@aggregation-device> request chassis satellite install
/var/tmp/jinstall-ex-4300-14.1X53-D30.3-domestic-signed.tgz fpc-slot 101
The satellite device stops participating in the Junos Fusion topology once the software
installation starts. The software upgrade starts after this command is entered.
11. Wait for the reboot that accompanies the software installation to complete.
12. When you are prompted to log back into your device, uncable the device from the
Junos Fusion topology. See Removing a Transceiver from a QFX Series Device or
Removing a Transceiver from a Switch, as needed. Your device has been removed from
Junos Fusion.
NOTE: The device uses a factory default configuration after the Junos OS
installation is complete.
Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases
Support for upgrades and downgrades that span more than three Junos OS releases at
a time is not provided, except for releases that are designated as Extended End-of-Life
(EEOL) releases. EEOL releases provide direct upgrade and downgrade paths—you can
upgrade directly from one EEOL release to the next EEOL release even though EEOL
releases generally occur in increments beyond three releases.
You can upgrade or downgrade to the EEOL release that occurs directly before or after
the currently installed EEOL release, or to two EEOL releases before or after. For example,
Junos OS Releases 10.0, 10.4, and 11.4 are EEOL releases. You can upgrade from Junos
OS Release 10.0 to Release 10.4 or even from Junos OS Release 10.0 to Release 11.4.
However, you cannot upgrade directly from a non-EEOL release that is more than three
releases ahead or behind. For example, you cannot directly upgrade from Junos OS
Release 10.3 (a non-EEOL release) to Junos OS Release 11.4 or directly downgrade from
Junos OS Release 11.4 to Junos OS Release 10.3.
To upgrade or downgrade from a non-EEOL release to a release more than three releases
before or after, first upgrade to the next EEOL release and then upgrade or downgrade
from that EEOL release to your target release.
For more information on EEOL releases and to review a list of EEOL releases, see
http://www.juniper.net/support/eol/junos.html

Product Compatibility
Downgrading from Release 14.2
To downgrade from Release 14.2 to another supported release, follow the procedure for
upgrading, but replace the 14.2 jinstall package with one that corresponds to the
appropriate release.
NOTE: You cannot downgrade more than three releases. For example, if your
routing platform is running Junos OS Release 11.4, you can downgrade the
software to Release 10.4 directly, but not to Release 10.3 or earlier; as a
workaround, you can first downgrade to Release 10.4 and then downgrade
to Release 10.3.

Module Reference, and wavelength.]
Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) (RADIUS)
•
RADIUS functionality over IPv6 for system AAA—Starting in Release 14.2, Junos OS
supports RADIUS functionality over IPv6 for system AAA (authentication, authorization,
and accounting) in addition to the existing RADIUS functionality over IPv4 for system
AAA. With this feature, Junos OS users can log in to the router authenticated through
RADIUS over an IPv6 network. Thus, Junos OS users can now configure both IPv4 and
IPv6 RADIUS servers for AAA. To accept the IPv6 source address, include the
source-address-inet6 statement at the [edit system radius-server ipv6] hierarchy level.
(If an IPv6 RADIUS server is configured without any source-address-inet6, default ::0
is used as the source address.)
[See Configuring RADIUS Authentication, and Configuring RADIUS System Accounting.]
Class of Service (CoS)
•
Support for user-configurable traffic class map (T4000 routers with Type 5
FPC)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2 introduces a user-configurable input priority
map, known as a traffic class map, that helps prioritize and classify input traffic entering
a Packet Forwarding Engine during ingress oversubscription. You can define traffic
class maps for a packet on the basis of the following CoS code points:
•
Differentiated Services code point (DSCP) for IP DiffServ
•
IP precedence bits
•
MPLS EXP bits
•
IEEE 802.1p CoS bits
•
IEEE-802.1ad drop eligible indicator (DEI) bits
You can associate the traffic class map to one of the following traffic classes:
•
Real time
•
Network control
•
Best effort
[See Configuring Traffic Class Maps.]
•
Source class accounting (T4000)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the source
class accounting is performed at the ingress on a T4000 Type 5 FPC in T4000 routers.
[See Understanding Source Class Usage and Destination Class Usage Options.]
•
Increased per-VC bandwidth speed on ATM MIC with SFP (MX Series with MPCs
and ATM MIC with SFP)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure constant
bit rate (CBR) bandwith speeds up to 622 Mbps (OC12) per virtual circuit (VC) on an
MX Series router with an ATM MIC with SFP (model number MIC-3D-8OC3-2OC12-ATM)
and a supported MPC installed. In earlier Junos OS releases, you could configure per-VC
CBR bandwidth speeds only up to 155 Mbps (OC3) on an ATM MIC with SFP.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
67
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
With the increased per-VC CBR bandwidth speed, each VC can support up to line rate
traffic in OC12 mode, subject to the following restrictions:
•
You must configure the CBR service category when you define the ATM traffic shaping
and scheduling profile.
For other ATM service categories including variable bit rate nonreal time (VBR-NRT),
variable bit rate real time (VBR-RT), and unspecified bit rate (UBR), the per-VC
bandwidth speed for an ATM MIC with SFP remains a maximum of 155 Mbps.
•
The actual Layer 3 payload throughput you obtain depends on the ATM encapsulation
type and IP packet size you use.
[See CoS on Circuit Emulation ATM MICs Overview.]
•
Support for packet marking schemes on a per-customer basis (MX
Series)—Traditionally, packet marking in Junos OS uses the forwarding class and loss
priority determined from a BA classifier or multifield classifier. This approach does not
allow for direct assignment of rewrite rules on a per-customer basis due to the limited
number of combinations of forwarding class and loss priority.
Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, there is a packet marking scheme, called
policy map, that allows the definition of rewrite rules on a per-customer basis. Policy
maps are defined at the [edit class-of-service policy-map] hierarchy level and can be
assigned to a customer through a firewall action, an ingress interface, or a routing
policy.
General Routing
•
Configurable TCP MSS value (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can
configure the TCP MSS value on MX Series routers. To specify a TCP MSS value, include
the tcp-mss statement at the [edit interfaces interface-name unit logical-unit-number
family family] hierarchy level.
•
Configuring routing process mode (MX Series)— Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2,
you can configure routing process mode to 64-bit mode or 32-bit mode.
[See routing.]
High Availability (HA) and Resiliency
•
68
Support for Ethernet alarm indication signal (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2, ITU-T Y.1731 Ethernet alarm indication signal function (ETH-AIS) is
supported on MX Series routers. ETH-AIS provides fault management for service
providers where it enables the service provider to suppress alarms when a fault condition
is detected. Using ETH-AIS, you can differentiate faults at the customer level and faults
at the provider level. When a fault condition is detected, a maintenance end point
(MEP) generates and transmits ETH-AIS packets to the configured router for a specified
duration until the fault condition is cleared. An MEP that is configured to generate
ETH-AIS packets transmits the signals to a level higher than its own. Therefore, the
MEP receiving ETH-AIS packets recognizes that the fault is at a lower level and
suppresses alarms at its own level.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
MX Series routers support ETH-AIS protocol data unit (PDU) generation for server
MEPs on the basis of the following defect conditions:
•
Loss of connectivity (physical link loss detection)
•
Layer 2 circuit or Layer 2 VPN down
[See Ethernet Alarm Indication Signal (ETH-AIS) Function Overview.]
•
MX Series Virtual Chassis support for logical systems (MX Series with
MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, MX Series Virtual Chassis configurations
support the use of logical systems. A logical system independently performs a subset
of the tasks performed by the main router and has a unique routing table, and unique
interfaces, policies, and routing instances. In earlier Junos OS releases, MX Series Virtual
Chassis configurations do not support the logical systems feature.
To configure routing policies or enable a protocol such as OSPF when you are using
logical systems with an MX Series Virtual Chassis, you must include routing policy
configuration statements at the [edit logical-systems logical-system-name
policy-options] hierarchy level, and protocol configuration statements at the [edit
logical-systems logical-system-name protocols] hierarchy level.
[See Introduction to Logical Systems.]
•
MX Series Virtual Chassis support on MS-MPCs (MX Series with MS-MPCs)—Starting
in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure a two-member MX Series Virtual Chassis
to use the stateful firewall advanced service on MX240, MX480, or MX960 routers
with Multiservices MPCs (MS-MPCs) and Multiservices MICs (MS-MICs) installed. A
two-member MX Series Virtual Chassis configuration supports a maximum of four
MS-MPCs and four MS-MICs per Virtual Chassis.
In earlier Junos OS releases, MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers did not support
MS-MPCs or MS-MICs in MX Series Virtual Chassis configurations.
•
Support for MS-MPC on SCBE2 (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R2,
MS-MPC is supported on SCBE2 on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers.
•
MX Series Virtual Chassis support for MX2010 and MX2020 member routers (MX
Series with MPCs/MICs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, you can configure an
MX2010 router or MX2020 router as a member router in an MX Series Virtual Chassis.
In earlier releases, MX2010 routers and MX2020 routers cannot function as member
routers in an MX Series Virtual Chassis.
In a two-member Virtual Chassis configuration, the following member router
combinations are supported with an MX2010 router or MX2020 router:
•
MX960 router and MX2010 router
•
MX960 router and MX2020 router
•
MX2010 router and MX2020 router
•
MX2010 router and MX2010 router
•
MX2020 router and MX2020 router
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
69
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
To ensure that a Virtual Chassis configuration consisting of an MX2020 router and
either an MX960 router or MX2010 router forms properly, you must issue the request
virtual-chassis member-id set member member-id slots-per-chassis slot-count command,
where member-id is the member ID (0 or 1) configured for the MX960 router or MX2010
router, and slot-count is 20 to match the slot count for the MX2020 router. In addition,
for a Virtual Chassis that includes an MX2020 member router, all four Routing Engines
in the Virtual Chassis configuration must have at least 16 gigabytes of memory.
•
Enhancements made to unified ISSU for VRRPv3 to avoid adjacency flap (M Series
and MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, enhancements have been made
to maintain protocol adjacency with peer routers during unified ISSU and to maintain
interoperability among equipment and with other Junos OS releases and other Juniper
Networks products. This design is for VRRPv3 only. VRRPv1 and VRRPv2 are not
supported. The show vrrp command output is updated to display unified ISSU
information.
Interfaces and Chassis
•
•
Unified in-service software upgrade support—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2,
unified in-service software upgrade (unified ISSU) is supported on the following MICs:
•
Channelized SONET/SDH OC3/STM1 (Multi-Rate) MICs with SFP
•
Channelized SONET/SDH OC3/STM1 (Multi-Rate) MICs with SFP
•
Channelized E1/T1 Circuit Emulation MIC
•
DS3/E3 MIC
Support for inline active flow monitoring (T4000 routers with
T4000-FPC5-3D)—Beginning with Release 14.2, Junos OS supports inline active flow
monitoring services on T4000 routers with T4000-FPC5-3D. Inline active flow
monitoring is implemented on the Packet Forwarding Engine. Inline active flow
monitoring supports version 9 and IPFIX flow collection templates.
[See Configuring Inline Active flow Monitoring.]
•
New command to set the license mode for MPCs (MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010,
and MX2020)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can set the license mode for
enhanced MPCs such as MPC4E, MPC5E, and MPC6E by including the ir-mode
configuration statement at the [edit chassis fpc] hierarchy level. Setting the license
mode enables you to distinguish between an MPC with an IR license and an MPC with
an R license after the MPC is installed on the router.
NOTE: You cannot set or alter the license of the MPC when you configure
the mode. The license mode settings are used only to provide information.
The license mode settings are set per slot. If the MPC is installed on a different slot, or
moved to another device, the license mode settings must be re-configured on the new
slot or device. Also, the license mode settings configured on the previous slot must be
removed. To view the current license mode settings, as well as the effect of the new

settings, use the show chassis fpc and show chassis hardware extensive commands.
To delete the license mode settings, use the delete chassis fpc command.
•
Supported for mixed-mode aggregated Ethernet (MX Series)—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2, support for mixed aggregated Ethernet bundles is extended to MX240,
MX480, MX960, MX2010, and MX2020 routers, thereby enabling you to configure the
MPC-based member links with any combination of rates—10-Gigabit Ethernet,
40-Gigabit Ethernet, and 100-Gigabit Ethernet—on an aggregated Ethernet interface.
[See Understanding Mixed Rates and Mixed Modes on Aggregated Ethernet Bundles.]
•
Support for MPC5E on SCBE2 (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2,
MPC5E is supported on SCBE2 on the MX240, MX480, and MX960.
•
Entropy label support in mixed mode (MX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release
14.2, the entropy label is supported in mixed mode for chassis. MX Series 3D Universal
Edge Router DPCs support the pop-out entropy label but do not support the flow label.
The entropy label can be configured without enhanced-ip configuration.
•
Support for private VLAN (MX240, MX480, and MX960)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2, you can configure a private VLAN on a single MX Series router to span
multiple MX Series routers. VLANs limit broadcasts to specified users. Private VLANs
take this concept a step further by limiting communication within the VLAN. Private
VLANs accomplish this limitation by restricting traffic flows through their member
switch ports (which are called private ports) so that these ports communicate only
with a specified uplink trunk port or with specified ports within the same VLAN. The
uplink trunk port (or link aggregation group or LAG) is usually connected to a router,
firewall, server, or provider network. Each private VLAN typically contains many private
ports that communicate only with a single uplink, thereby preventing the ports from
communicating with each other. Private VLANs provide Layer 2 isolation between ports
within the same VLAN, splitting a broadcast domain into multiple isolated broadcast
subdomains and essentially putting secondary VLANs inside another primary VLAN.
You can configure an isolated VLAN within a private VLAN that spans multiple switches
by including the isolated-vlan vlan-id statement at the [edit bridge-domains
bridge-domain-name] hierarchy level. You configure an interface to be the trunk port,
connecting routers that are configured with a private VLAN across these routers by
including the interface-mode trunk inter-switch-link statement at the [edit interfaces
ethernet-interface-name unit logical-unit-number family bridge] hierarchy level. The
private VLAN trunk port is a member of all the VLANs within the private VLAN (that is,
the primary VLAN, the community VLANs, and the interswitch isolated VLAN). It can
communicate with all ports other than the isolated ports. You configure a community
VLAN, which is a secondary VLAN that transports frames among community interfaces
within the same community and forwards frames upstream to the primary VLAN, by
specifying a list of VLAN IDs separated by spaces by including the community-vlan
vlan-ids statement at the [edit bridge-domains bridge-domain-name] hierarchy level.
This functionality is supported only on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers that function
in enhanced LAN mode (by entering the network-services lan statement at the [edit
chassis] hierarchy level).
•
Port-based network access control (MX240, MX480, and MX960)—Starting in Junos
OS Release 14.2, support is implemented for controlling access to your network through
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
71
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
an MX Series router by using several different authentication methods, by configuring
802.1X, MAC RADIUS, or a captive portal. This functionality is supported on an MX
Series Virtual Chassis combination that functions in enhanced LAN mode (by entering
the network-services lan statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level). Port-based
network access control is supported on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers with MPCs
in both the MX-LAN mode and the non-MX-LAN mode (with other supported network
services modes on MPCs on these routers). To configure the IEEE 802.1x Port-Based
Network Access Control protocol on Ethernet interfaces, you must configure the
authenticator statement at the [edit protocols authentication-access-control] hierarchy
level. You can also configure captive portal authentication on a router so that users
connected to the switch are authenticated before being allowed to access the network.
You can also configure Junos Pulse Access Control Service as the access policy to
authenticate and authorize users connected to the switch for admission to the network
and for access to protected network resources by using the uac-policy statement.
•
MAC RADIUS authentication (MX Series routers with DPCs and MPCs)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2, on MX Series routers with MPCs and DPCs, you can permit
devices that are not 802.1X-enabled LAN access by configuring MAC RADIUS
authentication on the MX Series router interfaces to which the hosts are connected.
You can also allow non-802.1X-enabled devices to access the LAN by configuring their
MAC address for static MAC bypass of authentication. You can configure MAC RADIUS
authentication on an interface that also allows 802.1X authentication, or you can
configure either authentication method alone. Include the mac-radius flap-on-disconnect
statement at the [edit protocols dot1x authenticator interface interface-name] hierarchy
level to cause the router to reset the interface on which the supplicant is authenticated
when the RADIUS server sends a disconnect message to a supplicant. If the interface
is configured for multiple supplicant mode, the switch resets all the supplicants on the
specified interface. This option takes effect only when the restrict option is also set.
To restrict authentication to MAC RADIUS only, include the mac-radius restrict
statement at the [edit protocols dot1x authenticator interface interface-name] hierarchy
level. In restrictive mode, all 802.1X packets are eliminated and the attached device
on the interface is considered a nonresponsive host.
If both MAC RADIUS and 802.1X authentication are enabled on the interface, the switch
first sends the host three EAPOL requests to the host. If there is no response from the
host, the switch sends the host’s MAC address to the RADIUS server to check whether
it is a permitted MAC address. If the MAC address is configured as permitted on the
RADIUS server, the RADIUS server sends a message to the switch that the MAC address
is a permitted address, and the switch opens LAN access to the nonresponsive host
on the interface to which it is connected.
•
72
Support for MACsec (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, you can
configure Media Access Control Security (MACsec) on MX Series routers with the
enhanced 20-port Gigabit Ethernet MIC (model number MIC-3D-20GE-SFP-E). MACsec
is an industry-standard security technology that provides secure communication for
almost all types of traffic on Ethernet links. You can enable MACsec using static
connectivity association key (CAK) security mode or static secure association key
(SAK) security mode by using the connectivity-association connectivity-association-name
statement and its substatements at the [edit security macsec] hierarchy level. MACsec
is supported on MX Series routers in both enhanced LAN mode (by entering the
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
network-services lan statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level) and in
non-enhanced LAN mode.
MACsec using static secure association key (SAK) security mode does not work properly
on MX80 routers and FPC slots other than slot 0 of MX104 routers. MACsec is not
supported with unified ISSU. After a unified ISSU operation is completed, an FPC reboot
is required for MACSec to work. If you upgrade a router from an earlier Junos OS release
to Release 14.2R2 using unified ISSU and MACsec is configured on that router, you must
reboot the FPC for MACsec to function properly.
•
Support for fabric black-hole detection and recovery (TX Matrix Plus)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2, TX Matrix Plus routers can detect and recover from fabric faults
that are not caused by hardware failure.
To recover from a fabric black-hole condition, the routing matrix uses the following
options:
•
SFC SIB Reboot
•
LCC SIB Reboot
•
FPC Reboot
•
Destination Reprogramming
•
Interchassis Link Retraining
You can disable the automatic recovery feature by using the auto-recovery-disable
statement at the [edit chassis fabric degraded] hierarchy level. You can also turn the
FPC offline by using the fpc-offline-on-blackholing statement at the [edit chassis fabric
degraded] hierarchy level if nonrecoverable errors are present in the routing matrix.
[See fpc-offline-on-blackholing and auto-recovery-disable.]
•
Support for inclusion of element IDs 54 and 64 in IPFIX templates (MX
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the following attributes can be contained
in IPFIX flow templates that are sent to the flow collector:
•
fragmentIdentification (element ID 54)
•
ipv6ExtensionHeaders (element ID 64)
To enable the inclusion of element ID 54 and element ID 64, IPFIX flow templates that
are exported to the flow collector, include the ipv6-extended-attrib statement at the
[edit chassis fpc slot-number inline-services flow-table-size] hierarchy level. Collection
of IPv4 fragmentation IDs occurs automatically without having to configure this setting
explicitly.
•
Enhanced Y.1731 functionality on VPWS to support ETH-LM for dual VLAN tags (MX
Series)–Staring with Release 14.2, Junos OS supports Ethernet frame loss measurement
(ETH-LM) between maintenance association end points (MEPs) configured on Ethernet
physical or logical interfaces on Rev-B Dense Port Concentrators (DPCs) in MX Series
routers. Additionally, the Y.1731 functionality supports ETH-LM only for an end-to-end
connection that uses Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS). Prior to Junos OS Release
14.2, this functionality did not support ETH-LM for dual VLAN identifier tags. It only
supported ETH-LM for untagged or single VLAN identifier tags. Starting with Junos OS
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
73
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Release 14.2, the Y.1731 functionality supports ETH-LM on VPWS for dual VLAN identifier
tags as well.
•
Support for enhanced link aggregation group on (MX Series routers with
MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure an enhanced link
aggregation group (LAG) on MX Series routers. When you associate a physical interface
with an aggregated Ethernet interface, the physical child links are also associated with
the parent aggregated Ethernet interface to form a LAG.
In the absence of enhanced LAG support, one child next hop is created for each member
link of an aggregated Ethernet interface for each VLAN interface. For example, an
aggregate next hop for an aggregated Ethernet interface with 16 member links leads
to the installation of 17 next hops per VLAN created. Thus the number of next hops
supported on the routers with aggregated Ethernet interfaces is significantly reduced.
With the enhanced LAG support, when the set chassis network-services enhanced-ip
statement is configured, child next hops are not created for member links and, as a
result, a higher number of next hops can be supported.
•
Support for physical interface damping (M Series and MX Series )—Beginning with
Junos OS 14.2, interface damping is supported on physical interfaces to address longer
periodic flapping lasting 5 seconds or more, with an up and down duration of one
second. This damping method limits the number of advertisements of longer interface
up and down events to the upper-level protocols. For longer periodic interface flaps,
configure interface damping with the damping statement at the [edit interfaces
interface-name] hierarchy level. You use the show interfaces extensive command to
view the interface damping values and link state.
[See Damping Longer Physical Interface Transitions.]
•
74
Ethernet ring protection switching (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2,
MX Series routers support Ethernet ring protection switching (ERPS) which is defined
in ITU-T Recommendation G.8032/Y.1344 version 2. ERPS comprises the following
features:
•
G.8032/Y.1344 version 2 compliant protocol state-machine with the new FDB flush
mechanism
•
Support for revertive and nonrevertive mode of operation of the Ethernet ring
•
Support for manual commands such as manual switch, force switch, and clear
commands
•
Support for configurable wait-to-restore, wait-to-block, and guard timers
•
Support for multiple logical ring instances on the same physical ring
•
Support for ring interconnection using non-virtual-channel mode. Ring interconnection
using virtual channel mode is not supported.
•
Support for ring ID values from 1 through 239
•
Support for ring protection link neighbor node
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
•
Support for topology change propagation from a sub-ring to an interconnected major
ring
•
Ability to add a node or remove a node from the Ethernet ring
[See Understanding Ethernet Ring Protection Switching Functionality.]
•
MS-MIC support (MX104)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the Multiservices MIC
(MS-MIC-16G) is supported on MX104 3D Universal Edge Routers. The MS-MIC has an
enhanced memory of 16 GB and provides improved scaling and high performance. The
MX104 chassis is capable of supporting two MS-MICs.
The MS-MIC supports the following software features:
•
Active flow monitoring exports flow monitoring version 9 records, based on RFC
3954
•
IPsec encryption
•
Network Address Translation (NAT) for IP addresses
•
Port Address Translation (PAT) for port numbers
•
Real-time performance monitoring
•
Stateful firewall with packet inspection which detects SYN attacks, ICMP and UDP
floods, and ping-of-death attacks
•
Traffic sampling
[See Multiservices MIC.]
•
Support for hold-off timing synchronization (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release
14.2, you can configure hold-off time for Synchronous Ethernet interfaces and external
clock synchronization sources to prevent rapid successive switching. If an interface
goes down, hold-off time delays short signal failures from being sent to the clock
selection process.
If you configure hold-off time when quality level (QL) mode is enabled, the configured
quality level is used in the clock selection process during the hold-off time period. After
the hold-off time period ends, a signal failure is sent to the clock selection process.
To configure hold-off time, include the hold-off-time statement at the [set chassis
synchronization source interfaces (external-a | external-b | interface interface-name)]
hierarchy level.
[See Understanding Clock Synchronization on MX Series Routers.]
•
Support for Synchronous Ethernet on MPC5E and MPC6E (MX240, MX480, MX960,
MX2010, and MX2020)—Starting with Release 14.2, Junos OS extends Synchronous
Ethernet support to MPC5E and MPC6E on the MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, and
MX2020 routers. MPC5E-40G10G, MPC5EQ-40G10G, MPC5E-100G10G,
MPC5EQ-100G10G, and MX2K-MPC6E support Ethernet Synchronization Messaging
Channel (ESMC) and external clocking.
To configure Synchronous Ethernet, include the synchronization statement and its
substatements at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level.

•
Support for REST interfaces (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2, M Series, MX Series, and T Series routers support REST interfaces for
secure connection to Junos OS devices and execution of remote procedure calls, a
REST API Explorer GUI enabling you to conveniently experiment with any of the REST
APIs, and a variety of formatting and display options, including JSON support.
[See REST API Guide.]
•
Aggregated Ethernet-specific naming for logical systems—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2, aggregated Ethernet interfaces created under a logical system can be
individually named. Prior to Release 14.2, aggregated Ethernet interfaces were named
automatically, AE1, AE2, and so on, upon setting the device count, and system resources
were allocated for each aggregated Ethernet interface regardless of whether it was
used or not. This change allows administrators to use whatever naming scheme makes
sense in the context of their deployment and is more efficient in the allocation of system
resources.
•
Increase available bandwidth by bypassing the queuing chip (MX240, MX480,
MX960, MX2010, MX2020)—On MPC1 Q, MPC1E Q, MPC2 Q, MPC2 EQ, MPC2E Q,
MPC2E EQ, and MPC5E Q line cards, starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, when
hierarchical and per-VLAN queuing features are not required, you can bypass the
queuing chip to increase the available bandwidth on an interface. You can bypass the
queuing chip by enabling the bypass-queuing-chip statement at the [edit interfaces
interface-name] hierarchy level.
[See Increase Available Bandwidth on Rich-Queuing MPCs by Bypassing the Queuing
Chip.]
•
Configuration support to keep an MC-LAG aggregated Ethernet link up for a peer
with limited LACP capability—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure
an aggregated Ethernet link or interface in an MC-LAG topology to remain up even
when the peer link or peer interface has limited Link Access Control Protocol (LACP)
capability.
To configure this feature, configure the force-up statement at the [edit interfaces

Load balancing for ECMP next hops (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.2, the following load-balancing solutions are supported on equal-cost multipath
(ECMP) next hops to correct traffic imbalance among the member links:
•
Adaptive — Uses real-time feedback and control mechanism to monitor and manage
traffic imbalances.
•
Random spray — Packet random spray load balancing randomly sprays the packets
to the aggregate next hops to ensure that the next hops are equally loaded.
To configure adaptive load balancing use the ecmp-alb statement at the [edit chassis]
hierarchy level. However, to configure adaptive load balancing, make sure that the
per-packet statement is enabled at the [edit policy-options policy-statement policy_name
then load-balance] hierarchy level. To configure random load balancing, use the random
statement at the [edit policy-options policy-statement policy_name then load-balance]
hierarchy level.

New and Changed Features
•
Enhanced Y.1731 functionality on VPWS to support ETH-LM for dual VLAN tags (MX
Series)—Starting with Release 14.2, Junos OS supports Ethernet frame loss
measurement (ETH-LM) between maintenance association end points (MEPs)
configured on Ethernet physical or logical interfaces on Enhanced Dense Port
Concentrators (DPCEs) in MX Series routers. The Y.1731 functionality supports ETH-LM
only for an end-to-end connection that uses Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS). In
releases before Release 14.2, Junos OS supports ETH-LM only for untagged or
single-tagged VLAN identifiers. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, ETH-LM is
supported on VPWS for dual VLAN identifier tags as well.
[See Ethernet Frame Loss Measurement Overview.]
•
Support for interface damping for longer periodic interface flaps (MX960, MX480,
MX240, MX80 3D Universal Edge Routers and M10i Multiservice Edge
Routers)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, interface damping is supported on
physical interfaces to address longer periodic flapping lasting 5 seconds or more, with
an up and down duration of 1 second. This damping method limits the number of
advertisements of longer interface up and down events to the upper-level protocols.
For longer periodic interface flaps, configure interface damping by using the damping
statement at the [edit interfaces interface-name] hierarchy level. You use the show
interfaces extensive command to view the interface damping values and link state.
[See Damping Longer Physical Interface Transitions.]
•
Support for NAT port block allocation (MX Series routers with
MS-MPCs/MS-MICs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, you can configure port
block allocation for NAT with port translation (NAPT) on MX Series routers with
MS-MPCs or MS-MICs. You can use the existing CLI and configuration procedures used
for other interface cards. Deterministic port block allocation is not supported.
[See Configuring Address Pools for Network Address Port Translation (NAPT) Overview
and secured-port-block-allocation.]
•
Provide egress VLAN ID and direction information in sampling records (MX
Series)—Starting in Release 14.2R2 , Junos OS includes egress VLAN ID and flow
direction information in output records and, optionally, flow keys, when you perform
sampling using the IPFIX or version 9 templates.
•
VLAN ID used for single-tagging is output to field 58, Vlan Id.
•
VLAN IDs used for dual-tagging (QinQ) are output to fields 243, Dot1q Vlan Id, and
245, Dot1q Customer Vlan Id. (IPFIX template only)
•
To put one or two Vlan IDs in the flow key of the output record, include the vlan-id
option at the [edit services flow-monitoring version-ipfix template template-name
flow-key] or [edit services flow-monitoring version9 template template-name flow-key]
hierarchy level.
•
To put flow direction in the flow key of the output record, include the flow-direction

NOTE: In Junos OS releases earlier than Release 14.2R2, only ingress VLAN
IDs were reported in flow records.
[See Configuring Flow Aggregation to Use IPFIX Flow Templates and Configuring Flow
Aggregation to Use Version 9 Flow Templates.]
•
Support for ITU-T Y.1731 ETH-LM, ETH-SLM, and ETH-DM on aggregated Ethernet
interfaces (MX Series routers with MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R3, you
can configure ITU-T Y.1731 standard-compliant Ethernet loss measurement (ETH-LM),
Ethernet synthetic loss measurement (ETH-SLM), and Ethernet delay measurement
(ETH-DM) capabilities on aggregated Ethernet (ae) interfaces. These performance
monitoring functionalities are supported on MX Series routers with MPCs, where the
same level of support for the Ethernet services OAM mechanisms as the level of support
on non-aggregated Ethernet interfaces is available on aggregated Ethernet interfaces.
ETH-DM is supported on MPC3E and MPC4E modules with only software timestamping.
ETH-SLM is supported on MPC3E and MPC4E modules.
•
Configuration support to improve MC-LAG Layer 2 and Layer 3 convergence (MX
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, you can configure multichassis link
aggregation (MC-LAG) interfaces to improve Layer 2 and Layer 3 convergence time to
subsecond values when a multichassis aggregated Ethernet link goes down or comes
up in a bridge domain.
To use this feature, ensure that the interchassis link (ICL) is configured on an aggregated
Ethernet interface. For Layer 2 convergence, configure the enhanced-convergence
statement at the [edit interfaces aeX aggregated-ether-options mc-ae] hierarchy level.
For Layer 3, configure the enhanced-convergence statement at the [edit interfaces irb
unit unit-number] hierarchy level for an integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interface.
78
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
NOTE:
• If the enhanced-convergence feature is configured on a multichassis
aggregated Ethernet interface of a bridge domain that has an IRB
interface, the IRB interface must also be configured for the convergence
feature.
•
All multichassis aggregated Ethernet interfaces that are part of a bridge
domain must be configured for enhanced convergence in order to utilize
this feature on any of them.
•
On enabling or disabling the enhanced convergence feature, all services
get deleted and re-created.
[See Configuring Active-Active Bridging and VRRP over IRB in Multichassis Link Aggregation
on MX Series Routers.]
•
LACP hold-up timer configuration support on LAG interfaces—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2R3, you can configure a Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
hold-up timer value for link aggregation group (LAG) interfaces.
You configure the hold-up timer to prevent excessive flapping of a child (member) link
of a LAG interface due to transport layer issues. With transport layer issues, it is possible
for a link to be physically up and still cause an LACP state-machine flap. An LACP
state-machine flapping can adversely affect traffic on the LAG interface. To prevent
this, a hold-up timer value is configured. LACP monitors the PDUs received on the child
link for the configured time value, but does not allow the member link to transition
from the expired or defaulted state to current state. This configuration thus prevents
excessive flapping of the member link.
To configure the LACP hold-up timer for LAG interfaces, use the hold-time up timer-value
statement at the [edit interfaces ae aeX aggregated-ether-options lacp] hierarchy level.
•
CFP-100GBASE-ZR (MX Series)—In Junos OS Release 14.2R3 and later, the
CFP-100GBASE-ZR transceiver provides advanced dual polarization-quadrature phase
shift keying (DP-QPSK) coherent digital signal processing (DSP) and forward error
correction (FEC)-enabled robust tolerance to optical impairments and supports 80
km reach over single-mode fiber. The transceiver is not specified as part of IEEE 802.3
but is built according to Juniper Networks specifications. The following interface
modules support the CFP-100GBASE-ZR transceiver:
•
2x100GE + 8x10GE MPC4E (MPC4E-3D-2CGE-8XGE)
•
100-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with CFP (MIC3-3D-1X100GE-CFP)
For more information about the interface modules, see the “Cables and Connectors”
section in the MX Series Interface Module Reference.

IPv4
•
IPv4 address conservation method for hosting providers (MX Series)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2R4, you can configure a static route on an IRB interface with or
without pinning to a specific underlying interface, thereby conserving the usage of IP
address space.
When a customer needs servers to be assigned within a block of IP addresses, several
IP addresses are consumed. These include the network and broadcast IP addresses,
the addresses for the router gateway that the servers are connected to, and the
addresses of the individual servers. When this effect is multiplied across thousands of
hosting providers, IP address space is far from being used efficiently.
This issue can be resolved by configuring the interface on the router with an address
from the reserved IPv4 prefix for shared address space (RFC 6598) and by using static
routes pointed at the interface. IANA has recorded the allocation of an IPv4 /10 for use
as shared address space. The shared address space address range is 100.64.0.0/10.
This way, the interface in the router is allocated an IP address from the shared address
space, so it is not consuming publicly routable address space, and connectivity is
handled with static routes on an interface. The interface in the server is configured with
a publicly routable address, but the router interfaces are not. Network and broadcast
addresses are consumed out of the shared address space rather than the publicly
routable address space.
IPv6
•
IPv6 support for next-hop groups (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2,
this feature allows support of next-hop groups of type inet6 (IPv6). The following
features are also supported:
•
Configuration of interfaces of inet6 (IPv6) type at the [edit forwarding-options
port-mirroring family inet6 output] hierarchy level or subgroups at the [edit
forwarding-options port-mirroring family inet6 output next-hop-group] hierarchy level.
•
Configuration of next-hop groups as filter action.
•
Configuration of next-hop groups as port-mirror destination when specified at the
[edit forwarding-options port-mirroring family inet6 output] hierarchy level.
[See next-hop-group, port-mirroring, and [edit firewall] Hierarchy Level.]
Junos Fusion
•
Junos Fusion (MX Series)—Starting with Release 14.2, Junos Fusion is supported on
MX Series routers. For Junos Fusion related information, see “New and Changed
Features” on page 31 for Junos Fusion.
Layer 2 Features
•

and host-standby.]
•
Create multiple pseudowires on a per-virtual circuit basis (MX Series)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2, you can create multiple pseudowires between the same pair
of PEs in LDP-VPLS for a single routing instance, using the same loopback address.
Do this with the vpls-id-list option under LDP-VPLS neighbor. For each pseudowire
created under a neighbor, VPLS creates a VT/LSI interface and adds both it and the
label route to the mpls.0 table. Each pseudowire terminates in its specified mesh-group.
Support is added at the following CLI hierarchy level: [edit routing-instances
routing-instance-name protocols vpls mesh-group mesh-group-name neighbor address
pseudowire-status-tlv vpls-id-list vc-id-numbers vc-id-number].
[See the vpls-id-list command reference.]
•
Native analyzer support (MX240, MX480 and MX960)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2, MX Series routers support native analyzers and remote port-mirroring
capabilities. A native analyzer configuration contains both an input stanza and an
output stanza in the analyzer hierarchy for mirroring packets. In remote port mirroring,
the mirrored traffic is flooded into a remote mirroring VLAN that can be specifically
created for the purpose of receiving mirrored traffic. The analyzer configuration is
available at the [edit forwarding-options analyzer] hierarchy level.

Control word feature for LDP VPLS and FEC129 VPLS (MX Series)— Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2R4, the control word feature is supported for LDP VPLS and
FEC129 VPLS.
Management
•
YANG module that defines the Junos OS configuration hierarchy—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2, Juniper Networks provides a YANG module that defines the Junos OS
configuration hierarchy. You can download the YANG module that defines the complete
Junos OS configuration hierarchy for all devices running that Junos OS release from
the Juniper Networks website at http://www.juniper.net/. You can also generate a YANG
module that defines the device-specific configuration hierarchy by using the show
system schema module configuration format yang operational mode command on the
local device. The Juniper Networks YANG module, configuration, is bound to the
namespace URI http://yang.juniper.net/yang/1.1/jc and uses the prefix jc.
[See Understanding YANG on Devices Running Junos OS.]
MPLS
•
On-demand packet loss and delay measurement (MX Series routers with MPCs and
MICs only)—Starting with Release 14.2, Junos OS introduces an on-demand tool to
monitor and measure packet loss, packet delay, or both for associated bidirectional
MPLS ultimate hop popping (UHP) point-to-point label-switched paths (LSPs), using
the monitor mpls loss rsvp, monitor mpls delay rsvp, and monitor mpls loss-delay rsvp
commands, respectively.
These commands provide an on-demand summary of performance metrics for direct
mode packet loss, two-way packet delay, and related metrics, such as inter-packet
delay variation and channel throughput measurement.
This functionality provides real-time visibility into network performance, thereby
facilitating network performance planning, troubleshooting, and evaluation.
•
GMPLS RSVP-TE VLAN LSP signaling (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2, the point-to-point Layer 2 connectivity between two client
routers across an external or third-party server-layer network can be set up by the
client routers on an on-demand basis using GMPLS RSVP-TE signaling. This feature
provides the client routers the flexibility to establish, maintain, and provision each
individual Layer 2 connection, without any dependency on the server-layer
administration. As a result, the burden on the operational expenses of the provider
network, in terms of provisioning individual Layer 2 connections, is reduced.
In traditional Layer 2 VPN technology that is based on LDP and BGP, the provider
network handled the provisioning activity for each Layer 2 circuit established between
two client routers.

New and Changed Features
•
Extension of traceroute over MPLS tunnels—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, a
new command as of Junos OS Release 14.2, traceroute mpls bgp, enables you to perform
end-to-end LSP traceroute by having the transit routers provide information to the
ingress router about the start and ending of new tunnels for the following cases:
•
•
For hierarchical LSPs for the following use cases:
•
LBGP over LDP (traceroute explores all ECMP paths)
•
LBGP over RSVP (traceroute explores all ECMP paths)
•
LDP over RSVP (traceroute explores all ECMP paths)
•
RSVP over BYPASS
For stitched LSP case for LDP stitched to labeled BGP
The mechanism by which this is accomplished is explained in RFC 6424, which extends
RFC 4370. Use traceroute mpls bgp as a debugging tool to locate MPLS BGP forwarding
issues in a network. The traceroute mpls bgp command is supported on all platforms.
[See traceroute mpls bgp.]
•
Dynamic bandwidth management using container LSPs (M Series, MX Series, and
T Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, a new type of LSP, called a container
LSP, is introduced to enable load balancing across multiple point-to-point member
LSPs between the same ingress and egress routers. Each member LSP takes a different
path to the same destination and can be routed along a different IGP cost path.
Based on the configuration and aggregate traffic, a container LSP provides support
for dynamic bandwidth management by enabling the ingress router to dynamically
add and remove member LSPs through a process called LSP splitting and LSP merging
respectively. Member LSPs can also be re-optimized with different bandwidth values
in a make-before-break way.
[See Dynamic Bandwidth Management Using MP-LSP Overview and Example: Configuring
Dynamic Bandwidth Management Using MP-LSP.]
•
Egress peer engineering of service labels (BGP, MPLS) and egress peer protection
for BGP-LU (MX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, you can enable
traffic engineering of service traffic, such as MPLS LSP traffic between autonomous
systems (ASs), using BGP-labeled unicast for optimum utilization of the advertised
egress routes. You can specify one or more backup devices for the primary egress AS
boundary router. Junos OS installs the backup path in addition to the primary path in
the MPLS forwarding table, which enables MPLS fast reroute (FRR) when the primary
link fails.
•
Support of Internet draft draft-ietf-pce-stateful-pce-07 for the stateful PCC
implementation (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—The partial client-side
implementation of the stateful Path Computation Element (PCE) architecture is
currently based on version 2 of Internet draft draft-ietf-pce-stateful-pce. Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2R4, this implementation is upgraded to support version 7, as
defined in Internet draft draft-ietf-pce-stateful-pce-07.
Releases earlier than 14.2R4 support the older version of the PCE draft, causing
interoperability issues between a Path Computation Client (PCC) running a previous

•
Support of Internet draft draft-crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp-03 for the stateful
PCE-initiated LSP implementation (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—In the partial
client-side implementation of the stateful Path Computation Element (PCE)
architecture, the implementation of PCE-controlled LSPs that are dynamically initiated
by a PCE is currently based on version 1 of Internet draft
draft-crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, this
implementation is upgraded to support version 3, as defined in Internet draft
draft-crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp-03.
Releases prior to 14.2R4 support the older version of the PCE draft, causing
interoperability issues between a Path Computation Client (PCC) running a previous
release and a stateful PCE server that adheres to Internet draft
draft-crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp-03.
Multicast
•
BGP link state distribution (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—Starting with Release
14.2, Junos OS introduce a new mechanism to distribute topology information across
multiple areas and autonomous systems (ASs) by extending the BGP protocol to carry
link state information.
Earlier, this information was acquired using an IGP, which has scaling limitations when
it comes to distributing large a database. Using BGP provides a policy-controlled and
scalable means of distributing the multi-area and multi-AS topology information.
This information is used for computing paths for MPLS LSPs spanning multiple domains,
such as inter-area TE LSP, and enables external path computing entities, such as ALTO
and PCE, to acquire network topology.
[See Link State Distribution Using BGP Overview and Example: Configuring GMPLS
RSVP-TE VLAN LSP Signaling.]
•
MLD snooping (MX Series routers with MPCs)—Beginning with Junos OS Release
14.2, support for MLD snooping is available on MX Series routers with MPCs (MPC-1,
MPC-2, MPC-3, and MPC-4). MLD snooping restricts the forwarding of IPv6 multicast
traffic to only those interfaces in a bridge-domain/VPLS that have interested listeners.
The operational commands for mld-snooping, including defaults, behavior, logging,
and tracing, are the same as for IGMP snooping (which provides the same functionality
for IPv4 traffic).
•
Separate multicast snooping domains for different logical systems (MX Series
routers with MPCs and DPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, support for multicast,
PIM, and IGMP snooping is available for named logical systems on MX Series routers
with MPCs and DPCs. Multicast traffic specific to one logical system does not have to
flood the entire bridge domain.
This enhancement extends all the available snooping functionality in the default logical
system (including separate routing tables, routing instances, policies, and interface
configurations) to all of the named logical systems on the router. Likewise, the output
of show commands is restricted to data from the named logical system only. The
84

New and Changed Features
master logical system, however, can view the states of any or all named logical systems
configured on the device.
For service providers, the main benefits of this change are the ability to provide
customers with distinct multicast domains for snooping and the ability to simplify
multicast snooping testing by collapsing multiple routers onto a single device via logical
systems. Multicast snooping per named logical systems also extends to MC-LAG in
logical systems that were introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1.
Multicast snooping in named logical systems does not support unified ISSU. We
recommend that, prior to performing unified ISSU, the provider remove all
IGMP-snooping specific configurations. Graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES)
is not affected by this change. IGMP snooping support for P2MP in VPLS for logical
systems applies where such configurations are already valid.
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Configuring SNMP to match jnxNatObjects values for MS-DPC and MS-MIC (MX
Series)—In Junos OS Release 13.3R7, 14.1R6, and 14.2R4, you can configure the
snmp-value-match-msmic statement at the [edit services service-set service-set-name
nat-options] hierarchy level.
In networks where both MS-DPC and MS-MIC are deployed, you can configure this
statement to ensure that the values for MS-MIC-specific objects in the jnxNatObjects
MIB table match the values for MS-DPC objects. By default, this feature is disabled.
You can use the deactivate services service-set service-set-name nat-options
snmp-value-match-msmic configuration mode command to disable this feature.
•
Logical interfaces summary (MX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.1R2,
a new show command, show interfaces summary, is available to display the status and
statistics on the logical interfaces configured on the device at the Flexible PIC
Concentrator (FPC) level.
[See show interfaces summary.]
•
Enhancements to SNMP statistics operational mode commands (M Series, MX
Series, and T Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can use the show
snmp stats-response-statistics command to view the statistics of SNMP statistics
responses sent from the Packet Forwarding Engine during the MIB II process (mib2d).
In addition, you can use the subagents option in the show snmp statistics command to
view the statistics of the protocol data units (PDUs) and the number of SNMP requests
and responses per subagent. The subagents option also helps you to view the SNMP
statistics received from each subagent per logical system.
[See show snmp stats-response-time and show snmp statistics.]
•
SNMP support for enterprise-specific MVPN MIB (M Series and T Series)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2, Junos OS SNMP supports the enterprise-specific MVPN
MIB. Junos OS SNMP support for MVPN is based on the enterprise-specific extension
of the IETF standard MIBs defined in Internet draft draft-ietf-l3vpn-mvpn-mib-03.txt,
MPLS/BGP Layer 3 VPN Multicast Management Information Base.

Support for RFC 4133, Entity MIB (MX240, MX480, and MX960)—Starting with
Release 14.2, Junos OS supports tables and objects defined in RFC 4133, Entity MIB,
except:
•
entityLogicalGroup table
•
entityNotificationsGroup table
•
entPhysicalMfgDate and entPhysicalUris objects in entityPhysical2Group table

State MIB.
•
Support for RFC 3635, Definitions of Managed Objects for the Ethernet-like Interface
Types (MX Series only)—Starting with Release 14.2, Junos OS supports all objects and
tables defined in RFC 3635, Definitions of Managed Objects for the Ethernet-like Interface
Types, except dot3StatsRateControlAbility and dot3StatsRateControlStatus in
dot3StatsEntry table.
[See Standard SNMP MIBs Supported by Junos OS.]
•
Enhancement to reduce the time taken for performing system commit (M Series,
MX Series, and T Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure
the delta-export statement at the [edit system commit] hierarchy level to reduce the
time taken to commit the configuration changes.
[See commit (system) and delta-export.]
•
SNMP support for the timing feature—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, SNMP
supports the timing feature. Currently, SNMP support is limited to defect and event
notifications through SNMP traps. A new enterprise-specific MIB, Timing Feature
Defect/Event Notification MIB, has been added to monitor the operation of PTP clocks
within the network. The trap notifications are disabled by default. To enable trap
notifications for the timing feature, include the timing-event statement at the [edit
snmp trap-group trap-group object categories] hierarchy level to enable SNMP trap
notifications for timing events and defects.
•
SNMP support for fabric queue depth, WAN queue depth, and fabric counter (MX240,
MX480, MX960, MX2010, and MX2020)—Starting with Release 14.2R3, Junos OS
provides SNMP support for WAN queue depth, fabric queue depth, and fabric counter.
The following SNMP MIB tables include the associated objects:
•
jnxCosQstatTable table
•
jnxCosIngressQstatTable table
•

Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)
•
Support for MEF-36-compliant performance monitoring (MX Series)—Starting in
Release 14.2R5, Junos OS supports performance monitoring that is compliant with
Technical Specification MEF 36. You can enable MEF-36-compliant performance
monitoring by configuring the measurement-interval statement at the [edit protocols
oam ethernet cfm performance-monitoring] or [edit protocols oam ethernet cfm
performance-monitoring sla-iterator-profiles profile-name] hierarchy level.
NOTE: When MEF-36-compliant performance monitoring is enabled, an
SNMP get next request for a variable might not fetch the current value
unless an SNMP walk is performed before performing the get next request.
This limitation applies only to the current statistics for delay measurement,
loss measurement, and synthetic loss measurement.
When MEF-36-compliant performance monitoring is enabled:
•
The output for the field Current delay measurement statistics might display a
measurement interval of 0 (zero) and an incorrect timestamp until the first cycle
time has expired.
•
Supported data TLV size for performance monitoring protocol data units (PDUs) is
1386 bytes when MEF-36-compliant performance monitoring is enabled. The TLV
size is 1400 bytes in legacy mode.
•
The maximum configurable value for the lower threshold bin is 4,294,967,294.
•
Frame loss ratio (FLR) is excluded in loss measurements during period of
unavailability for synthetic loss measurement only. In case of loss measurement,
FLR is included even during period of unavailability.
•
During a period of loss of continuity (adjacency down), although SOAM PDUs are
not sent, FLR and availability calculations are not stopped. These calculations are
performed with the assumption of 100% loss.
•
The number of SOAM PDUs that are sent during the first measurement interval might
be less than expected. This is because of a delay in detecting the adjacency state

Loopback tracking for IEEE 802.3ah OAM link-fault management (MX
Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, MX Series routers support loopback tracking
for the Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Management (OAM) link-fault
management process (lfmd). When loopback tracking is enabled and the Ethernet
OAM lfmd process detects its own generated packets on an interface, it marks the
interface as down. When the loopback issue resolves, the interface is brought back up.
To enable loopback tracking for Ethernet OAM, include the loopback-tracking statement
at the [edit protocols oam ethernet link-fault-management interface] hierarchy level.

•
Ethernet loss measurement counter support for each class in a multiclass
environment—Junos OS supports Ethernet loss measurement (ETH-LM) for multiclass
services. The ETH-LM feature is used by operators to collect frame loss counter values
for ingress and egress service frames. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, the
ETH-LM feature is extended to support the frame loss measurement counters for each
class of packets in a multiclass environment. Counters for each class of packets are
supported for point-to-point services only.
NOTE: ETH-LM is currently supported for VPWS services only.
ETH-LM maintains counters based on the forwarding class and loss priority of a packet.
The loss priority determines the color of a packet—green indicates loss priority low for
committed information rate (CIR) and yellow indicates loss priority medium-high for
excess information rate (EIR). The color (green and yellow) counters are maintained
for each class of packets. Based on the counters supported on an interface, you can
configure the following accounting modes for Ethernet loss measurement:
•
Forwarding class-based accounting with color—In this mode, traffic is serviced based
on packet loss priority and forwarding class. Two counters–green and yellow–are
maintained for each forwarding class on each service interface. In this mode, an OAM
(operation, accounting, and maintenance) packet collects counters based on the
forwarding class.
To configure this mode of loss measurement accounting, use the
enable-multiclass-loss-measurement statement at the [set protocols oam ethernet
connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring] hierarchy level for global
configuration or at the [set protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management
performance-monitoring interface interface-name] hierarchy level for interface-level
configuration.
•
Forwarding class-based accounting without color—In this mode, traffic is serviced
based on the forwarding class only. Only one counter is maintained for each
forwarding class in each service interface.
To configure this mode of loss measurement accounting, use the
enable-multiclass-loss-measurement and colorless-loss-measurement statements
at the [set protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management
performance-monitoring] hierarchy level for global configuration or at the [set

protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring
interface interface-name] hierarchy level for interface-level configuration.
•
Color-based accounting—In this mode, traffic is serviced based on the loss priority.
Two counters—green and yellow—are maintained for each service interface.
Color-based accounting is the default loss measurement mode and requires no
configuration.
•
Code point-based accounting—In this mode, traffic is serviced based on the 802.1p
priority bits. One counter is maintained for each code point (priority bit) on each
service interface. If there are user virtual LAN or 802.1p rewrite rules configured, loss
measurement accounting is done before applying the rewrite rules.
To configure this mode, use the code-point-based-lm-accounting statement at the
[set protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring]
hierarchy level for global configuration or at the [set protocols oam ethernet
connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring interface interface-name]
hierarchy level for interface-level configuration.
NOTE: Code point-based accounting mode does not work if virtual LAN
pop or push is configured on the interface. If pop or push is configured,
the 802.1p bits are removed from the data packets. Therefore, in such
cases, you can use forwarding class-based accounting if a one-to-one
mapping exists between a forwarding class and the 802.1p bits value;
otherwise you can use the priority-based accounting mode.
•
Priority-based accounting—In this mode, four counters are maintained for each
forwarding class for each interface, with each counter corresponding to one of the
two colors. To configure this mode, use the priority-based-lm-accounting statement
at the [set protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management
performance-monitoring] hierarchy level for global configuration or at the [set
protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring
interface interface-name] hierarchy level for interface-level configuration.
Routing Policy and Firewall Filters
•
New flexible offset firewall filter terms (MX Series routers with MPCs or MICs)—In
Junos OS releases earlier than Release 14.2, you configured firewall filter terms using
the CLI only on pre-defined or fixed offsets within the IP packet, such as source address,
destination port, and so on. Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, new flexible offset firewall
filter terms are available. These flexible offset filter terms allow a user to begin the
search for match conditions at Layer 2, Layer 3, Layer 4, or payload locations within
the IP packet and to vary the match parameters within those locations.
[See Firewall Filter Match Conditions for IPv6 Traffic].
•
New firewall family bridge match criteria for IPv6 (MX Series routers with MPCs or
MICs)—For IPv4 traffic, the following header match criteria are supported in bridge
filters: IP source address, IP destination address, protocol type, and DiffServ code point
(DSCP). Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the same match criteria have been added
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
to the [firewall family bridge filter filter-name term rule-name from] hierarchy for the
matching of IPv6 fields in firewall bridge filters. In addition, the IPv6 next-header and
payload-protocol fields can be matched.
[See Firewall Filter Match Conditions for IPv6 Traffic.]

•
New walkup statement available (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2, a new walkup feature is available. The walkup feature allows
the user to change the default route filter prefix match behavior, so that the evaluation
walks up multiple route filters contained within a single policy term, in order to allow
matches on terms other than the default longest match. This can be applied globally
or locally to a single policy. This feature can be configured in the main routing instance
and in logical systems, but not in routing instances.
•
Support for consistent load balancing for ECMP groups (MX Series routers with
MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, on MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers
with Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) only, you can prevent the reordering of flows
to active paths in an ECMP group when one or more paths fail. Only flows that are
inactive are redirected. This feature applies only to Layer 3 adjacencies learned through
external BGP connections. It overrides the default behavior of disrupting all existing,
including active, TCP connections when an active path fails. Include the consistent-hash
statement at the [edit policy-options policy-statement policy-statement-name then
load-balance] hierarchy level. You must also configure a global per-packet
load-balancing policy.
•
Support for logical queue-depth in the PFE for IP options packets for a given protocol
(M Series, MX Series, and T Series)— Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6, you can
configure logical queue-depth in the PFE for IP options packets for a given protocol.
The queue-depth indicates the number of IP options packets which can be enqueued
in the PFE logical queue, beyond which it would start dropping the packets.

Routing Protocols
•
Virtual route reflector using 64-bit routing processes (MX Series)—Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2, many of the applications running on Junos OS can be shifted
to external and more robust, powerful computing resources, thereby preserving the
hardware resources on devices running Junos OS for switching and routing
functionalities. Among the protocols and modules that can be transferred to external
computing utilities, control plane protocols are suited for such an offloading. Such a
virtualized process can be run on more powerful blade servers, and the computed
entities can be downloaded to the router or the switch. With such an approach, the
scaling dimensions for each of the virtualized processes can be increased to a large
level.
Out of the various processes that run within rpd, route reflector is an operation that
requires a considerable amount of computing power (both with memory utilization
and computation overhead). Such a virtualized module, virtual route reflector, can be
run on external servers to achieve more scaling numbers. The virtualization of such
functional blocks enables the service to be run on external high-performance servers.
To enable this capability of a virtual route reflector, the entire Junos OS is virtualized
and launched as a VM (virtual machine). To achieve higher and effective scaling
numbers, rpd is configured as a 64-bit application, which benefits from a much better
address space. The 64-bit capacity of rpd requires the kernel to also be of 64-bit type.
The purpose of route reflection is loop prevention when the internal BGP (IBGP) routing
devices are not fully meshed. To accomplish this, RRs break one of the rules of normal
BGP operation: They readvertise routes learned from an internal BGP peer to other
internal BGP peers. A new Junos OS platform image called vrr64 is provided. You can
use the jinstall64-vrr package to install the 64-bit virtual route reflector on your device.
Raw disk image format is supported for the VRR image. The new Junos OS platform
image is converted to kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) or a Quick Emulator (QEMU)
disk image, which is launched as a VM on the QEMU hardware virtualizer.
•
BGP-static routes (MX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can
configure and advertise BGP-static routes in a BGP network. You can advertise a
BGP-static route in a BGP network, even if it is not the active route for the prefix.
BGP-static routes do not flap unless they are deleted manually. You can define a policy
that determines which BGP-static routes need to be advertised and included in the
advertisements. Peer routers receive advertisements for these BGP-static routes
regardless of dynamic routing information learned by the advertising router.
To configure BGP-static routes, include the bgp-static route statement at the [edit
routing-options] hierarchy level.
[See BGP-Static Routes in a BGP Network.]
•
Remote LFA support for LDP in IS-IS (MX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release
14.2, you can configure a remote loop-free alternate (LFA) to extend the backup
provided by the LFA in an IS-IS network. This feature is useful especially for Layer 1
metro-rings where the remote LFA is not directly connected to the PLR. The existing
LDP implemented for the MPLS tunnel setup can be reused for the protection of IS-IS
networks and subsequent LDP destinations, thereby eliminating the need for RSVP-TE
backup tunnels for backup coverage.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
91
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
To configure remote LFA over LDP tunnels, include the remote-backup-calculation
statement at the [edit protocols isis backup-spf-options] hierarchy level and the
auto-targeted-session statement at the [edit protocols ldp] hierarchy level.
[See Example: Configuring Remote LFA over LDP Tunnels in IS-IS Networks.]
•
OSPF domain-id interoperability (MX Series)— Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R4,
to enable interoperability with routers from other vendors, you can set the AS number
for domain-id attributes to 0 at the following hierarchical levels:
[edit routing-instances routing-instance name protocols ospf domain-id]
or
[edit policy-options community community name members]
CAUTION: Do not downgrade Junos OS after configuring the AS number
for domain-id attributes to 0. Set the AS number to a nonzero value and
commit the configuration before downgrading Junos OS.
•
Flow-aware transport pseudowire for BGP L2VPN and BGP VPLS (MX Series)—
Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R7, the flow-aware transport (FAT) label is
supported for BGP-signaled pseudowires such as L2VPN and VPLS. Configuring
flow-label-receive and flow-label-trasmit on the label edge routers (LERs) enables the
transit routers or label-switching routers (LSRs) to perform load balancing of MPLS
packets across equal-cost multipath (ECMP) paths or link aggregation groups (LAGs)
without the need for deep packet inspection of the payload.
•
OSPFv3-TTL propagation policy for TE-Shortcuts and FA-LSPs in-line with other
modules in the system (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R4, the
OSPFv3-TTL propagation policy will be dictated by MPLS-TTL propagation policy
which, by default, allows propagation of TTL.
This change makes behavior of OSPFV3 in-line with the default behavior of rest of the
system, allowing you to disable TTL propagation for the above mentioned LSPs and
for traffic-engineering-shortcuts (TE-Shortcuts) and forwarding adjacency LSPs
(FA-LSPs) using OSPFv3 as IGP, by configuring the no-propagate-ttl statement at the
[edit protocols mpls] hierarchy.

Services Applications
•
Support for interim logging for NAT port block allocation (MX Series routers with
MS-MPCs/MS-MICs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, you can configure interim
logging for NAT with port translation on MX Series routers with MS-MPCs or MS-MICs.
Default logging sends a single log entry for ports allocated to a subscriber. These syslog
entries can be lost for long running flows. Interim logging triggers the re-sending of logs
at configured time intervals for active blocks that have traffic on at least one of the
ports of the block, ensuring that there is a recent syslog entry for active blocks. You
can specify interim logging by including the pba-interim-logging-interval statement at
the [edit interfaces interface-name services-options] hierarchy level.
•
Support for transmission of probes between a TWAMP client and a TWAMP server
(MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, you can configure an MX Series
router that contains a Packet Forwarding Engine with 16-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MPCs,
FPCs (MPCs), MPC3Es, or MPC4Es to function as a Two-Way Active Measurement
Protocol (TWAMP) client. A TWAMP client is a device that sends probe or test packets
and functions as the generator or initiator of the probes. A TWAMP server is a device
that receives the probes from the client and functions as the reflector or the receiver.
A client opens a TCP connection with the server on a well-known port, which is port
number 862. The host that initiates the TCP connection takes the roles of the
control-client and (in the two-host implementation) the session-sender. Such a device
is also called the TWAMP client. The host that acknowledges the TCP connection
accepts the roles of a server and (in the two-host implementation) the session-reflector.
Such a device is also called the TWAMP server.
•
Support for logging flow monitoring records with version 9 and IPFIX templates for
NAT events (MX Series routers with MS-MPCs and MS-MICs)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2R2, you can configure MX Series routers with MS-MPCs and MS-MICs to
log network address translation (NAT) events using Junos Traffic Vision (previously
known as J-flow) version 9 or IPFIX (version 10) template format. NAT event logger
generates messages in flow monitoring format for various NAT events, such as the
creation of a NAT entry, deletion of a NAT entry, and for invalid NAT processing (such
as NAT address pools or address values being exhausted for allocation). These events
also support NAT64 translations (translation of IPv6 addresses to IPv4 addresses),
binding information base (BIB) events, and more detailed error generation. The
generated records or logs for NAT events in flow template format are sent to the
specified host or external device that functions as the NetFlow collector. Until Junos
OS Release 14.2R1, MS-PIC uses the system logging protocol (syslog) to generate
session logging. System log messages can be sent directly from the MS-PIC to an
external system-logging server. For this transmission of syslogs to work properly, the
services PIC interface must have an IP address and appropriate system logging options
configured.
•
IPsec invalid SPI notification (M Series, MX Series, and T Series)—Starting in Junos
OS Release 14.2, you can enable automatic recovery when peers in a security association
(SA) become unsynchronized. When peers become unsynchronized, this can cause
the transmission of packets with invalid security parameter index (SPI) values and the
dropping of those packets by the receiving peer. You can enable automatic recovery
by using the new respond-bad-spi max-responses configuration statement, which
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
93
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
appears under the [edit services ipsec-vpn ike policy] hierarchy level. This statement
results in a resynchronization of the SAs.
The max-responses value has a default of 5 and a range of 1 through 30.
[See Configuring IKE Policies.]
•
IPv6 support for aggregated multiservices (AMS) interfaces (MX Series with
MS-MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can use AMS interfaces for IPv6
traffic. To configure IPv6 support for an AMS interface, include the family inet6
statement at the [edit interfaces ams-interface-name unit unit-number] hierarchy level.
NOTE: When family inet and family inet6 are set for an AMS interface
sub-unit, the hash-keys set at the [edit services service-set-name
load-balancing-options] hierarchy level apply both to IPv4 and IPv6 flows.
94
•
ICMP, ping, and traceroute ALGs for MS-MICs and MS-MPCs (MX Series)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.2, Junos OS extension-provider packages that are preinstalled
and preconfigured on the MS-MIC and MS-MPC offer support for ping, traceroute, and
ICMP ALGs in a consistent manner that is identical to the support that the uKernel
service provides. Parity and uniformity of support is established for these ALGs between
MS-MICs/MS-MPCs and the uKernel service. Until Junos OS Release 14.1, ICMP ALGs,
ping ALGs, and traceroute ALGs were not entirely supported on MX Series routers with
MS-MICs and MS-MPCs in comparison with the uKernel service that enables Network
Address Translation (NAT) with stateful firewall (SFW) on the uKernel PIC. Support
was available for handling of ICMP error response packets that match any existing
flow in the opposite direction and NAT processing of ICMP packets with NAT processing
of ping packets.
•
Support for IP reassembly on GRE tunnel interfaces for (MX Series routers with
MPCs)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure the generic routing
encapsulation (GRE) tunnel interfaces on MX Series routers with MPCs to support IP
packet reassembly. You can configure the GRE interfaces to reassemble the fragmented
packets at the endpoint of the tunnel before they can be further processed on the
network by including the reassemble-packets statement at the [edit interfaces
gr-fpc/pic/port unit logical-unit-number] hierarchy level. You can view the reassembly
statistics by using the show services inline ip-reassembly statistics <fpc fpc-slot | pfe
pfe-slot> command. Inline IP reassembly is supported on MX80, MX240, MX480,
MX960, MX2010, MX2020, and MX104 routers. The line modules compatible with the
corresponding MX Series routers that support the reassembly of GRE packets are MPC1,
MPC2, MPC3, MPC4, and MPC-16X10GE. Until Junos OS Release 14.1, reassembly of IP
fragments received at GRE tunnels is supported only on MX Series routers with
MS-DPCs.
•
Enhancements to the RFC 2544-based benchmarking tests (MX104)—RFC 2544
tests are performed by transmitting test packets from a device that functions as a
generator. These packets are sent to a device that functions as a reflector. The reflector
receives and reflects packets back to the generator. MX104 routers can be configured
as reflectors. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, MX104 routers support RFC
2544-based benchmarking tests for Ethernet transparent LAN (E-LAN) services
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
configured using bridge domains. The RFC 2544 tests are performed to measure and
demonstrate the service-level agreement (SLA) parameters before activation of the
service. The tests measure throughput, latency, frame loss rate, and back-to-back
frames. RFC 2544 performance measurement testing for Layer 2 E-LAN services on
MX104 routers supports user-to-network interface (UNI)-to-UNI unicast traffic only.
•
Support for PCP version 2 (MX Series)—Starting in Release 14.2R3, Junos OS supports
Port Control Protocol (PCP) version 2, defined by IETF RFC 6887. PCP version 2 uses
the client once for authentication. Junos OS is able to decode and process version 2
and version 1 messages. There are no CLI changes for PCP version 2 support.
•
Support for RPM probes with IPv6 sources and destinations (MX Series routers with
MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R3, the RPM client router (the router or switch
that originates the RPM probes) can send probe packets to the RPM probe server (the
device that receives the RPM probes) that contains an IPv6 address. To specify the
destination IPv6 address used for the probes, include the target (url ipv6-url | address
ipv6-address) statement at the [edit services rpm probe owner test test-name] hierarchy
level. You can also define the RPM client or the source that sents RPM probes to contain
an IPv6 address. To specify the IPv6 protocol-related settings and the source IPv6
address of the client from which the RPM probes are sent, include the inet6-options
source-address ipv6-address statement at the [edit services rpm probe owner test
test-name] hierarchy level.
•
Support for H.323 NAT on MS-MPC and MS-MIC (MX Series routers)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2R7, the H.323 ALG is supported in NAPT-44 rules and IPv4
stateful-firewall rules on the MX Series. H.323 is a legacy VoIP protocol.
To configure H.323 in a NAPT-44 rule, include the application-sets junos-h323-suite
statement at the [edit services nat rule rule-name term term-name from] hierarchy level.
To configure H.323 in a stateful-firewall rule, include the application-sets
junos-h323-suite statement at the [edit services stateful-firewall rule rule-name term
term-name from] hierarchy level.
To show H.323 ALG statistics, issue the show services alg statistics application-protocol
h323 command.
•
Support for AMS warm standby on MS-MPC and MS-MIC (MX Series
routers)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R7, one service interface can be the backup
interface for multiple service interfaces. This feature is called AMS warm standby. To
make a service interface the backup for multiple service interfaces, you configure an
AMS interface for each service interface you want to protect. Each of these AMS
interfaces has two member interfaces—a primary member interface, which is the
service interface you want to protect, and the secondary member interface, which is
the backup service interface. You can use the same secondary member interface in
multiple AMS interfaces.
To configure a warm-standby AMS interface, include the primary mams-a/b/0
statement and the secondary mams-a/b/0 statement at the [edit interfaces amsn
redundancy-options] hierarchy level.
If you use redundancy-options in an AMS interface, you cannot use
load-balancing-options in the same AMS interface.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
95
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
You cannot use the same member interface in both an AMS interface that includes
load-balancing-options and an AMS interface that includes redundancy-options.
To show the state of an AMS interface configured with warm standby, issue the show
interfaces redundancy command.
To switch from the primary interface to the secondary interface, issue the request
interface switchover amsn command.
To revert to the primary interface from the secondary interface, issue the request
interface revert amsn command.
•
NAT with deterministic IP address and port mapping—Starting in Junos OS Release
14.2R7, you can configure deterministic NAT mapping for NAPT44. Deterministic NAT
mapping ensures that a given internal IP address and port are always mapped to the
same external IP address and port, and the reverse mapping of a given translated
external IP address and port are always mapped to the same internal IP address.
Deterministic NAT mapping eliminates the need for logging address translations.
Configure deterministic NAT translation in a NAT rule by including the translation-type
deterministic-napt44 statement at the [edit services nat rule rule-name term term-name
then translated] hierarchy level.
Configure the range low value to be at least 1024 and the range high value to be no
more than 65,535 at the [edit services nat pool pool-name port] hierarchy level. If you
configure any ports below 1024, they are readjusted.
You can configure up to 64,512 ports to make available for each internal subscriber
with the deterministic-port-block-allocation block-size block-size statement at the [edit
services nat pool pool-name port] hierarchy level. If you do not include this statement,
the default value is 512. If you configure the block-size as 0, Junos OS automatically
calculates the block size by using the number of configured subscriber IP addresses,
the number of external translated IP addresses, and the port range.
•
Support for IKE and IPsec Passthrough NAPT-44 and NAT64 (MX Series routers
with MS-MPCs and MS-MICs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R7, you can enable
the passing of IKE and IPsec packets through NAPT-44 and NAT64 filters between
IPsec peers that are not NAT-T compliant by using the
IKE-ESP-TUNNEL-MODE-NAT-ALG on MS-MPCs and MS-MICs.
Use the following hierarchy to enable the IKE-ESP-TUNNEL-MODE-NAT-ALG:

Class-of-service (CoS) marking and reclassification for the MS-MICs and
MS-MPCs—Starting with Junos Release 14.2R7, the MS-MIC and MS-MPC support CoS
configuration, which enables you to configure Differentiated Services code point (DSCP)
marking and forwarding-class assignment for packets transiting the MS-MIC or
MS-MPC. You can configure the CoS service alongside the stateful firewall and NAT
services, using a similar rule structure.
[See Configuring CoS Rules.]
Software-Defined Networking (SDN)
•
Support for OpenFlow v1.3.1 (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, MX
Series routers support OpenFlow v1.3.1. In addition to the OpenFlow v1.0 functionality
that is already supported on MX Series routers, OpenFlow v1.3.1 allows the action
specified in one or more flow entries to direct packets to a base action called a group.
The purpose of the group action is to further process these packets and assign a more
specific forwarding action to them. You can view groups that were added, modified,
or deleted from the group table by the OpenFlow controller using the show openflow
groups command. You can view group statistics using the show openflow statistics
groups command.
[See Understanding How the OpenFlow Group Action Works.]
•
OVSDB support (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the Junos OS
implementation of the Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) management protocol
provides a means through which VMware NSX controllers and MX Series routers that
support OVSDB can communicate. In an NSX multi-hypervisor environment, NSX
controllers and MX Series routers can exchange control and statistical information,
thereby enabling virtual machine (VM) traffic from entities in a virtual network to be
forwarded to entities in a physical network and the reverse.

routers is version 1.3.0. In addition, the schema now supports the multicast MACs local
table.
[See Open vSwitch Database Schema For Physical Devices.]
•
Destination MAC address rewrites for OpenFlow (MX80, MX240, MX480, and
MX960)—Some types of network equipment that function as routers accept and
handle packets only if the destination MAC address in the packet is the same as the
MAC address of the Layer 3 interface on which the packet is received. To interoperate
with these routers, connected devices must also be able to rewrite the destination
MAC address of an incoming packet. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6, an
OpenFlow controller can configure an MX Series router that supports OpenFlow to
rewrite the destination MAC address of an incoming packet.
[See Understanding How the OpenFlow Destination MAC Address Rewrite Action Works.]
Software Installation and Upgrade
•
Validate system software against running configuration on remote host—Beginning
with Junos OS Release 14.2R5, you can use the on (host host <username username> |
routing-engine routing-engine) option with the request system software validate
package-name command to verify candidate system software against the running
configuration on the specified remote host or Routing Engine.
•
Validate system software add against running configuration on remote host or
routing engine—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R5, you can use the
validate-on-host hostname and validate-on-routing-engine routing-engine options with
the request system software add package-name command to verify a candidate software
bundle against the running configuration on the specified remote host or Routing
Engine.
Subscriber Management and Services
NOTE: Subscriber management is not supported in Release 14.2R6.

New and Changed Features
•
Excluding diameter AVPs from JSRC messages (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2, you can configure the router to exclude the Diameter user-name (1) AVP
from authorization requests and provision requests sent to the SAE (remote SRC peer).
[See Excluding AVPs from Diameter Messages for JSRC.]
•
Support for PPPoE-Description VSA (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2,
you can use Juniper Networks VSA 26-24 (PPPoE Description) when using RADIUS to
authenticate subscribers based on the client MAC address.
[See Juniper Networks VSAs Supported by the AAA Service Framework.]
•
DHCP relay agent for clients in different VRF than DHCP server (MX Series)—Starting
in Junos OS Release 14.2, subscriber management provides enhanced security when
exchanging DHCP messages between a DHCP server and DHCP clients that reside in
different virtual routing instances (VRFs). The DHCP cross-VRF message exchange
uses the DHCP relay agent to ensure that there is no direct routing between the client
VRF and the DHCP server VRF.
To exchange DHCP messages between the two VRFs, you configure both the server
side and the client side of the DHCP relay to permit traffic based on the Agent Circuit
ID (DHCP option 82 suboption 1) in DHCPv4 packets and the Relay Agent Interface-ID
(DHCPv6 option 18) in DHCPv6 packets.
[See DHCP Message Exchange Between DHCP Clients and DHCP Server in Different VRFs.]
•
ANCP agent adjustment of downstream data rate and overhead for SDSL, VDSL,
and VDSL2 subscriber lines (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can
configure the ANCP agent to provide two independent, adjusted values to CoS for
downstream subscriber traffic on frame mode DSL types (SDSL, VDSL, and VDSL2),
enabling CoS to more accurately adjust the effective shaping rate for the downstream
subscriber traffic. You can specify a percentage value that is applied to the actual,
unadjusted data rate received in ANCP Port Up messages. You can also specify a
number of bytes that is added to or subtracted from the frame overhead for the traffic.
[See Configuring the ANCP Agent to Report Traffic Rates to CoS.]
•
Concurrent support for PPPoE-over-ATM and IPoE-over-ATM subscriber interfaces
on a single ATM PVC (MX Series with MPCs and ATM MICs with SFP)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2 for MX Series routers with ATM MICs with SFP installed, you
can configure subscriber interfaces for both PPP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM
(PPPoE-over-ATM) and IP-over-Ethernet-over-ATM (IPoE-over-ATM) concurrently
on a single ATM PVC. The concurrent PPPoE-over-ATM and IPoE-over-ATM
configuration supports all features specific to PPPoE-over-ATM interfaces and
IPoE-over ATM interfaces, with no changes.
To configure concurrent PPPoE-over-ATM and IPoE-over-ATM subscriber interfaces
on a single ATM PVC, you configure the ATM logical interface as an IPoE-over-ATM
interface by specifying the ether-over-atm-llc encapsulation type. You then use the
family pppoe stanza at the [edit interfaces at-fpc/pic/port unit logical-unit-number]
hierarchy level to configure PPPoE-over-ATM as a supported family. When the router
detects the family pppoe stanza and the IPoE-over-ATM encapsulation, it identifies
the configuration as concurrently supporting both PPPoE-over-ATM and IPoE-over-ATM
on the ATM PVC.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
[See Configuring Concurrent PPPoE-over-ATM and IPoE-over-ATM Subscriber Interfaces
on an ATM PVC.]
•
Configuration support to change the maximum transmission unit size and maximum
receive unit size for PPP subscriber access—To prevent frequent fragmentation and
reassembly of Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) packets, starting in Junos OS Release
14.2, you can configure the PPP maximum transmission unit (MTU) size and the
maximum receive unit (MRU) size that is sent during link control protocol (LCP)
negotiation for the following PPP subscribers:
•
PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) subscribers
•
PPP over Ethernet over ATM (PPPoE over ATM) subscribers
•
PPP over ATM (PPPoA) subscribers
•
Tunneled PPP LAC subscribers
•
Tunneled PPP LNS subscribers
To configure the MTU size for each of the PPP subscribers, include the mtu (size |
use-lower-layer) statement, and to configure the MRU size, include the mru size
statement at the following hierarchy levels:
•
For dynamic and static PPP LNS subscribers associated with a group profile—[edit
access group-profile group-profile-name ppp ppp-options]
•
For dynamic PPP subscribers—[edit dynamic-profiles profile-name interfaces pp0
unit “$junos-interface-unit” ppp-options]
•
For dynamic LNS subscribers—[edit dynamic-profiles profile-name interfaces
"$junos-interface-ifd-name" unit “$junos-interface-unit” ppp-options]
•
•
For static PPP subscribers—[edit interfaces pp0 unit unit-number ppp-options]
•
For static LNS subscribers—[edit interfaces si interface-id unit unit-number ppp-options]
Support for IP reassembly on an L2TP connection (MX Series routers with MPC3E
and MPC4E)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure the service interfaces
on MX Series routers with MPC3E and MPC4E to support IP packet reassembly on a
Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) connection. The IP packet is fragmented over an
L2TP connection when the packet size exceeds the maximum transmission unit (MTU)
defined for the connection. Depending on the direction of the traffic flow, the
fragmentation can occur either at the L2TP access concentrator (LAC) or at the L2TP
network server (LNS) and reassembly occurs at the peer interface. (In an L2TP
connection, a LAC is a peer interface for the LNS and vice versa).
You can configure the service interfaces on the LAC or on the LNS to reassemble the
fragmented packets before they can be further processed on the network. On a router
running Junos OS, a service set is used to define the reassembly rules on the service
interface. The service set is then assigned to the L2TP service at the [edit services l2tp]
hierarchy level to configure IP reassembly for L2TP fragments.
You can view the reassembly statistics by using the show services inline ip-reassembly
statistics <fpc fpc-slot | pfe pfe-slot> command.
[See IP Packet Fragment Reassembly for L2TP Overview.]

New and Changed Features
•
Global support for LAC forwarding of subscriber line information (MX
Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure the LAC to forward
subscriber line information and optionally to include the Connection Speed Update
Enable AVP (98) for all destinations with the access-line-information statement at
the [edit services l2tp] hierarchy level. In earlier releases, you can configure this only
on a per-destination basis. Both the global and per-destination configurations are
disabled by default.
The global and per-destination settings interact in the following way:
•
Access line information—You can enable forwarding at the global or per-destination
level. When forwarding is enabled globally, you cannot disable the global setting for
a specific destination.
•
Connection speed updates—You can enable updates at the global or per-destination
level. You can disable the global setting for a specific destination by specifying
access-line-information for the destination and omitting connection-speed-update.
[See Subscriber Access Line Information Forwarding by the LAC Overview.]
•
Support for up to 256 L2TP tunnel groups (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release
14.2R5, you can configure and commit up to 256 tunnel groups. In earlier releases, the
CLI prevents you from committing the configuration when you create more than 32
groups.
System Management
•
Statement introduced to deny hidden commands—Starting in Release 14.2R4, Junos
OS allows users to deny hidden commands to all users except root. To deny hidden
commands to all users except root, use the set system no-hidden-commands statement
at the edit hierarchy level.
User Interface and Configuration
•
Support for allowing commands in a Junos OS op script (M Series, MX Series, and
T Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can specify a regular expression
that defines which commands to explicitly allow during execution of a Junos OS op
script. The commands that you specify are performed even if a user login class denies
that command. The permission to perform commands within a script applies to all
users.
[See Defining Commands to Allow in an Op Script.]
VPNs
•
Virtual route reflector (VRR)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, you can implement
route reflector capability using a general-purpose virtual machine on a 64-bit
Intel-based blade server or appliance. Benefits of the VRR are:
•
Improved scalability (depending on the server core hardware use)
•
Scalability of the BGP network with lower cost using VRR at multiple locations in
the network

•
•
Fast and more flexible deployment using Intel servers rather than router hardware
•
Space savings through elimination of router hardware
VRF localization (MX Series with MPCs)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, VRF
localization provides a mechanism for localizing routes of VRF to specific line cards to
help maximize the number of routes that a router can handle. CE-facing interfaces
localize all the routes of instance type VRF to specific line cards. If CE-facing interfaces
are logical interfaces like AE or RLSQ or IRB, then the line card number has to be
configured to localize routes. Core-facing line cards store all the VRF routes. These
cards have to be configured as VPN core-facing only or VPN core-facing default. To
configure VRF localization, configure the localized-fib configuration statement at the
[edit routing-instances instance-name routing-options] hierarchy level and configure
vpn-localization at the [edit chassis fpc fpc-slot] hierarchy level. The show route
vpn-localization command displays the localization information of all the VRFs in the
system.
[See Example: Configuring VRF Localization on MX Series.]
•
Loop prevention in VPLS network due to MAC moves (MX Series)—Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2, the base learning interface approach and the statistical approach
can be used to prevent a loop in a VPLS network by disabling the suspect
customer-facing interface that is connected to the loop. Some virtual MACs can
genuinely move between different interfaces and such MACs can be configured to
ignore the moves. The cooloff time and statistical approach wait time are used internally
to find out the looped interface. The interface recovery time can be configured to
auto-enable the interface that gets disabled due to a loop in the network. To configure
these parameters of VPLS MAC moves, include the vpls-mac-move statement at the
[edit protocols l2-learning] hierarchy level. The show vpls mac-move-action instance
instance-name command displays the learning interfaces that are disabled, in a VPLS
instance due to a MAC move. The clear vpls mac-move-action interface ifl-name
command enables an interface disabled due to a MAC move.
[See Example: Configuring Loop Prevention in VPLS Network Due to MAC Moves.]
•
Integrating EVPN with VXLAN for Layer 2 data center interconnect (MX Series with
MPCs and MICs only)—Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) is a technology
that provides intra data center connectivity using a tunneling scheme to stretch Layer
2 connections over an intervening Layer 3 network.
The Ethernet VPN (EVPN) technology, on the other hand, provides a solution for
multipoint Layer 2 VPN services with advanced multihoming capabilities, using BGP
control plane over MPLS/IP network.
EVPN provides mechanisms for next generation DCI by adding extended control plane
procedures to exchange Layer 2 MAC address and Layer 3 IP address information
among the participating Data Center Border Routers (DCBRs). EVPN with its advanced
features like active-active redundancy, aliasing, and mass MAC withdrawal helps in
addressing the DCI challenges, such as seamless VM mobility and optimal IP routing,
thus making it essential to provide VXLAN solutions over EVPN.
•

Documentation
DPCs provide support for EVPN in the active-standby mode of operation including
support for the following:
•
EVPN instance (EVI)
•
Virtual switch (VS)
•
Integrated routing and bridging (IRB) interfaces
DPCs intended for providing the EVPN active-standby support should be the customer
edge (CE) device-facing line card. The provider edge (PE) device interfaces in the
EVPN domain should use only MPC and MIC interfaces.
•
Overlay ping and traceroute functionality for VXLAN tunnels (MX Series)—Starting
in Junos OS Release 14.2R4, two new CLI commands supporting ping and traceroute
troubleshooting functionality are provided to debug VXLAN overlay tunnels: ping overlay
vni vni-id tunnel-src ip-address-src tunnel-dst ip-address-dst and traceroute overlay vni
vni-id tunnel-src ip-address-src tunnel-dst ip-address-dst. Use the ping overlay and
traceroute overlay commands to validate and verify the presence of the VXLAN tunnel
endpoints within the context of the overlay VXLAN Network Identifier or VXLAN
Segment ID (VNI) segment.
•
EVPN with VXLAN data plane encapsulation (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2R4, MX Series routers can use EVPN with VXLAN encapsulation to provide
Layer 2 connectivity for end stations within a Virtualized Network (VN) created by the
Contrail virtualization software. The end stations consist of virtual hosts connected to
the virtualized server, and non-virtualized bare metal servers connected to top-of-rack
platforms. MX Series routers also function as default gateways for the inter-VN traffic
among end stations that belong to different VNs. EVPN is used as a Layer 2 overlay
solution to provide Layer 2 connections over the IP underlay for the endpoints within
a VN whenever Layer 2 connectivity is required by an end station.
•
IPv6 support over IRB interfaces for EVPN (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release
14.2R5, the Ethernet VPN (EVPN ) integrated routing and bridging (IRB) solution
supports IPv6 and the Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NDP). NDP is used by IPv6
nodes on the same link to discover each other’s presence, determine each other’s Link
Layer addresses, find routers, and maintain reachability information about the paths
to active neighbors. IPv6 addresses over IRB for EVPN is supported for unique VLAN
EVPN instances and for virtual switches with protocol EVPN instances.

Enhanced show virtual-chassis heartbeat command (MX Series with MPCs)—Starting
in Junos OS Release 14.2, a new state, Detected, has been added to the show
virtual-chassis heartbeat command display output. When you configure a heartbeat
connection in an MX Series Virtual Chassis, the Detected state indicates that the master
Routing Engine in the specified member router has successfully exchanged a heartbeat
connection message with the other member router when an adjacency disruption or
split occurs in the Virtual Chassis. The Detected state persists until the heartbeat
connection is reset, or until the Virtual Chassis forms again and a master router (protocol
master) and backup router (protocol backup) are elected.
In previous releases, the show virtual-chassis heartbeat command displayed the Alive
state for both split and merged Virtual Chassis conditions when a heartbeat message
was successfully exchanged between the member routers. As a result, the only way
to detect whether a heartbeat connection was in use during an adjacency split or
disruption was to check for the Heartbt status in the show virtual-chassis status
command. The new Detected state in the show virtual-chassis heartbeat command
enables you to use a single command to determine whether or not the heartbeat
message was successfully exchanged during an adjacency split.
[See show virtual-chassis heartbeat.]

Changes in Behavior and Syntax
•
Improved command output for determining GRES readiness in an MX Series Virtual
Chassis (MX Series with MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R3, the request
virtual-chassis routing-engine master switch check command displays the following
output when the member routers in a Virtual Chassis are ready to perform a graceful
Routing Engine switchover (GRES):
{master:member0-re0}
user@host> request virtual-chassis routing-engine master switch check
Switchover Ready
In earlier releases, the request virtual-chassis routing-engine master switch check
command displays no output to confirm that the member routers are ready for GRES.
The output of the request virtual-chassis routing-engine master switch check command
has not changed when the member routers are not yet ready for GRES.
Interfaces and Chassis
•
Distributed denial-of-service protection policer added for system log messages (MX
Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, a new protocol-group policer is available
for system log messages. This aggregate policer controls UDP traffic on port 6333,
where the system log server runs on a Routing Engine. In a network where the local
Routing Engine is the system log server, you can use this policer to control the rate at
which system log messages reach the Routing Engine. You can configure values
appropriate for your network environment at the [edit system ddos-protection protocols
syslog aggregate] hierarchy level. The syslog policer is enabled by default, with a default
bandwidth of 2000 packets per second and a default burst of 10,000 packets.
•
Support for LLDP frames on management interfaces (MX Series)—Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2, LLDP protocol can be enabled on management interfaces (fxp0
and me0) by including the interface interface-name statement or the interface all
statement at the [edit protocols lldp] and [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name
protocols lldp] hierarchy levels. The outputs of various LLDP show commands have
been enhanced to display the LLDP specific local and remote neighbor information on
these management ports, if LLDP is enabled on these ports.
•
Support for auto-10m-100m speed option on Tri-rate MIC (MX Series)— In Junos OS
Release 14.2R7, a new option—auto-10m-100m— is introduced (for the speed statement)
to allow the fixed tri-speed port to autonegotiate with ports that support a maximum
of 100 Mbps or 10 Mbps. When you configure the speed auto-10m-100m statement on
the Tri-rate MIC, it advertises only 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps speeds. The MIC then
autonegotiates either speed on the basis of peer port advertisement.
This option is supported on MX Series routers with Tri-rate MICs (model number:
MIC-3D-40GE-TX) only.
•
Support for fabric self-pings and Packet Forwarding Engine liveness in single-chassis
systems (T Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R6, T Series single-chassis
systems support the fabric self-ping and Packet Forwarding Engine liveness
mechanisms to detect fabric degradation and avoid a traffic black hole. If any error is
detected by these two mechanisms, the fabric manager raises a fabric degraded alarm
and initiates recovery by restarting the FPC. In a single-chassis system, FPC restart is

Layer 2 VPNs
•
Support for hot standby pseudowire for VPLS instances with LDP (MX
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6, you can configure a routing device
running a VPLS routing instance configured with the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP)
to indicate that a hot-standby pseudowire is desired upon arrival of a PW_FWD_STDBY
status-tlv. Include the hot-standby-vc-on statement at the [edit routing instances
routing-instance-name protocols vpls mesh-group mesh-group-name neighbor address
pseudowire-status-tlv] hierarchy level.
MPLS
•
Enhanced show ldp database and show ldp overview commands—Starting in Junos
OS Release 14.2, the show ldp database command includes a new option and two new
output fields that provide enhanced information about LDP label accounting. The
command now includes a Labels received field in the Input label database section and
a Labels advertised field in the Output label database section. A new option, summary,
displays how many labels are received and sent for each LDP session. The show ldp
overview command includes a new field, Label allocation, that displays how many LDP
labels are allocated, how many are freed, how many have experienced failure, and the
number allocated by all protocols. These enhancements enable you to debug label
exhaustion events more easily.
[See show ldp database.]
•
Enhanced support for GRE interfaces for GMPLS (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 12.3R7, on GRE interfaces for Generalized MPLS control channels, you can
enable the inner IP header’s ToS bits to be copied to the outer IP packet header. Include
the copy-tos-to-outer-ip-header statement at the [edit interfaces gre unit
logical-unit-number] hierarchy level. Previously, the copy-tos-to-outer-ip-header
statement was supported for GRE tunnel interfaces only.
[See copy-tos-to-outer-ip-header.]
•
Changes to MPLS protection options—In Junos OS releases prior to Release 14.2, you
can configure both fast reroute and node and link protection on the same LSP. In Junos
OS Release 14.2 and later releases, you can still configure both fast reroute and node
and link protection on the same LSP; however, when you attempt to commit a
configuration where both features are enabled, a syslog warning message is displayed
that states: The ability to configure both fast-reroute and link/node-link protection on
the same LSP is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
•

Enhanced transit LSP statistics collection—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, RSVP
no longer periodically polls for transit LSP statistics. This change does not affect the
show mpls lsp statistics command or automatic bandwidth operations for ingress LSPs.
To enable the polling and display of transit LSP statistics, include the
transit-statistics-polling statement at the [edit protocols mpls statistics] hierarchy
level. You cannot enable transit LSP statistics collection if MPLS statistics collection

Network Address Translation (NAT)
•
Support for a new option to configure sequential allocation of ports for NAT (MX
Series)— Until Junos OS Release 14.1, you could include the port automatic statement
at the [edit services nat pool nat-pool- name] hierarchy level without having to use the
auto option with the port automatic statement. Although the default method of
assignment of ports was sequential (indicated by the auto option), the auto option
was not required to be specified. Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the sequential
option is introduced to enable you to configure sequential allocation of ports. The
sequential and random-allocation options available with the port automatic statement
at the [edit services nat pool nat-pool-name] hierarchy level are mutually exclusive.
You can include the sequential option for sequential allocation and the
random-allocation option for random delegation of ports. By default, sequential
allocation of ports takes place if you include only the port automatic statement at the
[edit services nat pool nat-pool-name] hierarchy level. The auto option is hidden and is
deprecated in Junos OS Release 14.2 and later, and is only maintained for backward
compatibility. It might be removed completely in a future software release.
If you upgrade a router running a Junos OS release earlier than Release 14.2 to Release
14.2 and if the router contains the port automatic statement defined without the auto
option included with the configuration, the router validates the auto option present in
the configuration for sequential allocation of ports.
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Enhancement for SONET interval counter (M Series, MX Series, and T
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6, only the Current Day Interval Total
output field in the show interfaces interval command for SONET interfaces is reset
after 24 hours. In addition, the Previous Day Interval Total output field displays the last
updated time in hh:mm.
[See show interfaces interval.]
IPv6
•
IPv6 addresses with padded zeros in MIC or MS-MPC system log messages (M Series,
MX Series, and T Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, all system log
messages originating from MIC or MS-MPC line cards display padded zeros in IPv6
addresses to make them compatible with MS-DPC line cards. Earlier, the system log
messages from MIC or MS-MPC line cards displayed IPv6 addresses with ’::’ instead
of padded zeros.
Layer 2 Features

Support for configuring MAC move parameters globally (MX Series)—Starting in
Junos OS Release 14.2R7, you can configure parameters for media access control
(MAC) address move reporting by including the global-mac-move statement and its
substatements at the [edit protocols l2-learning] hierarchy level. When a MAC address
appears on a different physical interface or within a different unit of the same physical
interface and this behavior occurs frequently, it is considered a MAC move. You can

configure the router such as to report a MAC address move based on the following
parameters: the number of times a MAC address move occurs, a specified period of
time over which the MAC address move occurs, and specified number of times a MAC
address move occurs in one second.
•
Support for bridge domain MAC move action in MX104 router—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.2, the enable-mac-move-action statement is supported in MX104 router.
Routing Policy and Firewall Filters
•
New option for show firewall command—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the show
firewall command supports a new option, filter regex regular-expression, that enables
you to display information about a subset of firewall filters. For regular-expression,
include a regular expression that matches the specific names of filters for which you
want to display information. Previously, the command only allowed you to display
information either about all filters or a specific filter. This enhancement enables devices
configured with a very large number of filters to display information about a subset of
filters more efficiently.
[See show firewall.]
•
Support for shared firewall filters across multiple routing instances (MX Series
routers with MPCs)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, on MX Series routers with
Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) only, you can specify to share one or more firewall
filters across multiple routing instances. Multiple firewall filters can be shared only
when network services for the device are configured with enhanced IP mode. By default,
firewall filters are not shared automatically across multiple routing instances. Include
the instance-shared statement at the [edit firewall family protocol-family-name filter
filter-name] hierarchy level. You can configure a combination of shared and nonshared
filters on the same routing device. This feature can be used with the following protocol
families: Bridge, IPv4, IPv6, Layer 2 CCC, MPLS, and VPLS.
[See Guidelines for Configuring Firewall Filters.]

•
Support for loss-of-continuity check per remote MEP (MX Series)—Beginning with
Junos OS Release 14.2, you can specify that Ethernet OAM continuity checks are
performed for an individual remote maintenance end point (MEP) by including the
detect-loc statement at the [edit protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management
maintenance-domain md-name maintenance-association ma-name mep mep-id
remote-mep mep-id] hierarchy level. A loss-of-continuity (LOC) defect is declared if
no continuity check message is received from the remote MEP within a period equal
to 3.5 times the continuity check interval configured for the maintenance association.
If this occurs, the show oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management interfaces detail
command displays a value of yes for the Remote MEP not receiving CCM defect field.
The error also generates a syslog CFMD_CCM_DEFECT_RMEP message.
•
Support for BFD for IS-IS IPv6 interfaces—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.1R2,
bidirectional forwarding detection (BFD) is supported for IS-IS IPv6 interfaces. Include
the bidirectional-forwarding-detection statement at the [edit protocols isis interface
interface-name] hierarchy level. By default, multiple BFD sessions over a single adjacency

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces that belong to the same IS-IS instance are not automatically
created. To enable BFD on IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces configured on the same IS-IS
instance, you must also include the new bfd-per-address-family statement at the [edit
protocols isis interface interface-name] hierarchy level. When BFD is enabled for both
IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces in a single IS-IS instance, a BFD session is created for each
protocol family interface. If either the IPv4 or IPv6 session fails, the adjacency is torn
down.
[See Example: Configuring BFD for IS-IS.]
•
Introduction of the all keyword to prevent accidental execution of certain clear
commands—The all keyword is introduced in Junos OS Release 14.2 (as an optional
keyword). This makes users explicitly select the all keyword to clear all protocol or
session information. Thus, it prevents accidental clearing or resetting of protocols or
neighbor sessions, which might disrupt network operations.
The all keyword is introduced for the following clear commands:
•

•
clear arp
•
clear bgp neighbor
•
clear bfd adaptation
•
clear bfd session
•
clear igmp membership

Support for RFC 6996, RFC 7300, and Internet draft-ietf-idr-as0-06—Beginning
with Junos OS Release 14.2, RFC 6996, Autonomous System (AS) Reservation for Private
Use, RFC 7300, Reservation of Last Autonomous System (AS) Numbers, and Internet
draft-ietf-idr-as0-06 are supported.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Changes in Behavior and Syntax
RFC 6996, Autonomous System (AS) Reservation for Private Use, defines the range of
the reserved, private AS numbers. The set of reserved 16-bit AS numbers is in the range
from 64,512 through 65,535 and the reserved 32-bit AS numbers range from
4200000000 through 4294967294. Even though the use of the last 16-bit AS numbers
are reserved, private AS number 65535 is allowed in Junos OS configurations. However,
we do not recommend using this restricted AS number.
RFC 7300, Reservation of Last Autonomous System (AS) Numbers, and the Internet
draft draft-ietf-idr-as0-06 restrict the use of 4-byte AS number 4294967295UL, and
AS number 0 in a configuration. When you use these restricted AS numbers, the commit
operation fails.
[See 4-Byte Autonomous System Numbers Overview.]
•
BGP hides a route received with a label block size greater than 256—Beginning with
Junos OS Release 14.2R2, when a BGP peer (running Junos OS) sends a route with a
label block size greater than 256, the local speaker hides the route and does not
re-advertise this route. The output of show route detail/extensive hidden/all displays
the hidden route and states the reason as label block size exceeds max supported value.
In earlier Junos releases, when a peer sent a route with a label block size greater than
256, the routing protocol process (rpd) terminated abnormally.

•
Packet types added for DDoS protection L2TP policers (MX Series with MPCs, T4000
with FPC5)—The following eight packet types have been added to the DDoS protection
L2TP protocol group to provide flexibility in controlling L2TP packets:
cdn
scccn
hello
sccrq
iccn
stopccn
icrq
unclassified
Previously, no individual packet types were available for this protocol group and all
L2TP packets were policed the same based on the aggregate policer value. The default
values for the bandwidth and burst policers for all packet types is 20,000 pps. The
default recover-time is 300 seconds for each of the L2TP packet types.
•
BGP route is hidden when AS path length is more than the configured maximum AS
size —Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.1, BGP hides a route when the length of the
AS path does not match the number of ASs in the route update. In earlier Junos releases
when a route with AS path size over 2048 was advertised, it could cause session flaps
between BGP peers because of the mismatch. Therefore, to avoid session flaps, such
routes are now hidden by Junos. You can see this behavior when bgp-error-tolerance
is configured.
If you want BGP to advertise the hidden route to an OSPF neighbor, we recommend
to add the AS path statically in the default route configuration. For example:

Changes to distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection protocol groups and
packet types (MX Series, T4000 with FPC5)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the
following syntax changes have been made:
•
•
Policer
The mlp protocol group has been modified as follows to provide DDoS protection
with full control of the bandwidth:
•
The aging-exc, packets, and vxlan packet types have been removed from the mlp
protocol group.
•
The add, delete, and lookup packet types have been added to the mlp protocol
group. These packets correspond to the MAC learning command codes.
•
The keepalive protocol group has been renamed to tunnel-ka.
•
The firewall-host protocol group and the mcast-copy packet type in the unclassified
protocol groups have been removed from the CLI. They are now classified by the
internal host-bound classification engine on the line card.
Changes to distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection default values for MLP
packets (MX Series, T4000 with FPC5)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the
following default bandwidth (pps) and burst (packets) values apply for MLP packets

Changes to distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection flow detection defaults
(MX Series, T4000 with FPC5)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, flow detection
defaults to disabled for the following protocol groups and packet type, because they
do not have typical Ethernet, IP, or IPv6 headers. Global flow detection does not enable
flow detection for these groups and the packet type.
•
Protocol groups: fab-probe, frame-relay, inline-ka, isis, jfm, mlp, pfe-alive, pos, services.

Increase in the default rate of transmission of system logs to an external syslog
server (MX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2 the maximum number of
system log messages per second to an external syslog server has been increased from
200,000 to 800,000 logs.
•
Interoperation of ingress sampling and PIC-based flow monitoring (MX Series)—If
PIC-based flow monitoring is enabled on an ms- logical interface, a commit check
error occurs when you attempt to configure ingress traffic sampling on that particular
ms- logical interface. This error occurs because a combination of ingress sampling and
PIC-based flow monitoring operations on an ms- logical interface causes undesired
flow monitoring behavior and might result in repeated sampling of a single packet. You
must not configure ingress traffic sampling on ms- logical interfaces on which PIC-based
flow monitoring is enabled.
•
Change in support for service options configuration on service PICs at the MS and
AMS interface levels (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R3, when a
multiservices PIC (ms- interface) is a member interface of an AMS bundle, you can
configure the service options to be applied on the interface only at the ms- interface
level or the AMS bundle level by including the services-options statement at the [edit
interfaces interface-name] hierarchy level at a point in time. You cannot define service
options for a service PIC at both the AMS bundle level and at the ms- interface level
simultaneously. When you define the service options at the MS level or the AMS bundle

interface defined at ms-fpc/pic/port.logical-unit or amsN, respectively.
•
Generation of mspmand core file for flow control (MX Series routers with MS-MICs
and MS-MPCs)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, instead of an eJunos kernel
core file, the multiservices PIC management daemon core file is generated when a
prolonged flow control occurs and when you configure the setting to generate a core
dump during prolonged flow control (by using the dump-on-flow-control option). The
watchdog functionality continues to generate a kernel core file in such scenarios.
•
Changes in the format of session open and close system log messages (MX Series
routers with MS-MICs and MS-MPCs)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, with
the Junos OS Extension-Provider packages installed and configured on the device for
MS-MPCs and MS-MICs, the formats of the MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_OPEN and
MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_CLOSE system log messages are modified to toggle the order
of the destination IPv4 address and destination port address displayed in the log
messages to be consistent and uniform with the formats of the session open and close
logs of MS-DPCs.
The following is the modified format of the MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_OPEN and
MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_CLOSE system log messages:
month date hh:mm:ss syslog-server-ip-address yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss
{NAT-type}<MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_CLOSE or MSVCS_LOG_SESSION_OPEN>:App:
application, source-interface-name fpc/pic/port\address in hexadecimal format
source-address:source-port source-nat-information ->
destination-address:destination-port destination-nat-information (protocol-name)
The following is an example of the session closure message generated for MS-MPCs
and MS-MICs:

•
Optional inclusion of Flags in DTCP LIST messages (MX Series)—Starting in Junos
OS Release 14.2R3, the Flags field is not a required parameter in the DTCP LIST
message. The LIST request is not rejected if the LIST message does not contain the
Flags field. If the DTCP LIST message contains the Flags field, the value of that field
is processed. If the LIST message does not contain the Flags field, the CRITERIA field
parameter is used for the Flags field.
•
Support for bouncing service sets for dynamic NAT (MX Series with MS-MPCs and
MS-MICs)— Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R2, for service sets associated with
aggregated multiservices (AMS) interfaces, you can configure the
enable-change-on-ams-redistribution statement at the [edit services service-set
service-set-name service-set-options] hierarchy level to enable the service set to be
bounced (reset) for dynamic NAT scenarios (dynamic NAT, NAT64, and NAT44) when
a member interface of an AMS bundle rejoins or a member interface failure occurs.
When a member interface fails, the application resources (NAT pool in the case of
dynamic NAT scenarios) and traffic load need to be rebalanced. For application

Support for deterministic NAPT (MX Series)—You can configure deterministic port
block allocation for Network Address Port Translation (NAPT) on MX Series routers
with MS-MPCs or MS-MICs. By configuring deterministic NAPT, you ensure that
translation of internal host IP(private IP to public IP and vice versa) is deterministic
thus eliminating the need for address translation logging for each connection. To use
deterministic port block allocation, you must specify deterministic-napt44 as the
translation type in your NAT rule.
Subscriber Management and Services
NOTE: Subscriber management is not supported in 14.2R6.
Although present in the code, the subscriber management features are not
supported in Junos OS Release 14.2R6. Documentation for subscriber
management features is included in the Junos OS Release 14.2 documentation
set.

Changes in Behavior and Syntax
•
Locally configured DNS addresses displayed in the result of the test aaa (dhcp | ppp)
command (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, if RADIUS does not return
any DNS addresses, then the output of the test aaa (dhcp | ppp) command includes
any locally configured DNS addresses.
[See Testing a Subscriber AAA Configuration.]
•
Support for applying access profiles to DHCP local server and DHCP relay
agent—Access profiles enable you to specify subscriber access authentication and
accounting parameters. After access profiles are created, you can attach them at the
[edit system services dhcp-local-server] hierarchy level on a DHCP local server for DHCP
or DHCPv6 subscribers and at the [edit forwarding-options dhcp-relay] hierarchy level
on a DHCP relay agent for DHCP or DHCPv6 subscribers, group of subscribers, or group
of interfaces.
If you configured a global access profile at the [edit access profile profile-name] hierarchy
level for all DHCP or DHCPv6 clients on a router that functions as a DHCP local server
or a DHCP relay agent, the access profile configured at the [edit system services
dhcp-local-server] or [edit system services dhcpv-local-server dhcpv6] hierarchy level
on a DHCP local server for DHCP or DHCPv6 subscribers and at the [edit
forwarding-options dhcp-relay] or [edit forwarding-options dhcp-relay dhcpv6] hierarchy
level on a DHCP relay agent for DHCP or DHCPv6 subscribers take precedence over
the global access profile.
Configuring an access profile for DHCP subscribers at the DHCP relay agent level or
the DHCP local server level provide you with the flexibility and effectiveness of enabling
DHCP authentication and accounting for specific subscribers instead of enabling them
at a global level. If no access profile is configured at the DHCP relay agent level or the
DHCP local server level, the global access profile becomes effective.
•
Support for processing Cisco VSAs in RADIUS messages for service
provisioning—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, Cisco VSAs are supported for
provisioning and management of services in RADIUS messages, in addition to the
supported Juniper Networks VSAs for administration of subscriber sessions. In a
deployment in which a customer premises equipment (CPE) is connected over an
access network to a broadband remote access gateway, the Steel-Belted Radius
Carrier (SBRC) application might be used as the authentication and accounting server
using RADIUS as the protocol, and the Cisco BroadHop application might be used as
the Policy Control and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) server for provisioning services
using RADIUS change of authorization (CoA) messages. Both the SBRC and the Cisco
BroadHop servers are considered to be connected with the broadband gateway in such
a topology.
By default, service accounting is disabled. If you configure service accounting using
both RADIUS attributes and the CLI interface, the RADIUS setting takes precedence
over the CLI setting. To enable service accounting using the CLI, include the accounting
statement at the [edit access profile profile-name service] hierarchy level. To enable
interim service accounting updates and configure the amount of time that the router
waits before sending a new service accounting update, include the update-interval
minutes statement at the [edit access profile profile-name service accounting] hierarchy
level.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
You can configure the router to collect time statistics, or both volume and time statistics,
for the service accounting sessions being managed by AAA. To configure the collection
of statistical details that are time-based only, include the statistics time statement at
the [edit access profile profile-name service accounting] hierarchy level. To configure
the collection of statistical details that are both volume-time-based only, include the
statistics volume-time statement at the [edit access profile profile-name service
accounting] hierarchy level.
•
Specifying the UDP port for RADIUS dynamic-request servers—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2, you can define the UDP port number to configure the port on which the
router that functions as the RADIUS dynamic-request server must receive requests
from RADIUS servers. By default, the router listens on UDP port 3799 for dynamic
requests from remote RADIUS servers. You can configure the UDP port number to be
used for dynamic requests for a specific access profile or for all of the access profiles
on the router. To define the UDP port number, include the dynamic-request-port
port-number statement at the [edit access profile profile-name radius-server
server-address] or [edit access radius-server server-address] hierarchy level.
•
LAC configuration no longer required for L2TP tunnel switching with RADIUS
attributes (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2R3, when you use Juniper
Networks VSA 26-91 to provide tunnel profile information for L2TP tunnel switching,
you no longer have to configure a tunnel profile on the LAC. In earlier releases, tunnel
switching failed when you did not also configure the LAC, even when the RADIUS
attributes were present.
•
Change to show services l2tp tunnel command (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2R4, the show services l2tp tunnel command also includes in its display
tunnels that have no active sessions. In earlier releases, the command does not display
tunnels without any active sessions.
User Interface and Configuration
•
Changed destination file format for transfer-on-commit feature (M Series, MX Series,
and T Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, the format of the destination
filename for the transfer-on-commit feature is changed from
router-name_juniper.conf.n.gz_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS to
router-name_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS_juniper.conf.n.gz.
[See archive-sites and Using Junos OS to Configure a Router or Switch to Transfer Its
Configuration to an Archive Site.]
•
New warning message for the configurational changes to extend-size (M Series, MX
Series, and T Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R5, any operation on the
system configuration-database extend-size configuration statement such as, deactivate,
delete, or set, generates the following warning message:
Change in 'system configuration-database extend-size' will be effective at next reboot
only.

MPLS
•
If an SRLG is associated with a link used by an ingress LSP in the router, then on deleting
the SRLG configuration from that router, the SRLG gets removed from the SRLG table
only on the next reoptimization of the LSP. Until then, the output displays Unknown-XXX
instead of the SRLG name and a non zero srlg-cost of that SRLG for the run show mpls
srlg command.
Network Management and Monitoring
•
On the MX Series, when there is no traffic, the Qdepth statistics output field in the show
class-of-service fabric statistics detail command displays count 0 for all the subfields,
except the Max count subfield.
•
On MX Series routers, when you configure multiple prefix lists for endpoint independent
filtering, all the prefix lists do not get enabled. As a workaround, to configure multiple
prefix lists for endpoint independent filtering, ensure that you use a single commit
command to commit the configuration of all the defined prefix lists. If you want to
include additional prefixes in the prefix lists, delete all the existing prefix lists and add
them again.
Routing Protocols
•
Junos OS displays the configured BGP group description pushed by the remote
procedure call (RPC) in the show | compare output even after commit is performed.
This occurs due to the use of terminating double quotes in the string inputs, in the RPC
XML format. Therefore, as a workaround do not include terminating quotes in strings
in any RPC XML configuration to avoid this issue. PR1066084
Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

On MX Series routers running OpenFlow v1.3.1 software, flow statistics show that the
packet flow is increasing even when the output port link is down. PR987753

The show ppp interface interface-name extensive and show interfaces pp0 commands
display different values for the LCP state of a tunneled subscriber on the LAC. The
show ppp interface interface-name extensive command displays STOPPED whereas
the show interfaces pp0 command displays OPENED (which reflects the LCP state
before tunneling). As a workaround, use the show ppp interface interface-name extensive
command to determine the correct LCP state for the subscriber.

Known Issues
•
On MX Series routers, when you configure the subscriber-awareness statement on a
service set by committing the set services service-set service-set-name
service-set-options subscriber-awareness statement, the service sessions fail to create.
To avoid this issue, on MX Series routers that support the Service Control Gateway
solution, ensure that the Junos OS Mobility package software is installed on the router.
The Service Control Gateway solution is supported only in 14.1X55 releases. For Junos OS
Releases 14.2, and 15.1, ensure that the subscriber-awareness statement is not set.
•
Subscriber management is not supported when the routing protocol daemon (rpd) is
running in 64-bit mode. For subscriber management support, rpd must run in 32-bit
mode.
System Logging
•
On MX Series routers, when you configure a rate limit for system log messages by
setting the message-rate-limit statement for a multiservices interface, ensure that the
syslog host option for that interface is configured. This configuration ensures that the
system log statistics reflect the rate limit set for the interface.
VPNS

Default export EVPN policy has been removed (MX Series)—Starting in Junos OS
Release 14.2R7 and forward, the hidden default EVPN export policy statement
(evpn-pplb) has been removed. To enable and configure load balance per packet for
EVPN and PBB-EVPN, use the existing policy statements:
•
set routing-options forwarding-table export evpn-pplb
•
set policy-options policy-statement evpn-pplb from protocol evpn
•
set policy-options policy-statement evpn-pplb then load-balance per-packet
NOTE: To support EVPN multihoming, you must configure the load-balance
per-packet statement.

When the egress rewrite rules are assigning to both the underlying interface and the
subscriber interface, the rewrite rule applied to the underlying interface may take
precedence and the priority values are applied as set at that level, which is wrong. The

Firewall filter-list configured of inet and inet6 applied on same ifl under inet and inet6
family input-list. Functionality-wise no issue and the CLI command "run show firewall"
shows correct statistics for both filters lists configured for inet and inet6 families. Here
the limitation arrived with the day-one implementation of filter-list renaming logic.
Both inet and inet6 filter list configured will have the same name, refer to
http://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos15.1/topics/concept/firewal
l-filter-option-multiple-listed-overview.html . The system will have two filters with the
same name. Due to this, in SNMP MIB will handle only any one of this filter-list stats

different families of same ifl, then only one of the filter-list family counters can be
shown in SNMP MIB walk of firewall counter table. PR1173332

Eventd uses event library for Signal handling. This core dump is due to a race-condition

rotation) If one signal handler is preempted by another signal-handler, then it can mess
up WaitList structures (and this can cause core-dump). This can happen when eventd
received a new signal, when it was processing another signal. This situation may not
happen every-time and hence we see this core-dump rarely. PR1122877

General Routing

DPD may not work with link-type IPSec tunnels when NAT is present between the
IPSec peers. Even when NAT is not present between the IPsec peers, the issue can
occur with lesser probability. PR895719
•
In MX Virtual Chassis (MX-VC) environment, the private local next hops and routes
pointing to private local next hops are sent to thePacket Forwarding Engine from master
Routing Engine and not sent to slave Routing Engine, then an Routing Engine switchover
happens. Now, as the new master Routing Engine does not know about such next hops
and routes, they are not cleaned up. When a next hop with same index is added on
new master Routing Engine and sent to Packet Forwarding Engine, the Packet
Forwarding Engine might crash due to a stale next hop existing. PR951420
•
An EVPN with support for inter-subnet routing using an irb interface may experience
a crash and restart of rpd, leaving a core file for analysis. In this case, EVPN MAC routes
contain MAC+IP, and this IP/32 is installed in VRF table on egress router. Core is
triggered in the IP/32 route installation flow. There is no special trigger point- it's a
timing issue with basic irb configurations. PR992059
•
The L2ald may crash after interface flap. PR1015297
•
In IP security (IPsec) VPN environment, after performing the RE switchover, the traffic
may fail to be forwarded due to the SAs may not be downloaded to the PIC, or due to
some security associations (SAs) on the PIC may incorrectly hold references for old
Security Policy Database (SPD) handles while SPD has deleted its entries in the Security
Association Database (SAD). PR1047827

If NSR (nonstop routing) is enabled and a TCP session is terminated while there is still
data in the socket pending transmission, the MBUF (kernel memory buffer) used to
store this data might not get deallocated properly. In order to hit this issue the TCP
session must use NSR active socket replication. If the system runs low on MBUF
memory, the kernel will automatically throttle down memory allocation on low priority
applications and ultimately, if there is no MBUF left, the system could become
unresponsive due to its inability to serve I/O requests. PR1098001

On MX Series routers where MS-MIC or MS-MPC is inserted, certain combinations of
fragmented packets might lead to an MS-MIC or MS-MPC coredump. PR1102367

In rare condition, after Routing Engine switchover, - the MPC PIC might offline, and
some error messages might be seen. - at times chassisd on Routing Engine goes to
continuous coring makes unit unusable as none of interfaces come up. Root cause:
After Routing Engine switch over chassisd fail to get proper status of the FPCs and
cores due to insufficient IDEEPROM read times. PR1110590
•
If a static or protocol learned route points to a set of interfaces effectively resulting in
static route pointing to a unilist nexthop, it is possible that the selector weights may
not be initialized correctly resulting in traffic drop. You can mitigate this issue by
deactivating and then activating the static route configuration. PR1120370
•
For scaled configuration, it may take too much time for commit and session gets hung
because there is an unnecessary check to see if family Ethernet-switching co-exists
with family bridge for all interfaces having bridge configuration. PR1122863

Given an active BGP multipath route with 2+ Indirect-Next-Hops and another BGP
route which can participate in protocol independent multipath with router-next-hop,
rpd might crash if the interface on which first member of Indirect-Next-Hop resolves
goes down. PR1156811
•
A previous enhancement to strengthen the VC-Heartbeat message exchange resulted
rejecting messages at the crucial time of determining the health of the other VC member
when all adjacency links fail. Validation of messages has been adjusted to remain
strong when the VC is connected, but relaxed during the split conditions to prevent
rejecting valid messages. PR1157383
•
On MX Series platform supporting MPC3E or MPC4E type MPC, the single-hop BFD
session configured under a routing-instance (RI) can flap intermittently. The problem
would be seen when the main-instance loopback firewall filter discards/rejects the
BFD packets OR has term to accept only BFD packets from neighbors configured under
main instance. In both scenarios, the BFD session packets coming on routing-instance
will be wrongly matched to main-instance loopback filter and gets discarded. With
the fix of this issue, this situation is avoided and BFD session packets from
routing-instance will be matched with the correct RI loopback filter (if configured).
Note: In case there is no RI loopback interface configured, then BFD packets are matched
against main-instance loopback filter. PR1157437

From Junos OS Release 13.2R1 and later, Packet Forwarding Engine interfaces on
Trio-based line cards might remain down after performing "request system reboot

RPD may crash after EVPN was configured when extra bits in the ESI label extended
community are set besides the single-active bit PR1158195
•
On MX Series platform, when MPC experiences a FATAL error, it gets reported to the
chassisd daemon. Based on the action that is defined for a FATAL error, the chassisd
will take subsequent action for the FATAL error. By default, the action for FATAL error
is to reset the MPC. When the MPC reports FATAL error, chassisd will send offline
message and will power off the MPC upon the ACK reception. However, if MPC is in
busy state for any reason, the ACK doesn't come in time and hence there would be a
delay in bringing down the MPC. The fix ensures to bring down the MPC in time upon
FATAL error. PR1159742
•
Software OS thread on the line card is doing a busy loop by reading the clock directly
from hardware, Sometimes it seems the thread is getting wrong values from HW
register and waiting forever in the busy loop. After the busy loop crosses a certain time
period, the line card crashes and reboots. This is a rare condition. PR1160452

On MX Series router with "network-services enhanced-ip" configuration. When firewall
daemon first come up as part of the system reboot, it could not read the chassis
network-service configuration statement from the kernel, which is expected. After so
many read retries, firewall daemon has to choose the default chassis network-service
IP mode. When the interface description change is committed, firewall reads the chassis
network-service configuration statement again. If it reads successfully, the firewall
daemon has to restart itself because the chassis network-service is enhanced-ip mode.

This issue will be seen only when there are huge number of routes having different BGP
NHs pointing to the same AS. Depending on the number of routes pointing to AS paths
and also the difference in BGP NHs in the routes can shoot up the srrd (Sampling

seen often, as the number of AS paths will be huge and the routes referring these AS
paths will be usually distributed among the AS paths. Even if the routes are pointing
to the same AS, the impact would be lesser than the one seen in this scenario.

In ideal cases as the interface gets deleted, VRRP should move to bringup state; when
the interface is created again, VRRP goes to previous state. After this, VRRP should
get VIP addition notification from kernel and update VRRP state and group id for VIP.

If container LSP name and the suffix together are more than 60 characters in length,
rpd process might crash during extensive split merge conditions. Its always advisable
to keep them less than 60 characters. The member lsp name is coined in the following

have upto 64 characters. So after putting together the container name, suffix,
member-count (could go up to 2 digits), and the 2 hyphens, it should not exceed 64.
So container-name and suffix together should not exceed 60 characters. A commit

is defined by 5-tuple. This is all fine for TCP/UDP packets. But Layer-3 packets

Traffic drop from less than 400 ms to 8 seconds might be seen in RLFA scenario when
the primary link comes up. The reason for seeing the traffic drop is due to the delay in

as the primary next hop. So though the FIB has been updated, Packet Forwarding
Engine cannot still use it as it waits for ARP resolution on the new link. PR1106310

On MS-MPC-equipped MX Series platforms, during the "three-way handshake" process,
when receiving ACKs (e.g., after sending SYN and receiving SYN/ACK) with window
size 0 (as reported, it is set to 0 by TCP client when using some proprietary protocol),
the ACKs would be incorrectly dropped by the line card due to failure in TCP check.
This issue could be avoided by preventing software from dropping packets that fail in
the check, for example, by the following CLI command, re# set interfaces ms-3/0/0

During many types of configuration changes, especially including import policy, BGP
has the need to re-evaluate the routes it has learned from peers impacted by the
configuration change. This re-evaluation involves re-running import policy to see if
there ares any changes to the learned routes after applying the new policy. This work
is done in the background as part of an "Import Evaluation" job. When BGP is
reconfigured a second time, and the "Import Evaluation job" has not completed, it is
necessary to re-run the job from the beginning if there's another change to policy or
something with similar impact. This state is noted as "Import Evaluation Pending".
However, in this case, there was a bug that caused BGP to always enter the pending
state upon reconfiguration, regardless of whether relevant changes were made to
import or other similarly impactful configuration. The result is that once it is necessary
to start re-evaluation of the routes for a peer, even trivial configuration changes that
happen too quickly will cause the "Import Evaluation job" to need to run again as a
result of the "Pending" flag being set. To avoid the issue, please ensure that "ImportEval"
is not present in a BGP peer's Flags output from the CLI (show bgp neighbor) prior to
doing even trivial commits. PR1120190

shortest-path tree (SPT) is not yet established (only because multicast source is not
reachable, a reachable route for SPT which is just not established yet will not cause
this issue), when the multicast route gets deleted on the router (e.g., receives the (S,G)
prune from the downstream PIM router), the router will incorrectly stop forwarding the
multicast traffic even if a rendezvous-point tree (RPT) path exists. PR1130279

On dual Routing Engine platforms, due to a software issue, the OSPF (including both
OSPFv2 and OSPFv3) the "DoNotAge" bit (e.g., source of LSA has flood-reduction
feature enabled) is not mirrored to the backup routing protocol process (rpd). In this
situation, after performing nonstop active routing (NSR) switchover, the LSA on the
new master rpd remains without the "DoNotAge" bit set. Once the LSA reaches OSPF
max age, the router will flood LSA purge, hence route flapping might be seen on all
routers under the OSPF topology. PR1131075

Eventually, the rpd process will run out of memory and crash when it cannot honor
some request for a memory allocation. PR1144385

With NSR configured, when the BFD sessions are replicated on the backup Routing
Engine, the master will not send the source address, instead the backup Routing Engine
will query the kernel to get the source address. In rare cases, the query might fail,
resulting in the source address as all zeros. Later, if a GRES switchover happens, the
new master will have this all-zeros source address. When a BFD packet with this source
address is send out, the other end will drop the BFD session due to no matching session
(source address). PR1145612

In the BGP labeled unicast environment, the secondary route is configured with both
add-path and advertise-external. If the best route and secondary route are changed
in a routing table at the same time, add-path might miss to readvertise the changed
route. The old route with the old label is still the last route advertised to one router,
instead of updating the advertisement with the new route and new label. So the traffic
forwarding might be affected. PR1147126
•
This core is seen because of incorrect accounting of refcount associated with the
memory block which composes the nhid (IRB nh). When the refcount prematurely
reaches 0, we released the memory block while it was still referenced from a route.
We may see this issue when mcsnoopd becomes a slow consumer of rtsock events
generated by rpd (next-hop events in the current case) and messages get delivered
in an out-of-order sequence, causing the refcount to be incorrectly decremented. In
the testbed where the issue was reported, tracing was enabled for mcsnoopd (for
logging all events), causing it to become a slow consumer. However, it may become
slow also for other reasons, such as processing very high rate of IGMP snooping
reports/leaves which could potentially trigger this issue. PR1153932

Prefix P2 of Label L1. However, on backup rpd, it goes like this: Add Prefix P1 of Label
L1 Add Prefix P2 of Label L1 <====== Delete Prefix1 of Label L1. In this situation, backup
rpd cannot allocate the label L1 for P2 since L1 is already in use for P1, so it crashes.

It is observed that the syslog messages related to kernel and Packet Forwarding Engine
may get generated at an excessive rate, especially in a subscriber management
environment. Most of these messages may appear repeatedly, for example, more than
1.5 million messages may get recorded in 2 hours, and there are only 140 unique
messages. Besides, these messages are worthless during normal operation and due
to the excessive rate of log generation, high Routing Engine CPU consumption (for
example, Routing Engine CPU utilization can be stuck at 100% for a long time [minutes
or hours], it depends on the activity of subscribers (frequency of logins and logouts)
and on the AI scripts used by the customer) by event process (eventd) might be

the CE and the primary PE router, with local traffic flowing from another CE connected
with the primary PE to this CE, after bringing down the interface on the best path, the

A remote attacker can cause a denial of service to the MX Series router with MPC due
to maliciously crafted uBFD packets that are received directly via VPN, MPLS, multicast,
broadcast, on vt-interfaces, or otherwise. This issue affects both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic
in both Ethernet, and non-Ethernet physical environments, such as ATM or SONET,
where the crafted packet is received over physical interfaces. If processed from a DPC
through to the MPC, then in-transit traffic will not be susceptible. In a 6PE scenario, if
the system is not using LSI/vt, then it is not susceptible. If processed via MPC line card
will be affected, the MPC line card will crash. If processed via the MPC line card will be
affected, and the MPC line card will crash. If processed via endpoint receiving, the MPC
line card terminating tunneling protocols such as MPLS/IPSec VPNs, etc., will be
affected; this is considered an in-transit traffic scenario. This crash can happen when
the crafted packet is directed directly to the lo0 interface, IP/physical interface,
IP/broadcast IPv4 / IPv6 address of the physical interface. As a workaround, we can
apply a control plane (lo0) filter to drop uBFD packets. This issue is assigned
CVE-2015-7748. More detailed information in the following link:

On Junos OS platforms, an aggregateEthernet bundle having more than one member
link can show incorrect speed which wouldn't match to the total aggregate bandwidth

flap, the current master Routing Engine will show correct aggregate speed, the backup
Routing Engine will report an incorrect value. In this state, when Routing Engine
mastership is switched, the new master Routing Engine (which was backup) will show
a value. One of the side effects of this issue is that RSVP also reflects incorrect
bandwidth availability for the affected aggregateEthernet bundle, this can cause

to determine which interface it should send the packet to) decides that it should send
the packet via another interface (for example, xe-4/0/1.670) situated on a different
member (for example, VC member 0), it will send the frame to member 0 via the vcpintf. If xe-4/0/1.670 belongs to an AE bundle which has multiple child links, a hash
needs to be run on the Packet Forwarding Engine carrying the VCP port (receiving side
on member 0) to determine which one is the egress Packet Forwarding Engine within
member 0 to send the packet out after vcp- intf gets the packet. This hash result should
get the same result as the ingress Packet Forwarding Engine. If it is not the case, then

On MX Series-based platforms, when learning the MAC address from the pseudo-IFL

FPC where the MAC got learned, due to the delay (around 2 to 3 milliseconds) of MAC
address deleting message processed in the source FPC and the egress FPC (destination
FPC of the traffic), the MAC address might be deleted first from the egress Packet
Forwarding Engine but get added again during these 2-3 millisecond time intervals.
(As there is continuous traffic coming on the egress FPC destined to this MAC, the MAC
query is generated and sent to the Routing Engine and source FPC. Since the source
FPC has not yet processed the MAC-deleted message, it sends the response, so stale
MAC will get added on the egress Packet Forwarding Engine.) In this situation, no L2

applications. Various authentication methods (UNIX, LDAP, Kerberos, etc.) are
implemented in modules which are loaded and executed according to predefined,
named policies. These policies are defined in /etc/pam.conf, /etc/pam.d/<policy
name>, /usr/local/etc/pam.conf, or /usr/local/etc/pam.d/<policy name>. The PAM
API is a de facto industry standard which has been implemented by several parties.

On MX Series routers, the interrupt-driven basis link down detection (an interrupt-driven
link-down notification is generated to trigger locally attached systems to declare the
interface down within a few milliseconds of failure) may fail after performing unified
in-service software upgrade (ISSU). The interrupt might have been prevented after
performing unified ISSU due to disabling the interrupt registers before unified ISSU,
but never restored after. PR1059098

When a route points to an aggregated multiservices (AMS) logical interface, then after
manually bouncing this logical interface by disabling it and then enabling it again, the
aggregate next-hop referred by that route will have the child unicast next hop pointing
to the .discard.0 interface instead of member interface (mams) interfaces. As a result,
traffic ingress on MPC card and routed to that route will be discarded. PR1065944

When setting the syslog to debug level (any any), you may note reoccurring messages
of the form "ifa for this rt ia is not present, consider ifa as ready". These messages are

The static route prefers the directly connected subnet route for resolving the next hop
rather than performing a longest prefix match with any other available routes. In case
of longest prefix route being desired in customer deployment, it will result in traffic loss

longest prefix matching behavior when desired: set routing-options static route

Higher baseline CPU utilization and periodic CPU spikes might be seen on XM-based
MPC as compared to MPC-3D-16XGE-SFPP cards due to the following reasons: On
XM-based MPC, low priority threads which monitor various things in the background
on a periodic basis such as voltage, temperature, stats counters, hardware status, and
so on exist. When the system is idle, these threads are allowed to take more of the
load and that is why higher baseline CPU/CPU spikes are seen. This does not prevent
other higher priority threads from running when they have to, as these are non-critical
activities being done in the background and hence this is a non-impacting issue.

Layer 2 Features

In MX Series Virtual Chassis (MXVC) environment, when packets come from a interface
(for example, xe-16/0/1.542) situated on one member of VC (for example, VC member
1), if the ingress Packet Forwarding Engine (for example,FPC16 PFE0,who runs hash
to determine which interface it should send the packet to) decides that it should send
the packet via another interface (for example, xe-4/0/1.670) situated on different
member (for example, VC member 0), it will send the frame to member 0 via the vcpintf. In case of xe-4/0/1.670 belongs to an AE bundle which has multiple child links, a
hash need to be run on Packet Forwarding Engine carrying the VCP port (receiving side
on member 0) to determine which one is the egress Packet Forwarding Engine within
member 0 to send the packet out after vcp- intf gets the packet. This hash result should
get the same result as the ingress Packet Forwarding Engine. If it is not the case, then
the packet would get dropped on Packet Forwarding Engine on member 0. PR1097973

(As there is continuous traffic coming on the egress FPC destined to this MAC, the MAC

very fast, especially an interface comes back up before Kernel gets a chance to delete
all the unilist next-hops, those unilist next-hops which have not been deleted yet would
be reused. As a result, the corresponding destinations are pointing to discard
next-hop(s) or replaced next-hop(s) in Packet Forwarding Engine Jtree. The "discard"
next-hop(s) causes traffic blackhole while the "replaced" next-hop(s) diverts traffic

•
When BGP and ICCP are the client of the same multi-hop BFD session, BFD runs in
centralized (non-distributed) mode. But if nonstop-routing configuration is added and
enabled, the running mode of BFD is changed to distributed mode. This behavior is
incorrect but it would not affect protocols that are clients of the BFD session. However,
if Routing Engine switchover is performed after enabling NSR, the BFD session will
become unstable and all the client protocols also become unstable. PR1046755: This

Either "rib inet.3" or "resolve-vpn" feature is available to be configured in the lower
hierarchy for BGP labeled-unicast family routes. These two features are mutually
exclusive and only one of them could be used at a single BGP group. If the administrator
swaps the two features (for example, using the "resolve-vpn" first, then deactivate it
and using "rib inet.3" instead, then use "resolve-vpn" back), the secondary routes
(routes in inet.3 which including the ones from this BGP group and from other BGP
groups) may got accidentally removed every time on "commit" operation take place.
PR1052884: This issue has been resolved.
•
After deactivating/deleting a BFD configuration, the Packet Forwarding Engine receives
a BFD session down event and it marks corresponding next hops as down and traffic
drops consequently. PR1053016: This issue has been resolved.
•
The BGP session sending add-path prefixes can cause an rpd crash when the add-path
IDs that it allocates roll over from 65535 to 0. If the routes contributing add-path
prefixes are changing, the allocated path-id can eventually reach this value. This fix
changes the allocation scheme to always use the lowest available free path-id, so a
rollover will never occur. PR1053339: This issue has been resolved.

After multicast traffic source incoming interface and source IP RPF (reverse path
forwarding) route switching to a different interface, the multicast route cache upstream

•
In PIM environments, Bootstrap Router (BSR) can be used only between PIMv2 enabled
devices. When deactivating all the interfaces that are running PIM bootstrap, the system
changes to operate in PIMv1. At this time, all the information learned about/from the
current BSR should be cleaned, but actually, the BSR state is not cleaned. If the interface
which was the previous “elected BSR” is activated, BSR state is PIM_BSR_ELECTED
(should be cleaned previously) and the system assumes the BSR timer is still there.
When the system tries to access the null BSR timer, the rpd process might crash.
PR1062133: This issue has been resolved.

•
When configuring the unsupported IPv6 flow specification feature, that is, when
configuring the inet6 address as source/destination of the inet-flow route, the
configuration can pass the commit check and being committed. But it can cause the
rpd process to crash eventually when trying to program this route to the firewall process
(dfwd, which manages compilation and downloading of Junos OS firewall filters). If a
flow route is received from a BGP neighbor and the prefix-length for source/destination
is greater than 32, it can lead to an rpd process crash too. PR1059542: This issue has
been resolved.
•
policy displaying is changed and bug fixed PR1060417: This issue has been resolved.
Services Applications
•
The show cli command "service nat pool detail" always displays the Port range starting
from 1024, even when privileged ports are used. PR1019783: This issue has been resolved.
•
Added support to bring up tunnel-switched sessions when tunnel-group is not
configured at LTS and tunnel attributes are returned from RADIUS. PR1030799: This

•
When NAT has multiple terms that refer to the same NAT pool, the command “show

•
When using both Port Control Protocol (PCP) and traditional NAT (For example:
DS-Lite), if you try to setup two pools with overlapping address ranges, this can leads
to the MS-DPC to crash and generate a core file. PR1036459: This issue has been resolved.
•
In the context of DS-Lite softwire scenario, the MS-PIC/MS-DPC might crash in rare
occasions when the DS Lite softwire concentrator is receiving a high volume of outer
IPv6 fragmented packets. PR1044143: This issue has been resolved.

Inline IPv6 L2TP on MPC subscriber terminated at an LNS breaks adaptive services SP
unicast next hops on the MS-DPC. Even one subscriber causes the issue. PR1054589:
This issue has been resolved.
•
When the tunnel between the L2TP access concentrator (LAC) and L2TP network
server (LNS) is destroyed, the tunnel information will be maintained until
destruct-timeout expires (if the destruct-timeout is not configured, the default value
is 300 seconds). If the same tunnel is restarted within the destruct-timeout expiry, the
LNS will use the previously negotiated non-default UDP port, which might lead to the
tunnel negotiation failure. PR1060310: This issue has been resolved.
•
A Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol daemon (l2tpd) crash is seen sometimes when the L2TP
service interface unit number is configured higher than 8192. A restriction has been
added to force unit numbers below 8192. PR1062947: This issue has been resolved.
•
When configuring Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) authentication
for Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), the RADIUS server cannot be recognized
becaurse the source address is not being read correctly. As a result, the L2TP session
cannot be established. PR1064817: This issue has been resolved.
•
L2TP daemon will core in an LTS scenario while the subscriber logs out. This happens
when the subscriber has the "Called Number AVP" attribute. The "Called Number AVP"
was not getting relayed correctly across the LTS boundary, hence the daemon cores.

On MX-VC platforms, if with a scaled number of MVPN routes, after adding a new
interface in the MVPN instance or changing the traceoptions with related configuration,

•
In NG-MVPN scenarios with the non-zero selective provider tunnel threshold-rate
configured and NSR enabled, the selective provider tunnel might flap a few seconds
after Routing Engine switchover. The related Type 3 S-PMSI AD route and Type 4 leaf
AD route also refreshed. The data traffic might fall to inclusive provider tunnel in a
short time, depending on the configuration. This transition will cause packet loss due
to unbinding from one tunnel to the other and back. PR1049352: This issue has been
resolved.

link on MC-LAG members facing towards the CE is changed continually (that is active
to standby and standby to active), in a rare conditions, the traffic might not shift
correctly, and the rpd process might crash. PR1050737
•
In NG-MVPN scenarios, when a source is directly connected to a PE router that is acting
as an RP stops sending the traffic, the PE router never withdraws the Type 5 route.
This causes the Type 7 routes and forwarding routes to remain on the egress and ingress
PEs. PR1051799
•
In L2VPN scenarios with local switching enabled, in corner cases, the rpd process might
crash after flapping the PE-CE link. For example, if the L2VPN connection type changes
from remote to local after link flaps, for a brief period of time, two route entries (for
old remote VC connection and for the new local VC connection) might exist for the
same egress route (with interface name as destination prefix). In that case, when
deleting the remote VC connection and route entry associated with that remote
connection, the rpd might crash due to trying to reset an internal variable which is
already reset during route addition for the new local VC connection. PR1053887
•
In the l2circuit environment, when l2ckt configuration has backup-neighbor, the
flow-label operation is blocked at the configuration level. PR1056777
•
With a static selective point-to-multipoint LSP configured for an MBGP MVPN, when
sending a Type 3 S-PMSI A-D BGP route, the Juniper Networks implementation uses
the values taken from the selective P-Tunnel configuration, which is not compliant
with the RFC standard. Refer to RFC 6514, section 4.3, which specifies that the source
and group length values in Type-3 must be same as the host prefix length. That is, if
the Multicast Source field contains an IPv4 address, then the value of the Multicast
Source Length field is 32; if the Multicast Source field contains an IPv6 address, then
the value of the Multicast Source Length field is 128. The same is true for group length.
PR1058193
•
In MVPN RPT-SPT mode, with a mix of local and remote receivers all using (*,g) joins
(spt-threshold infinity), the downstream interfaces may not get updated properly and
there may be a stuck (s,g) forwarding route. This issue can occur with the following
sequence of events: 1. Local receivers are joined 2. Traffic starts, then stops, and the
route times out. 3. Remote receiver joins. Both a (*,g) and an (s,g) forwarding route
are created. 4. Another local receiver is joined, or an existing one is pruned. 5. In the
(*,g) route, the downstream interface list reflects the update, but in the (s,g) route,
the downstream interface list does not. 6. When traffic starts again, the (s,g) route -which has the wrong interface list -- is used. The traffic flows to the wrong set of
receivers. PR1061501

For MX Series routers with DPCs, IQ2 PIC expects Forwarding Class (FC) index in the
cookie from the DPC for packet queuing. For Transit traffic, fc index is coming in cookie
where are for host outbound traffic, and queue number is coming in cookie to IQ2 PIC.
As IQ2 PIC is not aware whether traffic is transit or host outbound, it treats the value
received in cookie as FC value and looks into fc_to_q table to fetch the queue number.
This is causing an issue in queueing of host outbound traffic in IQ2 PIC in incorrect
queue. This is a day–one issue and will come if in FC to Queue mapping, fc ID, and
queue number are not the same. PR1033572

Concentrator (DPC) card and also the forwarding topology that is using unilist nexthop
(The unilist is a list of nexthops and is used when router want to forward to one of the
component nexthops. It is mostly used for load balancing among the multiple members.
For example, a topology where VPLS PW is loadbalanced using a unilist over an
aggregate Ethernet interface), the composite-nexthop might not be installed on the
DPC card due to the Layer 2 forwarding information getting populated only for the first
unicast nexthop. This issue will result in the multicast traffic drop on the egress DPC.

physical interfaces located in different FPCs. 3. Those physical interfaces consist of
equal-cost paths. So, LSI will not be flapped with one member FPC down. 4. Flap the

For Ethernet OAM/CFM, if maintenance-association (MA) ICC format name of length
less than 13 characters (13 bytes) is used, deactivate/activate of “protocol oam” might
cause CFM operation failures. The 'Cross-connect CCM received’ alarm will be seen.
There can be other triggers also. ITU CARRIER CODE format uses fixed length size for
MA NAME (13 octets). Junos OS creates and maintains the actual size configured by
user. However, the length it maintains is 13 octets. For lower the size MA name, the
value accessed is not deterministic. It would work fine if the subsequent memory is
initialized to zero. Otherwise, it will declare cross-connect error as the accessed MA
name to be different compared to the remote end. PR1041482

Junos OS reserves the prefix "junos-" for the identifiers of configurations defined within

user-defined identifiers through the CLI using the reserved prefix, the commit would
incorrectly succeed. This issue is fixed in 13.3R1 and above releases, configurations that
currently contain the reserved prefix for user-defined identifiers other than
junos-defaults configuration group identifiers will now correctly result in a commit
error in the CLI. But these different behaviors will block software upgrade from Junos

Problem Description The problem is that MSDP is periodically polling PIM for S,G's to
determine if the S,G is still active. This check helps MSDP determine if the source is
active and therefore the SA still be sent. There is a possibility that PIM will return that
the S,G is no longer active which causes MSDP to remove the MSDP state and notify
MVPN to remove the Type 5. One of the checks PIM makes is to determine if it is the
local RP for the S,G. During a re-configuration period where any commit is done, PIM
re-evaluates whether it is a local RP. It waits until all the configuration is read and all
the interfaces have come up before making this determination. The local rp state is
cleared out early in this RP re-evaluation process, however, which allows for a window
of time where the local RP state was cleared out but it has not yet been re-evaluated.
During this window PIM may believe it is not the local rp and return FALSE to MSDP
for the given source. If MSDP makes the call into PIM during this window after a
configuration change(commit), then it is possible that the Source Active(Type 5) state
will be removed. Fix The fix will be to clear out the local rp state right before it is
re-evaluated ie after it reads configuration for all interfaces; to not allow any time gap
where it could be inconsistent. PR1015155

The following items describe updates for aggregated multiservices (AMS) interfaces
information:
•
The description for the rejoin-timeout statement under the hierarchy [edit interfaces
interface-name load-balancing-options member-failure-options drop-member-traffic]
should be changed to the following:
Configure the time by when failed members (members in the DISCARD state) should
rejoin the aggregated multiservices (AMS) interface automatically. All members
that do not rejoin by the configured time are moved to the INACTIVE state, and the
traffic meant for each of the members is dropped.
If multiple members fail around the same time, then they are held in the DISCARD
state using a single timer. When the timer expires, all the failed members move to
INACTIVE state at the same time.
•
242
The following information should be added to the “Aggregated Multiservices
Interface” section in the “Understanding Aggregated Multiservices Interfaces” topic:
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Documentation Updates
Member interfaces are identified as mams in the configuration. The chassisd process
in routers that support AMS configuration creates a mams entry for every multiservices
interface on the router.
When you configure services-options at the ams interface level, the options apply to
all member interfaces (mams) for the ams interface.
The options also apply to service sets configured on ms- interfaces corresponding
to the ams interface’s member interfaces. All settings are per PIC. For example,
session-limit applies per member and not at an aggregate level.
NOTE: You cannot configure services-options at both the ams
(aggregate) and member-interface level. If services-options is configured
on ms-x/y/z, it also applies to service sets on mams-x/y/z.
When you want services-options settings to apply uniformly to all
members, configure services-options at the ams interface level. If you
need different settings for individual members (for example, because of
a syslog configuration), configure services-options at the
member-interface level.
•
The show interfaces load-balancing command topic should include the following
description for Last change in the table:
Time elapsed since the last change to the interface. Changes that affect the elapsed
time displayed include internal events that might not have changed the state of any
member.
•
The “Configuring Secured Port Block Allocation,” “port,” and
“secured-port-block-allocation” topics should include the following note:
If you make any configuration changes to a NAT pool that has secured port block
allocation configured, you must delete the existing NAT address pool, wait at least 5
seconds, and then configure a new NAT address pool. We also strongly recommend
that you perform this procedure if you make any changes to the NAT pool configuration,
even if you do not have secured port block allocation configured.
•
The descriptions in the “Options” section of the IPsec protocol statement at the [edit
services ipsec-vpn ipsec proposal proposal-name] and [edit services ipsec-vpn rule
rule-name term term-name then manual direction direction] hierarchy levels fail to state
that the ah and bundle options are not supported on MS-MPCs and MS-MICs on MX
Series routers.
Broadband Subscriber VLANs and Interfaces Feature Guide
•
The table in topic “AAA Access Messages and Supported RADIUS Attributes and Juniper
Networks VSAs for Junos OS,” incorrectly indicates that VSA 26-1 (Virtual-Router)
supports CoA Request messages. VSA 26-1 does not support CoA Request messages.
•
The show subscribers topic in the Broadband Subscriber VLANs and Interfaces Feature
Guide does not fully describe the vlan-id vlan-id option. This option displays information
about active subscribers using a VLAN where the VLAN tag matches the specified
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
VLAN ID. The topic fails to mention that these subscriber VLANs can be either
single-tagged or double-tagged. The command output includes information about
subscribers using double-tagged VLANs when the inner VLAN tag matches the specified
VLAN ID. The command output does not distinguish between these two types of
subscribers.
To display only subscribers where the specified value matches only double-tagged
VLANs, use the stacked-vlan-id stacked-vlan-id option to match the outer VLAN tag
instead of the vlan-id vlan-id option.
High Availability Feature Guide for Routing Devices
•
The "Nonstop Active Routing System Requirements" topic should include the inet-mvpn
and inet6-mvpn protocol families for BGP in the list of supported family types. The
topic previously documented that NSR supports next-generation MVPN starting with
Junos OS 14.1R1, but didn't include the specific names of the next-generation MVPN
protocol families in the list.
•
The topic “Improving the Convergence Time for VRRP” failed to include the following
information:
•
Disable duplication address detection for IPv6 interfaces—Duplicate address
detection is a feature of the Neighbor Discovery Protocol for IPv6. Duplicate address
detection is enabled by default and determines whether an address is already in use
by another node. When duplicate address detection is enabled, convergence time
is high after an IPv6 interface that has been configured for VRRP tracking comes up.
To disable duplicate address detection, include the ipv6-duplicate-addr-translation
transmits 0 statement at the [edit system internet-options] hierarchy level. To disable
duplicate address detection only for a specific interface, include the dad-disable
statement at the [edit interfaces interface-name unit logical-unit-number family inet6]
hierarchy level.
Monitoring, Sampling, and Collection Services Interfaces Feature Guide for Routing
Devices
•
The Options section for the flow-export-rate statement under the hierarchy [edit
forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name family inet output inline-jlow] did
not include the default value. The default value is:
Default: 1 for each Packet Forwarding Engine on the FPC to which the sampling instance
is applied.
•
The default value for the ipv6-flow-table-size statement at the [edit chassis fpc
slot-number inline-services ipv6 flow-table-size] hierarchy level should state the
following:
“If the number of units is not specified, 1024 flow entries are allocated for IPv6.”
•

•
The “Configuring RPM Timestamping” topic failed to mention that RPM timestamping
is also supported on the MS-MPCs and MS-MICs on MX Series routers.
MPLS Applications Feature Guide for Routing Devices
•
The "Configuring Miscellaneous LDP Properties," "Configuring the Authentication Key
Update Mechanism for BGP and LDP Routing Protocols," "authentication-key-chain

following information: You must also configure the authentication algorithm using the
authentication-algorithm algorithm statement. This statement must be included at the
[edit protocols (bgp | ldp)] hierarchy level when you configure the
authentication-key-chain key-chain statement at the [edit protocols (bgp | ldp)] hierarchy
level.
•
The "Path Computation for LSPs on an Overloaded Router" topic should state that
when you set the overload bit on a router running IS-IS, only new LSPs are prevented
from transiting through the router. Any existing Constrained Path Shortest First (CPSF)
LSPs remain active and continue to transit through the router. The documentation
incorrectly states that any existing LSPs transiting through the router are also rerouted
when you configure the overload bit on an IS-IS router.
Overview for Routing Devices
•
The "Configuring Automatic Mirroring of the CompactFlash Card on the Hard Disk
Drive" and the "mirror-flash-on-disk" topics should not include support for MX5, MX10,
and MX40 3D Universal Edge Routers. On the MX Series, this feature is supported only
on the MX104, MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, and MX2020 routers.

The table in the “Firewall Filter Nonterminating Actions” topic failed to mention that
Juniper Networks recommends you do not use the nonterminating firewall filter action
next-hop-group with the port-mirror-instance or port-mirror action in the same firewall
filter.
Services Interfaces Configuration Guide
•
The following information regarding the restriction on prefix lengths that can be
configured in NAT pools on MS-MPCs and MS-MICs applies to the "Configuring Source
and Destination Addresses Network Address Translation Overview " section of the
"Network Address Translation Rules Overiew" topic:
On MX Series routers with MS-MPCs and MS-MICs, if you configure a NAT address
pool with a prefix length that is equal to or greater than /16, the PIC does not contain
sufficient memory to provision the configured pool. Also, memory utilization problems
might occur if you attempt to configure many pools whose combined total IP addresses
exceed /16. In such circumstances, a system logging message is generated stating that
the NAT pool name has failed to be created and that the service set is not activated.
On MS-MPCs and MS-MICs, you must not configure NAT pools with prefix lengths
greater than /16.
Standards Reference
•
The Supported Network Management Standards topic incorrectly states that Junos OS
supports mplsL3VpnIfConfTable as part of compliance with RFC 4382, MPLS/BGP
Layer 3 Virtual Private Network (VPN) MIB. Junos OS does not support this table.

The LAC Tunnel Selection Overview, Configuring Weighted Load Balancing for LAC Tunnel
Sessions and weighted-load-balancing (L2TP LAC) topics in the Junos OS Broadband
Subscriber Management and Services libraries incorrectly describe how weighted load
balancing works on an L2TP LAC. The topics state that the tunnel with the highest
weight (highest session limit) within a preference level is selected until it has reached
its maximum sessions limit, and then the tunnel with the next higher weight is selected,
and so on.
In fact, when weighted load balancing is configured, tunnels are selected randomly
within a preference level, but the distribution of selected tunnels is related to their
weight. The LAC generates a random number within a range equal to the aggregate
total of all session limits for all tunnels in the preference level. Portions of the
range—pools of numbers—are associated with the tunnels according to their weight;
a higher weight results in a larger pool. The random number is more likely to be in a
larger pool, so a tunnel with a higher weight (larger pool) is more likely to be selected
than a tunnel with a lower weight (smaller pool).
For example, consider a level that has only two tunnels, A and B. Tunnel A has a
maximum sessions limit of 1000 and tunnel B has a limit of 2000 sessions, resulting
in an aggregate total of 3000 sessions. The LAC generates a random number in the
range from 0 through 2999. A pool of 1000 numbers, the portion of the range from 0
through 999, is associated with tunnel A. A pool of 2000 numbers, the portion of the
range from 1000 through 2999, is associated with tunnel B. If the generated number
is less than 1000, then tunnel A is selected, even though it has a lower weight than
tunnel B. If the generated number is 1000 or larger, then tunnel B is selected. Because
the pool of possible generated numbers for tunnel B (2000) is twice that for tunnel A
(1000), tunnel B is, on average, selected twice as often as tunnel A.

The Pseudowire Subscriber Logical Interfaces Overview and Configuring a Pseudowire
Subscriber Logical Interface topics have been updated in Junos OS Release 14.2R6 to
state that VLAN demux interfaces are not supported over pseudowire subscriber logical
interfaces. Earlier versions of these topics omitted this information.

The following topics erroneously include information about the Ignore-DF-Bit VSA
(26-70): “RADIUS Attributes and Juniper Networks VSAs Supported by the AAA Service
Framework,” “Juniper Networks VSAs Supported by the AAA Service Framework”, and
“AAA Access Messages and Supported RADIUS Attributes and Juniper Networks VSAs
for Junos OS.” Junos OS does not support VSA 26-70.
Some versions of the RADIUS dictionary file also erroneously list 26-70 as supported
by the Junos OS.
•
In the Broadband Subscriber Sessions Feature Guide, the show network-access aaa
radius servers command topic includes a table that describes the output fields for the
command. The table entry for the Status field does not clearly explain when a request
starts and ends.
The following information has been added to the NOTE in that table entry:
For the purpose of marking a server as Down (DEAD), the request includes the original
request and any retries that are configured. The 10-second timeout period starts after
the initial request and all retries have expired without receiving a response from the
server.
The amount of the timeout period that elapses before the server is marked Down is
not always exactly 10 seconds, and can vary depending on how frequently subscribers
are logging in. When subscribers are continually and rapidly logging in, the server is
marked as Down at 10 seconds. However, if subscribers are logging in less frequently
and at a slower pace, then the server is not marked Down until a subsequent subscriber
attempts to log in. For example, if the subsequent subscriber logs in a minute after the
request and all retries lapse, and the 10-second timeout starts, the actual time until
the server is marked Down is 50 seconds after the timeout starts (the one minute
between subscriber login minus the 10-second timeout).

Basic Procedure for Upgrading to Release 14.2
In order to upgrade to Junos OS 10.0 or later, you must be running Junos OS 9.0S2, 9.1S1,
9.2R4, 9.3R3, 9.4R3, 9.5R1, or later minor versions, or you must specify the no-validate
option on the request system software install command.
When upgrading or downgrading Junos OS, always use the jinstall package. Use other
packages (such as the jbundle package) only when so instructed by a Juniper Networks
support representative. For information about the contents of the jinstall package and
details of the installation process, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
NOTE: With Junos OS Release 9.0 and later, the compact flash disk memory
requirement for Junos OS is 1 GB. For M7i and M10i routers with only 256 MB
memory, see the Customer Support Center JTAC Technical Bulletin

Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
NOTE: Before upgrading, back up the file system and the currently active
Junos OS configuration so that you can recover to a known, stable
environment in case the upgrade is unsuccessful. Issue the following
command:
user@host> request system snapshot
The installation process rebuilds the file system and completely reinstalls
Junos OS. Configuration information from the previous software installation
is retained, but the contents of log files might be erased. Stored files on the
routing platform, such as configuration templates and shell scripts (the only
exceptions are the juniper.conf and ssh files) might be removed. To preserve
the stored files, copy them to another system before upgrading or
downgrading the routing platform. For more information, see the Junos OS
Administration Library for Routing Devices.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
The download and installation process for Junos OS Release 14.2 is different from previous
Junos OS releases.
1.
Using a Web browser, navigate to the All Junos Platforms software download URL on
the Juniper Networks webpage:
http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/
2. Select the name of the Junos platform for the software that you want to download.
3. Select the release number (the number of the software version that you want to
download) from the Release drop-down list to the right of the Download Software
page.
4. Select the Software tab.
5. In the Install Package section of the Software tab, select the software package for the
release.
6. Log in to the Juniper Networks authentication system using the username (generally
your e-mail address) and password supplied by Juniper Networks representatives.
7. Review and accept the End User License Agreement.
8. Download the software to a local host.
9. Copy the software to the routing platform or to your internal software distribution
site.
10. Install the new jinstall package on the routing platform.
NOTE: We recommend that you upgrade all software packages out of
band using the console because in-band connections are lost during the
upgrade process.
Customers in the United States and Canada, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-14.2R6.5-domestic-signed.tgz
All other customers, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-14.2R6.5-export-signed.tgz
Replace source with one of the following values:
•
/pathname—For a software package that is installed from a local directory on the
router.
•
252
For software packages that are downloaded and installed from a remote location:
•
ftp://hostname/pathname
•
http://hostname/pathname
•
scp://hostname/pathname (available only for Canada and U.S. version)
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
The validate option validates the software package against the current configuration
as a prerequisite to adding the software package to ensure that the router reboots
successfully. This is the default behavior when the software package being added is
a different release.
Adding the reboot command reboots the router after the upgrade is validated and
installed. When the reboot is complete, the router displays the login prompt. The
loading process can take 5 to 10 minutes.
Rebooting occurs only if the upgrade is successful.
NOTE: After you install a Junos OS Release 14.2 jinstall package, you cannot
issue the request system software rollback command to return to the previously
installed software. Instead you must issue the request system software add
validate command and specify the jinstall package that corresponds to the
previously installed software.
Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases
Support for upgrades and downgrades that span more than three Junos OS releases at
a time is not provided, except for releases that are designated as Extended End-of-Life
(EEOL) releases. EEOL releases provide direct upgrade and downgrade paths—you can
upgrade directly from one EEOL release to the next EEOL release even though EEOL
releases generally occur in increments beyond three releases.
You can upgrade or downgrade to the EEOL release that occurs directly before or after
the currently installed EEOL release, or to two EEOL releases before or after. For example,
Junos OS Releases 11.4, 12.3, and 13.3 are EEOL releases. You can upgrade from Junos OS
Release 11.4 to Release 12.3 or even from Junos OS Release 11.4 to Release 13.3. However,
you cannot upgrade directly from a non-EEOL release that is more than three releases
ahead or behind. For example, you cannot directly upgrade from Junos OS Release 12.1
(a non-EEOL release) to Junos OS Release 13.3 or directly downgrade from Junos OS
Release 13.3 to Junos OS Release 12.1.
To upgrade or downgrade from a non-EEOL release to a release more than three releases
before or after, first upgrade to the next EEOL release and then upgrade or downgrade
from that EEOL release to your target release.
For more information on EEOL releases and to review a list of EEOL releases, see
http://www.juniper.net/support/eol/junos.html
Upgrading a Router with Redundant Routing Engines
If the router has two Routing Engines, perform a Junos OS installation on each Routing
Engine separately to avoid disrupting network operation as follows:
1.
Disable graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) on the master Routing Engine
and save the configuration change to both Routing Engines.
2. Install the new Junos OS release on the backup Routing Engine while keeping the
currently running software version on the master Routing Engine.

3. After making sure that the new software version is running correctly on the backup
Routing Engine, switch over to the backup Routing Engine to activate the new software.
4. Install the new software on the original master Routing Engine that is now active as
the backup Routing Engine.
For the detailed procedure, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
Upgrading Juniper Network Routers Running Draft-Rosen Multicast VPN to Junos
OS Release 10.1
In releases prior to Junos OS Release 10.1, the draft-rosen multicast VPN feature
implements the unicast lo0.x address configured within that instance as the source
address used to establish PIM neighbors and create the multicast tunnel. In this mode,
the multicast VPN loopback address is used for reverse path forwarding (RPF) route
resolution to create the reverse path tree (RPT), or multicast tunnel. The multicast VPN
loopback address is also used as the source address in outgoing PIM control messages.
In Junos OS Release 10.1 and later, you can use the router’s main instance loopback
(lo0.0) address (rather than the multicast VPN loopback address) to establish the PIM
state for the multicast VPN. We strongly recommend that you perform the following
procedure when upgrading to Junos OS Release 10.1 if your draft-rosen multicast VPN
network includes both Juniper Network routers and other vendors’ routers functioning
as provider edge (PE) routers. Doing so preserves multicast VPN connectivity throughout
the upgrade process.
Because Junos OS Release 10.1 supports using the router’s main instance loopback (lo0.0)
address, it is no longer necessary for the multicast VPN loopback address to match the
main instance loopback adddress lo0.0 to maintain interoperability.
NOTE: You might want to maintain a multicast VPN instance lo0.x address
to use for protocol peering (such as IBGP sessions), or as a stable router
identifier, or to support the PIM bootstrap server function within the VPN
instance.
Complete the following steps when upgrading routers in your draft-rosen multicast VPN
network to Junos OS Release 10.1 if you want to configure the routers’s main instance
loopback address for draft-rosen multicast VPN:
1.
Upgrade all M7i and M10i routers to Junos OS Release 10.1 before you configure the
loopback address for draft-rosen Multicast VPN.
NOTE: Do not configure the new feature until all the M7i and M10i routers
in the network have been upgraded to Junos OS Release 10.1.
2. After you have upgraded all routers, configure each router’s main instance loopback
address as the source address for multicast interfaces. Include the default-vpn-source
interface-name loopback-interface-name] statement at the [edit protocols pim]
hierarchy level.

Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
3. After you have configured the router’s main loopback address on each PE router,
delete the multicast VPN loopback address (lo0.x) from all routers.
We also recommend that you remove the multicast VPN loopback address from all
PE routers from other vendors. In Junos OS releases prior to 10.1, to ensure
interoperability with other vendors’ routers in a draft-rosen multicast VPN network,
you had to perform additional configuration. Remove that configuration from both
the Juniper Networks routers and the other vendors’ routers. This configuration should
be on Juniper Networks routers and on the other vendors’ routers where you configured
the lo0.mvpn address in each VRF instance as the same address as the main loopback
(lo0.0) address.
This configuration is not required when you upgrade to Junos OS Release 10.1 and use
the main loopback address as the source address for multicast interfaces.
NOTE: To maintain a loopback address for a specific instance, configure
a loopback address value that does not match the main instance address
(lo0.0).
For more information about configuring the draft-rosen Multicast VPN feature, see the
Multicast Protocols Feature Guide for Routing Devices.
Upgrading the Software for a Routing Matrix
A routing matrix can be either a TX Matrix router as the switch-card chassis (SCC) or a
TX Matrix Plus router as the switch-fabric chassis (SFC). By default, when you upgrade
software for a TX Matrix router or a TX Matrix Plus router, the new image is loaded onto
the TX Matrix or TX Matrix Plus router (specified in the Junos OS CLI by using the scc or
sfc option) and distributed to all line-card chassis (LCCs) in the routing matrix (specified
in the Junos OS CLI by using the lcc option). To avoid network disruption during the
upgrade, ensure the following conditions before beginning the upgrade process:
•
A minimum of free disk space and DRAM on each Routing Engine. The software upgrade
will fail on any Routing Engine without the required amount of free disk space and
DRAM. To determine the amount of disk space currently available on all Routing Engines
of the routing matrix, use the CLI show system storage command. To determine the
amount of DRAM currently available on all the Routing Engines in the routing matrix,
use the CLI show chassis routing-engine command.
•
The master Routing Engines of the TX Matrix or TX Matrix Plus router (SCC or SFC)
and all LCCs connected to the SCC or SFC are all re0 or are all re1.
•
The backup Routing Engines of the TX Matrix or TX Matrix Plus router (SCC or SFC)
and all LCCs connected to the SCC or SFC are all re1 or are all re0.
•
All master Routing Engines in all routers run the same version of software. This is
necessary for the routing matrix to operate.
•
All master and backup Routing Engines run the same version of software before
beginning the upgrade procedure. Different versions of the Junos OS can have
incompatible message formats especially if you turn on GRES. Because the steps in
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
255
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
the process include changing mastership, running the same version of software is
recommended.
•
For a routing matrix with a TX Matrix router, the same Routing Engine model is used
within a TX Matrix router (SCC) and within a T640 router (LCC) of a routing matrix.
For example, a routing matrix with an SCC using two RE-A-2000s and an LCC using
two RE-1600s is supported. However, an SCC or an LCC with two different Routing
Engine models is not supported. We suggest that all Routing Engines be the same
model throughout all routers in the routing matrix. To determine the Routing Engine
type, use the CLI show chassis hardware | match routing command.
•
For a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router, the SFC contains two model
RE-DUO-C2600-16G Routing Engines, and each LCC contains two model
RE-DUO-C1800-8G or RE-DUO-C1800-16G Routing Engines.
BEST PRACTICE: Make sure that all master Routing Engines are re0 and all
backup Routing Engines are re1 (or vice versa). For the purposes of this
document, the master Routing Engine is re0 and the backup Routing Engine
is re1.
To upgrade the software for a routing matrix, perform the following steps:
1.
Disable graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) on the master Routing Engine
(re0) and save the configuration change to both Routing Engines.
2. Install the new Junos OS release on the backup Routing Engine (re1) while keeping
the currently running software version on the master Routing Engine (re0).
3. Load the new Junos OS on the backup Routing Engine. After making sure that the new
software version is running correctly on the backup Routing Engine (re1), switch
mastership back to the original master Routing Engine (re0) to activate the new
software.
4. Install the new software on the new backup Routing Engine (re0).
For the detailed procedure, see the Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Router Deployment Guide
or the Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router Deployment Guide.
Upgrading Using Unified ISSU
Unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU) enables you to upgrade between two different
Junos OS releases with no disruption on the control plane and with minimal disruption
of traffic. Unified in-service software upgrade is only supported by dual Routing Engine
platforms. In addition, graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) and nonstop active
routing (NSR) must be enabled. For additional information about using unified in-service
software upgrade, see the High Availability Feature Guide for Routing Devices.

Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
Upgrading from Junos OS Release 9.2 or Earlier on a Router Enabled for Both PIM
and NSR
Junos OS Release 9.3 introduced NSR support for PIM for IPv4 traffic. However, the
following PIM features are not currently supported with NSR. The commit operation fails
if the configuration includes both NSR and one or more of these features:
•
Anycast RP
•
Draft-Rosen multicast VPNs (MVPNs)
•
Local RP
•
Next-generation MVPNs with PIM provider tunnels
•
PIM join load balancing
Junos OS Release 9.3 introduced a new configuration statement that disables NSR for
PIM only, so that you can activate incompatible PIM features and continue to use NSR
for the other protocols on the router: the nonstop-routing disable statement at the [edit
protocols pim] hierarchy level. (Note that this statement disables NSR for all PIM features,
not only incompatible features.)
If neither NSR nor PIM is enabled on the router to be upgraded or if one of the unsupported
PIM features is enabled but NSR is not enabled, no additional steps are necessary and
you can use the standard upgrade procedure described in other sections of these
instructions. If NSR is enabled and no NSR-incompatible PIM features are enabled, use
the standard reboot or ISSU procedures described in the other sections of these
instructions.
Because the nonstop-routing disable statement was not available in Junos OS Release
9.2 and earlier, if both NSR and an incompatible PIM feature are enabled on a router to
be upgraded from Junos OS Release 9.2 or earlier to a later release, you must disable
PIM before the upgrade and reenable it after the router is running the upgraded Junos
OS and you have entered the nonstop-routing disable statement. If your router is running
Junos OS Release 9.3 or later, you can upgrade to a later release without disabling NSR
or PIM–simply use the standard reboot or ISSU procedures described in the other sections
of these instructions.
To disable and reenable PIM:
1.
On the router running Junos OS Release 9.2 or earlier, enter configuration mode and
disable PIM:
[edit]
user@host# deactivate protocols pim
user@host# commit
2. Upgrade to Junos OS Release 9.3 or later software using the instructions appropriate
for the router type. You can either use the standard procedure with reboot or use ISSU.
3. After the router reboots and is running the upgraded Junos OS, enter configuration
mode, disable PIM NSR with the nonstop-routing disable statement, and then reenable
PIM:

Downgrading from Release 14.2
To downgrade from Release 14.2 to another supported release, follow the procedure for
upgrading, but replace the 14.2 jinstall package with one that corresponds to the
appropriate release.
NOTE: You cannot downgrade more than three releases. For example, if your
routing platform is running Junos OS Release 11.4, you can downgrade the
software to Release 10.4 directly, but not to Release 10.3 or earlier; as a
workaround, you can first downgrade to Release 10.4 and then downgrade
to Release 10.3.
For more information, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
Changes Planned for Future Releases
•
Introduction of the all keyword to prevent accidental execution of certain clear
commands—The all keyword is introduced in Junos OS Release 14.2 (as an optional
keyword) and is planned to be introduced in Junos OS Release 15.2 (as a mandatory
keyword) for certain clear commands that are used for clearing protocol and neighbor
sessions. This makes users explicitly select the all keyword to clear all protocol or
session information. Thus, it prevents accidental clearing or resetting of protocols or
neighbor sessions, which might disrupt network operations.
The all keyword is planned to be introduced for the following clear commands:
258
•
clear arp
•
clear bgp neighbor
•
clear bfd adaptation
•
clear bfd session
•
clear igmp membership
•
clear isis adjacency
•
clear isis database
•
clear ldp neighbor
•
clear ldp session
•
clear mld membership
•
clear mpls lsp
•
clear msdp cache
•

clear (ospf | ospf3) database
•
clear (ospf | ospf3) neighbor
•
clear pim join
•
clear pim join-distribution
•

•
clear rsvp sessions
In Junos OS Release 14.2 and Release 15.1—The all keyword is optional. When you
type any of these clear commands followed by the ? in the CLI, the all keyword is listed
as an option after the <[Enter]> keyword. You can execute the clear command directly
or with the all keyword to clear all information. For example, when you type clear mpls
lsp ?, the following possible completions are displayed:
user@host> clear mpls lsp ?
Possible completions:
<[Enter]>
Execute this command
all
Reset 'all' the nontransit or egress LSPs
originating on this router
<<<<<<<<<<<<

...
Both clear mpls lsp or clear mpls lsp all will function identically in these releases.
In Junos OS Release 15.2 and later—The all keyword is mandatory. When you type a
clear command followed by the ? in the CLI, the <[Enter]> option to execute the
command directly (without specifying any options) is not available.
For example, when you type clear mpls lsp ?, you see all listed as an option but not
<[Enter]> to execute the command directly. You have to type clear mpls lsp all and
then press <[Enter]> if you want to clear information about all the nontransit or egress
LSPs originating on the router.

•
Support for REST interfaces (PTX Series)— Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2, PTX
Series routers support REST interfaces for secure connection to Junos OS devices and
execution of remote procedure calls, a REST API Explorer GUI enabling you to
conveniently experiment with any of the REST APIs, and a variety of formatting and
display options, including JSON support.
[See REST API Guide.]
•
Synchronous Ethernet clock synchronization (PTX Series)—Beginning with Junos
OS Release 14.2, Synchronous Ethernet clock synchronization is supported on the PTX
Series router. This feature enables the selection of the best timing source based upon
the Synchronization Status Message (SSM) TLV carried in the Ethernet Synchronization
Message Channel (ESMC), specified in ITU-T G.8264. This selection process is used
when primary and secondary clock sources are not already configured by the user.
[See Configuring an External Clock Synchronization Interface for PTX Series Packet
Transport Routers.]
•
Support for mixed-rate aggregated Ethernet bundles (PTX Series)—Beginning with
Junos OS Release 14.2, bundling of mixed-rate links is supported on the same
aggregated Ethernet interface on the PTX Series router. This feature supports
aggregated Ethernet bundles composed of links with differing line speeds (10G, 40G,
and 100G) on the same aggregated Ethernet interface, enabling egress unicast traffic
load balancing based upon the egress link rate.
NOTE: Mixed-rate aggregated Ethernet bundling is not applicable to
multicast traffic.

upgrade (ISSU) is supported on the FPC2-PTX-P1A FPC and on the P2-100GE-CFP2
PIC in PTX5000 routers. Unified ISSU enables you to upgrade from an earlier Junos
OS release to a later one with no disruption on the control plane and with minimal
disruption of traffic.
•
Support for dual-rate speed (PTX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 13.3R3, 14.1R3,
14.2R2, and later for PTX3000, and Junos OS 14.2R2 and later for PTX5000, support
for dual rate for the 24-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet PIC (P1-PTX-24-10GE-SFPP) enables
you to switch all port speeds to either 1-Gigabit Ethernet or 10-Gigabit Ethernet. The
default is 10 Gbps. All ports are configured to the same speed; there is no
mixed-rate-mode capability. You can use either the SFP-1GE-SX or the SFP-1GE-LX
transceiver for 1 Gbps. Changing the port speed causes the PIC to reboot.
To configure all ports on the P1-PTX-24-10GE-SFPP to operate at 1 Gbps, use the speed
1G statement at the [edit chassis fpc fpc-number pic pic-number] hierarchy level. To
return all ports to the 10-Gbps speed, use the delete chassis fpc fpc-number pic
pic-number speed 1G command.

http://www.juniper.net/. You can also generate a YANG module that defines the
device-specific configuration hierarchy by using the show system schema module
configuration format yang operational mode command on the local device. The Juniper
Networks YANG module, configuration, is bound to the namespace URI
http://yang.juniper.net/yang/1.1/jc and uses the prefix jc.
[See Understanding YANG on Devices Running Junos OS.]
MPLS
•
Egress peer engineering of service labels (BGP, MPLS) and egress peer protection
for BGP-LU (PTX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, you can enable
traffic engineering of service traffic, such as MPLS LSP traffic between autonomous
systems (ASs), using BGP-labeled unicast for optimum utilization of the advertised
egress routes. You can specify one or more backup devices for the primary egress AS
boundary router. Junos OS installs the backup path in addition to the primary path in
the MPLS forwarding table, which enables MPLS fast reroute (FRR) when the primary
link fails.
[See Egress Peer Protection for Labeled BGP Overview.]
Multicast
•
Multicast make-before-break feature (PTX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release
14.2, multicast make-before-break (MBB) transitioning between Multicast Beam Table
(MBT) trees is supported on PTX Series routers. This feature improves multicast
performance by making the new tree before breaking the existing tree, minimizing the
amount of multicast traffic dropped during the transition.
[See Multicast Overview.]
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Enhancements to SNMP statistics operational mode commands (PTX
Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can use the show snmp
stats-response-statistics command to view the statistics of SNMP statistics responses
sent from the Packet Forwarding Engine during the MIB II process (mib2d). In addition,
you can use the subagents option in the show snmp statistics command to view the
statistics of the protocol data units (PDUs) and the number of SNMP requests and
responses per subagent. The subagents option also helps you to view the SNMP
statistics received from each subagent per logical system.
[See show snmp stats-response-time and show snmp statistics.]

New and Changed Features
•
Enhancement to reduce the time taken for performing system commit (PTX
Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2, you can configure the delta-export
statement at the [edit system commit] hierarchy level to reduce the time taken to
commit the configuration changes.
[See commit (system) and delta-export.]
Routing Policy and Firewall Filters
•
Input filter-based forwarding (PTX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2,
filter-based forwarding on ingress traffic is supported on the PTX Series router. This
feature enables the user to configure a filter that classifies packet flows based upon
packet fields and redirect the packets through different user-configured forwarding
tables. Input filter-based forwarding is supported for IPv4 and IPv6 traffic only.
[See Filter-Based Forwarding Overview.]
•
New walkup statement available (PTX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, a
new walkup feature is available. The walkup feature allows the user to change the
default route filter prefix match behavior, so that the evaluation walks up multiple
route filters contained within a single policy term, in order to allow matches on terms
other than the default longest match. This can be applied globally or locally to a single
policy. This feature can be configured in the main routing instance and in logical systems,
but not in routing instances.
•
Support for logical queue-depth in the PFE for IP options packets for a given protocol
(PTX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R6, you can configure logical
queue-depth in the PFE for IP options packets for a given protocol. The queue-depth
indicates the number of IP options packets which can be enqueued in the PFE logical
queue, beyond which it would start dropping the packets.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
Routing Protocols
•
Remote LFA support for LDP in IS-IS (PTX Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release
14.2, you can configure a remote loop-free alternate (LFA) to extend the backup
provided by the LFA in an IS-IS network. This feature is useful especially for Layer 1
metro-rings where the remote LFA is not directly connected to the PLR. The existing
LDP implemented for the MPLS tunnel setup can be reused for the protection of IS-IS
networks and subsequent LDP destinations, eliminating the need for RSVP-TE backup
tunnels for backup coverage.
To configure remote LFA over LDP tunnels, include the remote-backup-calculation
statement at the [edit protocols isis backup-spf-options] hierarchy level and the
auto-targeted-session statement at the [edit protocols ldp] hierarchy level.
[See Example: Configuring Remote LFA over LDP Tunnels in IS-IS Networks.]
Software Installation and Upgrade
•
Unified ISSU support (PTX3000)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R3, unified
in-service software upgrade (ISSU) is supported on the PTX3000 router. Unified ISSU
enables you to upgrade between two different Junos OS releases with no disruption
on the control plane and with minimal disruption of traffic. Unified ISSU is not supported
on the P1-PTX-24-10G-W-SFPP PIC.
[See Unified ISSU System Requirements.]
User Interface and Configuration
•
Support for allowing commands in a Junos OS op script (PTX Series)—Starting with
Junos OS Release 14.2, you can specify a regular expression that defines which
commands to explicitly allow during execution of a Junos OS op script. The commands
that you specify are performed even if a user login class denies that command. The
permission to perform commands within a script applies to all users.
[See Defining Commands to Allow in an Op Script.]

•
Change to interpolated WRED drop probability (PTX Series)—In Junos OS Releases
13.2R4, 13.3R2, and 14.1 and later releases, the interpolated fill level of 0 percent has a
drop probability of 0 percent for weighted random early detection (WRED). In earlier
Junos OS releases, interpolated WRED can have a nonzero drop probability for a fill
level of 0 percent, which can cause packets to be dropped even when the queue is not
congested or the port is not oversubscribed.
ipv6
•
IPv6 addresses with padded zeros in MIC or MS-MPC system log messages (PTX
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, all system log messages originating
from MIC or MS-MPC line cards displays padded zeros in IPv6 addresses to make them
compatible with MS-DPC line cards. Earlier, the system log messages from MIC or
MS-MPC line cards displayed IPv6 addresses with ’::’ instead of padded zeros.
Junos OS XML API and Scripting
•
Escaping of special XML characters required for request_login (PTX
Series)—Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.2R4, you must escape any special
characters in the username and password elements of a request_login XML RPC request.
The following five symbols are considered special characters: greater than (>), less
than (<), single quote (’), double quote (“), and ampersand (&). Both entity references
and character references are acceptable escape sequence formats. For example,
& and & are valid representations of an ampersand. Previously no escaping
of these characters was required.
Network Management and Monitoring
•
New system log message indicating the difference in the Packet Forwarding Engine
counter value (PTX Series)—In Junos OS Release 14.2R2 and later, if the counter value
of a Packet Forwarding Engine is reported lesser than its previous value, then the
residual counter value is added to the newly reported value only for that specific counter.
In that case, the CLI shows the MIB2D_COUNTER_DECREASING system log message
for that specific counter.

[See MIB2D_COUNTER_DECREASING.]
•
Enhancement for SONET interval counter (PTX Series)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.2R6, only the Current Day Interval Total output field in the show interfaces
interval command for SONET interfaces is reset after 24 hours. In addition, the Previous
Day Interval Total output field displays the last updated time in hh:mm.
[See show interfaces interval.]
Routing Protocols
•
Modification to the default BGP extended community value (PTX Series)—Starting
in Release 14.1, Junos OS has modified the default BGP extended community value
used for MVPN IPv4 VRF route import (RT-import) to the IANA-standardized value.
The default behavior has changed such that the behavior of the mvpn-iana-rt-import
statement has become the default. The mvpn-iana-rt-import statement is deprecated
and we recommend that you remove it from configurations.
•
OSPFv3-TTL propagation policy for TE-Shortcuts and FA-LSPs in line with other
modules in the system (PTX Series)—Starting in Junos OS Release 14.2, the
OSPFv3-TTL propagation policy is dictated by the MPLS-TTL propagation policy which,
by default, allows propagation of TTL.
This change makes the behavior of OSPFv3 in line with the default behavior of rest of
the system, allowing you to disable TTL propagation for the above mentioned LSPs,
and for traffic-engineering-shortcuts (TE-Shortcuts) and forwarding adjacency LSPs
(FA-LSPs) using OSPFv3 as the IGP, by configuring the no-propagate-ttl statement at
the [edit protocols mpls] hierarchy level.
User Interface and Configuration
•
Configuring regular expressions (PTX Series)—In all supported Junos OS releases,
you can no longer configure regular expressions if they require more than 64 MB of
memory or more than 256 recursions for parsing.
This change in the behavior of Junos OS is in line with the FreeBSD limit. The change
was made in response to a known consumption vulnerability that allows an attacker
to cause a denial-of-service (resource exhaustion) attack by using regular expressions
containing adjacent repetition operators or adjacent bounded repetitions. Junos OS
uses regular expressions in several places within the CLI. Exploitation of this vulnerability
can cause the Routing Engine to crash, leading to a partial denial of service. Repeated
exploitation can result in an extended partial outage of services provided by the routing
protocol process (rpd).
•
New warning message for the configurational changes to extend-size (PTX
Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.2R5, any operation on the system
configuration-database extend-size configuration statement, such as, deactivate, delete,
or set, generates the following warning message:
Change in 'system configuration-database extend-size' will be effective at next reboot
only.

Documentation
•
When we have two paths for the same route, the route gets pointed to Unilist NH which
in turn gets pointed to two separate Unicast NHs. The route is determined by OSPF
and we have BFD enabled on one of the paths, which runs through an l2circuit path.
When the link on the l2circuit gets cut, the link flap is informed by BFD as well as through
OSPF LSAs. Ideally the BFD should inform the link down event before the OSPF LSA.
But at the current situation, the OSPF LSAs update the current event a second before
BFD. Due to this reason, we do get the route to be pointing to a new Unilist NH with
the weights swapped. But the Unicast NH for which the L3 link is down, gets added to
the Unilist NH, the BFD assumes the link to be up, and hence updates the weights
inappropriately and hence we do see traffic loss. Once the BFD link down event is
processed at OSPF protocol level, now the route points to only Unicast NH and hence
we do see traffic flowing through the currently active link. The traffic outage would be
hardly for less than a second during FRR. Also, this can be avoided if the BFD keepalive
intervals are maintained around 50 ms with multiplier of 3 as opposed to 100 ms with
a multiplier of 3. PR1119253

Forwarding and Sampling
•
SRRD (Sampling Route-Record Daemon) process doesn't delete routes when the
DELETE is received from RPD in few configuration cases. This results in build-up of
memory in SRRD daemon and once SRRD reaches the limit, it crashes and restarts
itself. This happens only when one certain family is not configured on all of the FPC
clients (e.g., FPC with inline jflow enabled or PIC with PIC-based sampling enabled is
one client). For example, only IPv4 family is configured in all the clients, and IPv6 and
MPLS families are not configured for sampling in any of the clients. PR1180158

attempt is resulting in the software state for this SIB getting stuck in "transition" state
thereby resulting in all future offline/online commands to not take effect on this SIB.
Fixed software to check if there are any hard errors on that SIB before trying to bring it

In P2MP with NSR scenario, it might be observed about 100 ms traffic loss during
Routing Engine switchover in steady state with link protection enabled. It is because

When a switchover is done from one Routing Engine to the other, in graceful-switchover
redundancy mode, there is a brief period early in the transition of the SIB to online state,
during which unsoliciited (not corresponding to an attempt by the CPU to access the
SIB via PCIe) errors are received at the downstream PCIe port on the CB to the SIB.
The fix is to mute the generation of such errors during this brief period of the switchover.

errors are mostly seen when making the OTN related configuration change (e.g. set

•
On PTX Series platform with external clock synchronization interface configured, when
both BITS external clocks are disconnected at the same time, the 100GbE-LR4 FINISAR
interface might flap. This link flap issue is narrowed down to the operation of data-path
FIFO within CFP. When both the BITS clocks are disconnected, the reference clock
jumps to "free-running" mode. This transition leads to a phase shift in reference clock.
Due to this phase shift, the data rates into and out of the FIFO will temporarily not
match, leading to a FIFO over-run or under-run condition. This over-run or under-run
condition forces a FIFO reset, and the output signal is distorted. So the far-end interface
detects 'local-fault', then return 'remote-fault' back to the near-end, hence a link flap.
After change for this PR: - User need to manually config FPC recovered clock port for
each clock put into "chassis synchronization source". - Only one clock of each FPC can
be put into "chassis synchronization source". PR1091228

When there is link/node protection/ECMP for RSVP/LDP transit or egress LSPs with
huge scaling and continuous flapping of LSPs like auto-bandwidth case, traffic might
get black-holed upon LSP re-optimizations. The issue would get triggered if the same
unilist list-id (unilist list-id is a unique id for unilist nexthop) is allocated for two different
unilist forwarding topologies. This situation arises when the unilist list-id wraps around
after max value of 65535. After the wraparound, if there is a long living list-id (which
can be due to some node/link protected LSP that has not been re-optimized for a long
time), the Packet Forwarding Engine assigns the same list-id during allocation (upon
other LSP re-optimizations), and this will trigger the issue as the new unilist will be
directed to incorrect interface. PR1043747

Basic Procedure for Upgrading to Release 14.2 on page 284
Upgrading Using Unified ISSU
CAUTION: This release introduces some behavior changes to the unified
in-service software upgrade (ISSU) functionality for PTX Series routers. We
do not recommend using unified ISSU to upgrade from an earlier Junos OS
release to Junos OS Release 14.2.
Unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU) enables you to upgrade between two different
Junos OS releases with no disruption on the control plane and with minimal disruption
of traffic. Unified in-service software upgrade is only supported by dual Routing Engine
platforms. In addition, graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) and nonstop active
routing (NSR) must be enabled. For additional information about using unified in-service
software upgrade, see the High Availability Feature Guide for Routing Devices.
Upgrading a Router with Redundant Routing Engines
If the router has two Routing Engines, perform a Junos OS installation on each Routing
Engine separately to avoid disrupting network operation as follows:
1.
Disable graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) on the master Routing Engine
and save the configuration change to both Routing Engines.
2. Install the new Junos OS release on the backup Routing Engine while keeping the
currently running software version on the master Routing Engine.
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
283
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
3. After making sure that the new software version is running correctly on the backup
Routing Engine, switch over to the backup Routing Engine to activate the new software.
4. Install the new software on the original master Routing Engine that is now active as
the backup Routing Engine.
For the detailed procedure, see the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
Basic Procedure for Upgrading to Release 14.2
When upgrading or downgrading Junos OS, use the jinstall package. For information
about the contents of the jinstall package and details of the installation process, see the
Installation and Upgrade Guide. Use other packages, such as the jbundle package, only
when so instructed by a Juniper Networks support representative.
NOTE: Back up the file system and the currently active Junos OS configuration
before upgrading Junos OS. This allows you to recover to a known, stable
environment if the upgrade is unsuccessful. Issue the following command:
user@host> request system snapshot
NOTE: The installation process rebuilds the file system and completely
reinstalls Junos OS. Configuration information from the previous software
installation is retained, but the contents of log files might be erased. Stored
files on the router, such as configuration templates and shell scripts (the only
exceptions are the juniper.conf and ssh files), might be removed. To preserve
the stored files, copy them to another system before upgrading or
downgrading the routing platform. For more information, see the Junos OS
Administration Library for Routing Devices.
284
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
NOTE: We recommend that you upgrade all software packages out of band
using the console because in-band connections are lost during the upgrade
process.
The download and installation process for Junos OS Release 14.2 is different from previous
Junos OS releases.
1.
Using a Web browser, navigate to the All Junos Platforms software download URL
on the Juniper Networks webpage:
http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/
2. Select the name of the Junos OS platform for the software that you want to download.
3. Select the release number (the number of the software version that you want to
download) from the Release drop-down list to the right of the Download Software
page.
4. Select the Software tab.
5. In the Install Package section of the Software tab, select the software package for
the release.
6. Log in to the Juniper Networks authentication system using the username (generally
your e-mail address) and password supplied by Juniper Networks representatives.
7. Review and accept the End User License Agreement.
8. Download the software to a local host.
9. Copy the software to the routing platform or to your internal software distribution
site.
10. Install the new jinstall package on the router.
NOTE: After you install a Junos OS Release 14.2 jinstall package, you
cannot issue the request system software rollback command to return to
the previously installed software. Instead you must issue the request
system software add validate command and specify the jinstall package
that corresponds to the previously installed software.
The validate option validates the software package against the current configuration
as a prerequisite to adding the software package to ensure that the router reboots
successfully. This is the default behavior when the software package being added is
a different release. Adding the reboot command reboots the router after the upgrade
is validated and installed. When the reboot is complete, the router displays the login
prompt. The loading process can take 5 to 10 minutes. Rebooting occurs only if the
upgrade is successful.
Customers in the United States and Canada, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-14.2R5.5-domestic-signed.tgz
Copyright © 2016, Juniper Networks, Inc.
285
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.2R7 for the EX Series, M Series, MX Series, PTX Series, T Series, and Junos Fusion
All other customers, use the following command:
user@host> request system software add validate reboot
source/jinstall-14.2R5.5-export-signed.tgz
Replace the source with one of the following values:
•
/pathname—For a software package that is installed from a local directory on the
router.
•
For software packages that are downloaded and installed from a remote location:
•
ftp://hostname/pathname
•
http://hostname/pathname
•
scp://hostname/pathname (available only for Canada and U.S. version)
The validate option validates the software package against the current configuration
as a prerequisite to adding the software package to ensure that the router reboots
successfully. This is the default behavior when the software package being added is
a different release.
Adding the reboot command reboots the router after the upgrade is validated and
installed. When the reboot is complete, the router displays the login prompt. The
loading process can take 5 to 10 minutes.
Rebooting occurs only if the upgrade is successful.
NOTE: After you install a Junos OS Release 14.2 jinstall package, you cannot
issue the request system software rollback command to return to the previously
installed software. Instead you must issue the request system software add
validate command and specify the jinstall package that corresponds to the
previously installed software.
