[EX] Alarm LED is ON when rescue config is not saved starting with JUNOS 9.5R1



Article ID: KB15130 KB Last Updated: 25 Aug 2020Version: 3.0

How to save rescue config and clear LED Alarm indicator and system alarm "Minor Rescue configuration is not set".


Physical Alarm LED is indicating ON, but no alarm is showing when performing a 'show chassis alarm'.


When upgrading to JUNOS 9.5R1 for the EX series Switch the Alarm LED indicator is ON, but no alarm is showing when doing a `show chassis alarms`.  The 'show system alarms' will show the alarm "IST Minor Rescue configuration is not set".  To clear the rescue configuration alarm and physical LED Alarm you must save the rescue configuration.

JUNOS version 9.5R1 introduces alarm for rescue configuration not being saved.   This alarm is displayed under "show system alarms" and not "show chassis alarms".
Once the rescue configuration is saved the front panel alarm LED indicator should clear.

  • To save the rescue config use the following command:
user@switch> request system configuration rescue save

This should clear the front panel alarm LED indicator

If the alarm does not clear, please contact Juniper Technical Support (JTAC) for assistance.
