[SRX] Unable to save the rescue configuration on a 5800 cluster set

0

Article ID: KB23360 KB Last Updated: 05 Apr 2012Version: 1.0
Summary:
This article describes the issue of being unable to save the rescue configuration on a clustered pair of 5800s. Each node has two REs installed (to take advantage of a second control link).
Symptoms:
 When a second RE is present and an attempt is made to save the rescue configuration, the following response is received from the CLI:

{{primary:node0}[edit]
root@ndc-sec0# run request system configuration rescue save
error: Could not connect to unknown : No route to host
This gives the impression that something went wrong and the rescue configuration was not saved.
Cause:
 
Solution:
This is merely a superficial issue within JUNOS and does not indicate a problem. The rescue configuration is being saved and there is a convenient way to validate this from the CLI. The rescue configuration gets saved to the /config directory. You can run a file list command with the detail tag to see when the rescue file was last modified.

Here, the rescue save command was executed, a system uptime was run to show the current time within Junos, and the file list detail command shows the file present with the current timestamp.
