[SRX] Commit error: "cannot connect to other RE , ignoring it"



Article ID: KB28186 KB Last Updated: 11 Mar 2014Version: 1.0

This article describes an error encountered when committing the configuration:

cannot connect to other RE , ignoring it


root@SRX# commit
error: Could not connect to re1 : No route to host
warning: Cannot connect to other RE, ignoring it
commit complete


This occurs because the following has been entered as part of the configuration:

set system commit synchronize

The above command is used by non-SRX systems to synchronize the configuration between dual Routing Engines on the same device.

Dual Routing Engines on the same device are used by SRX5400/5600/5800 systems to allow for Dual Control Links.

Active configuration is not stored on the secondary Routing Engine on the same device in SRX5400/5600/5800 systems.

Note: When using Chassis Clusters, configurations are automatically synchronized to the Routing Engine on the Backup Chassis Cluster Node during a commit.


Delete the above configuration line (set system commit synchronize) using the following command:

delete system commit synchronize
