[Junos Fusion] Procedure for shutting down Satellite Device



Article ID: KB33632 KB Last Updated: 27 Dec 2018Version: 1.0
The Junos Fusion topology is composed of an Aggregation Device (AD) and multiple Satellite Devices (SD). This article explains how to shut down Junos Fusion Satellite devices. This is needed in order to shut down the SD safely in order to unplug the power cable to replace the device.

Note: If you want to remove the setting of the satellite software (SNOS), refer to Removing a Satellite Device from a Junos Fusion.


From the Aggregation Device (AD) CLI, you can execute shutdown using either of the options below.

After performing option 1 or 2, you can turn off the switch device and unplug the cable.

Note:  If you do not include the "-h" option with the shutdown command, the SD box will remain in the power-on state.

Option 1

Run request CLI command on AD to execute shell command on SD.

user@AD> request chassis satellite shell-command "shutdown -h now" fpc-slot <slot-number>
user@AD> request chassis satellite shell-command "halt -p" fpc-slot <slot-number>
user@AD> request chassis satellite shell-command "poweroff" fpc-slot <slot-number>

Sample Output:
AD operation window:

user@AD > request chassis satellite shell-command "shutdown -h now" fpc-slot 101
Command send to FPC. Waiting for response.
215 Data follows, terminated by "."
Slot-ID: 101

Option 2

Execute shutdown -h (or halt -p, poweroff) command from Linux base OS running on SD.

Sample Output:

user@AD> request chassis satellite login fpc-slot 101
sd101:~$ sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now; exit <-- without "; exit" in one line, the prompt may get stuck until timeout.
