Article ID: KB33660 KB Last Updated: 28 Mar 2019Version: 3.0

A Junos upgrade error occurred with next-gen routing engine while using the wrong image file. The following error message appears if you use the regular Junos file with next-gen routing engine:

Routing-Engine Model:
Routing Engine 0 REV 16   750-054758   CAKR4751          RE-S-2X00x6
Routing Engine 1 REV 16   750-054758   CAKT3665          RE-S-2X00x6

The solution is to use the Junos file that is specifically for Next-Gen routing-engine:


Use the following to upgrade:

request vmhost software add   /var/tmp/junos-vmhost-install-mx-x86-64-17.3R3.10.tgz
