[QFX] Commit failure with 'error: Failed Reading Default configuration database'



Article ID: KB34194 KB Last Updated: 07 May 2019Version: 1.0

This article describes a commit failure with the message, 'error: Failed Reading Default configuration database:' while trying to configure an MC-LAG using QFX10Ks.

This is because QFX10K requires the "redundancy-group" construct that MX / EX9200 requires, but QFX5100 does not. 


Unable to change the configuration successfully.


Candidate configuration: 

root@QFX2# show protocols iccp
session-establishment-hold-time 240;
peer {
    liveness-detection {
       minimum-interval 1000;

root@QFX2# commit
error: Failed Reading Default configuration database:
error: configuration check-out failed
root@QFX2# show |compare
[edit protocols iccp peer]
+    redundancy-group-id-list 1;

root@QFX2# commit
configuration check succeeds
