  • 1.  show version compair to cisco

    Dear All:

    In cisco for "show version" command we get the following


    sho version
    Cisco IOS Software, C2960 Software (C2960-LANBASE-M), Version 12.2(35)SE5, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
    Copyright (c) 1986-2007 by Cisco Systems, Inc.
    Compiled Thu 19-Jul-07 20:06 by nachen
    Image text-base: 0x00003000, data-base: 0x00D40000


    and so on...


    here it shows "compiled Thu ... " a date when the box was compiled for the first time


    My question is that what is the equvalant command for Juniper to find the same thing... I try with sho version but did not get my answer.

    You have various items of information under the show system

    show system software will show the running junos version

    from the cli run

    show system ?

    You also have a lot of information in the JWEB web interface.

    Also, under BSD on te SRX you can type


    which will give you a load more information.

    Dear John:

    Thank you for your reply... but in cisco "compiled" means the box's first factory release date, some one can find the actual age of the box... but in Juniper srx "show version" or "show software version" only show sofware date, if i upgrade the junos then the date will be changed.


    is there any way to find the actual factory age of the box?

    You are greatly mistaken--the 'compilation' date is the date the installed version of ios software was compiled. This is completely independent of the hardware build date.
