    Hi Everyone,

    I am familizaring  myself with snapshot feature on my lab SRX 100.

    Below I have created a snapshot:

    root@AFTER-SNAPSHOT> show system storage partitions
    Boot Media: internal (da0)
    Active Partition: da0s1a
    Backup Partition: da0s2a <----------------------BACK UP
    Currently booted from: active (da0s1a)

    Partitions information:
    Partition Size Mountpoint
    s1a 292M /
    s2a 293M altroot
    s3e 24M /config
    s3f 342M /var
    s4a 27M recovery
    s4e 2.7M

     

    I want to boot SRX from back up partition shown  da0s2 ?

    Below I did that ( there is no option to specify da0s2)

    root@AFTER-SNAPSHOT> request system reboot media internal
    Reboot the system ? [yes,no] (no) yes

    Shutdown NOW!
    [pid 1472]

     

     

    root@AFTER-SNAPSHOT> show system storage partitions
    Boot Media: internal (da0)
    Active Partition: da0s1a
    Backup Partition: da0s2a
    Currently booted from: active (da0s1a)-----------> Still booted from da0s1a not da0s2a as intended

    Partitions information:
    Partition Size Mountpoint
    s1a 292M /
    s2a 293M altroot
    s3e 24M /config
    s3f 342M /var
    s4a 27M recovery
    s4e 2.7M

     

    What am i missing?

     

    Thanks and have a nice weekend!!

    Backup partition is used as a recovery partition and you cannot force boot from that . It’s used only when the primary partition is not available (mostly file corruption issues).
