    Hi everybody,

    On SRX we have without no-copy option during software upgrade:


     I am wondering if such option is available on EX4600/EX4300?

    Thanks and have a good evening!!

    Hi sarahr202,


    As the KB stated this is applicable to all Junos [Junos] Example - Upgrade Junos OS with no-copy option
    as the no-copy statement is optional the default is to copy, so as in SRX's to "no-copy" you need to issue the command, and as mentioned before it is the same for Switches, Routers, and Firewalls running Junos 🙂


    here you can find some more info: https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/reference/command-summary/request-system-software-add.html
