    Hello guys,

     

    Can someone please explain to me the difference between 'request system snapshot slice alternate' and 'request system snapshot media internal'?

     

    I usually use the 'request system snapshot media internal' command to copy Junos from primary to back up or the other way around. 

     

    Thanks

    Hi Karan,

     

    Thanks for the prompt response. I believe the above applies to SRX and EX series devices?

     

    So if an EX series switch booted from the backup and if I need to copy the Backup Junos to Primary, all I need to do is issue "request system snapshot slice alternate" command.

     

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    Hi Suresh,

     

    This is JUNOS feature, applies to SRX/EX nodes as well and yes, your understanding is right.
