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.
Please review this doc:
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 🙂
This is JUNOS feature, applies to SRX/EX nodes as well and yes, your understanding is right.
"request system snapshot slice alternate" commmand is used to copy the primary (acitve) to the backup not backup to the primary.
