  • 1.  ex3400-24p automatic / immediate console log out when 'set system ports console log-out-on-disconnect' configured

    We got a new switch and tried to configure it for production with our standard config.  Our standard config contains the command 'set system ports console log-out-on-disconnect'.  After committing the config, it would automatically / immediately log out after EVERY successful login with a local account, which is the only option on the bench.  This seems like a hardware failure where it sees a console disconnect and logs out even though console is clearly not disconnected, as shown by continued console output (see attachment).  This is a repeatable failure.

    Has anyone else encountered this failure? It seems like this is possible on any similar hardware.

    RMA is currently in process.

    BTW, someone else on our team tried other JunOS version and different console cables/USB adapters.

    The RMA replacement device is doing the same thing. But I have other ex3400-24p that don't have this problem. Is it a bug with the OS, or a hardware problem with certain hardware revisions of the ex3400-24p? I don't have time to waste figuring it out.

    The workaround I used while it was still on the bench is "How to Recover the Root Password on Junos OS with Upgraded FreeBSD", except instead of
    `set system root-authentication plain-text-password`
    I used
    `deactivate system ports console log-out-on-disconnect`

    Thank you for this post! I've come across the exact same issue with an EX3400-48P stack. Another weird workaround is if you have a stack of switches, connect your console connection on the fpc1 switch to console into the master fpc0 switch. Then deactivate the log-out-on-disconnect as you advised.

    This issue does not occur with the EX2300-24P. All are running 21.4R3-S3.4.
