Authentication and Access Control
•
IPv6 for RADIUS AAA (EX3300, EX4200, EX4300, EX4500, and EX8200 switches
and EX4300 Virtual Chassis)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, EX3300,
EX4200, EX4300, EX4500, and EX8200 switches and EX4300 Virtual Chassis support
IPv6, along with the existing IPv4 support, for user authentication, authorization, and
accounting (AAA) using RADIUS servers.
RADIUS authentication is a method of authenticating users who attempt to access
the router or switch. To use RADIUS authentication on the switch, configure information
about one or more RADIUS servers on the network by including one radius-server
statement at the [edit system] hierarchy level for each RADIUS server.

New and Changed Features
When you configure a source address for each configured RADIUS server, each RADIUS
request sent to a RADIUS server uses the specified source address.
•
Authentication—Specify which source address Junos OS uses when accessing your
network to contact an external RADIUS server for authentication. You configure the
IPv6 source address for RADIUS authentication at the [edit system radius-server
server-address source-address] hierarchy level.
•
Accounting—Specify which source address Junos OS uses when contacting a RADIUS
server for sending accounting information. You configure the IPv6 source address
for RADIUS authentication at the [edit system accounting destination radius server
server-address source-address] hierarchy level.
[See source-address.]
Bridging and Learning
•
RVI support for private VLANs (EX8200 switches and EX8200 Virtual
Chassis)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, you can configure a routed
VLAN interface (RVI) on an EX8200 switch or EX8200 Virtual Chassis to handle the
Layer 3 traffic of intersecondary VLANs (community VLANs and isolated VLANs) in a
private VLAN (PVLAN). By using an RVI to handle the routing within the PVLAN, you
eliminate the need for an external router with a promiscuous port connection to perform
this function.
One RVI serves the entire PVLAN domain regardless of whether the domain consists
of one or more switches. After you configure the RVI, Layer 3 packets received by the
secondary VLAN interfaces are mapped to and routed by the RVI.
[See Configuring a Routed VLAN Interface in a Private VLAN (CLI Procedure).]
•
Support for private VLANs (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
EX4300 switches support private VLANs (PVLANs). PVLANs are useful for restricting
the flow of broadcast and unknown unicast traffic and for limiting the known
communication between known hosts. PVLANs can be used to help ensure the security
of service providers sharing a server farm, or to provide security to subscribers of various
service providers sharing a common metropolitan area network.
NOTE: An interface can belong to only one PVLAN domain.
[See Understanding Private VLANs on EX Series Switches.]
•
Support for Layer 2 protocol tunneling (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, EX4300 switches support Layer 2 protocol tunneling (L2PT). L2PT enables
service providers to send Layer 2 protocol data units (PDUs) across the provider’s cloud
and deliver them to Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches that are not part of
the local broadcast domain. This feature is useful when you want to run Layer 2
protocols on a network that includes switches located at remote sites that are
connected across a service provider network. For example, it can help you provide
transparent LAN services over a metropolitan Ethernet infrastructure. L2PT operates

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
under the Q-in-Q tunneling configuration; therefore, you must enable Q-in-Q tunneling
before you can configure L2PT.
The Layer 2 protocol to be tunneled can be one of the following: 802.3AH, CDP, LACP,
LLDP, MVRP, STP, VTP, GVRP, or VSTP.
NOTE: L2PT does not support the following on EX4300 switches:
•
drop-threshold or shutdown-threshold statements
•
The all option for setting the Layer 2 protocol
•
802.1X authentication
[See Understanding Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling on EX Series Switches.]
•
MAC notification (EX4300 and EX4600)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
MAC notification is supported on EX4300 and EX4600 switches. The switches track
clients on a network by storing MAC addresses in the Ethernet switching table on the
switch. When switches learn or unlearn a MAC address, SNMP notifications can be
sent to the network management system at regular intervals to record the addition or
removal of the MAC address. This process is known as MAC notification.
The MAC Notification MIB controls MAC notification for the network management
system.
The MAC notification interval defines how often these SNMP notifications are sent to
the network management system. The MAC notification interval works by tracking all
MAC address additions or removals on the switch over a period of time and then sending
all tracked MAC address additions or removals to the network management server at
the end of the interval.
Enabling MAC notification allows you to monitor the addition and removal of MAC
addresses from the Ethernet switching table remotely using a network management
system. The advantage of setting a high MAC notification interval is that the amount
of network traffic is reduced because updates are sent less frequently. The advantage
of setting a low MAC notification interval is that the network management system is
better synchronized with the switch.
Two new MIBs related to MAC notification are provided at Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10. See “Documentation Updates” on page 18.
[See Configuring MAC Notification (CLI Procedure).]

Default VLAN and multiple VLAN range support (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.1X53-D10, the default VLAN and multiple VLAN range are supported on
EX4300 switches. They provide the ability for the switch to operate as a plug and play
device and connect to various Ethernet-enabled devices in a small, scaled enterprise
network. When the switch boots, a VLAN named default is created. The default VLAN
is automatically created for the default routing instance named default-switch. All
interfaces on the switch are automatically configured as access interfaces and are
part of the default VLAN.
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
The default VLAN accepts and forwards untagged packets only and is preconfigured
with a VLAN ID (vlan-id) of 1. The default VLAN does not support a VLAN ID list
(vlan-id-list), vlan-id set to all, or vlan-id set to none. You can configure the VLAN ID
to be another value, but the value must be between 1 and 4093.
Access interfaces that are enabled for VoIP or 802.1X are internally converted to trunk
interfaces, so that the interfaces can belong to multiple VLANs. If the interfaces do not
belong to a valid VLAN, the interfaces automatically become part of the default VLAN.
You can configure more than one VLAN range, and each range can contain unique
VLAN properties.
NOTE: Virtual Chassis interfaces cannot be preconfigured to belong to the
default VLAN or any other VLAN.
NOTE: For interfaces to be part of the default VLAN, you must configure
the interfaces to be part of the Ethernet switching family. You can configure
Ethernet switching at the [edit interfaces interface-name unit family] CLI
hierarchy level.
Class of Service
•
Explicit congestion notification (ECN) support (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.1X53-D10, ECN marking is supported on EX4300 switches—you enable it
for packets in scheduler queues. Explicit congestion notification (ECN) enables
end-to-end congestion notification between two endpoints on TCP/IP based networks.
The two endpoints are an ECN-enabled sender and an ECN-enabled receiver. ECN
must be enabled on both endpoints and on all intermediate devices between the
endpoints for ECN to work properly. Any device in the transmission path that does not
support ECN breaks the end-to-end ECN functionality.
ECN notifies networks about congestion with the goal of reducing packet loss and
delay by making the sending device decrease the transmission rate until the congestion
clears, without dropping packets.
To enable ECN, issue the set class-of-service schedulers name
explicit-congestion-notification command.
Infrastructure
•
Licensing enhancements (EX Series)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
licensing enhancements on EX Series switches enable you to configure and delete
license keys in a Junos OS CLI configuration file. The license keys are validated and
installed after a successful commit of the configuration file. If a license key is invalid,
the commit fails and issues an error message. You can configure individual license keys
or multiple license keys by issuing Junos OS CLI commands or by loading the license
key configuration contained in a file. All installed license keys are stored in the
/config/license/ directory.

Support for aggregated Ethernet link protection enhancements (EX4500)—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, aggregated Ethernet link protection is enhanced
on EX4500 switches to support a collection of Ethernet links within a LAG bundle. Link
protection could previously be used to protect a single link within a LAG bundle only.
The ability to provide link protection for a collection of links in a LAG bundle is provided
using link protection subgroups, which are introduced as part of this feature.
[See Configuring LACP Link Protection of Aggregated Ethernet Interfaces (CLI Procedure).]
J-Web
•
J-Web interface available in two packages (EX2200, EX3200, EX3300, EX4200,
EX4300, EX4500, EX4550, EX6200)—Prior to this release, the J-Web interface was
available as a single package as part of Junos OS. Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, the J-Web interface is available in two packages:
•
The Platform package is installed as part of Junos OS, which provides basic
functionalities of J-Web. You can use the Platform package to create a basic
configuration and maintain your EX Series switch.
•
The Application package is an optionally installable package, which provides
complete functionalities of J-Web that enable you to configure, monitor, maintain,
and troubleshoot your switch. You must download the Application package and
install it over the Platform package on your switch.
For detailed information about the J-Web packages, see Release Notes: J-Web
Application Package Release 14.1X53-A1 for Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches.

Browser support enhancements for the J-Web interface (EX2200, EX3200, EX3300,
EX4200, EX4300, EX4500, EX4550, EX6200)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, the J-Web interface supports the following browsers:
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
New and Changed Features
•
Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 9 and 10
•
Mozilla Firefox versions 24 through 30
•
Google Chrome versions 27 through 36
TIP: For best viewing of the J-Web application, set the screen resolution
to 1440 X 900.
Layer 3 Protocols
•
IS-IS protocol (EX3300)—EX3300 switches now support the Intermediate
System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol. On EX3300 switches, the IS-IS
configuration is available at the [edit protocols] hierarchy level.
[See Layer 3 Protocols Supported on EX Series Switches.]
MPLS
•
Ethernet-over-MPLS (L2 circuit) (EX4600)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, Ethernet-over-MPLS is supported on EX4600 switches.
Ethernet-over-MPLS enables you to send Layer 2 Ethernet frames transparently over
an MPLS cloud. Ethernet-over-MPLS uses a tunneling mechanism for Ethernet traffic
through an MPLS-enabled Layer 3 core. It encapsulates Ethernet protocol data units
(PDUs) inside MPLS packets and forwards the packets, using label stacking, across
the MPLS network.
This technology has applications in service provider, enterprise, and data center
environments. For disaster recovery purposes, data centers are hosted in multiple sites
that are geographically distant and interconnected using a WAN network. These data
centers require Layer 2 connectivity between them for the following reasons:
•
•
To replicate the storage over Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP). FCIP works only on the
same broadcast domain.
•
To run a dynamic routing protocol between the sites.
•
To support high availability clusters that interconnect the nodes hosted in the various
data centers.
MPLS-based Layer 3 VPNs (EX4600)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
MPLS-based Layer 3 VPNs are supported on EX4600 switches.
Customer networks are private and can use either public addresses or private addresses.
When customer networks that use private addresses connect to the public Internet
infrastructure, the private addresses might overlap with private addresses being used
by other network users. MPLS BGP VPNs solve this problem by adding the route
distinguisher prefix to the route.
You can configure the switch as a CE or PE device using Layer 3 MPLS/BGP VPN for
interprovider and carrier-of-carrier VPNs. The key difference between interprovider
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
11
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
and carrier-of-carriers VPNs is whether the customer sites belong to the same
autonomous system (AS) or to a separate AS:
•
•
Interprovider VPNs—The customer sites belong to different ASs. You need to configure
EBGP to exchange the customer’s external routes.
•
Carrier-of-carriers VPNs—The customer sites belong to the same AS. You need to
configure IBGP to exchange the customer’s external routes.
MPLS LSP protection (EX4600)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, the
following types of MPLS LSP protection are supported on EX4600 switches:
•
Fast reroute (FRR)
•
Link protection
•
Node link protection
[ See MPLS Overview.]
Network Management and Monitoring
•
Chef for Junos OS (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, Chef for
Junos OS is supported on EX4300 switches.
•
Puppet for Junos OS (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, Puppet
for Junos OS is supported on EX4300 switches.
•
Network analytics (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, EX4300
switches support the network analytics feature. The network analytics feature provides
visibility into the performance and behavior of the data center infrastructure. This
feature collects data from the switch, analyzes the data by using sophisticated
algorithms, and captures the results in reports. Network administrators can use the
reports to help troubleshoot problems, make decisions, and adjust resources as needed.
The analytics manager (analyticsm) in the Packet Forwarding Engine collects traffic
and queue statistics, and the analytics daemon (analyticsd) in the Routing Engine
analyzes the data and generates reports. You can enable network analytics by
configuring microburst monitoring and high-frequency traffic statistics monitoring.
[See Network Analytics Overview.]
12
•
Ethernet frame delay measurement (EX2200)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, you can obtain Ethernet frame delay measurements (ETH-DM) on an
EX2200 switch. You can configure Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)
statements for connectivity fault management (IEEE 802.1ag) to provide on-demand
measurements of frame delay and frame delay variation (jitter). You configure the
feature under the [edit protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management] hierarchy
level.
•
Support for native analyzers and remote port-mirroring capabilities
(EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, native analyzers and remote
port mirroring are supported on EX4300 switches. A native analyzer configuration
contains both an input stanza and an output stanza in the analyzer hierarchy for
mirroring packets. In remote port mirroring, the mirrored traffic is flooded into a remote
mirroring VLAN that can be specifically created for the purpose of receiving mirrored

New and Changed Features
traffic. On EX4300 switches, the analyzer configuration is available under the [edit
forwarding-options] hierarchy level.
Port Security
•
IPv6 access security (EX2200 and EX3300)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, the following IPv6 access security features are supported on EX2200 and
EX3300 switches: DHCPv6 snooping, IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Inspection, IPv6 source
guard, and RA guard. DHCPv6 snooping enables a switch to process DHCPv6 messages
between a client and a server and build a database of the IPv6 addresses assigned to
the DHCPv6 clients. The switch can use this database, also known as the binding table,
to stop malicious traffic. DHCPv6 includes the relay agent Remote-ID option, also
known as Option 37, to optionally append additional information to the messages sent
by the client towards the server. This information can be used by the server to assign
addresses and configuration parameters to the client. IPv6 Neighbor Discovery
inspection analyzes neighbor discovery messages sent between IPv6 nodes on the
same link and verifies them against the DHCPv6 binding table. IPv6 source guard
inspects all IPv6 traffic from the client and verifies the source IPv6 address and source
MAC address against the entries in the DHCPv6 binding table. If no match is found, the
traffic is dropped. RA guard examines incoming Router Advertisement (RA) messages
and decides whether to forward or block them based on statically configured IPv6/MAC
address bindings. If the content of the RA message does not match the bindings, the
message is dropped.
Starting with this release, Remote-ID (Option-37) is not added by default on when you
enable dhcpv6-snooping.
You configure DHCPv6 snooping, IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Inspection, and IPv6 source
guard at the [edit ethernet-switching-options secure-access-port vlan vlan-name]
hierarchy level. You configure RA guard at the [edit ethernet-switching-options
secure-access-port interface interface-name] hierarchy level.
[See Port Security Overview.]
•
IPv6 access security (EX4300)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, DHCPv6
snooping supports a configuration to optionally append the relay agent Remote ID
(Option-37), Interface-ID (Option-18), and Vendor-Class (Option-16) to the DHCPv6
packets sent by a client. You can configure these options under the [edit vlans vlan-name
forwarding-options dhcp-security dhcpv6-options] hierarchy level.
•
Media Access Control Security (MACsec) support for switch to host connections
(EX4200, EX4300, and EX4550)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
MACsec is supported on links connecting EX4200, EX4300, and EX4550 switches to
host devices, such as phones, servers, personal computers, or other endpoint devices.
This feature also introduces MACsec dynamic mode and the ability to retrieve MACsec
Key Agreement (MKA) keys from a RADIUS server, which are required to enable MACsec
on a switch to host link.

Virtual Chassis and Virtual Chassis Fabric
•
Alias support for Virtual Chassis and Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) nodes—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, an alias can be used to label nodes in a Virtual
Chassis and VCF. An alias enables you to more clearly identify a member switch in your
Virtual Chassis or VCF by assigning a text label to it. The text label appears alongside
the switch's serial number whenever operational commands, such as show
virtual-chassis, are used to monitor Virtual Chassis status.

In the J-Web interface, you cannot commit some configuration changes in the Ports
Configuration page or the VLAN Configuration page because of the following limitations
for port-mirroring ports and port-mirroring VLANs:
•
A port configured as the output port for an analyzer cannot be a member of any
VLAN other than the default VLAN.

Known Issues
•
The J-Web interface does not support role-based access control; it supports only users
in the super-user authorization class. Therefore, a user who is not in the super-user
class, such as a user with view-only permission, is able to launch the J-Web interface
and can configure everything, but the configuration fails on the switch, and the switch
displays access permission error messages. This is a known software limitation.
PR604595
Multicast Protocols
•
On EX4300 switches, executing the show igmp snooping membership CLI command
continuously while IGMP groups are being processed results in some groups not being
displayed in the output. CPU utilization also increases significantly when this command
is executed when there are more than 1000 groups. As a workaround, issue the show
igmp snooping membership command with filters such as group or interface. This is a
known software limitation. PR914908

•
On EX2200 switches, remote MEP flaps might occur every 30 to 200 seconds because
of processing delays and lead to iterator delay measurement statistic resets. All delay
system measurements remain valid when this issue occurs. As a workaround, use an
iterator count of less than 30. PR1005819

Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases on page 19
Upgrade and Downgrade Support Policy for Junos OS Releases
Support for upgrades and downgrades that span more than three Junos OS releases at
a time is not provided, except for releases that are designated as Extended End-of-Life
(EEOL) releases. EEOL releases provide direct upgrade and downgrade paths—you can
upgrade directly from one EEOL release to the next EEOL release, even though EEOL
releases generally occur in increments beyond three releases.
You can upgrade or downgrade to the EEOL release that occurs directly before or after
the currently installed EEOL release, or to two EEOL releases before or after. For example,
Junos OS Releases 10.0, 10.4, and 11.4 are EEOL releases. You can upgrade from Junos OS
Release 10.0 to Release 10.4 or even from Junos OS Release 10.0 to Release 11.4. However,
you cannot upgrade directly from a non-EEOL release that is more than three releases
ahead or behind. For example, you cannot directly upgrade from Junos OS Release 10.3
(a non-EEOL release) to Junos OS Release 11.4 or directly downgrade from Junos OS
Release 11.4 to Junos OS Release 10.3.
To upgrade or downgrade from a non-EEOL release to a release more than three releases
before or after, first upgrade to the next EEOL release and then upgrade or downgrade
from that EEOL release to your target release.
For more information about EEOL releases and to review a list of EEOL releases, see

Authentication and Access Control
•
IPv6 for RADIUS AAA (QFX5100 switch and Virtual Chassis)—Starting with Junos
OS Release 14.1X53-D10, QFX5100 switches and QFX5100 Virtual Chassis support
IPv6, along with the existing IPv4 support, for user authentication, authorization, and
accounting (AAA) using RADIUS servers.
RADIUS authentication is a method of authenticating users who attempt to access
the router or switch. To use RADIUS authentication on the switch, configure information
about one or more RADIUS servers on the network by including one radius-server
statement at the [edit system] hierarchy level for each RADIUS server.
When you configure a source address for each configured RADIUS server, each RADIUS
request sent to a RADIUS server uses the specified source address.
•
Authentication—Specify which source address Junos OS uses when accessing your
network to contact an external RADIUS server for authentication. You configure the
IPv6 source address for RADIUS authentication at the [edit system radius-server
server-address source-address] hierarchy level.
•
Accounting—Specify which source address Junos OS uses when contacting a RADIUS
server for sending accounting information. You configure the IPv6 source address
for RADIUS authentication at the [edit system accounting destination radius server
server-address source-address] hierarchy level.
[See source-address.]
Bridging and Learning
•
MAC notification (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, MAC
notification is supported on QFX5100 switches. The switches track clients on a network
by storing MAC addresses in the Ethernet switching table on the switch. When switches
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
21
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
learn or unlearn a MAC address, SNMP notifications can be sent to the network
management system at regular intervals to record the addition or removal of the MAC
address. This process is known as MAC notification.
The MAC Notification MIB controls MAC notification for the network management
system.
The MAC notification interval defines how often these SNMP notifications are sent to
the network management system. The MAC notification interval works by tracking all
MAC address additions or removals on the switch over a period of time and then sending
all tracked MAC address additions or removals to the network management server at
the end of the interval.
Enabling MAC notification allows you to monitor the addition and removal of MAC
addresses from the Ethernet switching table remotely using a network management
system. The advantage of setting a high MAC notification interval is that the amount
of network traffic is reduced because updates are sent less frequently. The advantage
of setting a low MAC notification interval is that the network management system is
better synchronized with the switch.
Two new MIBs related to MAC notification are provided at Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10. See “Documentation Updates” on page 41.
[See Configuring MAC Notification (CLI Procedure).]
•
Default VLAN and multiple VLAN range support (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.1X53-D10, the default VLAN and multiple VLAN range are supported on
QFX5100 switches. They provide the ability for the switch to operate as a plug and play
device and connect to various Ethernet-enabled devices in a small, scaled enterprise
network. When the switch boots, a VLAN named default is created. The default VLAN
is automatically created for every routing instance that belongs to a type of
virtual-switch and for the default routing instance named default-switch. All interfaces
on the switch are automatically configured as access interfaces and are part of the
default VLAN.
The default VLAN accepts and forwards untagged packets only and is preconfigured
with a VLAN ID (vlan-id) of 1. The default VLAN does not support a VLAN ID list
(vlan-id-list), vlan-id set to all, or vlan-id set to none. You can configure the VLAN ID
to be another value, but the value must be between 1 and 4093.
Access interfaces that are VoIP-enabled or 802.1X-enabled are internally converted
to trunk interfaces, so that the interfaces can belong to multiple VLANs. If the interfaces
do not belong to a valid VLAN, the interfaces automatically become part of the default
VLAN.
You can configure more than one VLAN range, and each range can contain unique
VLAN properties.
NOTE: Virtual Chassis interfaces cannot be preconfigured to belong to the
default VLAN or any other VLAN.

NOTE: For interfaces to be part of the default VLAN, you must configure
the interfaces to be part of the Ethernet switching family. You can configure
Ethernet switching at the [edit interfaces interface-name unit family] CLI
hierarchy level.

Ethernet ring protection switching (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, Ethernet ring protection switching (ERPS) is supported on QFX5100
switches. ERPS helps achieve high reliability and network stability. Links in the ring
never form loops that fatally affect the network operation and services availability.
[See Understanding Ethernet Ring Protection Switching Functionality.]
High Availability
•
Resilient hashing support for link aggregation groups and equal cost multipath
routes (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, resilient hashing is
now supported by link aggregation groups (LAGs) and equal cost multipath (ECMP)
sets.
A LAG combines Ethernet interfaces (members) to form a logical point-to-point link
that increases bandwidth, provides reliability, and allows load balancing. Resilient
hashing enhances LAGs by minimizing destination remapping when a new member is
added to or deleted from the LAG.
Resilient hashing works in conjunction with the default static hashing algorithm. It
distributes traffic across all members of a LAG by tracking the flow’s LAG member
utilization. When a flow is affected by a LAG member change, the packet forwarding
engine (PFE) rebalances the flow by reprogramming the flow set table. Destination
paths are remapped when a new member is added to or existing members are deleted
from a LAG.
Resilient hashing applies only to unicast traffic and supports a maximum of 1024 LAGs,
with each group having a maximum of 256 members.
An ECMP group for a route contains multiple next-hop equal cost addresses for the
same destination in the routing table. (Routes of equal cost have the same preference
and metric values.)
Junos OS uses a hash algorithm to choose one of the next-hop addresses in the ECMP
group to install in the forwarding table. Flows to the destination are rebalanced using
resilient hashing.
Resilient hashing enhances ECMPs by minimizing destination remapping when a new
member is added to or deleted from the ECMP group.

Groups.]

Fast reboot option (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, you can
enhance the reboot time on a QFX5100 by issuing the new fast-boot option with the
request system reboot command (request system reboot fast-boot). The switch reboots
in such a way as to minimize downtime of network ports by not bringing the network
ports down immediately as in the normal reboot option. There is minimal traffic loss
while the forwarding device is reprogrammed.
[See request system reboot.]
•
Keep a link up on a multichassis link aggregation group (MC-LAG) when LACP is not
configured on one of the MC-LAG peers (QFX5100 switch)—Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10 provides connectivity from provider edge devices to customer edge devices
when LACP is not configured on a customer edge device. The customer edge device
must have one link connected to the provider edge device, though, and multichassis
link aggregation must be configured between the provider edge devices in the MC-LAG.
You can configure the force-up feature in Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
on the provider edge device for which you need connectivity. Additionally, only one
member interface in the aggregated Ethernet interface can be active, otherwise the
provider edge device will receive duplicate packets.
[See Forcing MC-LAG Links or Interfaces with Limited LACP Capability to Be Up.]

New and Changed Features
Layer 3 Features
•
Loop-free alternate (QFX5100)—QFX5100 switches support loop-free alternates
(LFA) to compute backup next hops for IS-IS routes, providing IP fast-reroute capability
for IS-IS routes. These routes, with precomputed backup next hops, are preinstalled
in the Packet Forwarding Engine, which performs a local repair and switches to the
backup next hop when the link for the primary next hop for a particular route is no
longer available. With local repair, the Packet Forwarding Engine can correct a path
failure before it receives recomputed paths from the Routing Engine. Local repair
reduces the amount of time needed to reroute traffic to less than 50 milliseconds. You
can configure loop free alternates (LFA) for IS-IS at the [edit protocols isis] hierarchy
level.
•
IS-IS support (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, on QFX5100
switches, the IS-IS protocol has extensions to differentiate between different sets of
routing information sent between routers and switches for unicast and multicast. IS-IS
routes can be added to the RPF table when special features such as traffic engineering
and shortcuts are turned on. You configure the feature under the [edit protocols isis]
hierarchy level.
MPLS
•
MPLS-based Layer 3 VPNs (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
MPLS-based Layer 3 VPNs are supported on QFX5100 switches.
Customer networks are private and can use either public addresses or private addresses.
When customer networks that use private addresses connect to the public Internet
infrastructure, the private addresses might overlap with private addresses being used
by other network users. MPLS BGP VPNs solve this problem by adding the route
distinguisher prefix to the route.
You can configure the switch as a CE or PE using Layer 3 MPLS/BGP VPN for
interprovider and carrier-of-carrier VPNs. The key difference between interprovider
and carrier-of-carriers VPNs is whether the customer sites belong to the same
autonomous system (AS) or to a separate AS:
•
•
Interprovider VPNs—The customer sites belong to different ASs. You need to configure
EBGP to exchange the customer’s external routes.
•
Carrier-of-carriers VPNs—The customer sites belong to the same AS. You need to
configure IBGP to exchange the customer’s external routes.
Ethernet-over-MPLS (L2 circuit) (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, Ethernet-over-MPLS is supported on QFX5100 switches.
Ethernet-over-MPLS enables you to send Layer 2 Ethernet frames transparently over
an MPLS cloud. Ethernet-over-MPLS uses a tunneling mechanism for Ethernet traffic
through an MPLS-enabled Layer 3 core. It encapsulates Ethernet protocol data units
(PDUs) inside MPLS packets and forwards the packets, using label stacking, across
the MPLS network.
This technology has applications in service provider, enterprise, and data center
environments. For disaster recovery purposes, data centers are hosted in multiple sites
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
27
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
that are geographically distant and interconnected using a WAN network. These data
centers require Layer 2 connectivity between them for the following reasons:
•
•
To replicate the storage over Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP). FCIP works only on the
same broadcast domain.
•
To run a dynamic routing protocol between the sites.
•
To support high availability clusters that interconnect the nodes hosted in the various
data centers.
MPLS LSP protection (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, the
following types of MPLS LSP protection are supported on QFX5100 switches:
•
Fast reroute (FRR)
•
Link protection
•
Node link protection
[ See MPLS Overview.]
Network Management and Monitoring
28
•
Chef for Junos OS (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, Chef for
Junos OS is supported on all QFX5100 switches, not just QFX5100 switches that are
running Junos OS with automated enhancements for QFX5100 switches.
•
Puppet for Junos OS (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, Puppet
for Junos OS is supported on QFX5100 switches that are not running Junos OS with
automated enhancements for QFX5100 switches.
•
IEEE 802.3ah (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, QFX5100
switches support the IEEE 802.3ah standard for the Operation, Administration, and
Maintenance (OAM) of Ethernet in networks. The standard defines OAM link fault
management (LFM). You can configure IEEE 802.3ah OAM LFM on point-to-point
Ethernet links that are connected either directly or through Ethernet repeaters. Ethernet
OAM provides the tools that network management software and network managers
can use to determine how a network of Ethernet links is functioning. You configure the
feature under the [edit protocols oam ethernet] hierarchy level.

New and Changed Features
OpenFlow
•
Support for OpenFlow v1.0 and v1.3.1 (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release
14.1X53-D10, QFX5100 switches support OpenFlow v1.0 and v1.3.1. OpenFlow v1.0
enables you to control traffic in an existing network by adding, deleting, and modifying
flows in the switch. You can configure one OpenFlow virtual switch and one active
OpenFlow controller under the [edit protocols openflow] hierarchy on each QFX5100
switch in the network.
In addition to the OpenFlow v1.0 functionality, OpenFlow v1.3.1 allows the action
specified in one or more flow entries to direct packets to a base action called a group.
The purpose of the group action is to further process these packets and assign a more
specific forwarding action to them. You can view groups that were added, modified,
or deleted from the group table by way of the OpenFlow controller using the show
openflow groups command. You can view group statistics using the show openflow
statistics groups command.
OpenFlow v1.0 and v1.3.1 are not supported on MX Series routers or EX9200 switches
in Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10. OpenFlow v1.0 is supported in Junos OS Release 14.1
on these platforms.
[See Understanding OpenFlow Operation and Forwarding Actions on Devices Running
Junos OS.]
Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB)
OVSDB support (QFX5100)—The Junos OS implementation of the Open vSwitch
Database (OVSDB) management protocol provides a means through which VMware
NSX controllers and QFX5100 switches that support OVSDB can communicate. In an
NSX multi-hypervisor environment, NSX version 4.0.3 controllers and QFX5100 switches
can exchange control and statistical information via the OVSDB schema for physical
devices, thereby enabling virtual machine (VM) traffic from entities in a virtual network
to be forwarded to entities in a physical network and vice versa.
You can set up a connection between the QFX5100 management interface (em0 or em1)
and an NSX controller.
[See Setting Up Open vSwitch Database Connections Between Junos OS Devices and
Controllers.]
Security
•
Port mirroring to IP address (QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10,
you can send mirrored packets to an IP address over a Layer 3 network (for example,
if there is no Layer 2 connectivity to the analyzer device). This feature also enables you
to apply an IEEE-1588 timestamp to the mirrored packets.
Software Installation
•
Open Source Python modules supported in automation enhancement
(QFX5100)—Starting with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, these Open Source Python
modules are pre-installed in the jinstall-qfx-5-flex-x.tgz software bundle:

and libxslt with the simplicity of a native Python API.
•
jinja2—Serves as a fast, secure, designer-friendly templating language.
[See Overview of Python with QFX5100 Switch Automation Enhancements.]
Virtual Chassis and Virtual Chassis Fabric
•
Alias support for Virtual Chassis and Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) nodes—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, an alias can be used to label nodes in a Virtual
Chassis and VCF. An alias allows you to more clearly identify a member switch in your
Virtual Chassis or VCF by assigning a text label to it. The text label appears alongside
the switch's serial number whenever operational commands, such as show
virtual-chassis, are used to monitor Virtual Chassis status.
[See aliases.]
•
Local link bias support for Virtual Chassis with QFX Series member switches—Starting
with Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10, Virtual Chassis Local Link Bias is available on Link
Aggregation Group (LAG) bundles on QFX3500 Virtual Chassis, QFX3600 Virtual
Chassis, and mixed QFX3500 and QFX3600 Virtual Chassis. Virtual Chassis local link
bias conserves bandwidth on Virtual Chassis ports (VCPs) by using local links to forward
unicast traffic exiting a Virtual Chassis that has a LAG bundle composed of member
links on different member switches in the same Virtual Chassis. A local link is a member
link in the LAG bundle that is on the member switch that received the traffic. Because
traffic is received and forwarded on the same member switch when local link bias is
enabled, no VCP bandwidth is consumed by traffic traversing the VCPs to exit the
Virtual Chassis using a different member link in the LAG bundle.
[See Understanding Local Link Bias.]
•
Adaptive load balancing support (Virtual Chassis Fabric)—Starting with Junos OS
Release 14.1X53-D10, adaptive load balancing (ALB) is supported in Virtual Chassis
Fabric (VCF). ALB improves traffic management within a VCF by using dynamic load
information to make traffic forwarding decisions. ALB introduces a method to better
manage extremely large traffic flows—elephant flows—by splicing them into smaller
flows—flowlets—and individually forwarding the flowlets across the VCF to the same
destination device over different paths.

Known Behavior
VXLAN
•
Layer 2 VXLAN gateway (QFX5100)—VXLAN is an overlay technology that enables
you to stretch Layer 2 connections over an intervening Layer 3 network by encapsulating
(tunneling) Ethernet frames in a VXLAN packet that includes IP addresses. You can
use VXLAN tunnels to enable migration of virtual machines between servers that exist
in separate Layer 2 domains by tunneling the traffic through Layer 3 networks. This
functionality enables you to dynamically allocate resources within or between data
centers without being constrained by Layer 2 boundaries or being forced to create large
or geographically stretched Layer 2 domains. Using VXLANs to connect Layer 2 domains
over a Layer 3 network means that you do not need to use STP to converge the topology
(so no links are blocked) but can use more robust routing protocols in the Layer 3
network instead.
[See Understanding VXLANs.]

On a QFX5100 switch, if you configure MC-LAG, IRB mac sync, and LACP force up, the

MPLS
•
A pseudowire is a port-based Layer 2 circuit that emulates a service over a packet
switched network (PSN). You can emulate any circuit end to end using a pseudowire.
In the event of a link failure on a transit router that hosts a Layer 2 circuit over an RSVP
tunnel, the traffic convergence time is approximately 350 milliseconds for a single
pseudowire. PR1016992

If a pseudowire fails, the switchover from the active pseudowire to the standby/backup
pseudowire takes longer than expected. PR1025899, PR1026336
•
If a link failure occurs when multiple LSPs are using a link-protected, fast-rerouted link,
the convergence time is proportional to the number of LSPs sharing the protected link.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
•
On a QFX5100 switch, if an MPLS link is in hot standby mode and a pseudowire
switchover is triggered by the event remote site local interface signaled down, traffic
flowing through the pseudowire is dropped. PR1027755
•
Pseudowire is a port-based Layer 2 circuit that emulates a service over packet switched
network (PSN) using only virtual wire. You can emulate any circuit end to end using
pseudo-wire. Note that the rewrite configuration on an L2 circuit UNI port is not
persistent after a system reboot. As a workaround, reapply the rewrite configuration
after a system reboot. PR1026701, PR1026683
OpenFlow
•
On a QFX5100 switch, a BGP session might go down and come back up repeatedly if
an OpenFlow interface receives line-rate traffic that does not match any term and the
default action of packet-in is applied. PR892310
OVSDB
•
On QFX5100 switches, the amount of time that it takes for other Juniper Networks
devices that function as hardware virtual tunnel endpoints (VTEPs) to learn a new
MAC address after the first packet is sent from this MAC address is a maximum of 4.5
seconds. (The amount of time depends upon the server configuration on which VMware
NSX is running.) During this time, traffic destined for this MAC address is flooded into
the VXLAN. PR962945
•
After the connections with NSX controllers are disabled on a Juniper Networks device,
interfaces that were configured to be managed by OVSDB continue passing traffic.
PR980577
•
If an entity with a particular MAC address is moved so that its traffic is handled by a
different Juniper Networks device that functions as a hardware virtual tunnel endpoint
(VTEP), this MAC address is not learned by entities served by the new hardware VTEP
until the hardware VTEP that previously handled its traffic ages out the MAC address.
During this transitional period, traffic destined for this MAC address is dropped.
PR988270
•
On QFX5100 switches, an NSX controller occasionally overrides an existing local MAC
with a remote MAC of the same address. If the Junos OS hardware VTEP detects such
a condition (that is, it receives a remote MAC from the NSX controller that conflicts
(matches) with an existing local MAC), the hardware VTEP in a Junos OS network
accepts the remote MAC and stops publishing the local MAC to the NSX controller.
PR991553

•
On QFX5100 switches, an active path in the OVSDB overlay, which you can view by
using the show ovsdb mac operational command, does not always match the active
path in the Layer 3 network underlay, which you can view by using the show route
operational command. PR1015998
•
On QFX5100 switches, in NSX Manager, when a logical switch is deleted, the
corresponding VXLAN on a QFX5100 switch might not be automatically deleted and
might still appear in the output of the show vlans command. PR1024169
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Known Behavior
Routing Policy and Firewall Filters
•
On QFX Series Virtual Chassis, packets that are generated in the CPU and exit from a
non-master FPC port might be subjected to an egress port-based firewall filter (PACL)
and be egress filtered, while packets that exit from a master FPC port might not be
egress filtered. PR923659
Storage and Fibre Channel
•
Each Fibre Channel fabric on an FCoE-FC gateway supports a maximum of four Fibre
Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) VLAN interfaces.
•
The maximum number of logins for each FCoE node (ENode) is in the range of 32
through 2500. (Each ENode can log in to a particular fabric up to the maximum number
of configured times. The maximum number of logins is per fabric, so an ENode can log
in to more than one fabric and have its configured maximum number of logins on each
fabric.)
•
The maximum number of FCoE sessions for the switch, which equals the total number
of fabric login (FLOGI) sessions plus the total number of fabric discovery (FDISC)
sessions, is 2500.
•
The maximum number of FIP snooping sessions per QFX3500 switch is 2500.
•
When you configure FIP snooping filters, if the filters consume more space than is
available in the ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM), the configuration commit
operation succeeds even though the filters are not actually implemented in the
configuration. Because the commit operation checks syntax but does not check
available resources, it appears as if the FIP snooping filters are configured, but they
are not. The only indication of this issue is that the switch generates a system log
message that the TCAM is full. You must check the system log to find out if a TCAM
full message has been logged if you suspect that the filters have not been implemented.
•
You cannot use a fixed classifier to map FCoE traffic to an Ethernet interface. The FCoE
application type, length, and value (TLV) carries the FCoE priority-based flow control
(PFC) information when you use an explicit IEEE 802.1p classifier to map FCoE traffic
to an Ethernet interface. You cannot use a fixed classifier to map FCoE traffic to an
Ethernet interface because untagged traffic is classified in the FCoE forwarding class,
but FCoE traffic must have a priority tag (FCoE traffic cannot be untagged).
For example, the following behavior aggregate classifier configuration is supported:
[edit class-of-service]
[email protected]# set congestion notification profile fcoe-cnp input ieee-802.1 code-point
011 pfc
[email protected]# set interfaces xe-0/0/24 unit 0 classifiers ieee-802.1 fcoe
For example, the following fixed classifier configuration is not supported:
[edit class-of-service]
[email protected]# set interfaces xe-0/0/24 unit 0 forwarding-class fcoe

On a QFX Series device, a DCBX interoperability issue between 10-Gigabit Ethernet
interfaces on QFX Series devices and 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on another vendor’s
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
33
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
devices can prevent the two interfaces from performing DCBX negotiation successfully
in the following scenario:
1.
On a QFX Series 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface, LLDP is running, but DCBX is disabled.
2. On another vendor’s device 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface, both LLDP and DCBX are
running, but the interface is administratively down.
3. When you bring another vendor’s 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface up by issuing the no
shutdown command, the device sends DCBX 1.01 (CEE) TLVs, but receives no
acknowledge (ACK) message from the QFX Series device, because DCBX is not
enabled on the QFX Series device. After a few tries, another vendor’s device sends
DCBX 1.00 (CIN) TLVs, and again receive no ACK messages from the QFX Series
device.
4. Enable DCBX on the QFX Series 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface. The interface sends
DCBX 1.01 (CEE) TLVs, but the other vendor’s device ignores them and replies with
DCBX 1.00 (CIN) TLVs. The other vendor’s device does not attempt to send or
acknowledge DCBX 1.01 TLVs, only DCBX 1.00 TLVs.
In this case, the QFX Series device ignores the DCBX 1.00 (CIN) TLVs because the QFX
Series does not support DCBX 1.00 (the QFX Series supports DCBX 1.01 and IEEE DCBX).
The result is that the DCBX capabilities negotiation between the two interfaces fails.

Access interface CoS support—CoS on Virtual Chassis access interfaces is the same
as CoS on QFX Series access interfaces with the exception of shared buffer settings.
All of the documentation for QFX Series CoS on access interfaces applies to Virtual
Chassis access interfaces.
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Known Behavior
Virtual Chassis access interfaces support the following CoS features:
•
Forwarding classes—The default forwarding classes, queue mapping, and packet
drop attributes are the same as on QFX Series access interfaces:
Default Forwarding Class
Default Queue Mapping
Default Packet Drop Attribute
best-effort (be)
0
drop
fcoe
3
no-loss
no-loss
4
no-loss
network-control (nc)

8
drop
•
Packet classification—Classifier default settings and configuration are the same as
on QFX Series access interfaces. Support for behavior aggregate, multifield,
multidestination, and fixed classifiers is the same as on QFX Series access interfaces.
•
Enhanced transmission selection (ETS)—This data center bridging (DCB) feature
that supports hierarchical scheduling has the same defaults and user configuration
as on QFX Series access interfaces, including forwarding class set (priority group)
and traffic control profile configuration.
•
Priority-based flow control (PFC)—This DCB feature that supports lossless transport
has the same defaults and user configuration as on QFX Series access interfaces,
including support for six lossless priorities (forwarding classes).
•
Ethernet PAUSE—Same defaults and configuration as on QFX Series access
interfaces.
•
Queue scheduling—Same defaults, configuration, and scheduler-to-forwarding-class
mapping as on QFX Series access interfaces. Queue scheduling is a subset of
hierarchical scheduling.
•
Priority group (forwarding class set) scheduling—Same defaults and configuration
as on QFX Series access interfaces. Priority group scheduling is a subset of hierarchical
scheduling.
•
Tail-drop profiles—Same defaults and configuration as on QFX Series access
interfaces.
•
Code-point aliases—Same defaults and configuration as on QFX Series access
interfaces.
•
Rewrite rules—As on the QFX Series access interfaces, there are no default rewrite
rules applied to egress traffic.
•
Host outbound traffic—Same defaults and configuration as on QFX Series access
interfaces.
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.

Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
The default shared buffer settings and shared buffer configuration are also the same
as on QFX Series access interfaces, except that the shared buffer configuration is
global and applies to all access ports on all members of the Virtual Chassis. You cannot
configure different shared buffer settings for different Virtual Chassis members.
•
Similarities in CoS support on VCP interfaces and QFabric system Node device fabric
interfaces—VCP interfaces support full hierarchical scheduling (ETS). ETS includes:
•
Creating forwarding class sets (priority groups) and mapping forwarding classes to
forwarding class sets.
•
Scheduling for individual output queues. The scheduler defaults and configuration
are the same as the scheduler on access interfaces.
•
Scheduling for priority groups (forwarding class sets) using a traffic control profile.
The defaults and configuration are the same as on access interfaces.
•
No other CoS features are supported on VCP interfaces.
NOTE: You cannot attach classifiers, congestion notification profiles, or
rewrite rules to VCP interfaces. Also, you cannot configure buffer settings
on VCP interfaces. Similar to QFabric system Node device fabric interfaces,
you can only attach forwarding class sets and traffic control profiles to
VCP interfaces.
The behavior of lossless traffic across 40-Gigabit VCP interfaces is the same as the
behavior of lossless traffic across QFabric system Node device fabric ports. Flow control
for lossless forwarding classes (priorities) is enabled automatically. The system
dynamically calculates buffer headroom that is allocated from the global lossless
headroom buffer for the lossless forwarding classes on each 40-Gigabit VCP interface.
If there is not enough global headroom buffer space to support the number of lossless
flows on a 40-Gigabit VCP interface, the system generates a syslog message.
NOTE: After you configure lossless transport on a Virtual Chassis, check
the syslog messages to ensure that there is sufficient buffer space to
support the configuration.
NOTE: If you break out a 40-Gigabit VCP interface into 10-Gigabit VCP
interfaces, lossless transport is not supported on the 10-Gigabit VCP
interfaces. Lossless transport is supported only on 40-Gigabit VCP
interfaces.

Known Behavior
•
Differences in CoS support on VCP interfaces and QFabric system Node device fabric
interfaces—Although most of the CoS behavior on VCP interfaces is similar to CoS
behavior on QFabric system Node device fabric ports, there are some important
differences:
•
Hierarchical scheduling (queue and priority group scheduling)—On QFabric system
Node device fabric interfaces, you can apply a different hierarchical scheduler (traffic
control profile) to different priority groups (forwarding class sets) on different
interfaces. However, on VCP interfaces, the schedulers you apply to priority groups
are global to all VCP interfaces. One hierarchical scheduler controls scheduling for
a priority group on all VCP interfaces.
You attach a scheduler to VCP interfaces using the global identifier (vcp-*) for VCP
interfaces. For example, if you want to apply a traffic control profile (which contains
both queue and priority group scheduling configuration) named vcp-fcoe-tcp to a
forwarding class set named vcp-fcoe-fcset, you include the following statement in
the configuration:
[edit]
[email protected]# set class-of-service interfaces vcp-* forwarding-class-set vcp-fcoe-fcset
output-traffic-control-profile vcp-fcoe-tcp
The system applies the hierarchical scheduler vcp-fcoe-tcp to the traffic mapped
to the priority group vcp-fcoe-fcset on all VCP interfaces.
•
•
You cannot attach classifiers, congestion notification profiles, or rewrite rules to VCP
interfaces. Also, you cannot configure buffer settings on VCP interfaces. Similar to
QFabric system Node device fabric interfaces, you can only attach forwarding class
sets and traffic control profiles to VCP interfaces.
•
Lossless transport is supported only on 40-Gigabit VCP interfaces. If you break out
a 40-Gigabit VCP interface into 10–Gigabit VCP interfaces, lossless transport is not
supported on the 10-Gigabit VCP interfaces.
On a QFX5100 switch, CPU-generated host outbound traffic is forwarded on the
network-control forwarding class, which is mapped to queue 7. If you use the default
scheduler, the network-control queue receives a guaranteed minimum bandwidth
(transmit rate) of 5 percent of port bandwidth. The guaranteed minimum bandwidth
is more than sufficient to ensure lossless transport of host outbound traffic.
However, if you configure a scheduler, you must ensure that the network-control
forwarding class (or whatever forwarding class you configure for host outbound traffic)
receives sufficient guaranteed bandwidth to prevent packet loss.
If you configure a scheduler, we recommend that you configure the network-control
queue (or the queue you configure for host outbound traffic if it is not the
network-control queue) as a strict-high priority queue. Strict-high priority queues
receive the bandwidth required to transmit their entire queues before other queues are
served.
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
37
Release Notes: Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D10 for the EX Series and the QFX Series
NOTE: As with all strict-high priority traffic, if you configure the
network-control queue (or any other queue) as a strict-high priority queue,
you must also create a separate forwarding class set (priority group) that
contains only strict-high priority traffic, and apply the strict-high priority
forwarding class set and its traffic control profile (hierarchical scheduler)
to the relevant interfaces.
•
You cannot apply classifiers and rewrite rules to IRB interfaces because the members
of an IRB interface are VLANs, not interfaces. You can apply classifiers and rewrite
rules to Layer 2 logical interfaces and Layer 3 physical interfaces that are members of
VLANs that belong to IRB interfaces.

Layer 3 Protocols
•
On QFX5100 switches, if you use the next-table statement in the configuration of a
static route that is part of a virtual routing instance, the switch does not forward ICMP
packets destined to a route that is present in the inet.0 routing table. PR970895
•
On a QFX5100 switch, if you perform an in-service software upgrade on a QFX5100
switch with the virtual routing redundancy protocol (VRRP) configured and there are

When an IGMP leave is sent from a host to a QFX5100 switch, one packet per multicast
group is dropped during route programming. PR995331
OVSDB
•
On QFX5100 switches, in general, Layer 3 routes use per-prefix load balancing without
a routing policy that specifies that per-packet load balancing should be used. Note
that the default behavior is different for Layer 3 routes for remote VTEP reachability.
Layer 3 routes for remote VTEP reachability use per-packet load balancing, which
means that load balancing is implemented if there are ECMP paths to the remote
VTEP. PR1018814
•
If you enter a show configuration command after installing the OVSDB software package
(jsdn-i386-release) on a QFX5100 Virtual Chassis or VCF, you see the warning

Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Documentation Updates
VXLAN
•
On QFX5100 switches, the Layer 3 routes that form virtual extensible LAN (VXLAN)
tunnels use per-packet load balancing by default, which means that load balancing
is implemented if there are ECMP paths to the remote tunnel endpoint. This is different
from normal routing behavior in which per-packet load balancing is not used by default.
(Normal routing uses per-prefix load balancing by default.) PR1018814
•
On a QFX5100 switch with a VXLAN configured, if you add an interface to the VLAN
that the VXLAN is associated with or delete an interface from that VLAN, the switch
might drop traffic for devices connected to other interfaces in the same VLAN.

as the forwarding state for the (S,G) route points correctly to the uplink interface to
the RP. PR1023447

Preparing the Switch for Software Installation
Before you begin software installation using ISSU:
•
Ensure that nonstop active routing (NSR), nonstop bridging (NSB), and graceful Routing
Engine switchover (GRES) are enabled. NSB and GRES enable NSB-supported Layer
2 protocols to synchronize protocol information between the master and backup
Routing Engines.
To verify that nonstop active routing is enabled:
NOTE: If nonstop active routing is enabled, then graceful Routing Engine
switchover is enabled.
[email protected]> show task replication
Stateful Replication: Enabled
RE mode: Master
If nonstop active routing is not enabled (Stateful Replication is Disabled), see Configuring
Nonstop Active Routing on Switches for information about how to enable it.
•
Enable nonstop bridging (NSB). See Configuring Nonstop Bridging on Switches (CLI
Procedure) for information on how to enable it.
•
(Optional) Back up the system software—Junos OS, the active configuration, and log
files—on the switch to an external storage device with the request system snapshot
command.
Upgrading the Software Using ISSU
This procedure describes how to upgrade the software running on a standalone switch:
44
Copyright © 2014, Juniper Networks, Inc.
Migration, Upgrade, and Downgrade Instructions
To upgrade the switch using ISSU:
1.
Download the software package by following the procedure in the Downloading
Software Files with a Browser section in Upgrading Software.
2. Copy the software package or packages to the switch. We recommend that you copy
the file to the /var/tmp directory.
3. Log in to the console connection. Using a console connection allows you to monitor
the progress of the upgrade.
4. Start the ISSU:
•
On the switch, enter:
[email protected]> request system software in-service-upgrade
/var/tmp/package-name.tgz
where package-name.tgz is, for example, jinstall-132_x51_vjunos.domestic.tgz.
NOTE: During the upgrade, you will not be able to access the Junos OS
CLI.
The switch displays status messages similar to the following messages as the upgrade
executes:
warning: Do NOT use /user during ISSU. Changes to /user during ISSU may get
lost!

stage. Also, any links that go down and up will not be detected during a
warm boot of the Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE).
NOTE: If the ISSU process stops, you can look at the log files to diagnose
the problem. The log files are located at /var/log/vjunos-log.tgz.
5. Log in after the reboot of the switch completes. To verify that the software has been
upgraded, enter the following command:
[email protected]> show version
6. To ensure that the resilient dual-root partitions feature operates correctly, copy the
new Junos OS image into the alternate root partitions of all of the switch:
[email protected]> request system snapshot slice alternate
Resilient dual-root partitions allow the switch to boot transparently from the alternate
root partition if the system fails to boot from the primary root partition.
