JNCIA Question of the Week #6 – Commit Requirements

Q:

With a clean Juniper router (one that is using the factory default configuration), what must be set before the router will allow you to commit configuration changes? How is this option set?

A:

Chris got it right, of course. Root passwords are required to save configuration changes in Junos. The command to do so is:
set system root-authentication plain-text-password

If you’re reading this and preparing for JNCIA-Junos, be sure you know this. Even if it’s not on the exam, it’s a pretty basic skill. Don’t use Brain Dumps!
