It is possible to cold swap between 2 different MX models

 

But is it possible to cold swap from Z1 to MX68CW for example ?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Replace Z1 by MX68CW

Only 1 active MX or Z device in a network at a time.

 

This should work.

Re: Replace Z1 by MX68CW

Certain config items will be persistent when swapping MX/Z devices and others will need to be re-added. Some examples of configurations that will remain:

 

- Subnets/static routes

- Global Bandwidth limits & traffic shaping

- L3 firewall rules

 

Other items like AutoVPN will need to be reconfigured, as well as any features available on the 68CW not available on the Z1 (content filtering, Threat Protection, port settings, etc).
