I would like to change chassis description. Command show chassis hardware display the list of all hardware (also chassis) with interesting parameters (also description). It's possible to change eg. Chassis description? Below example:

user@host> show chassis hardware
Hardware inventory:

I cannot find an answer in Juniper decumentation and technical forums. I have only simulator of Juniper on GNS3 environment, which don't contain real hardware. Thus I cannot check in on real device. I suspect that this parameter is not editable.

This is not a description you can configure in JUNOS, it's a description which type of hardware it is. So you're using a GNS3 image (if that's the correct term, I'm not familiar with GNS3) which emulates a MX10-T.

  • Yes I'm using GNS3 image of junos software. But I would like to know if on real phisical device is possible to change this parameter?

  • No, as a I said you cannot change this. It's a description of a hardware component.
