As an !!! employee !!! of Juniper I would expect that you would know that
the "res" command is part of the JunOS shell and NOT part of the underlying

Most especially since you're "helping" what sounds like a member of the
press, therefore you SHOULD have / SOME / idea of what you are doing.

What respect I had for Juniper's products has been ruined of last as this is
NOT the first time that a Juniper employee has posted such completely
idiotic emails to this list.
    Please do tell what are the employment requirements? Know how to press
the "ON" button on a kettle?
