    Hi All,


    Does anyone tried latest vQFX release 18.1R1.9 ? 

    Seems to be Juniper supplied second copy of RE image instead of PFE.

    Isn't it ?

    Hi snp.


    I just brought the vQFX PFE 18.1R1.9 image up in Vagrant today.  I do confirm it is indeed RE and not PFE.

    Where we can report this? On Github https://github.com/Juniper/vqfx10k-vagrant   or via my Juniper SE?

    Note: The RE image on vQFX 18.1R1 boots fine but configuration of em4 interface is being ignored for some reason.

    Hi snp and J-NET members.


    I informed my Juniper SE about issue (PFE image being RE image in reality) and asked him where to report issue. He asked internally. Let's see if there will be some answer.


    The vQFX10K 18.1R1 is not published on Vagrant cloud yet (17.4R1 is latest there  - version 0.3).

    Hi Sergeiu.


    I haven't found the realease notes for vQFX10K versions 17.4R1 or 18.1R1. That was one of my questions to Juniper SE as well (1. PFE image being RE image, 2. interface em4 on RE (light mode) not working and 3. release notes/documentation missing) . I will share once I will know more.


    I do expect the supported feature set is aligned with physical QFX10K for these Junos version (throughput is limited on vQFX though). There can be certain limitations indeed (e.g. I noticed emX interfaces are not supported under routing-instances).


    Hope this helps a bit.
