    While creating VRF on MX router following commit check output pops up.

     

    "RT Instance: Only loopback interface is supported under vrf routing instances in triton mode."

     

    What does this mean?

    Hi,

     

    Triton mode refers to "ethernet Services mode" this is configured under
    the chassis:
    ===============================
    chassis {
    network-services ethernet;
    }
    ===============================

    To be able to add interfaces into an L3 VPN routing instance you will
    need to switch to "IP services mode"
    The default IP Services mode provides complete functionality, while the
    Ethernet Services mode only provides support for Layer 2.5 functions.

    ===============================
    chassis {
    network-services ip;
    }
    ===============================

    Since the "ip" mode is the default you could also simply remove the
    "network-services ethernet" statement.

    Here are 2 links on Ethernet Services Mode and its limitations.

    Hello, I'm running vMX  JUNOS 16.2R1-S2.1 Kernel 64-bit  JNPR-10.3-20161102.338446_build and seeing this issue.

    I set the chassis to set network-services enhanced-ip and reboot and still seeing the same issue -

     


    admin@vMX-JUNOS-01> show configuration chassis
    fpc 0 {
    lite-mode;
    }
    network-services enhanced-ip;

    admin@vMX-JUNOS-01>

    admin@vMX-JUNOS-01> configure
    Entering configuration mode
    The configuration has been changed but not committed

    [edit]
    admin@vMX-JUNOS-01# set routing-instances customer-1200 interface ge-0/0/1.0

    [edit]
    admin@vMX-JUNOS-01# commit
    [edit routing-instances customer-1200 interface]
    'ge-0/0/1.0'
    RT Instance: Only loopback interface is supported under vrf routing instances in triton mode.
    error: configuration check-out failed

    Thanks for any help,

    Bill Wade

    Hello BillW,

     

    Have you added license for the vMX ?

     

    Thanks,
