    Hi all,


    I have already found the solution for this issue but it is not working for me. So, I am configuring up some VRFs that require a physical interface interaction rather than the loopback and stumled on this issue when trying to commit:


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


    The resolution on these boards is at this location:




    When running the command "show chassis network-services" I do get the following results:


    Network Services Mode: Enhanced-Ethernet


    So, I enter the command "set chassis network-service enhanced-ip", so, this should allow the ge interface to be utilised in the vrf, but I am still getting the same error and that is because the chassis thinks it is still in "enhanced-ethernet" mode.


    So, given that I have completed what was recommended before, anyone got any ideas or at least how I can remove the "enhanced-ethernet" from the Network Services Mode so that it is enhanced-ip instead?


    I am running version: 18.2R1.9 on the eve-ng virtualisation and it is an MX.

    Have you rebooted the device after configuring "set chassis network-service enhanced-ip" ?

    Because for this configuration to take effect device needs to be rebooted.

    Hi Nadeem,


    Apologies, I forgot to mention that, yes, I have rebooted with no difference.


    My understanding is that with vMX you need to have a license installed for this, but did not think this was applicable in the eve-ng virtualisation as we are utilising an actual Junos OS.


    I will check the eve-ng site and see if there is anything there, but this is a problem otherwise.
