Community members, I feel a bit stuck.
I'm trying to create 3 VRFs and transit networks from my external firewall for different entities, and running into a bit of an issue
I've gone through the guide for setting up Virtual routing instances.
Virtual Routing Instances
But it still leaves a lot to be desired, and errors when I attempt to commit the following configuration: (Interface was default before the edits below)
set interfaces ge-0/0/40 vlan-taggingset interfaces xe-0/0/40 unit 0 vlan-id 300 family inet address 10.200.3.1/30 set routing-instances R2 interface xe-0/0/40.0
(Eventually will do R3/R4 as units 1/2)
Commit Check output:
[edit interfaces xe-0/0/40 unit 0 family] 'ethernet-switching' Family ethernet-switching and rest of the families are mutually exclusive[edit routing-instances R2 interface] 'xe-0/0/40.0' Interface with 'interface-mode' is allowed only in a virtual-switch or mac-vrf instanceerror: configuration check-out failed: (statements constraint check failed)
It looks like you have family ethernet-switching and family inet both enabled together on xe-0/0/40.
Can you please share the output of "show interfaces xe-0/0/40"?
I ended up seeing where I had a fat-finger in the configuration. This was for the XE, Not GE.
Secondly, I had inheritance set for default port configuration, so I removed that, and setting up the routing-instance worked.
That should have all been XE, not GE. I see where I fat-fingered that. The VRF/Routing instance is established now. The problem was that I had inheritance set on the port I was attempting to configure, once I removed inheritance from the port, I was able to get the connectivity working.
What are you trying to do ? What interface are you trying to configure?
You are editing both ge-0/0/40 and xe-0/0/40 here, which belongs to the same physical port, but is not the same interface (depending of the SFP or SFP+ inside the SFP cage of the EX).
It's clear that you already have a unit 0 with ethernet switching on xe-0/0/40. A simple show interfaces xe-0/0/40 in config mode would show that.
If you don't need it, just delete it before. If you want to keep it, you will have to rely on a new vlan using an IRB layer3 interface inside it.
