Mode: Configuration Mode


'contains-node' copies all charisteristics of the reference node, including the name of the reference node.

Compared to 'contains' which only copies all children nodes and not any charateristics of the reference node, for example, help message, flags, etc..

This feature is useful when a feature needs to be supported under logical-systems and routing-instances. It allows a whole stanza of configuration in the master instance to be available under the logical-system or routing-instance context.


        object oldie {
            help "Old object";
            flag oneliner;

            attribute word {
                help "An arbitrary string";
                type string;

        object juniper-config {
            object newbie {
                help "Newbie section";
                flag remove-empty;

                contains-node oldie;
