Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 11.1 for the QFX Series.

Description

Set the broadcast address on the network or subnet. On a subnet you cannot specify a host address of 0 (0.0.0.0), nor can you specify a broadcast address (255.255.255.255). For example, in the statement set interface ge-0/0/0 unit 0 family inet address 10.1.1.0/24, the subnet address 10.1.1.0 has the host address of 0. Hence, you cannot configure this address. Similarly, for the subnet, you cannot use the broadcast address 10.1.1.255/24.

Default

The default broadcast address has a host portion of all ones.

Options

address—Broadcast address. The address must have a host portion of either all ones or all zeros. You cannot specify the addresses 0.0.0.0 or 255.255.255.255.
