Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 17.4R1 for QFX5110 switches.


Enable two-level equal-cost multipath next hops. This statement is required for a Layer 3 Ethernet VPN Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN-VXLAN) overlay network when pure type-5 routing is also configured. It is also strongly recommend that you configure this statement whenever pure type-5 routes are enabled on QFX5110 switches. For more information about configuring pure type-5 routes, see ip-prefix-routes.


Configuring this statement causes the Packet Forwarding Engine to restart. Restarting the Packet Forwarding Engine interrupts all forwarding operations. Therefore, we strongly recommend using this configuration statement before the EVPN-VXLAN network becomes operational.
