    virtual-router vrName | :vrfName | vrName:vrfName

    no virtual-router vrName [ wait-for-completion [ waitSeconds ] ]

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Creates a virtual router or accesses the context of a previously created virtual router or a VRF. The no version deletes the virtual router, and the router defaults to the default virtual router. Issuing a no version that specifies an existing VRF only displays the error message: “ Cannot delete a VRF with this command.” You must use the no ip vrf command to remove a VRF.

    Note: In Domain Map Configuration mode, the virtual-router command has been replaced by the router-name command and may be removed completely from Domain Map Configuration mode in a future release.


    • vrName—Name of the virtual router; a string of 1–32 alphanumeric characters
    • :vrfName—Name of a VRF in the current VR context; a string of 1–32 alphanumeric characters
    • vrName:vrfName—Name of a VRF in the context of a VR other than the current VR
    • wait-for-completion—Specifies (in the absence of waitSeconds) that the CLI waits for completion of the no version operation before it returns a prompt, regardless of how long that takes
    • waitSeconds—Number of seconds, in the range 1–64000, that the CLI waits before it returns a prompt, regardless of whether the no version operation has been completed
