Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3.

Description

Create a bridge interface on a compute node. A bridge interface is used to connect virtual machine interfaces to a network. If the bridge-interface-list option is specified, then the virtual machine interface attached to this bridge is connected to the physical network in the bridge-interface list.

Both bridge and Ethernet interfaces are referred to as network interfaces. If only one network interface is configured, it is the management network interface by default. If more than one network interfaces are configured, you must specify one, and only one, as the management network interface.

Configuration changes to network interfaces are nondestructive, that is, such changes do not require a reboot of the compute node. The exception to this is if it is a management interface. Changes to management interfaces are destructive and require a reboot of the compute node.

Options

bridge bridge-name

Name of the bridge interface.

interface bridge-interface-list

A list of interfaces on the host OS. All the interfaces in the bridge-interface list are in the same network. There can be a maximum of four interfaces in a bridge-interface list.

For management interfaces, changing this option is destructive.

management

(Optional) Configures the specified interface as the management interface of the compute node. There can be only one management interface in a compute node. If there is only one network interface, it is by default the management interface. Configuration changes made to a management interface require a reboot of the compute node.

The remaining statements are explained separately.
