Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Name of the routing table into which the JUNOS Software should import routing information. The first routing table name you enter is the primary routing table. Any additional names you enter identify secondary routing tables. When a protocol imports routes, it imports them into the primary and any secondary routing tables. If the primary route is deleted, the secondary route also is deleted. For IPv4 import routing tables, the primary routing table must be inet.0 or routing-instance-name.inet.0. For IPv6 import routing tables, the primary routing table must be inet6.0.

In JUNOS Release 9.5 and later, you can configure an IPv4 import routing table that includes both IPv4 and IPv6 routing tables. Including both types of routing tables permits you, for example, to populate an IPv6 routing table with IPv6 addresses that are compatible with IPv4. In releases prior to JUNOS Release 9.5, you could configure an import routing table with only either IPv4 or IPv6 routing tables.
