Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.


Create a routing table.

Explicitly creating a routing table with the routing-table-name statement is optional if you are not adding any static, martian, aggregate, or generated routes to the routing table and if you also are creating a routing table group. Simply including the passive statement to indicate that a routing table is part of a routing table group is sufficient to create it.

Note: The IPv4 multicast routing table (inet.1) and the IPv6 multicast routing table (inet6.1) are not supported for this statement.


If you do not specify a routing table name with the routing-table-name statement, the software uses the default routing tables, which are inet.0 for unicast routes and inet.1 for the multicast cache.


routing-table-name—Name of the routing table, in the following format:

  • protocol is the protocol family. It can be inet6 for the IPv6 family, inet for the IPv4 family, iso for the ISO protocol family, or instance-name.iso.0 for an ISO routing instance.
  • identifier is a positive integer that specifies the instance of the routing table.
Default: inet.0

Required Privilege Level
