request vmhost mode



Select the operational mode of the device from a pre-defined list of modes (compute, hybrid, or throughput) or specify a mode-name for a custom mode.

  • Starting from Junos OS Release 19.3R1, if the same physical CPU is used for both VNFs and the Junos OS or device components, the request to change the mode fails and an error message is displayed. For example:

  • When you upgrade the software image that has a VNF CPU conflict to Junos OS Release 19.3R1 by using the CLI upgrade option, the upgrade succeeds and the VNF configuration is applied. The VNF CPU conflict is reported by JDM only if you issue a commit command. You must modify the VNF configurations accordingly.
