domain-type (Bridge Domains)


ACX Series and MX Series

SRX Series


Define the domain type bridge for a Layer 2 bridge domain.


There is only one domain type bridge, that can be configured on SRX Series Firewalls. Domain type bridge is not enabled by default. An SRX Series Firewall operates in the Layer 2 transparent mode when all physical bridge domains on the device are partitioned into logical bridge domains.


Starting with Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D10 and Junos OS Release 17.3R1, the CLI domain-type is not available.


Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D10 and Junos OS Release 17.3R1, the hierarchy [edit bridge-domains bridge-domain-name] is renamed to [edit vlans vlan-name]. For detailed information about the modified hierarchies, see Enhanced Layer 2 CLI Configuration Statement and Command Changes for Security Devices.
