Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4. mdt hierarchy was moved from provider-tunnel to the provider-tunnel family inet and provider-tunnel family inet6 hierarchies as part of an upgrade to add IPv6 support for default MDT in Rosen 7, and data MDT for Rosen 6 and Rosen 7.
