routing-instance (Syslog)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the routing instance name for the routing instance that you want the syslog client to use. If you want to use the reserved non-default management routing instance mgmt_junos, make sure you configure the management-instance statement.


You must also define the routing instance you want to use under the [edit routing-instances] hierarchy level.

Starting in Junos OS Evolved Release 20.1R1 and 19.4R2, if you are sending syslog messages to a remote host that is identified by its IP address at the [edit system syslog host ip-address] hierarchy, you only need to configure the management-instance statement to use the mgmt_junos routing instance. You do not need to configure the mgmt_junos routing instance at the [edit system syslog host ip-address routing-instance] hierarchy.
