Hierarchy Level


You can configure a scope policy at these two hierarchy levels only. You cannot apply a scope policy to a specific routing instance, because all scoping policies are applied to all routing instances. However, you can apply the scope statement to a specific routing instance at the [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name routing-options multicast] or [edit logical-systems logical-system-name routing-instances routing-instance-name routing-options multicast] hierarchy level.


Apply policies for scoping. The policy must be correctly configured at the edit policy-options policy-statement hierarchy level.


policy-names—Name of one or more multicast scope policies.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
