Hierarchy Level


Enable two-level equal-cost multipath next hops.

On QFX5110, QFX5120, EX4650, EX4400, and EX4100 switches, you must configure this statement for Layer 3 Ethernet VPN Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN-VXLAN) overlay networks when you configure pure type-5 routing. For more information about configuring pure type-5 routes, see ip-prefix-routes.


Configuring this statement causes the Packet Forwarding Engine to restart. Restarting the Packet Forwarding Engine interrupts all forwarding operations. Therefore, we strongly recommend using this configuration statement before the EVPN-VXLAN network becomes operational.

Required Privilege Level
