interface (Routing Instances)


Hierarchy Level


For virtual router routing instances, configure an interface.

  • You must configure only interfaces from the Node devices assigned to the network Node group. If you try to configure interfaces from the Node devices assigned to server Node groups, the configuration does not commit.

You can assign a flexible tunnel interface (FTI) interface to support inner-header lookup after GRE decapsulation.
