Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4. In Junos OS Release 17.3R1, the 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. The provider-tunnel mdt hierarchy is now hidden for backward compatibility with existing scripts.
