VRs on a basic enterprise access switch? You guys are really crazy.

"Gustav Ulander" <gustav.ulander at telecomputing.se>:

Yea lets make the customers job harder partly by not supporting old
features in the next incarnation of the platform (think VRF support) . Also
lets not make them work the same so that the customer must relearn how to
configure them.
Excellent way of actually pushing the customer to also look at other

Thanks to all the replies so far!

Regarding a VC Licence -

Here are the features which require a EFL:

Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) IGMP (Internet Group Management
Protocol) version 1 (IGMPv1), IGMPv2, and
IPv6 routing protocols: Multicast Listener Discovery version 1 and 2 (MLD
v1/v2), OSPFv3, PIM multicast, VRRPv6 Multicast Source Discovery protocol
(MSDP) OSPF v2/v3 Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) dense mode, PIM
source-specific mode, PIM sparse mode Real-time performance monitoring
(RPM) RIPng (RIPng is for RIP IPv6) Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol

Which seems straight forward, but they have this bit at the end -
Note: You require a paper license to create an EX2300 Virtual Chassis. If
you do not have a paper license, contact Customer Support.

And looking at the EX2300 packing list:

* Paper license for Virtual Chassis (only for the models EX2300-C-12T-VC,
EX2300-C-12P-VC, EX2300-24T-VC, EX2300-24P-VC, EX2300-48T-VC, and

So it appears I may need to ensure i'm ordering EX2300-48P-VC if I want to
stack 'em, I need to check the finer details with Juniper.
