Hmm, I think then that the no-forwarding routing-instance only uses the rib-group to import the routing information into the local RIB but it is not eligible to be passed on unless, as you discovered, it is redistributed as a type 5 into the main inet.0. The other alternative is to have your other routing-instance universally and then use rib-groups everywhere to transfer the info to the local inet.0 rib.
A third option would be to use a virtual-router (or logical-router on J-series, which don't support virtual-routers, IIRC) and have your two 'processes' in different logical-routers. If you then create a physical connection between the two, you could create a direct adjacency from between the two processes. However, that would lead to routing information from the main inet.0 being leaked back into instance.inet.0

thank you for your suggestions. J-series routers do not support logical routers. They do support "virtual-router". As a matter of fact, when you define a routing instance, there is the possibility to choose the "instance-type virtual-router".
I will give a closer look to this problem, for the moment we have a solution. Refinements will be left for the future.
I thank you again for your precious help.

Am planning to implement a setup with multiple ospf process in MX80 router.
I have already created one ospf process with ID#10 on this router.
I want to create new process with ID#20 with area-nssa and import the routes into inet.0 and also redistribute the routes IBGP to advertise the routes to other router.
Hope we can configure new process ID#20 creating routing instance and define domain-id #20.
Can anyone share me configuration for this above requirement.
Also pls tell me can i create this new process when am already running normal ospf process in this router??

Hi Tizius, look at the following post about multiple ospf process. This is a translation example from a Cisco configuration to a Juniper configuration. This works, i test this in lab. If you are a Cisco guy will understand better the ios and junos configuration translation.
