Routing instances in SRX550M 18.2R3

Thursday

Hi!

 

I have SRX550M with the softwarJUNOS 15.1X49-D170.4 built 2019-02-22 22:34:42 UTC

 

On my configuration I use the following command:

set routing-instances internet instance-type virtual-router

 

I want to upgrade it to

junos-srxsme-18.2R3-S2.9.tgz

 

Howerver on this link:

https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB21476&actp=METADATA 

 

there is information:

 

When upgrading from Junos 15.1X49-D170 to Junos 18.2 releases, the following features will not be available after the upgrade (...)

  • Virtual routing and forwarding instances security features support (SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, SRX550M, SRX1500, SRX4100, SRX4200, and vSRX)

Does it mean that my configration 

set routing-instances internet instance-type virtual-router

 

will not work any more? Can I configure this feature on Junos 18.2 in another way?

As far as I know, instance-type virtual-router is different from instance-type vrf

 

The documentation talks about "Virtual routing and forwarding instances (vrf)"

The mentioned limitation only apply if you are using Juniper SD-WAN orchestrator named Contrail Service Orchestrator (CSO). virtual-router routing-instances works perfectly fine with Junos 18.2 releases.

 

Full snippet of the notes from KB21476:

Spoiler
The following CSO / SD-WAN related features:
  • Application-based multipath support (SRX Series and vSRX)
  • Application quality of experience scaling support (SRX4100, SRX4200)
  • AppQoE support in high availability mode (SRX4100, SRX4200)
  • Application path selection based on link preference and priority (SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, SRX550M, SRX1500, SRX4100 SRX4200, and vSRX)
  • Virtual routing and forwarding instances security features support (SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, SRX550M, SRX1500, SRX4100, SRX4200, and vSRX)
  • VRF group in L3VPN traffic (SRX Series and vSRX)

I hope this clarifies.
