Virtual routing and forwarding

Virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) allows to partition a physical router into multiple virtual routers. The control and data plane are isolated in each virtual router (VR) so that traffic does not flow across VRs. VRF allows multiple instances of routing tables to co-exist within the same router at the same time.

OS 10 supports a management VRF instance, a default VRF instance, and up to 16 non-default VRF instances. Use the default and non-default VRF instances to configure routing.

You can move the management interface from the default to management VRF instance.

By default, OS10 initially assigns all physical interfaces and all logical interfaces to the default VRF instance.
