I am trying to set up a 2nd VRF on a 4507. When I go to do IP VRF<name> I get the error % Use 'vrf definition <name>' command. I went into vrf definition <name> and set up a RD, but then I am still unable to use the ip vrf command. I also cannot find any info on the vrf definition command.
You activated the ip routing first? Please, check this manual of the VRF configuration on a Cat 4500 series.
The command ip vrf < name > is replaced by the command vrf definition < name >. This is because "ip vrf" coul only support ipv4. ( actually, all commands that has "ip" is for ipv4 only ). So to support also ipv6 the new command was introduced. use it like this.
vrf definition test
route-target import 1:1
route-target export 1:1
