VRF: when SSHd is VRF bound all commands are executed in VRF context
Open, HighPublicBUG


All three VyOS routes have a MGMT VRF bound to eth0. Also SSH is bound to this VRF.

When you connect via SSH and run e.g. ping, ssh, traceroute those commands are launched inside this MGMT instead of the default VRF which I would expect.

Command like ping, traceroute or ssh (op-mode wrapper needed) should be launched via ip vrf exec default <command> unless a VRF is specified.
