Is there any way that I can force the path for a EoMPLC VC other that playing with the IGP ? Also since the mpls core is redundant I want the have a VC via one path and if that path fails the VC should stay down ... is this possible ?

I believe Harold missed the /products/ folder in the link as a typo.

Anyways here is the link again which he wants you to use.

You can actually achieve this by using MPLS TE and the tunnel selection feature.

You would first configure a tunnel, configure the pseudowire to use this specific tunnel and not to take any other path if the tunnel goes downand then configure this specific pseudowire-class on the xconnect statement.

Please refer to te following URL for more information the tunnel selection feature.


Hope this helps,

Sorry about that. Thanks Swaroop for posting the proper URL.

I think I've understand it. Just create the tunnel from PE to PE via a predefined path and a pseudowire-class using that tunnel and just apply the pw-class to xconnect. I wouldn't use TE since I'm not very familiar to it but I guess I will have to start look into it more closely.

Thanks for the help,
