Hi guys just a quick refresher on frame relay pvc when I do a show frame PVC 301
I see that dlci as inactive does that tell me that their is a problem within the carriers network? I'm assuming so as I see the interface as down down.
Most probably this is due to a missing crossconnection on the provider side, review the following:
ACTIVE > The PVC is operational and can transmit packets.
INACTIVE > The PVC is configured, but down. A missing cross-connection in the FR cloud or the remote end down - Problem in the path to the remote end.
DELETED > The PVC is configured only on the router(DTE) and no status is received from the switch via LMI - Problem on the directly connected FR Switch.
STATIC > If LMI is disabled (no keepalive - or back-to-back FR without LMI - neither sides acting as a FR hybrid switch (DCE), where also no keepalive is required to disable LMI processing).
 Are you using the physical interface or a subinterface.
