"The Frame Relay switching enhancement feature currently does not support SVC switching functionalities. Presently, only PVC switching is supported."

Feature Navigator says the same - FR SVC Switching not yet supported :(

Thanks for help,

if you just want to connect two routers back to back without a frame relay network in the between (for example another IOS router configured as a FR switch) there are two ways -

1) disable LMI keepalive on the interface. This stops router from sending or expecting LMI traffic so the interface will stay up permanently.

router 1

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

no keepalive

...

router 2

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

no keepalive

...

2) use the following configuration on one router to configure it as a frame relay DCE so it interfaces directly to the other frame relay DTE device -

frame-relay switching

interface serial X/Y

encapsulation frame-relay

frame-relay intf-type dce

you would still use PVC's via the same DLCI to pass traffic between each router.
