Following is sh frame-relay pvc

PVC Statistics for interface Serial0 (Frame Relay DTE)

DLCI = 170, DLCI USAGE = LOCAL, PVC STATUS = DELETED, INTERFACE = Serial0.1

input pkts 0 output pkts 0 in bytes 0

out bytes 0 dropped pkts 0 in FECN pkts 0

in DE pkts 0 out DE pkts 0

out bcast pkts 0 out bcast bytes 0

pvc create time 00:02:48, last time pvc status changed 00:02:46

PVC Statistics for interface Serial1 (Frame Relay DTE)

DLCI = 100, DLCI USAGE = LOCAL, PVC STATUS = INACTIVE, INTERFACE = Serial1.1

input pkts 0 output pkts 0 in bytes 0

pvc create time 00:02:49, last time pvc status changed 00:02:49the output

I got the office router, now not in use, and checked for Frame-relay. Both circuits were in use, but now one PVC=Deleted and other one is PVC=INACTIVE , why. Please help. Tahir

I have this problem too.

Hi Tahir,

You need to configure the serial interfaces for frame-relay similarly to this:

interface serial0

no ip address

encapsulation frame-relay

no shutdown

interface serial0.1 point-to-point

ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x

frame-relay interface-dlci 170

no shutdown

interface serial1

no ip address

encapsulation frame-relay

no shutdown

interface serial1.1 point-to-point

ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x

frame-relay interface-dlci 100

no shutdown

Is everything alright with your serial cabling connections?

Cheers:

Istvan

That information is what the router sees from the frame-relay switch.

DLCI 170 shows deleted because the frame-relay switch does not have that DLCI configured. You have configured in your serial0.1

DLCI 100 shows inactive which means the frame-relay switch has it configured but the remote-end is not up.

Is the frame-relay switch in a lab or are you getting this DLCI information from a provider?

Hi Edison,

Deleted state Indicates that no LMIs are being received from the Frame Relay switch or that there is no service between the router and the Frame Relay switch.

Best regards, Tahir

Tahir,

Deleted means that you've configure a DLCI under the interface at your local router but the frame-relay switch has no information regarding that DLCI.

You can receive other DLCI information from the frame-relay switch, so you are receiving LMIs as long as the circuit is up.
