ATOM LFIB Inconsistency

Unanswered Question
Jul 5th, 2008


When configuring L2 VPN over MPLS, I have noticed in some text documentation, MPLS config in Cisco IOS, that when viewing the LFIB via “show mpls forwarding-table” the L2VPN circuit details will show “none” as the outgoing interface, whereas in other text, “L2VPN VPN Architecture” the same command will show the actual CE outgoing interface when viewing the LFIB.

I have tested this on dynamips, and it also did not show the outgoing interface, but passed the traffic correctly.

Can anyone advise on why there are differences when viewing the LFIB as far as L2VPN are concerned?

Is this hardware or software relevant?

Thanks very much.


I have this problem too.

It could be due to different software. I am able to see the details when using 6500 SXH release train...
