MPLS TE RSVP explicit problem

Unanswered Question
Mar 13th, 2009

I have two routers connected in a lab via MPLS TE using RSVP. When i setup the tunnel to use explicit path-option

for example " tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 2 explicit identifier 2", the tunnel goes down and doesnt come up until i change it to use" tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 2 dynamic". Any ideas why this is not working?

Franco,

The most obvious reason would be that the explicit path you are using is wrong.

Could you please post the explicit path option and a "show mpls traffic-eng tu " when the tunnel fails to come up.

Hi

assuming this is what are tested:

interface Tunnel0

tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 1 dynamic

tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 2 explicit identifier 2

This configuration should correctly select the dynamic path. The path-option number could be called priority, with path-option 1 as 'best'

Hi,

Could you post the "show ip explicit-paths" output. I couldn't locate the explicit path identifier 2 config from your running-config. May be you missed to configure the explicit path?

Sample config for R1:

Router(config)#ip explicit-path identifier 2

Router(cfg-ip-expl-path)#next-address 192.168.1.2

Explicit Path identifier 2:

1: next-address 192.168.1.2

Router(cfg-ip-expl-path)#do show ip exp

PATH 2 (strict source route, path complete, generation 3)

1: next-address 192.168.1.2

Router(cfg-ip-expl-path)#

Thanks,

Vijay
