Eompls connectivity issue between Me-6524 and 7606-S

Unanswered Question
Mar 31st, 2009

my problem is one side vc is up and the other side was down when I configure EoMPLS the configuration like this

ME-6524

interface GigabitEthernet1/13

switchport

switchport access vlan 101

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

end

interface Vlan101

no ip address

xconnect 10.1.1.3 101 encapsulation mpls

end

the problem is On 6524, when I invoke the show mpls l2 vc 101 detail.

the next-hop marked " Next hop: Invalid ADDR"

Why?.. Why not up on ME6524

the mpls ldp bind ok, forwarding ok,

when I do show ip route on ME6524, It was ok.

Help me..

I have this problem too.

Hello Seungyeop,

first of all I would change config of port g1/13

int gi1/13

switchport mode access

so that it is clear you have a port in Vlan101 in STP forwarding state.

Hope to help

Giuseppe

I'd deleted switchport mode access,

and I made a trunk port in gi 1/13

but the symptom is same thing like before.

Do you have a another action plan?

Harold Ritter Tue, 03/31/2009 - 19:43

Seungyeop,

Configuring the xconnect on an SVI interface enables local switching and requires additional hardware. On the 7609, the ES20 enables you to do that.

The solution would be to configure the xconnect under the physical interface on the ME6524.

Hi Ritter,

Thank you for your reply.

We are testing H-VPLS. On the testing, we met upper problem, When we change to ME3750 from ME6524, it looks fine. So, we assume it would be ME6524 issue. BTW,In 6524 datasheet on cisco web, ME6524 also can support MPLS VC Type 4. I am confusing what is correct. So I need helps experts.(looks like you :-)

Unfortunately, We should use MPLS VC type-4 on ME6524 with H-VPLS. :-(

CE-UPE(6524)-NPE(7606-S)-P(GSR)-P(GSR)-PE-NPE(7609)-UPE(6524)

Your help in this issue will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kiwon,Lee

Kiwon,

You can use VC type 4 on the ME6524. You need to configure the xconnect statement under a dot1q subinterface as follow:

interface GigabitEthernet1/13.101

encapsulation dot1q 101

xconnect 10.1.1.3 101 encapsulation mpls

Hi Ritter,

It looks fine after change config. I assume that it is normal. It would be better for customer.

Thank you very much.

Kiwon.
