We are trying to set up some isolated virtual networks using VRF-lite and mGRE, and ran into a problem. It looks like our brand new 6500 VSS system doesn't support NHRP. We are running 12.2(22)SXI1 on SUP720-10GEs. Without NHRP it looks like we need to make a bunch of point-to-point tunnels rather than a multi-point GRE tunnel :( . Am I missing something ??? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Dave,

according to feature navigator tool


DMVPN phase2 is supported in your hardware but only with Advanced Enterprise or Advanced IP services IOS versions

ADV ENT SERV SSH LAN ONLY s72033-adventerprisek9-mz.122-33.SXI1.bin 1024 1024

ADV IP SERV SSH LAN ONLY s72033-advipservicesk9-mz.122-33.SXI1.bin 1024 512

ADVANCED ENTERPRISE SERVICES SSH s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI1.bin 1024 1024

ADVANCED IP SERVICES SSH s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI1.bin 1024 1024

So you may need a feature set upgrade.

Hope to help
