MPLS VPN driving me mad!

I am testing MPLS VPNs in the lab, with a view to rolling it out in the core provider network. I am having difficulty connecting a single VPN. Everything looks as it should. I have two sites pointing a default route out. I have all the VRF information configured. The MP-iBGP sessions seem to work and the VRF routing tables are holding all the routes i expected, i just cannot ping across from one site to the other. Core label switching works okay, and the static routes are being redistributed. I am also redistributing connected and static subnets within the BGP address-family. Does anyone have any ideas so i can finally get a nights sleep, thanks Ian

I have managed to solve this problem. The answer lay with the IOS release. I had 12.2T enterprise loaded on the core routers which i believed would be okay, however an conact from Cisco recommended i loaded an ST image which solved all the problems without any configuration changes.

First make sure that MPLS is running on all interfaces where the traffic will pass. Sh mpls int . It should read operational yes.

You need to have a /32 route on all routers in the MPLS cloud for your PE routers. I use a loopback address that is injected into my IGP. Even non MPBGP routers need to have the specific /32s.

One other tip, make sure you have your MTU set to 1526 or above on Ethernet interfaces 1518+4+4.
