This works fine and dandy - however I am trying to establish a method whereby I can make the state of the SVI follow the state of the VC. Whether or not the VC status is up or down, the SVI (Vlan2001) will go into an UP/UP state as soon as the "xconnect" is applied. This can cause other various issues that I won't go into at this time.
I have looked into Ethernet CFM, OAM, IP SLA and BFD but haven't grasped exactly how either will accomplish this, due impart probably to my inevitable misunderstanding of much of what I have read.
As per my understanding the state of the SVI is not dependent on xonnect but on any one available up/up Ethernet L2 Port on which the corresponding L2 VLAN is allowed..I don't think personally "xconnect" statement has anything to do with SVI State..If we compare it with a LAN enviornment the SVI stays UP/UP without xconnect depending on any one available L2 Port belonging to the same VLAN.
Now coming to the part of the SVI State following the VC State I think Cisco Event Applet Manager can be useful to help us..Below is a good link for same..
Varma, I appreciate your response. I understand your belief that the SVI interface would be in an UP state assuming it was a member VLAN of a trunk port, for example. However, that is not the case. In this scenario, VLAN 2 is not. There are actually no dot1q ports on the 7600. I am using MPLS and TE-Tunnels (there is a core in the middle comprised of Cat6500s). On the 7600 specifically, the configuration is as simple as:
interface vlan 2
I have seen eemp used in some example and I didn't even think of that. I will give that thought a thorough read.

Internet security is important with the increasing attacks that are happening every day. Many internet and browsing security solutions exist, but some are not very easy to use or maybe the question is how can I enable them?
