Routed-pw not working on IOS 15.2(4)S1

Dear all,

I'm running 15.2(4)S1 and tried to configure routed pseudowires on a 7600-ES20-GE3CXL card. My first config was as simple as:

interface Vlan404

ip address

xconnect 404 encapsulation mpls pw-class  C7600-TUNNEL01

With this config, interface VLAN404 doesn't even come up, so it's not possible to have the routed pseudowire working, as the local attahcment circuit (local port) of the pseudowire is always down.

My approach was configuring a routed-VPLS service instead. The following configuration worked fine:

interface Vlan404

ip address

xconnect vfi service1


l2 vfi service1 manual

vpn id 404

neighbor pw-class C7600-TUNNEL01


As soon as I add the ip address to the vlan404 interface, the interface comes up and the 'pseudowire' of the H-VPLS service is up as the local attchment circuit is up. Of course, the remote attachment circuit was up in advance.

May you, please, help me and tell me if I forgot anything in the routed-pseudowire original configuration to enforce that interface vlan404 came up?

Thanks in advance
