the tunnel is setup between two routers in area 0 (R1 and R6) and you enabled MPLS TE only in area 0:
router ospf 1
mpls traffic-eng router-id Loopback0
mpls traffic-eng area 0
So I assume the condition of your tunnel is not depending on the virtual link at all (R1-R3-R5-R6 is all area 0, right?). Have you checked RSVP settings on all relevant interfaces? Each router should be configured with at least:
mpls traffic-eng tunnel
!adjust to your hardware, repeat for each interface
as there is really only one virtual link between R3 and R4, then the tunnel is not depending on it. Just shut down the interface between R3 and R4 and monitor the tunnel. The tunnel should come up if everything is confiured correctly because the remaining network is all area 0.
If the tunnel does not come up with area 1 removed, then the problem has nothing to do with the virtual link at all. Do normal MPLS TE trouble shooting to achieve a working tunnel between R1 and R6. Once the tunnel is up then enable the R3-R4 interface and the OSPF virtual link again to check, whether it has any effect on your MPLS TE environment.
Question: Have the phone connected and can ring out-but no sound coming from the handset - analog home phone - phone makes connection and pick up at the other end is ok. Can you help?
