VRF lite and MPLS VRFs

We have a CE router connected to PE router. The CE router is connected via 2 links to the PE router, because we need to create two VRFs on the PE for the traffic coming from the CE to separate the traffic, so we have one vrf per link. We are running OSPF between CE and PE.. Now we need to further separate the traffic up to the CE, so I’m thinking of using the VRF lite on the CE.. Can MPLS work with the VRF lite, and how to map the VRF lite VRFs on the CE to the MPLS VPN on the PE?

Is there any config examples?

Thanks in advance


Re: VRF lite and MPLS VRFs

VRF Lite and MPLS-VPN act independently so they can work independently. And there is no specific need for mapping. If link is for VRF A on PE so you can make it part of vrf A in CE as well. Both VRFs are independent of each other.

THis document is for 4500 but logic holds the same.
