Backup Interface dont work ... pvc dont change state

Hi all,

Serial link goes down, but backup interface dont come up.

When i saw "show frame-relay pvc", the pvc was not changed state, nevertheless the "show ip int brief" shows me a down down for Serial1/0.1 ...

The router is a Cisco 1760 with a c1700-ipbase-mz.123-13a.bin ios.

I have other routers in other sites wich works perfectly...

Any ideas ?

Best Regards,


interface Serial1/0.1 multipoint

bandwidth 512

backup delay 1 1

backup interface Dialer1

frame-relay map ip 16 broadcast


interface Dialer1

encapsulation ppp

no ip split-horizon

dialer in-band

dialer map ip name colectora_backup broadcast 2xxxxxxxx

dialer hold-queue 10

dialer-group 1

no cdp enable

Re: Backup Interface dont work ... pvc dont change state

Setup your router interface cards such that the interface w/"physical-layer async" comes before the interface it will be used to back up. It will then get initialized before the "backup interface" command.

Implementing dial-on-demand routing (DDR) backup on a router that uses

Network Address Translation (NAT) involves more configuration than is

neccessary for regular DDR backup. This is because the router must translate packets to and from the "inside" network using different "outside" addresses depending on whether the primary or backup link is active." ... "Make sure that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can provide you with two different IP addresses or subnets. Use one IP address or subnet for the DSL connection and the other for the backup ISDN connection. IP addresses on the two dialer interfaces need to be explicitly assigned and cannot be negotiated during PPP negotiation. This means that the ip address negotiated command is not permitted under the dialer interfaces.
