L2vpn with vlan swap not working. Cisco and Juniper interop.

Hi

I made a Ethernet l2vpn over my MPLS network (with PE Juniper M320).

The PE (M320) is connected in both sides with a Cisco switch and behind a router.

This is the net design

[router-a]--<v141>--[sw1]--<trunk>--[m320]--MPLS--[m320]--<trunk>--[sw2]--<trunk>--[sw3]--<v185> --[router-b]

The problem: if I keep the same vlan-id in both side it works without problems, if it's needed a different vlan (ie in the net design I put v141 and v185) and I config vlan swapping in the juniper interface (802.1q-ccc), in the remote Cisco switch I get a pvst+ problem:

#sh spanning-tree vlan 185

VLAN0185

Spanning tree enabled protocol ieee

------------------- ---- --- --------- -------- --------------------------------

Gi8/1 Desg BKN*4 128.449 P2p *PVID_Inc --- this is the trunk between switch and M320 in site-b

Any idea ?

Re: L2vpn with vlan swap not working. Cisco and Juniper interop.

HI,

With L2VPN Draft Martini (Circuit Cross Connect) Vlan swapping , u shouldnt have such a problem. what should happen is that traffic tagged with 185 is swapped with 141 at M320 and vice versa. The question is why u are doing Vlan Swapping here??

Pls clarify more..

Re: L2vpn with vlan swap not working. Cisco and Juniper interop.

Hi Mohamed

the reason since I'm doing swapping is that my customer has in site1 vlan 141 and in site2 vlan 185 and wants an additional lan extension... (if it was my decision I'd use the same vlan)

In cisco.com I found this:

-----------------

Error Message SPANTREE-2-RX_1QPVIDERR: Rcved pvid_inc BPDU on 1Q

port [chars] vlan [dec]

Explanation This message indicates that the 1Q-trunking port has received at least one 1Q-tagged spantree Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) frame with an inconsistent transmitting VLAN ID to the receiving port VLAN ID. [chars] is the module number/port number and [dec] is the VLAN number.

Recommended Action Either reconfigure the receiving port VLAN ID to the same VLAN ID of the peer port, or reconfigure the peer port VLAN ID to the same VLAN ID of the receiving port.

-----------------

But this cannot be the solution.

Re: L2vpn with vlan swap not working. Cisco and Juniper interop.

Hi Ric,

Although this is not the correct approach for designing a LAN extension, d I really dont know What extension u would accomplish here?? U mainely merging between Vlans , This approach is typically done when u want to Isolate different Customer's Vlans or Migrating but it shouldnt be the Optimal.

However, Spanning tree is blocking vlan 185 on that port, Do u have any redundant link towards the M320? what is the allowed Vlans on that Port as well as the peer trunking port?

Re: L2vpn with vlan swap not working. Cisco and Juniper interop.

Hi Mohamed,

no redundant link are in place.

SPT is blocking (blk) due to vlan inconsistancy (bkn --> broken).

No vlan filter is in place.
