Can you clarify what you mean by this? Configuring interfaces is manually is common for several reasons including cost allocation as you alluded to earlier. Before adding MPLS/VPLS it is well worth getting the OSPF under full control!Hey, thanks for the reply. We've looked at BFD which needs each interface to be configured under Interfaces. When we take manual control over each interface, our OSPF doesn't work as we expect.
We're based in the UK if that affects things? Keen to get you onboard however if the price is right.No problem...I was responding to the OP = bluestu as it seemed like he needed some professional help with MPLS and OPSF convergence tuning.
Good luck with your MPLS rollout and don't hesitate to give us a shout if you need anything!
This should be simple to fix. You my want to detail a question on this and upload some info. It should be easy to resolve and you would certainly want it resolved before starting on MPLS. Many of the "MPLS" issues that we are asked to resolve turn out to be underlying stability issues rather than an issue with LDP/MPLS/VPLS.When we take manual control over each interface, our OSPF doesn't work as we expect.
