I've setup BGP signaled VPLS between a couple of CCR-1009's running 6.20.
BGP signalling works correctly and the VPLS tunnels are created successfully. They are added to the correct bridge as expected, however the vpls ports are inactive in the bridge configuration, so no traffic will pass.
Note that the vpls ports are D for dymanic which is correct, but they have I for inactive on them.
[admin@PM-BB-00] /interface bridge> port print Flags: X - disabled, I - inactive, D - dynamic # INTERFACE BRIDGE PRIORITY PATH-COST HORIZON 0 ether4 ak 0x80 10 none 1 ether6 wl 0x80 10 none 2 ID vpls7 ak 0x80 50 1 3 ID vpls8 wl 0x80 50 1
What can make a vpls port come up in an inactive state?
VPLS configuration on the PM router is:
(I note that the site-id=1 is missing from this output, but the GUI confirms it has a site-id of 1).
/interface vpls bgp-vpls add bridge=ak bridge-horizon=1 export-route-targets=1:1 import-route-targets=1:1 \ name=bgp-vpls1 route-distinguisher=1:1 add bridge=wl bridge-horizon=1 export-route-targets=2:2 import-route-targets=2:2 \ name=bgp-vpls2 route-distinguisher=2:2
and on the pair router it's:
/interface vpls bgp-vpls add bridge=pmr bridge-horizon=1 export-route-targets=1:1 \ import-route-targets=1:1 name=bgp-vpls1 route-distinguisher=1:1 \ site-id=5
Thanks for any help.
