[MX/PTX/TX] System does not warn of out-of-range situation after commit

0

0

Article ID: KB30802 KB Last Updated: 24 Mar 2016Version: 1.0
Summary:

Even though a configured VPLS site-identifier parameter is greater than site-range, the configuration appears to be committed successfully; no any error messages are logged or displayed. However, the VPLS connection is out of range and goes down. This article describes the cause of this behavior and explains that it is expected.

Symptoms:

When a VPLS is configured with the site-identifier parameter greater than the site-range, the VPLS connection will be out of range and will go down. However, the configuration is accepted without any error message being logged or displayed. Customers receive no warning or error message displayed during the commit operation.

Normal behavior: In the following example, the site-range is 20 and site-identifier is in range.

TEST2 {
    instance-type vpls;
    interface ge-0/1/8.0;
    route-distinguisher 6.6.6.6:1;
    vrf-target target:10:60;
    protocols {
        vpls {
            site-range 20; 
            interface ge-0/1/8.0 {
                 encapsulation-type ethernet;
            }
            no-tunnel-services;
            site test {
                site-identifier 19; 
            }
        }
    }
}

The VPLS session is up without any problem. To verify this, run the command show vpls connections.

Cause:

The Junos OS system does not check the VPLS site-range parameter during the commit check.

Solution:

This is expected behavior. Please check the VPLS site-identifier parameter before committing the configuration.
