How to configure MCT with VPLS on Brocade CER.
First we need to set up the mpls interface.
router mpls mpls-interface e1/1 ldp-enable
Now we need to set up vlan for the VPLS under the MPLS process.
vpls Test_VLAN 1000 cluster-peer 192.168.1.2 vpls-peer 192.168.1.5 vlan 1000 untagged ethe 1/2 tagged eth 1/3
The Cluster peer is the peer we will be doing MCT-VPLS with where as the vpls-peer we are just doing VPLS with. We define ports we wish to be tagged and untaged on this vlan and then we setup the MCT part.
cluster MCT-VPLS 1 rbridge-id 101 l2vpn-peer 192.168.1.2 rbridge-id 102 client-interfaces delay 30 deploy client agg-vlans rbridge-id 11 client-interface ethernet 1/3 deploy
We first define the cluster name and number. We then assign an rbridge-id to our self. we then define the peer as a l2vpn peer with there unique rbridge-id and deploy the cluster.
We can then verify if this is working using “show mpls vpls breif redundancy”.
