Configures a tunnel to use a specified L2TPV3 tunnel policy and specified critical resources

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


use [critical-resource|l2tpv3-policy]
use critical-resource <CRM-NAME1> {<CRM-NAME2>} {<CRM-NAME3>} {<CRM-NAME4>}
use l2tpv3-policy <L2TPV3-POLICY-NAME>


use critical-resource <CRM-NAME1> {<CRM-NAME2>} {<CRM-NAME3>} {<CRM-NAME4>}

use critical-resource <CRM-NAME1> {<CRM-NAME2>} {<CRM-NAME3>} {<CRM-NAME4>}

Specifies the critical resource(s) to use with this tunnel

  • <CRM1-NAME> – Specify the first critical resource name (should be existing).

  • <CRM-NAME2/3/4> – Optional. Specify the second/third/fourth critical resource names. Maximum of four critical resources can be monitored.

Note: In case of tunnel initiator, L2TPv3 tunnel is established only if the critical resources identified by the <CRM-NAME1>.................. <CRM-NAME4> arguments are available at the time of tunnel establishment.
Note: In case of L2TPv3 tunnel termination, all incoming tunnel establishment requests are rejected if the critical resources specified by the <CRM-NAME1>.............. <CRM-NAME4> arguments are not available.
use l2tpv3-policy <L2TPV3-POLICY-NAME>

use l2tpv3-policy <L2TPV3-POLICY-NAME>

Associates a specified L2TPV3 policy with this tunnel

  • <L2TPV3-POLICY-NAME> – Specify the policy name.
