Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.

Default

Disabled.

Usage Guidelines

Enabling MPLS allows MPLS processing to begin for any enabled MPLS protocols (RSVP-TE and/or LDP).

While MPLS is transitioning to the enabled state, only the MPLS show commands are accepted.

Before you can enable MPLS on BlackDiamond 8800 series switches, the switch must meet the following requirements:
  • Each switch requires the specific software and hardware listed in the Feature License Requirements document.
  • You must configure the enhanced stacking protocol on the switch.
  • If unsupported modules are installed in the switch, we recommend that you remove them and unconfigure the appropriate slots using the unconfigure slot command before enabling MPLS. You cannot enable MPLS until the appropriate slots are empty or disabled with the disable slot command.
    Note

    Note

    When MPLS is enabled on a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch, you cannot enable any modules using the enable slot command that are incompatible with MPLS.
Before you can enable MPLS on a SummitStack, the stack must meet the following requirements:
  • Each stack switch must meet the software and hardware requirements listed in the Feature License Requirements document.
  • You must configure the enhanced stacking protocol on each Summit family switch.
    Note

    Note

    When MPLS is enabled on a stack, you can only add a MPLS-compatible Summit family switches to the stack.

Example

The following command globally enables MPLS on the switch:

enable mpls
