enable mpls


Enables MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) on the switch.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



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 a SummitStack, the stack must meet the following requirements:
  • Each stack switch must meet the software and hardware requirements listed in the ExtremeXOS 22.2 Feature License Requirements document.
  • You must configure the enhanced stacking protocol on each Summit family switch.


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


The following command globally enables MPLS on the switch:

enable mpls


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.

Platform Availability

This command is available only on the platforms that support MPLS as described in the ExtremeXOS 22.2 Feature License Requirements document.
