configure vr vrf_name vpn-id 3_byte_oui:4_vpn_index


This command configures a globally unique identifier for a VPN VRF.

Syntax Description

vrf_name Specifies the name of a VPN VRF.
3_byte_oui Specifies an organizationally unique identifier (OUI). The IEEE organization assigns this identifier to companies. The OUI is restricted to three bytes and must be entered in hexadecimal format.
4_vpn_index Identifies the VPN within a company. This VPN index is restricted to 4 bytes and must be entered in hexadecimal format.


VPN ID is not configured for VRFs.

Usage Guidelines

The VPN ID uniquely identifies a VPN. This command is only applicable for a VPN VRF. Each VRF configured in a PE router can have a VPN ID. Use the same VPN ID for the VRFs on other PE routers that belong to the same VPN. Ensure that the VPN ID is unique for each VPN in the Service Provider network.

The oui and vpn index parameters must be entered on the CLI in hex format.


The following example assigns VPN ID ac:9f3c8 to a VRF named "corporate-extreme":

configure vr corporate-extreme vpn-id ac:9f3c8
