enable vpls health-check vccv

enable vpls vpls_name health-check vccv


This command has been replaced with the following command: enable l2vpn [vpls vpls_name | vpws vpws_name] health-check vccv .

This command is still supported for backward compatibility, but it will be removed from a future release, so we recommend that you start using the new command.


Enables the VCCV health check feature on the specified VPLS.

Syntax Description

vpls_name Identifies the VPLS for which health check is to be enabled.


Health check is disabled.

Usage Guidelines

Health check must be enabled on both ends of a PW to verify connectivity between two VPLS peers. Both VCCV peers negotiate capabilities at PW setup. A single VCCV session monitors a single PW. Therefore, a VPLS with multiple PWs will have multiple VCCV sessions to multiple peers.

VCCV in ExtremeXOS uses LSP ping to verify connectivity.


The following command enables the health check feature on the VPLS instance myvpls:

enable vpls myvpls health-check vccv


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available only on the platforms that support MPLS as described in the ExtremeXOS and Switch Engine 31.7 Feature License Requirements document.
