ipaddress Specifies the endpoint of the LSP.



Usage Guidelines

This command creates internal resources for an RSVP-TE LSP.

The LSP name must begin with an alphabetical character and may contain alphanumeric characters and underscores (_), but it cannot contain spaces. The maximum allowed length for a name is 32 characters. For name creation guidelines and a list of reserved names, see Object Names in the Switch Engine 32.3 User Guide .

The ipaddress specifies the endpoint of the LSP. The LSP is not signaled until a path is specified for the LSP using the configure mpls rsvp-te lsp lsp_name add path command. When multiple LSPs are configured to the same destination, IP traffic is load-shared across active LSPs that have IP transport enabled. The maximum number of RSVP-TE LSPs that can be created is 1024.



The LSP must be created before it can be configured.


The following command creates an RSVP-TE LSP:

create mpls rsvp-te lsp lsp598 destination
