Viewing Pre-Staging Rules


Pre-staging rules contain criteria for classifying the MPLS role of each device and recommending which physical interfaces should be UNI interfaces. For each recommended UNI interface, the system recommends its primary loopback address.

These pre-staging rules are predefined and cannot be configured. They are neither selectable nor configurable. However, you can modify the results of the rules before committing the recommended assignments to the database.

The following topic shows how to view pre-staging rules. You can view a summary of all pre-staging rules, see a summary, or view details of a specific pre-staging rule.

    The Rules window appears.

    The Rules window lists all the pre-staging rules by type, along with the name and a brief description of each rule.
