Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.2 R4.
Specify backup paths for MPLS fast reroute (FRR) on an egress peer, which has traffic engineering enabled. Egress peer engineering directs core service traffic such as MPLS RSVP to a specific egress BGP peer. The ingress BGP peer can traffic-engineer the core inet unicast and inet6 unicast service traffic using BGP labeled unicast towards a specific egress BGP peer, which is also the AS boundary router.
Specify a backup path through another directly connected external BGP peer. The configured backup path provides MPLS fast reroute when the primary link fails, and the AS boundary router redirects the traffic received from the core to the this backup path. You can configure more than one backup path on the egress BGP peer. The specified backup paths are automatically installed into the MPLS forwarding table of the egress BGP peer configured with the egress traffic engineering feature.
You cannot use this option with the remote-nexthop option.
ip-forward option might cause forwarding loops if the IP route chooses an internal path. To avoid forwarding loops configure a virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instance with leaked external routes only, and use this VRF instance with the ip-forward option.
