Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 8.5.


Specify the LSP template. An LSP template is used as the basis for other dynamically generated LSPs. This feature can be used for a number of applications, including point-to-multipoint LSPs, flooding VPLS traffic, configuring ingress replication for IP multicast using MBGP MVPNs, and to enable RSVP automatic mesh. There is no default setting for the label-switched-path-template statement, so you must configure either the default-template using the default-template option, or you must specify the name of your preconfigured LSP template.


default-template—Specify that the default LSP template be used for the dynamically generated LSPs.

lsp-template-name—Specify the name of an LSP to be used as a template for the dynamically generated LSPs.
