This LSP event indicates an LSP setup failure in which a Path message error in the the ERO was received by a router along the LSP path.
This LSP event can be caused by several factors:
An incorrectly formed ERO in the RSVP Path message.
A strict hop address specified in the middle of an ERO that is not contiguous.
An unsupported subobject in the ERO of a router along the LSP path.
The hop indicated by the RSVP hop object does not match the hop indicated by the ERO.
Examine the strict hop address configuration and make any necessary changes.
