Explicit Route: Format Error Event


LSP Event

Explicit route: format error

Sample Output


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.
