Rerouting of SR LSPs
If you create an LSP by using REST APIs and allow rerouting when network topology changes, anycast SIDs are used for implementing the path policy instead of node SIDs. Anycast SIDs are used because when the topology changes, the existing SID list can still implement a path policy by shifting the LSP from one node in the anycast group to another node in the anycast group.
Option to Ignore Virtual Trunk Links During Device Collection Task
An option Use Tunnel for Virtual Links is added to the Task Options of a Device Collection task. If the Use Tunnel for Virtual Links option is selected for a device collection task, virtual links in the topology are ignored by the NorthStar controller during device collection.
