Configuring Peer Interfaces in OSPF and RSVP

 

After you establish LMP peers, you must add peer interfaces to OSPF and RSVP. A peer interface is a virtual interface used to support the control adjacency between two peers.

The peer interface name must match the peer peer-name statement configured in LMP at the [edit protocols link-management] hierarchy level. Because actual protocol packets are sent and received by peer interfaces, the peer interfaces can be signaled and advertised to peers like any other physical interface configured for OSPF and RSVP. To configure OSPF routing for LMP peers, include the peer-interface statement at the [edit protocols ospf area area-number] hierarchy level. To configure RSVP signaling for LMP peers, include the peer-interface statement at the [edit protocols rsvp] hierarchy level.
