Configuring LSP Paths

LSP paths consist of ordered set of nodes through which MPLS packets travel. You can specify the LSP paths for RSVP tunnel if you want to use static LSP paths. To add LSP Paths, follow these steps:

  1. In the Junos Scope main window, click Provisioning > MPLS/GRE Tunnels. The MPLS/GRE Tunnels dialog box appears.

  4. From the Device Name drop-down, select the name of the device to which the LSP Path will be applied.
  5. In the Name text box, enter a name for the LSP Path. This field is mandatory.
  6. In the Comment text box, enter a description for the LSP Path. This field is optional.
  7. In the Enter IP Address text box, enter the IP address of the next hop node, and choose one of the following status from the drop-down list adjacent to the Enter IP Address text box:
    • Strict—Indicates that the next hop must be adjacent.
    • Loose—Indicates that the next hop is not necessarily adjacent.
  8. Click Add to add the new node to the Path.
  9. Repeat Steps 6 through 8 to add multiple nodes.
  10. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to specify the sequence of nodes in the path.
  11. To remove a node from the Path, select a node and click Remove. You can click Remove All to remove all the nodes that you have added.
  12. Click Save to save the path information

    Note: When you click Save, the path is saved only in the Junos Scope database. The configuration for the path will be pushed to device only during Provisioning of MPLS/GRE tunnels

  13. Click Reset to go back to the last saved configuration for the path.
