Meaning

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.

Cause

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.

Action

Examine the strict hop address configuration and make any necessary changes.
