Configuring VPN Graceful Restart

To implement graceful restart for a Layer 2 VPN or Layer 3 VPN, perform the configuration tasks described in the following sections:

To configure graceful restart globally, include the graceful-restart statement at the [edit routing-options] hierarchy level. To configure the duration of the graceful restart period, include the restart-duration statement at the [edit routing-options graceful-restart] hierarchy level.

[edit]routing-options {graceful-restart {disable;restart-duration seconds;}}

To disable graceful restart globally, include the disable statement at the [edit routing-options graceful-restart] hierarchy level.

Configuring Graceful Restart for the Routing Instance

For Layer 3 VPNs only, you must also configure graceful restart for all routing and MPLS-related protocols within a routing instance by including the graceful-restart statement at the [edit routing-instances instance-name routing-options] hierarchy level. Because you can configure multi-instance BGP and multi-instance LDP, graceful restart for a carrier-of-carriers scenario is supported. To configure the duration of the graceful restart period for the routing instance, include the restart-duration statement at the [edit routing-instances instance-name routing-options].

[edit]routing-instances {instance-name {routing-options {graceful-restart {disable;restart-duration seconds;}}}}

You can disable graceful restart for individual protocols with the disable statement at the [edit routing-instances instance-name protocols protocol-name graceful-restart] hierarchy level.
