active-interface (VPLS Multihoming)


Hierarchy Level


Specify a multihomed interface as the primary interface for the VPLS site. If there are multiple interfaces, the remaining interfaces are activated only when the primary interface goes down. If no active interfaces are configured at the site level, it is assumed that all traffic for a VPLS site travels through a single, nonmultihomed PE router.


In the VPLS documentation, the word router in terms such as PE router is used to refer to any device that provides routing functions.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.

For FEC 128, use the [edit routing-instances instance-name protocols vpls multi-homing] hierarchy level.
