label-switched-path-template (Multicast)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the LSP template. An LSP template is used as the basis for other dynamically generated LSPs. This feature can be used for a number of applications, including point-to-multipoint LSPs, flooding VPLS traffic, configuring ingress replication for IP multicast using MBGP MVPNs, and to enable RSVP automatic mesh. There is no default setting for the label-switched-path-template statement, so you must configure either the default-template using the default-template option, or you must specify the name of your preconfigured LSP template.


default-template—Specify that the default LSP template be used for the dynamically generated LSPs.

lsp-template-name—Specify the name of an LSP to be used as a template for the dynamically generated LSPs.
