Optionally, you can specify preference, CoS, and bandwidth values for the secondary path, which override any equivalent values that you configure for the LSP (at the [edit mpls label-switched-path] hierarchy level).


path-name—Name of a path that you created with the path statement.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
