Enable an Ethernet VPN (EVPN) on the routing instance.


designated-forwarder-election-hold-time seconds

Time in seconds to wait before electing a designated forwarder (DF).

  • Range: 1 through 1800 seconds


Use least preference value for DF election. By default, the preference-based DF election is based on the highest preference value configured.


Configure an Ethernet VPN E-TREE service.


Enables bud node support on the device. That is, this device can function as both a transit and egress PE.


Enabling or disabling p2mp-bud-support may result in a temporary loss of packets. This occurs because changing bud node support affects the forwarding state in the routing instance, which causes the forwarding table to be rebuilt.

pmsi-tunnel-endpoint pmsi-tunnel-endpoint

Configure the PMSI tunnel endpoint on the ingress router to use the loopback address (router ID) that is in the MPLS network as the PMSI tunnel endpoint for EVPN type 3 routes.
