Configuring Routing Instances for an MBGP MVPN

To configure MBGP MVPNs, include the mvpn statement:

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

  • [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]

  • [edit logical-systems logical-system-name routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]

By default an MBGP MVPN routing instance is associated with both the multicast sender and the receiver sites. If you configure the receiver-site option, the routing instance is associated with only multicast receiver sites. Configuring the sender-site option associates the routing instance with only multicast sender sites.


When you configure the routing instance for the MBGP MVPN, you must configure MPLS LSPs (either RSVP-signaled or LDP-signaled) between the PE routers of the routing instance to ensure VPN unicast connectivity. Point-to-multipoint LSPs are used for multicast data forwarding only.
