import-labeled-routes (Routing Instances VPLS)


Hierarchy Level


(MX Series routers with MPCs and MIC interfaces only) Specify one or more routing instances where MPLS paths (pseudowire labeled routes) are leaked from the mpls.0 routing table in the primary routing instance to the local routing-instance-name.mpls.0 routing table.

This capability is useful in an L2VPN/VPLS configuration when the remote PE router is learned from the IGP in a nondefault routing instance, because L2VPN/VPLS installs ingress-labeled routes only in the primary mpls.0 table.

When L2VPN/VPLS traffic is received on the core-facing interface in a nondefault routing instance, the router performs a lookup in the table that corresponds to that interface, routing-instance-name.mpls.0. Because the routes are not leaked by default, no routes are found in the routing-instance-name.mpls.0 routing table and all the incoming traffic is dropped.



Name of a nondefault routing instance where you want routes leaked from the primary MPLS routing table.
