LLDP trasport over Pseudowire ASR9K

 

We are trying to transport LLDP over PW and CE devices can not see the LLDP neighbors one CE. Can anyone confirm ASR9K transport LLDP over PW as I did not find LLDP specific information on CCO and its not working ??

 

www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/asr9000/software/asr9k_r4-1/interfaces/configuration/guide/hc41asr9kbook/hc41ethi.html

 

We could only see STP neighbor with this setup but not LLDP

Topology :

CE(LLDP Enabled) ------- ASR903 (PW End A)---------MPLS-------------ASR9K( PW End B)----- CE( LLDP Enabled)

 

IF we move the link from ASR9K to ASR903 , LLDP & STP neighbors can be seen on CE.

 

ASR9K Configuration :

 

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9K#sh running-config int gig 0/5/1/1

Were you ever able to get it

Were you ever able to get it to work over the ASR9000?

 

Can anyone from Cisco provide any insight. 

 

This is starting to become a very common request from customers and haven't been able to get it it to work either.

hi atahar, tcalvin,few

hi atahar, tcalvin,

few comments, the command: l2protocol cpsv tunnel is not necessary for the asr9k, it was implemented for some backward catalyst compatibility but is no longer needed.

by default the a9k is transparent on l2 if the service is not configured locally, otherwise the packets are intercepted such as stp, cdp etc.

what seems a bit problematic in this config example above is the encap dot1q 100 on one end and the other end uses an encap default, that might make some vlans mis matched.
