Hi all.

I've tried a number of things and the problem still exists.

I've tried moving the L3 config off an SVI directly on the point to point interface:
interface GigabitEthernet0/22
description MPLS INTERFACE
no switchport
mtu 3200
ip address
ip ospf network point-to-point
ip ospf 1 area 0
mpls traffic-eng tunnels

I've tried creating an L3VPN link to the Brocade PE

I've tried enabling LDP over the TE tunnel.

All of the above give me the same error:
ME3600X#sh mpls l2transport vc detail
Local interface: VFI DARREN-TESTING vfi up
  Interworking type is Ethernet
  Destination address:, VC ID: 3200, VC status: down
    Last error: MPLS dataplane reported a fault to the nexthop

The LSP itself is up on both sides. The Brocade also assumes that the VPLS to the ME3600X is up:
SSH at par2.lem1#sh<mailto:SSH at par2.lem1#sh> mpls vpls id 3200 | include
Peer address:, State: Operational, Uptime: 3 min

LSPs from the ME3600X side:

ME3600X#sh mpls traffic-eng tunnels  brief
Signalling Summary:
    LSP Tunnels Process:            running
    Passive LSP Listener:           running
    RSVP Process:                   running
    Forwarding:                     enabled

TUNNEL NAME                      DESTINATION      UP IF     DOWN IF   STATE/PROT
par2.lem1                 -         Gi0/22    up/up
TO-ME3600X                 Gi0/22    -         up/up

LSP ping works over both from both sides. I really don't know what I'm missing here

Hi Darren,
Maybe it has something to do with the te-tunnel.
Do you get the same error without the te-tunnel? Or when you enable 'mpls
ip' on the te-tunnel please?
Is there a tunnel in the opposite direction as well?
