[c-nsp] Question on ASR9K feature licenses

Oh and the VRF license is actually per line-card! 
So not only you have to buy two expensive LCs with extended buffers where
you'd like to terminate MPLS L3VPNs. 
- You also need to buy the L3VPN license for each of the cards. 
Though if you use bundle interfaces XR won't complain as it does not keep
track of bundle-to-LC mappings ( -same applies for (r)LFA unfortunately). 

However the L3VPN licenses are just honor based so you basically pay just to
get a rid of the occasional syslog msg :)

Subject: [c-nsp] Question on ASR9K feature licenses


I'm having trouble finding the right answers to licenses on the ASR9000.
Hoping someone on the list below can help:

1) If we have the Infrastructure VRF license only - does that mean:
     a)  We can configure an MPLS L3VPN for up to 8 VRFs?
     b)  Or does that mean we can configure 8 VRF-lite instances?

2) What license is required (if any) for:
     a) MPLS L2 VPNs (VPLS, P2P EoMPLS) ?
     b) MPLS Traffic Engineering?
