Hi All,

To revive this old thread, I'm building out some MPLS-TE tunnels on
15.3.3S code;

Does anyone know if ME3x00's support MPLS-TE FRR over SVIs and
EtherChannels yet; Is this in 15.4 or 15.3.3S3? If so I might be able
to push for an upgrade.

Also I saw this line on that page the ME3600s do have "Support for LDP
over TE tunnels for Layer 3 VPN traffic by entering the mpls ip
interface configuration command on the tunnel interface. The switch
does not support LDP over TE tunnels for Layer 2 VPN traffic" - What
happens with L2VPNs in this case? Do the PEs signal seperate PE-to-PE
LDP LSPs along side the TE LSPs?
