Looks like there is some type of RSVP object/encoding that is not being

I'm trying to build an l3vpn between a J-series (in a lab, will be m-series
in production) and an E-series. Config seems straightforward enough, but for
some reason the two routers are not establishing themselves as rsvp
neighbors. From what I can tell, there is an LSP up between the two routers
in one direction only. The routers are connected back-to-back via Ethernet.

This is what things look like on the J-series:

I don't have any idea what "RSVP error, subcode 14" means, and I can't find
any reference to it in the Junos or Junose docs or anywhere else online.
I've been through the config on both routers, and I can't see any obvious
problems - although this config is fairly new to me, so I might just be
missing something. Can anyone suggest anything else to try?
