> I$,1ry(Bm trying to wrap my head around MPLS and have built a small lab.  I understand how provider routers label switch packets and how provider edges use VRF instances and their distinguishers and targets to address each other.  Per the Juniper examples I have LDP and RSVP enabled on all the transit interfaces along with MPLS and obviously the correct interface families (MPLS) attached to the same transit interfaces.  

Are you sure you need RSVP and bandwidth reservation? If you can do
without this, a basic MPLS network with LDP but without RSVP is quite
a bit easier to build and understand.
