The switch was configured as route-only which was causing the MRPControl packets to be dropped. On the NetIron XMR and NetIron MLX Series routers, route-only is the default condition. Because route-only is the default condition, it will not be displayed in the configuration. If users use
no route-only to enable switching, the
no route-only command will then be displayed in the configuration.
Note:a useful command to display MRP diagnostics is
sh metro <ring-id> diag.
