Hey Pavani,


Thanks yes, that those forwarding tables and lsdb dumps look correct as far
as I can tell. 


One thing, we (and I think the ERS) will display fib's etc. with the
hostname instead of the sysid where we can for readability. I think you are
advertising the hostname as just an ascii version of the sysid? So our
console displays show the sysid twice .. which makes for harder debugging.
Any chance you could make the sysid's something a bit more informative, i.e.
spirent-1, spirent-2 .. something like that?


Oh, on Monday I'll put up a static IP where you guys can telnet to have a
peek at the cli's of the different devices. I'll send out the address and
telnet userid/password on Monday so those of you not on site should be able
to see the network grow as we plug in and turn on the emulators.

Hello All,

This week we were successfully able to demonstrate Spirent's SPB
implementation with Huawei and Alcatel Lucent switches in Ottawa and
Calabasas respectively. The  topology included 25 simulated nodes behind
emulated router  (network diagram attached). The switches established
adjacencies and calculated shortest path trees for the nodes.Please find the
console output from Huawei switch and the corresponding capture.

So far from the preliminary tests and results, looks like we are good to go
for the interop testing next week.
