Hi,

it's supported, but you need MPLS feature I believe. I'd recommend you to enable the trial license.

Hi Grosjean, I've already enabled the trial license and made other labs with MPLS feature enabled, but for L3VPN, when you try to define a new VR of type VPN-VRF, this options is not present in the virtual EXOS, but is possible to define only the type VRF.....

Hi Grosjean, I confirm you that works also on my  VMs...in my previous tests probally there were a problem with my configuration script that has not enabled the trial license on the VMs before to run the command ...
Thanks for your confirm.
