Issue Description
Which Interfaces Can I Configure a BFD Session On?
Solution
In V200R001C00, only Ethernet interfaces support BFD sessions.

In V200R001C01 and later versions, the following interfaces support common BFD sessions:
  • Physical interfaces: Layer 3 Ethernet interfaces, serial interfaces (including synchronous SA interfaces, E1/T1 interfaces, CE1/CT1/PRI interfaces, CE3 interfaces, and CPOS interfaces), POS interfaces, ATM interfaces (including ADSL interfaces, VDSL interfaces, E1-IMA interfaces, and G.SHDSL interfaces).
  • Logical interfaces: Ethernet sub-interfaces (including Dot1q sub-interfaces and QinQ sub-interfaces), dialer interfaces, VLANIF interfaces, Layer 3 Eth-Trunk interfaces, IP-Trunk interfaces, MP-Group interfaces, MFR interfaces, IMA-group interfaces, serial sub-interfaces, channelized serial sub-interfaces, IMA-group sub-interfaces, POS sub-interfaces, ATM sub-interfaces, MFR sub-interfaces, and Eth-Trunk sub-interfaces (Dot1q sub-interfaces).
NOTE:
When a physical Ethernet interface consists of multiple sub-interfaces, a BFD session can be established on the physical Ethernet interface or each sub-interface.

In V200R001C01 and later versions, the following interfaces support multicast BFD sessions:
  • Physical interfaces: Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet interfaces
  • Logical interfaces: Layer 2 Eth-Trunk interfaces and Layer 3 Eth-Trunk interfaces
NOTE:
Multicast BFD sessions cannot be established on Layer 2 Ethernet interfaces, Layer 2 Eth-Trunk interfaces, or Layer 3 Eth-Trunk interfaces of AR200 or AR1200's SRUs.
When a physical Ethernet interface consists of multiple sub-interfaces, a BFD session can be established on the physical Ethernet interface or each sub-interface.
