A network administrator observes that the MPC cannot develop a shortcut. An ATM analyzer attached to the network shows that the MPC never issues a shortcut request, even though the 10 frames per second threshold is crossed. Why doesn’t the MPC issue a shortcut request? The show mpoa client command displays as shown in Example 10-20.
The MPC cannot issue a shortcut request because it cannot establish a relationship with an MPS. This results from the absence of an LEC to MPC binding. Notice in the last line of the output that no LANE clients are bound to mpc2. Assuming that a valid LEC exists, you can fix this with the lane client mpoa client command.
