VPLS - Not learning the local MAC/remote MAC over VFI.

I've configured MPLS L2VPN - VPLS Multipoint service in INE lab. VC labels are properly exchanged and the mesh of pseudowires are up. I don't see the local MAC address learned from local interface and the remote MAC addresses learned over the VFI. There is only one entry for FFFF.FFFF.FFFF to flood multi-destination frames into the bridging domain. Is it a problem with CSR1000v instance?

  • Issue is fixed after configuring the sub-interface in the CE's with the correct VLAN ID. But, OSPF struck in Exstart state and I tried changing that to EIGRP. EIGRP adjacency is formed between the neighbors and it is getting torn down with retry limit exceeded error. Any recommendations on MTU to fix this is appreciated.

    %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: EIGRP-IPv4 1: Neighbor (GigabitEthernet2.100) is up: new adjacency
    %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: EIGRP-IPv4 1: Neighbor (GigabitEthernet2.100) is down: retry limit exceeded
