802.1ag support on FastIron platforms

I am trying to implement OAM on a FastIron SX 8 and am unable to find any documentation on this. Specifically I want to set the SX8 we have in our Lab as a MIP. With the upstream device being a XMR which is also a MIP while the downstream goes to a Cisco Metro-E CE device. The only commands I can see that even remotely have anything to do with Metro-E/OAM/CFM functionality is the tag-type command. However, this does not help me in creating a MIP so that I can have fault detection, isolation and verification. Current rev of code we are running in this environment is 7.400C. Any help offered would be great, thanks!

Hi Samantha,

I'm afraid the FSX currently doesn't support 802.1ag nor does it have a way I could find to be setup as you outlined above (as a MIP). I'm checking to see if this something which might be coming in the future though.
