Juniper vMX – MPLS over lt interface

I was wondering if I can run MPLS over OVS, VXLAN tenant networks in Openstack (for example VLAN tagging won’t work in such case, not by default at least, didn’t have an option to test with vlan_transparent setting on network level). Wanted to quickly check it out between a pair of vMXes with static LSPs remembering I can run logical-systems or routing-instances interconnected between themselves with tunnel interface (lt). That works just fine but only with logical-systems.

LS-vmx01 lt-0/0/0.1<–>lt-0/0/0.2 vmx01 ge-0/0/2.0<–>ge-0/0/2.0 vmx02 lt-0/0/0.2<—lt-0/0/0.1 LS-vmx02

vmx01 cfg:

vmx02 cfg:

Main thing here was to set family mpls on lt-0/0/0 units and add lt-0/0/0.2 interface to protocols mpls.

Only after that POP entries appeared in routing and forwarding tables:
