RFC 8466, "A YANG Data Model for Layer 2 Virtual Private Network (L2VPN) Service Delivery", October 2018

Source of RFC: l2sm (ops)

Errata ID: 6384
Status: Rejected
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 8 says:

identity pbb-evpn {
   base service-type;
      "Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) service type using
       EVPNs as specified in RFC 7432.";

It should say:

identity evpn {
   base service-type;
      "EVPN service type as specified in RFC 7432.";


The mention of PBB is a mistake, it should be normal (non-PBB) EVPN, given that Section 3.1 lists EVPN and not PBB-EVPN among the supported L2VPN types. However, the reference to RFC 7432 in the original text box above is correct, as that RFC deals with EVPN, not PBB-EVPN.

(n.b. see erratum 5921 that has the "opposite" interpretation, i.e. that pbb-evpn is correct but that the RFC number is wrong)

I think that this errata report can be regarded as a duplicate of 5922, that I have resolved as "held for document update". Certainly, I don't think that it is possible to infer consensus that the YANG module is wrong by defining pbb-evpn but the accompanying text is correct.
