In some datacenter use cases, priori knowledge of what PE/NVE to be configured for a given L2 or L3 service may not be available. This document describes how EVPN can be extended to discover what L2 or L3 services to be enabled on a given PE/NVE, based on first sign of life FSOL packets received on the PE/NVE ports. An EVPN route based on the FSOL packets will be sent to a controller to trigger a push of the related L2/L3 or subscriber service configuration to be provisioned on the PE/NVE and on the switch ports.
