Hi Berni,

which routing policy do you have?

If you have exchanged base rp you can not disable the DLS.

Try to configure the Long Distance with CLI.

Re: Long distance design

DLS is enabled by default when using exchange-based routing and to disable it you'll have to change to port-base routing (which is an offline operative) . I do not know why it recommends to disable DLS with CR, what is current FOS release? I would rather disable CR than disable DLS.
