This disclosure provides during re-setup of backup/Facility Bypass (FB) Label Switched Path (LSP) (tunnels) automatically making use of a Make Before Break (MBB) operation as and when SRLG(s) are updated on Traffic Engineering (TE) links. The auto re-setup of backup tunnels or FB tunnels maintains path diversity on SRLG changes in network; the MBB of backup or protection FB has minimal traffic impact in case the primary tunnel goes down during Diversity correction procedure; and runtime SRLG verification for path diversity of the backup LSP or FB tunnels is provided.
