10.1.16T215 is the bootrom not the actual flash code. Per Jijo Panagat, you need to run flash code with an R in it like SPR08090f.bin because that is your Layer-3 firmware (R = Router).
SPS08090f.bin for example is Layer-2 firmware (S = Switch)... Does NOT do
Also, you need to have at least one (1) operational up/up interface in the VLAN that has the VE attached to it.
vlan 123 name test by port
untagged ethe 1/2/1
router-interface ve 123
interface ve 123
ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.224.0
^^^ Above is a /20 example
It will add 10.1.0.0/20 to your routing table as DIRECT (directly-conneccted) via ve 123
However, it will ONLY add that to the routing table if untagged e 1/2/1 is up in this example. Do a "show interfaces brief"
I hope that helps.
