Unable to apply QoS setting to MPLS router

we have a 4Mbps MPLS connection.I want to allocate 75% BW
for Silver traffic and 25% for gold traffic. when i tried to apply the
QoS Policy map to the external interface it is throwing the error

"I/f FastEthernet0/0 class DSCP-AF41 requested bandwidth
25%, available  0%"

policy-map QOS-PERCENT
 class DSCP-AF31
  bandwidth percent 75
  shape average percent 75
class DSCP-AF41
  bandwidth percent 25
  shape average percent 25

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The maximum reserved bandwidth defaults to 75% to allow for routing, Layer 2 overheads etc

To increase this use the

max-reserved-bandwidth percent xxx

Nope. it didnt helped buddy
sorry syntax is wrong should read

interface FastEthernet0/0
 max-reserved-bandwidth 100                  

have you tried that - does it take OK.?

if you reduce your two queues to 50% and 25% is that OK ?
