BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

The BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering feature enables the provider edge (PE) device to suppress attaching the multicast VPN (MVPN)-related extended communities to routes learned from a customer edge (CE) device or redistributed in a virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instance for a specified neighbor.

Information About BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

Overview of BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

VPN routes carry special extended communities (source autonomous system [AS] extended community and virtual routing and forwarding [VRF] route import extended community) to support multicast VPN (MVPN). Legacy provider edge (PE) devices interpret the source AS extended community as old style multicast distribution tree (MDT). You can attach the extended communities when the prefix is created. After the BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering feature is enabled, this allows the PE device to suppress these extended communities. You can use this functionality to suppress extended communities from being sent for Subsequent Address Family Identifier (SAFI) 128 routes and instead use SAFI 129. Devices with SAFI 129 must be able to identify the source AS extended community correctly.

How to Configure BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

Configuring BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    router bgp autonomous-system-number

    4.    address-family ipv4 vrf vrf-name

    5.    unicast-reachability [source-as | vrf-route-import] [disable]

    6.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.

     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 router bgp autonomous-system-number


    Example:
    Device(config)# router bgp 45000
     

    Enters router configuration mode for the specified routing process.

     
    Step 4 address-family ipv4 vrf vrf-name


    Example:
    Device(config-router)# address-family ipv4 vrf vpn1
     

    Specifies the IPv4 address family and enters address family configuration mode.

    • Use the vrf keyword and vrf-name argument to specify the name of the VRF instance to associate with subsequent IPv4 address family configuration mode commands.

     
    Step 5 unicast-reachability [source-as | vrf-route-import] [disable]


    Example:
    Device(config-router-af)# unicast-reachability source-as disable
     

    Disables advertising extended communities for non-MVPN profiles.

     
    Step 6 end


    Example:
    Device(config-router-af)# end
     

    Exits address family configuration mode and enters privileged EXEC mode.

     

    Configuration Examples for BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

    Example: Configuring BGP MVPN Source-AS Extended Community Filtering

    The following example configures BGP MVPN source-AS extended community filtering:

    Device# configure terminal
    Device(config)# router bgp 45000
    Device(config)# address-family ipv4 vrf vpn1
    Device(config-router-af)# unicast-reachability source-as disable
    Device(config-router-af)# exit
    

    The following example shows summary output for the show ip bgp vpnv4 vrf vpn1 command.

    Device# show ip bgp vpnv4 vrf vpn1
