LISP-Related Configuration Commands

lig

To initiate a Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) Internet Groper (lig) operation for a destination endpoint identifier (EID) or to test the routers’ local EID prefix(es), use the lig command in privileged EXEC mode.

lig { hostname | destination-EID } [ count count ] [ source source-EID ] [ to map-resolver ]

lig self all [ count count ] [ source source-EID ] [ to map-resolver ]

lig self [ ipv4 | ipv6 ] [all-eid] [ count count ] [ source source-EID ] [ to map-resolver ]

Syntax Description

hostname

Destination hostname.

destination-EID

Destination IPv4 or IPv6 Endpoint Identifier (EID) for the lig operation.

count count

(Optional) Send this number of map requests (value between 1 and 5).

source source-EID

(Optional) Send the map request using this IPv4 or IPv6 source EID.

to map resolver

(Optional) Send the map request to this map resolver locator instead of the configured map resolver.

self

Use lig to test if the local EID prefix is registered in the mapping database.

all

(Optional) Specifies that a map request is sent for all local EIDs configured on the router (IPv4 and IPv6).

ipv4

(Optional) Specifies that map requests should be sent only for local IPv4 EIDs configured on the router.

ipv6

(Optional) Specifies that map requests should be sent only for local IPv6 EIDs configured on the router.

all-eid

(Optional) Used in conjunction with the ipv4 or ipv6 keyword, specifies that a map request is sent for all local EIDs configured on the router in the referenced address family.

Usage Guidelines

This command initiates a LISP Internet Groper (lig) query for the indicated destination hostname or EID, or the routers local EID-prefix. The lig function is analogous to the domain name service (DNS)-related dig function. Use this command as a simple means of testing whether a destination EID exists in the LISP mapping database system, or as a convenient way to see if your site is registered with the mapping database system.

When a lig query is initiated with a hostname or destination EID, the router sends a map request to the configured map resolver for the indicated destination hostname or EID. When a map reply is returned, its contents are displayed to the user and entered in the LISP map-cache.

When a lig self query is initiated, the routers local EID prefix is substituted in place of the destination EID when the router sends a map request to the configured map resolver.

By default, at a minimum one map request is sent to the map resolver but up to three map requests may be sent to the map resolver. After a map reply is returned for a map request, no further map requests are sent. When the count option is applied, the specified number of map requests is sent.

By default, the source of the map request will be the first configured EID-prefix for the site (with the host-bit set to zero). For example, if the local EID-prefix is 172.16.21.0/24, the source EID will be 172.16.21.0 for the map request. When the source option is applied, a specific source EID may be used. However, the source-EID must be one of the EID addresses assigned to the LISP router.

When the lig command is used with the self option, the destination EID will also be the first configured EID prefix for the site (with the host-bit set to zero). For example, if the local EID-prefix is 172.16.21.0/24, the destination EID will be 172.16.21.0 for the map request.

By default when lig is invoked, the map request is sent to the configured map resolver. When the to option is used, the map request is forwarded to the specified map resolver instead.Sending a map request to a different map resolver can be useful for testing that your EID prefix has been properly injected into the Alternative Logical Topology (ALT) infrastructure. In this case, the lig map request is processed by the specified map resolver and propagated through each ALT router hop to the map server you have registered to. The map server returns the map request to your site. Your site then generates a map reply to the source of the map request ( which could be itself, or a different xTR within your LISP site).

Examples

The following example shows how to display all LISP map-cache entries and then use the lig command for the EID-prefix 172.16.10.0/24.
