Usage Guidelines

By default, the clients of a route reflector are not required to be fully meshed and the routes from a client are reflected to other clients. However, if the clients are fully meshed, route reflection is not required. In this case, use the no client-to-client reflection command to disable client-to-client reflection.

Examples

This example shows how to configure a router as a route reflector:

switch(config)# router bgp 50000
switch(config-router)# address-family ipv4 multicast
switch(config-router-af)# client-to-client reflection
switch(config-router-af)#
