there are about 1400 routes in the VRF RIP database on PE, approx 30 DSL routers(Cisco837 with same configs) connect PE via RIP V2. The problem is some CE routers receive the whole routing table, but some only get partial routes.
is it weird? has someone experienced the same thing? thanks
Does this problem happen on some specific routers of the 30 or randomly on any few.
You can try the below and update as to what is the effect.
1) Try increasing the interpacket delay for RIP updates. By default its none, but you may want to introduce a delay just in case to check if the packets being dropped is the reason for some routers not reflecting the updates.
Router(config)# router rip
2) Alternatively you can try triggered updates on the links connecting to your DSL routers. This will send updates only when there is a change and keep the periodic updates suppressed.
Router(config-if)#ip rip triggered
Please do update what is the effect.
