Can't find much on why i would recieve this error.

I have a typical IBGP setup with Route Reflection. I have two peering routers. I recieve the standard routes i allow via a community. When i try to pass this community to my new peer, nothing is advertised. Any suggestions.

Here is a basic snipit of my bgp config--

neighbor IBGP-AR peer-group

neighbor IBGP-AR remote-as X>X>X>X

neighbor IBGP-AR update-source Loopback0

neighbor IBGP-AR send-community

neighbor IBGP-AR soft-reconfiguration inbound

neighbor IBGP-AR route-map IBGP-AR out

(this route map tags my local community) sending my customer routes.

I didnt fully understand ur question, but as I understood that u have 3 IBGP peers with a route-reflector in between , am I right? and you are applying a rout-map policy to one of the IBGP neighbors and tag it with a community value , right? but when u tag it , no BGP routes received by the peering router?

kindly confirm the following if the above is the case:

1- do u receive BGP routes from this neighbor?

2- Have u set any community attribute at ur peering router, so when it advertises u the routes , its tagged with a community?

3- what community attribute u are setting in the peer-groups and why?

kindly provide a wide picture for ur Setup & what u are trying to accomplish?

Sorry for late response...

1. I have an IBGP session with my directly connected neighbor session and its my Core router - My core has a EBGP session recieving full routes.

2. on my DR - device directly connected, i recieve from another peer local routes via a community string which is tagged via a route map.

my DR does not pass the tagged traffic which is should along to my directly connected neighboring router.
