BGP with VRF-Lite

Unanswered Question
Mar 12th, 2009

Hi,

I have two Catalyst 6500 running BGP between VRF instances. I have IOS 12.2(33)SXH3 on both devices.

Everythings works well, prefixes are exchanged as designed. The only problem I have is that I don't find the right command to see the BGP TCP session state between both Catalyst. The command "show ip bgp summary" does not display anything between devices becaus I don't use the global plane. So, how can I see the same information for each VRF ?

Here is my configuration of one Catalyst:

router bgp 65372

no synchronization

bgp log-neighbor-changes

timers bgp 3 9

no auto-summary

!

address-family ipv4 vrf FR01RT08

no synchronization

neighbor 10.56.3.29 remote-as 65116

neighbor 10.56.3.29 description * CH01RT07 - Security Z4

neighbor 10.56.3.29 password 7 00331B07107E07150A

neighbor 10.56.3.29 activate

network 10.56.25.0 mask 255.255.255.0

exit-address-family

!

address-family ipv4 vrf FR01RT02

no synchronization

neighbor 10.56.3.25 remote-as 65116

neighbor 10.56.3.25 description * CH01RT01 - Security Z3

neighbor 10.56.3.25 password 7 01240E054F2E0A1C24

neighbor 10.56.3.25 activate

network 10.56.21.0 mask 255.255.255.0

network 10.56.22.0 mask 255.255.255.0

network 10.56.23.0 mask 255.255.255.0

network 10.56.24.0 mask 255.255.255.0

exit-address-family

!

Thank you for any help

Yves

Hello Yves,

you can use

sh ip bgp vpnv4 all summary to get information about vpnv4 and VRF based BGP sessions

note: this release should support also vpnv6 so you need to type the whole keyword (we have almost the same release on several C6500)

Hope to help

Giuseppe
