Re: Right way to create a route-map and reference it ...

I would like to know if I can reference a route-map first and then create it later.

Example :-

Conf t

Router bgp 200

Redistribute eigrp 21 route-map DENY_100


route-map DENY_100 deny 10

match tag 3650


route-map DENY_100 permit 65535

Question :-

1) If I reference the route-map and its not created, the impact to this is that the route-map action won't be done right ? There is no other impact isn't it ?

2) Would the better way to do this is to create a route-map and then reference it OR it does not really matter ?

Pls advice,

If the route-map is not defined the implicit deny all statement will apply and none of the routes will be redistributed

I made a quick test with 12.0(33)S.

Thanks Laurent. The reason for this question is that I noticed that the config guide reference the route-map first and then create it. If one were to put in the configs at the same time, there should be minimal impact but if someone has say two redistribution points and calls for the route-map first before creating them, then there could be an impact.

So the better way to do this is to create the route-map first and then reference it.

Thanks you Lauren ....
