4500 vrf support

Answered Question
Oct 20th, 2009

I've got a doubt. I must configure some bgp peerings with some provider and i must use vrf to separate customers flows from corporate flows. We will use for this A Catalyst 4500 with the last IOS 12.2.53SG enterprise.

Is it supported or no? I thought that yes but now i've got a big doubt ...Thanks for your answers.

I have this problem too.

SUP IV (WS-X4515). We won't use MPLS but only the vrf-lite feature...I feel very relieved with your answer :)...In fact the bgp address-family support was not clearly indicated .....

I'm having a scotch now and can breath normally :)...

Hello Berkous,

what supervisor model is in your switch?

check it with sh model

supervisor model counts too.

But generally speaking VRF lite is supported on most C4500 supervisors

Hope to help
