Hello, i am hoping someone can help answer the following question.
If i create a VRF on a switch (to provide traffic seperation on a remote site switch) and place an SVI in that VRF but do not enable MP-BGP, is there a VRF tag applied to traffic on that vlan? Therefore, if i have trunk connection to my SP (Layer2 VPN) that carries the VLAN that my SVI belongs to, will my HQ site that connects to the same VLAN, need to be VRF aware? Or will i still be able to establish an EIGRP peering between remote sites?
HQ and remote site have EIGRP peering established, over VLAN10. The vlan is extended end to end via the SP L2 VPN. Both HQ and remote office switches are currently using global routing table.
I want to create a new VRF at remote site and place the SVI for theVLAN that connects to the HQ in that VRF. Will the HQ and remote office still be able to form EIGRP neighbor?
The HQ will see the regular route, no RD or RT attached. In fact, VRF-Lite will not care about the RD or RT configured (verified with a sniffer trace). Some older software will force you to configure it but the newer one will not. However, it is always a best practice to configure it.
Just set it up in the lab... basically you don't use the stamping.
Attached are the configs for HQ and Remote.
HQ is using a native table and a VLAN 10 sub-interface to the Remote router.
Remote is running VRF-lite with a VLAN 10 and 20 subinterface of which 10 is coupled to vrf "eigrp_vrf." It wasn't working for a minute until I added the autonomous-system command to the address family... which was giving me a minor headache.
