I would appreciate some assistance here. We have a primary head office & a DR site. Routers at both sites connect to our carrier for an IP VPN service using BGP. BGP configs on each router advertise a default route 0.0.0.0.
#sh ip bgp neighbors x.x.x.x advertised-routes
BGP table version is 358, local router ID is x.x.x.x
Status codes: s suppressed, d damped, h history, * valid, > best, i - internal,
r RIB-failure, S Stale
Origin codes: i - IGP, e - EGP, ? - incomplete
Originating default network 0.0.0.0
Issue is, some of our remote sites prefer the DR router path for traffic destined to internet.
We are advertising multiple default routes to our carrier, and based on feedback from carrier, route with lowest MED is preferred.
This brings me to what i need to change from my side. Need to change the route preference so that from our remote offices, only the route to head office is preferred with DR site the least preferred route. I know there are multliple ways of doing this, however keen to get input from the experts out there.
DR site router has this BGP config currently applied:
router bgp XXXXX
redistribute ospf 1 match internal external 1 external 2
neighbor x.x.x.x remote-as XXXX
neighbor x.x.x.x default-originate
neighbor x.x.x.x soft-reconfiguration inbound
neighbor x.x.x.x route-map IMPORT-POLICY in
neighbor x.x.x.x route-map OPI-route-advertisement out
Removing the "neighbor x.x.x.x default-originate" is not an option, as we need to have the ability to failover to DR at any point.
Thanks in advance & if you need any further info pls advise.
