General routing and vrf routing

Hi All,

I would like to know what takes precedence.

I had on static route configured with no vrf and I had exactly the same route but with a vrf tag.

What takes precedence and if anyone knows of a pdf about the issue I wild appreciate the link.

TIA.

Re: General routing and vrf routing

Hi Jack,

When you configure static route without vrf, it will be in global routing table and when you configure with vrf tag, it will be placed in the mentioned VRF routing table.

So when a packet is received on this router,  decision will be taken based on the incoming interface. If the incoming interface is in global rable, lookup will happen on global routing table. If the interface is part of any VRF, lookup will happen on that specific VRF routing table.

So to my knowledge,  there wont be race between static route in global table and VRF table.

Regards,

Nagendra
