A classless network generated when you issue the network BGP configuration command is not advertised

Core Issue

In order for Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to advertise a classless network generated by issuing the network BGP configuration command, a valid route must exist in the routing table.


A valid route is an exact route matching the network/address pair used in the network BGP configuration command.

For more information on BGP route advertising issues, refer to the Troubleshooting BGP Route Advertisement section of Troubleshooting BGP.
