BGP RR and OSPF

Hi,

Here is what I have setup in the lab and for some reason I don't get BGP reflected routes as best route in the route-reflector-client's routing table. I know it has to do with OSPF. If I use RIP the same routes appear as the best routes. Any ideas as to what am I doing wrong here.

Router#1 (Acts as RR)

router ospf 1

log-adjacency-changes

network 172.16.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 0

!

router bgp 3

bgp log-neighbor-changes

redistribute ospf 1 match internal external 1 external 2

neighbor 172.16.1.2 remote-as 3 (To Router#1)

neighbor 172.16.1.2 route-reflector-client

neighbor 172.16.10.2 remote-as 3 (To Router#2)

neighbor 172.16.10.2 route-reflector-client

Router#2 (RR-client#1)

interface Loopback100

ip address 172.16.65.1 255.255.255.0

router ospf 1

log-adjacency-changes

network 172.16.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 0

router bgp 3

bgp log-neighbor-changes

neighbor 172.16.1.1 remote-as 3 (To RR)

Router#3 (RR-Client#2)

router ospf 1

log-adjacency-changes

network 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 area 0

!

router bgp 3

bgp log-neighbor-changes

neighbor 172.16.10.1 remote-as 3 (To RR)

Here is my BGP routing table on RR-Client#2

RR-Client#2 show ip bgp

BGP table version is 31, local router ID is 172.16.10.2

Status codes: s suppressed, d damped, h history, * valid, > best, i - internal

*>i172.16.220.0/24 172.16.220.1 0 100 0 ?

Everything else is fine but 172.16.65.0/24 route is not selected as the best route when I use OSPF as IGP. This route is originated from RR-Client#1.

I checked the RouterID for BGP and OSPF both matches I am not sure what else to check.

Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

could we get a "sh ip bgp 172.16.65.0 255.255.255.0" and a 'sh ip route 172.16.65.0" and a 'sh ip ospf data"

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

Hi,

I will get you that in few minuets . You can easily reproduce this by setting up three routers one as RR and other two as clients. Use OSPF as IGP and also try RIP. In my testing RIP works fine but it's the OSPF that gives the problem.

Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

No. The router id is not matched yet. For Router3, The BGP router id is the RR's ID, not the Originator router id. So it is different.

There are something you can do.

1. Do not use ospf;

or

2. In your case, all router are physical full meshed( Am I right?), so you can do in the RR with this command ' no bgp client-to-client reflection', and definde bgp neighbor in both RR-client.

Are there any choice? Please let me know if it work. Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

HI,

I am sorry but I am not sure what you mean by router id is not matched for Router3.

If i do "show ip bgp" and "show ip ospf " i am seeing the same Router-id.

As you said if i use RIP as IGP it works fine. I am not sure why it doesn't work with OSPF. Would you be able to explain why?

The problem is very easy to reproduce.

Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

From: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/459/25.shtml,

'If the matching route is learned from an OSPF neighbor, its OSPF router ID must match the BGP router ID of the iBGP neighbor.'

The router id here concerned is router where the route learned from, not the router itself.

So for your case, the BGP ID is RR' router ID, OSPF ID is Router2' ID.

Note: I am looking for a networking job and cannot practice. So if I am wrong, please let me know. Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

Thanks for pointing that out.

Any solution for this? Does this mean you can not use OSPF with RR or confederation?

Thanks

Re: BGP RR and OSPF

Disable BGP synchronization.

That is one of few workarounds that i don't want to try right now.
