4500 vrf support

I've got a doubt. I must configure some bgp peerings with some provider and i must use vrf to separate customers flows from corporate flows. We will use for this A Catalyst 4500 with the last IOS 12.2.53SG enterprise.

Is it supported or no? I thought that yes but now i've got a big doubt ...Thanks for your answers.

Re: 4500 vrf support

VRF-lite feature is supported on Cat 4500 but switch does not use MPLS to support VPN's

What supervisor engine do you have on the cat 4500?

Re: 4500 vrf support

I have check the IOS 12.2(53)SG enterprise (cat4500-entservicesk9-mz.122-53.SG.bin ) for CAT4500-SUP4. Multi-VRF Support (VRF lite) is supported...

Use the Cisco Feature Navigator to see what is supported on your supervisor card...

Re: 4500 vrf support

SUP IV (WS-X4515). We won't use MPLS but only the vrf-lite feature...I feel very relieved with your answer :)...In fact the bgp address-family support was not clearly indicated .....

I'm having a scotch now and can breath normally :)...

Re: 4500 vrf support

Hello Berkous,

what supervisor model is in your switch?

check it with sh model

supervisor model counts too.

But generally speaking VRF lite is supported on most C4500 supervisors

Hope to help

Giuseppe
