BGP Backdoor


Working on the simulation to show how BGP network x.x.x.x backdoor is working. So in the below example i have router which is configured with backdoor, when IGP (OSPF) is running i see this route in routing table, but from curiosity i shut that link to see if my route ( will show up in bgp table. It is not showing up? My understanding of the backdoor is that it will be advertised to eBGP peers once IGP link go down, also this is local subnet to this router so i imagined that would be advertised right away?
