Re: External data Keywork on ROute

Hello Rupesh,

EIGRP external routes data structures contain additional fields:

the EIGRP router-id of the router that injected the route in the EIGRP domain.

10.3.1.2.

The protocol from which the route has been learned is BGP with BGP as number 65040.

the route tag is a copy of BGP AS number (this is a default).

The BGP metric MED is 0.

This information is carried to provide a way to rebuild (at least partially the AS path cannot be rebuilt) the original BGP route in another node.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
