Mysterious EVPN routes

    Hello everyone!


    I have the following EVPN+MPLS topology:


    PE1 ---- P ---- PE2


    I see these particular routes in PE1's mpls table:


    66       *[EVPN/7] 1d 19:18:09, remote-pe, routing-instance EVPN1, route-type Egress-MAC

              > to via ge-0/0/0.100, Push 49, Push 17(top)

    67       *[EVPN/7] 1d 19:18:09, remote-pe, routing-instance EVPN1, route-type Egress-IM, vlan-id 610

              > to via ge-0/0/0.100, Push 55, Push 17(top)



    I understand the presence of the following labels:

    49:  label in Type 2 routes received from PE2

    55:  label in Type 3 route received from PE2

    17:  transport label to get to PE2


    However, neither label 66 nor 67 has been advertised or received by PE1 – neither via BGP nor LDP.


    So where have labels 66 and 67 come from?

    This is should be the local label that is created in order to create the forwarding action in the mpls.0 table. IOS-XR also does the same, it assigns a local-label and advertise it downstream for the particular MPLS application being executed.
