  • 1.  AS-Loop question

    Posted 03-28-2022 05:41
    I have following topology
    When I tried what Prefix received from 65432 on the vrf router,  I got AS loop
    root@MX-1#  run show route logical-system LS-1 receive-protocol bgp hidden extensive
    LA-Demo.inet.0: 6 destinations, 7 routes (5 active, 0 holddown, 1 hidden) (1 entry, 0 announced)
         AS path: 65432 65434 65535 65534 I
         Hidden reason: AS path loop

    Any insight ??

    thanks !!

    With eBGP peers the standard requires that the peer ignore and hide prefixes from the same AS to prevent loops.  

    When using eBGP for a wan distribution like this you would need to assign a unique AS to each site on the network from the private AS range.
